YOU GUYS! I MET ANTON YELCHIN TODAY! What's that? Pics or it didn't happen, you say?

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

Hee hee! He was here for the showing of Like Crazy at the Twin Cities Film Fest. [livejournal.com profile] duckduck and j took me out to it for my birthday present. The movie was fantastic. And had surprise Alex Kingston! They did a Q&A after the movie and then mingled up in the bar afterwards. And we got free drinks. We had to do some leg work to get close to Anton, but we did and he was very gracious. And I might have babbled about Fright Night. But he was sweet and took photos with us despite my being all fangirly. So success all around! :D

and heeeeere's the completely finished blanket! ALL DONE!! so happy about that. now I just need to box & wrap it for Sunday. I think I can handle that part.

since I'm done with this, I've been completely overdosing on reading fic this week. I think I deserve it. next week I plan on getting my iTunes whipped into shape. I do the most interesting things in the world, indeed.

speaking of interesting things, last Saturday we went to the Travie McCoy show, in which Black Cards was one of the opening bands. they happen to be Pete Wentz's new musical endeavor. kind of pop/dance/reggae. ngl, I kind of adore their music. and I had a good time dancing to their show! and then afterward, we hung out and got photos with Pete & Bebe.

clicky, clicky )

so, fun night! I definitely want to see them again.

since I have this new fancy camera now, I'm going to do Project 365 again starting tomorrow. I think I'm going to post the photos via tumblr. I don't really want to use flickr or Facebook, so I guess tumblr is my best option. friend me there if you haven't already? I'm shelikeshairbands. it will be weird to have my blog be something besides photos of Chris Pine.

baaaaaaaa

When you read this, you're tagged!

Take a picture of you in your current state, no changing clothes or tidying up! NO PHOTOSHOP. Show your F-list the real you!



Sunday morning me. Pre-shower and pre-caffeine. Both of which will change very soon.
leighblack: (Music - Don't Stop)
Yeah, it's after midnight so I didn't get a post in for today. But I was super busy! Today is exactly what I needed!

First up, [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin and I went over to Best Buy to watch Green River Ordinance do an acoustic set. Kelly, my friend from work, and her son joined us. The set was short, but totally fun! They told a lot of ridiculous stories and took questions from the audience. And we ended up talking to a lot of fans there, because that's kind of how I roll. The GRO guys were sweet and awesome as usual, delivering hugs and thanks. Jamey was also nice enough to put us on the guest list for the show tonight so we didn't have to worry about getting tickets. =)

Something you will find amusing: we were sitting on the floor during the set and my legs/feet promptly fell asleep. And when I tried to get up afterwards, I totally bit it and fell down. =/ It didn't help that it was my bum ankle. Joshua looked greatly concerned, but it was fine. It's certainly not the first time I've fallen over and won't be the last.

Okay, so then we went over to my sister's open house/graduation/birthday party. I hadn't seen their new house yet, so that was nice. And my family was getting along so that was good too. =) There was Lebanese food and I ate a lot of it.

We journeyed back over to Jaime's for a little while. Chowed some pizza and played a little Rock Band. We finally got around to buying the Family Force 5 song. I love them so much!

Then we headed over to the Fine Line for the show. GRO did a fantastic job and the crowd was totally into it! It's so weird to think about the time we saw them at the Hellhole with like 15 people. The Fine Line was packed and there was a lot of yelling and clapping and singing along. I'm so excited that they're getting such an awesome reception. =) Kris Allen was good too, even though I don't know much about him. He definitely needs some polish yet, but since this was his first real tour he gets some slack.

Kris was signing things after the show and we decided that we didn't want to be anywhere near that scene, so we hung outside with the mob around GRO. We made sure to thank Jamey for getting us in, of course, and got photos with everyone. I just can't stress how entirely nice and appreciative these guys are. They always remember us and treat us so well. =)

Here's a couple photos from today. behind the cut )The rest of the photos are up at Facebook, if you have me friended there.

And now, off to bed! Doctor Who watching in the morning and then work all day long. BLAH.

I already posted photos from work on Friday, but here are some of the photos from Saturday!

yes, I wore three different costumes this year )

You can see all of my Halloween photos here! Including everyone else's costumes!!

