Yes, those are rose petals on the runway. Here are a couple photos from last weekend, when I was playing at the Miss Los Angeles Chinatown Fashion Show. I think I was there to provide the male point of view, because I was the only one with a Y chromosome to step foot on the stage that day. At any rate, it was a great show. And I learned that Miss Chinatown contestants have to change really, really fast. Unfortunately, these photos don't give a sense of how huge and beautiful the ballroom was, so you'll have to take my word for it.
I didn't sell too many of my CDs, even though they were super limited-edition (from having been burned on my Mac at home and then sharpied on). Maybe Office Depot and charity fashion shows don't have the same target market.
