Jorma and Akiva finally get facetime on SNL!

You may not realize it, but Andy Samberg is actually part of a trio called "The Lonely Island". They had already achieved some internet fame before being recruited to SNL. If you check out You Tube, there are a bunch of hilarious skits and music videos from the early to mid 2000s. Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer have all been working as writers for SNL for a few years now but Andy is the only cast member. It’s still not a bad gig, I mean this is an Emmy award winning group (they are responsible for all the Digital Shorts, including "D in a Box", which is what won them the Emmy). But it’s so sweet that SNL finally gave them real face time!
When I say "real" it’s because you may have seen Jorma and Akiva on the screen for a couple seconds just thinking they were random extras.
For example, in "Giraffes" the face of the guy on the screen (with missing eyes and brains getting eaten) is Akiva.
You see Jorma walking by, chomping on lettuce at the end of the digital short "Lettuce". He is the boom microphone holder wearing a vest who appears in front of the camera and vomits in "Jam the Vote" and "Everyone’s a Critic".

I could go on and on about how much I love these guys and about all the funny videos they’ve done, but you can easily find them if you’re interested. Here is the video that was aired on SNL this past Saturday (probably NSFW, even though this aired on TV at 12:40am):

This season of SNL has been really funny. I know it has its ups and downs and there was a period recently where it was boring except for when something The Lonely Island related was being aired. But between the great guest stars and political satire, I have enjoyed myself. I think there is a great cast, with one exception – Casey WIlson. She is a featured player and I realize that means she might be less experienced than the others but she’s awful. She gets on my nerves. She overacts and is never funny and hasn’t done one even half decent impersonation of anyone yet. And she’s had plenty of chances. For some reason, she’s been in a disproportionate amount of skits – not just for a newcomer, but period. There are some episodes where she is in almost every skit and it makes me wonder why.

Anyway, the Lonely Island is coming out with a CD, Incredibad, on February 10, 2009. Yes, I will own a copy. 😉

The day and age of the ex-reality and porn “stars”

What was originally intended to be just one post about my Saturday night here in my Livejournal has turned into a Blog Battle of sorts.

Kendra Jade Rossi decided to post this blog on her Myspace page in response to the attention my Livejournal entries about Lukas Rossi’s show the other night are getting:

I don’t know how many more times mandimercedes and I have to point out that neither she nor I were kicked out of the club! Maybe Kendra is confusing us with this:

Subject: RE: LOL!!

Body: about the lucas show…we left right after they escorted the girl from the show for saying "you suck" and somehow security overheard her. Then I opened my cell phone and they came over to tell me to turn it off…I had to tell them sarcastically "I will turn off my phone I will also be quiet and please dont hit me…" 🙂 laughing we left..

I’ve been to Bedrock before and I know this is not their style. They only did this because Kendra Jade and Lukas wanted that. Again, I’d like to point out that the staff at Bedrock are awesome and I have nothing against them. They are friends of mine. It is Lukas and Kendra that are unprofessional.

The only reason the girl said "you suck" in a private conversation is because of how Lukas was acting. Funny how none of the males who straight up yelled out mean things to Lukas in a loud manner were not kicked out. Only a female was kicked out. I wonder why.
There was a girl who was kicked out and just let back in a few mintues later.

I wish I could post some of the other messages I got agreeing with me and telling me other stories about Lukas and Kendra, but I would be giving away their identities, even if I took out names. Some people are from L.A. and know them. The messages I received are freakin’ funny!

By the way, if you guys hate bloggers so much, why did Lukas post this picture and send it to Perez Hilton?! (Thanks to one of my commenters who told me about http://nouveaubelles.blogspot.com/2008/08/sadly-its-come-to-this.html, which is where I saw this):

A few of you asked me if I will be attending the show tomorrow in Virginia. I actually would (for my friends in Beretta Jane, not for Lukas) but I have my C/C++ class tomorrow evening. I am not, as Kendra states, hiding behind a fake name and behind a computer. CherryTeresa is the name I have been using for years, before MySpace or Livejournal or any of that. It is the name I have been using when I perform or record my music. People know me and know who I am. You’re the one posting anonymous comments on my blog. Now you claim you won’t post on my page and you’d rather post in your own blog but that’s only because I made it known that I have the IP addresses logged. And because you realize I screen the comments (but I have unscreened all of them except for those who double-posted or posted their own personal information).

And by the way, I’m not hurt, as you say. This is funny stuff!

"I could tell you the REAL story about this , and about many of the other rumours etc. but the truth is I am above it."
The truth is that you would have to either lie to explain what happened or admit that you two are jerks.

Lukas Rossi blocked me! And other updates

 

Funny how I never even talked to him or messaged him. Haha! I only ever posted one comment to him and it was nice (before he show happened).
I guess I really upset him. Wah, wah, wah. Should I call the wahmbulance?

(In case you missed the my original blog about Mr. Rossi and all the comments I received, go here: http://cherry-teresa.livejournal.com/98135.html). I went to a party yesterday (and hung out with some people who have much more touring experience, have sold more records, and have played in front of more people than this chump… and they were much nicer and down to earth). When I came home, I discovered I had received all these livejournal comments. Too funny.

