Playa Del Carmen Trip Report

12 May

Here is a video montage I put together using music from Mexican band Belanova of our trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in May 2011:

And here is a link to my complete photo album of this trip.

Night 1

We arrive late night in Cancun airport. Here is a tip I have not read anywhere else; call your bank before you go and not only tell them you’ll be in Mexico, but ask them if they are affiliated with any branches in Mexico. My bank, Bank of America, told me they are affiliated with Santander bank and if I use those ATms id save on fees. So I find a Santander ATM right outside customs and withdraw pesos for the evening and the next day.

I had arranged for a driver to pick us up and take us to the Hotel Casa Ticul. We get to the hotel around midnight, unpack and exhausted fall asleep. (beds are SUPER comfortable)

Greece – Athens – Santorini – Milos Trip Report Part 2

14 Mar

In May of 2009 my girlfriend Holly and I traveled to Greece and visited Athens and the Cyclades Islands of Santorini and Milos. I will split this blog post into three parts by destination. You can view all photos of the trip here (my photos) and here (Holly’s Photos). This is part 2 of 3. Part 1 is here

So we arrive at the port of Athens, buy our Ferry tickets and board the Ferry. We got tickets on the “slow” ferry instead of the premium fast ferry. It was fairly relaxing to be on this type of Ferry. Provided it is not super cold, you can hang out on the deck watching the sea go by, and the Ferry usually stops at various other Greek Islands al0ng the Cyclades so you get a mini-tour.

Dramatic squirrel versus cats encounter

10 May

Here is some very dramatic footage I shot this morning of my cats freaking out over a very close encounter of the squirrel kind.

I am fairly sure that music is the same music running through every squirrels head. As for cats, I am pretty certain if you were to delve into their furry little minds you would see this.

My Acting Monologue

22 May

Here is a shitty quality video of me practicing my monologue, I am delivering this monologue tomorrow for Betsy Royall casting here in Baltimore:

Version 1

Version 2
(I just added this 2nd version)

Someone else’s take on the same monologue

I never claimed to be great lol, you should see some A-list stars act, as bad as this is I know for a fact it’s better than some A-list guys I saw “act” in person. It’s what encouraged me to try harder in acting, if someone THAT BAD can make it, literally anyone can.

I’m happy I even am getting an opportunity with her, she’s a big casting agent.

Step Up 2 The Streets photos and trailer and more

30 Jan

Step Up 2 The Streets Poster

There is a great New Step Up 2 The Streets dance mash up video up that everyone needs to watch.

This video shows many of the same scenes from the official trailer but shows WAY more dancing. My friends alex and keith do their 2-man helicopter in the youtube clip at around the 1:29 mark. It might interest you guys to know at the 0:41 mark in the youtube clip the person doing the headspins is a girl. Her name is Shorty Welch. You can see me in the youtube clip at around the 0:57 mark.

My photobucket album of Step Up 2. This has a bunch of photos of when the movie’s lead Rob Hoffman went and danced with us, literally, on the street and also in clubs of course. It was cool that he was able to see what the Baltimore bboy scene is like before he started filming. I hope this influence shows in the final film. I am also very excited and happy for my friend Jeff Ogle (bboy Rapid) who at the 2007 auditions beat out every other bboy and landed a major role in the movie as a member of the fictional bboy crew 410. Congrats to Jeff!!! It was cool to get to be in a small scene between Rapid, Rob, and several of my closest friends including Qu3st, seizure, Goof and amarilles.

Here are some of my older posts about step up 2:
