One of my favorite local LA performers, Mr. Jim Bianco, did an online "concert" from his apartment today. It was at 3pm PST, which means I had to roll out of bed at 6:45am HK time. So worth it though. I put on the hotel robe, made a cup of tea and set up shop on my sahweet balcony.
There was a realtime chat for people to request songs and have typical, fan-type banter. [Jim, we love you! When are you coming back to the UK? Are you wearing pants, LOL! You're so sexy.] Barf.
At some point he asked who was the furtherest away from LA. I piped up and typed in Hong Kong. As he was reading aloud some of the cities, he said, "Hong Kong?! No way, you're lying.....Rebecca?"
I sort of squealed when he said my name. Only because my username was rhpontius, not Rebecca. HE KNEW WHO I WAS! Probably because I've practically begged him to play every fundraiser/event/party I've ever hosted (and he's actually supported FOEF).
