I feel like I’m an online commando, dashing into an Internet cafe and updating LJ at Sundance.
fosteronfilm is watching the short blocks (a series of short films, not stumpy rectangles) at Troma Dance, and I’m pretty shorted out (both in the “zzt” and “seen-too-many-shorts-gurgle” way). Also, possibly hung over. But only slightly.
It’s the altitude. Yeah.
So far, the shining glory of the convention has been Forgiving the Franklins. Because of the controversial nature of the film, not to mention all the nudity, it’ll probably never get distribution, but this movie is absolutely brilliant–brilliant and inspiring and spiritual, and as anyone who even vaguely knows me should realize by now, I don’t use the s-word lightly. If there’s a snowball’s chance anywhere anyhow that y’all can get to see this, go!
fosteronfilm is going to try to snag a copy of it to bring to Dragon*Con’s Film Festival, but that’s still way up in the air.
The Aberrant Dreams webcomic artist has struck again in a Slip of the Pen from the 25th: “Let Those Creative Juices Flow.” Hee! They said I was “hot.” They also made me go “ewww.”
Well, you are hot, and that WAS ew! *lol*
Just be glad he called it Betty and NOT Eugie! *lol*
Glad you’re enjoying Sundance!! When you get back, would love to get together again with you both, and hear about all the goodness! 😀
“Just be glad he called it Betty and NOT Eugie!
And yes, we need to definitely get together soon to hang out. Hey, I’m drawing a blank, but are you a football fan at all?
is coming down for our traditional Superbowl Sunday blowout this weekend. We’d love for you to partake of the booze, snacks, and shouting at the screen when the guys in the uniforms do weird thing with an inflated oblong with us. The Superbowl is the only football I watch, and the guys are pretty used to my “what exactly are the players doing now?” questions throughout, so even if you’re not a fan of the sport, I hope you’ll be able to swing by.
Thank you 🙂 I’m pretty much with you on that one … “Football is a game played by 120 men with odd-shaped balls”. It’s fun to watch like once a year though, if only to see the half-time show and commercials *grin*
Unfortunately, I have tests the next week and need Sunday to catch up on work 🙁
However, if you’d be interested in some sort of a mini-moviethon at some point, we should see what we can arrange with chips and dip and perhaps a potluck! (yes … I’m shamelessly sucking up for more of that famous veggie dish you make 😀 )
Bummer that you couldn’t make our Superbowl-fest, but a potluck/moviethon in the near future would be fabu! Drop us a line when you’re less beleaguered by classwork and day-job work. Hope your tests went excellently!
It’s the altitude… yeah, that’s it… the altitudue…
I’ll have to remember that one. :p
Hope you keep having fun!
Hey, the air was thin up there!
Now there’s an image to get burned into the brain. I’ll never be able to use the words “creative,” “juices,” and “flowing” in the same sentence ever again.
Me neither! And did you see the series after it following the “Betty” storyline? *giggle*
I just did. I’ll never be able to look at handkerchiefs the same way again (shudder).
Good to hear from you, Secret Commando Eugie! check in again if you get a chance respite from your commando-ing over there! We miss you.
Aww, thanks, Keesa. I had a fun time in Utah, but I’m glad to be back.
