New Fanlisting Coming!

Yeah that’s right you read it correct. Let me tell you what happened. I was talking to Chris, and he asked if I had seen the American TV show Big Bang Theory, well I said no cos I’m not in America so I don’t really keep up with the new shows, and well being here the TV isn’t that exciting, I mean if it wasn’t for American shows it would be a lot more boring, but yes they do get American shows here so yay I have to say there are some really good British TV shows, few but still good. Ok so moving on. So I said not about Big Bang Theory. he’s like, “You should find it on the internet and watch it, it’s really good. So I said why not! Okay just on the first episode alone, I found my favorite character. I really like nerds so that would be who? Lol yeah that’s right! Sheldon Cooper!!! Omg I love that guy so much!!!! So I thought hmm I wonder if he has a fanlisting I would so join it. Well I went to look and wow I was surprised, nothing! So yeah I couldn’t resist and I had to submit for it and well I got the listing, yay! So that will be coming soon. I’ve watched all 18 episodes and I just love the show! Another one of my favorite “nerd type” shows is The IT Crowd, omg that’s so hilarious as well. So like i said, be looking for the Jim Parsons (Sheldon Cooper) fanlisting soon!

The other day I watched Definitely, Maybe it was such a cute story. Yes I watch other stuff apart from Horror, but I have to say if I had a choice. I’d definitely pick Horror over anything else, I’m obsessed about it, I don’t know why. Does that make me morbid? Not really, just a Horror Film Fanatic!!! I think :P, So needless to say last night I watched The Killing Floor, here is a link to the trailer of this film check it out, I really liked that film! If you like thriller type films, that’s one for you to put on your list, as well as The Echo, which hasn’t came out yet, but it’s a Japanese remake of a film by the name of Sagew, really good check out the trailer here. Oh I haven’t got my “package” yet, but I’m really excited to do so. I hope they do give me tickets to see The Bangles for another show, that would be so awesome!! Right! Well that’s all for now, I got stuff I need to do I better get to it. Have a great week!

I Won The Contest!!~

Yes!! I won, I’m excited and well I have a lot of emotions going through my mind, if you only knew haha. But yeah I was so shocked when I got the email, at first I seen an email in there with the subject Bataclan, but it didn’t quite hit me yet, I think I thought it was spam of some sort, really I thought that lol. So I ignored the email for like a day, but then the following day when I logged into to read my email it stood out to me again, and thought I better check and delete if it is spam, but it wasn’t lol! I opened it and I was so thrilled at what at the realisation that it was about the contest, I began to read it and noticed that it began to sound like they are thanking me for participating, here is the line that lead me to believe that:

Dear Emily,

On behalf of the Bangles, thank you so much for participating in the Bataclan Paris Banner Click Street Team Contest.

So naturally I thought aww that’s nice of them to email me and thank me for participating, which i was hoping they would do anyway. Then I went on to read the next line which said:

Your banner has generated the most clicks and you have finished the contest in First Place.

At this point my heart leaped out of my chest lol I got very excited I thought OMG First place??? This is fantastic!! This is awesome!! This is like a dream come true lol. I continued to read on, and it said this next:

Unfortunately, despite everyone’s fantastic efforts, the Bataclan concert has been canceled, so we are unable to offer you a meet-and-greet at this time.

We are very sorry for this turn of events.

The high I experienced, just dropped to the floor lol. I was like Noooooooooo no no no. Awww bummer arggg ahhhh why why why. Ok so after feeling down about that, I continued to read and it said this:

In the meantime, we are putting together a Bangles package for you with a tee shirt, CDs and some other collectible items.

I thought aww well that’s nice of them to send me something, but I’m not sure how to interpret this, the beginning of this line says “In the meantime” does that mean they still plan on giving me the original prize? They just don’t know when or where? I’m not sure because initially reading that I didn’t think much of those 3 words, until like yesterday. And I know myself, I usually just brush things away as “they know what they are doing”. But should I question them about that. My friend Chris told me, how can a few prizes really replace such an experience as going somewhere you dreamt of going all your life, and seeing them in concert and having backstage passes to meet them!! That is not replaceable, which I have to agree on, but I don’t really feel I have any control over what they do to be quiet honest. I’m just happy to know that all the promotion I did, helped me win and all the people that clicked for me, you are all amazing. That’s how the ball bounces sometimes right? What would you do if you got that email, would you question the “In the meantime” bit of it? Or just brush that aside as if it’s just something they need to say. I would be fantastic though if like next year I got a chance to see them in Paris. I did check their tour and it was not on their tour schedule so yeah it as canceled and I’m not sure why, I can only assume they didn’t sell enough tickets. That’s what happened, but soon as I get whatever they are sending I will take some pictures of it and post it. I told BFF that I would give her the t-shirt if they send one because she likes The Bangles as well and she was the one I was going to take with me to the concert, so I want her to have something also

Wow this got so long huh? Again thank you so much everyone for clicking for me, without you I would of not won this contest, you are all too awesome. If I can return the favor let me know Anyway I just ran across a site with a music video and just discovered this band, I love when that happens. I discover a new band yay! So enjoy the video! We The Kings are FTW!!
