Okay. So I just posted that I've moved...but I realized after the book event in Elk Grove at Knitique...(which was an AWESOME event and yes, Michelle...I'm gonna carry on with this blog cuz of some stuff that you said!) ...that I have to live in two places. See, the other blog/vlog feels more formal and I can't babble like this...so I'm keeping this blog apartment as my summer home and the other one as my more formal city dwelling.
Now that THAT is clear....
THE PK LAUNCH PARTY
I have to go thru the photos properly and really really do it right...but for now...here's one that I just thought was fun. We have a big launch party at the Stitch Cafe in Valley Village last month and the cops came to shut us down. They actually took Bam's driver's license and said if they had to come back again, he would be given a citation for Disturbing the Peace! I guess that means we had a killer party, huh? Yeah, 3 bands played, people were gettin' their hair done and nails were bein' painted and decorated in the coolest fashion possible. Oh, ...and the runway show was stellar. Lots of the models for the book turned up and it was just....cool. It made me feel like the book is really out. I suppose that's a good thing!
Anyway, here's a pic of Bam with video camera and me hangin' nearby.
I promise to sort thru the pics and Bam is going thru the video. We're actually waiting for someone to come back from England who has footage of the cops 'talking' to Bam. Then we'll put the video up on the 'other' blog.
I did my first interview for PKP. (Punk Knits Presents). The lovely and cordial Joan McGowan-Michael and I hung out in her "Love Shack", the trailer she will be hittin' the road in to do her book tour. Stay tuned for updates on when that puppy goes up. The interview was done with my new Macbook Pro with built-in video camera. Ya gotta love that. My only concern is the audio. So we'll see. I may have to find a way to improve that area. But it sure is easier to haul than one of our big video cameras! Anyway, the interview is cool. The PKP show is gonna be just interviews...no techniques...simply getting to know authors and people in the fiber world. Of course, I'll post on here when that episode goes up! Oh, I did have one totally lame ass thing ....when I introduced her....I forgot her second last name. DOH! Can you believe that? Yeah, I was kinda nervous I guess. Maybe I can cover it up in editing...ya know...just call her Joan and put her full name on the screen. If I do ...you'll know why!
SOMEBODY DONE GOOD
My dear friend, Megan was so excited to meet Wenlan (Twinkle) at TNNA. And now, I'm thrilled to announce that she has been offered (and accepted) an internship with her. Hooray! Doncha love it when good things happen to good people?

Oh...and you can check out Megan's collection here! I shot it and edited it!
We've been super busy with Rock n Roll TV. We also entered a crazy video contest that is solely decided by votes. If you wanna vote, feel free. But be warned, you have to actually 'join' the site to vote. It's a 'love it' or 'leave it' voting system and you can vote once a day. The contest ends May 31st. What is it you might ask? Hmmm....it is a stock pitch. Yep. Ya know...stocks, Wall Street ..that sort of thing. I started studying all of that stuff last year. Trying to educate myself. Anyway, we did a stock pitch using a pirate toy and Bam's video and voiceover pirate talent! It's pretty funny if nothing else. Oh, and the stock is a good company, Diageo. Makers of Guinness, Johnny Walker, Captain Morgan, Jose Cuervo...and lots more booze. Figure...we've drank enuf of that stuff in the past...may as well invest in the company now! ha!
Alright...well, next week I'm off to Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. Bam's gonna join me for the Vancouver part so we can visit his parents together.
