I like the symmetry in those #s. All the best w/ the audition later!!
Time is definitely precious. Thanks regarding the audition!

By the way Wizard, thanks for checking out my journal, it's good to know you are still around the boards since you don't post too much.

Thanks!

Well, I drove down and was extremely early, so I sat in my car and listened to conservative radio for about 45 minutes.

3:30 rolls around, I get in line for the open call, it was super quick, filled out a form of basic information, get called up, they take your picture 3 times; head, waist up, full body and that's pretty much it. I had brought some photos with me to give to them, when the lady who was handling the open call saw mine she did go "Wow!" at this picture:



That made me feel good, she also asked me if anyone ever told me I looked like Chris Daughtry:



I tell her no, and she says, "Well, you are better looking than Daughtry!"

Of course, that was a nice ego boost. Before I was called up, I got to watch this lady's interation with the other potential models, and I must say, no one had quite the positive response and interaction that I had. So I feel good about that.

After that, I figured that I drove to Pittsburgh and paid for parking, I might as well participate in the open call for acting as well. So, I head down the hall and wait. Pretty soon it's my turn, I get to meet the connection that my friend had at the talent agency and when she saw the pictures she asked if I was a trainer. That felt nice. Then she handed me my lines and I had to do a one man commercial for a local telephone company. It was cheesy, I think I stunk personally, but overall I believe that I made a nice impression.

I will hear in about 2 weeks if they are interested in using me in an acting bits or modeling/photo shoots.

Keep praying for me if you don't mind!

The best part....5 minutes into my drive home, my car craps out, and I could only do about 20 to 25 mph, anything higher would race the RPM because it wouldn't shift up into higher gear. I have no idea what happened, my trip home took WAY longer than expected, but at least I could safely get home. I had my blinkers on the whole way and a few people yelled and honked at me...not sure how that was supposed to help me fix my car or make me go faster, but if it made them feel better, more power to them, lol!

My car is in the shop (see a few posts above!), so my wife had to drive me to work today....which means no lunch workout because I don't have a way home....which means only an AM workout when everyone was sleeping.....which means no deadlifting because that would wake everyone up in my house!....did arms today instead, will move deadlifts to Saturday this week.

I like the nickname, ha, ha!

And thanks, the illusion of bodybuilding is crazy, I look more jacked now in the 170's than I did when I was tipping 200 pounds!

I just hope as I gain weight, I can gain it in the right places and keep looking jacked.

New Macros:
Non-training - 3616 calories, 114 fat, 408 carbs, 240 protein
With Paraworkout nutrition - 4392, 122, 504, 320
