Do you remember when Madonna told David Lettermanshe's never eaten pizza...sorry - never eaten "in a New York pizzeria"? Well, my very own Nancy Drew (also known as Aaron) hip me to the fact that she has and there's photographic proof. See it after the jump and keep in in mind that it may not be safe for work...
After the shit-show night I had last night, it was nice to wake up to this from my friend Aaron. Kind of inspiring seeing someone as famous as Madonna before she became "Madonna". It was filmed at Danceteria and I love that after the performance the host, Haoui Mantaug, says, "That's Madonna. That's Everybody, and you'll be hearing it a lot." If he only knew...
This are two of the pics that I took last night at Earl's Wiener Shack. It's of two of the dancers who's names change weekly. This week, because of the theme, they became Cletus and Otis Ray. The night was fun - lots of cute guys and amazing numbers by the dancers . Kinda has the feeling of the club from Flashdance because the dancers do full, thought-out numbers. Let's just say suits, sesame oil, glitter, fangs, fake blood, and jockstraps came into play at some point during those numbers...
Warning: Numerous douchebag alert. I mean...really?
UPDATE: The video has been deemed "private" by said douchebags. I totally understand that they don't want the world watching them dance around shirtless, trying to act sexy. They're gonna leave that to the muscle gays...
I left a wedding yesterday in the best of moods - I was charged after seeing 2 people who truly love each other having the most amazing day. These two people decided at some point in their relationship that they were not only going to act upon the feelings they had for each other, but jump into the unknown - a frightening thing to do, but one that people take all the time. I mean, how bad can it be? And so far, it's worked for them.
That's not to say they won't disagree on things, or fight, or dislike each other to the point of wanting the other to disappear off the face of the earth, but they have a want inside them that keeps them fighting to stay together. If they didn't care what happened to the other, they wouldn't be with each other any longer. These two people want to be with each other.
After working on this for the past 2 days, I'm putting up a test run of my website for your consideration. Remember, this is a test, it is only a test. Just wanna get feedback before I start REALLY getting the whole thing off the ground.
Methinks it's important to have a main website that I can do all my shenanigans from, so I am building aaronelvis.com today that will include my skills as an actor (resume, acting reel, voice-over reel), DJ (resume, schedule, downloads, pics), and blogger (what you're reading right now.
If you have not yet done so, make sure you watch Wanda Syke's Ima Be Me on HBO. She's frikkin' genius and has me LOL - literally. She's seriously one of the funniest comics out there and I can't wait to see her new talk show.
I woke up with a clear mind and a renewed sense of self. I will not let fear get in my way. And, you're right, it's fear of failure, not fear success. Even admitting it feels like a failure...but admitting it is the first step. You gotta face your fears. (Video by the talented Daniel Robinson)
My brain is so full right now and I go between excitement to being scared shitless in mere seconds. Between the upcoming move, getting/losing jobs this holiday season, friendships new and old...I don't know whether to smile or cry. Usually it's been the latter.
I'm trying to find a way to just stay calm and not let my emotions get the best of me and to think positively, but it's tough. I'm doing it - just not as much as I'd like. It's usually the silences that kill me, because my brain automatically goes to the dark place. Working through that as I write this now. Multitasking.
I really need a single job that I can focus on so that all the incidentals, such as various DJ gigs and scrambling to make ends meet, just fall away. It's all about the single focus.
I think I just need to be held for an hour once a week to make the worries melt away and to bring calm into my world. That's not much to ask. Can someone make that happen, please?
While Lady Gaga was was rockin' on SNL this weekend (EXCEPT for the lame skit with Madonna - who's writing for that show now?? Clearly talentless amateurs...but I digress), my brain goes to Miranda doing her cover of the Gaga classic. Here it is - watch and suck it haters!
Here I am, thousands of feet above the U.S. typing away on my computer - blogging. This on-board WiFi kinda rocks. My Macbook, however, is acting kinda strange. The trackpad is all wonky and I'm wondering if it's the gravity playing tricks with it, or what. I feel like this mo-fo is possessed or something.
Mayhaps I shouldn't be typing on this, OR mayhaps I should restart the computer.
Maybe it's because I have Jack Lalanne on this flight, but I doubt it.
UPDATE: So I restarted my computer and it helped, slightly. The trackpad is definitely gone wonky and I'm definitely assuming it's from the air cabin pressure.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
I'm about to watch my stories from ABC last night - fingers crossed it'll work. Love that I can watch from high above Iowa. Then Nebraska. Then Colorado. A great state, that Colorado...
