Pheaturing Stephanie Pressman

Hello, welcome to another entry of the Phile, I am your host Jason Peverett, star of the new TV show "Groveland". Batman is not in that one either. How are you?  Four hundred thousand people... including Al Gore, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Leonardo DiCaprio took to the streets of New York City last weekend, with even more participating in metropolises worldwide, to demand that world governments begin taking more actions to halt and eventually reverse anthropogenic climate change. All I have to say is dear climate change organizers in NYC... great job but including a few giant balloons of famous animated characters wouldn't have killed you.  Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen has announced that he is re-taking up his beloved smoking habit... something he reluctantly gave up in his 50s now that he is entering his ninth decade of life. "I’m looking forward to that first smoke. I’ve been thinking about that for thirty years," the 80 year old told the San Francisco Chronicle. "It’s one of the few consistent strings of thoughts I’ve been able to locate." Isn't he afraid it's going to ruin his voice?  A former Texas waitress recently revealed that she paid talk radio star Rush Limbaugh back for his disgusting generosity by getting him to inadvertently support abortion rights. After the conservative activist twice left Merritt Tierce $2,000 gratuities at the steak house where she was working, she took the money and gave "a sizable chunk" of it to to the Texas Equal Access Fund. "He’s such an obvious target for any feminist or sane person. It was really bizarre to me that he gave me $2,000, and he’s evil incarnate in some ways." He'll think twice before sharing his money with hardworking people again.  A spacecraft launched by India successfully entered the orbit of the planet Mars yeserday. They somehow managed to achieve this feat for only $74 million, which is less than the cost of the movie Gravity. Though, to be fair, their space program did not have to work George Clooney's fee into budget.  The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, a philanthropic organization led by the extremely wealthy Rockefeller family, which made a great deal of its vast fortune in the oil business announced Monday that it would be divesting from all companies related to fossil fuels. "We are quite convinced that if [John D. Rockefeller] were alive today, as an astute businessman looking out to the future, he would be moving out of fossil fuels and investing in clean, renewable energy," explained fund president Stephen Heintz, who clearly knows something that the rest of us don't. Move all your money from oil to shotguns, people!  It took them about seven years, but evolutionary scientists have finally managed to find the "crocoduck" that creationists Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort infamously trotted out as evidence against evolution, based upon its apparent lack of existence. The newly discovered Spinosaurus was a 50-foot dinosaur that had features similar both both crocodiles and water fowl, making it an actual, real-life crocoduck. Just think of all those evolutionists who made fun of Cameron when he discussed this creature seven years ago, calling it absurd. They must feel pretty stupid now. It sure would be awkward if science figured out that Kirk Cameron was the missing link.  Legendary psychedelic groove band Pink Floyd just released the cover art for "The Endless River", the band's first album since 1994's "The Division Bell". I'm not a Pink Floyd fan but thought you'd like to see a picture of the cover.

The image of a man steering a boat across a sea of clouds seems perfectly designed for dorm room walls all across the world.  In the news recently there's been a lot of talk of a terrorist group called ISIS. Back in my day I Isis was her...

When I first heard on the news people talking about ISIS I though it was a new Apple product.  Do you kids like video games? There's a brand new Star Wars video game that looks cool. 

God, I wish that was real. I don't play video games, but that one I might've.  I mentioned this last week, and I'll mention it again, I always thought Pokemon was Japanese but apparently it's British. I should've known if anyone. For proof you nay have to look at them and see what they're named.

Hahaha. Cockwomble. That's really funny. I wan an hang my name to Allister Cockwomble. I'm so stupid. Okay, and now from the home office in Port Jefferson, here is this week's...

