Steve-O

Ok so. I’ve been a fan of Jackass since I saw the first movie a while back. I admittedly haven’t seen that much of the TV show because I don’t really watch much TV (except for cartoons, I guess) but I love the movies!

I don’t remember why, but strangely enough, I had been thinking about Steve-O a few months ago. He was always my favourite from Jackass. I stumbled upon his wikipedia page and I was excited to find out that he was a vegan, too. When I went to his website and saw that he was releasing a book and would be coming to London in July. I really wanted to go see him, but when I looked at the ticket prices I thought buying some would probably be fiscally irresponsible. However, I didn’t rule out the possibility of going, and it was on my mind for a few days.

At that same time, I was working really hard to worry about money as little as possible — or, to be more exact, I was expressing as much gratitude for the abundance in my life as possible, and trying to relax more. I wrote about it a little on on my lifestream. After going to a really lame job interview, it sort of hit me that the whole having a day job just isn’t for me. I figured, I might as well just forget about all that stuff and focus on manifesting abundance in ways that make me happy.

Literally a week or two after I had been looking at Steve-O’s website, Rob’s Dad asked me if we had any interest in going to see Steve-O, because he had free tickets to the show! I guess he got them through some website or something, I don’t know. I was ecstatic!

When the 7th rolled around, we went to the o2 to see him. Unaware that Steve-O had started doing stand up comedy, we weren’t really sure what to expect. After sitting through a (not good) opening act, he came on stage at last!

It would be impossible for me to write about all the things he said, but he told us a lot of hilarious stuff about his life and his experiences on Jackass. Watching Steve-O do stand up is way better than watching most comedians because there is a real sense of honesty surrounding everything he says. It was more like sitting with a friend, who’s telling you all these awesome stories, than watching a regular standup comedian. He also seems to be extremely comfortable with who he is, which makes him a lot of fun to watch.

After doing stand up for a while, Steve-O did some exciting/scary stunts for us involving lemon juice and glass (not at the same time). His final stunt involved jumping through a fireball, which was pretty rad. During the show, I kept thinking that I wish I had a camera. I seriously take that thing with me everywhere, and of course when I actually needed it I had forgot it. I attempted to take some TwitPics with my Blackberry, but it has a terrible camera so it wasn’t exactly a success. I guess it was my lucky day, because after he finished doing stunts, Steve-O said he wanted to take pictures of all of us with his own camera!!!

Everyone rushed towards the stage and he took time to get his picture with everyone individually. I wanted to get his autograph on something, but I came unprepared so I just grabbed the first thing I could think of for him to sign, which happened to be my Hello Kitty make up case. 😛 When it was finally my turn, it was only slightly less humiliating than I thought it would be asking him to sign it, but he obliged!

After he took our picture together, I said to him “I’m a vegan too!” When I said that he smiled really big and said “Awesome, I love that shit” and gave me a high five!

The whole experience was super inspiring and uplifting, I’m shaking just writing about it! It’s amazing what you can manifest when you stop worrying so much. So remember – abundance can come from anywhere, and in any form!

    I love Steve-O.. his stories of overcoming drug addiction and destructive behavior are really inspiring to me. I didn’t know he was vegan! Also, what a great example of the awesome things the universe can bring if you let it. Way to manifest!
