2018.

Just like any other year, 2018 had it’s ups and downs. I never do “resolutions” for the New Year, but I always try to define a couple of solid goals to keep me grounded, both of which I was able to accomplish in 2018.

I told myself I’d book 2 tv co-star roles that would air on TV. That’s not something we can really control, but somehow it came together. Some of you already knew this and I appreciate the supportive texts, calls and social media posts, I LOVE and APPRECIATE you all for that!

First up, There was the “snitch” named “Kenny” that worked in the sandwich shop on the Emmy Award Winning limited series, American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

I wasn’t invited to the Emmy’s, so I was there in spirit… AND in my living room! 🙂

Emmy AwardsNext came the quick appearance as the golf caddy in NCIS.

The second goal was to finally SHOOT this freaking idea that I’d been kicking around since about 2012. I didn’t finally write the script until 2016, and I kept re-writing it until 2018 I said enough was enough, I had to shoot the thing, some way, some how.

Web-Series Casting

And I did. And I paid everyone, no handouts, no crowd sourcing or Go-Fund-Me’s included. I’m glad I did because I realized I kinda like the producing/writing side of things. There were a few setbacks, of course, but as of December 15th, I’m proud to say it’s now in post-production and in the beginnning stages of editing. I’ll keep you guys in the loop as soon as I have updates.

Location scouting and test shooting is what’s going on below.

Oh yea, one other thing happened, in 2018. I think it’s kinda big too….  I got engaged! Haha, it’s still crazy to think or say, but it happened. My apologies if you had to find out through this blog, but I’ve learned to keep some personal things off of social media.

Malibu Proposal

I saw Michelle Obama speak during her “Becoming Michelle Obama” book tour, which was nothing short of amazing. She’s simply BRILLIANT!

I went to Coachella and made a few trips to Texas, but other than that, I didn’t travel much in 2018. Part of that was by design because I had to sacrifice March to November to work on the series. It was worth it though, the lessons I learned will be huge for me going forward.

Coachella Ferris Wheel

Speaking of Coachella, it was cool and all, but I’m not about to gas ya’ll… I’m much too old for it! I was tired, my feet hurt, I was hungry, it was hot, basically it’s a young person’s sport. It was cool to see Beyonce perform live though, I didn’t even know I was a part of the Bee-Hive until she did her thing on stage… But I know now!

I had a blast at a few other shows around LA….

In a nutshell, that was my 2018. I hope everyone had a great year, and if not, that’s ok too. Life’s all about, experiencing, learning and adjusting, so I’m calling a prosperous 2019 for us all. Happy New Year.

Ya’ll be safe and keep living!

Summer OOTD

Every Day People Brunch.

Summer OOTD

 

Friends

My favorite season is Fall but LA Summers are a close second. I hate to be hot but California doesn’t have the humidity that plagues my native Texas.

This past weekend I met up with friends to kick it at Chef Roble’s Everyday People Brunch. I most definitely prefer LA’s Day Parties as opposed to the Hollywood Nightlife bullshit.

It was a bit overcast so I went with chinos and a simple striped shirt and of course the ONLY cap that I’m wearing right now.  I looked at my past couple of posts and I noticed I always wear this one, and I have no plans of stoppping any time soon.  I hope everyone has a chill summer, be safe and ya’ll keep living!  – Bob

THE LOOKALIKE PREMIERE.

"Lookalike" Premiere Los Angeles

Man oh man, last night was fun!  I went to the L.A. Premiere for The Lookalike, the indie film I told you guys that I shot down in New Orleans a couple years ago.  Actually, before I get into last night, let me do some quick(and shameless) promoting!

As you all know, now a days Hollywood is into these HUGE tent pole movies with explosions, CGI, prequels, sequls and remakes.  Currently, Hollywood is not investing in smaller indie films such as The Lookalike, therefore there is no budgets for mass marketing.   Sooooooo *couch cough*…… That’s where you come in! *confetti drops from the ceiling*

If you’re in the L.A. area, there are screenings going all week starting Nov 7th!!!   If you can make it out, bring your ass and along with your friends, significant others AND side pieces!  We don’t discriminate!!!

Visit the 2 websites below for showtimes:

Vintage Cinemas – Los Feliz 3 – Los Feliz, Ca (Q&A with Cast/Crew following the Friday 7th, 7pm screening)

Laemmle – Music Hall 3 – Beverly Hills, Ca (Q&A with Cast/Crew following the Saturday 8th, 5pm screening)

Like The Lookalike Facebook Page so that you can keep up with the film and know where else it’ll be screening.

BIRTHDAY HOUSE PARTY.

I know I’m a couple months late, but I’m just now going through my phone’s footage from my b-day party a couple months ago.  It was a good break from work, auditions and the hustle and bustle of LA!  Enjoy and share!

2013 UNIQUE LA WINTER SHOW.

Thanks to LA Weekly, I found out last minute about this event called Unique LA, and even though I was sick, it sounded like fun. Over 300 of Los Angeles’ local designers and artists would be setting up booths at the California Market Center in Downtown LA to showcase their products. I was just starting Modern Metro Men, in fact the blog wasn’t even live yet, but I thought it would be fun to go and check out some Men’s Wear brands. I was blown away, the clothing/accessories were nice with excellent quality, the designers were super cool and ok with sharing how they started and where they envision their company going.

Be sure to visit the featured brand’s websites below, they have some really dope stuff and you will find some unique pieces that no one else will have!
