It's the final countdown!

Readers!  Iowa week is upon us!  It is actually not as chaotic as I was expecting...maybe it's a weird "calm before the storm" type thing, or maybe we are legitimately prepared!  Either's happening and it's happening soon!

Here is a recap of the last week:
- I am writing you from my new digs in Mission Valley, CA...walking distance from the San Diego Charger's stadium <3
- On Monday I spent the day in Long Beach with TJ.  We finally filmed her interview for the film!  It will likely not be the only interview, but it was the big one!  And it went really, really well!  It felt good to check that off the list.  We also had milkshakes at Ruby's and TJ helped me with my resume.  Oh! And if you see Myriam..ask her to tell you her pony joke! 
- TJ and Myriam just spent some time in Santa Maria with M's fan.
- I have spent all week moving boxes and furniture and spending way too much cash between Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

TJ will be hitting the road for Iowa in 48 hours, I will be flying in on Thursday.

Here is a list of the things I have to do before Thursday:
- Buy a new tripod.
- Stock up on extra memory cards and an extra camera battery.
- Pack 
Though I have visited surrounding areas, I actually have no idea how to pack for Iowa.  Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

TJ has a bad case of strep, so send healing vibes her way!  If she can't talk, she has a few days to learn how to mime her show in Iowa.

Thought of the day: Shawn and Cory from "Boy Meets World" were pioneers in "bromance" movement.

I'd love to promise one more update before Iowa, but with as fast as time is flying, I'd hate to make a promise I can't keep. But I will try to write one from the airplane!

We love ya'll!  Thanks for reading!

Is there anybody out there?

Can anyone hear me?

My god I've almost forgotten what it's like to write one of these things!  

Hi readers! Bridget here.  For those of you who've been keeping track, it has been just shy of 2 weeks since the last TinySuperstars post.  Some of you probably want to punch both of us in the face.  We are so sorry for that!   Last time we checked in we had OFFICIALLY landed our funding through Kickstarter, though we haven't receive a penny of it yet.  It's not like at 9:00pm on the 31st someone showed up with a giant "publisher's clearing house" size check.  No, there is a short waiting period (I suppose so they can send out their mobsters door to door to make people hand over their money.  Just kidding...I hope...)  No matter the reason, after 2 long weeks we should be getting that money tomorrow!

Here is a brief recap of what's happened since we last spoke:
TJ performed for homeless vets and LOVED it.
I bought tickets to go to IOWA!
TJ and I both have alternated being sick.
I am in between places at my parents house but am slowly moving my things into my new place, I should be officially living there by the end of next week.
TJ put together an AWESOME mix tape for our backers.  You guys are gonna love it.

Plus 1,000 other things.  One thing we have not  It is interesting because as of June 1st, we have entered the busiest month of this project.  Between getting funded, TJ's interview (no rescheduling this time!), Iowa, and TJ's birthday, we are both kicking it into high gear.  You'd think we'd have SO much to say but at this point it has become less about talking about the project and more DOING the project.  But I am CERTAIN that we are going to be back in July with a ton of really interesting stories!  That is not to say that we will be leaving the blog unattended.  I will be beginning a series entitled "The Bartender Chronicles".  In order to prepare you for this, I am attaching an instructional video.  Consider it "Bartending 101".

Here's what is coming up in the next week:
TJ has like 4 shows...she's on fire!
On Saturday I get to go to my girlfriend Emily's engagement party!
Father's Day (in case you all forgot..better go get a card)
The NBA finals continue (for the sports fans out there...GO THUNDER!)
And on Monday, my interview with TJ for the film!

It's gonna be another busy one.  I will be back on Tuesday to fill you all in!

To those of you still reading, we've not forgotten you!  Thanks for not forgetting us!

Talk soon!

Thanks, radio show, and IOWA tickets

This is going to be a quick post. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who supported our kickstarter. We are officially funded and our kickstarter page has been closed. THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH! I'm sure we will both do our best to insure that this is an amazing film. You will all be very happy with the results.

A few of you emailed me questions about your funds not going through or something like that. I guess some of you need help with the process, so PLEASE contact Bridget @ with any questions. I'm sure she can help. Thanks.

In case you missed my radio appearance today--here is the link. I talk about gender, dating in the LGBTQ community, my relationship with Myriam, kickstarter success, working with Bridget, and much much more. Please give it a listen. I received a lot of messages right after it aired--people all over the country were listening, and I think that is pretty awesome. TJ's radio interview

I've hit a few personal snags in the last 24 hours so will be taking a little time off to regroup and decide my next steps. I've cancelled all shows for next week with the exception of the homeless vets benefit show--which of course I MUST do. I'm sad and angry--not heartless:)

The tickets for the IOWA show are finally on sale so here is the link for that. I'm excited about seeing all of you who are coming to this performance. Yes, I know they spelled my name wrong, yes I know there is no picture even though I sent them 12, and yes I know the ticket price is wrong. I'm just choosing to proceed, because that is the best that I can do, right now. IOWA SHOW TICKETS

That's it for me. Thanks again everyone. TJ
