Woe is Yo

The Stella Winter Tour ’08 officially concluded Saturday night in Los Angeles at the beautiful Orpheum Theater. An elegant venue for blatant stupidity. Yesterday I flew home, having flown from Boston to San Francisco two days before that. After having flown all over the country the week before. Tomorrow I have to fly back across the country to Vancouver for a couple days. Then home again. As much as I love sitting in an airplane seat for hours and hours at a time, this is a bit much even for me. Worse, I now hear that the only direct flight I can have tomorrow leaves at 7:00 am, necessitating a 4:30 pick-up from my house.

Obviously there are many actors out there who would like to have my problems, but I am, frankly, exhausted. You would think traveling from show to show wouldn’t be that big a deal. After all, you’re only “working” a couple hours a day, but for some reason this last Stella tour left us all completely wiped. I like to think it’s because we were giving everything we had to the audience, but I suspect it had more to do with the fact that we’re all getting old. There was a time, and that time was not that long ago, when touring was invigorating, exciting, and very sexy. Now the sexiest part of touring involves deciding what TCBY flavor to get at the truck stop. And no, “TCBY flavor” is not a euphemism for anything.

All in all, the Stella tour was a big success. We had great crowds everywhere we went, and it was heartening to see such enthusiasm for us even though we haven’t been on the air in three years. Even better, I don’t think Showalter lost his wallet a single time during this tour, which is a career highlight for him. Another highlight was saying hi to all the fans after each show; even if we appeared tired (which we were), we definitely appreciate the support and love. At least I do. David was indifferent.

So yeah, I’m off to Canada tomorrow. It probably would have made more sense to just stay in Los Angeles these last couple days, but I wanted to see my kids. Because I’m an awesome father and because they owed me some money.

You say the winter tour has concluded, but there is a Stella myspace site that states you are lying like a rug. The site states there are shows in Seattle and Portland still to come. ???

Not that I care for myself, I don't fly anywhere to see anyone. I love you guys to pieces, but brother, if I'm going to fly somewhere, it's because I'm going to end up ass down on a beach. No no, I ask this for the general good of the country. Plus it gives the Southerners some hope that you guys will pop by there eventually - TX, GA, etc.

Here is the myspace site (that totally lies?):

Yeah yeah, hope! Lovely, fuzzy, duplicitous hope -- I lap up that hope! Ahhhh, Stella in TX. Talk about a Christmas miracle, aye guys???? (Poor Michael. ;p)

Monique

I am also off to Canada today and I hope I see you at Cafe Crepe.

Cat--it wasn't that he almost got "shanked" as it was more some drunk kid that michael gave money to ran up on the stage and began emitting scary, crazy person vibes. he had to essentially be drug off the stage, proclaiming his love for MIB. Truly, it was a spectacle.

To Jaime-

Yes, they can do anything!

Thank you very much, Jaime. You are very kind :)

cat

Woah that's freaking weird. And it was a guy? I wish I could have witnessed that.

I am in prophylactic shock :)

Jaime

(and, anytime gatto. That's what MIB buds are for ;)

Max

Also Michael- today is the 15th anniversary of the debut of the State!

Tee

Um, is it the world, or did you delete your facbook account?

Amanda

I saw you guys last Thursday in Boston. I still can't get over how awesome it was. Thanks so much for taking the time to meet with your fans (and to sign my tie!).

You guys were so awesome, you killed the power all over New England. Over 400,000 New Hampshire citizens were without power (and still are)!

You guys rule. :) I'll always be a fan. <3

just like everybody else, thanks for touring and staying after to meet the geeky fans. i didn't think i would ever get the chance to see stella live, and it didn't seem likely that we (my girlfriend and i) would be able to sustain the twelve-hour drive to do so. glad we did though, because it was way more than worth it! thanks for the pictures, too... we were so excited have our photo taken with a huge/famous/tall celebrity such as yourself.