I have to leave for work in a few minutes, so this will be short.

Last night's Motion City Soundtrack show was fantastically awesome! Even with equipment failure and Justin forgetting the words to entire songs. Heh. The crowd was SUPER rowdy! It made for a lot of fun, although I was very glad that we got our usual spot along the railing above the pit. Because I had no desire to be in that mob. It's been a very long and stressful couple weeks and this was exactly what I needed!

And I am very glad I decided to change out of my skant dress. It would have been way too hot for the show.

Anyhow, photos from work yesterday! behind the cut )

And now off to a nine hour (GROAN) shift at Hallmark, in my other Star Trek uniform!
leighblack: (POTC - Rock On!)
OMG. Look at how adorable this photo is of me with Stephen Kellogg!

me with Stephen Kellogg

He only played four songs tonight but it was still fantastic and he was just as sweet as always.

(also, I greatly approve of the messy mop top)
leighblack: (GDL - Teen Beat)
well, most of them. I'm still missing a photo with Gareth. Hopefully I'll get it tomorrow. I'm trying to be very polite in my emails, but it's been 5 weeks since the convention and I want my damn photos.

Anyways, photos behind the cut )

I'll post my second Gareth photo whenever I get it...

I have had a pounding headache the past two mornings. And it's back again today. Oh joy. Caffeine, sugar and the YUMMY brownies [livejournal.com profile] wilowisp was nice enough to bring me aren't helping. I think the answer is sleep, but I would probably get caught if I take a nap under my desk.

I had a giant list of things that needed to get done last night (my only free night this week). Most but not all of them got done. So, a solid B maybe? I don't know. I DID get my hair done and I love how it looks.

here's a crappy photo from my phone )

Because you know I couldn't keep it all one color for long. =P

Tonight = work. Tomorrow = work. Friday = ROAD TRIP! Saturday = Cobras and the Fall Out Boys! YAY!

I thought I had more witty things to say but my brain is not cooperating. Send help!

Ummmm. I kind of have no idea where to start this. YOU GUYS! I MET BUTCH FUCKING WALKER!!!

photographic evidence )

Soundcheck was fantastic. The show was AMAZING! My favorite Butch show ever! And it was at the Varsity, which really makes everything better. [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin and I camped out at the front of the stage, while [livejournal.com profile] carleton97, [livejournal.com profile] sister_wolf and Andy elected to hang out at a table. There were so many amazing moments during the show. And then he finished off "Canyons" RIGHT in front of me. As in, I was staring at his knees.

seriously close )

I have about 6 gigs of photos and video to try to dig through, so I'm not really sure when I'll get it all posted. I'm going to start uploading to YouTube tomorrow. And I really will write up better concert reviews. Sometime.

I can't believe it's all over
leighblack: (Wicked - Wicked Witch Was Framed)
Oh man. I thought I was the only person dressed up, but I just ran into someone else in costume. Whew!

Anyhow. Happy Halloween everyone!

thanks to co-worker M who helped with taking photos this morning!
leighblack: (Cobra - Gabe is a Fucking Rock Star)
Ugh. Today hurts. I feel like I'm hungover even though I didn't have a drop of alcohol last night. I'm exhausted and sore and can barely talk and my ears are ringing.

But it was totally and completely worth it! All of the bands (Cobra Starship, Forever the Sickest Kids, Hit the Lights and Sing it Loud) were SO MUCH FUN! It was definitely the best Cobras show we've ever seen. Even if The Cabooze was completely and totally the wrong venue for the show. I was sure some poor little girl was going to get trampled in the crowd. We'll definitely be watching from farther back when The Academy Is... is there in two weeks.

I will try to write up an actual concert review this weekend. For now here's one of my photos from the meet & greet.


Look at how cute we are! YAY!

And now it will be Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers tonight!
leighblack: (Me - Camera Whore)

don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
post that picture with NO editing.

You have new Picture Mail!

I have SO MANY things to do before 10:30am tomorrow!! ::flails:: But I'm determined to get it all done. And not get distracted by watching 'Meat'! Really!!

