HOW I SAW LADY GAGA LAST NIGHT

Hey,guys!

Once again – yes,I went to Lady Gaga #BTWBall show in Riga last night. And that shit was INTENSE.
I know a lot of you have been asking me how was the show,to tell you everything,how do I feel now and so on,so I’ll do my best to serve you all possible information and in-tell that I can!

And warning – this post might turn out as long as an essay,so…  read on your own risk,everyone! 🙂

Alright,here’s the basics: So,we had only standing tickets,no seats or anything. (The chairs in the arena were specifically removed,just for the Gaga show!) There were 3 zones – The cheapest one C,middle zone B,the closest to the stage – A,and then there was Monster Pit by the very stage. I had tickets for zone B,which meant I’m going to be standing right in the middle of the arena.

Also,you know how you have to get there starting 8 AM to get the chance to be in Monster Pit? Yeah,well I’ll get back to that later,too.

The doors opened for people to entry the arena starting 5 PM – the show was supposed to start at 7.

(Irrelevant information here – since my dearly beloved “friend” bailed on me,I went with my mom. YES I did,so what?!)

So,despite my mom was incredibly sceptic to going to 5 PM and kept whining all the way till we got to the arena – ”come on,and then you’ll just stand there till the show will start? From 5 to 7? You’ll get tired,honey AND SO WILL I! I’m not as young as I look!” –  we went there with the intention to be there at 5. And we were – there was sort of a (Not VERY long line but it was long) line already but then they opened another gate and we just quickly went there,s we got inside within like the first 20 minutes (and they opened like 10 mins late,for  the record).

While we were standing in the line,we got treated with macaroons and coke. HOW AWESOME WAS THAT!

(I had never eaten a macaroon in my entire life before and to be honest – probably won’t eat it again. I think I had some weird allergic reaction or something,because the minute I swallowed it,I felt like it’s going to come right back out,if you know what I mean!)

And by the way,here’s something else: And before you skip this ‘irrelevant’ information,just know – THIS WILL BE VERY RELEVANT LATER ON. So,read!!

While we were on our way to the venue,my classmate called me. Seriously,though.

She was like “so,are you going to that concert today?” and I was honestly so confused,she had never EVER called me before,we don’t even speak to each other at school! At least not very much anyway. (I kept wondering where the hell did she get my number?)

And I was like ”what concert?” (might seem as stupidest thing I could’ve said but mind you, I was confused,people!)

and then there was “blahblahblah” in the middle and she told me she’s going too,would I want to meet up,so I told her I’ll see her arround.

ALRIGHT > now back to the moment when we were standing in the line.

So,we got to the security check,he didn’t even check that much,I just opened one of my pockets of my bag and that was basically it. No hardcore check or anything,thanks God (for personal reasons).

We got inside by the time it was 5:30 – B and A zones were separated with some sort of a small fence or something,no idea how to explain. My surprise was that there were barely any people comming that early to our zone – we got standing spaces right by the fence! And the stage seemed very close actually,since A zone was pretty small. So yeah,me and mom hung out by the fence (my mom even made friends during the show by the way – DON’T ask me,I know it sounds weird!) and BOOM! my classmate was calling again.

NOW COMES THE VERY IMPORTANT PART,GUYS.

She was like “Where are you?” and I was like “by the B zone,you?” She’s like “do you see the stage?” And I’m like,’well duhh” and she’s like “I’m right by the stage” and I was like “what?!” thinking,how the hell did she get there!? After another minute of embarassing confusement she rised her hand up and I saw her,so we continued our phone talk. I asked how did she get THAT close to the stage (and yeah,I was so confused that I even forgot the fact she was standing in the monster pit! For me it was just like “by the stage”) and she was like “go outside of the arena,you’ll see WC. There’s one guy handing out Monster Pit bracelets,just go and find him,and then come to me here” and I was like “what,wait,how,where,why!?” but I didn’t hesistate,I left my mom by the fence and was like “I’ll be right back” (for some weird reason I took my jacket,though) and went outside the venue to try my luck.

