Quit Staring At My Chest . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Thursday, October 19, 2006

The deed has been done - at least I thought it was - and I sent a 6-pack of pictures to the NYC agent yesterday to see if this grab for easy money was going to happen or not.

Those images which made the final cut were:

The last one was sent more as a joke, and also a confirmation that I do occasionally wear clothing while hanging around my loft.

But I've met the agent in person a few times already, and it was always the body that was holding me back from a free ticket to New York.

I got the call today, and the verdict . . . Is still out, although he did say that I looked "great."

However, to be absolutely certain he needed some pictures taken where I wasn't flexing my chest to see if the lower portion would be a deal breaker. The agent has a chest fetish that would put Larry Flynt, Hugh Hefner and Charlie Sheen to shame and I have a sneaking suspicion that mine is a bit small for his liking.

Despite my guess that it won't quite cut the mustard, I'm now back on my diet (I never fully vacated as I was waiting to hear from him) and it is marching ever closer to 10 weeks. I need to "peak" again on Sunday to take more of these relaxed pictures that will help him determine my future in modeling, which has about as much soul as cornered rattlesnake and seems twice as deadly to me right now.

I'd go on, but I have chicken breasts to cook, carbs to throw out and then I get to start cutting my water consumption on Friday. This has sure been a hell of a fun ride for what will likely be no pay-off beyond the self-satisfaction of knowing that I gave it everything I had short of steroids.

And while that won't win me any trips to New York it will keep my balls from shriveling to raisins, which I suppose, is cause for celebration in and of itself.

  2. well, your agent and I have something in common! lol
    Thanks, I have a new screen saver now.

    *kidding (or not)

  3. Maybe you should try another agent. Good luck!

  4. Jlee - Please send $.99 to Austin and we'll call it even.

    Sarcastic - Unfortunately, he's one of the best-connected in the industry. And he's the only one I know. And I'll take all the luck I can get. Thanks.

  5. JLee Says:
  6. off topic, but I laugh when I think of "2 Dollars" because of "Better Off Dead". Is that where you got the name?

    "I want my two dollars!!" hahahha

  7. Miss Ash Says:
  8. LMAO @ Jlee.

    Great photos i especially like the 1st one. Hopefully your hard work will pay off for you. What does your wife think of all this? Probably enjoying the new hotter you.

  9. Jlee - I'm glad someone finally called that out because that was the genesis of the name.

    Miss Ash - Thanks & I'm not sure the trade-off in my mood and energy levels are worth it. A little money might help.

  11. So - mabye you've already explained it - but why won't you cut the mustard?

    What else could this agent possibly want? Looks like you have 2% body fat and could kick Arnold's azz! Lower body is a deal breaker? What the heck does that mean? like you forgot to work out your legs or something?

    Good luck!

  13. You have so much discipline!!! You should be very proud of yourself. good luck cookie!!!

  14. Cassie D - Because I don't think my chest hangs "low enough" for him as it's all about chest in his book. Legs mean nothing to him (except that I have them) and thanks for the compliment, but I still think Arnold could whip me silly.

    Nobich - Thanks, but even mentioning the word cookie just hurts right now.

  15. Melissa Says:
  16. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. And I LOVE the orange towel. I want to try something new in my bathroom and that orange is just great.

  17. Carmel Says:
  18. I thought your agent would have said "you're in" so now what?

  19. Lucy Says:
  20. Dude, what are you talking about, the chest rocks!

  21. Melissa - I like the orange too, and it was a gift from my mother, so I'll have to thank her again. Go orange.

    Carmel - I wish that were the case as things are still very much up in the air. And I'm ready for some kind of decision for good or ill.

    Luce - Thanks, and I just hope it hangs low enough for the agent. It's just getting semi-ridiculous.

  22. I find when the training is going well, the discipline required actually carries over into other parts of my life.

    What about an acting gig, dawg? Wouldn't that type of work enable you to also network and pitch your script?

  23. That's a good idea, but I think my acting ability would be fairly suspect. On the other hand, that never stopped James Franco or a bunch of other people with little to no talent. But the ability to network and get our scripts read is one of the driving forces behind this attempt to get to NYC. We'll see.

  24. Kayla Says:
  25. I'm not sure what you mean by a
    "low hanging chest".
    In a woman, that is something we fear as we age....hahaha

    Well, you look great and you certainly have the discipline to handle yourself in the Big Apple.
    I'd sign you! :-)
    Best of luck

  26. JLee Says:
  27. I can't believe no one made the "can I borrow your towel" joke? what gives?

  28. Kayla - I only hope your signing ability transfers over, and the low hanging part refers to how the lower portion of the chest drops and looks. Strange I know. And I'll take all the luck I can get - thanks.

    Jlee - My car just hit a water buffalo; can I borrow your towel? It's never too early or late for a "Fletch" joke.

  29. Jackie Says:
  30. Who is this agent? Are you sure he isn't my friend Omar?

  31. I don't know your friend Omar, but I know that the agent's name is Mike, so I assume they are not the same person.

    If I'm wrong, please send word immediately.

  32. Sherry Says:
  33. Damn, these pic posts of yourself sure did garner lots of attention and comments.

    Nice tan line though ;-p

    And the no/low-carb thing - remember, it's not a diet ... it's a lifestyle.

    ***** Wishing you luck *****

  34. Thanks for the luck, and you're right about the lifesyle - but it's not really one that I want so much.

    As for the tan line, it's been worse in the past as I even had a Mystic Tan this time to cover some of it up. I live in Austin, not France.
