So I’m not in rehearsal or prepping for a rehearsal, performing or crashing after a show for the first time in YEARS!!! How does it feel? Weird. Terrible. Boring. and just a tad peaceful. Things are happening and not-happening. I did Charmed Vessels for the holidays and it was awesome, so I did my Etsy site, which sucks. I would never buy something like this online…without feeling it and holding it. I was gonna take it down but i think having that stuff online helps. Right? I will get off my ass and take some samples to local stores and see if that helps…it’s not that I don’t believe in the spells I guess I just don’t believe in the average consumer to get it.. and that sux. Achilles is dead in the water. UGH. That sux too. Too much, WAY too much to go into now but suffice to say it isn’t happening any time soon. That bummed me out more than I can ever explain. My car died. RIP Lady Royale! Palm Spring bailed on History of Drag. I know, batting 1,000 right? BUT in a sliver of cool the new artistic director might be interested in next year. It’s not like I’ll be too old for the role :))) I have to start over. We shall see.
Paris is the best part of 2018! Booked flights, Paris airbnb! Excited. Costume is no where near done. Pieces are arriving. I might have over estimated my sewing talent! It should be fun, certain friends not getting along not withstanding…we shall see (AGAIN) I am sure fun will be had.
The title is weird I should explain that. Not being in a show right now and not really writing anything specific is weird for me. OK OK I just finished the very LONG Cash Masters and am trying like fuck to finish one of these two Elven short stories like a nerd AND I am shooting some cozplay idea thingy… BUT, with the new job at Hunter and Charlies and working so many hours, for the first time in forever, I feel like a mortal/normal person who goes to work, eats, gets laid, and finds little time to write and has to be aware of funds all the time. I’ve even started watching a lot of Netflicks. Who am I? ha ha ha oh my…. Except as the pic shows I am still holding on to my Divine! Massaging Billy was fun and part of my calling. It reminds me to be of service and practice kindness. There’s this whole new 7 chakras every day thing I’m doing but wont explain here. It was nice. I am trying to find solace in not going 24-7. It’s hard for an hyper dude like me. Breathe Dave Breathe! Be still. WHo am I kidding??!?!? 🙂 OH and I might do a Patreon account.. we shall SEEEEEE!!!
I know. I know. I missed February! Among other things my site went down to a new hosting server so that’s me excuse and I’m sticking to it! Also I am not going to put here all the work I’ve been doing with Brigid, but suffice to say she’s been AWSOME to work with. Blessings to you Great One! David 2.0 is a lot of fun. Ok back to work: Rewriting freaking History again to make it part 1 and 2! I think it’s pretty great. A lot of math had to be figured out BUT the idea is I can tour an under 60 minute show without loosing my soul! We will be having a reading soon-ish. Cash Masters aka Humiliation House is kind of freaking great! It’s so funny. I have, at this point, written 5 of the 8 and fully outlines all so thats LOT of writing. I have NO idea if we’re going to actually shoot it but here’s to art for art’s sake I guess! Who knew writing online bdsm humor would be so fun! I’m trying to stay on top of the whole submitting plays thing. AND working on monologue book but man there’s only so much time in a day and I need to prioritize and ya know, have fun once in a while?!?! Ha ha I am blessed and grateful and working on it all!!!!!!
Wow Maui Fringe was AWESOME! I cannot actually express in words how great the whole trip was! 2017 was so hard and the turn around to 218, being sick as a dog and then rehearsing (sorry Rebecca for sweating all over you) and then going to Maui was tough. I am counting Imbolc as my real New Years. Hence reorganizing my life. I have plans! It was so great being an actor again ( I say this a lot). Finding ways to do more! Shanna and I are planning on having a semi-private fight class. YAY! Charming Vessels to where to pitch The Third! I am in motion. Really setting out my monologue book! Also: I want to re-commit to fiction 1,000 words a week. (Ok I’ll probably start with porn do sue me) Book of Prayers or new adventures or romance novel thingy that I cannot believe I am thinking about??? Let me just encapsulate all of this: I met Pele. I am changed. Exhilarated and excited about what i can create.
Aren’t these banners for The Sex Life of Achilles AMAZING? Rebecca Graul really out did herself. The show is lovely. I am thrilled. It’s visually stunning and the new Thetis arc is clear and, can I use lovely again? It’s lovely! I think Maui Fringe is going to be a blast. We’re all paid for and almost ready for our preview on Jan 9th! We’re even joking about where to take it next. Speaking of which i think I’m not doing Brighton. I think that 2k could be better served doing the show in USA and getting better reviews or the like. Started working on Faery Night again for fun. I changed it to them being older. I grow so sick of all romance novels being about ripped 22 year olds or coming of age/out teens. Continue reading
My Aunt Stella died. She was an amazing woman. I will miss her very much. It’s hard, when someone you love so much, someone you thought would always be there for you, the way she always had been, is no longer going to be here, to not be selfish. Me me me. I am sad. I am wrecked. I can’t stop crying. What she meant to me. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing. I guess, if someone helped make you who you are, maybe it should be impossible to speak about them without being self-referential.
Aunt Stella taught me kindness. She was kind to me when others weren’t. She never judged when it would have been easy to condemn. If life became unkind Stella would offer concern. A trait I have tried to copy, sometimes, well sometimes… Continue reading
