hanging in l.a. with the chipmunks

alvin and the chipmunks

While I was in L.A. at the press junket for Alvin And The Chipmunks : Chipwrecked, I was able to "talk" to the chipmunks.  Now I'll just have you know that this was waaaaaay out of my comfort zone!  Which is why I did it.  I am not an actor at all, so when there's people filming you and doing sound and directing you AND people waiting behind you for their turn, well, it's a bit intimidating.  BUT I'm so glad I did it anyway.  I didn't want to get home and wish I would have done it.  It was worth it for the sheer pleasure of seeing my kids smile and laugh as they watched.  So, if you want to smile and laugh today, watch as I got the inside scoop from the chipmunks since I was first on the island...


I also talked to Alvin exclusively and did my best to sound like a chipmunk.  Much harder than it "sounds." :)


Alvin And The Chipmunks : Chipwrecked comes out TODAY!  You can read my full review at Today's Mama as well as interviews with director, Mike Mitchell, producers, Ross Bagdasarian and Janice Karman, and actor, Jason Lee, aka Dave Seville.  Did you know it's the only G rated movie out this holiday season?  I think it's a winner for both kids and parents!

To celebrate the release of the movie and because I think it's amazing how well the chipmunks harmonize, I have the movie soundtrack to give away!  It's a really fun mix of songs.  Shipping is to U.S. addresses only, but feel free to leave a comment no matter where you live.  If you don't want to enter or you live internationally, please just put that you are not entering in the comments section.  Otherwise I'll count all entries.  Giveaway will end Monday, December 19th at 9 pm CST when random number generator will choose a winner!  Please make sure I have a way to contact you should you win.

While in L.A. I also attended a screening of We Bought A Zoo.  Read my review on Today's Mama and enter to win a $25 Fandango gift card!

How fun! My girls LOVE the Chipmunks. We have both of the recent movies and my girls just think they're so funny. I can't wait for them to watch the new one - we will be back in the States for a short bit just after the New Year and I hope the movie is still in the theaters because I would love to take them to it!

Very fun interview! Well done! Your chipmunk voice was the best. :)

Kudos to you, Jen! :)

As you know, I live in Germany, but if my name is picked, why don't you simply give the soundtrack to a neighbor or church member saying hi from me? That would be nice! :)

Hugs,
Birgit
