A Shout Out

Hello Readers,

We have been playing around with page layouts here. Raul wants something manly, but Filipe wants something sparkly. What to do! For now we're settling on purple stars and will mull it over while mixing some cocktails and trading massages.

In the meantime, I stumbled across this delightful blog whose title I am desperately jealous of: Fat, Ugly or Slutty. (Why didn't I think of that? This blog could be called Prudish, Bitter or Just a Bitch.) It is a brilliant response to sexism in gaming. Not that Gabby plays games. Just gin... 

But I am being told that's what I drink, not what I play.

Anywho.

For more delightfully frightening news on the pervasiveness of sexism and misogyny in the online world, break out your reading glasses and slip this on for size: In Virtual Play, Sex Harassment Is All Too Real.

Thanks for reading and we hope to nail down a template some time in the near future. (Or maybe never making up our minds will be the new theme...?)

Remember to hug an unemployed actor... and to keep your pants on. Or try to. Depending on the circumstances, of course.

xo

[ CATHY ]
Late 20s to Early 30s, Gorgeous and sexy. No accents, please. Caucasian, Eurasian, Latina or Ethnically ambiguous. Mia's charismatic roommate and childhood best friend. Cathy is a devout Catholic who practices what she preaches. She is also completely repressed and in the closet. She can be a bit quirky and loves to arm wrestle. She's the perfect complement to Mia.

[ BILL ]
40s, George Clooney type. Caucasian. Carla's boss and owns Life Bio Tech. His vice is cigarettes and his overly active sex life—with his wife. When he has a cancer scare, his wife insists he quit smoking.

[ ASHA ]
Mid-late 20s, Classic beauty, partial nudity. Open ethnicity. Bill's beautiful trophy wife and co-worker at Life Bio Tech. She is totally devoted to Bill. She is straight-laced and proper, except for her outrageous sex life.

STORY LINE: When lazy and gluttonous Scott loses his job, he spirals into despair, finding consolation in pizza, beer and the killer donuts from the bakery next door. When his home becomes a temple of apathy and dirty dishes, his beautiful and successful sister Mia hires a sex goddess and life coach from hell to turn his pathetic life around. But is the allure of everything he could ever want in a woman enough to get him off the couch?

Ok, this might be a cute premise... except I can't think about it too clearly without trying to imagine my brother... and now my brain has melted and I just died of extreme grossness overload.

You Had Me At Lesbian Fetish Porn Stars.

NV, 'THE FETISH SET'

Mood Tie Productions is casting "The Fetish Set," a provocative, feature-length film about four fetish/porn stars who are stalked by a serial killer. As the women gather at a yearly fetish convention in Vegas, and one bad decision leads to another, the girls find themselves drawn deeper into a darkness well beyond their rational limits. Producers state: "The film is racy and pushes the limits of a Rated-R film." Shane XXXXX, dir. Shooting early November in Las Vegas, Nevada and possibly South Texas.

Seeking—Reyna: female, 25-35, a strong, butch, Latina who still has feelings for Jo, her former lover, more the porn opportunist than porn star, the bull in the china shop, the bad influence, must be extremely secure in doing scenes with nudity (topless & implied full nudity), will be seen nude as she washes off the blood of a rapist she has just killed with her ex bisexual lover Jo, will also be seen partially nude for one scene tied up in the backseat of a car, and will be seen in underwear for a scene where a friend draws on her body; Angel: female, 20-25, the adorable blonde and Reyna's new found love, her innocent full eyes and pursed lips are reminiscent of a Disney sketch, awkward yet irresistible, a fresh new face to the industry, implied topless scenes but no nudity; Jo: female, 25-30, an adrenaline junkie who finds that elusive fix as a porn star, she's fit, smart, the alpha female, but underneath that armor of confidence dwells a vulnerability to the demons of her past, must be comfortable with nudity, for one topless nude scene as she bathes with her ex bisexual lover, and for simulated and implied sex scenes with her clients (topless only and in silhouette); Jack: male, 40-60, a serial rapist-murderer, trailer trash with delusions of grandeur, add a little 'bling', a love for opera, and the Marquis De Sade and in his mind he becomes simply irresistible, implied nudity, and possible brief rear nudity when he drops his pants and changes into a bathrobe in the desert, there is also a scene where he is dancing in the nude, which will be filmed in silhouette with special underwear.

Note: This film contains strong sexual and violent themes.

Makes Total Sense.

model / actress wanted (NYC)

Date: 2012-07-02, 11:37PM EDT

Reply to: XXXXX.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Sensual model/actress wanted for behind-the-scene video production. This is an academic industrial project that does involve Nudity so please be advised.