Also? I bought the new Kasey Chambers CD at Best Buy today. (with my gift card - thanks again [livejournal.com profile] auroram!) And it's listed as being 'Latin - Mexican'. o_O Mexican Australia maybe??

I had a pretty awesome weekend! I went down to the Minnesota Irish Fair all three days. Three days of FREE MUSIC! Okay, I had to walk for almost a mile so I didn't have to pay for parking, but it's not like I can't use the exercise. It's amazing to see how big the Irish Fair is, yet you can still run into people you know. Like [livejournal.com profile] f_o_n_y and [livejournal.com profile] cashbox, whom I chatted with a little on Sat.

A little rundown of the bands I saw:
Romantica - a local band that's sort of but not really Irish. They sounded lovely, especially on the bluegrass cover of "Hallelujah", but the lead singer needs some work on his between songs banter.

Scythian - They were completely fun! Traditional Irish music with a nice kick. A good lead in to the next band...

Flogging Molly - Crowd watching for the FM fans was completely fascinating. Lots of mohawks and chains. Even a mesh shirt on one guy. We got the heck out of the crowd because I value all my limbs, and actually ended up listening to part of the show while we hung out down by the river. FM was great! Even though it's still kind of weird for me to reconcile Dave King of FM with Dave King of Fastway and Katmandu.

The Tannahill Weavers - More traditional music. They were good. The crowd seemed really into them.

Sweet Colleens - Another local, sort of Irish band. I do like them quite a bit.

The Fuchsia Band - I was so happy to see that they were on the schedule! I've seen them all three years they've been at the Fair. And they didn't disappoint this year. Máirtín was perhaps even more entertaining than in previous years. I think he said 'oh jeepers!' about 20 times. I totally love these guys!

Look, I even got a photo with them! )

The weather could not have been more perfect. It was sunny with a nice breeze, not too hot or cold. I don't even mind that I got a little sunburned on the top of my head and the back of my shoulder (which I apparently wasn't able to reach when I put sunblock on). A big improvement over last year, when we nearly died from the heat.

You know how sometimes you just have that perfect moment? Where everything is right with the world and you're exactly where you're supposed to be? That was exactly what Friday night was like. I was surround by awesome music and nine of my good friends and everything seemed perfect. I like those moments. =)

We actually remembered to take a group photo of us all together, but I don't have that uploaded yet. Instead, here's a really goofy one with some of us )

Best shirt I saw all weekend? 'Mom, Dad, I'm Gaelic' =)

Besides all that, I also went to see Idina Menzel on Sat night. I didn't really know what to expect and I was completely blown away. (plus, we were in the front row, which is completely fucking awesome) Holy cow, does that woman have pipes! She mostly did songs from her new album, and she threw in part of "Another Day" and a couple songs from Wicked. And something from the new musical Duncan Sheik is working on about Nero? Yeah, I don't know either. But everything sounded great and Idina is very, very entertaining to watch and listen to.

And I think that was about it for the weekend. Probably enough, eh? Oh, there was the important development that [livejournal.com profile] duckduck and I did decide to go to Chicago next month to see Kasey Chambers. OMG! I CAN'T WAIT! I ♥ her so much!

YOU GUYS!

Errr, why no. I didn't spend $66 to import a shirt from the Netherlands because GDL was wearing it and I liked it. I would never do anything like that.

I won't usually post my Project 365 photos here in my lj, but I wanted to post today's seeing as how it's the first.

Project 365 (001/365)

Starting off with a a photo of myself and my brother, DJ. Sadly, this will be the last appearance of my brother in my Project 365 for quite a while, as he's flying back to Korea in about 7 hours. =/

Don't forget! You can follow my Project 365 over at Legendary Photos, or at [livejournal.com profile] legendaryphotos! And if you're thinking about starting 365 yourself, join us over at [livejournal.com profile] year_inthe_life. We're going to try our best to keep everyone motivated throughout the year.

And I have one more photo, which is actually from last week. [livejournal.com profile] taylorea sent it to me today though and I wanted to post it. I make a really awesome chew toy )

[livejournal.com profile] seimaisin did this a couple weeks ago and [livejournal.com profile] taylorea did it last week. I figured this week might as well be mine. =) I've twice failed miserably at doing Project 365, but I can probably handle taking photos for a week.
