Woohoo! Bricker meetup achieved! Kingofkoins/Philip, allfivesenses/Jered, Justin and I had drinks beforehand, then met Chad Peter and Cuimean/Rod at the Arclight. Sadly the "afterparty" ended up just being me, Philip, Rod, and Philip's friend Eli at Canter's, but that was pretty awesome anyway. Lord help me, but their matzo ball soup is almost as good as my grandmother's.
Photos will ensue, but I forgot my camera cable at Philip's apartment and I am currently making use of the free wifi at Starbucks. We got a photo of all of us minus Chad, who sadly disappeared before we wrenched Rian away from his loving public long enough for a photo op. Noah was also at the screening, and Joe showed up for the one afterward. I got to hug them both, which made my girlparts very happy.
Meeting so many people I've only known in photos, text and video for three years or more was pretty surreal, but I had a blast. Hopefully I have started a trend, and by the time we have a premiere for Looper we'll have even more out-of-town Brickers all in one place for RianFest 2012!
25 points if you can guess where I am in that photo.
Is it THE MUSEUM OF motherfucking JURASSIC TECHNOLOGY, which I went to yesterday with kingofkoins, and is subsequently the coolest thing I have seen in LA thus far? (Sorry, Rian, but I think you understand).
I'm way too lazy to ever be truly belligerently insane.