Top Phive Things Overheard At The New York Climate Change Rally
5.  I hope President Obama can shift gears from doing nothing about guns and income inequality to doing nothing about climate change!
4. The subways are all going to be so crowded after this... I'm glad I rented that stretch Hummer to get here!
3. As Occupy Wall Street proved, if impassioned demonstrators converge on New York and make their voices heard, hey can accomplish anything!
2. I'm not saying we SHOULD riot... I'm just saying that if we DID, it'll be nice if we were marching near the Apple Store...
And the number one thing heard at the New York Climate Change Rally was...
1. We have to do something... it's late September and I'm drinking ICED coffee. This is insanity!

This is a real easy one. Very clever as well. If you spot it email me at Speaking of emailing, as you know on October 14th, 15th and 16th I will be posting the Phile from Long Island, New York and I thought it'll be cool if I had my L.I. readers email me a picture of something to do with Long Island and I will pick the best three and post them here on the Phile. I received a few good ones but a lot I'm still getting are pictures of things that could be anyway. A photo of the Long Island Sound looks like any body of water, know what I mean. My old school friend Jarred who lives on Long Island sent me this picture so you can get an idea of what I want...

Nothing like a traffic jam on 347 while they do road work. See? Something typical Long Island. So, continue emailing me those pictures to Alright, I live here in Florida as you know, and here in Florida some of of the strangest news happened. That's why I have a feature called..

Her name is Jasmine Tridevil. She's 21, from Tampa, Florida (of course), and her name isn't the only thing that's fake. She also has three breasts on purpose. She was born with two naturals and then, after being rejected by 50 surgeons, found one doctor at the bottom of the barrel who would stick a third one on her right in the middle. The doctor had to make that boob from scratch out of silicone, skin tissue from her stomach, and a mini-implant to create a protruding nipple. Later she had an areola tattooed on to complete the look. As Miss Tridevil explained on The News Junkie program on Orlando radio station 104.1, the whole procedure cost her $20,000, and her doctor required that she sign a non-disclosure agreement protecting his identity so that he "wouldn't get in trouble." But why, you ask yourself in your sane-person's head, would she do this? She wants to become an MTV reality star.  MTV hasn't signed on or anything, but she's hired a camera crew on her own to follow her around. Jasmine, if you haven't come up with a name for your show yet, may I suggest "Three Boobs on a Little Lady"? The show is going to be real, and it will be spectacular. Documenting her life as a three-breasted woman, she saved the moment she showed her mom what she had done for the cameras. This is sad for her family, but great for anyone who wants to see footage of her mom freaking out and running out the door. Her mom now refuses to speak to her, and will not let Jasmine's sister speak to her, either. She told her dad on camera, too. Apparently, he "really isn't happy."  Is she crazy? According to Tridevil, "I am crazy. But the crazy people don't know they're crazy, so technically since I know I'm crazy, I'm not crazy." Gotta (third) hand it to her, that's the exact kind of irrational circular logic that is perfect for reality TV. Television stardom is her goal now, but she claims that's not why she got the surgery. She says she is sick of dating, so she made herself "unattractive to men." She clearly underestimates man's motivation. On the plus, side, whoever created that three-boob-bra Etsy store finally has a customer base. 

Third boob's a charm. Haha. Alright, it's Thursday and it's time once again to talk football with my good friends Jeff and Lori in a feature called...

Me: Hey there, welcome back. It's week four already. Time is flying by, right? 

Jeff: Time definitely is flying by. We are now almost to the 1/4 mark of the season and there really isn't a clear cut favorite. Every team has strengths and weakness so far. So we shall see what the rest of the weeks bring us now.  

Me: There's no new NFL controversies this week, are there? 

Jeff: Other than Jonathan Dwyer, an Arizona HB that was also arrested for being part Ray Rice and part Adrian Peterson for domestic abuse and child abuse charges. He threw a shoe "near the child".  

Me: Oh, I didn't hear that story. That's crazy. I think the big football news is Roger Goodell, am I right? Do you think he should be fired? Did he really do anything wrong do you think? 

