LAist: hey take a picture of the Live Blogging Tent!

Elina the LAist Live Blogger: OK, in this photo you'll see a blonde spiky haired dude, that is mk from popbytes. the girl in the blue t-shirt on his left is lisa from socialite life

so there are no tables for you kids? and you're all watching it on tv from a tent?

Support for LAist comes from

yes, there are both tables and chairs as well as couches. most of the bloggers were on the couches but I had to use a table cuz i didnt have my extension chord with me.

about how far away is the tent from the actual awards?

no idea. wish i knew

a mile, ten miles? youre at universal right?

i am taking a totally random guess when i say 232 yards. the force is strong within me. i feel it's close by, yet i can nevr reach it.

are there food and drinks for the bloggers?

yup. we're well fed with subway sandwiches, sodas and veggies with dip. the couches are nice, the tech support is very good. plus, i have my soco.

whats that?

southern comfort. i snuck in a flask. i shared some with other bloggers (ask TMZ). that's the only way i know how to make friends, putting out. Schwing!

its hot in the valley today, is it hot in that tent?

no!!!! i wish. one of the craziest things about blogging from the mtv movie awards is...
that despite global warming this tent is air conditioned to arctic levels. brrrrrrrrr

how many people total are in the tent?

about two dozen bloggers and about 7 MTV staffers
