Well, it has been some time since I have written, so it feels kind of cozy to come back. As a Blogger, we have our up’s and down’s when it comes to writing, and sometimes life itself just get’s in the way. I have been busy, and I consider myself lucky as I see so many of my fellow industry people and peers out of work. I recently locked in a reoccurring role on the hit ABC/Warner Series, “The Middle”. I could not be happier, it’s been a LONG time since I was on a series. But what I forgot were the 4am wake ups for the 6am call time, the 12 to 14 hours a day on set, and then the long sleepy drive home only to crash out and do it all again the following day. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT complaining, but for a guy who has been away from the industry so long it’s been a little hard. I’m tired, but it’s a happy contented kind of tired. Working on “The Middle” is like having a second family, and to top it off, we all get along pretty good! That’s the BRILL thing about being dropped into a series that’s STILL rather new, by the time I got there, it was allready a well oiled machine. All in all, it’s been pretty neat!
I’m still doing “The Neverhood Show” at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ethantudorw, and have had some GREAT guest’s on….Dean Cameron, Grant Goodeve, Kim Darby, and Patrick Labroteaux, in a few days I get to interview a former fellow castmate from “The Facts Of Life”, Mindy Cohn. I’m excited about this show as Mindy and I have not seen each other in at least 15 years. So everything’s good in the Neverhood.
I have made some new friends as well, and as anyone who has re-located to L.A. will tell you, making “Friends” here in LALA Land can be a bit tricky. It’s a dog eat dog industry, so I tend to be a little wary. One of my NEW best friend’s, George Newberry, (Author of “The Devil’s Reign”) attended my recent birthday party, and a couple of weeks later, he invited us to his beautiful home for a classic cocktail/ Birthday party. There Yoli and I met some WONDERFUL people. REAL people, who also happen to be in this business we call “Show”. Everyone had a GREAT time. It was more “Social” than “Industry”, so I had a great time learning about the people I was meeting, talking, and frankly, it was very refreshing. I enjoyed every single person there, I can’t wait for the next one.
On a more personal level, Yoli and I have finally got everything unpacked at our new place. We’re settled, the cat’s (Colby Jack Cheese, AKA “Cat-Pig”, & Tara) have also decided this is a pretty good home. While it may just be a 1 Bedroom Apartment, we are only a mile from the beach and everything we could ever want is within walking distance. I like to do business locally, and have enjoyed getting to know people at Albertsons, the pet clinic (Where we now take the cats) and other small business’s in the area. Beach people are funny. We stop to chat, wave at each other when we meet, and we smile a LOT! Maybe it’s the fresh ocean air, I don’t know, but it’s been a grand adventure thus far!
Yoli and I are very happy together. We have only been married since last October but I doubt the honeymoon will ever end. We learn more and more about each other everyday, even after living together for over 4 years. I consider myself blessed to have not ONLY a wife, but my best friend in the same package. What a lucky bloke am I!
So things are good, and will get even better. The hard work of being on a series, the radio show, and just life in general is keeping the both of us very busy. But we’re blessed by our NEW friend’s as well as our old friend’s and family. I hope that you are as happy and blessed as we are. We’re not at the bottom, and still a long way from the top, but maybe in “The Middle” is a good place to be!
