Ohh My Aching Bones: A Rant

































Yesterday, I went to Hurley's Walk the Walk fashion competition, and let me just say it's not one of the best events I've been to. It was unbelievably hot and there were half naked sweaty teenagers rubbing past you to get through the immense crowds. My sister, my BFF, and I edged ourselves near the front of the runway/stage near a group of obnoxious teens. What drew me off the wall was that they began smoking and asking other people if they had weed, not aware of the fact the rest of the nonsmokers would suffer secondhand smoking. We were just appalled at what our generation had come to, so we just bailed and went near the back. Even in the back people were smoking pipes and such; from the back we could see smoke rising in particular areas (one in the area we were just in). Nobody, not even parents nor staff did anything. The music was all rap (which I detest except if it's Kanye), but Shwayze was great. During Shwayze's performance, a catfight broke out between two girls near the front (also the area we were in before) and Shwayze stopped the performance to get them to stop. Oh the event was hosted by Sal Masekela and the celeb panel of judges consisted of : Scott Eastwood (son of Clint Eastwood), Wilmar Valderama, and 90210's Adam Gregory just to name a few. Lincoln HighSchool from San Diego won the competition. I came home sore and tired. I ached all over. That was my rant of the day. Hopefully, there shouldn't be anymore rant posts.

mtvU Sunblock Music Festival


The festival starts tomorrow, July 24th. The two headliners Boys Like Girls and Gym Class Heroes. The special guests include The Veronicas, Never Shout Never, & last but not least, well atleast in my opinion, The Academy Is.

This festival sounds absolutely great, right? Well... there's a problem. This festival is only going to be in four cities:

  • 07/24/09 - Agawam, MA @ Six Flags New England
  • 07/25/09 - Gilford, NH @ Meadowbrook - US Cellular Pavillion
  • 07/27/09 - Baltimore, MD @ Pier Six Concert Pavillion
  • 07/30/09 - Eureka, MO @ Six Flags in St. Louis
If any of these places are near you, lucky you, if not, you might be just as disappointed as I am.
I don't even understand how these random cities were even chosen. I've never even heard of any of these cities. How are you going to have a festival and not come to California?!! And as far as I know, these places aren't even anywhere near the West so that sucks for have of the people in the U.S. :)

Stay Classy San Diego ;)

YaY!!!

I just want to say, " Yay! We're blogging."
Quynh and I have had this blog created for a while.
We started with an idea of a joint blog. Then, we officially made the account.
It took us a while to get the whole joint thing going and get the right look for our blog.
Now we are finally writing on this thing. I'm pretty happy about that.

Private: The Webseries

(Paradise Lost is the most recent novel from the Private series)

Okay, the Private series are the best book series I have ever read so far in my entire life, and now they are making it into a web series! If you have never heard of the Private series, you have no idea on what you're missing out on. To brief it up it's about how a middle-class girl, Reed Brennan, enrolls in the elite Easton Academy boarding school to spice up her life. She encounters the Billings girls, the group everyone wants to be, and joins their clique. Little does she know she's in for the ride of her life. Drama follows everywhere she goes. There's murder, jealousy, lust, pyschopaths, deaths, drugs, sex, booze, etc. Reed has to pay the cost of being a Billings. Again, it's an amazing series and you should check it out if you already haven't. The first episode is the casting call and 3 girls vie it out to become one of the Billings girl, Kiran Hayes, a jet-setting model. I can't seem to put up the video but if you go to http://privatetheseries.com/ or http://teen.com/private you will be able to view the video.

Hurley US Open of Surfing: Hurley's Walk the Walk Fashion Show



During July 18-26, Huntington Beach hosts the US Open Surf every year. I'm not a surfer, but I come out to watch the event. There are concerts during the event at the Hurley Microphone for Youth Stage. Mostly I just come for TeenVogue's Fashion Live, but I don't know what the reason is but they are not doing it this year. Instead Hurleys' Walk the Walk Fashion Show is taking place instead. Talented and creative highschool students from across the nation come together in this ultimate fashion showdown to be able to showcase an original new line for Hurley. Fighting for the new line are Huntington Beach, Dana Hills, San Clemente, Fountain Valley, and Lincoln (San Diego) highschools. There will be a panel of celebrity judges and also a $10,000 donation. The fashion show is on Friday, July 24. Be sure to check it out and see which highschool makes it on top.
