After a long time of waiting, I finally got an iPhone! This is so cool and I already got tons of apps. One of the apps I got was this WordPress app. So far this feels very user friendly. I’m using the app to write this blog while I’m waiting for cupcakes at Sprinkles cupcakes in Palo Alto
AWESOME! The concert was really awesome. I went with my friend Osman and his cousin Mai. Osman and I were wearing Star Wars shirts of course. He bought his Yoda backpack and I was going to bring one of my six Lightsabers but decided not too. I just wasn’t sure if they’ll let it in. Anyways, after and hour of traffic we arrive at the Arco Arena. We get there around 40 minutes to showtime. We located the exhibits and it was awesome! I couldn’t get any pictures of my own so here are some pictures that other people took.

The show was fantastic and the narration by C3-P0 himself Anthony Daniels was breath taking. You can tell he was really into it and the fans loved it. The show was divided into two halves.
The First Halve was music from the Prequel Trilogy (Episodes 1-3). Started off; of course, with the Lucasfilm logo music followed by the main theme. I thought a nice touch was when you first see Anthony Daniels in a black suit jacket with a gold vest. They played songs like “Duel of the Fates”, “Anakin and Padme”, and “Anakin vs. Obi Wan”. For this song especially was pretty cool. What I did not expect was the fire cannons, which added a lot of atmosphere. After an amazing first halve. They let everyone ave a 20 minute intermission. Next they played music from the Original Trilogy (Episodes 4-6). They played some songs like: ” Leia’s Theme”, “The Moisture Farm”, “Cantina Band”, “Imperial March”, and of course they ended with “The Throne Room and End Credits”. It was spectacular. After a long round of applause, they honored us with an encore of the “Imperial March”. This was probably one of my all time favorite concerts I’ve been too. I wanted to buy a shirt but they were $35, so I bought a cool 3D Lenticular Poster instead. Here is a picture of it:
The only thing that sorta bothered me, was the lady sitting next to me. When we sat down, I was expecting a skinny teen or something. The last thing I was expecting was a female Jabba the Hutt. I was kinda dissapointed that I had to sit next to someone like this, but I knew that this is supposed to be a good experience. I gave her as much room as I can and I just wanted the both of us to enjoy the show and at lest be comfortable. I just hope she didn’t think of this as being rude to her. After the concert was over, we wanted to try and take pictures of the exhibits but it was closed off so that was kinda lame. On the way out we saw a lot of nerds with lightsabers fighting in the parking lot so that was kinda cool
Ok So about two weeks ago, I went to “The Ellen Degeneres Show” and it was pretty cool. The show is shot on the Warner Bros Studios Lot. This was one of the main reasons why I went to this, just to go on the lot without paying anything, plus I guess being on TV for 10 seconds wasn’t that bad
We got there SUPER early. We were like the 4th people there that were not the “Stand By” ticket holders. It was cool to be near the Warner Bros Studios. On the way there, we saw this awesome mural on a side of their buildings that had a bunch of DC Comics Superheros, like Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman etc.
After a long time of waiting, we finally were on our way inside the studio. Once we got checked by security, he had to wait for 20 more minutes. Then after that, we were seated and waited again. By the way, It was really cold but I liked it but not everyone did. On the email that my sister got, it said no T-Shirts so I wore a nice blue dress shirt, but they let in like four guys with t-shirts so that got me a little mad. Anyways, while we were waiting on the set, I guess it was the floor manager and he was keeping us entertained and telling us stuff that we’re supposed to do during the show. Throughout the whole show, we were clapping… ALOT! We were only halfway and my hands started to hurt from everything.
After the show was over everyone got their free CD from Brad Paisley who performed on the show. We all went to the Employee Store which was pretty cool. It had it’s own Jamba Juice and Starbucks inside. My brother bought “Band of Brothers” on Blu-ray for $40 which isn’t bad at all. Then we left the store. We took a ride on a big golf cart to and from the store and the driver took us on a mini tour and telling us stuff on the way. We passed by a couple of sets for “ER”, “The Mentalist”, and “Chuck” which was pretty cool because we actually saw them. Chuck was messing around the the golf cart and the main lady was off on the side. Actually I was more interested about the car I saw. It was the new Nissan GT-R that they used on the show. I was pretty sure they used it on the show because the license plate said “NRD HERD”
Other stuff happened that weekend but not that important. WAIT! There was something! My sister found a glitch online and we got two nights at a Hilton Garden Inn for $20 instead of the usual $130 a night! Yeah I know right?! Anyways, one night most of us were sleeping and then we hear high pitch tones and emergency lights from in the room. We all reluctantly woke up around 4am and we smell smoke. So we sorta get dressed to see what was going on. Apparently Mostly all of the double doors were closed and so I wander around to see whats up (Our room is on the first floor). Strong smells of smoke in the hallway but not outside. We were told that the smoke was actually coming from a microwave that someone wasn’t keeping an eye one and it caught fire. After telling other people passing by what happened we all tried to go back asleep again, but Jasmine was super pissed, even the next day. So that was LA I guess.
