Coming up with the second entry for this Tumblr has been the hardest, so have a blast from my past. In June 2005 I relocated to San Fransisco for a month to star in an Independent film called “Busgirl”. It was my first time acting on camera, up until this point I had only done theatre work. Let’s say it’s not my best work. Your first film is a life changing experience. Once you learn how everything works and how you look on screen, it’s different. I can’t even see movies the same way anymore. I wish I knew back then what I know now, but everyone has to start somewhere.

In 2006 “Busgirl” premiered at Cinequest and won the “Viewer’s Voice” award. It was pretty uncomfortable looking at myself on the big screen. I only keep very casual communication with the people from the film. Everyone went their separate ways and the film didn’t really go anywhere after that. Shortly after that it was featured in the front page of the entertainment section of So hundreds of thousands of people got to see my ugly mug.

After I moved to New York, I tried to continue to pursue acting, but my talent agency kept sending me to girl next door stuff and music video auditions. I walked into an Apple audition and they told me from the get go I was too unique looking to apply, but they would still allow me to do so (They liked how high I could jump). I did a lot of extra work. It’s funny how scripted reality TV is. Then I picked up a camera and forgot about acting for a while.

Anywho, enough rambling! Enjoy!


Hi, here’s video number four from my album Brook Pridemore’s Gory Details.  It’s called “No One Belongs Here More Than You."  Share and enjoy.  Miranda July, please don’t sue me.  Mastication is the sincerest form of flattery.  We’re having a cassette release party at Mercury Lounge, 1/29.  With Ken South Rock and Kung Fu Crimewave.

What the what?

Wisconsin Lawmaker to Spousal Abuse Victims: If You Are Being Beaten, Just Remember the Things You Love About Your Husband

If you need any further proof that we are in the midst of a full-on patriarchal biblical-religious war on women, a Wisconsin lawmaker is happy to provide it.

According to Yahoo News, Wisconsin Rep. Don Pridemore helpfully suggests that, rather than divorcing an abusive spouse, you should try to remember the things you love about the guy while he is beating you up.

In Wisconsin – yes, the same state where lawmakers have introduced a bill penalizing single mothers for being unmarried – a Republican state representative has come out against divorce for any reason – even domestic abuse

Instead of leaving an abusive situation, women should try to remember the things they love about their husbands, Representative Don Pridemore said. “If they can re-find those reasons and get back to why they got married in the first place it might help,” he told a local news station.

Yahoo continues:

Pridemore – who, coincidentally, is a co-sponsor of Republican state Senator Glenn Grothman’s “being single causes child abuse” bill as well as a controversial voter ID bill that was ruled unconstitutional earlier this week.

Grothman now asserts that not only is single parenthood a factor in child abuse, women in particular are to blame for it.

Basically, if you are female, Mr. Grothman and Mr. Pridemore feel you are worthless once you leave the delivery room. According to Yahoo, “while [Pridemore] thinks women are capable of caring for a family "in certain situations,” fathers are the only ones who provide structure and discipline. If they don’t grow up with married biological parents, Pridemore says, “kids tend to go astray.”


And what’s his excuse?
