Actor/Composer/Politician?

Back in July I revamped my effort to write more and stay on top of this blog. In doing that, I've unconsciously begun to shift my focus from Actor/Composer to Political Commentator. Watch out, Anderson Cooper!

Now look - I think it's the job of every American to be as up-to-date as possible when it comes to Politics. Politics shouldn't be the understanding of a few, but of all. It's OUR country...right? So I don't feel bad about commenting about Politics, but I do feel as though it has shifted my focus from things more important to my daily life.

Also in July I finally got a MacBook, which was great. But I haven't yet gotten the web programming software to continually update my personal website.

So I've decided to momentarily kill two birds with one stone. Except I don't condone killing animals for sport, so let's just say I plan to stun two birds with one stone. I'm going to report on my artistic, professional endeavors on my blog here and leave the political commentating to the experts - namely my good friend, Tony, who once wrote for his high school newspaper.

This all came about when my good friend Tim - who's getting married!...gee, getting married, I wonder what that would be like. Won't ever know unless you vote no on prop 8....

No! no...no political talk. Er...

So, I'm working on a show where I play a Canadian, and I often joke around about the accent, which sounds an awfully lot like Sarah Palin's....

Oops. There I go again.

Well, look I'll do my best to turnaround, get on the money, and keep it gay.

Hopefully it'll be a change we can all believe in.

Don't forget your furry winter hat from "Lonelygirl 15: The Resistance". :-P

By the way, the first three links don't work... and the one about the "beautiful wedding story". Would you mind checking them again? Thanks!

Personally, I really enjoyed reading your point of view about politics. Focusing on several important things can be very difficult. I hope,you don't lose the focus on politics and keep making up your own opinion (which doesn't mean that your friend isn't right...You know what I mean?).

Well, good luck for your job anyway and have fun.:-)

Miriam,

Thanks for the notice about the links! They are corrected.

Do check out the wedding story one! I think it's very touching.

Miriam said...

You're welcome.
You're absolutely right; the story is very touching indeed, they are such a cute couple.

People teach their children to advocate tolerance, proscribe racism and then politicians defeat equal-marriages?
This contradiction doesn't make sense to me, there is something going totally wrong.

You crack me up - I'm glad your blog will still be active...and if you kept including social/political commentary along the way, I wouldn't complain. Whatever you end up doing, I enjoy reading your blog and hearing your eloquent opinion. Maybe write some commentary on The Industry if politics are going to be off limits? ;-)

I found your blog because of your role on LG15:TR, and I'm really enjoying your political discourse! I don't live in California, but the domino effect Prop 8's success or failure may have on the nation is substantial. Thanks for your commentary!

Wow, i'm like Barack Obama inspiring all of this change.........I like the occasional Brett rant every once and awhile, but it's good to hear what you're up to out there in La La Land. Have a great weekend shitface...

i'm happy to continue my blather on the politics of today, but your political voice is important and should be heard!! i think your blog is your blog and it can be whatever you want it to be.

i sent the "register to vote" video to my nephew. just 18, freshman in stevens point, not going to vote. told me two days ago it was too late for him to register. not true.
