Snakes on a Premiere

Thanks to the gracious Lin Shaye, I was able to attend the premiere for SoaP. The film was loads of fun and I enjoyed all the unexpected R additions that had not been included in the draft I read. The best part about the screening was the fact that I was seated next to an attorney who said he “never goes to this kind of movie” and was hollering and squirming in his seat the whole time.

I attended the after party as well. It was… Well it was a Hollywood after party. Hardly anyone spoke to me except for Lin and the actor who played Leroy. That made me feel weirdly guilty because his character was the one I got kind of stuck on and couldn’t come up with much of any background for. I spent a lot more time on Troy and Three Gs.

Anyway, the party planners had some funny ideas, like giving out little boxed airplane lunches and bags of peanuts. On the other hand, I was completely mystified by the go-go dancers dressed like stewardesses. Sounds hot, right? Except these girls were wearing ugly, loose-fitting, potato sack shirt dresses with absolutely no shape whatsoever. It seems if you’re going to have sexy girls dancing on platforms, you ought to get to see at least a hint of torso. But hey, that’s just me.

Brian “Snakes on a Blog” Finklestein was there too, but I couldn’t find him in the crowd. I didn’t bring a camera but he did. Unfortunately, he didn’t get a shot of me in my snakeskin dress. It fit a lot better than those stewardess dresses.

How someone couldn't take a picture of you in a snakeskin dress is beyond me.

I agree. I think that Christa should take some photos and post it for all the world to savour

I third this request...

Mostly out of curiosity, though. I've never seen a woman in a snake skin dress. Now I must.

Looks like the Snakes on a Blog server is overloaded today!

I'm sad that I'm not down there this weekend, I was looking forward to seeing you.

You were probably the best looking babe there. I spent some time yesterday kicking a wussy little Army boy in the bottom of the boots because he was saying it was too scary and he wouldn't go see it.

WHAP!

"You will, too!"

"No! It's too scary! Why?"

WHAP!

"Because my friend Christ wrote the novelization! You WILL go see it!"

WHAP!

So there.

SoaP was, indeed, terrific: right up there with the original Die Hard, to my way of thinkin'. Too bad, though, that we never see Eddie Kim get his very appropriate comeuppance...only appears in the book.

And Christa, I'm finally reduced to coming out and askin' ya: are you gonna add me or what?!? Sheesh, what's a guy gotta do to worm (or snake) his way onto a girl's friend list nowadays?

Known Associates
>>And Christa, I'm finally reduced to coming out and askin' ya: are you gonna add me or what?!?<<

My LJ friends list is called Known Associates. That’s cop-talk for the people the cops would go to get information about me if I got whacked. I chose that title because my LJ friends list only contains my closest friends. That is to say, people I actually know in the real world. As it is, I barely have enough time to read all of their posts.

So don’t be offended if I don’t add you. It's nothing personal. To be fair to all my readers, I don’t add any of them.

Re: Known Associates
