bittersweet...
Con's FREE of AI ties finally and can return to 'Betty and other projects now... but I won't be there to celebrate his 30th birthday :( 'Can't afford NY plane ticket/hotel prices.

I'm holding out hope--as are many other bettys-for the upcoming tour dates *fingers & toes & legs crossed*

OH, I GOT THE VOLENTEER/POSITION AS REGIONAL RETAIL REPRES. FOR BABY JULIUS PRODUCTIONS = Betty's own record label!!!

Errgg... this entry is LATE! LOL.
Seeing Con in Everett was worth the 4-hour drive! I was a little mad that the drive took an hour and a half longer than I'd planned and didn't get to see him before the show (it was torchure because the Idols tour bus actually drove right past me as I was driving to my hotel and there was NO WAY for me to turn and follow it - damn those driving rules/laws)

Street teaming went awesomely well though! People received us so well--we handed out over 200 handmade cds and 3000 flyers (plus a bunch of other promo items). Eventually, we started getting asked for cds... people came flocking over; it was insane, a lady from a radio station even asked about the band and took a cd to try out! Then just before the show, some reporter doing a tape of fan messages for Con approached me and so Caryn--the co-street team leader, my counterpart--& I went on camera together (the cameraperson scanned over my hyge Con/betty sign, lol)! 'Showed some betty luv.

I had third row, but luckily, security let me move to first row and so often Con sang just two feet away from me. Caryn (who got her seat upgraded to the front row on the lefthand side of the stage) & I got eye-f**ked by Con alot! He spent alot of time over on our side -- lots of bettys/Con fans in our area. He even sang a bit of a song to me and then blew me a kiss at the end of the show, lol... His songs were amazing, but a bit of a blur to be honest (sensory overload, heeheee), but his voice is truly versatile --> from "Hard To Handle" to "My Funny Valentine" to "Boh. Rap" (to "Rich Bitch") = wow.] He also sang "Sweet Home Alabama" wiith the other male idols on behalf of Bo (he did really good job for his sick bud)

During the intermission, I went up and down the aisles handing out flyers--we had no cds left by this time, 'wish we had burnt more--while Caryn ran to the washroom. Again people were really, really receptive and a few times people chased me down for more flyers!

After the show, Caryn and I tried to flirt our way backstage unsuccessfully, then we went over to the tour bus area. (Soo freaking mad that Everett Center told me that was not possible until the last minute... I would've brought the gift I bought him along with me and something proper to sign. Now that I think about it, I had a bunch of stuff in my bag but at the time I was in too much of a rush think straight, lol, geeze) Anyways, when I went up (or shoved my way up) to the gates, he came over a short while later--walked over in slow motion, I swear--he came over to me and said "Hey you, I saw you rockin' tonight, sweetie" , then he signed my fake/photoshoped pic of him and I together (the only thing I had in my lap at the time) and shook my hand through the gate bars {ohhh, images of him in jail for being really naughty}... later Caryn got him to sign one of the flags I made.... and, oh, then--God, I feel like a teeny-bopper talking like this, lol) my friend and I gave him one of my flags to keep. We told him that it was one of the things I had done as a street team member... he kissed it, did a dorky little dance, and said "thank-you very much".

For someone who can look so tough and sexy on stage, he is so humble and gentle in person.

F**king awesome night -- got to meet more Con fans (Laura, hey babe, you should've stayed longer!)/bettys, got to promote Pray For The Soul Of Betty, got hear/see Con preform, got see him afterwards, got autographs, and I got to shake his hand all in the same night!

I'll post my pics soon!

Finally ready to street team.... ekkk, less than 2 weeks!
Phewf, I've been sooooooo busy getting ready to street team in Everett... I've burnt 51+ betty cd samplers, made 35 Greek (paper) flags with betty info on the backs, got 35 betty bumper stickers, and photocopied over 300 flyers (of varous deeigns)... oh, and I've made my sign.

IT CONSISTS OF A PICTURE OF EACH PERFORMANCE HE DID {FROM HIS 'CRYIN' AUDITION --> 'THIS IS HOW YOU REMIND ME...'}, PLUS PICTURES OF HIM SINGING EVERY GROUP SONG HE SANG, PLUS A REACTION SHOT FROM EACH TIME HE WAS TOLD HE WAS SAFE... UNTIL APR. 27TH (THIS ONE, I LABELED 'SET FREE'!) THEN, ALONG THE BOTTOM I'VE BETTY PICTURES!

