I performed in a kick-@$$, balls to the wall, epic performance music video this weekend with Super Geek League! I’m so thankful that I got to be part of it (seriously SGL and all of the awesome performers and musicians I rocked with, thank you)! While hanging out behind stage, I managed to type out a quick post for the C+D website:
In the Green Room
Sitting here, getting ready to perform in a music video, I find myself excited. It’s an interesting thing, finding out that the same people that you hang out with on a day to day basis, are the professionals.
I’m rocking red body paint, highlighted with dark accents for muscle tone. My face paint is a dark, toothy grin. I had a friend just complement me and say that I looked like something out of Wildchild World (who I absolutely idolize ). This is cloud nine with an evil smile!
We’re pushing to be big. The next big production, the next big event, the next big ‘WOW’ factor. It’s going to look and feel new.
I have the ‘I’m here’ feeling. I’m finally making it. All of those things that I always dreamed of doing with my performance, I’m doing. It feels amazing. Chasing my dream while having a day job is working. The Business Degree is paying off. The constant body work and discipline is worth it.
How wonderful! I’m on the road to becoming the thing that I wanted to be as a kid. I can’t wait to see where I’ll be in a year.
Post epic weekend, I’m still managing to push my day jobs to my limit. I am now working on multiple projects, including working with the Burning Man Project and Burners Without Borders (which I’ll be posting about next week).
I have two awesome books coming in the mail this week! One is on fashion and technology (electronics sewn into fashion), and the other is on FX makeup and design. I can’t wait to get my hands on them and learn new things! I’m hoping to design something new and crazy for NYE!
Next up for the performance life:
Bootie Seattle! I’m going to try and book something between now and then. Definitely will keep everyone updated.
