The Pinnacle of my LifeTomorrow is going to be the coolest day of my life.

I've been working with the Alamo Drafthouse to set up what would be my Make-a-Wish 'wish', except I'm not dieing of some rare disease. My wish: A reunion screening of The Wizard with Fred Savage in attendance.

It's happening. Tomorrow.

I've worked with Ain't It Cool News, The Alamo Drafthouse, and Nerdcore to set up this once-in-a-lifetime event. We managed to the get director, Fred Savage, and Luke Edwards (the kid who played The Wizard) to all come down to Austin to have two super-special screenings with Q&As afterwards.

...and I get to introduce it all.

The Wizard is seriously my favorite movie of all time, and I get to present it on the big screen to two sold out theaters. Holy crap that is so awesome. Tickets for the event sold out in THIRTY MINUTES.

I seriously may be struck by lightning before the week is out...if I do, know that i lived a happy life.

Oh, and my stinky challenge is going to start tomorrow...you should join, you could win a year subscription to GameFly just by getting achievement points.

Well shit, can you get me in? I had no idea this was happening, and I would kill to go.

My biggest regret in life is that I never saw The Wizard to the best of my knowledge.
Then again, there have been a lot of movies I've apparently seen and don't remember, like Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, The Black Cauldron and The Little Mermaid...

..sometimes I wish I were someone else who HAD seen The Wizard. I think about how drastically that may have changed my life....

I can't say that I ever saw it, so I can't get as excited as you. It's pretty sweet though, no matter what.

Dude, that is pretty fucking cool. Please, PLEASE wear a Power Glove!

It would have been +10 cooler if you managed to get Jenny Lewis to show up. But I guess Kevin Arnold is a pretty sweet deal.

A fave movie of mine as well, congrats on getting it all put together! You'll have to let us know how it turns out. =)

Ok, when you're up there introducing this event, try not to have a nerdgasm in front of hundreds of people, ok? Oh, and although it may be a night you'll always remember as the best of your life, Fred still probably won't respect you in the morning.

That was a great film. I remember watching it and thinking it was amazing. Then Mario 3 was played and I was blown away :)
