In the Bath with Jared Leto

Last Thursday, I got bloody with the AMAZING Kelly Polark and Jared Leto sort of at the 30 Seconds to Mars concert. Hands down the most fun I've ever had getting bloody.

Bloody freaking bath of the century.

But before you freak because seriously there were plenty of people even at the concert who thought we were nuts, 30 Seconds to Mars likes to have themed concerts, and this particular one had a BloodBall theme. Which meant BLOOD. And for all those who didn't come bloody enough, they had blood booths set up.

Me in the blood booth. This was just before I slammed my eyes closed.

Ever seen anyone smile like this when getting splattered with blood? This is the influence of Jared Leto.


I don't normally enjoy blood. I swear.

Here we are after the bloody splattering, trying to clean up a little.

Note to self: next time just let it dry. Smeared blood dries in a smear and then doesn't.come.off.

Also, doesn't Kelly look hot? I freaking LOVE that skirt.

Right before this picture, a random, unbloody lady asked to take a picture of us. With HER camera. Err? Okey doke.

We saw these guys up ahead of us in the tightly-packed crowd, but we were so determined to take a picture with them because seriously LOOK at them that we pushed our way through the horde and then nabbed a bystander to take the picture and ever so kindly forced people out of the way so we could get a great shot.

It's amazing what you can do after two red bulls with vodka.*

Oh, little story. I was at the bar and some guy tries to buy me a drink. He's loaded out of his mind and WTF. So, no. I ignored Mr. Overfriendly and paid the poor bartender who was freaking because the guy was yelling at him to take his money. And then as I was walking away, Mr. Overfriendly offered to give me his extra VIP golden ticket. So, I hesitated. Shrug. And then kindly told him no. That I preferred to surf the crowd on the main floor, thankyouverymuch. And then I possibly sorta kinda regretted not accepting the drink, because okay, he was so loaded, he was on the verge of either passing out on the counter or getting kicked out. He never would've found me again. Also, drinks were $8.

Here is The Man JARED himself.

Dang. Did you hear that? Yeah, I totally sighed just now. The guy looks like a bloody dreamboat.

You should've seen him when he was spitting blood into the crowd. I about fainted.

Dude, I was transfixed. Every time he came to our end of the stage (because we actually managed to get near the front), I just stopped jumping and screaming and just stood there, staring.

Like a goat.

(Ever seen a goat? Man, they are serious starers.)

If it weren't for the two giant dudes shoulder to shoulder in front of me, I likely would've floated to the stage, taken the mic from his hand and begged him to spit blood on me.

Which brings me to my next point.

Kelly? Yeah, she actually got on the stage.  I wish I'd gotten my phone camera out. It was so freaking awesome. I didn't even know she was up there. I just turned around and the girlie was gone. And then one of the signs she'd brought shot up into the air on the stage, and I started jumping up and down with my sign OMG she made it and it was just magic. You can see Kelly's post on the concert RIGHT HERE.

I'm so tempted to go see them again in June. SO tempted.


Just for your viewing pleasure: 30 Seconds to Mars' HURRICANE video. It's up to you whether you watch the CENSORED or EXPLICIT version. I'm off to watch it for the bazijillionth time.

Oh god. Yeah.

Sigh.

I've got to go see Jared and 30STM again. GOT to.



*This was me with the red bull, not Kelly. Although Kelly is total badass at getting through the horde.

  9. I'm with Jessica. I love every single thing about this post. For a brief moment, I was there too and covered in blood, and it was awesome.

    There's absolutely nothing like a really, really good gig.

  16. Sounds like such an awesome time! That kind of theme would be perfect for a Halloween concert too (or Valentine's Day if they're a little twisted). Thanks for sharing--felt like I was there :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sounds like you had a fantastic time!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This looks like so much fun. I'm so glad you got to see Jared up close. Next time get up on stage and give him a hug for all of the girls still pining over Jordan Catalano.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow! You guys look fantastically gruesome! :D

  23. Cee, we really are gonna have to have a little talk about this Jared Leto guy (quite frankly, I wanna know what makes him so heart throbby - I could use some tips). Has he got some kind of John Corbett man alive thing going on? Because you know, John Corbett would definitely have been schooled in the whole Jared Leto man alive thing because like, John Corbett knows how to appeal to both the ladies and the men because John Corbett has got the man alive thing down...

    #didisaythatoutloud?

  24. Oh and by the way, the whole blood thing...

    ...totally hot :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm glad I'll be in another state during the dance off with Kelly...she'd probably just knock me right over and dance on my body.

    You two are hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is BEYOND awesome and the two of you are so cute! (No need to mention that hot thing that you went to see, right? I mean, obviously, *swoon*)

    Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hmmm. Jared Leto~ ;D
    Glad you had fun! Concerts are amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have to be honest, all the fake blood made me a little squeamish, but that's probably because I'm preggo. ;) Jared Leto is SO hot. Glad you had an awesome time!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's cool you went with Kelly. But you two are way braver than me.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ok, first of all. I'm way jealous that Jared spit blood on you, that totally trumps the bottled water he spit on me and Tiffany in January LOL!

    Second of all I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT THE WHOLE DEER IN HEAD LIGHTS THING! Every time Jared leaned into the crowd above where we were I froze and was immediately trampled #totallyworthit #battlewounds

    That's CRAZY that your friend got on stage! Then again, I'm kind of glad I didn't because I don't know WTH I would have done... probably passed out and hit my head or something else just as ridiculous.

    So glad you had fun, you looked bloody terrific!!! *hugs*

    ReplyDelete
  31. BTW the 30STM afterglow takes at least a month to wear off, just sayin'

    ReplyDelete
  32. I know...he is SO good live. And, of course, he's the handsome. The hot hot HOT handsome. (I've been crushing on him since he was Jordan C). It's the eyes. And the bad boy factor. *dreamy sigh*
    I'm so glad you and Kelly had fun, though I knew you two would have a fab time together (and rocking out to The Handsome). And, I love me some vodka and redbull. A perfect concert cocktail if ever there was one.

    Huggles,
    L

  34. Sounds like an awesome time, anything with blood as the theme can’t be too bad, can it?
    I love the pics, it’s like being there… wonderful post thx for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  35. So. Freaking! Fun! And I'm so jealous. (well except for that part about the weird lady in the bathroom--that's kind of creepy...)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Was there headbanging? I do hope there was headbanging involved somewhere.

    Also, this post is happy-making. :)

    ReplyDelete

  39. Great pictures!! Looks like you two had an amazing time! I totally would have worked the horde to take pics with those guys, too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a great time you two had. I would have ignored the over-friendly guy, too.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love, love, love your post on this for obvious reasons!!!
    I had a blast with you and Jared!!! We will definitely have to do that again! (as crazy fun as the blood was, a different theme would be cool for the next one!) XO
