I have been awake since 5 AM Saturday Morning. According to the computer in front of me in some bizarre business room at the hotel where the convention is being held, it's 5:24 AM Sunday. I will do a second post with pictures and whatnot, but I wanted to get things put up here before I forget some of these things.
To make it more interesting, The hotel I am at doesn't serve anything resembling coffee until 7AM! I may brave the nearby wilderness in search of caffeinated beverage to do something about that.
Now on to the show;
My friend Christopher and I arrived here at Cinema Wasteland promptly at a little after ten when the doors opened. The trip seemed short and was uneventful. All in all a good thing.
I managed to spot Mike Watt and his lovely wife Amy Lynn Best right off the bat. They remembered who I was which was a good thing. I tracked down Count Gore DeVol and we chatted and I had him sign a disc that I won from his website last year. One of my three mandatory signatures that I needed for the trip.
Lloyd Kaufman was nowhere to be found.
We ran into a lovely girl named Autumn who was part of the Horror Host Collective. Later in the day I would have to help save her from Rape Man, but more on that later.
I was shocked to see Ruby LaRocca at the show. She wasn't even supposed to be here. I amazed her with how many of her movies I had seen and got my picture taken with her. You'll see it later.
Lloyd finally showed up and I got him to sign my book. I will hve to scan the page for all to see as it is hilarious and would lose a little in the translation.
Then I ran into Chris Seaver and Travis Indovina. Travis was very nice as was Chis who is always nice when I run into him.
I finally met up with my Eurotrash buddies from Yahoo! Groups. Dan, David, Bryan, Louis and Bruce along with others who my sleep deprived brain refuses to remember where there. I got my last signature when David Zuzelo signed his book for me.
I got to see a special screening of DEATHBONE by Chris Seaver. There was a hilarious panel with 42nd Street Pete. More on him later as well.
There was a 11:00 PM showing of FRIDAY THE 13TH Part 5 that had live commentary by the director. Made it that much better.
Then it was off to the Hostility Suite for movies with the Eurotrash Boys. They all caved around 3 AM so I have been wandering, relaxing and waiting for morning to arrive.
I must now go and see if there is coffee nearby.
I give Christopher until 7, maybe 8 if I decide to track down breakfast and then I am rousing him from his relative's house to head back.
I will be sleeping all the way home and then more sleep tomorrow.
