a week and a half ago these film makers from utah read the new times article about me. and decided to make a documentary about me and my life the past few years pre-mission. they video taped my last few preformances and did a lot of interviews with me and friends and such. if i didnt get a chance to eat with you or hang out with you this past month, this has a lot to do with it.
the film makers are coming back in a month or so to collect video tapes and pictures from shows and such i gave them a list of phone numbers for them to contact, so if you get a call from them thats how they got the number. and if you have pictures, videos, information that should be included in this film about me call them and let them know. 801-259-5151. i want them to have as much information on every aspect of my life as possible.
yesterday i devoted an entire day to my best frien emily. it was wonderful, we ate a huge breakfast at "the place" and i showed her how to update thegoodshows.com and we watched the tom green show and reno 911. and we ate a fancy dinner at houstens with steph+jrc and andrew+tristan. ate some gelato. and got a sick photobooth strip. we put it in the trunkspace "yearbook" so go check it out next time you go there. also look for the "farewell" strip i made that i hid in the book somewhere.
then a wonderful wonderful night was spent with bridget, but i will keep those memories to myself.
today is my last day in phoenix for two years. i am spending it by getting packed and mailing off cds and getting lunch with jennefir lilly. if you want to say goodbye just "one more time" for some reason come by the willow house today around 4:00pm or so. i will be there for a bit.
