My aunts still try to fatten me up.
I make appearance at local park and recreation agencies when the program starts, when they have the qualifying meets at the local levels. Then I try to go to the regional competitions, and of course I'm there in Hershey, Pa., in August for the North American final.
I don't try and be competitive with auditions. When I go on one, I kind of just forget about it.
I treat auditions as if they are gold. I try to make every one count.
I was still auditioning when I was in college, but I wasn't really giving it the old college try. I was giving college the old college try.
Whenever you hear somebody else is auditioning for something, you sort of assume they're going to get it. You should try to just ignore it.
Well, I'll keep on auditioning and one day maybe I'll go to LA and try out for films there.
You can never fight for a part or can't beg them to do another audition. You can try, but that rarely works.
Just do what makes you happy and try. Just go out and audition.
I try to address my audiences intelligently. The man in the street counts, but sometimes he forgets that he counts.
Audiences like to be challenged and to be actively involved and try to guess an outcome.
I listen to the audience and try and bounce with them. All audiences are different. But they are all homo sapiens.
I write about what interests me. It's very dangerous when you try to satisfy an audience.
I don't try to communicate with my 'audience'. I don't bother with that any more. I used to try to have conversations with people, but it's futile.
I'm the know-nothing. I'm curious, I try to be entertaining, I try to translate the techno jargon, but in the end I'm the audience's representative.
I try and create for the audience something that relates to real-life experience.
I try not to think too much about what the audience is thinking and what they think I should do.
I never try and do the same show, ever. The audience controls the dynamic of the shows. Sometimes they listen, and sometimes they ask a million questions.
I respect the audience's intelligence a lot, and that's why I don't try to go for the lowest common denominator.
It's only when we have nothing else to hold onto that we're willing to try something very audacious and scary.
