Goodbye Summer

If Christmas is the greatest time of the year, then Labor Day is the worst. It signifies the end of summer, and, of course, the start of school. No, I’m just kidding. We’re in college now, so school is exciting and fun! Right?

Josh left yesterday to return to New York, and I’m heading back to Savannah in less than a week. Time to get out of Scripps Ranch Mode and back into College Mode…it’s still strange.

This has been a lovely summer. We had lots of time to just hang out, chat, and craft. Compared to last summer, when we made a 90 minute musical and went to Seattle, these past three months have been pretty quiet. But that’s not a bad thing. It was a summer of self-discovery and emotional awakenings.

To make up for the complete lack of posts, I’ve made this snazzy slideshow of photos from Summer 2010, and things which represent it! (Some photos I’ve also stolen from Annie, Emily, Hilary and Nishita.)

Now, can I be real honest with you for a moment? I think that we’ve all known that this is coming. Bosh With Elaine and Josh is dying. I know, it’s sad. But we had a good two year run, right? I hate to say it, but it’s just true. People get cut, blogs die, that’s life.  We will definitely try to return to this blogging format one day, but for now, between school and everything else, it’s just a little tricky.

I almost hate to admit this, but we’ve moved to Tumblr. Yeah, I know. But, to be honest, I actually like Tumblr a lot! So please follow us there, and keep up with our favorite black and white photographs and song lyrics! And don’t worry, we’ll still Twitter-ing, too.

So thanks for reading these weird posts about Britney Spears and Showgirls. Until next time…

Love,

Poor Bosh with Elaine and Josh. Poor, poor Bosh with Elaine and Josh.

I feel so bad about neglecting this blog for an entire month. I shouldn’t have kept you waiting…but I’m here now.

It’s been a good summer so far. Natch, it’s nice to be reunited with my fam and besties, and we’ve been having lots of fun.

Josh and I have been good little college students, and we both have internships, and are taking a class at the local community college. (Although tonight we’re ditching to go to Kathy Griffin’s book signing. Shhhh.)

TBH, being home is kind of confusing. Sometimes I forget that whole year at college even happened and it just feels like it will be summer forever. But alas, only a month and half more.

Regrettably, I don’t have any really big exciting news to share. No feature length films or theatrical endeavors this summer. We did, however, celebrate the opening of Britney’s limited edition clothing line for Candie’s, only at Kohl’s!

We got there an hour before Kohl’s opened…and surprisingly we were the only ones! But that’s why we’re Brit’s numba 1 fans.

But otherwise, we’re just doing the usual: crafting, eating California burritos and watching bad movies.

May all your summers’ be splendid, and hopefully, we’ll write something more meaningful soon.

Summer Break

I am finally down to the last week of my spring quarter, and summer is just six short days away. I still have to pack my whole room away, study for final exams and say goodbye to the HUNDREDS of new besties I’ve made…but for right now, I think I’ll repeat my On Spring Break post, but this time, with Britney gifs.

Me, thinking about all the crafting and other fun activities that we’re going to do over spring break:

Walking out of class on the last day:

Bored, on the bus ride, then airplane ride home:

Gettin’ down at parties:

Just generally having a fun, San Diego summer with my besties, going to Hooters, talking to spirits and having sleepovers:

Six more days!

Love,

Elaine

Inspirations

Our third essay in Composition is supposed to be ten to twelve pages long on the topic of “who is your inspiration, and how have they played in a part in you pursuing what it is that you are pursing?” (I’m sure that there’s a more elegant way to say that.)

It doesn’t necessarily have to be why you’re at SCAD – the professor clarified this after someone raised their hand and said, “But my muse is Jesus Christ” (I think I might have audibly LOLed) – but, that would probably play into it.

So I figured that I would make a list of possibilities that I have to choose from to help me narrow it down and get started.

John Cameron Mitchell

I think that we all know by now how I fee about JCM (and OMG how cute is he in that picture?!) and while I could definitely write twelve pages on him and and the pretend relationship that I like to imagine we have, I already wrote about him and Hedwig for my first essay.

