FIRST of all: Thank you all SO much for voting! A couple hundred of you let me know which clips I should keep, so thank you for making my decision-making easy. ;)
Now, watch the final, short, official product:
I don't know the best way to go about getting this on TV as part of or one of their full length commercials, but they say to get as many views and fans as possible "fans" on my Sun Drop page to be considered. [I'm sure comments, likes, etc wouldn't hurt, either! AKA they'd help.]
SO.... Friends, lovers, darlings, pretty people.... Watch the video, love it, share it with all of your friends and social media outlets, and tell them wassuppppp. Make sure you're sharing the CHANNEL link. I think that helps most.
Nothin' like a little pressure from your girlfriend to marry her, right? She wants the ring, you want the freedom... a huge fight happens, yelling, screaming... and the guy normally wants to cry and run.
These little kids have the fight, and it's INTENSE. It's also a little too adult-like in many ways.
She is NOT going to let him give up, and he's literally trapped on that stool, SCREAMING. Plus, she tried to win him over by cleaning up after him in the kitchen, then refuses him to look anywhere else but her eyes...
I guess we do learn all this stuff pretty early. Wowza.
I assume this will really take off as one of the house/international songs that we in radio have to jump on board with. I'm not a huge fan, but I'll have to get used to it.
Candyman 187 ft. Snoop Dogg--> High Off the Fame
Also not my favorite song I've ever heard. I don't think it'll become huge, but you'll probably hear it around.
Gavin Degraw--> Not Over You
I love it, but I'm a fan of this kind of music, and definitely of Gavin. I'm glad he's back, and I could totally listen to this song over and over again!
Lady Gaga--> You and I
I like that she's switching up her sound a bit, and I can definitely appreciate this song. I know, it's crazy. She shot the video in Nebraska, which also adds a hint of I'm-okay-with-this. We shall see how it does...
Patrick Stump ft. Lupe Fiasco--> This City
I for sure enjoy a song that shows city-spirit, no matter where you're from. I love the sound of this song, and I think it could do pretty well as a single. I dig him and his voice and his song.
I love the weekend-anthem theme, obviously, but what's with the Avril chime-ins for "yeahyeah"? A lot of things throw me off, but as a whole, it's kinda fun.... kinda.
Simple Plan ft. Natasha Bedingfield--> Jet Lag
I heard this in a store the other day and wondered who the relatively familiar sound was. At first I thought it was a little cheesy, but it grew on me quick. I enjoy.
The only new country music available on YouTube as of now:
I was checking out my newest followers on Twitter today, and stumbled upon Allison, AKA @reignboXploshun. The first thing I thought was "holy wow... She looks like the brunette Ashley Tisdale.
I did my research, and I think I was right. They even make the same face!
So naturally, I had to find another doppelganger for this post, and my ginger radio BFF has been trying to convince me that people think he looks like Mark Zuckerberg. It's time to get to the bottom of that opinion.
What do you think? Did I find Ashley's long lost twin? Does Zuckerberg maybe have a brother he didn't know about?
So I got dared to "Sun Drop" all over town, just like they do in the commercial. I was totally down to do it from the beginning, but I had no idea how late to the party I was. [FAIL!]
Anyway, one of my mottos, of course- "Better late than never!"
So yesterday I went all around town, from the mall, to the bar, to the library, to campus, and dropped it like it was hot [which it was, by the way- 107 degrees]. I can't decide which of these to put in my final submission, so watch and tell me your thoughts!
I totally wish the underwater one had been clearer, but oh well. I did my damnedest!
I'm probably doing this all backwards if I want to be on a commercial... Actually, I KNOW I am. I'm supposed to get as many views and fans on my Sun Drop page as possible, but it has to be a video under a minute, which is why I need your help in choosing the clips.
AKA... get ready to share the shorter version as much as humanly possible once I make it based on your input in a few days.
