jenepherre: (Cmas PATD Bden Naughty or Nice?)
Doing it because as far as I know, all of my friends were nice enough (and smart enough) *not* to tag me. Ha.



a. People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.

b. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you. (Like many of my friends, I'm refusing anyway. I hate being ordered to do something that should be voluntary. But any of my friends who haven't done this yet are invited to.)



1. What are your nicknames?
Other than some members of my family still calling me Jenny - a name I haven't gone by in decades and they all know I hate it - I don't have any nicknames that I know of

2. How do you style your hair?
hehe Style? What's that? It's pretty long right now, so I put it up in a bun or a ponytail usually. I have started straightening it sometimes when I'm going to a show or somewhere where I know I might have my picture taken.

3. What's new in your life right now?
The PATD Live in Chicago CD/DVD and book \o/ Also, depression pretty bad for the past few days. This is my worst time of year for it though, so I'm trying not to think of it as a major setback.

4. How many colors are you wearing now?
Red, black, charcoal gray, heather gray, white... so 5

5. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Introvert, usually. Oddly assertive around celebrities though.

6. What was the last book you read?
Does Shane Valdés's "A Picture With Books" count? No? Then it was an excerpt from "Professional Guide to Diseases" or "The Merck Manual."

7. Do you nap a lot?
Not more than once a day. Is that a lot?

8. If the person you secretly like is already taken, what would you do?
It would totally depend on whether they had shown any interest in me at all. If the person is obviously happy with their current significant other, there's no way I'd try to get in the way of that.

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
Oh, always. Most recently, overhearing my Dad talking to my brother about me and how he thinks I make terrible decisions in my life.

10. What was the last thing you ate today?
Maple and brown sugar hot oatmeal. Yum.

11. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Too wide a range to describe here. If I shower and wash my hair and everything - 2 hours, usually. Yes, seriously. Although at least 30 minutes of that is spent in front of a fan cooling my stupid body off because it can't seem to regulate its temperature properly.

12. What websites do you visit daily?
LJ, Twitter, myspace. Often Facebook, Google search, Amazon. Some of my own sites to make sure they're running okay.

13. What classes are you taking right now? And if you're not in school anymore, what's your job?
haha Neither applies. No school and no job. And no plans right now for either one.

14. Do you like to clean?
I go through phases where I do, but usually not.

15. What do you want for Christmas?
My credit card bill paid off. Or paid down significantly. And no depression (the disease, not the mood) - for anyone - ever again.

16. What are you doing right now?
Doing this meme, listening to PATD Live in Chicago CD, thinking I need to book a hotel for my trip to LA for the final Phantom Planet show while at the same time debating just selling those tickets.

17. Who was your childhood idol?
When I was actually a child? Either Marie Osmond or Olivia Newton-John.

18. What would you do if you see $100 lying on the ground?
Just on the ground with no possible owner nearby? Yeah, I'd keep it.

19. What is your dream car?
Don't really have one. Something that gets good mileage, has a way to plug in my iPod, is comfortable and nice looking, but doesn't draw too much attention to itself.

20. Tell me something good.
I got an email from Jimmy Simak yesterday. \o/
jenepherre: (PATD Shane in DC looking up at balcony)
Got mine today. Posted a little bit about it over in [livejournal.com profile] valdez_media here.

I have a huge favor to ask if anyone does get that channel. I need someone to record the first episode of Long Way Down for me tonight. It airs at 9pm Eastern and repeats at 12 midnight Eastern tonight.

I'm going to try and get my Dish Network upgraded to the next package so I'll have the channel - hopefully in time for the next episode to air next Saturday - but there's no way they'll do it in time for me to record today's episode.

I'll take whatever format recording I can get - DVD, downloadable .avi or almost any other video file type, even a VHS tape.

The second cameraman on the show is a friend of mine, and I was down in LA night before last for a special screening of a so-called director's cut of the whole show that they screened in theaters across the US. I went to the one in Century City since Jimmy - my cameraman friend - was going to that one. Turned out Ewan McGregor (who stars in Long Way Down) was there too, along with Ron Howard (who is directing the film Ewan is currently working on with Tom Hanks in LA) and a bunch of other celebs I can't remember at the moment. I saw Ewan and Ron, but didn't talk to either of them - they were out of there pretty quick. Had a great time with Jimmy though. He's such an awesome person.

In case anyone's curious:

Ignore the lame-ass flash animation of the two bikes driving along the road. It doesn't look like that in the series *at all.* ::rolls eyes::

Can anyone help me out? Please please please? I'll pay for shipping and whatever. ::looks pathetic and hopeful::

Jen (who is still feeling great and obviously still getting out and living life and whoa it's exhilarating!)

P.S. - I'll post pics of me and Jimmy together and my review of the screening and report on my adventures a little later. But I had SO much fun! I almost don't care that Shane has now defriended me on Facebook. Jimmy is a better cinematographer than Shane anyway, and much better looking too. ;-) Okay, maybe I'm partly saying that because Jimmy is a real friend and Shane couldn't care less about me, but Jimmy really is awesome. SO awesome. And he'll probably laugh at me when he reads this. LOL
jenepherre: (PATD UrieValdes Shane whispers)
I made 4 Brendon/Shane icons and thought I'd share them. :-)



The first one is a manip, but only slightly! LOL All the original pics can be found on PATD Online here.

