11:27 am - Be a part of the Zero 1 Album!

** a reminder for some, and some revisions on the project :)

Hey everyone,

You know Hal Sparks's band Zero 1 is recording an album right now right?

**We are asking for people to submit shouting, screaming, yelling or whatever bits of audio emailed to us in a hi-res mp3 or Wav file format.

We only want positive things being yelled. Meaning, dont send us "fuck you" or "bush sucks" or something like that.

Imagine this is a call to arms with you being the army. Shout chant or just pretend you are at a live show. Just make it HIGH ENERGY! This audio will be placed in a specific part of one of the new songs!

Please make it a positive message of your choosing. Make it as audible or as inaudible as you wish. By submitting the audio to us, you agree to give us permission to use the sound bits on the album and those audio bits become the property of Zero 1. We will pick them randomly and will not reveal which ones we used.

Thanks in advance for your participation. The email address will go inactive as soon as have finished picking all the audio. So get them in as fast as possible.**

Send them to: albumaudio@zero1band.com

Be creative, make sure to save the file hi-res mp3 or Wav File, and send it in asap!

hey all,

wow.. when i said i would leave good time before i deleted this community.. i really meant it.. haha

If you all still don't know, The Hal Sparks Band changed their name to Zero 1 early last year. a new community was created on here by yours truly at that time, so sign on up over at zero1band.

The band has a music profile created at Myspace.. you can listen to them over there:
They all frequent the space, there are also a few songs on Hal's Official website, http://www.halsparks.com

I just wanted to post one more time to let you all know of the name change, and that i will delete the community shortly.

if there are any questions, feel free to leave me a comment, and i will try my best to answer them for you!

9:57 pm - Charity Auction!

Hey all,

Since i got a few extra issues of the one2one magazine with Hal on the cover, i have put them to good use. This past week, at the Queer as Fans Convention in Toronto, i donated two copies of it to the Charity Auction held there, they went for about $235 all together :) And Hal was there the next day to sign them for the winners :)

I have a third, that i asked Hal to sign for another Charity for me, and he did not hesitate to do so (such a wonderful guy).

So i placed the magazine up on ebay, which i am auctioning off for charity. Christine over at the Haloupies yahoo group has been collecting donations for Tsunami Relief, whatever this magazine gets in the auction, i will donate to that fund being donated by all Hal fans.

here's the link to the auction:

If you still would like to donate, please email me, and i will direct you how to do so, or talk to Christine over at the Haloupies group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/haloupies)

thanks very much everyone!

Just wanted to remind every one here on my little group that Hal is going to be on an episode of Dr. Vegas this coming Friday, October 22nd.
It is on CBS, and its on at 8 my time(mountain time, could also be messed up by the fact that i have satellite as well), but check your local listings for the correct time in your area!

Hal was at the 2004 Los Angeles Aids walk last Sunday, if you'd like to see some pictures, head over to www.hal-sparks.net she has a bunch of them up there from wire image (i believe).
The team Hal's Harem, who walked in the walk last sunday, were asked to come and take a photo with him after opening ceremonies, and one of them has been posted at the Lair(http://www.halslair.com), as well as at the yahoo group, haloupies (http://group.yahoo.com/groups/haloupies).

Also, coming up next week in Los Angeles, Robert Hall's movie, is having its LA premiere on the 27th. If you are in the LA area, i highly suggest you head out for the premiere, i don't know if Rob will be there or not (i'm sure if he's in town he will be), but if he is you can give him praise for the wonderful movie. I have seen it, and trust me, its amazing, and worth going out to see.
For more info, and to get tickets go here: http://www.acteva.com/booking.cfm?bevaID=68068

Have a good one,

Hey Everyone,

Upcoming this sunday, there is a walk in Los Angeles happening to raise money for Aids research.

I have a group of friends who are walking in the event, and within only a couple weeks have managed to raise over $1800 in donations.

I would like to help them get to $2000 before they walk Sunday, and donations can continue to go in until November 10th.

If you can make, any sort of contibution, of any amount.. please click here to head to the team's official info/donation page.

They are walking in honor of Hal Sparks, who after we spent a weekend with, has inspired us to do more good things in our lives, which is why they are walking in his Honor and the team is called Hal's Harem. Hal is also going to be at the walk, along with many famous faces including Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), Doris Roberts (everybody loves raymond) and Nia Vardalos (my big fat greek wedding).

thanks everyone,

2:45 pm - Sparksvision!

Hey everyone,

Just a random Hal post here, those who are going to SparksVision this upcoming weekend, i just wanted to ask.. is anyone as excited as i am? haha

I've never been to LA before, and i've never Met Hal before either, and i get to meet all these cool people from all over the place, i think its going to be incredible.

Also another question for people going, those who are leaving on the 14th, is any one going to be around till later in the day? My flight isn't till 6 something, so i won't be heading to the airport till around 3 that afternoon, and it seems everyone is gone first thing in the morning that day.. haha

anyways, enough of my ramblings.. lol laters
