watch: wvu featured me in a new alumni series!

WVU Alumni Association has started this awesome idea of featuring people from all over that have cool jobs. I'm already a crazy proud Mountaineer alumna, but when they contacted me to be the second feature, I freaked out a little.

So honored to be one of the first people to kick this off. Enjoy a quick look at me in the studio and my goals for the next couple years.


If you're a Mountaineer with a cool job too, alert me! I'll make sure I alert the right people.

love,

watch: i gave a keynote speech for montgomery college

One of MY biggest motivators, is trying to hopefully motivate other people. Hm, maybe it's even my biggest motivator. But I'm not exactly the most intelligent person, or super serious, or professional, or... well, you know me by now I'd think. I just like to work my ass off, hope someone notices, and keep having fun. I don't really know how to go about *officially* motivating people with words.

Hell, even with my own little brother, my best friend, I don't know how to go about giving HIM the inspiration to make sure he's living up to his fullest potential! English may have been my major, I may talk for a living, but my whole life has been made by talking out of my ass.

So when I found out Montgomery College wanted me to give a keynote speech for 8-10 minutes..... that was kinda funny.

Everyone asked if I had written it yet.... Write a speech?! That's a thing?! Nah, I decided to write down some bullet points 30 minutes before leaving and go from there.

Before you go and watch it, let's preview some of the screenshots before you commit to anything.



Alright... Now THIS.... is what I told some smart people with high GPA's at the Harry Harden Jr Academic Excellence Awards.


I could did sit here and critique myself all day, but even with all of the uses of "dumb" and "ridiculous" and other really powerful words, I feel pretty good about the experience. It's almost like I caught a bug... because I wanna learn how to do this better. I wanna do it more. I wanna become really great at it. Hopefully I'll get some more chances.

In the meantime, go out and make some dumb and ridiculous decisions today, ya hear?!

And thanks again to Montgomery College for having me out!

love,

watch etv: artists interviewing each other, episode 3!

When artists come in to the studio, there's one thing I have to get them to do: Be a part of this artists interviewing each other series.

Maybe it's because I think it's interesting to see what they wanna know about each other, maybe it's because I'm terribly lazy... but it's still fun! It's especially fun when they get excited about who they're asking or answering.

Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke kicks this one off to Troye Sivan, who asks Ruth B, who asks We The Kings, who asks Tinashe, who asks Iggy Azalea.

There's a lot of food being talked about. How is it that celebs can talk/think about food so much and still look so damn good all the time?!



How cute is Ally though?! She was so flustered, but she's the nicest person on the planet so of course made something happen and gave the ultimate compliment to Troye.

The next one has already started, with Iggy asking Halsey... hopefully that one will be complete with our visitors in less time than this one!

jeff timmons told me an nsync reunion is in the works!

It may have been 13 years ago since 98 Degrees took their hiatus, but it's been three years since they reunited, and now they're going on their first headlining tour in over a decade.
Coming with them: O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and DREAM.

Normally I hear about these shows, I geek out, I try to get tickets, and then I sit far away and still love every second. This time I realized I could contact Jeff Timmons myself and get him on the show. [PS the fact that I can do that will ALWAYS be INSANE to me!]

Of course we talked about the tour and the Dead 7 movie and other exciting stuff, but I also mentioned an NSYNC reunion, AND SOMETHING MAGIC HAPPENED, Y'ALL.



"It's in the works," he said. IT'S IN THE WORKS.
"....With Christina, Backstreet Boys.... what do you think about Brandy and Monica? Would you fly to Minneapolis for something like that?!"

Details may be unknown, but we do know for sure that he's at least WORKING ON ALL OF THESE THINGS HAPPENING. So start saving your money now. I'm gonna invest in diapers and tissues for extra wetness.

I also delivered props for canceling shows in NC, despite fans being upset.



It's a good time to not live in North Carolina.

For more on Dead 7, the tour, and if he ever thought this is what he'd be doing 15 years ago, listen to the full chat below.



Thank you Jeff, for being awesome and funny and cooperative and getting me excited in more ways than one.

love,

elizabethanytv: learning magic from the naked magic show

A couple months ago I found out I was giving away tickets to some Naked Magic Show with Australian men. I did a quick search and decided one thing needed to happen: An interview/video with Chris and Mike.

After a lot of trying and drive to Baltimore, we made it happen. Now I'm in love and moving to Australia once their tour is done.

That last part may or may not be true.

We had a lot of inappropriate jokes and they told me I suck at spanking, AND I guess I was distracted by them because I called them musicians instead of magicians in my video... but it's still a good one.


Now that I've seen the show allow me to confirm that it is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I don't wanna ruin anything, but you will be impressed by the magic AND their humor [and their entire package, if you will]. If they're coming to you this summer, SEE THEM.

I swear I'm not being persuaded by this naked picture OR the fact we got to hang with them for a while afterwards....



Follow Chris and Mike and the whole show! And enjoy. 

love,
elizabethany
