My name is Robert Salazar and I'm an actor, musician, and sometimes provider of other creative services like production design, writing, and teaching.
When I was 18 my big sister took me to a live taping of the Colbert Report. During a commercial break, they played "Holland, 1945" and this surprised me. I was excited to hear such an out there song surrounding the show and started bopping along. Colbert spotted me in the crowd, and started mouthing the words with me. Here was my hero and me singing along, a dream. During the "And now we ride the circus wheel," part, he motioned an invisible wheel spinning, all singing and maintaining eye contact with me, then went back to his preparation. I've been thinking of that moment a lot lately.
So I'm riding the circus wheel. I star in the novella Los Secretos de Santa Monica, which implicitly teaches my fellow Latinos about community building - we just got a large standing ovation in Phoenix, AZ! I've been in some odd commercials. I've worked on some wild film sets. I play in a bunch of bands and release music as Boo Baby. I sometimes write for Paste Magazine. In the past, I was a paid intern for the Howard Stern Show. This website's got all the info.