Jeff: Goodell is as good as gone. I think he should be fired. Regardless of if he had seen the Ray Rice video, what he gave Rice originally was a slap on the wrist. It was only after seeing how bad it was did he step up and do something more towards Rice. He admits he handled it wrong, but I think the damage was all ready done.  

Lori: I think the bigger issue with Goodell is that he's claiming ignorance in the whole case, which he'd told New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton was an unacceptable excuse only two years ago during "Bountygate." There's no way he has the support of the coaches, even though he claims he does.  

Me: Good point. Sad news though, a player from the Titans passed away, am I right? 

Jeff: Rob Bironas died in a single car accident. He wasn't currently in the league this season. He was a free agent this season. He was also the son-in-law of Steelers Hall of Fame QB Terry Bradshaw. 

Lori: Not only was Rob Bironas Terry Bradshaw's son-in-law, but he'd only just gotten married at the end of June this year. My heart goes out to both families.  

Me: Wow. Very sad. Okay, let's do the picks. Last week I got knocked to third place. Am I still there? How did we do? 

Jeff: The good news is after week 3 you are not in last place. Lori is going through the same thing we all did. She is having a sophomore slump, going 0-2. We both went 2-0 this week with all three of our teams winning. So right now I am in the lead with 12 points, Jason is in 2nd place with seven points and Lori has 5 points.  

Me: Yeah!

Lori: My record would be better if I wasn't being nagged to make my picks!!  

Me: Hahaha. Okay, this weeks picks... I say Colts will beat the Titans by 13 and Chargers will beat the Jags by 7. What do you two say? 

Jeff: My picks are Miami over Oakland by 7 points and Atlanta over Minnesota by 10 points. 

Lori: I pick Detroit over the Jets with 3 and New England over Kansas City by 1.  

Me: Good job, see ya next Thursday.

Jeff: See you next week.

Polly Bergen 
July 14th, 1930 — September 20th, 2014 
Polly wanna casket?

Way back in January and February I was showing you pieces from an artist named Steven Thomas who was supposed to be the 27th artist to be pheatured in the Phile's art gallery. Well, he still is, and will be a guest on the Phile finally next Thursday. Here is one of his pieces...

Again next Thursday Steven Thomas will be the guest on the Phile. He only had to wait eight months.

Okay, today's pheatured guest is a TV, film, & stage actor, host, singer and songwriter, and she's cute too. Please welcome to the Phile... Stephanie Pressman.

Me: Hello, Stephanie, welcome to the Phile. How are you? 

Stephanie: I'm exhausted & catching up on sleep. 

Me: You do a lot of interviewing yourself on red carpets and stuff, do you get interviewed often? 

Stephanie: No, normally I hate talking about myself. It's shocking right?! But, I've had these amazing projects I've created or been working on that I love so much so I want to talk about them & share them with the world. 

Me: Y'know, it's a small world... you interviewed Mark Cullen and Robb Cullen who created the TV show "Back in the Game". I work with their cousin Rich at Star Tours at Disney World. I have a screenshot of you interviewing them here...

Me: Weird, right? Have you ben to Disney World? Did you ever ride Star Tours? I know you are a geek like me so I am guessing yes. 

Stephanie: Yes, sure have... In both Orlando & Anaheim...though I never go on a trip to Endor & that hurts my soul... I love Ewoks! 

Me: Endor is boring... just trees. Haha. Anyway, you're from Atlanta, Georgia but now live in California... did you move to California to become an actress? 

Stephanie: Nope, well yes... it's a long story... I moved to L.A. twice before now. The first time I came to act. The second time I came to just enjoy and experience. This third time I came to seek independence. I had gone through a break-up and had friends moving out here and tagged along... I secured a job as a music teacher at a private school before I left and was not focused on acting. 

Me: Your mum was an actress, am I right? Did she give you any advice? 