And there he was,that guy. He spoke english though,I walked right up to him and he was like “would you like to be in the Monster Pit?” and I was like “YES JESUS YES I DO I DO” (I felt like I was at a wedding or something because my I DO sounded pretty… orgasmic,if I can say so) and he was like “Well,are you a big Gaga fan?” and THANKS GOD AND THE HIGHER POWER I didn’t get confused there and I was like “Can’t you tell from my T-shirt? I made it myself!” and he was like “Yeah,I can tell” and “alright,here you go” and I was extatic. I was like “THANK YOU” and ran back to the venue. I didn’t get to meet my mom for any more,only after the show ended at like midnight or something.

I honestly felt very bad for that,though – we came together,I dragged her here,especially this early and not to be able to enjoy the show together… It was devastating,in a way.

But I called her from the Monster Pit and she said she was happy for me and told not to worry about her,she was “communicating with those awesome teens beside her” so she was doing pretty good there,thanks God.

So,I met up with my classmate and her sister inside the Pit and we spent the next 1,5h together there,partly standing and looking arround to all those crazily awesome costumes people had there,and partly sitting on the floor because honestly,I couldn’t stand for that long. (I probably would have died if I’d gotten here at 8 AM – poor guys who did! See,this was actually a proof that you can ALWAYS get a Monster Pit bracelet if you’re lucky enough,even if it’s right before the show when you think the Pit thing is over for you!)

Yeah,so we hung out there and then Lady Starlight came out.

Honestly? At first I thought “what the f**k is this thing?” because her show was,well,eccentric. I don’t know. And people weren’t responding very well to her performances,either. I just wanted to literally walk up to her and give her one of those Tumblr stars which say “You tried”. However,she looked pretty nice as a person and I tried my best to cheer on her 🙂

Then THE DARKNESS took over. THEY WERE SENSATIONAL. So amazingly wonderful and perfect. So tallented. Songs were great,too! I have a few videos (taken with my VERY shitty cellphone camera,though) because they were just THAT good. They totally warmed us all up,they were fantastic. I wasn’t even familiar with their music before but now I’m a fan,I’m a fan! They played for like an hour,the guys kept jumping arround and warming us up with their energy and positivity which I thought was so sweet and cool.

Oh and then the shit started. So,they finished at like 8 PM,right. And then – Gaga came up only at 9:10 PM.  So,we waited an hour and 10 minutes and it was the hardest thing to do. We were all tired,my ears were VERY ,how to say… well,I felt like I was half deaf already,because Monster Pit was very close to the sound system (Whatever it’s called) so it was FRIGGIN’ LOUD IN THERE.

Anyways. People kept yelling “GAGA GAGA GAGA” all the time,hoping she’d come out but as I said – an hour went by and we started to get pissed off,to be honest. But then… then the queen took over and it was all good from here.

She started with Government hooker and went arround the Monster Pit on her eclectic horse or something,so we got a VERY close look at her. She was gorgeous and the outfit was VERY creative,to say the least.

Yeah,so the excitement in the pit was phenomenal. But in a good way,you know? Nobody was pushing or anything – in fact,from my opinion the pit was half empty and I couldn’t understand why – and I even had a good space to jump or dance,so it was nice.

Then she sang Born This Way and to be honest,I don’t even remember what was next. I felt like I was going to pass the f**k out from the excitement,emotions and anticipation!

If we speak like that – I feel like I don’t even remember 70% of the show and that has never happened to me before! LIKE,normally I have a really good memory and everything so this is such a surprise for me. If I wouldn’t have any videos,I think I wouldn’t really remember a thing. So weird. I feel mad at myself for that now.

So,yeah annd during the concert…. I just exploded. Obviously,my classmate and her sister weren’t as excited,they kept criticising how “crazy” people were here (IT’S MONSTER PIT,WHAT DID YOU EXPECT) and how someone can go insane just for some singer,so I kind of grew angry on them,to be honest. I moved a little further from them,I mean I was still close but not that close to them. I was here to party,to dance and to celebrate – and I wasn’t going to just stand there and do nothing like they (sort of) did. No hard feelings though.