The project's pay scale is $3000 with a 3-day shooting schedule. Ideal candidate will have a background in glamour, bikini, figure or fitness modeling in conjunction with some acting abilities. (i.e. reading from a script, taking direction and executing precise blocking).

To apply for this project you must be a female age 18 to 36 and in great physical shape. This is a contract project with many installments in the series.

Also include your acting and modeling resume if you have one. Do not leave out any of the requested information. Only serious inquiries will receive a reply.

MUST SEND

Email me with your photos, phone no & facebook or talent link
*Location: NYC
*it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
*Compensation: TBD

I like how this "sensual model/actress" "in great physical shape" "with some acting ability" is needed for "behind-the-scene" work, which - for some reason - involves Nudity (with a capital N). I have a feeling the "precise blocking" she will be executing will be very "hands-on."

Fun! Silly! SEXY!

It's a birthday make-over! NR, NP started sending out fun and silly (just like the ladies this casting notice is looking for!) ads 10 years ago. Can you believe it? We can't (we don't think we look a day over 6 years old). But we thought we deserved a little sprucing up, anyway. We hope you enjoy the new layout.

OMG, You Guys! This Coulda Been My Big Break.

I got this email a couple weeks ago:

From: notices@castingnetworks.com
Sent: Friday, March 16, 2012 12:15am
To: [That Hot Bitch Gabby]
Subject: CONGRATS: AUDITION INFO BASED ON YOUR RESUME/HEADSHOT FROM CASTING NETWORKS,INC

Congrats,you have been selected for TWO great opportunities.

1) You have been selected to audition for the comedic project entitled QUICKDRAW as you submitted your resume/headshot on Casting Networks,Inc. Quickdraw is a family comedy/drama about foster homes and the life story of several adults that reflect on their youth in foster homes. The audition will take place Saturday April 7th,2012 at Ripley Grier studios. You will be provided with a monologue to read. The time for your audition will be emailed to you once you respond to this message....

So, at first I was all like, "Great!" And then...

2) You are ALSO invited to attend a large and extremely popular networking event that the Producer will be hosting at a restaurant in Midtown,NYC in which local media will be in attendance. At this event will be two TMZ photographers as well as entertainment reporters from the news channel New York 1 and 3 public relations reps from production companies. There will also be 2 casting directors that are currently ca! sting for General Hospital in L.A. All of these guests will be available to meet and ready to answer any of your questions,take your resumes/headshots,etc. This is a great opportunity to meet these individuals just please be dressed in nice, professional, attire/clothing. There will also be music provided by several dj's and free drinks the first hour. This will be a great way to go out and network with successful film/tv individuals while still enjoying the night as well with many actors and actresses. (Because there is NO better way to meet people for professional purposes than in a loud bar after a cocktail or two - am I right?) This event will be going from 9pm-2am on Saturday,March 31st. We already have many actors and actresses on the guest list so if you will be attending this networking event please confirm by emailing XXXXX at XXXXX.com. This event will be at a bar/restaurant on 51st and 10th ave. You may bring guests. Complete information will be provided once you confirm that you will be attending. Once you do,you will be placed on a guest list. Once again, email me (XXXXX) at XXXXX.com to confirm. From- XXXXX (Assistant director)

And then I was all like, "Ugh. *eyeroll* No." So, this was my reply:

I'm happy to attend the audition on April 7. I have a matinee performance that day at 3, so I can come before 2 (I have a 2 o'clock call time in midtown), or after 5.

As for the "events," I find this all rather unorthodox. It's also a holiday weekend. So I won't be attending that. But like I said, I am happy to audition if this is for a legitimate project.

Thank you.

Guess what? I never heard back. Shocking.

It's been too long! Gabby's been busy working as an actor. Can you believe it? Working. As an actor.

I know I promised I'd write more regularly. Oopsie! Maybe I should go into politics, instead?

On the upside - I was very happy to open an email from a bad-speller stranger today, addressing me as a "friend." She sure is one "hot" "friend" (who cares if she can't spell?)! How lucky am I?

The Bunny Hop

You know how it goes... one hope forward, two hops back (or something - no need to quibble over specifics). Gabby has been up to her eyeballs in work. Good work! She gets to keep her clothes on and act at the same time. It's been wonderful. But in the meantime she's been a little slow with the new ads. Please forgive.

Instead of something frighteningly awful, here's something frighteningly awesome! Help support live theater, people. You love it and it loves you.

Gabby has been so very busy cookie baking, toy making, and cocktail shaking! Once again, this bloggy woggy has been neglected. So sorry!

Kiss kiss,
