On The Verge!!!

Something pretty big is about to happen to me. This has been something that I have been waiting to happen since I moved to Los Angeles last October. I don't want to say anything more about it until it's completely official, but this could potentially be very beneficial to my future in the entertainment biz and to my career as a whole. Stay tuned...

Job Interviews...

On my death bed, when I'm looking back on my life I will come to remember the year 2007 as the year of job interviews. I can't tell you how many interviews I have been on this year. The story usually goes like this:

1. Find job posting online and/or hear about opening from coworker.
2. Send resume
3. Recieve call to schedule interview
4. Interview
5. WAIT (why does this seem to take the longest)
6. Get a call/email saying "we really liked you but we decided to go with someone else."
7. Start over again.

In my defense, I have been pretty picky with my job search, so I have been up against some pretty stiff competition. Now, I'm currently waiting to have my second interview for a REALLY great job prospect. I have a really good feeling about this I'll just wait in the meantime

Is the end nigh, for REAL?

It seemed to be just another weekend, that was until a meteorite struck down near a rural village in Southern Peru. Officials are now reporting that many of the townsfolk that visited the impact site are falling ill with symptoms including headaches, diarrhea and nausea. Government Health Officials are trying to determine what is causing people to get sick and one has been sighted saying the illnesses were the result of a strong odor emanating from the site of the impact.

The Associated Press filed this report on the incident Tuesday, September 18 2007(see below).

Now this may not seem like a very big deal to any of you, but this little crash landing has me a little concerned. In fact, if you are not, you should be and let me tell you exactly why. There are multiple science-fiction/Horror movies that begin with an interplanetary meteor crash landing on earth. I can think of at least three that start exactly like that: The Blob, Slither and War of the Worlds (1953). All three of which begin with a meteor crash landing on earth unexpectedly. In all three, some curious villager(s) see the meteor flash through the night sky and crash in the woods nearby. They then proceed up to the crash site to investigate the crater. Of course this poor decision starts a chain reaction that leads to events that quickly spiral out of control and put the human race's very existence in jeopardy.

This 1988 trailer gives a brief summary of what we quite possibly have to look forward to..

*The Blob (1988)

I know my claims are a little far fetched, but wouldn't you rather be prepared for the worst case scenario. You never know just how accurate our imaginations can be. One moment it's a scary science-fiction horror movie, the next, reality.
