    Jun 12, 2008, 5:24 PM - Sorry I haven't being here lately. #1

    Like the title says, I haven't being posting lately, since a lot is happening in my life as we speak. The bad news is that I am still UNEMPLOYED after leaving the US ARMY, which I got Medically Boarded out for having bad knees and elbows....and possible OTHER medical issues I won't mention here, but basically "PTSD" (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome" after coming from Afghanistan back in Jan 2006.

    I've being looking for jobs online and posting like crazy (not an easy task as it seems), dealing with the wife working still on the mlitary post (Fort Benning), but I have to take her to work since she doesn't know how to drive. Another, (just like NEWS in the middle), I've being working on a NON-SW costume for Dragon*Con, based from a HIGHLY-RECOGNIZABLE character from a POP/ROCK band back in the mid-80's. I will post the progress in a separa thread.....you'll love it, if you were born just after 1970, or were a teenager in the '80's.

    The Good news: Anyway, I got a call last week, after I've submitted a CD with a simulated Radio Broadcast (with phone calls and everything) at a local LATINO Radio Station they've just opened not more than a year ago, they found the recording funny and entertaining....... and I got a gig in a slot available frinday nights from 9PM until MIDNIGHT as DJ of the RADIO STATION! (WTMQ, 88.5 FM, Lumpkin - Columbus, GA). Hence (and thanks) to my experience of my hability to change voices and being MoC for diffferent events (both English and Spanish).

    I am so excited, that I've being working hard to practice and get some stuff done, like research, recording sounds, collecting lists of TOP LATINO HITS. I hope I do good tomorrow. Just wanted to share with you as my home where I started everything....TDH.

    ROTFLMAO!!!

    Believe me, that I've hated MENUDO when they've started (jealous perhaps cause girls were attracted to them???) I was between 6th and 8th grade by then, about 25+ years ago.

    Well, just a hint: My costume is based on my AVATAR i'm using right now, and I call it "SECRET-SECRET, I GOT A SECRET"....that's why it's so SECRET. BTW, I love your job (on the thread about professions).

    my company is based out of atlanta, but I checked and the only possitions they are hiring for is like 2 hours plus from columbus. thought I might have been able to help, but no go unless you are willing to drive, and with gas prices they way they are, I don't know if it would be worth it.
