Is anyone else wondering what Joe Moses has up his sleeve this summer? If you’re following Joe on twitter (@thejoemoses), then you may have noticed that he’s been hinting at big plans, but has kept pretty quiet on the details.  We just learned that Joe Moses (and some others from the CESD family) provided “Additional Voices” on Star Trek Into Darkness, which is a HUGE deal for our favorite panda enthusiast!

But what about July and August, like he’s been alluding to? We know he’ll be performing JMOMS (or more precisely: The Joe Moses Showses) at LeakyCon in Portland at the end of June. 
 
Earlier this week he announced that NYC and Chicago. JMOMS tour dates have been confirmed- but he has not yet given us the details. Moses also implied that a Boston tour date will be announced too. So it is clear that JMOMS is going on the road, but where else will he be stopping? Who’s going on the tour with him?
 
JMOMS was originally the “one man showses” even though he always had at least 2 additional cast members usually co-writer/director, JD Durkin and a fellow member of Team Starkid.  Now in it’s second year, JMOMS has grown quite a bit and celebrated a very large, successful show at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, CA at the beginning of March.
 
Could Joe’s tour be the excitement that Curt Mega keeps alluding to on his twitter? Where do you want to see JMOMS go? Let us know, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated as we hear more!

JMOMS LA: Starkid’s funny man invades Whimsic Alley (Part 2)

When the show ended no one in the balcony was in a particular hurry to leave our little haven for the craziness of the fans making their way over to Whimsic Alley. So I took the chance to go over to visit Kim, Dom, Brooke and Titus over at their table. I asked Kim if she enjoyed the show now that she knew what it was all about. She told me it was hilarious but she said it needed more Curt (of course!). We talked about Evanna a little and how sweet she was. TItus ducked out almost right away so he said goodbye to everyone and left. I went over to Dom and asked him how he loved the show and of course we recounted our favourite parts. We also talked about my job & the new season of Dancing with the Stars as well as their show coming up and the Hunger Games!!! I asked if they were going to head over to Whimsic Alley and the were all excited to get to see the Harry Potterness of it all. We headed downstairs and I got a big hug from my Mom (Nicole showed her my picture with Darren! haha). We regrouped and headed outside where a couple fans were waiting for Dominic. It was super adorable, he told me that he’s not used to getting recognized but LOVES it all the same.

We met up with Pat at Whimsic Alley and got inside with the rest of the VIPs to say hi to the cast. We were all flipping about how awesome the store was, definitely have to go back (can you say Halloween party??). So Nicole, Mom, Grandma & I got into the “Great Hall” to see everyone. Nicole and I gave our present to Moses (the Panda puppet!!!) and I introduced him to my family. He was floored that they loved the show as much as they did. We gave the girls their jewellery and the were DYING about how awesome they were!! I LOVED meeting the boys; Brian was awesome, Brant was just *Beyond*, we showed him the Starship charm bracelet and I’m pretty sure he wanted to run off with it right then! It was great seeing Joey again, we talked about Toronto a little and he said he’d LOVE to go back. My Mom was like, “Well maybe not now, it’s FREEZING and snowy.” He asked her, “When would be the best time to visit?” and she answered, “Between June and August? Yeah let’s go with that.” He chuckled and said, “Alright I’ll keep that in mind.” (Side Note: Yeah my mom LOVES Joey and wants to steal him away as my replacement I think. I don’t think Dennis would appreciate that too much though.) Finally we make it to Curt and he is super excited to meet my Mom and Grandma! Of course he mentions (again) how he loves our city and he introduces them to Kim (who did what she called the ‘awkward bench swivel’ to turn around and face us lol)

So we Meeted and Greeted we took a seat near all the family members off to the side and I introduced myself to Mr & Mrs Richter and saw Lilly again. Mr. & Mrs. Rollins (Ricky’s parents) came by and we said goodnight (We had dinner with them earlier in the evening). Everyone started to disperse at this point and Dom came over to say good night and said he’d see me soon. Nicole, my family and I got out of Whimsic just as the larger crowds were starting to enter for the meet and greet. Finding Pat to say goodbye was a wee bit of a challenge but we found her out front and I thanked her SO MUCH for all that she did for us and Nicole handed off JD’s present to one of the Whimsic Alley guys so it could safely make it to JD. Today he confirmed that it did make it!!

So that’s my JMOMS story!!! Hope you all enjoyed reading everything!! 

JMOMS LA: Starkid’s funny man invades the El Ray (Part 1)

Okay so I fell asleep last night before I got to write this up so… here it goes.