Stephanie: My mom is really supportive and always has been. I've been acting professionally since I was a baby. She is my biggest fan and pushes me to do as much as I can. I couldn't be in the career I'm in without support it's super taxing and she is always there (3000 miles away) to Skype or FaceTime and read a script for an audition with me. She's amazing and I'm super lucky. 

Me: When did you move to California, Stephanie? A lot of TV shows are being produced in Atlanta all of a sudden it seems. Did you do any acting in Atlanta? 

Stephenie: In a few weeks I will celebrate my 10th anniversary of being in Los Angeles. I like to think I'm bi-coastal, I have an amazing group of agents in Atlanta that I adore and I send in taped auditions for everything filming there regularly. On occasion I book jobs and its great to get paid to work and spend time with my family & they are super excited too. Like I said my entire family is super supportive and get possibly more excited when I book jobs then I do. My aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, parents are all awesome cheerleaders. 

Me: How old were you when you started acting? You were very young, right? 

Stephanie: Since my mom acted she brought me in to auditions when I was still an infant. I have amazing memories as a child just having fun on set and in auditions. 

Me: When you told your parents you were moving to California what did they say? 

Stephanie: They've always been supportive. When I am home my dad leaves me newspaper clippings of all the TV shows and films currently filming in Atlanta... hinting I could move back home permanently. But overall they've always known I was a performer and they knew this is where I need to be. 

Me: Was it hard to settle in? 

Stephanie: L.A. takes two years to find good friends and five years to understand how the city works and the industry works. 

Me: I can't say you had a hard time finding work, because looking at your resume you do so much. You sing, write music, act, show up in videos, you have your own blog and a web series. Am I missing anything? 

Stephanie: I am creative I like doing creative things. In the last year or two I've been producing. I have a background in art and marketing though. I initially studied those areas in college. So, I do marketing and social media on a lot of friends projects. 

Me: Out of everything you do, what do you like to do the best? 

Stephanie: I can't choose...I love it all or I wouldn't do it. When I moved out here I made a promise to myself I would never do anything for money that I wouldn't do for free. I do love acting and hosting... in life my goal is pretty much to get paid to say things on camera, but my dream job would be a movie musical or a Joss Whedon musical. I'm a huge fan of Joss Whedon and his projects with music, "Once More With Feeling" & "Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog". 

Me: I downloaded your EP from iTunes and like it. Those are all original songs, right? 

Stephanie: Yes, those are all my songs that I wrote in 2004 or 2005, what seems like a lifetime ago. I have some newer stuff I wrote and recorded around 2009 but I've been mixing it for the last five years or so. Some day they will be released. 

Me: When did you start to sing, Stephanie? 

Stephanie: Wow, I always sang... I annoyed my family. I thought I was an opera singer. I loved Annie, Mary Poppins and Newies and I sang along. I sang in the choir at my synagogue I think starting when I was seven or eight. But I auditioned for my school choir and was placed in the city wide honor chorus when I was nine or ten and I think that's when my family and I realized I had any talent as a singer. I loved doing it but surprise someone actually wanted to listen. 

Me: Your EP came out a few years ago, are you planning another one? 

Stephanie: Like I said I've recorded and written new stuff... but music and acting are both twenty-four hour seven day a week careers unless I fall into a lot of money soon and can pay people to do half of what I do daily... so I can focus on both... it's a slow process. 

Me: You also play guitar... did you take guitar lessons or did you teach yourself? 

Stephanie: My middle school music teacher Ms. Shull was awesome she'd stay after school and teach a handful of students guitar technique it wasn't formal guitar lessons it was mostly jamming out with my best friends. One of which was on the first season of "The Voice" and continues traveling the country with her guitar singing her original songs. Her name is Rebecca Loebe you should definitely check her out. 

Me: Rebecca Loebe... I will, and see if she wants to be interviewed here. Are you proud of your EP? 