Anyways! My favourite songs of hers have to be Americano,BTW,and You and I. She nailed them. She was wonderful. And when she sang “Telephone” I was standing SO CLOSE TO HER (to her ass actually,because she rarely turned to face us,she more turned to face the crowd,which meant she was standing with her back on pit,which kind of wasn’t all that great,to be honest),like I stood in the 1st row and I could see her like,UP CLOSE. Like,insanely up close. I even have a video,I’ll post it somewhere soon,I promise.

Oh and she just randomly picked some girl from Monster Pit and was like “You look so beautiful,will you want to come backstage later?” and everyone were just going YEEAAAH and WOOOOOO and suff. I honestly felt happy for that person,whoever it was,I really did!

And she also called out one fan in A zone and was like “I remember you,you used to come to my show in France and give me those sunglasses,I remember your face!” (maybe she didn’t say exactly these words but the thought was the same)

So,yup! And the show went on and she kept dancing and stuff,it felt so nice and she had the most gorgeous smile my eyes have seen. She felt really heartwarm and sweet,she spoke in a very gentle way,so that touched my heart.

And then came the part were people were supposed to throw things/letters to the stage and I was too far to be able to do it. I feel so dissapointed I didn’t get my letter to her,I feel like I sort of failed myself,you know? Oh well. So,that sucked.

But anyways,some guy (or girl?) threw a T-shirt and SHE PUT IT ON! While singing HAIR & YOU AND I,she had it on. That was the sweetest thing,I believe. And she also put on a tiara which some girl threw,so that all was very nice.

And she dedicated one song to someone who was in the 1st row. Bliss.

One of the quotes I remember clearly was “Thank you all for comming tonight,for paying for a ticket,I know that shit was fucking expensive for you but I’m here and I’ll dance and sing and will make this a good night for you and everybody laughted because… Well,the ticket really was pretty f**king expensive,to say the least. At least for us anyway.

And while singing YOU AND I she took someone’s poster and ran arround with it. That somehow touched my heart and it wasn’t even my poster,haha ❤

Then she said “those people who have posters – you all can come backstage later” and again,I was dissapointed that WHY THE HELL DIDN’T I HAVE A POSTER? Ohh uhh. Anyways,NO HARD FEELINGS. At least,I’m trying to.

And then later she told to one another fan who was obviously on fire that “relax,you can come backstage later,too”.

She was so very nice to us all,so smiley and lovey-dovey it was beyond adorable 🙂

Oh yeah. She had those smoke effects going on on the stage and oh boy,they were comming in our faces pretty frequently. That sucked,because 1) we weren’t able to see much because of that and 2) I wanted to cough very often,so that wasn’t so great after all.

And then the last (not the last but you’ll understand what I mean!) song she sang was “Scheise”. And she ended with a “Good night,Riga!” and just went down. And we spent like the next 10 minutes wondering,WTF just happened and is she even going to come back? Some people already went out of the arena,by the way. So,that was one major confusement here and I couldn’t say it was nice.

Then I understood she didn’t even sing Marry The Night or The Edge Of Glory and I felt pretty pissed off,like if she ended like that,it was just not fair at all.

But then,after all the waiting,she went out to perform those two songs and it was great but for me the feeling was gone. I don’t know why,it’s not like I was that pissed off or anything but… I don’t know.

And then she finished it with Marry The Night.  She took a kid with a  green wig on stage (could’ve been 10 years old +/-) and she had a poster sign of “Gaga come here” and she was like “Well,I came,didn’t I” and she asked does the girl speak english (I didn’t hear what the girl said but Gaga repeated “a little bit?”) and she asked her “Do you have a pocket?” and the girl just stood here like “aaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwhhhhhhhhhhhddjgklfhkgjfkll” and Gaga said it twice and then was like “hold on” and put the girls poster in one of that girl’s jacket pockets. This doesn’t really make sense but anyways.

And then she sang,she danced,I was standing right behind both of them (as Gaga + kid were standing not on stage but on that… Oh f**k,how do I explain this? Anyways,she was facing the crowd again and with her back on us,what a surprise here) and tried my best to enjoy this.

And then they both went down and BOOM!,show’s done,bye bye.

