BEDA 3: Pump It Up Party!

It's Sunday night, I'm exhausted, but I've had such a creatively inspiring weekend. :D Yesterday the 'Delete You' shoot was just amazing. I know I talked about it a little already, but my muscles are super sore today from all those hours of dancing so I can't help but mention it again. I have all these photos from the course of the day that I desperately want to put on Facebook to show everyone, but I don't want to ruin the surprise of the video (as it's not going up for awhile).

But since you, lovely blog readers, are some of my favorite people on the Internet, I'll give you a little sneak peek. :)

I'm trying really hard right now to blog about things that are important, but my friends are all sitting around me screaming about bouncy castle obstacle course fun land worlds. I believe Ariana just shouted "OMG OMG WHAT'S IT CALLED. BOUNCY TOWN. CASTLE LAND. OMGGG." How does one blog under these circumstances!

Anyway, before my friends drag me into a car with my laptop in tow in search of a giant trampoline house club kingdom a la a quest akin to Harold and Kumar looking for White Castle, I'm going to quickly sum up the rest of my weekend. After we wrapped the shoot yesterday, my evening consisted of Mexican food from Azteca, lots of champange and guava juice, and spending a good hour or two looking at a website with a collection of pictures of the world's worst tattoos.

Today I had a meeting with my friends Forest and Oliver to work on writing a song for this big project we've been planning for a few weeks. I'm pretty excited about it, and all I will say is that it's about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And it'll be going on my YouTube channel in a month or so.

I've been really enjoying doing these side projects with people up here in Seattle. So often I feel like I have to fly to LA to work on creative projects with friends, but I've been pleasantly surprised with how many opportunities and collaborative efforts I've been able to have up here right near home. :)

Oh god. Now everyone is looking at the website "" (which I can only assume is an obstacle course type place for elementary school kids based on the name "Pump It Up" and the conversation that's been going on in here while I'm trying to type) and are saying it in a bunch of different stupid ways, like "pum-pittup-arty" "pump-it-upperty" and are scheming ways to make a place like this for adults. Or something. My friends are cool. And distracting.

Okay. I promise the I'll try to make the rest of the month much less chaotic than this weekend has been, writing-wise. I'm very excited about blogging every day, and can't help that all my friends decided to live at my house this weekend. I think it makes it more exciting to blog during a crazy month. Something to keep me grounded.

Anyway, I'll be back tomorrow. :)

I can't wait for the buffy project! I was hoping you'd do something with your love of buffy. I also love buffy so it works well :) I'm sure the delete you video will turn out well too. Get some sleep lady!

I'm jumping to conclusions but songs about Buffy, yes?
So if Wizard Rock is Rock and Timelord Rock is Trock is Buffy Rock called Brock? Or Rocky the Bad Music Slayer? Buffy the Vampire Rocker?

The peek of the Delete You video looks so cool! I can't wait to see it!!!

That Buffy project sounds so rad!
Would it be Vrock for Vampire rock? Or maybe Slock for Slayer rock? No... slock is gross sounding. We must find a good term for this new genre!!!

The "Delete You" peek looks great! I can't wait to see it!

I wish my life was as interesting as yours' now. All I'm up to is homework and deciding on college which is just plain stressful.

321 Bounce is a cool indoor bouncy place in Everett.

Bahaha, oh Kristina. Your life sounds so eventful and amazing. :) I can't wait to get out of high school. Begin having some ACTUAL freedom.

Also, stop telling us about all these projects and then making us wait months and months to see them! So painful! (don't actually stop telling us though. :P me enjoys.)

Buffy project? This is way too exciting. :D

And Delete You is one of my favourite ALL CAPS songs, so I'm so excited for this.

I wish you all luck in finding bouncy castle places for adults. =]

I have a "Pump it up Party" Right next to my house! :D

I have been to Pump it Up once because it was my little brother's birthday party. It was super fun! The people who worked there said I was too big to go on some of the things, but I begged them like crazy and they let me go on. Anyways, your life sounds really awesome at the moment!

I'm so glad you're doing BEDA. So many of my favourite bloggers are doing it - it's going to be a great month getting to know them all just a bit better!

The Delete You music video looks wicked, I can't wait to see it!

I can't wait either for those nice projects, by the way those girls in the picture are so gorgeous, I was reading onpharmacy reviews that women tend to think about sex more than men, but society has hidden that