John Waters

JWat is a fairly viable option for this. In fact, he might be the best option. He’s a strange little man with even stranger obsessions. However, it’s possible that I’ll be immediately expelled from the film program for citing him as inspiration. Besides, JWat left (read: was expelled for smoking pot in his dorm room) NYU, where he would have studied film, within his first month there in order to go out and make movies on his own.

Andy Warhol

SO FUCKING CLICHE I DON’T EVEN WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. Plus, let’s be honest here. His movies are fucking boring.

Todd Solondz

I have always imagined that any movies I write/make would be closest in tone to those made by Mr. Solondz. I really don’t know much about him…maybe this is a good opportunity to learn more?

Eddie Izzard

Okay, now this has just become a list of people I like. But while we’re talking about Eddie, last night I watched his documentary BELIEVE: The Eddie Izzard Story. Now, I know that you’re thinking, “I luv Eddie, but why did this bitch need a documentary?” and I have to admit that I thought the same thing. But after watching it for free online (courtesy of EpixHD) I found it to be funny, sweet, and surprisingly touching. My favorite part? That Eddie missed the Emmy ceremony where he won two Emmy’s for Dressed to Kill, to be on location shooting All the Queens Men! LOLx1000!!

Britney Jean Spears

Similar to the person who asked about using Jesus Christ for their paper.

In conclusion…I don’t know who I’m going to choose. But I have a few weeks to figure it out.

Best Wishes,

Elaine

Fashion Trend Alert!

What do Tim Curry and Britney Spears have in common? Besides for being objects of worship, they’re also making stains fashionable. In a world where people are too scared to go out with something on their clothing, Tim and Brit and standing up and saying, “I have stained my clothes and I am proud.” We would be wise to follow their example.

Tim Curry's famous bleach stain, as witnessed by Josh and Elaine at the LA Festival of Books in May of 2008.

Britney Spears, shopping in January of 2010 with two stains on her top.

We will continue to cover this fearless fashion trend and let you know how it progresses in American culture. Stain on, brothers and sisters. Stain on.

2010 Resolutions

Well, here I am in the great state of Georgia. Alone. In my dorm room. (Don’t worry, I had breakfast with a friend and even took the ten minute drive with her to South Caroline to visit her horse this morning.) But anyways, I figured that since I have a couple hours between possible social interactions, I would write down some New Years resolutions. You can still do that after New Years Eve, right?

  1. Keep a little, hand written journal and write what happened every day. So many little things happen and then they just disappear after you forget them, so I thought that this would be a good way to remember. Like today I went to CVS and bought Pop Tarts. I wouldn’t want to ever forget that.  (So far, going good.)
  2. Visit Club SCAD on occasion. (Not yet. But hey, I just got here last night.)
  3. Try and make some new friends/improve current friendships here at college. (South Carolina was a good start!)
  4. Continue to spread the message of Britney Jean Spears to the masses. (I wore my Britney scarf today.)
  5. Find a wonderful roomie(s) for next year. (Possibly already successful!)

And I guess that’s all can think of so far. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

Perhaps Josh will add his to this since he has another two weeks to sit at home and cuddle with his dogs.

Cheers,

Elaine

2009 Retrospective

Looking back on 2009, this was truly a year of epic proportions in our lives. These are the big events:

I’d say we got a lot of shit done. I mean, The Circus alone would have made 2009 the best year ever, but throw in graduating from high school, and you’re set! And there were so many little things that happened this year, too. Our first cigarette (Camel Menthol), sleepovers during the summer, Obsessed starring Beyoncé Knowles, sitting next to Alexa Vega at the REPO! The Genetic Opera screening…I can’t get over how good 2009 was.

I guess I’ll be profound for a minute and say that we changed a lot, too. I mean, we started college. It’s still very strange and new. I’m pleased that despite living so far apart Josh and I have managed to maintain our BFF-ship, but it’s only winter break, so we’ll see how much longer that can last…

So, yeah. That was our 2009. The year of Britney and beginnings.

Here’s to an equally eventful 2010,

Elaine
