The Great Gatsby. Tiffany & Co. San Francisco. California. 5.17.2013.

They were careless people, Tom and Daisy--they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money of their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.
- F. Scott Fitzgerald

Billy Idol & Steve Aoki. Google I/O. Moscone Center. San Francisco. California. 5.15.2013. Guest footage.

And here is footage that people emailed me from the hilarity. If you keep them coming. I will keep on posting it here.

When you hear the music you make a dip
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas oh, the gigolo pool
Hanging out by the state line
Turning holy water into wine
Drinkin' it down, oh
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip
I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so
Say your prayers.


Billy Idol & Steve Aoki. Google I/O. Moscone Center. San Francisco. California. 5.15.2013.

I had no idea Billy Idol and Steve Aoki were playing at the Google I/O after party. I was just going to the conference to check it out and have a beer with the boys. I just went with it. When Billy Idol played, Louisa and I went all the way to the front to take better pictures and we both like Billy Idol. He then sang Eye Without A Face, which is one of my favorites, so of course I know all the lyrics. When he sang the break, I sang along to all the lyrics, and he saw me. Then we made eye contact. The next thing I know, Billy Idol was walking closer toward me. I was a bit confused to be honest. The next thing I knew, he is right in front of me, and grabbed me, and sang to me. It was completely surreal, and I laughed so hard my face hurt. At the end of Billy Idol, Louisa and I went back to find the rest of our group, they were freaking out, as apparently I was on the big screen and they saw the whole thing. Amazing! Then we got more beers. Then Steve Aoki came on. Then the boys decided that I needed to be on stage (no idea why) so they kept lifting me until I finally agreed to be boosted, then I ended up crowd surfing. The only person at I/O none less. So random. If you see any pictures of me crowd surfing at I/O, will you please send me the pictures? The photographer on stage took some, amongst many people. I would also love to see footage of Billy Idol singing to me as well if you see that floating around.

So I got to go to Google I/O as I produced 4 videos that launched after the products announcements. The boys at the agency I am freelancing at did the blimps that live streamed from I/O. This is what it looked like upstairs before they opened the doors to the after party where we tested the blimp. The robot played the drums a la Nikola Tesla. I didn't get mixed drinks from the robotic bartenders since I wanted beer. And I really wanted to ride the lit up dragon, but I was too busy then the public came in when the after party actually began. But don't worry, hilarity ensues. I do not disappoint.
