Friends, I haven’t forgotten you. I was at M Street Coffee last Friday with my new co-working groupmate, Angela. I couldn’t get an outlet for my laptop b/c the two dorks behind me used both of them. (Rude, much?) So I ended up writing out my blog posts re: SoMe 101 workshop. Apologies for taking so long for answering you.
As you already know, I’m looking for a new template that can help me reorganize my Twitterfeed posts. They’re a bit annoying if you’re looking for the blog and only getting the Tweets. Work in progress…
Over the last couple of weeks, it’s been a bit hectic. What else is new? Here’s what else I’ve been up to:
- Won tickets to The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien
- Attended several TV panels at Hollywood & Highland
- Sons of Anarchy and The Shield
- Battlestar Galactica and the UN reps on human rights
- Red carpet screening of THE HURT LOCKER and Q&A with the director and cast
- A slight case of vertigo
- Visiting babies
- Guide Dogs of America open house
- AWAY WE GO
Highly recommend all these films! Spend your $10 on one of these: Away We Go; The Brothers Bloom; Rudo y Cursi; Moon; and The Hurt Locker.
BSG & UN panel
Living in LA is great. There are a lot of people who like to bash my town. (Personally, I think those people are the ones who: 1. don’t know how to drive and 2. are transplants.) If you dislike LA so much, leave. It’s as simple as that.
One of the benefits of living in the city where a lot of shows are made is the Paleyfest. This is an annual showcase of shows that (I guess) catches the eyes of the Paley Center. I don’t know why The Hills (WTF!!!) would be on, unless they chose it to be their fake show event. Anyway, this year’s events include: It’s Always Sunny; True Blood; BSG/Caprica; Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog; Fringe; and Dollhouse among others. They have the casts and crew of these shows on a Q&A panel where the public is invited to hear about their shows, watch a screening, ask questions, et al.
I picked up tickets for the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia panel as a surprise anni gift for The Hubs. And I enjoyed it just as much. The cast was hysterical and you could see they enjoyed each other’s company. Kaitlin (Sweet Dee) and gang ripped on Matchbox 20 when someone asked them about Rob Thomas guesting on an ep. Danny Devito was insane; wasn’t sure if he was high or just nervous… There was a running joke about throwing the show into higher gear, higher flames, turning up the stove, and so on. The new season shoots in May and one of the eps will have to do with the economy (old poor vs. new poor) – haha!!
The moderator, though, was horrible. He was so bland and didn’t play off any of the cast’s stories or replies. I can’t remember his name but I do remember he works for TV Guide. Ugh. He did nothing to move the panel along. He was so boring.
I enjoyed this experience. It was at the Arclight Hollywood and there was plenty of seating. I felt the other fans were pretty nice; no pushing or shoving. Everyone helped everyone else with taking pictures and “keeping” a line to each star. That’s the way it should be!
