So that was a jam packed crazy weekend, I tell you. I’m still nursing this month long weird sickness thing, so I decided not to run, even the the Dallas Rock N Roll Half Marathon was a week away. Due to this bug I haven’t been able to train properly for weeks, so I figure I’ll just not care about times and just have fun with it. But even without the running or going to the gym, I still got a workout! That’s cause I was lugging around video equipment as we shot a crap TON of footage for some videos we’re making with the great Flula Borg!!!!
Like our dope videos or we will fight you…in a non violent way.
Firsty off, you should know that this weekend was also St. Pats and my birthday weekend. So it’s usually kind of a big deal to me. But I skipped it all (mostly) for this amazing opportunity and I’m glad I did. Yup, I skipped running, my soccer game, the crazy Dallas St. Patrick’s Day party, having a birthday party, all of it. And I had an absolute blast doing it. It was so great being around all of Flula’s creative energy for two straight days.
My friend, the amazing TV host Emily Reppert interviewing Flula for a segment we shot. And yes, that’s a bedazzled fanny pack.
If you don’t know Flula, whenever you get a free day, spend it watching his hilarious youtube videos (vlogs, music videos, celeb interviews, autotunes, etc. etc.). He’s also a sometimes DJ, hypeman, actor, live concert giver, poet, host, and author (he’s written two books – both in one day without using spell check). You can find info here: http://flulaborg.com/
Shooting a episode of “Autotunes” on the Zamboni! He was singing “Ice Ice Baby” btw.
Anyways, now I’m in the process of editing, and videos will periodically be released. But in addition to working with us, he was also interviewed a few times on 105.3 The Fan sports radio station, aaaaaannnnddd the Dallas Mavericks brought him in to meet his idol – Dirk Nowitzki – and shoot some videos for mavs.com. And an extra cool part about that is Flula gave me an extra ticket to the Mavs vs Thunder game St. Pats evening. I’m a huge fan and it was fun sitting a few rows behind Mark Cuban.
We lost the game to OKC, but hey, at least we don’t live in OKC. Kidding. No I’m not. Yes I am.
And the hits keep on coming. After the game we went to see my friend’s band Graceland Ninjas! This was for St. Pats since it was the actual day, even though it was Sunday evening. These guys are a lot of fun. They play cover songs as Elvis. And when they saw me in the crowd, they pulled me up on stage to dance (as they sometimes do). They also had the crowd wish me happy birthday.
I dance so radical, the camera can’t keep me in focus.
And get this! They’re normal guitarist was unavailable, so who did they get to fill in – John Lefler! He’s a great solo artist, but he’s best known for being in Dashboard Confessional. If you know them, you know I’m not in their normal obsessed fan demographic, but I don’t care if mostly teen females are their big record buyers. I heart them! And to meet a member was icing on the cake of a crazy weekend!
He likes it when the girls call him Johnny. I like it when you call me maybe.
There is also a crap TON of stuff I didn’t include from the weekend, but my head is still spinning from all that happened. It was truly a magical time, and I’ll take magical times anytime. Even if it means mostly missing my birthday/st. pats weekend. Let’s be honest, most of those weekends aren’t remembered anyway…thanks to Guinness! So until next year….DANCE!
I’d be a giant in leprechaun village.