This sign turned out to be a lot more work than I thought, but it looks a lot nicer that I'd thought! I think it'll attract a lot of fans over to our "Betty Central" booth outside of the venue and hopefully we'll be able to share Con's 'heavy rock' side (PFTSOB music) with some people who aren't aware that it exists, :-) We, Bettys, sometimes take a lot of flack for street teaming - many of our threads on the AI fotrums have been deleted --, but hopefully at Everett my team and I will be able to show how nice bettys really are....'

OMG, I almost forgot -- I have yet to pick out a blue bra to fling at Con's feet -- It'll say "from the 3rd row, 'can't wait for the Betty tour. xxx Lena"

i'M B-A-C-K! LOL.
Finally done my summer course and can focus on what's more important--being back in this community plus street teaming for Con/Betty at the Everett Concert in Aug! Anyone who's going to this concert or even if you aren't attending the concert and are still interested in helping out -- but may not be familliar with what 'street teaming' is -- just give me a shout out. I'm the co-leader for this event and I say 'the more the merrier!' Plus, I'll be happy to clarify any misconceptions about what street teaming actually is.

LA PFTSOB PARTY 06.28-9.05 = MY B-DAY PARTY --- MY MEET'N'GREET WITH THE BAND
MY GOD, CON IS TALL AND SHY [AND, WELL,.. YOU KNOW ;)]

When I went up for my autograph signing, the other band members -- who I'd met while waiting in-line -- said "hello, again"; whereas Con kept on smiling and just saying "thank-you for coming,.. thank-you for coming,.. wow, all the way from Canada? Wow, thank-you. Happy birthday, sweetie."

I wasn't suppose to have more than about 10 secs with the band (because there were about 550+ fans there and each of us were getting a 'meet and greet'), but I couldn't help it... I asked Con "this is my birthday party... could I have a birthday hug?" Totally wasn't really expecting anuthing... but he said "sure thing, absolutely" and STOOD UP, WALKED AROUND HAMBOUSSI, PAST THE BODYGUARD, AND STOOD IN FRONT OF MY CHAIR, AND WRAPPED HIS ARM AROUND MY SHOULDERS! (my arm was around is neck) We stayed like that for about 15 secs as I teased him about our height difference and he laughed and whispered into my ear... then, I slowly let go and he went down ON HIS KNEES TO CHAT WITH ME. I don't know how I stayed so calm. Anyways, I can't remember what he said but he put his hand on my thigh when he noticed that I had handcuffs attached to my seatbelt (like he had when he went to the MTV Movie Awards) and he stood up and showed me a pair of small handcuffs attached to his belt... it almost looked like he was showing me 'something' else, lol (there's a pic of this on the web = dailycelebs.com; click on Connie's pic and scroll down). Then the whole band signed my b-day card -- and I got a llttle bit of Con's hair as a keepsake that I hinted for in the card. About two hours later, PFTSOB preformed and Connie was nervous, but they sounded great and got an encore! Afterwards, the band -- except for Con, as far as I know -- went out drinking with some of us fans.

I'm no longer bitter/sad about him not winning A.I. -- he seemed happier and more at peace singing with his boys than when he was on A. I. (where the judges kept on belittling his 'rocker' ability); it was obvious that he knows who he is and that he's better off with the band he's worked so hard with for so long.

I'M OFFICIALLY A BETTY FAN NOW, NOT JUST A CONSTANTINE FAN - THAT BAND HAS A HEART OF GOLD AND TRUELY LOVE CON (as well as their fans); I REALLY RESENT THE WAY THE MEDIA PORTRAYED PFTSOB WHEN CON WAS ON A. I..

oh, those of you who I took addresses from to get autographs, I gave your envelopes to their LA manager; she's cool.

OH, BABY -- LESS THAN 3 DAYS TIL PFTSOB PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PostPosted: Sun Jun 26, 2005 2:31 am Post subject: info galore...

"o.k. here's the definitive info cameras are cool!!!!
yes, that's right; you will be able to shoot during the evening at will, except the autograph signing the autograph signing will happen right away... everyone will receive a signed photo of the band - we're going to do them before - so the line will move super fast, but everyone will get to meet-n-greeet.
Also, if you get anything betty(there are some REALLY cool new merch items - never before available - like three different "Betty Bitch" shirts, also, betty trucker hats, and wristbands) we will sign that stuff right on the spot... the afterparty will start at Key Club, we can stay there all night... when we get bored though, a lot of people are planning to go to the Bel Age - and we're cool with that... very close by - no dress code - outside. Cool?

