Look! I'm updating my blog! I am not dead! I am aliiiiiiive!
A lot has been going on since my last post. I went on a road trip by myself to Seattle and points beyond. Met up with various friends along the way. It was quite lovely, actually. I love traveling alone. Made it all the way to Idaho. Woo.
Drove home and promptly landed a gig helping out on the set of a music video for the band Kaiser Cartel. Spent a day running around Mississippi Studios with a shot list and a bag of lenses. Earned several hipster points.
Original Sound Trash recordings are slowly coming together. There have been a lot of technical difficulties but I think we're past most of that. I think. Ryan's the techie guy. I just press the buttons and sing when it's my turn to sing.
I've also recently joined a team of comedy sketch writers in creating a show for the local public access channel. The first meeting was last night and was quite hilarious. It was a fairly large group of people and everyone thought they were really funny. Not everyone was. I spent most of the meeting afraid to say anything for fear I would strike out harder than the old guy with the ten minute Lewis and Clark sketch. I connected with a couple of people though and we're going to create a sketch about the nation's first school for hipsters opening in north Portland. It will probably air on good old channel 11 in about October.
In other news, I applied for a spot in an artist's community in the city. I would have my own studio apartment with a bathroom and share a kitchen with a bunch of artsy hippies. It's a living situation that was created specifically for musicians, writers, filmmakers, painters, etc. I haven't heard back from them yet, but I think it would be really cool to live there.
Anyway, I feel like lately I've been traveling at the speed of light (that's why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit...and yes, I will make a supersonic man out of you). And then when I sit down to blog about everything I'm either too tired or don't know where to start.
But there's really no wrong place to start as long as I start somewhere. So there you have it. That's the Spark Notes version of what has been going on in the life of Lauren lately. I am not dead. I am aliiiiiiiiive!
