BREAKING NEWS: Actors Can’t Swim

I’m back with more dirt…

Those actors we’ve been talking about? I’ve realized something new and exciting. And honestly quite embarrassing.

Most of these so-called actors have no idea how to swim which is hysterical because it’s such a basic skill to have. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t born with the skill of swimming but it wasn’t hard to pick up on.

So why is any of this important?

Well, I figured I’d just give some helpful tips just in case maybe you don’t know how to swim either.

Swimming Tips

  1. If you plan on swimming, I HIGHLY recommend using Goggles, these will make your life so much easier when practicing and just spending time in a pool.
  2. Practice your sighting. Without proper sighting, you will find it extremely difficult to improve your swimming, especially at a competitive level. It’s best to look up while swimming with one swift, smooth motion. Practice this..
  3. When you enter the water, hands first. It’s best to pull straight back with your shoulders. Keeping hands and palms facing down, this will improve your speed and if done correctly. Your hands will never cross the center of your swimming path.
  4. Buy Fins if you want them. These will undoubtedly make your time swimming much much easier. Using fins is also beneficial for increasing ankle flexibility too, which everyone could benefit from.
  5. Don’t forget about a swimming snorkel! This cool little invention will allow you to breathe while swimming under the surface of the water! We all need that precious air.
  6. Bring an extra pair of goggles, you never want to find yourself in a situation where you aren’t prepared. If you lose your goggles or they break for whatever reason, you’ll be happy having a backup pair ready to go.
  7. Silicon Ear Plugs. These will help keep water out of your ear canals and possibly prevent an ear infection! It’s best to stay well protected when it comes to anything in the water. The swimming pool you’re swimming in might not always be the cleanest. If you’re not in a pool that receives proper pool maintenance services, you could be in trouble.
  8. Have a small towel with you. While this one seems obvious, you’d be surprised at how many people forget to bring a towel! Don’t fall victim to this.
  9. Train and talk with experienced swimmers. The best thing you can do if you’re interested in improving your swimming is to find a professional or mentor, someone that can show you the ropes and strokes ­čÖé
  10. PREPARE – All of these tips boil down to preparation. If you are not prepared or practicing often, you will find this much more difficult like those silly actors. Don’t be like them…

Air Conditioning saves actors life

Air conditioning repairIt’s been a month since my last post, but I have quite the story for you today. It’s actually pretty crazy.

Okay so let’s start.

You all should know by now, I am an actor. I’m not proud of out because I think a lot of us are stuck up assholes but that’s besides the point.

Regardless of how I feel about actors, our job is more difficult than others think. First of all, acting and acting well are completely different. Anyone can act.. it takes someone special to act well.

Actors are usually working for hours and hours at a time, and as you can imagine, it takes a toll on the body.

Well this day was no different, we had all arrived on set at around 8 AM. First thing we all noticed when walking in that the air conditioning system wasn’t working. It was already pushing 80 degrees outside and surely felt even hotter inside.

I already knew this would be a problem, but not for me. Frequent water breaks and time off set was needed, these conditions were seriously horrible. It wasn’t long before people started dropping like flies. The heat was unbearable.

As the day moved on it got hotter and hotter, we all were hoping it would let up soon. Or else…

Around 11 AM, we figured we would give an HVAC technician a call because we couldn’t take it anymore.

We did just that, called someone to come out and look at our air conditioning as soon as possible because our work was starting to suffer. Not even an hour later, our technician arrived and began working to identify the problem with our unit.

We kept practicing and working, trying to make the best out of a shitty situation.

When all of the sudden, one of our actors who I will leave nameless, passed out because of the heat. His body had overheated and just shut down. I think we were all on the verge of doing the same..

Out of nowhere, our HVAC technician came running into the room and began to help. We really lucked out because none of us knew what to do in this situation.

Luckily he was able to restore our actor back to consciousness where we could start to care for them.

Not long after, the AC was restored and it immediately began to cool off.

Keep in mind it is no later than 3:30 PM at this point, and everyone is fried from the heat.

