No Boundariez: The Movie Business Bites

Last time on No Boundariez... The boys attempted to break into the movie business by attending a movie premiere, but failed to make connections. But right as the boys pulled out their copies of Anne Sexton's Wanting to Die and put on Katy Perry's "Thinking of You," their sobfest came to an end when Josh found a poster looking for actors to cast in an upcoming Hollywood film...

So Enrico and Josh decided that it was time to stop constantly daydreaming about winning an Oscar and actually put their plans into motion. They called their manager Michelle. After informing her about the audition notice Josh found and after crying rivers of anticipatory joy, Michelle decided that her two young starlets needed to be prepped properly for their upcoming roles. She sent our duo a spooktastic care package to ensure they’d look the part and get even more into character than thespian Paris Hilton did in her Oscar-snubbed debut in House Of Wax. She also drafted a press release and headshots [feat. Mariah’s/Kelly’s retoucher] to send to the casting directors.

Michelle made one final call to the production company. After listening to some boring lady blah blah blah about appointment times and scripts and the DiReCtoR’s ViSiOn, they got an audition time set up and she sent her two favo celebz-in-traning on their way to prepare. The snoozefest casting director told Michelle that they were putting together a full-action, romance-heavy, sci-fi-friendly dark drama aimed at teens [read as: yet another dumbo vampire flick] and that they were looking for some extras to suck blood, stare off broodingly and be pale in the background while the guaranteed A-list celebs make out and act well [aka look sexxxy] in the foreground.

The next day, Enrico y Josh received their Fed-EX packages and were primed and ready to take the audition room by STORM.

The casting director was well-known throughout Ke$hawood Hollywood and had worked with hot young talent like Dakota Fanning, Thora Birch and Rumer Willis while casting roles for modern day classics like “There Will Be Blood, “Capote” and “The Hottie and the Nottie.” Truth be told, Enrico and Josh were a touch nervous, but they crushed their fears and released their inhibitions, cuz seriously no one else can speak the words on their lips.

The casting director contemplated for prox. 17 seconds before realizing that Enrico and Josh were great for the parts she needed filled. She called the director, then called Michelle to let her know that the boys got the parts!! Michelle called her favorite boys with the great news.

Because the movie was so high quality, Enrico and Josh had to wait a whole two months for the movie to be released.

Michelle called them a month prior with the unfortunate news that, much like Bring It On: Fight to the Finish and Bring It On: In It To Win It, their movie was being released straight-to-DVD.

The boys were a little saddened by the news, but were in high spirits when they learned that their mugs found there way onto the cover of the DVD!!

When the budding stars were searching under their furniture for pennies so they would have enough money to buy the DVD, they got another call from their manager.

Since the studio couldn't afford a DVD printing, the movie was being released straight to VHS. Josh and Enrico tried to find some D.I.N.O.$.A.U.R. who still had a VCR so they could watch the flick, but when neither David nor Polt had one, they gave up, letting their dreams of starring in a hit film burn to the ground.

Feeling defeated, the boyz remembered what Leona Lewis told them on her smash hit single "Happy" - You gotta find your place. You gotta hear your sound.

Inspired, the duo began planning their next shortcut to the life of the rico y famoso.

Just Floating

Wow! It's been over a month!!! I've had a No Boundariez post waiting to be published for a while, and I got my pictures for October 12th, and yet... I've been gone.
I shouldn't have kept you waiting. But I'm here now.

So this post is mostly just an update so my readers know that I am alive. Here's what's going on in my life.

My fall classes are going well!

I'm taking four classes: Literary Realism, Magazine Writing, Studies in Magical Realism, and Novel Writing. I like all of my classes, which for some reason are really reading-heavy. One semester I took four English classes... and I feel like I'm reading more this semester!

The good thing is that I'm really enjoying the reading (except for Robinson Crusoe). Still, I wish I had a little bit more free time. The other night, I was lying in bed and playing with my phone when Delisa asked, "What are you doing? Shouldn't you be reading?"

I'm the president of ink!

This semester I'm president of my school's creative writing organization. I was a little nervous that I would be a bad president since I can be pretty sassy/abrasive/mean, but I think I do a great job at pretending I'm nice and welcoming! Yay!

It's a lot of fun being president after being in the club since freshman year, and I hope I leave behind a positive legacy.

I'm applying to graduate school!

Definitely the scariest part of my senior year is prepping my grad school applications. I'm not applying anywhere near New Jersey, so if I get in, I'll be making a big move away from my home for the past 21 years! The moving is not the scary part; I'm fine with relocating and never have any anxiety about being somewhere new with no friends/family members around. The scary part is going to be waiting for acceptances/denials.

Grad programs are EXTREMELY hard to get into (some accept as few as 8 students a year, more generous ones accept about 20) and although I think I have a strong application, I have no idea how I compare to the rest of the world. And grad schools tend to accept students who have had time off after getting their undergraduate degree... which I'm not doing. On top of that, I'm applying for American Literature, which is the most competitive field in English.
Honestly, I'm not sure I'll get in and I'd be OK if I didn't. I'm determined to go, so I'd reapply every year until I got in and would work somewhere else in the meantime. But getting in would be nice.
So, in order to get into grad school....

I'm studying for the GRE!

The picture says it all.

Also, there's this, for now at least.
