Do you all remember when I made music videos and those infamous mash-ups? And do you all remember when American Idol Season 7 was the best season ever? And do you all remember that this “cult-hit” that actually became a “cult-hit” was created the week I had food poisoning and was pooping my brains out? And do you all remember how bizarre yet oddly funny it was? And do you remember how many of you I become friends with and we become so close and I love you till this day, always and forever?
Those were the days. I never knew this would go viral and well, that was definitely good times! I was just making it for fun and never expected it to go this far. I can’t believe it’s got like, so many views! And the fact that I hear stories that while waiting for the concerts that summer to start, some of you would watch the videos on your phone or iTouch and it made you laugh! That’s special and humbling in its own right. And then later on, I hear news that the Top 10 Idols actually watched it when they were on tour makes it pretty special! <3
Whether you loved them or hated them, or just didn’t understand them, I thank you for watching! Part 2 and Part 3 are here.
And FYI: for the haters out there (because there were a few of you), the opening segment in Part 1 was actually enjoyed by every single member on that tour. I heard it straight from Carly’s mouth to my ears and she told me that they would quote parts on the tour! So yeah, it’s all jokey-jokey, taken with a grain of salt.
The one thing that really stands out from making those mash-ups were definitely the friendships I made along the way and I still hold dear to this day. Never knew I would come across so many of you and create a real connection and a tight bond. I love you, guys…you all know who you are! <3
The first episode of Lost in Tanslation features me — the host, Tania discussing the premise of my new webseries while showcasing items of interest and taking questions from fans in a random yet fun fashion. Every episode will have a theme and in this week’s webisode, I express my love for Popcorn, Indiana as I’m a Hoosier at heart and have a ”secret” love for cheese. Also, I have a feature, creatively titled “Three Questions” — will I answer yours this week? Tune in!
It pains me to say this, but I may be getting too mature for details.
My name's Tania! I'm a writer at NBC News' Newsvine. I wrote a manuscript a couple of years ago and hopefully will get that published this century. I love movies and music, baseball and football (NFL), my friends offline and online and really enjoy pancakes along with burgers. Not together, of course. My life isn't complete without some Elvis Presley tunes and TCM; I love Jimmy Stewart too. A pen and paper must always be on hand. Oh and I'm an active member of Team Conan and I love Tina Fey!
