Well helloooooo

I have been sooo busy launching a new show that their has been zero time to write. Learning guitar, singing lessons and a long sitcom schedule knocked me out these last 3weeks. Now we are hitting our stride I can pull the trusty (?!) iPhone out and blog from the make up chair as my awesome rocker wig is being attatched!

The show is called IM IN THE BAND
It follows the life of teeanger Tripp Campbell as he joins his all time fave 80's Rock band IRON WEASEL as they vie for a comeback. I play lead singer and rock legend in his own mind , DEREK JUPITER.
I have not had this much fun and laughed out loud so much in years! And I'm not just saying that coz I'm in it! The reason I chose to do this show was the scripts were hysterical! The band let's the kid join as long as they can live in his mums guest room! It's Spinal Tap millenium style and it's a blast,
I hope you will all check it out when we premier in January on Disney XD
Talking of Disney, the Wizards of Waverly Place movie prems in August, It was a challenge to shoot as I had a parrot on my shoulder the ENTIRE film! But she (parrot) was very affectionate and we had fun together! They say never work with kids or animals but this shoot proved that wrong! The WWP cast were lovely to work with and we all had fun off camera too. It was shot entirely on location in Puerto Rico, which, with the exception of the over 50 spider and mosquito bites I endured, was a beautiful location!
Well, wig is on, make-ups done, time to change and go shoot! We are starting with a scene where we rock the bands new song PRETTY BITTER, a break up song that takes no prisoners!
Ciao peeps luv y'all!

So I'm up at 530am (230am LA time) getting picked up in 30 mins. Time to fly back home.

An uneventful night, had some wonderful suggestions from the twitpack about where to eat but crashed. Would love to return to Atlanta someday, apparantly they offer tax credits for filming so their's a good chance of that!
Sitting here thinking of all the places I've visited to work and film, the adventures I've had so far and it brought a smile to my hangovered crumpled morning face.

Everyone should travel as MUCH as they can. There are peeps I went to school with, in my home town of Southend, England, who's idea of travelling is 'popping down the pub'.

There is sooo much to see, I have only just scratched the surface, I've seen rainforests and deserts, beaches, jungles, mountain tops, villages and huge cities, amazing architecture and mud huts, passionate tango, magic, incredible cemetaries and simple graves of complicated historical figures, protest marches for peace and pot, beautiful oceans, volcanos, a frozen lake with a stunning church in the middle of it (Lake Bled) and the people, the people are wonderful!

The press and media perpetuates the myth that the world is seeped in hatred, war and violence but I haven't experienced that. That's not to say it isn't there, I've worked for USO type army tours, entertaining troops in the Falklands, Northern Island and Belize, I've heard bombs go off during my show (and I'm not talking about the jokes!) it is out there but I've seen so much more! I've seen successful peeps who share their wealth, others with nothing that are truly happy and share their love, people who are sick and dying who are more concerned about others than themselves, generous people, warm, loving and giving. THAT is the common denominator wherever I go and it rocks!

No real point to this mornings blog, other than to say to the world how much I appreciate it.

Go see it for yourself, you can' t have an opinion on politics, religion or fashion, ;), until you have seen how others live, its worth it trust me, as the Captain of the Titanic once said
'have I ever steered you wrong!'
