People are Mean on the Internet

Here are some comments on my last YTC video:

Unusually bad video, and that's saying something on youtube. The host is just annoying with the affected expressions and hand gestures. I get it, somebody in a broadcast journalism class probably told her to be upbeat. Upbeat's good. Over the top and unnatural is annoying. Love DMB and Mraz, though.

this woman is an idiot. 

fuckin DAYVE MATTHEWS 

the weed smoke.

wow, that guy was hammered.

*******************************************************************************
At least these are somewhat "constructive."  The last heartbreaking comments that stick out were from the Backstreet Boys concert, which attacked my "ugly nose" and "skanky dress."  This too will pass like those comments, but I realize that this is why I never fully pursued acting or singing.  I lose sleep over some dream crushers comment.  

I  am going to take the advice about my hand movements.  I've got a lot of musical theatre in me.  JAZZ HANDS!!! As for the facial expressions, I'm a pretty animated person and I might look even more "unnatural" if I try to stop those.  :) But really, YTC is about concerts  and the energy and excitement of the audience.  I was excited to be going to this show...how can I hide that?  And should I?

I just don't know why people have to be so mean about their comments.  People diss on the people we interview, most of the time not even on what they have to say...just their looks and personality.  

The person that said the first comment about me hadn't logged in for over a month on YouTube.  He/She was so annoyed by me that he felt the need to sign in and bash my efforts...in a really mean way.  Why?

On top of everything, that person is a Dave Matthews fan.  Why did this person waste all his/her time on insulting my 1 minute intro instead of commenting with their DMB concert experiences or his/her love for the music?

Obviously, the commenter wins.  I have spent too much time obsessing over it.  Vent complete.

Actually, when I think about it, this whole post is pretty contradictory, due to my post of that hipster site the other day.   That's something to ponder.

Busy Week!

It's been a cool week. I got a last minute confirmation to cover Katy Perry! It was a blast.


Last night, we went to a benefit for a local label guy who lost his house (and almost his life) in the tornado last week. My new boyfriend played. I call him "Country Guy." His real name is Jason Michael Carroll.



Tonight, I'm covering the Rites of Spring with Q-Tip, Santigold, and T.I.

Tomorrow - Duff McKagan's Loaded! So much going on!

The Weekend

My husband rocked it out on Friday night at The End!

On Saturday, I watched hours of "The United States of Tara." Quite Funny!

And yesterday, we celebrated a fabulous Easter with friends. I wonder if Bret Michaels was the main subject of everyone's Easter. The anticipation of the Rock of Love finale was too much for this girl to handle.

I may not have been dead on with my prediction, but at least Taya was in my top three. See January 4th post for confirmation.

Did Kanye Really Write This?

In response to South Park's mockery of Kanye:





We ask ourselves. Did Kanye really write this? For some reason, I don't think Kayne would use the word "douche."

From Kanye's Blog:
SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT'S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF "I TOLD YOU SO!!!" IT'S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU'RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE'S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I'M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I'M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I'M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I'M SURE THERE'S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS... THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW IT'S ME!

As I always say: "You know you've made it once South Park makes fun of you."

Seriously...WTF?


This weekend I received letters from two of my credit cards saying that they are increasing my APR. But, don't worry...I don't have to agree to the increase. I have the option to pay off the card in full. Good heavens! As they say....it is, what it is.

Fast Food is Fun!

Back in the day, McDonald's created a Menu Song. It was really fast and fun, and there was a contest to go along with it. We received a record (yes, an album - a 45) with the Sunday paper. If you played the album, the actor on "Just the 10 of us" walks a class through singing the McDonalds menu song. If the class made it all the way through on your record - you would win money. Awesome!



This is the actual song:

And I memorized it:

You can dress a sauce packet on the Taco Bell site now. This is my sauce packet depiction of my friend Jennifer Quiroz.








Seriously, It would be so rad to be able to tell people that you are responsible for writing the witty phrases on Taco Bell Sauce Packets.

Help! I can't tell where I am. It's dark and I can hear laughing.
I'm taking the day off. See next packet.
At night the sporks pick on me.
I'm in good hands now.
This space for rent. Inquire within.
Will you scratch my back?
Can I drive?
How many of these do you already have in your glove compartment?
Polly want a taco?
The road to mediocrity is littered with empty ketchup packets.
Mild sauce...the new ketchup.
The official sauce of Taco Bell.
Live life one sauce packet at a time.
Warning! You're about to make a taco very happy.
Nice palm. I read a great deal of pleasure in your future.
My sauce is a honor student at Taco State.
I'm just doing this between films.
Open quickly...I'm burning up in here.
If you throw this, would it be a flying saucer?
Willing to relocate.
Will you marry me?
Why order a taco when you can ask it politely?
When I grow up, I want to be a waterbed.
Be gentle.
My other taco is a Chalupa.
Save a bun. Eat a taco.
Single hot sauce seeking friendship, maybe more.
Not to be used as a floatation device
....Tails.
You had me at taco.
Do you add sauce left to right, or right to left?
IM A HOT T R U 2?
Use your stomach, not your mind.
