I can Officially say that I'm Official!  

A little over a week ago, Drake Bell's record label and his management contacted me and asked me if I would take over running his official MySpace. How they knew who I was or how to contact me can be summed up thusly: I have a big mouth. LOL It's a much longer story than that, and perhaps I'll tell it all at some point, but the upshot of it is this: I said yes, then dragged my partner-in-crime ladyguenivere in to help, and within the past week we've whipped that thing into shape. Many many thanks and kudos also go to freckles42 and miss_trombone for their excellent last-minute, we-needed-this-yesterday-but-AMAZING-LIKE-WHOA graphics skills.

So yes, I now spend my lunch hours on conference calls with record execs and Hollywood management, working late into the night on things all manner of both exciting and boring, getting paid nothing to do something crazy. It's madness, but hey - someone's gotta do it. ;)
I feel: energeticinsane!

I would like to hear said story. XD

Haha, I've seen my banner places and I'm like "IMADETHAT!" in my head, of course. XD But it's so weird being like ":X.......*explodes*" Haha.
You are very welcome and if you guys ever need anything again, don't hesitate to ask. :D
Vicki: Drake OMGYAYhermorrine on November 11th, 2006 05:47 am (UTC)
I'll have to work on that, because it's a looooooooooong story. LOL

I've been feeling all splodey for over a week!! :D

Oh, we'll need stuff - we'll also need stuff for DBO, as we're still doing that, so you can believe I'll be hitting you up. :D

May I friend you, oh graphic maker? :P

Go right ahead! :D

Ah, did you make the banner in my user info? I would gladly credit you if so!
Vicki: Drake hmmhermorrine on November 11th, 2006 06:11 am (UTC)
No, she didn't - that's freckles42's handiwork. It never occurred to me that people would take it off the MySpace, though...
Tracey: Drake Bell - redfooltheworld on November 11th, 2006 06:16 am (UTC)
Well, you know us zany people. :p I can take it down if you want. I had made my own but I liked that one better. I don't mind putting mine back up if you'd rather me not use it. Just lemme know! :)
Vicki: Drake and duct tapehermorrine on November 11th, 2006 06:20 am (UTC)
LOL I do now! ;) If you link it to the MySpace, I think we can call it even. :D

Tracey: Drake Bell MTV Awardsfooltheworld on November 11th, 2006 06:02 am (UTC)
Can you put the video on there? And make me one of Drake's top friends? hehehehe No really, can you do the video?
Vicki: Drake bite byhermorrine on November 11th, 2006 06:08 am (UTC)
No, alas, we can't. There are Legalese(TM) reasons from Corporate on High that I don't quite understand - believe me, we asked for it!!! But it will be up in other places than MTV.com - I can reveal that much. :)
Tracey: Drake Bell - smilefooltheworld on November 11th, 2006 06:17 am (UTC)
Oh groovy. Do let me know. Because the MTV quality isn't so spectacular. And their site is awful IMO.

Weee! I already told Jenn how cool I think this all is so I'll tell you - it's very cool. :D :D :D

WOW. that's pretty amazing, you must be SO excited *leeches off you forever* ;) looks like this myspace is going to be whipped up into shape in no time.
Vicki: Drake SO excitedhermorrine on November 11th, 2006 06:35 am (UTC)
Now I KNOW you wanna meet me next month. LOLOL The MySpace redesign is done for now - we'll probably revisit it in a few months, but I don't know if you saw it before we got our hands on it - it was awful. :))
breezy.: bell // i love my vegetablesmadeitsimple on November 11th, 2006 09:58 pm (UTC)
lol, i would love to have met you next month - which i'm glad you brought up because it turns out that plans fell through and i'm not going to be able to go :( i'm uber disappointed about it, but i have faith that he'll get big and famous and i'll see him on a real tour *crosses fingers* until then, again i live vicariously through you :D

the redesign looks great! i do remember the old one and i have to say that this is much cleaner - you guys did a great job! if you ever need any help, i'm always willing to lend a hand :D (with the myspace, or your site - i know they're both gonna turn out great). i'm gonna try installing YM on my laptop and we can get back to talking again!
Vicki: Drake - musichermorrine on November 13th, 2006 01:13 am (UTC)
Wah!! Well, hopefully the full tour will be announced soon (I feel funny saying that, since it's me or Jenn who'll announce it, but... LOL).

Thank you so much!! We can always use help with our site - the MySpace is getting more of our energy now, for obvious reasons. But if you want to work on banners, LJ icons or AIM icons to promote the release of "I Know" that would be great. :D

Congratulations - this is definitely one of the most cool things I've heard all century :)
Vicki: Drake and Josh laughinghermorrine on November 13th, 2006 01:06 am (UTC)
Thank you! All century, though? I realize we're not even 7 years in, but STILL. :))
Alex: Orihime Bean Caketitanic_days on November 11th, 2006 10:03 am (UTC)
I hope they're renumerating you handsomely for it ;)
Vicki: Drake and duct tapehermorrine on November 13th, 2006 01:07 am (UTC)
If by 'renumerating' you mean 'paying me zilch,' then yes, they are. :D
meg: *squee* bellameggitymeg on November 11th, 2006 12:02 pm (UTC)
Eeee, how exciting! :D

That is so cool. And in about five years, Catie is going to be completely insanely fangirling *you* for this.
Vicki: Drake guitarhermorrine on November 13th, 2006 01:09 am (UTC)
Thanks!! But really, Harry and Jon might also get into him - the cool factor makes a lot of boys look up to him as well, especially as he plays guitar. :D
dizzledee on November 12th, 2006 01:38 am (UTC)
