I should have thought to post this sooner. Our girlie's got a birthday comin' up (21st), so if you want to send her a card or something (I THINK THAT WOULD BE TOO CUTE), you should. Like, tomorrow. I do not know the address of the studio though. If anyone's ever sent anything there, let us know? ♥

I've still got one more short one that was put on her DVD (there are a few of you I couldn't fit in this song, so if you don't see yourself, let me know because you might be one of those people), and then I still want to edit a blooper reel for the hell of it (I didn't have time to do that in Cali for her :[ sad).

MUCH MUCH thanks to Grace for the song suggestion. And to the Hungarian girls, I would have loved to put all of your individual messages in there, but I really didn't have time (and I don't just mean editing hours, I mean like, time in the songs) so I'm really sorry. I hope we hear back from her and I'm able to maintain good footing with her and her publicist so I'm able to send more stuff (lol of course, people come out of the woodwork now that it's OVER, "can I send something?!" lol) to her and if so, I'd be happy to use more of everybody's footage that I didn't get to use this first time around. And this goes for like, everybody, not just the Hungarian girls.

Since I've done all I can for this now and all we can do is wait, I'd like to thank all of you guys for being so eager and supportive. You're an amazing group and not only do I love you for that fact alone, I love you for loving someone who's very important to me so much. Your love for Lisa was so evident and honest and real, and for those reasons, it was an absolute pleasure and blessing to work with. I only hope she's able to see in these videos what I see in you every day. I'd especially like to thank iwant_sprinkles & miss_fancy for their help with graphics, london_fan & just_schtupp for being SO helpful with songs, gentleflower for her support and honesty, silentsnark for her professional knowledge and advice, and really, all of you guys who ever suggested anything or supported this project and kept me going. I'd love to list all of you here. Know that I appreciated everything, every comment you left, every tear you said you shed, and every contribution to this group effort. And I appreciate you believing it in the first place. You've ALL been brilliant and supportive, and that's the reason I was able to finish this and get it out there. That being said, don't leave - this community is not over. ♥

Disabling comments because I wasn't saying all of that to get anything in return. I just really, really wanted to say it because I love you guys. You made my job easier. Well, maybe not easier because it still took forever to edit, lol, but definitely more fun and morally easy. ;)

I'll have 'Undeniable' up as soon as youtube will stop being an ass with it's ~maintenance~ or whatever it's doing right now.

DON'T WORRY. I still have a video to She's A Star and then one to Undeniable that are done. I'll post them ASAP. They're DONE, I just don't have time to run them through Windows Movie Maker to shrink the size down for youtube. I still have about 5 letters I need to edit in, maybe in a cute little instrumental clip, idk. BUT. Her publicist told me to call ahead to make sure someone would be in the office, so I did, and his secretary (?) told me to come on Wednesday instead because today they will be busy and "in and out of the office all day".

I’ve been putting this together for over a year now. I got the idea and mentioned it on the internet, and people were SO receptive. They began sending all of these things – notes and videos for you – and then I’ve spent the time organizing it all and editing it together. Some have sent you little material gifts too, and those are all in here as well, along with little cards of explanation. You can tell a lot about a celebrity by who their fans are. And let me just say that you, honestly, have some of the sweetest and funniest fans I have ever seen. I am so fascinated by this -- the fact that a celebrity's fans seem to often mirror them, just in the general way they act and carry themselves. You should be so proud, these people amaze me daily. They are so beautiful, talented, inspiring, helpful, humble and full of life. And those are just the ones *I* know. I wish I could go meet more because given the track record, they'd prove to be just as awesome, supportive and loyal. I see different little reflections of you in each and every one of your fans -- they each have a piece of you. Whether they had it before they knew of you or developed it BECAUSE of you, it is still the coolest thing. And it’s amazing to me how you can help raise and shape people without even knowing who they are, and without even doing it on purpose. What I’m trying to say is just keep existing – you don’t even have to go out of your way to do anything. Just keep existing and the world will be a better place. So this video is just us, your girls, thanking you for that and letting you know we’ll always be behind you.


