|Better Living thru Craigslist
Thursday, February 25, 2010
Sorry, folks, I have been busy & neglected you all -
I troll craigslistla - which is particularly good, I understand - in the show biz jobs and the gigs sections in L.A. - almost daily - and I have gotten a LOT of nice things/experiences/jobs from that free resource.
Yesterday I actually had a chance to work out with Jane Fonda herself in a W. Hollywood studio on her new exercise program for Boomers. She said she had had a hard time getting people to come - can you imagine? Guess that's why it was why it was on craigslist. We were taped (having signed releases, of course) and put through a very good workout - and then shared our feedback. There was also talk about getting copies of the program (our tapes? I don't know....) - and it could always lead to being in the final video.
It was great working with and seeing such an old pro work. She even squeezed in interviews with Entertainment Tonight and People Magazine while she was there...The whole atmosphere was that deceptively casual & upbeat professional tone you find on well run sets. In my experience, the higher up the ladder you go in show biz, the more calm and sane the stars seem to be.
And the day BEFORE, I went to downtown L.A. to meet Darryn Songbird of Songbird ocarinas - because he is looking for someone to represent his Songbird brand of ceramic ocarinas on YouTube,etc. playing the ocarina. I ended up being given his larger necklace ocarinas - with an octave an a half. This ceramic flute has a nice mellow sound through most of its range - (& a $20.00 value). So now, I am teaching myself to play the ocarina! I do like to learn new instruments.....
Trying to get free tix to a medieval opera downtown - they are sold out, but my connections are still working it!
Oh, and I really like the new aerate 08 bodifying creme mousse Redken sent me to try. Even without blowdrying, my hair came out very soft and without stray hairs all around....Very smooth.
Going in to see the folks at the Med3 trials on Saturday - (Another bennie from craigslist!) It is worth it to take a look.
