***SPECIAL NOTICE***

Elizabeth Banks said my name on the worldwide web. Nathan Fillion knows I exist. Life is good.

NATHAN FILLION--who as we all know starred in the film Serenity, which I named the best film of 2005, and which I had a huge geekgasm over--and ELIZABETH BANKS, who co-star in the upcoming comedy-horror flick Slither, HAVE MENTIONED ME IN THEIR TOTALLY KICKIN' AOL UNSCRIPTED VIDEO INTERVIEW. I submitted a question about a month ago...and they actually asked it. Elizabeth Banks asked it to Mal--er, Nathan Fillion. Elizabeth Banks said my name. Nathan Fillion gave an in-depth answer.

Fillion once said on Firefly, "I am not having my best day ever." I am.

My entire life has just been validated. Now all I have to do is meet that Nathan guy...and Joss Whedon...


*MARCH 28, 2006 - NEW REVIEWS, FESTIVAL BLUES*

I've got a review of Spike Lee's new heist flick Inside Man up and ready to be devoured by the masses! Other reviews may follow, especially if I'm having a slow night.

And, my loyal readers will take note that I never added another entry to my festival log...remember how I said I got sick during day two? Yeah, well, that sickness took several days to go away, and I even got my companion sick. But next year I guarantee you 100% that I shall be attending every single day of the festival, as I will be doing volunteer work there...
