Hey Everyone! I have something really cool to share with you guys today! This past weekend I had the great fortune to go see an amazing art installation by the artist Kara Walker in the old Domino Sugar Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The main attraction is a huge sculpture of a Sphinx with the head of a stereotypical African American maid, which, believe it or not, is partially made of sugar. Check out the photo below:
That's me down in the bottom of the picture, waving. Can you believe how big that thing is? Plus the whole building smelled like sugar, it was a delicious experience! But it wasn't just cool to look at and lovely to smell, through this sugar lady and the other sculptures in the installation the artist Kara Walker also makes statements about race, class and gender. If you're interested in reading more about that I'd like to point you to the website (http://creativetime.org/projects/karawalker/), because they're able to examine these issues better than I can explain it! And if you're interested in reading more about Kara Walker definitely check out her page on the Artsy website (https://www.artsy.net/artist/kara-walker), they have tons of information about her! For all of you in the New York area I definitely recommend you check it out for yourself. As cool as it looks in the photo, it's a million times more awesome in person! I just hope Sugar Lady hasn't melted, it's pretty hot in NYC! Oh yeah, and one more thing - in case you were wondering, the Sugar Lady has a pretty impressive butt as well, here it is:
I hope I haven't offended anyone with this photo on the blog. If I have I'll just say this: it's just a butt people, we all have one, get over it - hahahaha! Have a great week!
Hello again, I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day Weekend! Wait a minute, isn't that an oxymoron? If we were gonna spend the Memorial Day weekend appropriately it probably should have involved solitude, reflection, maybe some tears.....anyway, you knew what I meant. And screw you if you didnt! Hahahahhaha!
I went down to Ocean City, Maryland with some friends for the weekend. We had a fabulous time going on rides and stuffing our faces. In that order of course. We also spent some time lying on the beach and I dipped my hooves in the freezing cold water. It was a good time had by all.
Anyway, now it's back to the grind. I have a couple auditions coming up this week and a photo shoot over the weekend. I'm always interested in building my portfolio so if anyone reading this wants to take some pictures message me and let's set something up! And now, since it was just Memorial Day, I'd like to leave you with a little clip of me singing the chorus of Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be an American." Enjoy!
Hello everyone and welcome to my website and blog! My name is Apples Minsprod and I'm an actress, model, and singer who lives in Brooklyn, New York with my best friend Junes and her boyfriend Brian. I love my job(s) and I love my life and I'm so excited to finally share my experiences with the world....wide web that is - hahahaha!
Now let me just address the elephant in the room here and clarify that yes, I am a mule. I walk and talk just like you humans but I am proud to be a mule and wouldn't have it any other way. In terms of my career, I don't consider being a mule a disadvantage, though I can't say that casting directors are blind to it either. I submit myself for all kinds of roles and want to be considered just like any other actress, but here's what I often hear when I walk in an audition room: "Oh, you're Apples the Mule," hence my website address. Sometimes I can convince them I'm right for a part (even if it was written for a human) and sometimes I can't, but I'll continue fighting for equality, and screw anyone who stands in my way! Hahahaha!
So keep checking back. I'll be updating this blog quite frequently with news about upcoming work, anecdotes from auditions and gigs, and stories from my life. You won't want to miss it!
