1st of all, let me tell you now I suck at spelling so, laugh all you want, I know i suck so i guess that counts for something. I guess I should tell alittle about my self. well Im Eb. NO that is not my first name. first question people always ask me. NO Eb is short for Elbert. witch is my Middle name. my first name is James. Crazy huh? some do call me that but most call me Eb. I like it because it sticks out. I was named after my Dads Father. so that makes me the 2nd. and he went by Eb as well. He died when my dad was 11. so When I came along they all called me Eb. Except my grandma. she always calls me Ebby, hence the name online. I have no Idea why I put that because I hate when she calls Ebby.
so I guess you are asking, What importence does this guy have in the improv community in Utah? Well I am on of the general managers of Off the Wall in Ogden. Why they brought me on as a manager of the troope, I have no clue.
I started improv when i was sixteen. I learned all i know from Bob Bedore, Andrew, Paul, Drew, Becca, John, Charlie and every one else with Quick wits. I like to think I my style is a mix of all those guys with alittle twist of my own. I played with Quick wits most of my improv life. I started playing with them in Clearfield and have played with them many a time up in Salt lake. Dont play with them now. Wish i did though... HINT HINT. in playing with Quick wits, i did get the chance to play along side of many members of Knock your socks off. maybe two or three times. I have also praticed along side Ceder city troope, Off the Cuff, I loved it down there. I have a good feeling for that troope. they have a so much energy. But i play manly for OTW right now. I love it. I have many friends in different troopes around the state. and some out of state. I learned improv along some really funny improvisers, people like Austin Nava, Steve Uribe, Adam Rossander, Matt Spears, heck I Ryan who help runs this web site, i was on his team for his very first show. if thats not a claim to fame i dont know what is. as for out side of improv. I currently attend the UofU as a theater major, No not appart of the ATP up there like Ben is and Joe Rogan was. But I did Try out this year and have yet to hear back. oh well first time trying and if i dont get in well there is next year. well if you want to ask me any questions fill free. I would always enjoy that. do get on form time to time so. but I going for now. the Cd i was burning is done.

Ok so I tried out for the Actors in Training program at the U of U. and I have been given alot of good feed back. But now every one is hearing and I haven't heard yet and its driving my nuts. I feel good that I have not got a rejection letter though because they have been given out to. so i guess that no news is good news. I going crazy! let me know.

So I had my call back this evening and man i have not been so stressed out over a try out in my life. I broke out, I couldn't sleep( well i never sleep any ways) I my hand were shaking. man it suck more then a brand new hoover.undecided not fun. But as soon as i hear I'll post something on here. I hope i have as much luck as Derek has. He recently was given a full ride to Weber in musical theatre. not only do i want to get in but It seems to me that many of the atp students already there want me in to. I dont want to dissapiont them. I want in so so soooo bad. I bet most of you are sick of hearing this crap.
so I went to see the ring Two the other day, and it sucked more then my call back. dont go see it. wait for cabel. its that bad.
lets see alittle about me... what to talk about. Oh I work for marriott world wide, and am on the phones all day, so I figured out that work is the best place in the world to test out new characters, see if they work or not. Its fun.
I havent ever talked about music on here. so on April 5th one of my favorite bands (Reel Big Fish)is releasing there latest CD called were not happy until your unhappy and I cant wait. I love Reel Big Fish. If you like ska and funny, uptempo music I highly recommend them. I dont know what else to talk about so. hmm. if you ever have any confused Just ask me. I'll answer them. most of them time

Wow I repeat alot of crap. I guess I should pay more attention to that. so I am sporting a new Icon now, of a very funny man named Eddie Izzard. If you dont know who he is then find out, he is one of my fave's. I like his style, and his stage presince. and is a good actor. I always like people that can do both Drama and comedy. Show talent. I like to think of myself as one of those people. Im funny but am also a good actor.
so I was sitting with my friend Julie a while back and she mad me realize Im only three steps from Kevin Bacon, and that to me kicks ass. I was in this Internet safety film when I was in high school, its called I-Safe for those that are intrested, any who, I'm in the basketball scene. I did not know is Rob Schneider is also in this film. so it goes from me to Rob, step 1, Rob to Sean Austin in 50 first dates, step two, and then finally Sean To Kevin Bacon in White Water Summer. So that Kicks ass. I 3 steps away. I beleive Andrew Noyes of OTW is close too. I think he's four steps though.
So soon OFF THE WALL will have its new web site up and that good cause the one we have now really sucks. but soon there will be more. I noticed today that 77 people have looked at my journal, thats crazy, I had no idea I was that loved so for those of you who read this I hope you enjoy my inner thoughts.

So I recently have been going to the movies alot and I must say. I love the movies, every thing about them. the over priced popcorn and drinks that you eat only during the previews. the previews, and then a kick ass movie. now even if it sucks i still love them. I recently saw Sin city and it was probly one of the best movies i have seen in a long time and would highly recomend it. grin

some one asked me, Eb Why do you wear wrist bands so much?
Well I started because I say is as a good luck charm really, and later on I found them useful on stage to wipe my face off if i got sweaty

Hey every one who reads this, sorry i havent written in a bit, but my girl friend was up from Cali and I spent alot of my time with her insted of on the internet talking to you. so as you have read I made it into the Actors in training program at the UofU and I am so happy. but then my girl friend went home to cali so im sad again. but soon the OTW turning 2 show is coming up so im happy again. so yeah. Oh i recently saw the Amityville horror and i know not many people liked it but I did, I like Ryan Renolds. He did a good job with it and I did jump in the movie a few times, and i dont jump in movies, disspite some stupid parts i thought it was pretty good as far as horror movies go.

Hey every one over 200 people have read my journal, or some have just come in and looked and said this is stupid, and then go some were else on the web site.
I am now done with finals, and school until the fall, that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. OTW is now 2 and thats cool. I really love it up there. I am still working at marriott. soon Im off to go on vacation and thats going to be fun, my 21 birthday is coming up every thing in my life is great. so I know I have talked alittle bit about how i have a girlfriend that lives in cali, and let me tell you alittle more about her, Here name is kealy and we met in high school our jr year, but really didnt get to know each other until sr. year. we have been together for over 2 years now. crazy. and she is in cali for school but is moving up here after chirstmas. so that will be a happy day for me. right in time for our 3 year anniversary.
Oh Josh gave me a horror movie I have to rate, its called Dog Soldiers. This movie takes place in Scottland, and is about a team of soldiers on a training run, but soon turns into the real thing and now they are the ones being hunted down.
all in all I liked this movie, it was pretty entertianing but not scary at all, so i will have to give it a B+. good movie Josh
