This is absolutely incredible. I want to thank the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for shining a light on DALLAS BUYERS CLUB and for celebrating independent cinema. I’m blown away by this Golden Globe Award nomination and so thankful to the incredible filmmakers for inviting me to help bring a fascinating story to the screen. This has been an unforgettable experience and I’m so very grateful to you all.
I was talking to some friends on Twitter tonight, and I honestly admitted Tulsa might be my last MARS show. Now, I don’t mean forever ever. But then again, maybe I do. I just don’t know.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not for a lack of love for this band. They’ve had my heart since 2005. I adore Thirty Seconds To Mars. Maybe it’s the crazies, the groupies, the drama…I dunno. I’m not about to let that overshadow the fact that I have been on an amazing journey with this band, and have met incredible people. MARS are probably the longest chapter(s) in the story of my life. I am eternally grateful…it just boggles my mind.
I honestly don’t remember following any band as long as I’ve followed MARS, even if I wouldn’t have called myself Echelon until maybe a few years ago. I still question it from time to time…do I really get it. I mean, it took awhile. It’s always changing, but it’s exciting. And here I am…
To create a Shakespearean insult…or to not create a Shakespearean insult.
Thou loggerheaded pottle-deep maggot-pie….
Thirty Seconds To Mars & “Grrl” Seven - Grand Prairie, TX - Dec 5, 2013
Thanks for the awesome m&g guys, and killer show! See you in Tulsa =)
Jared has a very natural charisma and magnetism about him. I never intentionally go into the photo saying “I’m going to latch onto Jared like a dolt” but it never fails! I’m just happy to see I don’t have my head in his armpit like I did in Tahoe. Or looking like I’m playing with Shannon’s chest like my MARS300 m&g photos (I wasn’t, I swear! *lol*)
I keep telling myself, next m&g I’m going to plant myself by Tomo and get a pic with that mofo. I’m a woman on a mission now…
Super sweet Shannon said he liked my pants and thought they were really cool. Tomo was his usual upbeat, silly self. I feel bad because usually I’m so shy, I never manage to say much or make eye-contact but Shannon seems to make it a mission to make people feel comfortable….and always gets me to smile or laugh.
When the q&a started, Jared asked us a lot of questions at first. I honestly turned to the girl next to me and joked, “So, I guess q&a meant Jared asks us questions?”
Anyway, I will never get tired of meeting these guys. Super cool, very down to earth. Even with the shit weather, they seemed in good spirits and took the time to do a q&a, signed our stuff (no pre-signed merch), and did the pics. I’d already given Reni my gifts for the guys earlier - which I never bring, but this time I had something special for each of them - so luckily I didn’t have to bring those into the m&g.
We were a small group, so it was nice and relaxed. And the handful of us that had side stage (inc me) got to go onstage for “Up In The Air” later that night.
I’m not much of a concert photographer, as I’m busy having fun…and my camera phone sucks. But I did manage to get some pics and videos I’ll try to sort through and upload later.
It’s that time of year again! Check out these incredible images of snowflakes under a microscope by Alexey Kljatov.
A happy Friday to our follows - each of them a unique snowflake!
Nature never ceases to amaze me.
