SPACE MONKEY RELEASE DATE

SpaceMonkey-wp-001b
Grab that calendar off the wall and mark the date: Monday, April 24th will see the launch of my next film, SPACE MONKEY: ORIGINS!

I’ve been watching wrestling my entire life, and the biggest thing that I miss in today’s programming is the total lack of vignettes (short videos to hype a wrestler’s upcoming debut). In my opinion, it’s in these short videos that the audience really begins to understand and tap into what a character is all about.

When I moved to Toronto at the end of 2015, my first order of business was to take in a pro-wrestling show. It was at this show that I first saw Space Monkey wrestle. I was instantly enamoured with his insane gimmick and amazed by how well he married that with his fighting style.

It was love at first sight ( ❤ ) and the wheels in my head started turning immediately.

I approached him with the idea to film a character vignette that transitions into a highlight reel, and that is exactly what we’re releasing on April 10th. I hope I can do my part in helping you all also fall in love with the Space Monkey.

In the interest of educating the non-wrestling fans out there, here are a few of my all-time favourite vignettes from the wacky world of professional wrasslin’:

Mr. Perfect shows off his ridiculously perfect athleticism.

Here we see Ted Dibiase (AKA The Million Dollar Man) purchasing an entire public pool so that he can kick out all of the children (what a bastard).

I have no idea what is going on here, but I love it.

Last but certainly not least, The Mountie instructs some filthy American which direction the USA is.

That’s it, that’s all, folks. We worked our asses off on this one, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

PS. It’s one year today since my last audition. So far so good, y’all. ❤

Mothers, Mongeese & Techno

In the course of the past week, a hand-full of (and by hand-full I mean three) projects have crept into my schedule.

Myself, along with fellow Neptune Theatre Pre-Professional Training Program graduate Sher Clain have been cast in DaPoPo Theatre‘s upcoming production of Christopher Hampton‘s “When Did You Last See My Mother?” which will run this November at Theatre Nova Scotia (The Space). Steven Bourque will be directing.

On Sunday, I met up with Dan Jardine (director of Scanner) for an expirimental tecnho dance shoot, where we ran around and got sweaty. Hawt. Like I said, it’s an experiment, so he’s messing around with the footage as many ways possible. Stay tuned.

Sean Grady‘s bounty-hunter mockumentary “Operation Mongoose.” (produced by cool guy Matt Chisholm) is currently in the final stages of post production. He got me out last week to do a voice over for the minor character of DJ Daryl, which earned me another illustrious IMDb credit, and subsequently up’d my popularity by 311% last week; this week however, I’m down 13%. Horseshit.

Below, is a still frame from “Operation Mongoose.”, I’ll post the trailer when it’s made available.

Sadly though, super-nerd-queen Olivia Munn was gone for the day…

I feel like I was on Live with Regis & Kelly and Jerry O’Connell was there instead. Damn you O’Connell…

TREEVENGE Online!

The day has finally come! The Sundance Selection TREEVENGE, from Jason Eisener has been released online (via Twitchfilm)! Check out the carnage below.

It’s a big file – and looks rather good full screen – so give it a moment or two to buffer…

Life Management Skills

One whole month without an update is downright dispicable! The reasoning behind this is (A) I’ve got nothing going on right now, and (B) I’m not getting off of my ass and creating anything right now.

In the past month, I have moved into a new apartment in North End of Halifax, celebrated my birthday in Montreal, worked too much at the movie theatre, and submerged myself into NHL09 on the Xbox 360.

It has become a problem.

I have always been for the most part a casual gamer (aside from a couple Final Fantasy games), but in recent years, EA Sports’ NHL series has mercilessly been tearing the essence of life straight out of me. I have no idea how many hours I have spent playing this game, but I know the number would surely tarnish my family name.

What I do know is that Glen Matthews, #45 Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs (which is weird because I hate the Leafs– SPORTZ TALK!) just came off of his best season yet recording 61 goals and 31 assists, capturing the Art Ross Trophy and the Conn Smythe Trophy in the process… and somewhere deep down, I know I’m proud.