So… It was definately one of the best experiences in my entire life but… Something was missing. I thought this show would change my life ( I was really hoping for that to happen) as I’ve heard so many people saying “Seeing Gaga live was lifechanging,she set me free” but I just didn’t feel it – no,I mean I did feel it but not THAT much. I didn’t feel that energy,not till maximum,you know? So,please don’t hate me when I say this but I felt like she wasn’t putting her entire heart in it because I recognized that 70% of what she said was exactly the same as she said in Vilnius the night before (like,EXACTLY the same. Like,word to word. Mhmmm,I don’t really know how I feel about that). Maybe I just shouldn’t have watched that one Lithuania BTWBall video on Youtube. Oh well.

So,yeah and then my mom called me where am I and there was this huge confusement because I didn’t hear her and she didn’t hear me,I was basically yelling like crazy in my cellphone for her to hear and don’t know if she did or not but I said I’ll be by gate 5 doors and repeated that like 10 times hoping she’d hear me and guess she did,as I stood here by the gate,she came up to me within like the next 5 minutes.

Then there was this crazy run from the tram to the centre of the city as it was nearly 0:15 here and the very last transportation back to our city was at 0:25,so that was insane but thanks God,we made it,got home safely,everything went well from that matter.

OH and I didn’t even mention how crowded the tram was! I was riding without a ticket,I confess but it was so crowded that nobody would even be able to check it,like we were standing basically squeezed between each other,so it was insane. But I laughted a lot in there,don’t know why.

My mom said she liked the show. Lady Starlight and The Darkness – not so much,as she was “here for Gaga not them” but she admitted it was an amazing show indeed and said she saw Gaga pretty well from that place where we originally stood at 5:30. I actually think she sometimes saw her even better than we did because she was facing that side a lot and us – not really.

So,that’s my crazy experience – I took some photos,crappy videos and everything (my camera died by the end of the show by the way. Stupid shit technology!),which I am going to put somewhere very soon.

OH and I think I lost my letter I had in my hand. It just fell somewhere I think,I don’t even remember where did I put it or anything,In just remember I had it in my hand for the show and when I was walking outside. It was so weird,after the show I almost felt brainwashed or something,like I don’t remember anything that happened. So weird. I’m actually starting to worry about myself,I normally remember everything very clearly,so this is something new and frightening for me.

Thanks for reading this,everyone! That’s my BTWBall experience in short (IN LONG).

Have you guys been to her shows,as well? Were your experience similar to mine?
Leave a comment,don’t be shy,fellows 😉

I do like watermelons… But not this one.

So,I was eating watermelon the other day and it’s always a mess when it comes to:

1) cutting it,so you wouldn’t cut a piece of your hand with it;

2) eating it,so it wouldn’t drop all over your shirt,your mouth,your hands… Like,everywhere basically!

And then I saw this video on Tumblr (because I tracked the “watermelon” tag the other day. So what,some people track even weirder things there,so this is nowhere creepy yet) and it’s like… I do like watermelons but I would never in my life eat one,which would be served like this.

Enjoy the video,guys!

And I know it’s gross and all,so…. You’re welcome.

sjdhskgjhfkgfkljkl. Hi.

 

 

It’s official,I am having a writers block. 

Can you even have a writers block when all you do is just write a …blog!?

Well,you can and this is all happening to me right now.

IT’S ALL HAPPENING.

In any way,here’s a beautiful gif of my beloved Sebastian Stan (hitting his head against what seems to be a weird-shaped pillow) to brighten your day. Did that just depressed you enough?

Life is hard,you guys.

****

So,long story short,I’ve been running arround town lately,doing a bunch of stuff (a.ka nothing at all) and in fact,I’m going away for the weekend,as well! Sounds fun? Does it? Well,I’m just gonna be going  to grandmas. Nothing that special. Cries.

In any way,I’m watching Gossip Girl in an hour,and ofcourse,yes I’ve seen every episode already,thankyouverymuch for reminding that to me constantly (yeah,you know who you are) but I just love that show,it’s…. it’s Gossip Girl,okay?!

And it’s on my local TV within an hour,so now you guys know what I’ll be doing approximately 60 minutes from now.