Not only did my blog get dozens of comments but there were many more text messages, emails, and myspace messages, and myspace comments that I received. Almost all of them agreed that Lukas blows and even gave me additional unflattering information on this tool.
Only two comments so far were negative toward Mandi (mandimercedes ) and I. And the IP address was logged. Both posts were from the same IP. The same person(s) posted it. Based on the location and the way it was written, it was probably Lukas and Kendra Jade posting. (KJ = his porn star wife/manager).

Kendra Jade posted a blog stating how well the show went and that there were 200 people there. Not true. By the end of the night, there were only about 30 people. Most of them were either there for free and just talking to each other, hecklers who were mean to Lukas since he deserved it, or Canadians who followed him. Yes, there were more than 30 (but not 200) at the beginning of his set, but most of them left after the first or second song because of the arrogant things he was saying to the audience.

And I was mentioned at the end of the blog. If it wasn’t me she was referring to, then I guess other people made it known they were unhappy with her and Lukas.
http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=45117547&blogID=429106995
I’m referred to at the end as "that one girl". Guess what? I’m not the only girl (or guy) who was dissatisfied!
The club didn’t have as many people there as she stated and the club promoted for more than a week. I understand that sometimes in the music business, people will sugarcoat things and that’s fine. But don’t straight up lie.
I’m also putting Kendra Jade’s post behind a cut on here, just in case she deletes or edits anything out in her blog.

Lukas Rossi is a chump

If you thought Solange Knowles acted like a spoiled brat this past week on Fox News in Vegas, then you don’t want anything to do with Lukas Rossi. I would have taken video of how pompous he acted, but no video or pictures were allowed during his set.

I do not plan to see Lukas Rossi or his band Stars Down perform ever again. He played a solo acoustic set last night at Bedrock in Baltimore. He was an arrogant chump. He demanded the audience be totally silent during his entire set. He acted like a complete asshole. His porn star wife/manager was telling everyone they could not meet him and that people would have to pay $50 if they wanted to talk to him. (Surprisingly, no one stood in line to buy any merch or to meet him. Who wants to meet an ego maniac?) And she had a friend of hers walking around spying on people. If anyone was caught saying anything bad about Lukas in a private conversation, they were kicked out. It didn’t help me feel any better that his female friends were walking around mean mugging my friend Mandi and I.

After his first song he looked at me and my friend Shelley while he asked the crowd not to talk at all. We were not being loud at all by any means. We said hello to each other and hugged but apparently we were being extremely rude. And throughout the set, people were still talking – definitely not a loud level – and he said "I still hear some talky talkertons in the room. Please do not speak while I perform" in a pissed off tone. People stopped talking or clapping in between his songs so then he was like "Are you guys still there"?

The guy had absolutely no sense of humor when people said stuff to him. And with him giving the audience a hard time, a couple guys started heckling him. And rightfully so. Honestly, I think the crowd should have been much meaner to him. Several people left because of how he was acting.
A cell phone went off between songs and a guy jokingly said "Turn off your cell phone! We have to have absolute silence during the set!" And Rossi was pissed. Hahaha. Come on. That was funny. But nope, he didn’t think so.
It wasn’t just the fact that he wanted total silence. He just generally acted like he was on his high horse the way he carried himself and the other things he said between songs.

Bedrock isn’t a big venue. The place wasn’t even half full. And most of the people who were there weren’t even from Baltimore. They were Canadian fans who have been following him for whatever reason. He had no right to act the way he did. I have briefly met Tommy Lee, one of his former bandmates, who is obviously way more famous than him. And Tommy did not act like this at all and did not charge me money to talk to him.

Some of the people who were there didn’t even know who he was. They were there for the opening bands and stayed for him. They seemed to like him until he started acting ridiculous. Then they left. So he lost fans thanks to his attitude.

Lukas acted like he has never played a show or a bar in his life. You do not demand complete silence. I could maybe understand if the audience was being completely roudy and ridiculously loud. But this was not the case at all. You could still definitely hear Lukas with no problem whatsoever. I have played countless shows were the crowd was talking. I want the crowd to have a good time. People can still listen.
But I have played solo sets where the crowd was completely silent. You know how I did it? I did not demand it. I captivated the audience and so they wanted to be completely quiet. It was their choice. They talked during the performers before and after me but did not speak while I played. It wasn’t because I told them to shut up. Otherwise, I would have rightfully been booed and heckled.

 
Most of my friends are musicians. I am friends with some well-known people – people way more known than Rossi. I’m good friends with those who are considered arrogant and people ask how I can be friends with them. But this guy! This guy takes the cake. This guy makes the people I know look like gentlemen. I am used to how some musicians can be and their attitude. But they are nothing compared to Rossi. This guy seems to have little appreciation for his fans. He’s losing the few he has.
 

How was Rossi’s performance? Does anyone really even care at this point?

This is Mandi and I after his set:

Haha!

On a happier note, the staff at Bedrock are awesome and Jaesa makes one great amaretto sour!  =) With two cherries!

It keeps getting better!

It’s like you’re going out of your way to make it fail.
And you gave me a hard time about my choices!
