This will haunt me for awhile. It already does. Might as well share.
Plus some of you have asked- "What do you look like?" "What does the Cat look like?" Myself I'm not much of a photo man.
It wasn't until my acting years that I warmed to the camera.
Or it wasn't until my acting years that I learned to own it.
What do I mean?
One of the things you learn in life. Especially in Art and Acting.
Is you need to own it.
You need to own your time on stage, the moment, your own life.
We all grow up with things from our childhood that we might not like to remember,admit, or take responsibility for.
Anyway-own it! Own who you are -past and present. Big hair, big glasses, bling, whatever your choices. Stand by it and sell it.
You only get one shot in life.
I'm going thru a few childhood photos for a project at the moment. I have been trying to scan all the family photos for a digital library and family tree. Its a big project. My hope is to have it done for my family and friends in December. While I was going thru a few photos-its hard not to laugh at myself.
With that-I give unto you the different faces of Mike:
I always say I'm a cat man.
But I have always had a dog in my family.
Although this picture does concern me?
It's very "Of Mice & Men". It has a Lenny feel.
It looks very much like the happy kid that ate paste.
Cabin life in Northern California. Would you let your child play with the shark kid who had a big dog down the road?
Napoleon? Tether Ball?
Mike Mayonaise! Sadie Hawkins Day was tough.
The brothers. Myself, Chris, Sam, & Andy. Artist, Musician, Film Maker, Animator.We take bets on who will go bald first.
Have I changed at all?
