Ellen, can you hear me?

Dang it you guys. How come I've never wanted anything so badly in my whole life?? I really, really, really... REALLY, want to be Ellen's new DJ. I mean, come on. Music is my favorite thing ever. There's nothing more I'd rather do than sit there and listen to music, discover new stuff, dance to music, run to music, film music videos. It's a sickness and I don't want the cure! Right you guys!? I love music more than I love acting. More than I love my parents. More than I love a cure for AIDS.

Am I sounding a bit desperate?

Yeah well, aparently that's how I sounded on my first take of the Ellen video I shot. So we're reshooting and I'm adding some pictures of me DJing. But so far the choreographed dance to "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" is done, which I think I mentioned yesterday. And it is amazing! Here's a little teaser to whet yer appetite until I can show you the whole video.


Along with the video I have to send a CD of music I would play. HARDER TASK THAN YOU'D IMAGINE. I have to think of stuff that she'd actually play on her show, and that I can imagine her gettin down to. And also music that I love. Because I think it'd be fake to send stuff that you think she'd like if you don't actually like it. Right? Good thing Ellen and I like the same music.

So the stuff can't be overplayed (I love the new song S.O.S. by Rihanna but they played her out to that song twice this week already. I can only imagine it's because she actually doesn't have a DJ there discovering new music for her to jam to?) but also stuff that's not completely obscure people would be like "what the hell is this?"

With the help of my boyfriend we narrowed the list down from 118 songs to 91 songs to now 22. I have to narrow that down even further to about 15 songs (that's about how many will fit on a CD these days, yes?). It's NERVE WRACKING!! Taking a song off the list is like cutting off body parts. It's hard, guys. Really hard.

I'm hoping to have everything done by Monday so I can send it off to LaLa Land. Guys, I really do want this so badly.

Oh, side note, I watched her show this week and she had a new girl on the turntables and I was like "OH NO!!! SHE FOUND SOMEONE ALREADY!!" but it was just Spinderella filling in for Tony. Phew!!

I'll keep you posted!! Send me some good dancin vibes!

You should be able to get 19 songs on a cd. Unless they're superlong or something.
If you get hired - nay, WHEN you get hired - I will take complete credit. Just so you know....

Well of course! And if... nay, WHEN I get hired... I will wear a t-shirt with your face on it and kitten ears.

I love that "the new girl" ended up being Spinderella.