Stephanie: Um, yes and no. I'm proud of the songs I love those songs I also love the arrangements. I used to gig as a musician with some very talented musicians and we arranged the pieces over a period of two years playing them live together. I am not fond of the mix (because they aren't really mixed) and I would have retracked my vocals... meaning rerecorded my voice because I think those vocals were scratch tracks which means non permanent just for the purpose of recording instruments.

Me: You have appeared in a lot of TV shows... "House", "Castle", "ER"... so, you have been acting for awhile... did you start off doing small parts, extra work? 

Stephanie: Yeh, I think it's important to do everything on a set so you understand and appreciate it all. I look at extra or background work as a paid internship with free food. Plus if you are a union actor doing background it pays pretty well. 

Me: Do you have to audition for those parts? 

Stephanie: You don't have to audition to be an extra. Except in rare cases. 

Me: On "ER", which is one of my favorite shows of all time, you played a nurse. Did you just do one episode or a number of them? 

Stephanie: Just one episode. It was exciting, I was a fan of the show too. It was also the 300th episode so everyone was buying presents for the cast & crew it was pretty awesome. 

Me: Is there any TV show you wish you could be on? 

Stephanie: I obviously would love to be on all my favorite shows which include "Once Upon A Time", "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", "American Horror Story", "The Walking Dead", "Game of Thrones", "Downton Abbey", "Doctor Who", "Sherlock", "Big Bang Theory", "Constantine", and anything animated!!! 

Me: I mentioned you are a geek like myself. Are you into comics and sci-fi? 

Stephanie: Yup, my favorite comic lately has been "Batman 66"... I love the old TV show & grew up watching it & I also really like the new "Ms Marvel". As far as sci-fi I'm one of those people that is excited and supportive of the new Star Wars films and the "Star Wars Rebels" animated series. I am also excited for the new doctor on "Doctor Who" & I'm a big Clara fan. 

Me: What about cosplaying? Are you into that? 

Stephanie: I'm not a cosplayed... don't get me wrong I love wearing costumes... I just don't go to conventions and wear them. I'm typically working at conventions and I know people do both, it's just easier to wear a super cute nerdy dress and walk the floor than to be in a costume all day working. 

Me: Do you go to a lot of conventions? I know you were at San Diego Comic Con... I am planning to go next year. You hosted a panel at Comic Con, right? What was it about? 

Stephanie: Yeh, I get around to most conventions in the southwest and recently attended Wizard World Atlanta in my home town. My panel at SDCC was called "Spark your creativity, a call to action". It was amazing and I am just so proud. The panel featured seven amazing women who are actors and creators, writers and producers. Each woman deserves their own spotlight panel at Comic Con. We had Heidi Cox ("Stalking LeVar", "GeekSpeakTV"), Samantha Mason ("Fashionably Nerdy", "Legends of Atoll"), Helenna Santos ("Ms In The Biz", "The Infected"), Kristen Nedopak (The Geekie Awards, "The Skyrim Parodies"), America Young ("Geek Therapy", "The Chimaera Project") and Patty Jean Robinson ("Pike & Trident") 

Me: Ever been to MegaCon here in Orlando? 

Stephanie: No, but I'd love to.

Me: Do you get recognized when you're at cons? 

Stephanie: Sometimes... I mostly get "Hey, I follow you on Twitter or Instagram" or "I watch "Fashionably Nerdy" & I love it." The last one is my favorite.

Me: I know you have met a lot of different actors in you jobs... ever get star struck? 

Stephanie: I worked with Nathan Fillion for a week and just whispered "Balls" & "The Hammer is YOUR penis" to myself all week. Never actually had a single normal interaction with him. Oh, and I met Anthony Stewart Head (Giles from "Buffy") at a party recently and was pretty star struck. 

Me: If you can meet anybody and interview them who would it be? 

Stephanie: I don't know. There's a lot of people I respect or appreciate their talents. Maybe Kristen Bell, Ellen, Barak Obama, Felicia Day, Jared Leto, Bill Murray (or any Ghostbuster for that matter), JJ Abrams, Joss Whedon, George Lucas. 

