One Year In Wala Wala

Posted by Ruok On December - 30 - 2008

When I first took these photos with my iPhone, I never had the intention of making a montage of a year’s worth of these photos.

The idea only kinda popped into my head as I realised I liked taking these pictures, even though I wished I had flash and/or zoom at times.

You know that ancient sitcom Cheers? This is what Wala is like for me; its a place where almost all the staff knows my name, if not, my face.

Its a place where I can relax, chill out and rock my heart out.

Its not been such a great year for me, but I’m glad I had a place to go when the going got tough.

Bah Humbug

But I like to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas anyway.

And, Happy Birthday Lord!

Cracking The Lens

Posted by Ruok On December - 25 - 2008

So it came to pass on the eve of the eve of Christmas morn, I was asked at the end of the audition to take off my shirt.

And yea, they wanted the back view too.

I can almost hear the camera lens cracking; I just hope they don’t sue me for the damage.

To have an inkling on how bad it can be, check out this :

Numero Uno Again

Posted by Ruok On December - 23 - 2008

2 months ago, I killed off the old blog addy, which resulted in me being knocked off the perch from google.

Yesterday, I did a search on my name again, and lo and behold! I’m numero uno again.

2 months of anonymity was all I got, despite not even blogging regularly. o.O

Oh which reminds me, its been two months since I’ve said I wanted to revamp the site but didn’t.

Time to get cracking, since the site’s so visible now. >.<

Wetting The Whistle

Posted by Ruok On December - 3 - 2008

Yesterday I did my shoot for the Total Defense project.

This was one of the rare few projects that landed on my lap without an audition. I’ve worked with the director Naresh on the Portable Film Project earlier this year and I was under the impression that he had specifically asked for me again.

He might have, but while on the set yesterday, I found out that their mentor was actually Sam, a director I worked with earlier this year for Moonface. Seems like he recommended me too.

It’s nice to know I’m getting referrals in what has been a very slow year. It assures me, in no small way, that at least I’m good enough to be recommended. ^.^

The project was a simple shoot; the highlight being it the first shoot where I got offered alcohol, courtesy of the director. Smirnoff with green tea posed as my stage prop for beverage and the crew insisted I was already drunk halfway through the scene.

But of course I wasn’t. And of course I had to finish the drink, because we all know its bad manners not to finish a drink when offered.

I had to remind the producer I was the way I am even sans alcohol. After all, I did ask her if the “Heroine” spewed over her T-shirt was the follow up series to “Heroes” even way before I started drinking.

Which really got her flabbergasted then because she thought it was a really lame thing to say. You should have been there, Jill. Both of us would have driven her nuts.

In fact, they were supposed to rope Jill in as my wife again, but she couldn’t make it. I’m sure I would have spoken more than two sentences to Jill if she had took the role. 😉

Booze and payment right on the spot.

It doesn’t get better than this. :)
