Friday Bullets: What They Do

PepperHazHope
Hope. Pepper Haz It.

This week’s Friday Bullets are inspired by Sean Bonner, who said, “I’ve never had a good response to the question ‘what do you do?’ and have always felt that whatever I said would be either too modest and not actually explain anything, or too boastful and I’d feel like a douche.” His post is a great read for those of us who live lives and do things that aren’t easily categorized in little boxes.

That said, I went around to some L.A. bloggers to see what they say about what it is they do:

  • Aziz Ansari: On his approach to his character on “Parks & Recreation” “I watch the movie ‘There Will Be Blood’ with Daniel Day-Lewis’ commentary on and listen to what he did, and that’s the same technique I apply to my acting.” (He’s kidding)
  • Mar Vista Mom Sarah Auerswald on what she’s NOT doing anymore: “I had an epiphany about my life: it was truly being wasted doing volunteer work for that bunch of commie parents (the PTA) with their hidden agenda of corrupting our children’s minds, or for the freeloading students at our school. So I quit. Right then and there. And went out to get my toenails done.”
  • Celia of 5th and Spring writes that she’s been writing: “I was named a Film Independent Project:Involve Screenwriting Fellow, Class of 2010. You probably already know Film Independent (FIND) as the fine folks who bring you the Independent Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, this is one of their talent development programs.”

Friday Bullets: The Return

With the recent return of our Blogroll (check the right column, toward the bottom!), I thought it would be a great time to reinstate our Friday Bullets where we give some linky love to other L.A. blogs and bloggers.

Our Blogroll displays a few random links every time you refresh the page and I thought I was going to be able to do a “Bullets” segment by just refreshing the page once or twice. But it turns out our Blogroll is filled with abandoned blogs and links to people who aren’t even in L.A. anymore.

So do a girl a favor, check out the bullets below and then leave a comment if you think there’s a blog that should be added to our Blogroll. (We’re working on clearing out the bad links, yo!)

Should your blog be on our Blogroll? Let us know!
