Laid to Rest Premiere

So a few days ago Dave and I went to LA and got to take pictures for the website that he now works for Shockya.com it was the premiere of the horror movie Laid to Rest starring Bobbie Sue Luther. It was a pretty cool movie actually. The main character, the bad guy, was named Chrome Skull, pretty cool. I like his look...I like chrome...lol. But the event was really fun. We got to be the paparazzi kinda. A bunch of the actors from the Sarah Conner Chronicles showed up like Lena Headey, Brian Austin Green, and Thomas Dekker who is actually in Laid to Rest. That was pretty cool. So we just stood there with all the others and took pictures.

Here are a few of them...

So yay! Dave has had this new on the side job thing going on for about a month. He reviews movies, games, places, etc. for the website Shockya.com He has an absolute blast as he is such a movie buff. So now the fun part comes in for me! He gets to go to Hollywood premieres, red carpets events, and he gets 2 tickets-woo hoo, one for me! So yesterday was our first one, we drive down to Burbank first, which is about an hour and 10 min. away and we go to this amazingly awesome horror gift and book store called Dark Delicacies. It's so cool has tons of autographed books and posters from people like Clive Barker, Mike Mears, and all sorts of other great authors and actors. The owners suggest we go to this collectible store down the road called Blast from the Past and it's also amazing. Tons of movie and tv collectible figures. Dave yacked with the owner for about 45 min. and I realized that we were running late.

So we head down to Hollywood and see thousands of people outside of Mann's Chinese Theatre, where we were going! Yikes, there was a red carpet, media, everything. I was thinking it was for our event which was seeing the movie State of Play (very good btw, check it out on Friday-stars Russell Crowe, yum) so anyways I'm thinking "great this place is a mad house how are we gunna make it in time" (we were late cuz of Dave's "mouth") but it turns out all the commotion was for Zac Efrons movie "17 Again" Ewww! But other then that the trip was fun. I love Hollywood it has such an amazing blend of people and great energy...just a little too busy for me tho. But we will be going down there again on Saturday to screen the movie Laid to Rest. A horror movie! Yipes! And we'll hang out there all day and the weather is suppose to be very nice! Finally.
Here's all the crazies outside of Mann's.

Golden Gods Awards

Well last night kicked major ass! Actually all of yesterday was pretty sweet, I must admit. The day started out regular enough, going thru the motions, doing our early morning contract. We were listening to the x103.9 morning show when they announced they'd be giving away tickets to the Golden Gods Awards in LA for tonight. And lo and behold I dialed and Dave won! And when he picked up the tickets, the lady at the station gave him an extra one for my sister cuz her bday is coming up! So we were stoked.

We get there a little late and have no idea what to expect, the place is small and cozy. It's regularly a club-hence the name Club Nokia! But it was nice, we opted for seating over standing....as I am not a fan of standing for any long periods of time! So we get to sit on the balcony right over the stage-perfect view. The Awards are the first ever American awards for metal music, which my husband loves. I think it's alright-just a little too angry for me : ) So anyways, we have a perfect view of the stage and we are sooo close, as the place only holds about 2000 peeps.

It was hosted by Brian Posehn, the fat creepy guy from the Sarah Silverman Show. He was pretty hilarious making all sorts of very funny jokes-you'll have to watch it-the jokes at the beginning were great. So the show begins, and it's like most any awards show you've seen on tv, a famous person comes out and announces the award, the winner comes out and accepts it. Ozzy won a Lifetime Achievement Award! That was cool, the whole place went absolutely nuts! Then we got to see Maynard James Keenan from one of my fav. "metal" bands, Tool-A perfect Circle-Puscifer. He was saying that people need to start listening to their inner voice and let the creativity come out...it was pretty cool. Slipknot was there and got a few awards-Dave and I had just seen them in concert last month, it was quite awesome. Jonathan Davis from Korn was there, Scott Ian, Kat Von D, I'm not really into metal so a few times I was lost as to who was performing and what not. But overall it was an awesome time. It's gunna air on Mtv2 on April 25 so check it out. It was pretty entertaining even if you're not a metal head.

Now I may sound like a dick but I always bring earplugs to concerts, I value my hearing waaay too much to let any noise make me be hard of hearing by the time I'm 40. But there was the most amazing band that performed last night, called Suicide Silence, and they happen to be from one of my favorite cities, Riverside! Woop woop! So anyways, they all come out in suits, the singer is like skinnier than my sister, his legs are like the size of baseball bats and I'm thinking "OMG! This is gunna suck" But I was blown away, the energy of the whole band, and the singers voice, was out of this world! They played 3 songs, and I took my earplugs out cuz I needed to feel that as much as I could. As soon as I got home, I looked them up just so I could hear more. If you're feeling experimental look them up on Myspace. They are definitely the first hard metal band that actually has some soul, in my opinion. They were great and unforgettable, and by far the highlight of the night for me.

The show was great all in all, a few things that kinda sucked were that I was told that you could not bring cameras in, Dave wanted to anyway, but he listened to me and left it in the car. Turns out you could bring them in but he was told by security that he could not leave to go to the car and get the camera then come back in. So we got no pictures, which I very much regret. Second thing-I guess it didn't really suck, it was actually pretty funny and to be expected at a metal shows, but this blond chick in a mini jean skirt was grinding up on some dude, her skirt kept getting pulled up so you could see her panties, I was surprised she had some one, but it was just crazy. Then she showed her ass to the host and everyone else and the host is all "Oh nice, stripper asshole" it was extremely funny. Try and catch it sometime on Mtv2, April 25!

I thought this ring was pretty awesome. You can find it at GlamRockEmporium