 

Alright,I guess I’ll talk to you guys soon (with ‘you guys’ I just mean all my imaginary friends on Twitter,Tumblr on Facebook – I love you!),so stay safe,don’t do drugs,do your laundry and eat chicken. Because heck yeah,chicken tastes gooooood.

Political Animals premiered tonight. ALL THE SEBASTIAN FEELS!

Because that is what it was – pure perfection. The cast (SIGOURNEY! And Sebastian,too! Let me love you!!),the plot,the entire pilot was great,there’s not really much else I could say. Well,there are a few things but who am I kidding,I’m not really capable of writing it all down,at least not today anyway.

Mhm. But I seriously need to get my shit together and write a proper review later.

For now though,I’m just going to snuggle under my blanket and cry because of all this perfection.

And yup,I’m going insane. Deal with it.

 

 

And YES,this post has 2 gifs. BECAUSE IT DESERVES

My very personalised “Political Animals” appreciation post.

What is it with those fandoms that everyone always thinks that some certain celebrity is their husband or wife? I mean,he’s mine,obviously. Get over it. (But jk,really) (I just wanted to use this “Awkward” gif,y’all)

With that being said,it’s less than A DAY left till Political Animals go on in the USA. I mean… Sebastian Stan as a drug addicted yet totally adorable politican’s son? I’d tap that. And I’d tap that hard.

Here,I said it.

Alright,so if we pretend that I am not totally embarassed about what I just wrote,I’ve came to a conclusion that I finally have to take some action with my Sebastian obsession.

I think I’m sending a fanmail to him. Who knows,maybe I’ll receive a reply one day?

I’d bet that day will be  like Christmas.

Actually,the other day I thought about how many celebrity crushes I’ve had  (husbands,as I prefer to call them) – I’ve went from Zac Efron to Chace Crawford,to Chris Evans to Sebastian Stan. And I’m not even 18 yet.

Here’s a random thought: I love how people on Tumblr don’t judge you for your obsessions. I mean,someone likes Glee cast,someone likes Britney and someone likes pretty food pictures and all of that is okay – on Tumblr,they like you for who you are (which,most likely,is a crazy nerd freak who spends his time reblogging some deeply pointless shit.) And the best part is – you don’t have to fight over anybody,because we can all share!
It’s not like that person knows we even exist anyway.

And with all that being said,once again – sdlkfjdlkfgjb lgkyujlktjglflkjv lfkl monday morning (when I’ll be able to download it here,hopefully!),Y U SO FAR?

CODE RED,someone’s been reading my blog!

 

 

Okay,so is it normal that it bothers me that I know that some people actually read my blog!?

And you know what else bothers me,I just noticed I used the word “that” a lot in the last sentence. Whoops. Anyway.

So,back to business,do you guys ever get that feeling that you write something without really thinking about what you’re writing and then suddenly you see in your statistics that someone has been actually reading it? (God forbid,the viewer is from your country!!)

Well,I know this blog of mine is kind of public and all,I mean I even have the link Facebook-ed out on,well,my Facebook and another site I’m on but yeah.

But I guess,unless it’s my parents reading this… What’s the worst that can happen? It’s not like I’d be writing posts and publically bashing people or something.  Although,I did concider it as a possibility. Uhhh. I’ll have to secret-code their names now!

Anyways. That’s a daily dose of randomness from me,take care and eat lots of apples!

I’m allergic to them anyway.

The meeting: Aftermath

The good news are,I survived. Woohoo! Honestly,when I wrote that post yesterday,for a split second I truly thought “what if he’s a serial killer?”

And then I also thought,if I die,who will notify my Facebook and Twitter friends?

But that was that,really. By the time I got out of the house,I was full of positive thoughts and tried my best to keep it that way,at least untill I get to the place we were supposed to meet.

So,there’s not really much I could say about this… meeting,because that was really what it was,a meeting and nothing more. It wasn’t a date because it didn’t really feel that way… Is that bad?

And I honestly thought it’ll last longer than it did but ofcourse,the mother nature had her own plans and soon enough a storm started and we were basically running for our lifes to not to get either soaked or struck by lightning. Which we didn’t – phew! – but that was close.

