oscar ’08 set-up is underway!


hey hey! after the three day weekend it was a little hard to get back in the groove – especially with the shitty weather (in all of my almost seven years of living in los angeles – this winter has been the worst – i hate it – i need sun!) and although i’m getting psyched for the oscars this coming sunday – i can’t deal with hollywood blvd being blocked off – it’s a total pain in the ass – the traffic is just going to get worse! by the weekend it will be almost total lockdown – which is fine since i’ll be busy prepping to live blog the big event – i’m thinking to kick that off starting at 3pm (6pm on the east coast) below are few pictures i snapped when i was walking home for lunch earlier today – hopefully the weather will be nice that day – but just in case of rain they’ll be prepared!



right now i’m watching american idol – all twelve boys are singing – tomorrow it’s the girls’ turn – on thursday 2 guys & 2 gals will be leaving! so far i’m most impressed with david archuleta, jason castro and hottie michael johns – yet most of the performances tonight have been fairly forgettable – there’s a couple of guys that are perfect candidates to leave the competition (calling jason yeager) maybe the girls will be better? the show is such a commitment though – two hours tonight – two tomorrow – plus an hour on thursday – phew! popbytes over & out for tonight – xxoo!
