Hey. My name is Anthony Termine. I am 42 years old. I am married with two beautiful identical twin boys and blessed to have a very understanding wife. I was born and raised in Rockland County, NY.
I have been in the construction business for over 20 years and absolutely hate it. Worst business on the planet. Unfortunately the bills have to be paid so I do what I have to do.
My life long passion was to dream was to become an actor. At the ripe age of thirteen I got an agent in NYC. I was on my way.
My first headshot was a Polaroid photo my mother took of me on my front lawn in front of a rotting spruce tree with a face full of pimples during a Nor’easter.
Within weeks I was auditioning for roles requiring 6ft + handsome black basketball players and Brad Pitt like persona. Didn’t take long before I realized my agent was a pimp from the South Bronx, NY.
I continued to pursue my dream over the next few years and through high school. Booked the occasional “extra” job on music videos and movies for a pay check of $50.00 for a 17 hour day and traveling expenses north of $100.
After high school I went to a local college and enrolled in a performing arts program and fell in love with it. Did several plays there and realized this may be my ticket into the business. Got my grades up and with help from my parents enrolled at Marymount Manhatten College in NYC.
I moved into the Big City and was on my way. My first theatrical experience was in my freshman year. It was an interesting one as I beat out the other actors for a part in a play called Beirut. I was full of joy to eventually learn I had won the lead role only to realize I had to strip down naked in front of 500 strangers and my mother who sat motionless and spit up her latte as her sons nuts swayed gracefully within the silhouette of the powerful stage lighting.
I loved every minute of it.
I thought I made the big time and all I did was disappoint the three straight female students that attended the college.
After that I stayed in school for another year and realized this is not going to work. Moved back home and started a construction company. Been doing it ever since.
I Joined Facebook a few years back and began making a few jokes here and there and some of my friends found it entertaining. I continued to post my thoughts and silly scenarios and after a while many had encouraged me to start a blog and express my thoughts.
So here I am.
I hope everyone enjoys what I have to say and remember, if you can’t live you can’t live!
