When the going gets sexy, the sexy get going … and boy-o-boy have I been a busy beaver lately!
It’s been a couple of weeks since my boyfriend, Nick, and I returned from an amazing two-week holiday in Amsterdam, and we’re finally just about over our seemingly never-ending jet lag. So, now it’s time to fill you in on what’s up and what’s been up.
1) I consider myself a fortunate girl, and although I’ve traveled extensively to many exciting and exotic locations including Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Brazil, Fiji, St. Thomas, St. John, Japan, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Australia and South Africa to name a few, Nick, continued to insist that Holland, Amsterdam in particular, would be my favorite of all cities I’ve had the luck to visit. I’m the kind of girl who takes in, enjoys and makes the best of whatever I’m doing, whomever I’m doing it with, and wherever I’m doing it, so I knew I would enjoy our trip, but I had my doubts as to whether or not Amsterdam would make the top of my hit list.
I don’t think it’s wise to tell your man he’s right too often, lest he get a big head, but in this case I have no other option but to do so. Nick, you were right. Amsterdam is now officially my favorite of all the cities I’ve visited.
Nick and I spent two weeks on a houseboat on the Amstel River in Amsterdam. We viewed precious artwork, ate new foods, had sex in new places, took hundreds of photos, and so on, and so on, and so on. There’s too much to tell in my “ketchup” story, but I promise to write an entire blog (in the near future) devoted entirely to Amsterdam, including lots of photos.
And, yes, we did hit the Red Light District … on more than one occasion.
2) Rob Zombie recently announced the theatrical release date (September 16, 2016) for his new film “31,” in which I play “Cherry Bomb,” the girlfriend of leading man, Richard Brake, who flawlessly brings to life the main character, “Doom Head.” I was required to sign a “non-disclosure” agreement, so, as much as I want to, I can’t tell you any more details. For those of you who know me, you understand how difficult this is for a girl like me. Sorry, but you’ll just have to wait till the film is released.
3) I’ve been painting for nearly twenty years (my medium is acrylic on canvas), but since our move from Los Angeles to Las Vegas a year and a half ago, for some reason I seemed to have lost my spark. Since returning from Amsterdam, I find myself newly inspired to create in all areas of my life including, but not limited to my painting. My latest finished piece is a portrait of “Doom Head” from the film “31,” and I’ve almost completed my first city scape of, what else but, Amsterdam. You can view my art at GingerLynnArt.com.
4) Most of my time since our return from Amsterdam has been spent working on my memoirs. I’ve been as they say, “head down, ass up.” My book (the working title is “I Don’t Look Good on Paper”), which is nearly half-way completed now, at this point consists of a title page, dedications, a forward, twenty-three main sections and hundreds of chapters, which include all the juicy stories that make up my life’s journey to date.
One of the stories in “I Don’t Look Good on Paper,” in the chapter entitled “Legit,” is appropriately called “Whore.” Within this adventure I share my experience working on cult film director, Ken Russell’s movie with the same title. I tell the scoop of meeting Ken Russell, my scintillating audition, the phone call from my agent telling me I got the role, the dirt from filming and details of shooting my scenes, including my brilliant performance. And, then, two nights ago as I was at the grocery store shopping for the ingredients of my famous Shepard’s Pie, Nick came across “Whore” on Hulu.
Upon my return from the store, Nick met me in the driveway to help bring in the groceries, then held the door to the house open for me so that I would enter first. As I walked past the living room toward the kitchen, I noticed that the television was frozen on the face of a woman, who apparently was in agony. I believe the words that came out of my mouth were, “What the fuck are you watching?” Then, I realized the image on the TV screen was my own. I was the fuck. Nick cued up the movie to begin when I first appear on film, and we watched it together, neither of us holding back our hysterical laughter.
Only the day before, had I just written my recollection of this very experience, including my brilliant performance. But, upon further review, (actually this was the first time I’d seen this film, as in general, I don’t watch my movies) I discovered that my performance was brilliant … if I were portraying a woman giving birth, rather than dying.
Perception is a funny thing.
From here on, I’ll continue to write as I remember it, and then watch what I’m writing about, and then … write about that. It may take a bit longer to finish the book than I previously stated. LOL
5) My best friend, Tank the Rottweiler, turned 10 years old on August 8, 2016. I took him to the drive-through at an “In-N-Out Burger,” buying him two cheeseburger double/doubles.
