YESSSSS! I Booked A National!

I just got the call about an hour ago…
 
“You want a job?” my agent said.
 
Now usually, when I get released from first refusal,
I just get an email-  “You’re released” from my agent’s assistant.Sometimes the office calls to check my availability,

so when I picked up the phone, I didn’t think much.But it was my Agent.

And she likes to call with good news.

But it’s been OVER A YEAR since I booked anything,

and even though I knew I am on hold for two things right now,
I was trying to keep my cool.The truth is that I like my life right now- I get to be with my wife

and son all the time, at the playground, the zoo, whatever.But not booking anything for over a year was weighing HEAVILY

on me.– Have I gotten too old? Have I aged out?
– I know I look tired these days, my eyes have these bags
– I’m less fit as I used to be (eating ice cream like er’y night!)

– My hairline is retreating like a Trump supporter,
– this bald spot on the top of my head is shiny as a mutha fucka!So when I heard her say “You want a job?” with a smile in her voice,

I was hopeful, but I didn’t want to get too excited.“Um… sure, whatcha got for me?”

“You booked it!”

I said “[company name]?”

She said “YES! NATIONAL, maybe a print component, cable, etc”

It was only then that I allowed myself to be happy.

(Do you know what I mean?)

It was only then that I allowed my face to indicate to my wife that it was good news.

Before that moment, I didn’t want to disappoint her AGAIN.

I had stopped telling her when I thought I did a good job at the callback.

And even though I know it’s a numbers game,
And even though I know that I have a great callback ratio

and even though I know that I may have been wonderful at EVERY audition,
that sometimes it has nothing to do with me (especially in commercials)…
I started doubting.Big time.

 
But guess what?And I want you to remember this forever- FOR THE REST OF YOUR CAREER…

It just so happens that THIS TIME…

They wanted a guy who was a little older.
They wanted a guy who looks a little tired
They wanted a guy who was a little less fit
They wanted a guy whose hairline was receding and had a shiny bald spot.

(Ok, ok- I’m just guessing about the bald spot)The truth is that in our business, they need ALL TYPES and always will.

They might use more types more often, but if you keep

doing the numbers, you have to win.You HAVE to win if you keep playing the numbers.

The catch?

You have to play the RIGHT numbers.

I have been playing the commercial numbers for years.
and I have booked dozens of commercials, and made hundreds of thousands

of dollars acting in commercials.
 
Seriously- over $400,000.I have been playing the numbers with making money online,

and as a result, I haven’t had a day job in over 15 years, which
allowed me to play the commercial numbers!This ONE spot could be anywhere from $500 to $100,000

(or more), and it will be a ONE DAY shoot.Playing the right numbers can pay off big.

 
HOWEVER- If I want a better TV career, (and I keep “saying” I want one)
then I have to start playing the TV numbers.

I have to start playing the TV AUDITION numbers, which right now

I play at almost zero.You can’t win if you’re not playing the numbers.

So- two things:

1- If you stick in there and play the numbers, you can win.

2- It’s easier to play the numbers without a day job,

So CLICK THIS LINK RIGHT NOW and quit your day job.If you want to have your time free to do what you want, this is the way

I have done it. It doesn’t mean you’ll do it too, but I know what happens
if you don’t even try.I hope you decide to GET IN THE GAME!

– Bones

Here’s For Your F*cking Conscience, and Your 3rd Party Bullshit.

I have several friends who are the hippiest of the hippies, and I love you all.

I have been having several conversations with you lately, being as patient and understanding as I can because you’re the good people.

The ones who want to bring the world better.

You want the world to do better and to be better.

And I have been keeping a lot of my truth from you in order to best see things from your perspective.

So this letter is to bring you my perspective; or at least, a different perspective.

Here’s what I mean….
 
Yes, you feel that Hillary is evil, and that Trump is evil, so you don’t see much of a difference. What you want is for something different.
 
What you want is for some American leader to stop wars, fighting, and maybe actually help the world come together.
 
