I just got a call from a woman that works at a big newspaper company that saw my artwork and now wants to do a phone interview with me about me being an artist, my artwork, my processes, inspirations and everything & publish an article about me.
I feel famous or something. I can’t believe it! :D
I am so excited.
maybe my artist dreams aren’t so crazy afterall :)
My friend's epic story of how she picked up Duran Duran from the airport
“ First of all…..FAVORITE band ever! This was during the tour for Big Thing and the record rep came by the office to touch base that day to finalize stuff for the radio interview later that day (this was when musicians regularly came by stations doing PR) and he mentioned he had to pick them up at the airport that day and he asked me if I wanted to go with. My boss being awesome said I could go. SO….off to Tampa Airport and we are waiting at the gate (when you could still meet people right off the plane) and there were girls already waiting there that had been following them around.
Eventually people start getting off the plane and finally I see them and got a little nervous and as they came over to us Simon came right up to me and started talking to me like we were old friends ( even better since he’s my favorite) He asked how I liked the album and I told him I was in love with Too Late Marlene and he was pleasantly surprised. We chatted a bt more and then we headed out and as we were leaving I mentioned that I wished I had my camera with me for a pic since I knew it would be crazy at the show that night….and this is where it gets better! He STOPS one of the fangirls and asks her to take OUR picture and would she send it to me!!!!! So we pose for a few pics and I gave her my info but she NEVER sent me one. I don’t have the proof from that day but I do have the memory! LOL.
Then it was time to leave for the interview and the band took turns doing them and that was Nick’s day….here’s the best part…. Our afternoon jock was at a remote broadcast from a car dealership that day from the back of Monster Truck Bigfoot and Nick did the interview from the back of a monster truck! LOL Of all the guys int he band, Nick had to do that but he was a trooper, I rode in the limo with him to the interview and as nice as he was I was a little intimidated because he was so pretty and proper!
Simon’s personality is a lot more frivolous. I have pics of Nick in the monster truck I will have to dig out. ALso, John is one of the NICEST people I have ever met. I”ve met him at a Power Station show and two DD shows. I love them all….”
PS LOL Nick Rhodes in a monster truck! I can’t wait for the pics xD I would have been intimidated by how pretty he was too. what a lucky duck.
I want to build a mod club where all you play is 60’s rock and beat music and dance like you are having multiple epileptic seizures and only those who look like they’ve time traveled from the 60’s may enter the club, all others are not allowed and everyone shows up on a moped
Do friends ever want to be more than friends just because you're kind to them?
This is a tricky one for me because what I’m going to say probably isn’t going to sound "kind" lol. I don’t know how else to describe it because it is something I have always struggled with.
But YES!. EVERY single male friend (and I literally mean EVERY single male friend)I have ever had or met has had a romantic interest in me. Also guys that I JUST met will also show romantic interest moments after just meeting me. Asking me out on a date, relationship etc.
Plus I am very oblivious with the added bonus of being aromantic (a person who experiences little or no romantic attraction to others.) so I usually don’t pick up on these clues until it is explicitly stated to me.
Me being nice isn’t flirting. I am just genuinely kind, conciderate to everyone, especially my friends! I have endless platonic love for everyone! lol it’s just my nature.
Which is why sometimes now I am awkward around my guy friends because I think I am having a great platonic friendship and then they drop this bomb on me almost every time in the past. I am very cautious & act weird now which is TERRIBLE. I avoid hanging out with my guy friends alone in fear that they are trying to romantically get with me. When I go out I only go out with a big group of friends to shield me from advances. It’s like a paranoia which isn’t healthy. It’s because I have had terrible & sometimes tramautizing experiences in regards to this. I have lost some guy friends to this delimia. Once they couldn’t get any romantic interest in return they would not be my friend anymore or it ruined the friendship afterwards. That would hurt me more than anything. They would even completely disregard my romantic orientation by saying “I need to try it” or “you just haven’t found the right guy”. Yes I know my romantic orientation (or lack of one) in being aromantic isn’t well known but it is as legit and real as every other sexual/romantic orientation. I can’t change.
I don’t mind if people do have romantic interest in me, because although I haven’t experienced it myself I understand that it is something you cannot control, just like I cannot control not feeling romantic feelings. In fact I’d rather them feel comfortable enough to tell me, just respect my aromantic orientation and we can still be friends.
I am sure it is awkward for everyone if this has ever happened but also being aromantic it is completely confusing & sometimes fustrating. I don’t know how to handle it without coming off as mean, selfish or uncaring.
I guess it is just the struggle of being an aromantic in a amatonormativity society. sigh.
If I ever get a girlfriend. I hope she's as cool as you.
wow I am very flattered! thank you lol :)
But if I am going to be competely honest I don’t think you would truly want an aromantic “girlfriend” lol that would not be a good or healthy combination xD. I hope that you never develop romantic feelings for an aromantic because that would end in tragedy for both parties. I wish you well & luck with someone who shares your romantic orientation/interests! lol.
but if you mean my personality is cool and you would want a romantic relationship with someone as ‘cool as me’ then I am beyond flattered. again thanks!
I really appreciate the sentiment, even if I don’t personally experience the concepts of romantic feelings/relationships lol I am touched :)
a-r-t-i-s-t said: I’ve been looking for it, but I did not see it from you, it may have been on YouTube, but I almost want to say Rolling Stone commented about, those are the two places I’m frequently visiting. You ARE internet famous! : )
OMG really?! lol :D
Well the video isn’t mine. and I just gif-ed from that video so I can’t take too much credit if it did. Which part went viral? my actual concert review, the gif or the video?
a-r-t-i-s-t said: OMG!!!! I saw that somewhere else, this actually went viral I think!
…I think It was me reposting & reblogging all about it forever on my blog not really actually going viral lol If anything I think I made it viral myself and spammed the morrissey tag haha I am sorry everyone xD I was just so happy I’m still fangirling about it to this day. oopsie…
I got ridiculously lucky & saw him live at Mahaffey Theater this year in st. pete FL May 30! like 5 days before he cancelled the tour. It was my FIRST Morrissey show too! :D
I got up front row, put my hand out & as he came over (while singing “Hand in Glove” no less) and he made a mini performance of singing "So stay on my arm you little charmer" while looking straight at me and reaching out and holding my hand for a few moments. lol *dead* ❤
I have only found one “ok-ish” quality video on youtube so far from it. you can’t see it the whole time so it looks shorter because there are heads in the way but this video starting at 2:53 you can see him hold my hand for a brief moment Here