Me: You have a blog called Struggles and Success... what was your biggest struggle and success? 

Stephanie: Oh, wow... everyday is a struggle working in an industry that is like pushing a heavy boulder up a hill... and everyday waking up and doing it all again and staying focused is my greatest success. 

Me: What made you write that blog, Stephanie? And what kinda advice do you give? 

Stephanie: I met people on set everyday with lots of questions and I answered the same questions over & over again... I realized I needed a place to send people to find all the answers, a solid resource for actors. 

Me: And you're a part of something called Get Reel. What is that exactly? 

Stephanie: Get Reel is a community of actors and industry folks trying to help each other propel forward... together. I initially started it cause I was frustrated and wanted good solid footage of myself for my acting demo reel I was sick of working for free or very little money with nothing to show for it. I wasted a lot of time and a lot of energy. So one day it clicked I know editors, I know directors, I know DPs (directors of photography... fancy talented camera people), I know writers, and I know talented actors. I should start a group where we make our own projects and help each other! A few years later... I have ample footage and Get Reel has about 1000 members... I try to keep it small.

Me: You have a web series called "Stalking LeVar". Is that LeVar Burton? I met him once when I was working at Epcot and he was an ass... trust me, you don't want to stalk him. Haha. Anyway, where did this idea come from and is LeVar aware of it? 

Stephanie: I came into this project to help out some friends and play a character... trust me, Susan is a character. But the idea came from the creators of the show who are amazingly talented nerd girls and love "Star Trek TNG" and "Reading Rainbow". They wanted to play quirky funny girls and they thought "what if we were two girls stalking a celebrity?"... LeVar seemed an obvious choice. At the time they chose him he was a little obscure and throughout the first season airing he has become a household name again due to his amazing, groundbreaking Kickstarter campaign for "Reading Rainbow". We met and interviewed him recently and he was lovely... he told us he loves our show and wants to be on it soon. His daughter, Mica is an actress and expressed her interest in appearing on the show too. The entire family seems very supportive of our show. 

Me: You are very creative and talented, Stephanie, have you always been like that? 

Stephanie: Wow, um... I was the child of an actor and started appearing in commercials and print ads as an infant before I could talk. So, the acting has always been there. I started singing when I could talk and never thought anything of it because I just loved doing it. Instruments started around eight years old. Visual arts have always been huge for me and I used to work as a graphic designer. So, I would say yes I've always been creative and artistic.

Me: You also take part in an improv group called Dungeon Master. How many people are part of this group and is it fun? I saw a picture of you with some kind of mask on with this group... I think I have it here...

Me: What was that about? 

Stephanie: Dungeon Master is this amazing troupe in Los Angeles where we do a crazy awesome show with about two actors and crew based on the fantasy role playing game, Dungeons and Dragons. We have a basic script for each episode of the show... it's a live theater experience but we call each show an episode because we have a seasonal overarching plot line and each episode is connected to the rest... but every show we take six audience volunteers on a quest and they encounter us portraying monsters and wizards, etc. It's so much fun we have huge dragon puppets that spit fire, we have amazing costumes and sets, we have dance numbers and songs and we have no idea what's going to happen because our party of volunteers have all the control as they are the stars of the show. It's a complete improv exercise for us that are members of the cast. 

Me: That sounds cool. What other kinda improv do you do? 

Stephanie: I do Dungeon Master, which is long form scripted. I am in The Show That Shall Not Be Named (Harry Potter Improv) which is story form... movie form improv, where we tell a complete story set in the world of JK Rowling's stories. Every now and then I get wrangled into some other more traditional short form improv groups and guest in their shows. 

Me: I read in your bio you have different skills... hula hooping, Israeli folk dancing... how did you get into that? Is your family from Israel? 

