While it is raining on all of you suckers in NYC, I am in sunny LA through June 2nd doing remote production for this year's awards show. ^_^ Jealous, Barnes?
(Thanks for house sitting for me, I <3 you!!!)
My camera's photo tool is pathetic (1.3 megapixels, Samsung, on your "smart phone" i760? For serious? Guess who is getting a crackberry soon?) but at least it works, so feel free to refresh this page or visit my MTV Movie Awards flickr set and come along for the ride.
Things aren't all sunshine and walks of fame, unfortunately. I have a miserable cold and look like crap. So *surprisingly*, most of these pictures will be of other people and the events unfolding around me. Yes, my vanity is way strong.
If your curiosity compels you, here is my twitter. I update it just enough to make it all sound more glamorous than it is.
One of the things that I did not actually tweet about tonight (because I was disracted) was that my cool boss Ocean McAdams invited some of us to catch the season finale of 'Lost' that was being screened in a big suite on the Universal lot this evening. I had never actually watched a single episode of the show before but have to admit I am now intrigued.
I also fulfilled one of my fun goals for this trip - to ride around in a cart on the Universal lot at night. Another goal was to eat real mexican food and I did that last night at Los Tacos in West Hollywood. *Yum*
Let's see if by the end of this trip I am able to accomplish all of these minor miracles:
- go on the Simpsons ride at Universal Studios
- have brunch with my dad who is in town
- have brunch with my friend Jessicah Pratt
- take a photo with the dude dressed up like Beatlejuice who walks around Universal Studios
This experience would be a lot better if I didn't have snot running out my nose and a horrendous cough, but themz the breaks.
The MTV Movie Awards will air live on MTV on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, with MTV News' "Coming Attractions" preshow kicking the evening off at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Our host this year is Mike Meyers, who is crazy (funny).
