Becareful what you do when you just want to work in TV!!

August 29, 2007 at 11:05 am (babbling, Entertainment, TV) (, )

This is why I love to work behind the scenes… my face won’t show up on some project I worked on later in my career and make me feel shameful!! It’s typically just my name, and even then very few people actually read credits.

Before they were famous.

Proof the US Education System is failing students…

Watch This.

a quote from it “I personally believe that many Iraq, South Africa for our children… Americans … there is a shortage help south africa and places such as of maps and we should…”

And for more entertainment watch:


Cracks me up every time.

If you are wondering, Sam’s still on the movie. He’s primarily working 7pm until 7am, meaning he leaves before I’m home and then comes home after I’ve left for work.

The little things

August 4, 2007 at 11:37 pm (babbling) (, , )

I went and watched this video for one reason alone: this week in Entertainment Weekly Stephen King wrote an entire page motivated by this video. Stephen King, who brought us It, Apt Pupil, The Green Mile, Firestarter, Misery, and so many more works that will be remembered for decades to come.

And what motivates this man??? A balding man dancing in a best buy.

The idea that something so simple would make a man of King’s talent stop everything he was doing and not only watch, but smile is empowering. Let alone the fact it inspired him to write a whole page on the matter. I’m glad I’m a person who sees and enjoys the little things. And I hope I can find inspiration in these places as well.

Top Model Tribute

August 3, 2007 at 10:58 pm (babbling, TV) (, , )

As most of you know I worked on 2 seasons of America’s Next Top Model. It was great experience and a lot of fun as I watched the show before I worked there. This however is the best tribute I’ve seen yet. Go here Planet Unicorn and watch Episode 4.

I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

BTW Tyra is very nice in real life. And no I can’t tell you secrets I’ve signed a confidentiality agreement.

Baby Names

July 25, 2007 at 4:37 pm (babbling, Baby Names) (, , , )

Let’s just get this out of the way first: no Sam and I aren’t pregnant.

Yesterday a friend of mine in IL (Trish) and I were on IM trying to think of baby names for another friend who’s baby is due in December. The requirement was that they seem to like last names used a first names, and the baby is a girl. It’s harder than you think, because most last names are masculine: Jacobson, Manning, Smith, Hitchcock, Feldman etc.

This is the list we came up with:

Peyton Manning Herbert, Jesse Porche Herbert, Hayley Brooke Herbert, the father’s idea: Frigg N. Herbert, Schwartz Rose Herbert, Schnider Serenity Herbert, January Rain Herbert, Fillion Isabella Herbert, Picard Madona Herbert, Baldwin Betty Herbert,
Lucas Meadow Herbert, Wheaton Inara Herbert, Macy Rae Herbert, Mercy Me Herbert, Chase Kelly Herbert, Craft Ryan Herbert, Chase Muscle Herbert, Chase Schwartzenegger Herbert, Chase Sarah Herbert, Burr Cold Herbert, Gellar Michelle Herbert, Lee Anne Herbert, Love Ew Herbert, Carrey Leigh Herbert, Lara Angela Herbert, Kelly Alison Herbert, Ainsley Vivian Herbert, Emma Leigh O’Brien (already claimed by the other friend), Luna Stephanie Herbert, Hope Lee Herbert, Taylor Shana Herbert, Taylor Melody Herbert, Melrose Joy Herbert, Buneigh Keelor Herbert, Scully Jean Herbert, Jean Elizabeth Herbert, Brooke Andrea Herbert… and then work was over and we both got to go home.

Hopefully if anything that gave you a good laugh. And extra points if you are able to follow our train of thought. haha

Chuck and Larry

July 24, 2007 at 4:08 pm (babbling, movies, religion) (, , )

Last night Sam and I ventured to the AMC at Universal Citywalk with our friends Natalie #2 and her husband Andrew to see “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.”

I typically enjoy Adam Sandler, and was in need of a good laugh. Overall the theatre was nice: HUGE plushy seats, free refills for those glutenous moments, nice size screen, the audience was respectful. It was a theatre I will feel comfortable going back to, unlike other AMCs in the city…but that’s another discussion. I enjoyed the movie, and think it was a fun date out.

This blog is about the horrible sinking sensation I felt in my stomach at a certain part in the film. Our heroes have gone to an AIDS benefit costume party. At the conclusion of the party they step outside to be hounded by a group of right-winged Christians. I myself am a Socialist and Christian. I know there are other Christians out there who behave in this manner. I have been fortunate to grow up in Toronto, Canada and now live in LA where that behavior is rare. This scene made me so sad. As a Christian you are called to love, and not to judge. For people to behave this way makes me ashamed. Yet I don’t know what to do about it. It makes me not want to tell people I’m a Christian at all. And it makes me cheer when our heroes finally punch the silly man with the ice cold heart.

The only saving point for me, in the film was near the end when the “pastor” says something to the effect of: I now pronounce you husband and husband, by the great Provence of Ontario, which is in Canada and has not had the closed minded views that our neighbor to the South has.

I have gay and lesbian friends and co-workers. I love them all, and I apologize from the bottom of my heart for the injustice and cruelty they’ve had to undergo. And I beg of you, please do not judge all Christian’s by the actions of a few.