Stephanie: No. I watched the "Mickey Mouse Club" as a kid and they had trick hula hoopers on and I just picked up a hula hoop and started doing it. I think as adults we tell ourselves we can't do something. As kids we just do stuff and we pick up random skills. Rikudei Am (Israeli Dance) I picked up one summer at summer camp. I was a music teacher at a summer camp and my roommate at camp was a dancer and she taught me how to Israeli dance which is so much fun. It's community dancing and you do all choreographed moment in sync with hundred people it's pretty amazing. 

Me: And also fencing? Fencing? Really? That's so dangerous, Stephanie. How did you get into that sport? 

Stephanie: I'm not an expert swordsman but I went to a performing arts high school and we learned some sword play there and then as an adult I got a Groupon to a fencing school and took some lessons to expand and be more well rounded as a performer... it comes in handy with Dungeon Master, because we have fight scenes and fight choreography. 

Me: You do so much more than I do... I have this stupid little blog and I work at a Spaceport... Haha. Do you ever have any downtime? 

Stephanie: Too much... I get stir crazy when I'm not working. But I try to fill those days with adventures and exploring Los Angeles. 

Me: Two things I have to ask you about that you took part in... The Hannah Montana Movie, and a video for a song called "Big Boobies on Blondes Or Brunettes Or Redheads". First of, what was it like working with Miley Cyrus? That was before her crazy years, right? Was that a fun set to be on? 

Stephanie: She was so nice to everyone... the kindest person... I was surprised. Pretty sure she has it all figured out. The girl had a good head on her shoulders. Okay, "Big Boobies..."... my friends and I used to make comedy music videos... they would ask me to come in and sing or come in and just look fierce on camera and have a generally fun time on set. This song was fun because I sang on it and got to sing funny stuff. 

Me: And that "Boobies" video... I am trying to get the band Blaak Attaak on the Phile. That looked like a crazy video to be part of. How did you get to be a part of it? 

Stephanie: I used to host karaoke at bars and Blaak Attaak is comprised of other other karaoke DJ's and our friend whose a stand up comedian. We all worked for this awesome karaoke and entertainment company No1Betta and we started making funny songs together and crazy music videos. 

Me: You always look like you're having fun no matter what role or what you are doing, Stephanie. Am I right? 

Stephanie: I enjoy what I do... I love being a zombie or a dead body. I've never been a dead body. I enjoy playing... I chose a career that involves a lot of playing dress up... it has it's ups and downs and when I get to go to set and play its what I live for.

Me: Is there anything you did that you didn't enjoy? 

Stephanie: I've done some sketchy music videos. Music videos until recently were all non union so they had no regulations.

Me: Man, I can ask you a million more questions but I know you're a busy person. So, let's finish up... on the Phile I ask random questions thanks to Tabletopics. Here's yours... This is dumb. Would you go to war if you were drafted? 

Stephanie: I'm totally a hippie... I don't believe in killing or fighting or any sort of senseless violence or death... as humans we are given the honor to be able to communicate through words. I hate that so often we forget this precious gift, so, I would dodge the draft like nobodies business and I'd put daisies in the holes of guns. 

Me: Haha. Thanks sooooo much for being on the Phile. Go ahead and mention your websites, blog, and anything else you want to. Would you please come back on the Phile again, Stephanie? 

Me: Thanks so much, and next time you're in Orlando let me know, and I'll take you to Disney and show you around. Deal? 

Stephanie: Deal... we have already started planning because Diagon Alley was a week or two away from opening last time.

Whew! That about does it for this entry of the Phile. Thanks to Jeff Trelewicz, Lori Sedlacek and of course Stephanie Pressman. The Phile will be back tomorrow with Phile Alum Neil Sheasby, bass player for the band Stone Foundation. Spread the word, not the turd. Don't let snakes and alligators bite you. Bye, love you, bye.

Not if it pleases me. No, you can't stop me, not if it pleases me. - Graham Parker.
