Former child-actor still haunted by my failed audition for Home Alone 3.
This is me child acting! Spot the difference at the 15-second mark:
Then taught 8th grade science to special needs kids at a bougie school in Tribeca. Now I'm taking classes to become a physician assistant while working as a cook on the side.
Movies: Taken 1, 2, and 3.... Also "Tooken".
Music: I dig playing music and really want to see more shows! So far I've played klezmer, swing, ska, and irish folk (ask me about the Irish folk scene in Beijing). Handy with brass and woodwinds. Current mission: learn the concertina.
Food: Borscht and only borscht. I eat nothing but borscht.
I say, "it's a whistle."
He says, "oh yea, why don't you play it for us?"
At this point the teacher and the class, half of which included the football/lacrosse team, are laughing/giggling/ staring in disbelief.
Using my fife skills I successfully play the pipe, leading my shop teacher to say "Good job mo'. Carry on."
I unintentionally recreated a scene from "outside providence."