Remember a few months back, they asked everyone to shoot some video during one specific day and upload it to YouTube? It was for a movie called "One Day on Earth" that will literally show things that happened on that day, all over the planet.
I'm freakin' pumped. Even within one town so many things always happen on any given day... Imagine how huge this could be WORLDWIDE.
Here's the first look at the trailer:
SO. MUCH. CULTURE! Crazy. The people putting this together are putting in so much time and work, but it's going to be so worth it. I can't wait.
As far as how the locals are treating the filming of Real World San Diego, everything's looking pretty familiar. It's a lot like DC. Stalkers everywhere. Neighbors hating. And even a crazy blonde chic who keeps going to find them outside the house.
No, really. There's an EB-alike [or wannabe, depending on if you're a B or not] who's been making these videos of her going outside the house and then commenting on it.
Half of me is kinda obsessed with the fact that there's someone out there doing what I did, the other half has no comment. :) I'll leave that to you all.
Other stalkers have gotten some other good video of the cast, though. Here's another one of them at the Bird Rock Coffee Roasters:
Looks like someone found some boyfriend material, and then the ever-so-exciting coffee talk outside with all of the roommates! Weee. [Side note: Apparently the Asian girl is only 19! I enjoy the idea of the stories she'll bring.]
And here they are inside Hodad's, sitting at a table, trying to avoid the papz.
They made the same reaction the DC'ers did- covering their face, looking pissed off, stopping their conversation. Looking back, I realize how obnoxious I was, but let's be real- they don't need to be all dramatic about it.
As for story lines... doesn't look like they have figured much out. Sightings have been pretty lame. There are a TON of tweets out there from strangers saying they hung out, signed waivers, made out, etc with the cast... but who knows what's real or worthy of anything.
I'll continue to keep ya updated on what I find on Vevmo/Twitter! If you know anything and want to share, you know how to get in touch with me.
How bout a little bit of warm and fuzzy feelings? This is AMAZING.
This group finds a whale that looks like it's struggling, then they realize it's on its last couple breaths of life thanks to being caught in a net. They free it, and it thanks them with an awesome show of flips and slaps.
Goosebumps, for sure. Absolutely incredible... like it's out of a movie.
Whew, it's been too long since I've done a full catch-up on all things Real World San Diego. I guess I got lazy with the boringness of stalking last season, but this season is proving to be full of hot tub wannabes!
She's flipping BEAUTIFUL... and she has the "girl next door" type of beautiful about her, plus seems pretty likable in that video. I can't hate, that's for sure, and I know the boys definitely won't.
There have been some other cast sightings that I will put up in a separate post. I'm just here doing all I can to keep y'all in the loop without having to search through millions of posts like I do to get the info to ya! [And, duh, I kinda miss my stalking days.]
Two of today's Twitter trending topics are hilariously "racist." I say it in quotes because I think it's a really good sign that we can publicly talk about ridiculous things white and black people do and laugh about it together.
We all know what stereotypes come with different races, and most of us have accepted them. Yay, America!
Here are some that I just stumbled upon that I thought were just fantastic.
There are a lot that I expected to see like stereotypical foods and straight up insults, but there weren't many of those, which probably makes it a better topic.
Everyone enjoys a good girl fight. They're far too hilarious not to. Imagine the possibilities of entertainment if it's a couple of real life hookers on the streets of San Francisco...
Then watch it become a reality.
[PS- It's not that graphic video-wise, but the language is totally NSFW.]
I really don't know that I've ever heard the b-word yelled so many times, nor have I heard someone compliment a girl for being pretty while fighting her, but still the highlight was the guy coming out of NOWHERE and singing.
Good morning, Happy Friday, and Happy Birthday to my brudder tomorrow! [You should totes follow him as a gift from me. Especially if you're a Redskins/WVU/sports fan, or like following people like me who will one day make it big.]
Anyway, didn't get to do any daily Hangovers this week, so here's a bunch! [And I'll probably have to do another one on Monday so I don't overwhelm you!]:
