shake booty in music videos. check. check. check. check. and check. my master list of things to do in life is speckled with adventurous and abnormal activities. i like to try things at least once, but likely two or three times before i decide if i want to go on with the show (first impressions are bogus). before back up dancers married pop stars (cris judd and kevin federline) and became hot stars in hit sitcoms (courteney cox), being a music video extra/back up dancer was boring and a relatively easy way to make money. let's not talk about rock stars, glitter, wigs and the mundane life of a music video extra. let's talk about how the internet is a wonderful thing and how sometimes, it brings old friends back into the fold.
brian recently found me online. a long time ago, he used to shake his butt for money too. we spent countless hours killing time together for about half a year. we always had a raucous time together but were pretty much just friends on set. he's still living in los angeles. a decade later, he's also still rolling film, but is now older, happier and much funnier. if there ever was a life that had funny twists and turns, it was his. witty. optomistic. sarcastic. wise in a weird way. i always enjoyed chatter with him.
brian told me about all the things he's been up to in the last 10 years. one after another, he spewed stories that had me rolling my eyes while simultaneously laughing my ass off. i told him he had to blog about it. for someone who lives in the undisputed entertainment capitol of the world and who has worked in entertainment, he is sometimes so very clueless about popular culture. it gets him into trouble. i can't wait to catch up with brian in real life sometime soon. for now, i'll stick to reading his blog, life o'brian. monty python would be proud. giggle away!
