I'm working on some projects listening to KIIS FM and Beautiful Girl by Sean Kingston is playing. I had auditioned to play the 50's diner waitress in the music video so it was fun to hear the song. Check out the link if you want to see the actual video. I haven't been listening to the radio in awhile and am loving the mix they're playing right now.
I know, how boring - commercial radio right? But I'm lazy. I don't like creating my own playlists because I get bored with music so quickly and want someone else to introduce me to new music. Granted if I'd been listening to the radio it wouldn't be new, but still.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know I will post pix from the Kick-off party for the World Series of Video Games Presented by Intel (WSVG) at the Dallas NorthPark Center Mall where they Rocked the Park with Guitar Hero II as soon as I get them. The game store manager said it was one of the largest tournaments they've held. The winner is now entered in the final 32 for the WSVG. Cool, eh?
Apparently all 1,000 WSVG tickets were given out for the WSVG event taking place July 5-8, 2007 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, TX. You going to be there? If you missed Guitar Hero at the mall don't miss it again - catch the hype! Here's the blurb from our Web site:
"Be a Guitar Hero on TV! You can jump in on Thursday from 11am-6pm and Friday from 10am-1:45pm and compete for the remaining 8 positions in the Guitar Hero 2 competition. Win the crowd, but most importantly win the judges over! Judges in Dallas will include Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil, Sal "Sluggo" Accardo, Senior Editor of PC GameSpy, and TV Host Geoff Keighley."
Next up, I'm helping prep the on-site CompUSA promotion "featuring retro video arcade games made popular in the 1980’s including Pac-Man, Joust and Defender. In addition to the classics, CompUSA will also give gamers the chance to compete among each other on several of today’s most popular gaming consoles, including XBOX 360 and Nintendo Wii, connected to large plasma TV's." Fun, eh?
This is what their PR firm came up with and I think it sounds like a lot of fun - I remember those games! Anyway, enough already. Time to get back to writing. Copywriting that is. Yes, what a dull girl I am right now, but hey, it's summer, got to pay the bills and had a great day playing with friends I haven't seen in a bit.
I'm glad because Gali, my artist client, is very happy with the bio I just wrote for her. Her "Requiem for a Housewife" installation at Teri Hatcher's production office is moving right along. I'm going to ask Gali if I can post some pictures of her art in case you're curious. I love it!
Her biggest influence is Anselm Kiefer with a bunch of other contemporary artists thrown in - Roy Lichtenstein, Elmer Bischoff to name a few. Ring a bell? Anyway, enough. I'll tell you more about her later. She's very interesting.
Thanks for stopping by. Talk at ya.
