Shannyn no show...



i just want to share my story from last night...

so first of all, i'm a HUGE Shannyn Sossamon fan. and when i learned that she would be coming to Hawaii (where she was born, and even has a bit of Hawaiian blood in her!) as a guest DJ at an event, i screamed with joy and had to get my hands on tickets to see her!

it turns out that my coworker at J.Crew (who is also a club promoter) would be one of the hosts at this event. and further talking to him about it, i learned that HE was the one who would be picking her up from the airport....!!!!! i almost died when i found this out.

so i begged him to hook me up with VIP tickets and get to meet her and everything (as i literally jumped around our store with joy), and he of course kindly obliged.

so last night, me and my other friends show up to the event, have a couple drinks, watched the fashion shows and other DJs playing as we impatiently waited for Shannyn to arrive. my friend later texts me that she was running late and had to catch another flight because she was caught up doing a movie event in the mainland. so we continued to wait, and soon made our way up to the VIP lounge where Shannyn would only be spinning. we made ourselves at home RIGHT in front of the DJ booth, where there was a lounge bed that we could relax on and continue to wait as other people were DJing in the mean time and other guests started to make their way up to the lounge as well....

a little more than an hour passes (it's already around 1am), and we just figure that since she's a busy celebrity, of course she is going to arrive fashionably late. i then text my promoter friend and ask whether Shannyn is still coming or not... and it turns out that she completely missed her flight and was not coming at all!!!!

how sad is that? we were completely devastated.

i guess that's the end of my story. haha :-(

oh no your poor thing, that really sucks :\

well, i'm a huge fan of erlend oye (from kings of convenience and whitest boy alive). the whitest boy alive last time came to sydney for concert and it was the best concert i've ever gone to. and then instead of sticking around for the last party, i went home. later the next day, one of my workmate told me that he stayed out at the after party and all the guys from the band including erlend stayed and talked to people including my friend!

my point is... the opportunity was all there without i even asked for it, and i could have just stayed for another half an hour and would have met erlend but i missed out :(

hope it makes you feel better!

Oh no Aron!!! ):
she's in one of my favorite movies (wristcutters)
I wasn't aware that she djs. what a big disappointment.
I'm hopeful that you'll get the chance to meet her one day soon.
on a side note: So you work at J.Crew? I've been wondering what kind of place Aron would work.
; )

While I am sad for you that you did not get to meet her, I am sure you had a wonderful time nevertheless. Don't worry, I have a feeling you will meet many wonderful people in your lifetime Aron. You are such a sweet soul.

That's too bad, Aron, but it sounds like you had a great night anyways! I'm always so inspired by your positive attitude :) Next time! Maybe she'll feel the need to make it up to her fellow Hawaiians ;)
