Dude. I so want to be there. I think I'll still be in summer quarter at that time. Duuuuude.
Ok, in case you HAVEN'T heard (or would just like to pretend you haven't to make me feel cool) it's like, up to the minute reporting of celeb sightings WITH GOOGLE MAPS.
Exciting, because if I get a sidekick and like, abandon all my responsibilities and up and move to Manhattan, and like, hang out in those numbered streets, I too, can intercept fate and spill my coffee on some hot young celeb, and get him to take off his shirt...
Except Brandon Flowers is married, and I don't think he hangs in NY.
And he's my only celebrity crush.
Terrifying because I, as a common unfamous socal kid, don't really like people (aside from the bf) knowing where I am. I would freak out if all the people I know started showing up everywhere I go, nevermind stalkers (I've had some, er, friends who exhibited such behavior) or people I DONT know that KNOW me. Creepy as f*ck, I tell ya. The must be used to it on some level, but what a total invasion of privacy.
I mean, it's only Manhattan right now...but how long 'til the google-map-stalking phenomena spreads? Can it? Will it?
Anyway, without further ado, The Gawker Stalker.
What do YOU think?
Oh, and I wanted to tell you that OVER IT is on tour with Yellowcard And Mae. I hope I get a chance to go to one (or, you know, three) of those shows. It's the Virgin Mega Store College Tour, check out the dates OI is hopping on.
The rumors are true. Damian J. Kulash was arrested last night.
Here's the full story:
The J Stands For Jailbird
Late last night, while standing in front of the Orlando House of Blues, Damian Kulash was arrested and charged with "intent to take pictures and talk to fans." Also, there was a little matter of resisting arrest, which is the official charge.
The unofficial charge is "giving the wrong answer when a police officer asks you 'what part of move don't you understand?'" For those of you planning travel in the Orlando area, the correct response is not "I understood what you said; I just didn't do it." Damian didn't know that, so he was immediately handcuffed and taken inside the venue to chants of "Let him go!" (Had I been there the chants would have been "Jorge, NO!!! It's not worth it!" 'cause you know I got my boy's back.)
A bunch more cops were quickly summoned to help with all the standing around and not doing much, and eventually Damian, still handcuffed, was shoved into the back of a squad car and taken "downtown," a ride that became more fun when the SUV full of girls pulled up next to the cop car waving FREE DAMIAN signs. Damian thanks you, ladies.
Upon arrival, our hero was mugshotted, fingerprinted and thrown into a cell with a bunch of people who didn't want to sign the OK Go email list. Damian was locked up for about nine hours, during which time he ate corn flakes and made friends with a couple of guys, one of whom had rescued his longtime girlfriend from a crack den earlier that day, only to have her sic the cops on him when he came by her apartment to make sure she was doing okay. To that guy, I say: Dude--she just doesn't love you.
Damian was released this morning, and promises he'll be in fine fettle for Tuesday's show in Jacksonville. Until then, he'd like to address two rumors that have sprung up on the Internet in the last 24 hours: No, he wasn't drunk; and Yes, he did get the arresting officer to watch the "A Million Ways" video on the on-board computer. If that's not awesome, awesome doesn't exist.
I love how Jorge writes! But poor Damian. At least he made the most of it ;)

-I'm still intrigued by my face being on the channel 4 myspace investigation. Someone needs to 'fess up to being the Friend On TV before I do a mass deletion my friends list. Kidding, kidding. I hate "cut threats." PS. Tom is hating, I've posted 3 bulletins on myspace today and not one showed up. Whatever, I don't need your bulletins, Tom.
-I got tooth pulled this weekend-- a wisdom tooth to be exact-- and I still have those nifty eventually-dissolving stitches in my gums. It's kind of unpleasant but I've heard SO MANY horror stories about wisdom teeth extractions, so it seems like I got off easy.
-I'm moving. I'm way sad to be parting ways with OC, but commuting blows. I'm moving into a room in a remodeled house by my school. I'm so excited to go to IKEA you don't even know. It's a small room, but even the prospect of purchasing hangers and having a place to HANG MY CLOTHES is exclamation-worthy (!!!!!)
-Oh. And I have four finals this week. I have to tie up a 30 page paper tonight, and study for my bio final. I have two more finals on Thursday, four chapters to read and a 8 page paper to write. I have A's right now I believe, so I can't slack if I want a 4.0 this quarter. One teacher always gives me a B and ruins it, though.
-I took over the LA Market for Island, so now I have two (OC as well) street teams to run (and build)...actually three, because I'm going to be helping buzznet build one.
Everything is crazy, and I have a million things going on, but the strange thing is I do 100x better when I get to multitask than I do when I have like, one thing to focus on.
But I definitely need a new mixtape for the next couple weeks. Ill post my current one in the next couple days. Suggestions?
Aight I'm out for now.