There’s so much more I love, but I couldn’t say it even if I tried. Words don’t feel like they’re enough to accurately communicate just how much we all look up to you. But we’re trying. And we hope you’re able to understand even a fraction of what you mean to us. Keep working, keep taking on those unique and memorable characters, keep caring about dogs and yoga and the environment, keep being the strong, intelligent, individual woman you are. The other girls and I wish you all the best life has to offer, and hope you’re in the business for many years to come – but only if it’s what you want. Thank you for everything, Lisa E.

Y/N??? Anything to rephrase, take out entirely, or add??

I also wrapped all of her presents today. I found the cutest wrapping paper and also found these cute little environment-friendly cards to match. slkdjjfhsalkdjhfa. I'm buying a box in California - I don't want to have to worry about taking it on the plane with me. I'm just shoving all the presents in my suitcase.

I need Photoshop volunteers! I've got about 6 text letters that need to be Photoshopped onto slides and if anyone would be able to help out, that'd be GREATLY appreciated at this point in my life lol.

And in case you missed THIS POST, go to it and give me your info.

HI! So the way it's structured, I'm thinking this is going to be the opening section of our final long video, perhaps followed by One Of The Brightest Stars, but MOST LIKELY followed by another song that just_schtupp and I found.

I'm not going to lie, I'm really freaking out now. I'm leaving in two weeks. And I still need to call her people. And set all that up. And recently in my life, I've been thinking I have an anxiety problem (not over this, like, in my life in general) because I'm always afraid to do these things. I think I'm just scared that *I* will mess up, that I will not say the right thing that lets them know they should take me seriously on this. So if anyone has any advice for when I call, please tell me.

I've got packages and gifts for Lisa from wanderlonely, gutterflower_86 (I need to let you know I got it and I'm also going to write you a long email or PM because that was amazing), and kisses_and_such, I'm PRETTY sure, I'm just going from memory. But we've got a lot of cute stuff to give to her! If anyone else wants to send anything, DO. IT. TOMORROW. and rush it a bit. You've got about a week.

OKAY ANYWAY. ♥ Here's this.

As with the other one, it's not COMPLETELY set in stone yet, but it's pretty solid. Also, I won't make a list of who's specifically who in this video in case you don't want people knowing, but if you feel comfortable with it, you can be like "OH HEY THAT'S ME!" in the comments. And if you don't see yourself in this video or in the one I've already done - DON'T WORRY. I still have SO much footage and so many letters to use. I have all the meet-ups I need to figure out how to edit too, and I still have a lot to do, so don't worry that I lost yours or something.

Thoughts, ideas, technical concerns, anything - totally welcome. Please let me know! Thank you guys for everything here.

Our flights to California? Are booked. March 19-26. I am crying and having a panic attack and freaking out that it won't be done and ready. I think/know it will be - I operate really well under pressure, but I'm just freaking out because I've got two other videos that have personal deadlines attached to them, and I'm worried about school taking up too much of my time and kjdhsfklsa this post is really useless, I just needed an outlet and I thought I'd post it here instead of my normal lj because:

1. this project is what's making me cry right now
2. i thought you'd want to know that I AM ACTUALLY GOING.
3. i just spammed the hell out of my own journal and not everyone there would get this emotion anyway.

Oh wait, I DO have a useful question. Who should I be bringing this to: a talent agent, a manager, or a publicist? I'm thinking publicist, but I really don't know anything about this at all. I know I'll have to call/email/write in advance to talk this over with them before I just show up with this basket of stuff, but. I AM SO NERVOUS. Any suggestions on ANYTHING would be really great because I've never done anything all serious and business-like before. I need to rely on the wisdom of others.

ALSO, another thing - if you were going to send her anything material, like a little souvenier from your country or a short note or picture or something, SEND. IT. NOW. Get in touch with me immediately, because it'll take time to get here, especially if it's from somewhere not in the US.

I AM FREAKING OUT. And not even because I'm scared or anything, I'm freaking out at the possibility of her actually GETTING it. It's more certain/real than ever now and it's so, so overwhelming to me right now.