Any remaining questions, I will answer in the morning...
tired

sweet dreams,
Taylor"

please DO NOT spread rumors, I SUPPORT CONNIE/PFTSOB 100 percent, I just need to rant.
I seriously thought that PFTSOB had the club for the night... -- (didn't the NY party go until closing time?)

I just read something a bit distrubing, in my opinion -- I thought that the release party was from 6:30pm-12:00am, but now I've read that the betty party officially ends at 9:30pm and that the upper level of the club is reserved, but not for fans--for music execs... Furthermore, the band might just leave shortly after 9:30pm. ????

I AM STILL STOKED ABOUT GOING -- DON'T GET ME WRONG -- BUT my plane tix = $310, my aunt who's coming me is paying for her tix + hotel, my med. insurance,.. etc.

Frankly, Constantine/PFTSOB can talk to music industry people whenever he/they want/s... the band is in the business. I don't mean to sound selfish or anything, but this event -- as I understood it was for the fans. Why would he/the band schedule to talk to music reps on the exact same night that the fans spent hundreds of dollars flying in from god knows where? PFTSOB could hold a press conference before the club opens or the day before or the day after the party... or sure, do media coverage and whatnot outside of the club, but don't advertize a party for "real/true fans" and then cut the release party in half; it really seems unfair to those of us who are taking time out of our lives to travel a long way to support the band....

I DO UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF TALKING TO EXECS -- AS I DO WANT THE BAND TO "GO FAR", BUT I JUST WISH THAT IT WOULDN'T CUT INTO THE PARTY TIME.

AS I SAID, PLEASE DO NOT SPREAD RUMORS -- I'm sure the party will be great and that they probably have something wicked planned for us,.. I'M TRUSTING EVERYONE IN THIS COMMUNITY JUST TO LET ME RANT AND NOT SLUR PFTSOB as not everything I read is neccessarily true... Please just indulge my rant.

Yah! Go Connie!
I'm trying to stay away from my Connie obsession until after my summer course, but it's soooo hard. Anyways, I found this poll... the results, thus far, speak for themselves!

random questions, sorry
1. How do you upgrade tixs?
2. (in a concert) if a seat in front of you are empty (unlikely, but whatever), can you move up?
3. Does anyone have last week's US WEEKLY where Simon mentions missing Connie? Or any PEOPLE MAG articles/reviews of PFTSOB?

ANYONE ATTENDING THE EVERETT CONCERT - SIGN IN HERE ;-)
HEY,

How about a cheap dinner/get-together before the concert? It'd be a hoot to get to know one another... chat, compare blue (and/or PFTSOB) outfits, and whatnot.

CRAZY IDEA:
If we all brought a blue bra with our names and row no.s on them, it could be a surprise to Connie if we randomly shot them at his feet at different phases of the concert. If only one of us did it, it might be asking for trouble, however, if a bunch of us did it,... :-P

Just hafta be careful not to hit him -- or anyone else! If you're going to be seated too far back, you can give it to another one of us and we'll "sling it" for you. :)

It's just a light-hearted idea, nothing major... nothing to take away from his singing or anything... JUST FOR FUN!!!

[Yes!!!] & [Ahhh-ha!]
Earlier today:

YES!!! AHHHH!!!!! = 10:32

I GOT FLOOR SEATS IN ROW 3 FOR EVERETTE == OH, BABY! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, that was a lot of work!!! kept on having to call long-distance because the presale link wasn't working and then when it did, i had 8 minutes to type in all my mastercard shit and whatnot... AHHH, IT WAS SOOOOOOOO STRESSFUL, BUT IT'LL BE SOOO WORTH IT. I JUST HOPE THAT THEY DON'T GO BACK ON THEIR WORD AND STICK ME IN THE DAMN WHEELCHAIR SECTION -- before I bought the tickets, the lady at box office told me that they'd just remove 2 seat for me if they were aisle seats, but there was no way for me tell if seats 37 and 38 were aisle seats or not in the 8 minute countdown!

-----------------------

Ahhh-ha:

According to a poll (accurate or not), Connie was voted as 2nd fave to win the "Idol" title = 48%, only to Bo's 68%...

Carrie's vote is only 32%!

If only the votes reflected this poll, we would've had our rocker's finale! --> Oh well, I guess PFTSOB needed Connie for the release party,.. :-)

FYI - Poll's in the bice_squad, a community I joined a long time ago... in order to get the "Idol" results, you have to go through a long questioniare, but I was bored & it was fun :-P

til later,