So like I said before, JMOMS was so very amazing!! Starting from the beginning, thanks to Nicole & Pat Brady (two WONDERFUL human beings) I was able to enjoy JMOMS from the VIP balcony area while Torey helped out Liam, Nicole photographed her butt off & my Mom and Grandma sat with some energetic fangirls!

So Nicole and I got to the theatre and got to enjoy a little of the dress rehearsal (where we ran into Curt almost straight away and he said “You didn’t see me” as he rushed backstage). So Nicole went to work photographing while I sat there trying not to laugh to hard (which would have been SUPER embarrassing considering there was like 4 people in the audience at the time).

So just before they decided to open the doors Torey, Nicole and I headed up to the VIP balcony to get situated. So we picked out a table right in the middle with the “Warbler table” being in the corner to the right of us. Kim came over and said Hi to us all excited that Curt was going to be in the show. I think her comment was something like, “Curt wouldn’t tell me what he’s doing so I have no idea what’s going to happen.” And then who walks in but Darren Criss. I would totally write about that experience but my being checked out about this point so I have no recollection of it at all. Thankfully Nicole remembers it all so go HERE for that. I was mostly like this (on the inside :D):

So shortly after this I was ‘deserted’ on the balcony because the show was about to start. Darren & Jeff were sitting at the table right in front of me at their table and I had a table to myself for a little bit until Alex Carpenter came over and was all like “Mind if I join you?” I wasn’t about to hog a whole table to myself so I invited him to sit with me. We had a nice conversation wherein he asked me what I did, we talked about how he came to know Starkid and his “complete nerdiness.” I assured him that he didn’t seem like that much of a nerd at all. (On the contrary, he was quite charming & attractive!) At one point before the show started he excused himself saying he wanted to say Hi to a couple people and that he’d be back. So he came back about 5 minutes later and said jokingly

"You didn’t throw something in my drink did you?"

I looked him in the eye and was like no it’s totally safe, promise. Someone did try and steal your chair and I fought them off.”

He replied back “Nice!!” and I got a high five for that one.

Then Lilly Marks came over to say Hi to Alex and he introduced me to her as well. So yeah, I got introduced to Lilly Marks by Alex Carpenter…. NBD :D She is ADORABLE!! (P.S. Nicole hates me for this)

So the show finally started (a little late but whatever!) and thus started the Jeff and Darren commentary track as well. So here are the highlights I remember:

  • When Pat came out there was definite “Proud of Pat” clapping and cheering coming from all of us! YAY for Mamma Pat!!
  • The Miley Cyrus dancing - EVERYONE was laughing so hard up on the balcony. I’d like to think that it’s because they do the same dance when they hear a little Miley.
  • The Bieber ringtone - Again everyone’s in stitches
  • The “Stand-in” - This is where the “Crooked Jaw” line was yelled by Jeff. Completely flawless!! Everyone laughed at Jeff and poked some fun at Moses by ‘booing’ his acting ability ;)
  • The Blockbuster/Doctor Who sketch - This one was my FAVOURITE by far. Joey was HILARIOUS in it and Tessa was super cute.
  • The “How To Succeed” bits? I do believe I heard Darren say “Oh no you didn’t” at one point. And there was the obligatory elbow jibbing of Darren from the people at his table as well as Ricky coming over and laughing with him.
  • When Joe came out and asked if everyone wanted “MORE” show Darren legitimately did the whole “throw your head back and wave your hands like a crazy person” freakout. I was stifling my giggles HARDCORE.
  • All The Brian Rosenthal/Finn Hudson Glee crossover stuff was hilarious too. The only thing missing was Jeff yelling “GRRRRRROUNDHOG!!” and it would have entered a different dimension of, I can’t even!!
  • When Moses came out as Eminem all of us on the balcony went a bit straight up GANGSTA! And there was cat calling/fist pumping after Joe finished his rap!
  • The Snape Sketch - CLASSIC Moses here!! Kicked up to the next level with the headstand; we were all like WHAT is that boy doing??
  • Curt Mega aka Curt Anderson - loved the step touch choreography & everyone on the balcony was dying with the “back-to-back” duet action. I think if they had done the AVPM duet there would have been even MORE laughs.
  • As for the music interludes: we got our “Push It” dance moves on, there was definite Darren “Getting Jiggy With It” with Will Smith & he LOVED that they used Charlene (if it was even a question when it came to Moses though!!)

So just before the end of the show Pat came up to Darren to get him out of there before the crowds were let loose. In true Darren fashion he tried to say goodbye to everyone around him as fast as he could, again, cutest boy ever!!
