I'm so excited to see this movie THIS week. I became a fan just a month ago when I rented the show off of Netflix, and now I'm about certifiably insane about it- ask name, he'll tell you.
Anyone else a big fan of this series?
I still want to discuss the series, movie too... but also have a request.
I need a date for the premiere.
Okay, so not really a "date"- but someone to go with, but let me explain.
I entered a poetry contest on Ain't It Cool News last week to win 2 tickets to a premiere this Wednesday (8pm) in AUSTIN. Now, 1) Austin is around 4-5 hours away from here. 2) I haven't been able to find anyone up here who is available to take off work to go down there in the middle of the week with me.
Okay, so what's the big deal about the premiere? Well, Summer Glau and Jewel Staite (River and Kaylee from the series) will be in attendance, and are doing a Q&A after the film. It's also held outside of Austin actually, in a 'secret location'- some sort of western set actually OUTSIDE. They have those huge moveable screens and all - and will have full consessions including Chinese food, beer, etc... So, I just thought that was really neat and I'm such a fan now and have so very little good things happening lately, that I thought this would be something. I figured if I won, then I would go, if I didn't win, I wouldn't even buy or try to get tickets, kind of leave it up to some sort of destiny.
I'm going with or without someone, but I have family worried about me going by myself as far as the drive, which I can understand, but I'm a safe driver, and it doesn't bother me. So, looking to see if anyone in North Texas wants to go so I don't have to drive by myself, or in lieu of that, if someone around the Austin area or wherever wants to come in (because they are a browncoat lovin' fan) and meet me there.
