Just got back from Butt-Numb-A-Thon

And my butt is, literally, numb after watching movies for 24 hours straight :-)

I'm going to file a more complete report later on, maybe even after I get back tomorrow, about what went down. But for those who are curious: we didn't see Cloverfield or I Am Legend or the new Rambo movie (although Sylvester Stallone did send two new clips from it that we got to watch and one of them is pretty violent even for a Rambo flick). However we did get to see Sweeney Todd... and I'm going to have tons of stuff to rave about that after it's had a chance to settle in. We also got to see a couple of movies that won't be coming out 'til late next year.

Around 8 or so this morning came one of the most diabolically evil things that I have ever witnessed in my entire life. It happened right as the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz staff was serving breakfast. If you were there, then you know what I'm talking about.

Butt-Numb-A-Thon host Harry Knowles gave everyone something very cool, and I'm going to have a dilly of a time getting it on a plane tomorrow.

Anyhoo, I'm gonna get cleaned up and take a nap and recover some. Expect a far more full post about what happened sometime in the next couple of days :-)

"However we did get to see Sweeney Todd"

Question: Have you ever seen that on stage?

I did, but not quite. Back around 1980, there was a touring company of Sweeny Todd (with Angela Lansbury and George Hearn), and while in Los Angeles, they videotaped a performance and put copies up for sale. I bought a copy through mail order (it cost me 25 bucks plus shipping) back around 1991. So, I got to see that on stage, but on videotape.

Less than a decade later, I put that tape up for sale on eBay and it went for 100 bucks! (by then it was an out of print video and a rare item as a result)
