"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

SBE Makes You Interview with 8 Different People
That's right, Eight. Can you believe that? For a restaurant gig? Well, as it turns out, I am actually very thankful for this, as I met an incredibly talented and hard working load of people at Katsuya. And even though I only worked there for about four months (thanks slagging economy!) some of the friendships have still not died.
First off, a shout out to Dan Lawson! He is all over the place in a great way, and when you first meet him, you'll be amazed at how much he reminds you of a young Jim Carrey. Great guy. And just keep your fingers crossed for him, cause he's got some projects that will hopefully pan out so he won't have to be waiting tables anymore. He's kind of a big deal in voice-over land and he kindly gave me a whole three weeks of voice over instruction in only an hour and a half. Seriously, Great guy.
Check out his animation demo, where he does ALL the voices. ALL of them. Click on the demos in the blue box on the right hand side.
Second off, Jlynn Johnson. You know when you meet a really cute blond girl who has the most amazing skin ever? And then she smiles and you're like, whoa, she's gorgeous! And then she talks to you, and is nice? That really never happens in LA. Blond girls here are usually...aloof. Indifferent. Rude. Jlynn could quite possibly be the sweetest person I know. I mean, seriously. And at 5'1, you really want to just put her in your pocket and show your mom your new best friend. She also makes big hats look fierce.
And look how awesome she is in this short's trailer!
Good things are happening to good people, so everything is still right in this world.