Great.
 
Enter the dream of the third party.
 
It’s a great dream.
I’m for it too.
I think most people are.
 
You don’t want to have to choose between two evils.
 
So let me be REAL here.
 
(Note: I will be using “us”, “we” and “them” interchangeably here.)
 
For African Americans, EVERY CHOICE IS EVIL.
 
Every single choice that doesn’t create reparations, bring the black population to an EQUITABLE standing after suffering what is without question the worst crime ever perpetrated on Humanity the world has ever known- is EVIL.
 
(Yes- worse than the Holocaust.)
 
The American dream?
 
AMERICA is evil to the African American.
 
There’s even no going back to Africa, because THAT has been raped and pillaged by the same people.
 
EVERY CHOICE is evil to African Americans because there has never been anyone trying to bring equitable justice, or actually make them (us) equal.
But we choose anyway.
 
Am I overstating? Nope. I’m probably still understating it.
 
RIGHT NOW, there are republicans all over the southern states making NEW LAWS to make it HARDER for blacks to vote.
 
Actually trying to prevent Americans from VOTING, which I believe is against the whole fucking point of our democracy.
 
Actually CLOSING polls in places so that they have to drive 100 miles out, and requiring drivers licenses that match their current address, redistricting their representatives, and other total bullshit- TO PREVENT THEM FROM VOTING.
 
There are people in arenas CHEERING over the death of Freddie Gray (who was handcuffed, but stll managed to die of a broken spine), while at the same time calling Black Lives Matter a divisive, terrorist hate group all the while yelling “blue lives matter”!

 
You wanna talk about “lesser of two evils“?
 
Please bitch- how about you suck up the fucking choice that you DO have, between 2 people trying to protect YOU- even if they are killing other people?
 
Oh- you don’t like that we bomb the middle east?
Me either.
 
But America will bomb anyone to keep it’s people on top- even other fucking Americans:
 
 
1921- A bunch of whites got mad and killed 400 blacks and destroyed MILLIONS of dollars of black property and businesses. Did you know that? Me either,
 
Our history calls it a “race riot”, but that’s completely inaccurate just to make it sound two-sided.
 
It wasn’t.
 
And nobody went to jail.
 
Excuse me- nobody WHITE.
 
And there’s shit like that from the 1400s all the way to Alton Sterling and whoever will get shot this week.
 
So tell me more about how you don’t like one version of the white person who will keep doing the shit we Americans do.
 
But that’s how it is.
 
That’s what is real in 2016, and even though it’s better than in 1916, it still ain’t shit.
 
But here we are, and some people actually want to go BACKWARDS.
To when American “was” great.
 
They want to go BACK to 1954- that’s the year the Trump people want to go back to.
 
Before all these uppity “African Americans” started marching.
 
But you tell me how you want to vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson because they are against fracking.
 
That’s voting your fucking conscience, is it?
 
You tell me how your conscience is more bothered by Hillary’s speeches to Wall street than giving the New Wanna Be Nazis a possibility of winning.
 
While you’re spreading doubt about Hillary to your other white third-partiers, you are giving more and more power to the Wanna Be Nazis.
 
Who want to ban muslims
Who want to deport immigrants
Who want to “fix” gay people, or put hem back in the closet
Who want to own women’s secuality and bodies
Who want to scream about “White Power” with the power of the President behind them.
 
But hey- it actually won’t affect you.
 
You can vote third party, 12th party, or whoever, and you can LOSE all day, and your life won’t change.
 
You won’t suddenly be told by half the country that they want to BAN YOUR RELIGION.
 
Or “Monitor” you.
 
No matter how many white men shoot up innocent victims and CHILDREN, you aren’t getting on a watch list.
 
So, there’s for your fucking conscience, and your 3rd party bullshit.
 
Dream about third party in one hand, shit in the other, and whichever comes out first, throw it on your non-white, muslim, and gay neighbors:
 
Good?
