I worked with my awesome friend Douglas this weekend and put together some pretty great videos. 2 of the videos we made were for my online audition for Glee. Yes. Glee. The musical TV show that’s totally hyped up right now. They’re doing this “talent search” on MySpace involving video submissions and Gold Stars.
It’s silly. It’s fun. I submitted.
If you look at most of the videos that were submitted, people are using their webcams, pouring their hearts out, and singing crazy insanely well with broadway style vibratos. Mine is not even kind of like that. I played to my strength, which is my bubbly spirit and quirky sense of style.
I am rapping and beatboxing in my vocal section. I think that’s pretty unique, eh? A curly little white girl busting a move to Gold Digger.
I know I have a big personality and can be likeable. I say “can be” cause I know for sure that I have haters out there. I’m not sure why people dislike people without a really solid reason, but whatever. It happens. In fact, I was very much an outcast in grade school. I was insanely picked on and went home crying almost every night. The teachers did nothing and my parents were MIA. HS was a much better. Being an awesome cheerleader helped with my status but I never could really fit into the “cool kids.” It just seemed too fake for me and I much rather dance to the beat of my own drum.
This still holds true today. I’m friendly with a lot of “cool kids” but I don’t blend in all that well. My quirky confidence has a vibe that’s all it’s own, and not everyone digs it. I’m retardly supportive of people’s accomplishments. I love it when people achieve their dreams and I think that my strong support sometimes freaks people out. I just want to see people make it. I want to see myself make it!
I’m taking a huge risk moving out to LA. I only have a place to stay, no job, no car. Nada. I’m scared out of my freaking mind. I’m networking/meeting with as many people as possible. Hopefully I can get some freelance work or a good income source soon.
This submission is all in fun, but it may be frowned upon in some circles because it’s a publicity stunt. I could see that from a mile away. C’mon. MySpace?! No one is on MySpace anymore! Plus, over 8,000 people have already submitted. That’s nuts! And this voting thing is a little silly. You can give as many Gold Stars to as many people as you want in any given day. I already saw one lady with 30,000 Gold Stars. That’s a little ridic. Buuuuuut…I still want you to vote for me. 🙂
It’s really easy, but you do need a MySpace account. If you don’t want a MySpace account, just start one up then take it down one week later. You don’t have to enter any personal info if you don’t want to. No biggie.
This is where you vote for me:
If the link sends you to the general Glee Audition website go to:
-> click on the Jodi that doesn’t have a picture (I’m not sure what that’s about)
-> vote for my submission that has both videos working (I have dup submissions)
-> spread the word!
