The Pinnacle of my Life

7 years ago

Tomorrow 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.

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

    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. smiley0.gif
