Acting Update

This morning, between the hours of nine and eleven, I'm going to be on tv doing little spots for Snoopy. If you're in San Diego, the station is KUSI.

Frankly, I'm a little surprised that we're doing this spot because this weekend is our last weekend, and, as far as I've heard, the weekend is largely sold out. It seems funny to me to advertise for something that people can't come to anyway...but that's me.

Also, last night, we had a test audience for our Godspell run-thru. Their ages spanned the gamut from teenagers to retirees. The directors had a meeting with them afterwards to see what they thought, and I will be very interested to hear what they had to say. Unfortunately for me, the directors will likely talk about what the group said at tonight's rehearsal, which I will be missing due to the Snoopy performance. I'll just have to ask around, I guess.

For what it's worth, the audience seemed to really like it, and many of the jokes in the show made people of different ages laugh, which is good, because a lot of what we're doing in this show is very pop culture oriented, and I was worried that some of the oldest people wouldn't get all the references.

Ooh! I want to know what they thought! I love that show, and I hope that they did too.

If anybody's considering going to Godspell, you can get two for one tickets the first weekend (August 11-13) if you call CCT (619.588.0206) and tell them that you're friends with somebody in the cast, namely, me.

UPDATE: The Snoopy thing for KUSI came and went. It was kind of fun, but more than that it was ridiculous, as we just kind of stood around, until we were randomly pointed at to wave at the camera.

I got to sing one of my songs, which was cool to be able to sing a solo on tv.

Oh well. It could be worse, right?

UPDATE 2: It turns out that there were still seats to be sold for a fundraiser that a different community group was having at one of our performances, so, with that in mind, it was a good idea to promote it on tv. I didn't know that that was the case.

Please, for me, when you're on the TV, stop in the middle of everything, look into right into the camera and say, "WHEN ON THE INTERNET, VISIT ANALYSTCATALYST.BLOGSPOT.COM - I LOVE SUPERAUSTIN."

And then find someone to tape it for me.

OK, that would rock. I am with SuperAustin on this one.

Oh man, I wish I would have seen these before I did it. I wouldn't put it past myself to have done such blatant self-promotion.

And by blatant self-promotion, I mean awesomeness.

Thany said...

Lets call it "Blatant Self Awesomeness"

That is funny, I like it.

Thany said...

If that is on the shirt, you can count on a purchase from me for sure!!

The new look is great, AC. You make shirts and I'll buy one too!

Was the song you sang on TV in any way influenced by my favourite composer Charles Ives?

Analyst Catalyst said...

Rob, it was influenced only inasmuch as they didn't have time for the whole song, so we cut it a bit without really practicing, which gave off, in my mind at least, a kind of random-feeling-ness that I get from some Ives.

Also, it's nice to meet a fellow lover of Ives!

Rob said...

Yes Ives was very flexible about performance of course.
