The Day Is Finally Here

I’ve been waiting for this day for 3 years or so. Today I get to see Peter Jackson’s Return of the King. I know it will be the best of the trilogy. I know my expectations are very high. I know I won’t be disappointed.

And I know I’m going to like the extended version even better – just one more year to wait for it!

It’s 11am. I got up around 9:30 – hooray for a vacation day and making up for lost sleep – and I have a few hours to spend before the film. Gonna go buy some new eyeglasses. Maybe do a little holiday shopping.

Is it 3pm yet? No? How about now?

Recommended Viewing

The American Astronaut opens this Friday at the Lumiere Theatre in San Francisco and I strongly encourage you to go. It is strange and wonderful.

“Written, directed, and starring Cory McAbee of The Billy Nayer Show, this space western musical uses flinty black-and-white photography, rugged Lo-Fi sets and the spirit of the final frontier to bring the film, set in the dirty, isolated vastness of outer space, to life. … The film features an original soundtrack by the The Billy Nayer Show.” [source]

I was excited to learn that there will be an opening night party at the Edinburgh Castle (950 Geary, near Larkin) at around 9pm. See you there!

Happiness is goofy movies & dressing up in costumes

Thanks to my totally awesome pal Kristin, you get to see the silliness I engaged in last Thursday. Shannon 'Buttpirate' Hamilton, Justice, Jay, Silent Bob Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back was goofy fun and we all had a great time. To our amusement, the ladies in the Japanese restaurant next to the theater were unfazed by our outfits when we went there after the movie. I guess they’re just typical blasé San Franciscan waitresses.
