So remember how a few posts ago I was really distraught about the audition I had? Remember how I was bitter and thought it was a waste of my time? Ya I take it back. I still didn't really like the experience but that won't really matter since I got accepted to be a part of the 16 week competition. Well that's potentially 16 weeks anyway, every week they apparently vote out a competitor so there's no telling how long you'll be there. If you win you get a few hundred bucks and a meeting with the casting agents of all the major networks. The problem with the whole voting system is the fact that the audience is open to anyone. In this case that means whoever can bring the most friends gets the most votes. Unfortunately that puts me at a disadvantage since I don't have a very big pool of friends to draw from that could come. I sent out e-mails to all the people in the Groundlings classes and then everyone else I could think of. Still not as many as the other contestants probably can but it's the best I can do.
Other than that today was a bit empty. Applied to a few jobs, went down to the Sunset Grill to do an open mic. The Sunset Grill put in a new policy tonight where they require you to buy one item to perform. I hate this kind of policy since it forces you to add another criteria to choosing where you go for the night. Instead of deciding whether you like the room or not, now you have to check your wallet too. Just makes it that much harder.
Anyway, tonight I'm just recruiting people to come to the show tomorrow and I'm applying to some jobs my mom sent me over e-mail. Tomorrow is the first night and hopefully I'll back in time to check in and let you know how I did. Until then, Happy Trails!
