Movie Star!!!

OK, I'm made my first move towards obtaining a gold Star engraved on Peachtree Street. Have you seen The Gospel yet? Don't feel bad, neither have I. But I'm getting a bunch of messages from folks who saw me in it. I'm in two church scenes! I'm wearing a Navy Blue Polo Shirt, dude w/ the locs I didn't think anyone would see me. But apparently, the camera stopped & focused on me while I was "acting" out my grand performance of pretending to enjoy the director's antics, clapping to the CD, and pretending I wasn't exhausted from sitting in a church at 1 AM for a 10 min scene that we repeated about 50 times.

As I blogged about earlier, a couple of times, I have dabbled with getting my movie hustle on. And I had a great opportunity to appear in more scenes and get speaking roles, but I decided the opportunit just wasn't worth it. So instead, I'm going to enjoy my 15 seconds of fame! I wonder if my name appeared in the credits. Doubt it. But anyways, go check out the movie. I'm in the church scene in the beginning when little Boris Kodjoe was singing, and near the end when big ##### enters the church. (I don't want to ruin the movie).

I'll be on the Walk of Fame on Peachtree Street signing autographs at noon tomorrow, right after the Star dedication ceremony.

Old School Hoops

We just won our first game in the basketball church league! Whoo-hooo! We nearly doubled the opponents score. That's a good sign. Playoffs, here we come. But *ouch* my body is just not springing like it used to. Can't jump like I used to. *Ugh* I just read an article in my Men's Health magazine, and it said that shoes should be replaced after 200 miles. I think I've put about 300 on mine. My heels are killing me!

I bought my kicks to play ball last year, but it didn't happen. So I figure I'll just wear them this year. But they make me feel like I'm jumping on a pogo stick with no spring! New shoes, a must, gotta get. So here I am walking into work today in my dressy shoes, with sore heels. This means I'm more comfortable walking on my toes. Dilemma: Walk on my toes & look like some fruit cake, or suffer in pain walking like a man. Well, this is no dilemma, not question. I'm walking around all day, gingely as possile, knowing my insticts is to walk on my toes to spare me the pain.

Broken Glass

So I headed off to the public library for a meeting, pull into a nice lil spot, and everything seems all good. When I return, I seen shattered glass everywhere at my driver's door. "AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!" (That's a yell, not a scream) Heart starts beating at 300 beats per minute. I walk slowly up to my car... and it's not my window. "Whoa". The car next to mine is gone. There was no car there, & no glass when I pulled into the spot.

So today, I rolling down the street & see a auto store with an eye-catching sign on the store front: "HOT CARS WANTED". I wonder if the car from the library is over there.

I think I may have said before that my wife thinks blogging, bloggers and anything having to do with this stuff is wierd. So, now I'm gonna really spook her out when we go to see "The Gospel" and I tell her that JezChill, one of my blogging cohorts is in an opening scene. I can just see the look she's gonna give me.

First of all I love your blog!

Congrats on your Movie appearance. I will watch for you.

Hope your heels feel better.

Last. Glad it wasn't your car.

Congratulations on your movie career! If I ever see that movie I'll jump up and down and say I know that dude when the church scene appears. lol!

Doggonit! Now I've got to go and watch it AGAIN. I wish you would have put it out there BEFORE it hit the screens. I know you movie star people are privy to "soft" openings and whatnot, but I'm a movie-head and have a thing for seeing flicks when they first arrive. Don't want others to ruin it for me I guess. Anyway, tight work on your few seconds of fame. You gone make me up and move so I can have my moment of movie glory. Most people are surprised that I've not ventured to try acting seeing that they say I've got "the look." I-on know 'bout that, but maybe I'll soon find out. I really would love to be in movies for the love of it. All those semesters of drama and now drama ministry going to waste. Humph.

PS - The movie had a good story line, but me and the hubby beg to differ about "David's" fame had he stayed ... Also, could they have gotten a more believable voice to do his numbers? I'm shutting up.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention - glad you opted to walk like a "big boy." There's this cat in the gym, decent looking brotha, sporting about seven plus years of gorgeous locs, who I catch, from time to time, floating on his darn tip-toes. I hold my stomach as to not bust out laughing at him. Funny thing is I catch him looking at me, so I'm not sure what's up with the "Tinker Bell" swagger?

@Brutha Buck: Your wife is right, we are all very weird. Note my motto to the right about Normal people.

@Edwige: Don't get kicked out the theater because of me!

@Proactiff: There were several movies taped in Atlanta this past year. Much less competition here than Hollywood. Maybe they should call it Ghottowood here (Since Bollywood is already taken).

@Everyone: Thanks!

Wuuut! I can say that I've blogged with a Movie Star! *popping collar*

I'm supposed to be going to see that with my church this Saturday so I'll definitely be scanning the screen for you :)

I was already excited about seeing this movie! NOW I got MORE reason to go see it sooner than I had planned!!!

*applauding*@your 15 mins of fame...

Sometimes that's all one needs to get to the big times!

Okay I saw you in three scenes. 2 were on the same day, the 3rd was another. Did they scan you in? Because you had the same shirt on.

Am I tripping?

They made that movie quick, because didn't you just go down there this summer?

@C2A: A couple of scenes were taped on the same day.
