It’s Me Just Be Ready

 Hi everybody,

I just wanted to give u some background on me, at least a lil bit.  As I sit here attempting, where to start.

So I will start here, I have a vivid imagination and have always felt the draw of the entertainment biz.  Because my grandmother worked as a private nurse for those in the biz such as Howard Hughes who would pay her phone bill way back in the day and then it was a $1.00, wow if they could be like that now,,,lol.  Later for Marilyn Monroe, there are stories there she told me but nothing ever negative about anyone.  Patty Duke, Angela Lansbury, Sammy Davis, Connie Stevens, Connie Francis.  These are the faces that I saw on a regular basis as very young child.  My mom working for a designer making clothes for the Supremes, Temptations, Four Tops and Disney on Parade also the Ice Capades, which both of these they were the beautiful dresses, outfits with lights,,,wow and when they would go up we had tickets to go see them I felt like the luckiest kid.  For those that remember the well known fashion designer Mr. Blackwell who was the 1st that put out the Best and Worst Dressed List before Joan Rivers though I am in no way cutting Joan.  He would give mom a dress every blue moon,,,they were hand beaded gowns beautiful, and my mom and aunt beautiful women too.   My dad knew O.C. Smith singer, Dick Bass football player and other actors I can’t even think of at the time and my uncle was best friends with Miles Davis.  Then our cousin which I call uncle, Don Marshall who was one of the co-stars of Land of the Giants who yrs ago dated Diane Carroll and also Jamal Wilkes former Laker basketball player.  I went to elementary school with Greg Morris from the original Mission Impossible his kids Iona, Phillip and Linda and Dick Bass’s son Ricky and there were others.   As a child my family was acquainted with Lena Horne, later while she was performing in the play Pal Joey in San Diego was able to reacquaint myself with her reminding her who I was when I was a child and who my parents were.  She was the best and I will never forget her.  But I say all this to give u some idea as to my connection to the biz.  No wonder I had a draw to the biz and wanna be involved.

I was raised in Los Angeles then Palm Springs and finally San Diego, which I consider home.  I’ve modeled and was a dancer and am an actor, writer, stand-up comedian and producer.  I went to highschool with Annette Bening Oscar Winner and Brian Mitchell Tony Award Winner.

Bottom line I had a good up bringing and was told by my father I will never forget, “If u want respect u give respect”.  That has never left me as well as get a degree because no one can ever take that piece of paper nor the education away from u.  And to get the same job the white man has u gotta work twice as hard so get that paper. So I worked hard for the 3 degrees that I have and proud of myself for them as he was the only child of his mother’s to receive a degree and I was the 1st of my siblings to do the same.  Through my life I have always spoke my mind said what I felt and was very honest about things.  So in saying that u have heard the saying don’t ask for what u don’t want the true answer to, because I will be straight up ,,, tell no lies, pull no punches, lay cards on the table and it is what it is.

So in saying this I’m just giving somewhat as brief a background as I believe gives some of me because u just never know what’s gonna come out of my mouth or the fingers type on the keys.  This space is where u will be able to read pieces from the books I have written which I self published the 1st but looking for a publisher to do the others,,,while reading some of my work plzzz feel free to comment, ask questions.  I’m glad to finally do this as it has been something I have wanted to do for sometime.

Plzzz enjoy what u read hopefully u will feel enlightened even educated on something u may have thought about but didn’t go far with,,,now maybe u will.  Finally not only do I like me, even with my faults, but I love me.  I hope that if u don’t love self that one day u will as I do myself.  And do your best to deal with positive energy and folks striving to make something of themselves ,,,hell we can all sit around doing nothing but sure ain’t gonna get u nowhere.  I also thank God my higher power for allowing me to have been birthed from my parents and having an up bringing which taught me home training.

Anyway, continue being blessed

Davyd McCoy
