The Great Atlanta Flood of 2009, and other reasons for a lack of updates

I apologize for the lack of updates recently, but I’ve been busy with quite a few TV/film gigs as well as live performances. Being that I’m a working actor, work takes priority over hobbies… such as this blog.

And I just booked working on “Due Date,” a Warner Bros. feature film directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School) and starring Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan. Although I look nothing like him, I’ve been hired as a stand-in for Zach Galifianakis, so I doubt I’ll have much time to update the blog over the next three weeks while I’m working on the film shoot in the Atlanta area.

Also, there’s kind of a major crisis where I live in the Atlanta area right now, with major interstates and many highways shut down due to flooding. And it looks like Six Flags Over Georgia may be changing it’s name to Six Flags Under Water. My wife and I are fine — we’ve only had about 10 inches of rain where we live, and no property damage at all, thankfully.

Speaking of the ATL flood, a Facebook friend of mine brought the following photo to my attention — I don’t know the source of this photo, and I certainly don’t mean to make light of the damage flooding has caused to surrounding Atlanta areas. But I just couldn’t help but laugh at this.

And the local weather forecast calls for rain through Sunday, so this isn’t over yet.

So anyway, I’m having to take a break from the blog for a bit. In the meantime, updates here will be extremely limited, and I apologize to my readers for having to go on temporary hiatus but blogging doesn’t pay the bills.

While I’m away, I would encourage new readers to poke through the archives. And my regulars should browse the ever-increasing blogroll, to which I’ve quietly made many additions every single week.

Thanks to everyone for their patience while I’m away, and I promise to have lots of new content and updates whenever I’m able to find some free time to do so.

    I didn’t even know there was a flood in Atlanta, which shows you how little attention I’ve been paying to the world lately. Glad to hear you’re doing OK.
