Because one strike isn't enough...

I'm planning a NY trip to film some more segments for Backstage Live, and I was hoping we might be able to go backstage at some Broadway shows.  Then I remembered that the Broadway stagehands are all on strike... There are a few shows still open,...

The Ice Cream Truck Project

Boaz ·
I have a dream.  No, it's not about children of different races getting along, (though that would be nice), it's about chocolate and vanilla getting along- ice cream, that is.  And rocky road and mint chocolate chip and cookie dough and any...

Nice....I just went and listened to bits & pieces of his latest Ripe ...not bad at all....and a songwriter to boot. I was impressed with the Bens and it is good to hear Ben Lee is still doing it. Good job, April.

BONES EXTRA: Emily Deschanel on what creeps her out

Boaz ·
We posted our 'behind the scenes' segment from Bones a few weeks ago, and a lot of footage was left on the cutting room floor.  But I liked this clip too much not to share it.  We talked to Emily for about twenty minutes, (and I'll admit I...

Make sure to watch One Life to Live on Monday and Tuesday, (November 5th & 6th), because I'll be on it! No, I won't be speaking or doing anything important- I'll be hiding in the background. Last month I spent a day on the set of the soap opera as an extra or "background actor," (that's the nice way of saying it). But if you pay attention and watch carefully then you should have no trouble finding me. We filmed a fun 'behind the sceens' segment for Backstage Live...

One Strike- You're Out!

I don't know who came up with this three strikes you're out business, but all it takes is one writer's strike to halt dozens of television shows.  Instead of huddling over a laptop in a cramped writer's room, TV writers across the country are...

Not only did I talk to Vanessa Carlton last night, but I also taught her to play kazoo.  I caught up with her before her show at the Crocodile Cafe and we chatted about her latest album, infusing your own vodka, and her dog Victor.  Victor...

Re: The Ice Cream Truck Project

I like ice cream on scotch,, I call it a scotch float,, take a pint of rocky road and pour a small bottle of scotch on top,, when you get to the bottom you don't care if you got a truck or not,,you're happy to have a way home..and you want to give calves a haircut and trim..

Wow! It's like "Where's Waldo?"! Actually, I didn't even need your captions to find you.... How exciting for you! I'm sure your on the verge of being signed as a soap star. Well, actually...you are WAY too upbeat for a soap star. I'm pretty sure that soap opera actors don't skip through the office.

i'm hoping that somewhere in the background we will see the image of you giving someone a 'high five'... it would be a shame for them to have the world champion on and not allow him to show his stuff!

I hope someone will Tivo (or otherwise record) this and share it so that we can watch you in action. Do you know if you can download episodes from somewhere?
Comment

Re: I'm a TV star! Well, sort of...

Very exciting...but I think you should carry a kazoo in your pocket (just in case) and like Bob said, a high-five should be included somewhere .

You're living one of my dreams Boaz. I've tried to get in on some of the rare productions that takes place here in St Louis but they have always expected you to have at least 16 hours out of a day to spare. I never have that kind of time. Plus there's probably not a big need for guy rooting through dumpster or guy laying in gutter i could do those.

Re: I'm a TV star! Well, sort of...

Oh, surely! I see PLENTY of TV with guys laying in the gutter and rooting through the dumpsters. You must be asking in the wrong places, Doug.

Ok, so my tivo has been notified of the Boaz appearances and directed to record said shows...BTW, I usually never was these shows but will make an exception for the cause! Last night, we were watching Pushing Daisies , a rather unusual new show with some humor and thought we saw Boaz walk past a window. Was that you, Boaz? Should we start looking for you everywhere?

Boaz IS a rather "Pushing Daisies" kind of person....

As far as I know, I'm not on any other television shows... Are there other Boazs out there? That's a scary thought.... And thanks for TIVOing me!

Good one Lori...maybe we can all go through our phone books and come up with a series of "the other ..." (same name but different person). Boaz, did you say THE OFFICE? and I was so looking forward to that one.

Interview the strikers... I knew nothing about this!! As a dedicated Sci Fi fan I would like to see some interviews that fit into that category (ignore me if you wish, see if I care, where did I put my voodoo doll of Boaz?)

sbevis, Ted gave you the exact link. You shouldn't have to search.

Re: One Strike- You're Out!

Let me restate. I initially tried to find the interview for SuBe because I remembered watching it. I couldn't find it, having forgot that it was on a different site. Then Ted posted the link, at which point I thanked him. That was wasn't made very clear in the original exchange. I thought you all could read my mind.

Re: One Strike- You're Out!

Strikes are a tough time for all involved. I've been on strike. It got me what I enjoy today, which is being able to work for 30 years and have a nice retirement. If we had never walked the picket line for 82 days in 1970, I would still be working until I would be 67 years old. "You can never regain what you lose in a strike!", I've heard, but you also can get stuff you never thought would be possible too!