In any way,these 35 minutes were pretty nice,I mean there’s nothing bad I could say about it other than that most likely,we won’t be meeting again. At least not in a date-ish way anyway.

But just to calm you guys down,he wasn’t a maniac (at least he didn’t seem like one!),he wasn’t 50 either,in fact he was exactly the same as in his profile picture,which I have to say was releasing.

Needless to mention,I had like tons of make-up on my face for this meeting. Seriously,next time I go out,I’ll go all natural and sh*t. If he won’t like me like that,his loss not mine. Right?

After this meeting,I already know that whoever I go on a date with someday,I will want to sit down and talk because

a) walking and talking is kind of exhausting and b) I just want to experience at least once in my life the way how people date in the movies – you know,the caffeterias and drinks (okay,I don’t drink but just go with it,alright?) and talks and romance and stuff like that…

You know,every girl,and it’s not just me,I mean every girl deserves a fairytale date once in a while,where the guy would take you out to some nice place,be a gentleman and make you feel comfortable the way you are.

So,I guess I’m still waiting for that one beautiful date to happen. But untill then…

Tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

So,I got a meeting today. Oh Em Gee.

I’m going to a meeting (date?) with a guy.

We met on the Internet.

We’re meeting today.

What’s the worse that can happen?

So,here in my place,we have this local social networking site where everybody knows everyone through common friends,neighbours,classmates etc etc etc. It’s basically like,you can even not be related to that person but you have like 16 common friends and unintentionally,you even know half of that person’s family.

But this time it was not really like that,though.

We don’t have common friends and that’s kind of awkward actually. However,during these short few months we’ve communicated – online and on the phone though – and I feel like I know at least 70% about that person already so I guess it’s about the time we take it to the next level and meet up,right? For crying out loud,we’re from the same city. It couldn’t be that bad.

But then again,do I really know what I’m doing? Do I? I’m not sure about it myself.

Pfft. Too late to cancel,though. And it’s not like we’re meeting during the night in a filthy bar full of shady people,right? It’ll be day time,perfectly normal,full of people,it shall be just fine. Right?

In any way,if I don’t come back to this blog within few days – well… You guys know what I was doing today.

Yikes. I really regret writing that last sentence,it’s depressing the sh*t out of me right now.

Talk to you later,guys!

And by the way,does any of you have like a dating experience where you have met through the Net? Please comment and tell me because honestly,I just need to hear.

SOME OLD-SCHOOL CHIC

I was just recently watching an old Marilyn Monroe movie and got totally mesmerized how playful and cute she actually was. Okay,I’ve heard how they say that Marilyn was probably one of the most difficult Hollywood actresses to work with but didn’t that all pay off when they saw the final result?! That is what I am thinking.

I really loved ”How To Marry A Millionaire” because,surprisingly,everything in that movie was just so true and relatable,even for the 21st century gal like me.

So,thank you Marilyn for your voice,playful acting,beautiful smile and iconic figure,which will always stay as a reminder to all the young and aspiring ladies out there that being curvy is an effect not a deffect.

Such a shame she died.

IT’S PICTURE TIMEEE!

I realised I haven’t changed my profile picture in my social networking sites for ages! For a few weeks,to be [more] realistic.

And now I’m just thinking,how do you guys usually pose for that stuff? Do you have like a signature sign or you just click ACTION and hope for the best? Because that is mostly what I do.

Except those times when I click by accident.

In those pictures I mostly look like a retarded whale on a crack. In Hawaii. Wearing a shirt that’s been made in China. Doing a peace sign. Or at least a half of it anyway.

I personally think you have to be really photogenic for that stuff. I mean,there’s those people who look good in reality but their pictures are like “Whaaaat?” and there’s those people who maybe,ummm,aren’t so attractive in real life but in pictures they’re like:

So,geeesh,truth to be told,I’m from the un-photogenic ones. Although sometimes a miracle happens and the pictures turn out pretty great,most of the time it’s just crap. What about you all,any tips ‘n tricks for a future model superstar? Always welcome!

Alright,I’m out for some alone time with me and my camera. Oh yeaahhh,it’s PICTURE TIMEEE!
