Happy Halloween (Weekend)!

Getting ready for the Big Party at ACL Live at the Moody Theater w/ Neon Trees.. 6th Annual Zombie Ball Masquerade. Not sure I'll pull off the Zombie look, since I'll be doing my own makeup.  Here's an example of a few years ago when the FABULOUSLY TALENTED MATT VALENTINE  did my Zombie makeup. 
IT ROCKED!

 Anyway, have a Happy & Safe Halloween.  If you have plans to get in the Zombie mood tonight, then be sure to say hey to me.

BTW... if you don't know much about Halloween. Besides it being the 2nd biggest $$ maker holiday when it comes to retail- Americans spend $6BILLION a year on Halloween!   Why we dress up? Why beg for candy/treats? I guess we have to beg since we spent all our cash getting ready for Halloween. :) Check this out... Click here!

DON'T FORGET IT'S DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME TOMORROW/SATURDAY (11/1) 2AM TIME GOES BACK AN HOUR!

This is happening this weekend!


Big Halloween Holiday, Formula 1, Fun Fest Weekend is happening soon, which means APD will also have a 'No Refusal Weekend' in effect starting Friday, 10/31 at 9pm through Sunday Morning. Please plan a head. Don't Drink & Drive. Have a 'Designated Driver!' There will be a watchful eye out for underage drinking. Anyone of age who gets caught getting/giving alcohol to minors face a fine up to $4,000! Road closures will also be in place for FanFest. The biggest closures on 4th Street from Congress Avenue to San Antonio Street. (KEYE)

Another option if you have plans to party w/ adult beverages, and not sure about having a D-Driver, you could use 'URBAN SCOOT'. Austin's Designated Driver! Their motto: 'You Drink! We Drive!'  Fully insured, UrbanScoot  will pick up YOU and you  VEHICLE, and safely deliver both to your destination for about the cost of cab fare. Our drivers pack a folding scooter into a protective case and place the scooter within the trunk of your vehicle and then scoot themselves to their next call once you’ve been safely delivered to your destination! - You can make a reservation.
Yes they have apps for that!  
iTunes   Google Play

New Mix Ear Candy...

I'm happy to hear The Script's new single 'Superheroes'  from their new album that's out now called  'No Sound Without Silence' on Mix 94.7.  Danny has the hair extra pumped up..NICE!
What do you think ?



The Script are such cool, talented Irish Hotties! Look what Danny did w/ me backstage at Stubbs a past visit to ATX.. around 4:40...
 
 I'm hoping for another run in w/ The Script in the near future. They are a whole bunch of fun... especially when they Confess stuff!

Yesterday, I asked MIX Facebook friends if they could help me w/ ideas of how to get my nails to look and feel better. They are awful right now. I have tried so many things, but there are several ideas that were posted that I haven't tried..yet.  Something has got to stick...  






Here are a few to try, especially from Ashley Lynn w/ this chart that should help lots of issues that you may have...

Why is Ikea Trending?

Ikea's Halloween spot is making the rounds. It's not trying to put something together which I wish I had video of my Honey Ted years ago putting an entertainment center together. After a few hours it was up w/ a few less screws and a hole in the back from a fist going through it. That would have been a Scary video..   This Rocks!

 

Like this especially since it's a Shining Reference, which I love that movie too... then we have something in common

Go for it!

Sometimes you just have to whip out a 'Happy Dance!'  It's 1/2 way through the work week! 
GO FOR IT!  It seems logical that  I'd whip out PW's 'Happy', but I logical is not always a 'me word'.
I was feeling this.... Do your 'Happy Dance' to whatever makes you Happy!!! 
 

I tagged Alex on FB.. Think he'll do it?  Maybe pass it along to Booker?

I had a GOOD Cry last night...

I finally got this movie. 'No Fault In Our Stars' via Netflix and watched last night. It's a good thing I didn't see it in the theater. I teared up which turned into crying. I haven't cryed from a movie in a long time. One of the Best Love story movies I've seen in a while.  I highly suggest watching it if you haven't, but be prepared with tissues.  I've heard the book is better than the movie, so I'll be getting that soon. If that is the case, I better have a box of tissues ready.


The soundtrack includes Charlie XCX 'Boom Clap', which is a huge hit for her. She talks about that w/ Jay Styles when she was in the Mix Lounge for a Q&A last Friday.  Click here to check it out!
