Shane On The Lot with Spielberg

Ok gang, as some of you might recall a while back, I posted about a new Mark Burnett reality show coming up called "On The Lot" which is basically "The Apprentice" meets " American Idol" for film makers. It will have Steven Spielberg in which they will take 16 film makers from around the world and give them the chance to earn a $1-million development deal at DreamWorks. Some of you posted and said I should try out and go for it.


Ok, well I threw my hat into the mix and now let's see what happens.

I am now asking you guys to help me and get my "On The Lot" submission seen, supported and viewed as much as possible. If you are really interested in seeing me on this show as a possible entry then please post and share this news and my "On The Lot" submission link.
use this link and share as much as you can, get everyone to go and check it out.

(not glad they took my 16,9 film and squished it to 4,3 .. but no control over that)

This is basically my latest music video "Liberty" which I wanted to hold off to release till it went up on the "Lot submission", but we just couldn't wait that long. So there you go guys. I threw my hat in the ring. Let's see what happens.

Here is also my 45second introduction clip On The Lot asked for, but have not posted yet (they are getting swapped with entries I am sure) but here is a look just for you guys:

Back from travels and Star Wars Best of '06

Well I am actually writing to you from the airport in Austria. I have sometime while I wait for my flight back home and this is a good way to pass the time and stay up on the blog. So I am simply sitting in a nice little pub in the Austrian airport with a cup of coffee, a smoke, and Internet access. Ya got to love Europe, as they drink and smoke everywhere! Even McDonald's has beer!

So Austria, Vienna, city of Music. A beautiful place though I did not get a chance to see much due to the weather being mainly snow/sleet/rain and bitter cold winds. The sun did peak out a few days so I did see a bit and the scenery is wonderful. Beautiful architecture in Vienna where I was staying on business. I got a chance to see a few museums and where Mozart lived, so pretty cool. I will also note to follow up on my London trip, the women here in Vienna are very pretty, from what I saw, and they have that whole exotic/mysterious euro look. So there ya go single guys. Between London or Vienna , go to Vienna.

One thing to also note that when you stay in Europe, for the most part, do not expect hotels to be like the states. The one I stayed in Vienna, was nice enough, but there is no gift shop to purchase drinks and snacks, no ice-machine, no room service, and the room is decorated like Ikea owned the place. The rooms are very small and my bed was the size for a child. Good thing I am not a big guy. But the stay was comfortable enough and the people kind and friendly. So yes I got to have good strudel, schnitzel, beer, and brats. I even went to one place that serves a meter beer and 2 meters of sausage, that's over 6 feet, and no I did not order that.. the result would be fat, bloated and drunk. Hmm, perhaps not a bad way to go, perhaps I should have order it. So Austria, Vienna, a great place to see and visit. I just wished I could have seen more but I was there on business and not pleasure.
