Cut......Taking a Break

Hi Folks!

Just wanted to let you know that I will be taking this week off from posting here.

I'll be spending this time researching and writing a few posts for my other two blogs.

Also, lately I've been inspired to add some highlights to this blog, therefore, I will be using this week to figure out how I want to present them.

But before I leave, I thought I'd SHOCK you with a photo from my past.

Ready?......





GASP!

This was my very first professional acting headshot that was taken back in the 70's.

Could you just DIE?

Now tell me the honest truth...don't your eyes immediately go to my HAIR, SIDEBURNS, and EYEBROWS?

Mine do.

But at least they distract me from noticing that thick WRINKLED shirt collar.

WTF?

I think this photo makes me look like a Greg Brady want-to-be.

And it's no wonder that every time I walked into an audition and handed this headshot to a director, he would immediately say....

"I'm sorry, but we'll keep you in mind the next time we decide to do a musical version of The Brady Bunch.....

...NEXT!"


Have a great week everyone!

And I'll see ya next Monday.

Love,
Greg Brady

  2. oh boy, I AM FIRST AGAIN!

    well, I get over my little temper tantrum and then YOU leave for a break....you know, maybe it would be less disruptive if I just did it this way in a very logical and predictable way....hmmmm, well, it's a good idea so remind me the next time *it* happens...sigh...

    now about this photo, my GAWD, you are practically a dressed ape! how in the world was that OK, don't you wonder, as I remember lots of guys with the hair/sidies/brow thing going on???

    ...but on you ronnie, everything looks sexy so I will be looking at this as I drift off to sleep...I have been wanting to have some dreams about my past lives in the caves and who I was living with :)

    no, you are always a cutie, sweetie!

    I'm telling you, you could have been naked with a huge neon bow on your junk and I wouldn't have noticed anything but those EYEBROWS! Holy CRAP!!!

  12. Hellooooo Linda!!!!

    I'm SOOOOOO happy you decided not to leave and to post again!!! I LOVE what you offer to your readers. You're a very special lady, my friend...who has much to give to this world.

    Now about this photo, my GAWD is right!! And you couldn't have said it any better...an ape! I look like a furball caveman. I never knew my hair was curly until I moved to NYC and had a stylist tell me to let my hair grow longer. A few months later.....POOF....I had a fuzzy hair helmet!

    HAHAHAAHHAHAHAHA!

    Thanks for stopping by today, Linda!

    Hope you had sweet dreams!

    Have a great week. And I'll see ya next Monday!

  13. Bonjour Barbara!

    GROOVY!

    That's the perfect expression...

    GROOVY!!!!!

    This photo was probably taken about 1976. I had already been living in NYC and while I was back in Florida for a summer break, a friend of mine had a photographer friend who took a series of headshot photos for me. Can you believe that I was wearing a SWEATER in this outdoor shot in the Florida HEAT????

    OMG!

    Thanks my friend...I'm really looking forward to this break. Like I shared, I want to add some cool highlights to this blog, so I want to focus on planning it out, plus, give my other blogs some attention.

    Thanks for dropping by, Barb!

    Have a wonderful week!

    See ya on Monday!

    Hugs to you too!!

  15. Oh, Debi...you said it, girl!

    It's funny how when we're actually in a particular era of stlye, we think we're HOT! HOT! HOT!

    And then looking back, it's like...OMG...NOT!

    hahahahahaha!

    But that's the fun thing about style, I guess.

    Thanks for stopping by, Deb!

    My father also had these types of brows. All the men in our family seemed to have them.

  23. NOW...you KNOW what's going to happen, don't you...now that THAT PIC is live on the internet...
    Your agent will call because there's a part that calls for a retro vintage 70's hottie.
    And you're JUST what they've had in mind!
    Go get 'em, tiger!

  24. Hi Deb!

    OMG...that's tooooo funny!!

    And I bet you're right, too!!

    Oh shit...now I have to try and remember where the hell I put my platform shoes, NIK NIK shirts, and my gold medallion!!!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Listen, if he contacts me I'll let you know. I hear they're doing a remake of The Mod Squad!

    tee, hee!

  25. Wow, those eyebrows are something else, so thick! Have a great time taking time off. Isn't it funny how we have to 'take time off' from certain things to make time to do other things?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi Christa!

    My eyebrows are very much like Groucho Marx!

    Which is funny, because he and I shared the same birthday!

    HA!

    Yes...you're so right! Sometimes we DO need to take time off to make the time to do other things. I usually take a break from posting here about every 3-4 months. My other two blogs need some attention right now, so the timing was perfect.

    I've also got some ideas I want to try with this blog.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Hope you're having a great week!

  27. I'm having Wonnie Witdwawals...
    Boo hoo.
    I think I will head to Borders after work-a little retail therapy will have to do for now.
    (It's the second best therapy, right after Ronnie!)
    They are bribing me to spend money in there again with coupons. Me thinks me fell for it this time.
    "all books buy one get one 50% off"? I've had my eye on a few things under ten bucks LOL.

  28. Hi Debi!

    oooo....Borders!!! Hey, it just so happens that yesterday I stopped in one for a cup of java and some book browsing. I immediately noticed the SALE tables when I first walked in - lots of very cool stuff and not just books either. I love digging through those sale boxes!!!!

    Hope you're having a great week, my friend!

    Thanks for stopping by to say HI!

    Give a hug to Mama for me!

  40. Hiya Leesa!

    GROOVY!!!!!

    HA!

    You said it, last week FLEW by so fast. I got a lot accomplished, but I also was able to kick back and watch quite a few movies I had been wanting to see. I'm currently catching up on the DVD episodes of "Six Feet Under" - I LOVED that show!!!

    Glad to hear you caught up on your sleep. I know that "jetlag" can be very hard (especially when returning from a trip).

    Thanks for stopping by, dear friend!
