TheRarestPatriot On December - 28 - 2009

I thought some of you might get a kick out of seeing my publicity photo call sheet whilst on the set of Nashville’s Tough Trade a week or so ago.

Yes, that’s me in the infamous, non-speaking role of  Nashville music producer Vernon Scott. LOL….

1st time in my life wearing a cowboy hat and bolo (?) tie….My fake, on-set date,  lady-friend said the look ‘suited me’….Haha~

(ummmm….is my fly down?…..oh geez….)

I kept the hat and the tie….LOL~

    Now I’m terrified MGM/VIACOM is going to call me back for a recurring role on Tough Trade!
    No one here will speak to me again!…LMAO~
    But remember, my character is a sleazy Nashville music producer after all…I thought I nailed the fake, cowboy-wannabe, smarmy ‘industry’ guy….LOL~

    (..although I am pleased that BD Mom considers me a ‘young fool’…LOL)

    …no offense taken from anyone here at all…no worries. Heck, I’M the one that had to play dress up!…haha~
    Hmmm,…I’ll keep my teeth and I run from all things Confederate.

    Okay, let me set the record straight, being from Arizona and all.
    You’re not a cowboy, but wearing ‘western attire.’
    There is a difference.
    Heck, my husband wears a cowboy hat, shit-kicking boots, and bola ties at times, but not so much anymore since he retired.
    And we are rock-and-rollers, AC/DC, Dylan lovers, and not hicks, then again, maybe we are considering the area we live.
    There’s folks up here where we call home, whereby the dress code is ZZ-Top beards, missing teeth, Harleys, and Confederate Flags, and I kid you not.
    We’re smack dab in the middle of redneck, yee-haw country, where nearly every neighbor quotes Glenn Beck, O’Reilly and Hannity.
    You should have seen the year we placed a Kerry/Edwards sign in our yard, and that was something, but now our neighbors know that we’re commie libs, yet we’re still friends.

    • TheRarestPatriot says:

      Yep, well…here in the VERY Red (neck) state of Tennessee there seems to be a very odd, real and palpable difference in the caste system of ruralia. (I made a new word!)
      There aren’t ‘cowboys’ here per se, as much as there are country ‘farmers’. The actual cow punchers here would actually punch YOU if you referred to them as farmers. Funny~
      As I mentioned, I DO NOT or have not EVER dressed in this manner. My profile pic IS me….my personality….or what I call, Tuesday. This was a movie set and I had a ball. In fact, had I dressed like this picture above, I prolly would have had a larger photo studio client list….LOL~
      But seriously, I think I could rock this look for business purposes….LMAO~ Now I just need the shit-kickers….LOL~

      • javaz says:

        Cowboy boots with pointy toes and the top portion MUST be snakeskin.
        Nothing like your boots shedding skin to make a statement.
        Oh, you also need an old pickup truck or Harley, and you must have the back of your leather jacket stitched with a Confederate Flag, and if you don’t ride, you must display a Confederate Flag somewhere on your property.
        Oh yeah, and you have to part with a tooth or two and grow a really long beard, and have gross, greasy hair that you wear in a ponytail.

    I, too, like your old pic. Makes you look a little like a :bad(good)guy LOL. I like the bad boy look, although my husband is as clean cut as they come LOL.

    • TheRarestPatriot says:

      Oh trust me….still a bad (good) guy. I’m just no longer attractive to:

      1 -- Employers
      2 -- Good, sweet, intelligent women
      3 -- Store clerks
      4 -- Extreme left wing progressives (due to dressing like a cowboy)

  5. TheRarestPatriot says:

    Haha~ Well, some were curious about how they ‘gussied me up’ for the shoot. And trust me, there is NO ONE more disgusted by illiterate, country-bumpkins than me. I have always been, am now and will forever be anti-establishment. LOL~ I was a punk in the 80s and am a middle aged punk now. However, I have justified my ‘cowboy’ experience as an ‘insider F-You’ to all things country….Haha~
    If it’s any comfort, I DID deprive a TRUE country bumpkin of its chance to appear on television…LOL~

    Mornin’, TRP!

    Nope, I like your other picture much better! I have a thing about “fake” cowboys who wouldn’t know which end of the cow to milk! We have lots of those around these parts.

    I don’t know if this will make any sense to you, but I have always had an aversion to all things “cowboy”. I can’t stand country music or square dancing. We used to have to do it in school and I hated it!! Although born and raised in the south, I tried to put as much distance as I could between myself and the perception that we are a bunch of uneducated dunces who can’t speak the King’s English, cowboys included. It’s that stereotype of the semi-literate country bumpkin that I despise! And sir, you are NO country bumpkin!!

    Loved your poetry yesterday!! I did log on to the website you provided and the book looks wonderful! You should definitely be compensated for your work! But if my vote counts, keep the old picture! :-)

    • TheRarestPatriot says:

      I certainly will keep the old picture. I would never wish to be associated with the semi-literate ANYTHING crowd…LOL~

      • Emerald1943 says:

        Hey TRP! I hope you didn’t take my comment as snarky! It certainly was not meant that way! It’s just that association with the kind of people that SERIOUSLY wear shit-kicker boots and chew tobacco! Yuk!! I’m talking about the same kind of people that javaz is referring to. I know you are not in the least like that!!!
