Fast Guitars and Women

I have a new love in my life... her name is Josephine.

She's not the first. Nor will she be the last... There were other's before... namely... Marty.
I got her off the rebound from an old friend:

Admittedly, that may have been too obscure. But for the 3 people out there in internet land that may have gotten it, the joke was worth it. Right Tin Grizzly?
I'm conflicted these days. Tho my feelings for Josephine are strong... the lingering scent of nostalga hangs heavy, like a suffocating blacket filled with Miller Lights and "Play Rick Springfield"s...
Marty and I may have had some fun in our day, but it's over and I can't look back. Sure, it's fun to let my mind drift to the old days of reckless car storage and overly zealous arena rock strums... but it can only last so long before the cold refreshing wash of reality sets in and it ends as it always does. Me, resentful and bitter, lashing out at the hollow shell of what she used to be, longing for the days of perfect tone and finish.
I know one day I'll come back to her. Longing for the comfort of that old pair of shoes you just can't throw away. After being through as much as you have been with that special some"thing", no matter how awful they may be:

You will eventually find your way back home to them. Because after all, they were there with you - thru everything.
Hang in there Marty... you'll always be my first. I just need to spin around the block with Josephine for a bit.

Hey Everyone,

Happy aaaaalmost Memorial Day Weekend!

Aloha to LOST

It's been 4 days since LOST has ended and I feel so alone in this world without it... so I'm reverting back to what I know - and that's whoring myself out for the next thing I'm promoting :)

No Day But Today

I've spent the last couple of months in rehearsal for a Regional Production of the Rock Opera RENT over in Haddonfield, NJ. I've met some great friends and have had the privilege to share the stage with an amazingly talented cast.

RENT defined Broadway in my mind... I saw it / heard it in the 90's and have been waiting for a chance to be a part of it since. And so here I am, a week away from opening, and looking for your support!

It's not your typical "musical"... combine a rock show with a gritty, inspiring, hopeful storyline that's set on Manhattan's lower East Side in the late 80's / early 90's. It follows the lives of 8 friends over the course of a year through love, loss, disease, individuality, hope... the music will blow you away and the story is both heart wrenching and hopeful. Seriously. If you're not moved you have ice in your heart and well, I can't help you there.

Our Cast

Brian Bortnick (formerly of Octane and now signed to BeePhonic music working with Chris Sligh of American Idol Fame) stars as our ROGER DAVIS. He's puuurttty good.

Ed Corsi (Founder of The Loop and member of The INTERNS) is our Mark Cohen. He also flirted with landing the role on Broadway so he's got it down pat.

The cast also features seasoned performers who have performed in National Tours, Commercials, Television Shows... our own Erika Schiff of the Melanie Rice Orchestra sung the National Anthem at Citizens Bank Park for the Phillies not too long ago... Why am I hyping everyone up?! Point is this cast is crazy talented and deserves to be seen!

I'll be playing several different roles through out the show... I make a mean drug dealer (you'll see... it's creepy).
