I've been doing this radio show for about a month now and it has been a great time. I love essentially performing dumb-ass comedy with my friend for 16 hours a week. But there are down sides. I don't think I've done laundry in a full month. I keep buying undies, socks and t-shirts. And when you wake up at 1:30 pm on a regular basis, you start to feel a little insane. Once again, I am in a job where I feel a little like a hooker.
One of the effects of being on the radio is that my profile has been raised slightly. This is both a good and bad thing. I really love the stalkeresque fan mail I get because it is simotaneously sincere and totally creepy. And I will probably will love it too much and get killed. But for now it is a lark.
But I did get a hilarious email through my website that I will post. From the tone of it, I am thinking this fella has a sizable sense of humor. And he is clearly smart. The subject line to his email was “Jackie is Hot” and I’m a self-loathing actor-type, so he knew I would open it. But if I get murdered well it is this dude.
“Jackie...hook a brother up with an internship on free fm. I am an out of work aspiring actor that has tried the college thing for a while and is looking for something different and exciting that can make me money as well as fuel my desire to work in the entertainment industry. Thanks Babe. I’m 19...attractive...intelligent...and just freaking fantastic. I am serious about this...if you can set me up with a number..or a person who i could talk to for an interview...or whatever..I would appreciate it greatly..."
