(This is a pretty boring post with a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT buried about halfway through. I'll TYPE IN CAPS when we get to it, so you can skim without fear of missing it.)
Did I mention Paul got in a accident and totaled one of our cars? That happened. A few weeks ago. Everyone is fine, and insurance paid generously enough that with a little effort we should be able to replace our mediocre car with one of equal mediocrity. But driving around L.A. looking for cars you've seen advertised Craigslist is tedious, so we haven't done very much of that yet, and are existing with just one car.
Paul was supposed to be doing night shifts color correcting every night this weekend and taking the car to get there, so I'll say that is my excuse for not having made any evening plans this weekend. Other excuses might include needing to write, or energy-sapping ennui.
I do, however, wish that I could invite people to come see me--but our house is super messy right now. To that end, Paul and I spent about four hours each today trying to reclaim the space. This was hugely exciting for me, in a muted, I'm-folding-clothes-and-vacuuming kind of way, because Paul is generally opposed to cleaning and doesn't see the need for it, but in this case, because he is avoiding doing film related work, he actually volunteered, and was quite focused. I think with another 8-10 man hours, things could be quite presentable again.
And on the topic of the film that Paul is avoiding ...(THIS IS IT, this is the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT)
Is it done????!!!!
No, not quite.
But it will have to be really soon, because THE PREMIER SCREENING IS SCHEDULED.
It will be at DRAGON*CON in ATLANTA, GA over LABOR DAY WEEKEND. Rock Jocks will screen at 8pm on Sunday--but that's not a school night, cuz the next day is Labor Day.
I WILL BE THERE.
So, if you live near Atlanta, you should come on up, down, over and see me. I don't know if we'll get any comp movie tickets. It seems like the screenings are "inside" the festival. A day pass for Sunday is $40. That will maybe be fun and worth it for you if you are into anything geeky, sci-fi, fantasy or comic-book related. Otherwise it will be a waste of your money. In that case, don't feel obligated to see the film, just come see us.
I am also interested, if my entourage duties allow, in going to the Decatur Book Festival, probably on Saturday. I believe I have at least one friend who is doing a reading on Saturday afternoon, but I'm not sure where, and I'm not sure what the geographic relationship is between the con and the fair.
More details to come. Facebook posts and Tweets no doubt. But for the loyal readers of this blog--you four know about it first!
