In A Pickle
Hey Guys! How many of you out there have had weird, random jobs? I have certainly had my fair share. As a performer you don't always know where your next paycheck is going to come from, so when jobs come along you take them no matter how strange they are. Some of the weirder jobs I have had involve some sort of costume and handing out free samples or coupons. It's pretty common to see people doing this kind of work here in NYC, especially around the Times Square area. But even so it can be pretty embarrassing, depending on what kind of costume you're wearing. I have definitely worn some embarrassing ones and here's one example:
Yep, I was a pickle and I was handing out coupons for some new kind of pickle that came out. Thrilling work, huh? What can I say - a mule's gotta do what a mule's gotta do. I definitely got my fair share of interesting comments from passers-by. I think my favorite was from a little kid who asked his mom: "Why is that hot dog green?" Kids are so funny, I was cracking up for hours! Happy Tuesday, catch y'all later!
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!
