Nothing major to report – and that’s a good thing! Frankie’s heart is stable and there is no identifiable cancer. There is a very slim chance that he has a stomach based mesothelioma, but his other symptom make that difficult to diagnose. Currently there is not enough evidence in his blood work to suggest that there is mesothelioma or, if it is there, that it is affecting him. We’re counting that as a win. I also made a quick video with him that you can see below:
We are so grateful for his stable status and it is allowing us to catch-up a little bit. Rene and I will keep on updating via his fund page. Again, without your support we don’t know what we’d do.
I finally put an update video out! TLDW: New agent in the PNW, new gig with a new toy company, new movie coming out, and a beard. The beard isn’t new, but I still have it.
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.
