The Mourner, Etc.

Well, here's the latest...
 
First of all I need to post here more frequently. There are a few who check out this blog and I need to increase the content input.
 
I applied to another Reality TV show... one called "Who wants to be a super hero?" It's for MTV, Nash Entertainment, and Legendary Comic Icon Stan Lee. I sent it [about 40 pages of paperwork... no video required] in Saturday. Who knows if I will hear back?
 
But what I am most excited about is the Character I created for the show. They want a new/original superhero so I came up with The Mourner, a guy who's bitter at the apparent death of his fiancĂ©, drowns his sorrows with booze, then gets a visit from a "stranger" (Michael the Archangel) who gives him some "tools" to fight crime and possibly even find the guys who got his girl.
 
Even if I don't get a call back for the show, I've already written a whole first act and an extensive outline for a new feature length screenplay... all in about a week! The show really inspired me. I have a friend who draws for The Simpsons. He did a couple sketches for me. My dude's a Badass (pardon my French).
 
Other stuff going on... I interviewed S W, the Casting Director for The Benefactor. I'm going to write an article about the Reality TV Casting Process and try to get some publicity for my website [yourreel.com] after I make a few changes.
 
Which reminds me... the other Reality TV show I got called back on is/was called The Hilton Project... Paris Hilton's mom is getting into the act. I didn't get on that show either, but I'm inspired to keep trying.
 
Enough for now. Time to sleep.  [Originally written at 2:00am]

Question on Comments

A question for all of you who have posted (or tried to post) comments to my blog entries... Is there a technical difficulty when you try to post using your own User Name so you are forced to opt for Anonymous? Or do you just pick Anonymous so as not to hassle with filing out the information to get a User Name?

I was wondering since all but one of the comments have been from Anonymous and some people have emailed me saying the system wouldn't let them post.
