A Day in the Life: Being an Extra for TED


So yesterday I had the opportunity to be an extra in the upcoming movie TED with Mark Wahlberg and many others. I went for it! You had to be 18 and everything. I didn’t get paid for it because we weren’t recruited from Boston Casting but that’s okay I guess. It was from 7pm to 3am which wasn’t that much of a struggle for me. I had my trusty cigs by my side and the fact that it was at the Hat Shell in Boston. It was a concert scene…And Marky told us all that it was only about the last 5 minutes of the movie. Like FUCK YOU for making us stay for that long for only 5 minutes of the movie. It’s alright though, I enjoyed myself.

So what exactly made it fun?

Well, the fact that the guest star was Norah Jones and I didn’t realize until after everything she was a pretty damn good person. Should I mention the other people that were there? Let’s see..

  • Mark Wahlberg (obviously)
  • Norah Jones (she was doing the concert part of the movie TED)
  • Seth MacFarlane (Stewies voice in Family Guy. He is even more hilarious in person that on the show).
  • JJ from 103.3 for those Boston people.
  • Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille (Boston Bruins players)

They were also handing out raffle prizes that consisted of TV’s, iPad 2’s, iPod Nano’s, and signed DVD’s of the Fighter and Family Guy. And of coarse I didn’t win. But for those that care…my losing number was 722000. Very even, right? You’d think I could win it. The TV would have been nice for college. Guess I’m stuck on getting my own! Oh, the TV’s were 30” flatscreen Insignia’s….Yeah…pretty awesome.

But anyways, I didn’t get home until 4am. Which is alright. But at least they fed us food and everything, you know?

Seth MacFarlane on Playing It Straight for His New ‘Holiday for Swing’ Album

Holiday For Swing, Seth MacFarlane’s Christmas-themed follow-up to 2011’s Grammy-nominated Music Is Better Than Words (due this fall via Republic Records), finds him tapping a 65-piece orchestra and veteran arranger-producer Joel McNeely to perform a handful of well-known (“Let It Snow,” “Baby It’s Cold Outside”) and semi-obscure yuletide chestnuts (Frank Sinatra’s “Christmas Dreaming,” Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney’s “Snow.”) MacFarlane called Billboard from the Boston set of Ted 2 to reflect on the album, which was recorded from Christmas Day through New Year’s Eve last winter between Los Angeles and London.

Do you have any favorite holiday albums that inspired the sound?
I’m not frankly a huge conossieur of holiday music, but I love orchestral jazz. I love that era of high orchestral musicality that bears a lot of similarities to holiday music in a lot of ways. As far as holiday records, gosh I don’t know — the Home Alone soundtrack?

"Baby It’s Cold Outside," a duet with Sara Bareilles, is one of the more recognizable songs on the record — but also one of the more controversial since its Frank Loesser heyday. What made you want to tackle it?
That’s a song that surprisingly has somehow made the leap into the modern era without being called out for what it is. The girl is clearly saying no. But again, it’s just a joy to sing against orchestration that’s that good — you really gotta be shitty to screw it up I guess. 

How do you rationalize your faction of fans who may continue to expect comedy from your musical projects?
Surprisingly, a good chunk of Family Guy fans recognizes why we do this — they see that against all the comedy is a legitimate regard tor the importance of music. It’s virtually the only show left on TV that uses a live orchestra for every episode. We use anywhere from 50 to 90 people, depending on how many players are available.

An edited version of this story originally appeared in the Aug. 30 issue of Billboard.

"Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again." - Zelda Williams

So Hugh Laurie’s new book “The Paper Soldier” (which is a follow up novel to his book “The Gun Seller” PUBLISHED IN 1996!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) will finally get released in January 2015 (after it was set to be released in 2007 trololol). Only 8 years delayed - who would have thought?! xD

god is real

The Gun Seller was great. Is there any proof that the book has been written this time? This book has had multiple release dates and so far on each release date Hugh hadn’t written the book yet.

It seems to me it has more official look this time. Fingers crossed. (On the other hand, if he’s supposed to release third album…)