My alter ego…

What an a-hole.

So in an attempt to win back my life, I recently bought (for $0.99) the iPod Touch application Total ToDo that allows you to create checklists. Pretty minimalistic, but I need it.

So I feel I have my gaming habits under control now that I can divy up my day into random tasks, that is until Batman Arkham Asylum (oh-em-gee) comes out in August! FYI: For years I’ve had recurring dreams where I’m Batman.

IN OTHER NEWS:

  • As of one week ago, I have put on 25 lbs since the beginning of Operation Beefcake.
  • I switched the blog back to it’s old format. Simple. Sleak. Sexy. Hope you like!
  • Tomorrow, I’m filming something for a show on Discovery HD where I get to dress up like a Spanish Conquistador and get shot with an arrow! Pictures to follow!
  • I have an audition in a couple weeks for a theatre production. I’ve read 3/4 of the script and love it thus far. My technique: I’m not allowing myself to read the last portion of the script until I actually get the part. It’s that good! Fingers crossed.
  • A week from tomorrow is July 16th, AKA Andrew WK in Halifax day! I’ve got my ticket, do you?…

It’s Whopper Wednesday everybody! Celebrate!

Hit or Miss

Glen: Hello blog! How are you? It’s been a while, I know.
Blog: It’s been a month… What have you been up to?
Glen: Oh, I’ve been really busy this last month; too many projects to name!
Blog: You’ve been Twittering, haven’t you? I can smell it on you.
Glen: …Yes, a little bit more than usual. That, and Xbox.
Blog: Xbox! You don’t even have Xbox Live; what kind of loser plays single player?! You’re pathetic.

And with that, I have returned to my blog to post a video from the GlenJM Vault. From the year 2006, I acted in Jason Grant‘s short flick Hit or Miss that he produced in NSCC. More blogging soon! Enjoy!

Why You Should Be Nice to Chinese People

With a title like that, how could you not read this blog entry? Well I’m afraid that this post might be more mundane than any other I’ve created before. The reason for this blog: I’m happy.

Earlier tonight I saw Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell, which carried the message “be nice to people with mystical powers” like gypsies and goats. The film immediately created a parallel universe in my mind that branched out from an event that happened last week when at the Scotia Square Mall food court.

I ordered the “Chinese Super Special” for $4.99 from the aptly named “Chinese Food” restaurant. The man (of Chinese origin) fixed me a plate and took my debit card for payment. After three failed attempts of using the debit machine, he conceded, asking if I had any cash, I said no (truthfully), and he said that I can go on my merry way and pay him the next time I’m in the mall. I nodded, he nodded, and I walked away, steaming pile of Chinese food in hand.

A few days later, I went back in with my debit card and some cash as well, just in case. I paid the $4.99 plus applicable taxes and the man looked me in my eye as his wife (also of Chinese decent) came out from the back and hollered her astonishment at the fact that I came back. The man shook my hand and I was on my way.

Forgive me if this entry just seems like a big wank-fest of “Look how nice I am”, and “I don’t hate Chinese people, I promise!” On to the point.

Since then, I have had myself a wonderful week, which is weird for me because (1) my girlfriend is gone, and has been gone for four of five weeks, and (2) I’m a very grumpy man. Very grumpy; so much so that I was Pixar’s second choice for Carl…

Badum-pish? Sorry, I had to throw in an Up reference, I saw it and cried like a goddamned baby.

Regardless, things have been obscenely wonderful!

Now I’m not proclaiming that I’ve been given mystical happiness-powers from the Chinese (especially ones that operate out of Scotia Square Mall— forgive my “round-eyed devil” perspective) but things have been turning up Milhouse left, right and centre ever since. Therefore, be nice to Chinese people, or you might get your ass dragged to hell…

This was “charmingly racist” at best, wasn’t it?
