What about the boat times?

Oz’s newest tattoo makes me really happy.

Normally his tattoos involve death and destruction, but this is a funny one. When it’s finished, it’s going to be a color portrait of Old Gregg from the Mighty Boosh with a bottle of Bailey’s next to it pouring out the phrase, “What about the boat times?” I love it!

Have no idea what I’m talking about? Do yourself a favor and watch this video:

Still thinking to yourself, what the fuck? That’s O.K., I did the same thing after watching Old Gregg for the first time. Trust me, give it another chance and you’re sure to be quoting it soon. In any case you’ll never think of a mangina the same way again.

Wave Gotik Treffen: Let’s go!

I’ve wanted to go to Europe for a very long time. I find myself becoming extremely jealous when I hear other people’s tales of backpacking and European adventures. Oz and I often discuss going to Scotland so he can visit his home country — his mother’s maiden name is Dewar, as in Dewar’s scotch whiskey.

It was a strange morning, yet kind of normal for us. We listened to Darkwave, VNV Nation, and Johnny Vicious house mixes while I made breakfast. Then, Oz brought up Wave Gotik Treffen, the world’s largest festival for “dark culture,” which takes place in Leipzig, Germany every May 21-24.

Upon first glance, it looks like a Hot Topic festival.

Smiles: a rare thing at WGT.

But this is the real deal, folks.

At Wave Gotik Treffen, there are a variety of people. From Victorian Goths to gutter punks, to steampunks, there’s a little something for everyone. But it’s not just about the clothes and make-up, it’s about the music. WGT offers more than 150 bands and artists from various backgrounds  such as Gothic rock, EBM, Industrial, Noise, Darkwave, Neofolk, Neoclassical, Medieval Music, Experimental, Gothic metal, Deathrock and Punk.

Oz and I are both kind of scared of the festival, but we’re also very intrigued. I’d love to go experience something completely different like that, if only for the fact that I could blog about it after. Plus, Oz looks great in eyeliner.

Wedding Dance!

This past weekend I went to two weddings.  The first wedding was for two friends of mine that I went to high school with, Carissa and D-Rob (short for Daniel Robert).  Since Oz was a groomsman in the wedding, I had the inside scoop on what would go down during the ceremony:

(Unfortunately, the video got cut off, but Oz did a cartwheel and an air split during the intro.)

The bride decided that they would dance down the aisle just like the really famous YouTube video that was parodied on a recent episode of “The Office.” Only they didn’t use the same song, they used Jay Sean’s “Down,” which I think was a good choice.

The reception was fun, it was like a mini high school reunion. There was an open bar (FYI: Seagram’s grape vodka and Sprite taste just like a Pixie stick), a photo booth, and a crazy DJ that looked exactly like Doc Brown from “Back to the Future.” We danced all night and a good time was had by all.

I received two consecutive picture messages on my phone today and this is what they contained:

This is my boyfriend Oz, standing in the Frederick’s of Hollywood dressing room, and this is his Halloween costume this year, Naughty Nurse. Last year it was Sexy Police Officer and with each year there seems to be less and less clothing involved. What will I do? Wear scrubs and go as the doctor, of course!

We got a picture of Oz with some actual cops at the street party last year:

OZ-COPSThey were uncomfortable to say the least.
