Another quick pictoblog… can't believe it's only been 10 days since my last one. Seems like I've lived at least one lifetime since then.
Been editing video and typing so many hours on end, I had to hunt down my arm brace (I used to use this in the course of my dead day-job, years ago… still comes in "handy" sometimes).
So swamped, I have not been able to get as much done on the launch of my online clothing stores (Staci-Style, and Net-Frocks). I do have some vintage items at the dry cleaners, ordered my hangtags, and got my mannequin. It's still in the box in the living room, but hopefully I can set it up before I have to leave for Comic-Con, dress it up, take pictures (we're talking hundreds), then get the stores online by early August.

I've made a couple of non-junket related on-camera appearances lately. I'm in the extras for the Parasomnia DVD (U.S. debut in July), interviewing the filmmakers and talent… the movie was shot before I settled on my signature blue streak! So weird to see (prior to that, I was playing with colored ends, colored underneath, etc., with blue, pink, and violet… but in the video I'm just a plain ol' redhead. Boring… and so dark. I must have been experimenting with shades… my real, natural tone is a light reddish gold).
My other "guest spot" is in the lovely and talented Terrance Zdunich's The Tutor art lessons. Here are a couple of screen-grabs… Too bad The Tudors is wrapped, I could have done a crossover appearance as Staci Of Cleaves.

Been keeping busy doing my usual red carpets and junkets…
Suicide Girls Must Die!
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
The above pics are from a little "stand up" intro I did, but I had to pretend like I was holding a magical, glowing and morphing globe as I was talking, then "throw" it at the camera. The visuals will all be added later. While I don't reckon it's too conceited to say I think I am pretty good at winging it in ANY situation ("fake it, till you make it," is my motto) … it's not being too hard on myself to say I would be a terrible, terrible actor. I have the worst grasp on memorization of lines, and having to actually speak and do certain, pre-determined moves at the same time? I am hopeless. I had to do about six takes! I can't wait to see the video when they send it to me. Ha! Still, I had fun with it… we laughed all the way through my flubs.
Another junket tomorrow, red carpets next week... silly me: I keep thinking I'm going to have some me-time (not that I'd know what to do with that, anyway. Although, I am actually about halfway through a novel I am reading for other reason than I want to!).

Surprisingly, I have found a little time for photo-taking — I took a BUNCH of the black 3000GT (also, a funny road sign… typical downtown L.A. madness!). Plus, sweet Tony and me enjoyed a few hours at Madame Tussaud's last week. For only $20, it's a helluva lot cheaper than renting a set (the figures were fun, but there are a lot many alcoves and stairwells that are LOCATION GOLDMINES! So awesome).

I started a Twitter for horror.com — there are three of us posting to it, so hopefully it'll help drive some more traffic to the site.

Been trying to keep up on my artiness. I may catch a Women Photographers Exhibit at MoCA soon. Cool Coralina has a solo exhibit of her art happening in July, but it's in New York. I wish I could go. I miss Manhattan SO MUCH. But, I can't afford to go unless I'm sent for work. And it's been quite a while.
http://www.coralina.net/ - BTW, this image is printable, so if readers in NYC want to print it and present it to MATILDA'S where the art will be showing they can get 20% off their dinner. It's valid from July 15 to September 30, 2010.

I think that brings me up to date for this little online journal and memory-eBook. This is mostly just for me and IRL friends; my other blog is truly my priority.
Parasomnia DVD Giveaway
The Tutor Website
And, on top of all the video coverage for Syfy Channel, TV-Wire/AOL, and good old Horror.com, I also have the following movie reviews online or at the tips of my fingers: Sisters, Suicide Girls Must Die!, Centurion, Love Ranch, The Blood-Spattered Bride, Dracula (Spanish version), Mad Love, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Predators, Fragile, Tomb of Liegia, Grimm Love, Pig Hunt, and The Haunting.
