A LONG DAY’S BLOG

Posted in Uncategorized by Shira with View Comments

Feb2008 27

Rockin’ out in my American Apparel California Fleece Track Jacket. (If you haven’t noticed from recent posts- I’ve been having way to much fun with my Photo Booth application)

I spent the entire day shooting a segment for LX TV/KNBC on L.A.’s big Yoga Vs. Pilates debate. I know, my life is hard!

Just finished watching American Idol- which is part work, part addiction. Thank god for tivo!
FYI- If you forget to schedule your tivo/dvr and you’ve already left the house, don’t fret, here’s a look at how you can record your favorite shows with your cell phone! (FOR TIVO, FOR DVR’S)

My favorite line from tonight had to be from Paula Abdul to the AMAZING David Archuleta:

“I want to dangle you in my rear-view mirror.”

POST-OSCAR BUZZ

Posted in Uncategorized by Shira with View Comments

- Paris Hilton dating Nicole Richie’s brother-in-law basically, Benji Madden. Way to stay in the headlines after one of the biggest nights in Hollywood that didn’t even include her- now that takes talent!

- Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Garner’s awkward encounter with Garey Busey who was on something or simply off his meds:

- Ben Affleck’s surprise appearance with (on) Jimmy Kimmel:

I love how the most talked about stories today basically had nothing to do with the winners!

OSCAR MOMENTS

Posted in Uncategorized by Shira with View Comments

Watching the Oscars at the 4 Seasons with my friend Katrina from First Look Studios.

Just watched the Oscars, which for a big 80th b-day was pretty uneventful.
No big aha moments, no great Oscar speeches or surprises.

Have we all gotten over it? Probably not, because the Oscars are such a big part of Hollywood and loved by the American public. I must say though, it was pretty obvious there was something missing from this year’s big awards show. A je ne sais quoi, as the french would say.

My favorite moment had to be while watching the post coverage on ABC. The “news reporter” introduced a fashion shot of Jennifer Hudson and said it was Beyonce Knowles. Haha! See? This is why entertainment reporters are important people!

Check out my mobile video blog for a fun video from the blue carpet at today’s Film Independent Spirit Awards.

We were placed in the middle of the line on the carpet, so unfortunately there were a lot of celeb snubs. The glass half full outlook of that is, at least it’s somewhat entertaining to watch stars completely ignore reporters as they scream random things to get their attention. Woohoo to that!

I did get to chat with some great celebs though including, Forest Whitaker, Rainn Wilson (who hosted the show), Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, Ellen Page, Jason Reitman and many others nominated.


It was freezing though and started to pour halfway through the event, which forced a lot of guests to run for cover inside and not hang on the carpet. The biggest appearance of the night was Brangelina. Angelina was showing off her new baby bump. They both radiated this energy of fame and hotness!! They literally looked statuesque. I swear, if we had to pick two humans to remain on the earth to procreate, I nominate them.

Is it just me or is he doing a 70s thang?

My prediction of what couples will be gracing the carpet this year.

Finally the segment has an embed feature- never been more excited to say that word: EMBED!

I got this cool little gold jacket, but it looks like I’m a hunchback in the video. i swear, I was sitting up straight. Damn you cameras!!

FRIDAYYYY

Feb2008 22

Getting my hair done right now, so I’ll be somewhat presentable for IFC’s Independent Spirit Awards tomorrow.

Woohoo! It’s Friday, but I’m still working the entire weekend.
It’s been a crazy week of shooting every day for LX TV. I also got to cover the premiere of Penelope on Wednesday for Movies.com, and shot a fun segment for Foxnews.com’s “Lips & Ears” that’ll be up shortly.
Today, I got to battle it out with Marc Rudov on FNC’s ” Your World”. The subject? The feminization of men on American Idol. (huh? exactly) That interesting video will be up later tonight too.

Do you believe in them?

This is what mine said today:

Taurus
Agree to disagree, if need be, to keep the peace. You are richly rewarded for your understanding and patience. No one can do it quite like you.

COMEDY!

I used to date a comedian, which has since scarred me from voluntarily going to acomedy show. However, my visit to the Improv last night turned out to be a blast. The first show I went to included all female standups, who were actually good! One of my favorite lines was about Britney Spears being a terrorist and distracting us from the issues of the world. Now that makes sense!

Then, I decided to stay and watch my friend Ben Gleib perform. As I was about to leave from a comedy overdose, who shows up other than Dane Cook to do a surprise performance. I just had to stay!

Now off to do a full day shoot on L.A.’s metro gold line (yes people, we do have public transportation here) for LX TV. Adieu!
