I know I don’t blog “enough” in here: generally I blog at my MySpace blog, but I figured as This 2010 February has been one of the best months ever, I should make a mention…
On the one hand, I booked some background work on a European commercial which shot on a Saturday and a Sunday, paying twice SAG scale, and for which we also got four plus hours overtime…
A payroll company began practicing the criminal act of conversion (taking money owed to a worker and giving it to a third party without benefit of law, under colour of authority, et al, and claiming it would continue to steal money from me to the tune of over thirty three hundred dollars), and did not pay me for a wardrobe fitting. After receiving from me an explanatory letter (in which I also politely directed them to provide the court order requring them to do so, absent which they become criminally lible, not those demanding money from them that is owed to me). As no such court order exists, the payroll company realized they were in violation of law, and for the actual acting day worked I received that day’s payment, and the false amount was no longer on the check’s “pay stub.” I have chosen to “eat” the about-thirty bucks for the wardrobe fitting, in thanks that the payroll company at least ceased stealing from me and began complying with positive law.
My national 2009 Pedigree Super Bowl spot was voted the third best Super Bowl commercial of the decade…
Along with the upcoming payments for the European commercial and the 2010 airing of the Crazy Pets spot usage during the CBS show, I will be able to acquire new glasses with an updated prescription, new headshots, both with which to endevour acquiring a TV/Theatrical agent…

I apologize for being so lax in entering mirror-blog entries here, as I continue to blog primarily at MySpace.
I actually composed (then forgot to submit) information regarding my online radio appearance (since then, plural) on Paranormal Insight at Para-X Radio, which was followed by a second appearance, on Stirring the Cauldron hosted by ghost-book author Marla Brooks.
The links to the reports are on my Paranormal Experiences index page.
I have to confess that while originally my plan was to mirror here my MySpace blogs, I’ve been extremely lax doing so (hence, you really should keep up at my MySpace blog/s, and/or subscribe thereto).
Mostly due to airings and such, I have made updates to my various on-set report pages, including but not limited to the Pedigree Super Bowl spot progress and airing/s,
the repeat of my fourth My Name is Earl gig episode, the CSI episode, the Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland feature, the episode of The Office, and the long slow wait and positing whether the final episodes of Eli Stone even air, meaning my episode Tailspin may only be viewable if the second season is released on DVD.
On MySpace I came across a Chayanne fan who ironically wasn’t previously aware I had worked on his music video Yo Teamo: I ended up updating that report as the YouTube video of the spot had been removed and I had to re-find it to embed it on the report page.
The wee hours notwithstanding, I find myself awake due to a deranged woman, screaming for about 45 minutes at the top of her lungs obscenities at her husband and “friends” pretty much directly beneath the window, so I figured I should make a few mentions:
The McDonalds regional wild spot commercial shoot was Friday evening, my full report on the shoot is up here.
At some point in the near future, my Strictly Background director Jason Connell will be converting my two Jimmy Kimmel Live Under-5 gigs, which I have on DVD, into a format (QuickTime and/or Windows Media Player), that I can save here on my site for immediate playback.
For the moment, on my page, I placed a link to the Accountants Gone Crazy video I found on YouTube, in which I can be seen playfully chasing a co-worker, chugging ketchup, and firing staplers into the air like six-shooters.
I’ve been tinkering a bit on the site.
One by one I am editing and “transferring over” my older web pages (the on-set reports, as I call them), but as only a few “haphazard ones” have been done, I will hold off uploading them until I have a few good relevant (e.g., recent) ones.
It’s not a super-easy task: while the text is there, the page formatting between my old site pages and the current geoffgould.net site is a bit different, mostly simpler (but pulling bit by bit the text from the “complicated pages” to align with the new format I’ve designed is just that: bit by bit).
I have been working at learning CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), which would assist me in pre-formatting the pages of similar appearance: I’d just add the text in the proper place.
So far it seems slightly more complicated than HTML, but while CSS seems learnable (e.g., for me to learn it), I’m not sure if it really is user-friendly. Of the examples/tutorials I’ve seen, many/most seem to operate under the presumption one already knows it. I’ve no spare cash with which to acquire a CSS editor, though it’s tempting. If I get several good SAG gigs the rest of this month and throughout April, I might risk getting one.
Well folks, thanks to my cousin Malcolm, geoffgould.net exists. Over the past several days I have begun putting together a relatively simple site, though one friend suggests a more flash-intensive look. As I am in the minority (e.g., still using dial-up), I am more open to the idea of a gateway page, at which one can select the easy html page/s, and one more flash’y.
So for now it’s an ongoing Work In Progress.
While I will continue blogging at MySpace, I will have applicable mirror entries here.
