Fantastic Fest time again and I cannot be any happier!! I am having a great time seeing the usual FF suspects and meeting new friends. This year I have teamed up with Austin Daze to cover the fest. As some of you know, I worked with them last year too. But this year will be new and improved with regular blogging and unleaded, er, I mean, VIDEO blogging!!
My evening has started out with getting a very brief interview with Kevin Smith right before the premiere of Zack and Miri Make A Porno. The Austin Daze dynamic duo (Russ and Bree) picked him apart earlier in the day, so I was easy on him.
The movie is funny as hell, by the way. There was one, straight up, mouth agape, eyes unblinking moment in the film that I can’t even begin to explain. Totally worth the price of admission.
After the movie will be the Air Sex World Championship. Yes, you read that right. I’ll be there getting footage and I will get it posted on the Austin Daze site just as soon as I can.
One of the funniest parts about that competition are the judges: Kevin Smith and Bill Pullman!!! Yes! Bill Pullman, the president of the United States from Independence Day, inductee to the Texas Film Hall of Fame is judging an AIR HUMPING CONTEST!! Really, Bill? Really??? Well, I guess it just goes to show everyone has their interests…..
All that goes down, pun intended, in an hour or so. So….I hope that some of you will jump into your cars right now and try to get in to this awesome event being held in the historic Paramount Theatre. The whole thing drips with delicious irony and I am sure Tim League knows it.
