Flu Shots

So my dad bugged me about it, so I went and got a free flu shot last week at Actors Equity. I was also in line next to Dylan Baker, and all I could think was, "You were in Spider Man! You can't afford your own flu shot?" But he was so good in "Happiness," I let it slide. Anyway, for those who need them, here's the info on the free shots through the Actors Fund and MusiCares, a great organization that helps musicians, run by a terrific lady named DeeDee Acquisto.


MusiCares, in conjunction with The Actor’s Fund’s Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic, North General Hospital, and the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention will be sponsoring a Health Fair for musicians, music industry professionals and all entertainment industry professionals. Free services available at the health fair include:

• Flu shots
• Glucose testing
• Blood pressure screening
• Cholesterol testing
• Hepatitis C screening
• Alexander technique consultations
• Chiropractic consultations
• Health Insurance Information

The fair will take place on Thursday, November 20th from 1:00pm to 5:00pm at the Aurora, 475 West 57th Street, 2nd Floor Community Room, New York, NY 10019. No appointment is necessary.

Your flu shot experience really did make me LOL.
Dylan lives in our building, which you affectionately refer to as "The Actors' Gulag", and oft times as I share the lift with him I think to myself: You were in Spiderman 1 AND 2 (presumably receiving a nice pay hike for the latter) and you can't give up your artist-subsidized apartment for some poor schmuck who's just starting out?
Nevertheless, "Happiness" is one of my all-time favorites and he's a swell guy. In fact, he was very receptive when I cornered him on one of our rides together, asking what it was like playing suck a whack-a-doodle. He was also quite forthcoming with some juicy Todd Solondz tidbits!

He's a fellow W&M alum, and I've never heard anything but nice things about him from folks. You must tell me the good Solondz stories when I next see you.

Todd's just the tip of the iceberg and I'm sure I could hit him up for some other celeb info. Dylan seems...bendable.
