No reason to bury the lead, Rene and I are moving to Portland, OR in May and we’re really excited! We’ll be blogging and videoing and maybe even Snapchatting the process, so make sure you follow us on all of that (links below).
Here’s the announcement video:

Happy New Year!
If you didn’t see my last video, I was able to achieve the primary goal of booking a job on TV at the end of the year! In case you missed it, here it is:
The show is a new show that has an NDA the length of my arm so I can’t say a bloody thing about it, but I promise I won’t shut up about it once I can. So now that I can unironically call myself “Television’s Curtis Andersen” again it’s time to move on to Phase 2 – getting on a genre show! What’s a genre show? Watch the new video to find out.
Also, to add a little actual advice to this blog after a long stretch of just me talking about myself and auditions, I talk a little bit about the importance of getting a good headshot – because I’ve seen a lot of BAD headshots lately.

I actually booked on Day 400 (which was kinda’ neat in a numbers way) but I’m superstitious so I didn’t want to say anything until the shoot was complete. The primary objective has been achieved before the end of the year! Now begins Phase 2 – Operation: Genre Show!
I am writing this in the last hour of January 1st, 2016. These last two months have been a whirlwind mostly focused on my quest to become a working actor again epitomized by the Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen series of videos on my YouTube Channel. Here’s the latest one from today:
And here are the links to the playlists for November and December, in case you want to catch up:
In addition, my friend Author Jeff Garvin and I are trying an experiment where we go through and read sections of our old high school journals. Yes, it’s exactly what you think:
Rene and I have big plans for this year! Keep your eye here for all the info!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful new year’s day and that you all have a great 2014.
For this year’s project, 52 in 52, I will be writing 52 short stories over the 52 weeks of the year. The work week is Sunday to Saturday and the story from the previous week will be posted on Monday. So next Monday, January 6th, my first story, The Magician, will be available here to read. To make this first week work out I actually started on Sunday December 29th. I don’t think that messes anything up. I think the worst case scenario is that I may end up with 53 stories? But, really, that’s not so bad. I could probably research that and check, but who has the time?
Anyhow, every Monday this year (barring any unfortunate events) there should be a new short story on the blog. I look forward to your comments and hope you enjoy them. So far this has been a lot of fun! Right now I’m brimming with ideas and the hope that I had of this kick-starting my creative brain has paid off! Here’s hoping the good stuff flows for the next 51 weeks!
See you next time.
I keep thinking that I’m going to do a video from the elliptical machine or one of the weight machines, but I’ve been too chicken to do it. I build up the gumption and then, as soon as I’m in the room, I freeze up. I feel like there is definitely some kind of unspoken law that cameras remain out of the gym. Is this accurate? I look forward to your responses in the comments.
In the meantime, I’m really enjoying my workouts and have been looking forward to them with excitement so far. Part of my motivation while exercising is listening to music. I used to listen to podcasts, but I’ve been using my phone as my Walkman (follow the link if you’re too young to remember what that is) and I don’t currently load anything to it, I play everything through the net. I’ve been using Pandora since it does not require a subscription.
I used Kylie Minogue as the seed. The rhythms are consistent and energetic, the songs are fun and easy and it really helps you blowout a cardio routine. I played with a few other styles when I first started working out, general pop, New Wave, rock; but none of them worked quite as well as the Kylie station is.
While I’m not seeing huge results yet (duh, it’s only been a week), I am definitely feeling results. Even though it’s only been a week I’m already feeling more energetic and alert. My metabolism must be kicked up a notch because I’m suddenly warm everywhere, even when I’m out with Frankie doing the late-night potty, and my appetite has adjusted. Instead of eating due to it being the scheduled time to eat, I’m actually hungry. So far I feel like these are positive signs.
What do you listen to when you workout, if you workout? I’m open to listening to new stuff, Kylie only has, like, a dozen albums.
See you next time!
I’m sorry I haven’t updated this blog in a while, I recently got a new job in addition to the jobs that I already have and getting the schedule and everything sorted has required a lot of time.
That being said I’m also going to Oregon for about a month to train for this new job.
You might be asking yourself, “What does that mean? Why the hell are you even mentioning this?” Because I’m going to be in Oregon for the first time and without my wife I’m actually probably going to be blogging more, but the Project: Iron Man blogs that you guys have been reading like crazy probably won’t be back until August (although I got one more three book arc that I’m trying to get out before I go).
Yeah, this was really a Project: Iron Man update disguised as a general update.
See you soon!
