New Pictures!!!!

A new photographic team, Brent Isaac and Kimberly Rullo had me on a shoot last week for a project they are putting together, can't remember the charity , but it seemed like a good idea, and who am I to turn down good photographers??? And then today, I took a call from Erin at UGLY NY about a casting for a company that wants something "circusy" .... considering I spent years of my life eating glass and traveling with circus shows like Bindlestiffs, Circus Apocalypse and my most painful and personal favorite , Chicken John's (a one time mayoral candidate in San Francisco) Circus Ridiculous, I thought , well wouldn't that be nice? Of course, the go see is in NYC on wednesday and to get there and not call off at my day job I would need to take a bus overnight from Pittsburgh, spend a hundred bucks to get there and back, and I have done it before and I will do it again before the gig is up, but if I can at all avoid the horrors of the Greyhound bus I will, every time. I mean if it were thursday, I would amtrak it, I love the train. Especially the part around the Horshoe Curve, remind me to tell you about growing up in Altoona , PA and how proud we all were of the Horshoe Curve, it was awful and terrible and I have never been back, but the Curve made it much more bearable.

So I digress, Kim and Brent did these great shots of me and I sent them on in hopes of getting the gig without actually bussing up to audition

I sent her this one as well, I know you really aren't supposed to send pictures of other better looking people in pictures with you , but somehow I don't think he and I will be competing for gigs , and if we do, well he has 5 kids and I wouldn't mind. This is Joe , of whom I have spoken earlier. I have a song for him, I met him at Caliente , in Tampa , Fl, while singing for Foxy Moxy's Cabaret Risque, he is a personal trainer there and they are lucky to have him, he also was a missionary in Bosnia for 15 years during the war. I really enjoyed his company, we took one look at him and of course we had to put him in the show. He was our illustrated strong man.

Ok , one more picture for now, it's not so new, but I like it, it's me dancin' arahnd in a sari n'at. Photo by Tim Fabian.
