When News 8 briefly interviewed us on Friday, the reporter mentioned he liked my segment the best because it was the funniest and most appealing - in so many words, the most commercial. Oh god, I thought, it really is. Not that I didn't already know that, and hadn't already dealt with it over the past year, but there I was, about to hop on that ever-turning merry go round again.

9:00 rolled around and the people began to gather outside the theater, people we didn't know, and it gradually became apparent that we were going to have a close to sold out show. 10:00, the film began, I sat outside, I went in here and there, listening, peeking through my fingers, it ended, the Q&A was good, and next time I'm determined to not be so outwardly self defacing when people ask about my segment - I was just really nervous.

The next night, Yen and I ducked out of a screening for a fairly big movie that was really bad. We headed down 6th Street to the party where Elijah Wood was DJing. We met up with Nick and James, who were already in the process of schmoozing, and we were all standing around when Matt Dentler walked by.

"Have you guys seen Aint It Cool News yet?" he asked.

We shook our heads...

"You really need to check it out."

I now have a screening to catch. I've only seen four movies so far. I underestimated the importance of going to parties and meeting certain people.

I'm so jealous. E-mail me more news. Has anyone important seen your films? Have you received any other reviews (good or bad) aside from the AICN one? Are you going to famous? What's the price of eggs in Austin?