We continued to work until the end of the day but man was it brutal. Even though the air conditioning was working again, it wasn’t until the next day that it actually felt comfortable again.

So what’s the point of all this?

Well, several things:

  1. Don’t attempt to work in extreme heat, our bodies are not made for this.
  2. Stay hydrated.
  3. Know what to do in the case of a heat stroke

Had we not had our awesome HVAC technician there, we could have been in some serious trouble. Luckily he kept his cool and knew exactly what to do to treat our friend.

At the end of the day, we have to thank the best air conditioning repair in Manassas, Virginia for their help.

Wanna know something funny?

ACTORS.

Hah, what a joke.

No but in all seriousness, I was watching a stand up comedian last name named Anthony. His style of humor is different to say the least.

Your normal person would not enjoy Anthony’s joke. Plain and simple, they aren’t for everyone.

I did however enjoy his jokes very much. I have always had a different sense of humor than most, which I guess helps make me, me.

I think we all find humor in the strangest places.

If you’re like Anthony, you might enjoy the occasional dead baby joke, like I said, not for everyone.

People need to learn to take things less seriously in life. We all only have once chance on this planet and while I do understand different styles of humor, you should never get angry from a joke.

Jokes are meant to make people smile and turn grim situations into something brighter.

Even the most of inappropriate jokes have their place, really helps break up the grieving.

Enough rambling, let’s get down to business.

I know why you’re all here, and that’s to degrade these dirty actors who think they are better than everyone else.

I actually have to avoid watching tv and movies at all costs simply because of how infuriated I get watching them.

I think something needs to be done about this, I can’t keep living my life in fear of something so silly..

I guess the truth is starting to come out.

Something happened to me years ago that forever changed my opinion on actors. I’d like to tell you all but I just don’t think I can muster it up just yet.

I’ve lost my typing appetite…

I know who they think they are

It’s taken me a bit but i’ve finally come to grips with the answer to my last blog post. It’s an answer I didn’t want to hear but it seems to be true.

These guys don’t realize what they are really doing, they are playing with fire. You know what they say about house fires right?

Starts from the ground up and doesn’t end until the roof is gone. I don’t recommend playing with fire because replacing a roof can be quite costly…

If I ever found myself in a situation where I needed a new roof, I’d definitely use my friends from Fairfax.

Most professional COMPANY I’ve ever dealt with, I have no doubt they are the best at what they do. My highest recommendation.

Among other things..

Regardless, I’m on to these clownie actors. We will see how long they get away with what their doing.

It’s really quite disrespectful, all I want to do is share my life with them and all they do is turn away. Lovin’ like this is hard to find, luckily, the truth is not.

Until next time..

Who do they think they are?

These guys have some nerve, don’t they?

Walking around and talking about themselves like they are the cat’s meow.

Well I’ve got news for them.

They’re not and in fact they are anything BUT. I am a little heated at the moment, sorry if you can tell. I really am a nice guy, I just sometimes get so caught up in this crazy world that I have to make sense of it.

Another thing worth mentioning, since I have your attention anyway.

One thing that will always grind my gears is peer review.

I know a bit random but I just find it so crazy that we use the dumb ‘MFer’ next to us to review our paper. Everyone has their own writing style and no two people have ever wrote the same paper. (Excluding plagiarism)

It just seems a bit pointless, to me anyway. I know some people could really benefit from a peer review and this is not to brag about my writing skills because they are nothing to talk about, I mean shit, look at this long ass sentence, pretty impressive isn’t it?

And guess what, I think it’s safe to assume you understood the words I put down on this page, and it’s not a perfect sentence.

Since I will be creating this website/blog in the heat of the moment, things will change pretty constantly but if I can tell you something that stays just between us?

Brand New Blog

Welcome to my brand new blog, I’d like to keep my personal information anonymous for my own protection.

So for the sake of this blog, I will call myself Jabadiya. (jAb-uh-dye-uh)

I am looking to shed a little light on the shady nature of “certified actors” …

So here I am, sharing my thoughts with the world.

My therapist said this would help.
