    About 1:40 pm on Thursday September, 19th. The line to board the plane to Las Vegas from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport.

    Yup... I'm in the back of the line.

    Can't fly without a couple drinks. The flavor for this flight is a double Bloody Mary featuring Mr. and Mrs. T's Bloody Mary Mix.

    I returned to my room from the iHeartRadio Music Festival digital team dinner to find this gift from my wonderful wife.

    She tried to get me my favorite spiced rum, Sailor Jerry, but the hotel only sold my second favorite.

    Friday morning... training day. This is the site for the iHeartRadio Music Festival 'Village'. This was the first year that iHeartRadio had a day time, outside portion of the festival.

    It is also the same lot that Meesta Chow escaped from the trunk in the first Hangover movie. Yup... they paved it a week before.

    The iHeartRadio Music Festival 'Village' digital team. This is training day and I was a photo uploader. I sat in the second chair from the bottom on the right.
  •  
    After training it was time for the night portion. This is the line for the iHeartRadio Music Festival night 1 in the MGM Grand. It was a long line but it moved really quickly.

    My red carpet #selfie outside the festival.

    There was this guy. He put these mirror panels on his jacket. He said it takes about 36hrs to make. It definitely catches your eye...

    Dinner time. Can you believe it costs $60 for this plate of sushi? Well believe it. Not too filling.

    Heading out for work at the 'village' of the iHeartRadio Music Festival. I'm wearing my white iHeartRadio 'uniform' shirt. You can see my baby beer belly... isn't it cute? (left)

    Miley Cyrus performing at the iHeartRadio Music Fest 'Village'. I snapped this from the tv's simulcasting the show in the digital headquarters. What was she on when she thought of this stage show?

    These are vintage amps that Sir Paul McCartney used at iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. I don't know much about amps but they looked like they could be very unique stacks.

    This isn't dandruff... it's fallout from the pyro during Sir Paul McCartney as he performed at iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. I left it on my shoulders for the remainder of the night.

    This is a MILLISECOND after giving Sir Paul McCartney a high five!!! Seriously!! I high fived a Beatle!!! I'll probably have that inscribed on my tombstone.

    The reason he's looking away is because my phone camera is slow and I just missed the moment that his hand made contact with mine... I'll never watch that hand again.

    Bruno Mars is gaining a lot of respect from me. Yeah... a lot of his songs are pop, but he has true musical talent and is one hell of a performer. I'll admit it... I like a few of his songs.

    There was enough free booze for all of these people.