[livejournal.com profile] sateenmusta wrote a Shane/Brendon snippet for me based on that set of pictures! If you're into the UrieValdes thing (which I obviously am), go read it - it's awesome! Part 1 | Part 2

(If you're interested in icons of Shane alone, I posted 16 of them to [livejournal.com profile] valdez_media a couple of weeks ago. You'll find them here.)
jenepherre: (PATD Me with Brendon at DC M&G Apr 30th)
Well, actually the pics are here: http://pics.livejournal.com/jenepherre/gallery/00035eqz

It's late (or early, rather) and I'm tired from taking care of the two youngest nephews all day Thursday and Friday... not sure how I ended up getting stuck with that, except that they both seem to respond to me, which is good, I guess. I do adore them. Anyway, too tired to actually post the pics in my journal, so you'll have to go to the above link to see them.

There are also random and mostly blurry Zack and Shane pics here: http://pics.livejournal.com/jenepherre/gallery/0003ed3z

I did have fun Shane-spotting. And did talk to him again briefly. He's filming some stuff for Black Gold along with all the stuff he's doing for Panic. Also met Eric (again) and Than from Black Gold, and they're both incredibly awesome.

My sis-in-law arrived sometime during Phantom Planet's set, but I was out meeting Eric and Than along with the super cool [livejournal.com profile] atorable. She and I met while waiting for the meet & greet and just happened to have seats almost right next to each other for the show. We went through the meet & greet together, squeed about the boys and hugs and talked about what pot flowers look like up close. It was THE BEST. ;-D

I have video clips too, but haven't figured out where to upload those yet, because they are glorious 640x480 and I don't want YouTube making them look crappy. Maybe I'll just upload to Sendspace? I don't know. Ideas are welcome.

On the downside - unrelated to the concert - I didn't go to NYC after all and didn't get to see Randypants in Antony & Cleopatra. Lois needed to stay home with her hubby after his surgery, and honestly - I was still recovering from the Panic concert anyway. Wren, my dear... I will have to find some other way to pay you back since I couldn't get you a Playbill. Sorry!

It's almost 5am here, and I should think about getting a little bit of sleep. More later, I'm sure. ::waves to [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia, [livejournal.com profile] celiarosalind and [livejournal.com profile] atorable and everyone else on her f-list::
jenepherre: (PATD Brendon RockStar HCT 4-10)
So, the post-concert (and post-missing the meet & greet) blues are easing up a bit, and I decided to post my pictures. I kinda stopped looking at all the pics other people are posting, but I still suspect these are pretty typical. I did go through and remove most of the blurry ones, but there are still a few that I thought were worth posting despite not being perfectly in focus. There are a few pics of Phantom Planet, The Hush Sound and Motion City Soundtrack as well, but it's mostly Panic At The Disco. And although I really made an effort to get pics of all the Panic guys, the majority of them are of Brendon. You just can't take your eyes off that boy. He's got some unexplainable magnetic thing going on. Seriously.

Phantom Planet )

The Hush Sound )

Motion City Soundtrack )

Panic At The Disco )

I looked through the few video clips I did that night again, and I won't be posting any of those. They're all short little clips - no full songs at all - and none are all that great. Maybe I'll do better at the DC show. Although it's not that my camera wasn't capable of it - it's that my arms weren't. Ugh.

I sort of have little stories to tell about the show last Thursday, but... I don't feel like typing them all out. So let me just say that Eric Ronick is awesome - and TALL. And Shane Valdés (or Valdez, take your pick) is so much hotter in person. No picture I've seen of him does him justice. And he's super nice. And no - I did not ask him about being roomies with Brendon or whether or not that shower pic really is of him and Brendon or anything. Which may have been part of the reason he was so nice and so willing to talk about everything from "The Making of Pretty. Odd." DVD (which he edited in only 3 days) to the fact that he's doing the whole tour with the band (lucky bastard).

Hopefully I'll get another chance to talk to Shane and actually get Eric's autograph on my Black Gold CD and get another chance at a meet & greet with Panic - the latter being something I'm currently fighting with Artist Arena about.

Oh! You can find my scans of the tour booklet here.

So, I'm off to the Washington DC area on Saturday, and will be out there until May 24th. For those who might be wondering, my brother and his family live near DC and I made plans some time ago to go visit them this summer. They just had a new baby about a month ago, and I can't wait to see the little guy. It just worked out well that Panic is doing their DC show while I'm out there. I'm also meeting [livejournal.com profile] llvoncan in NYC to see the closing night show of "Antony & Cleopatra" with Randy Harrison. And we're staying really close to the Angels & Kings bar, so I'm hoping to stop by there for a drink and a photo or something ([livejournal.com profile] celiarosalind - want to come with me?)... but I'll only be in NYC for about 30 hours, so we'll see. If any of my other east coast friends want to try and meet up while I'm out there, let me know.

Guess that's it for now.
