I flew back to Phoenix yesterday morning. I was at the Key Art dealie until around 1:30-2:00 am and I had to drive my butt back to my hotel in West Hollywood. Got to bed around 2:30 only to wake up at 5:00 am to catch my 8:00 plane back to Arizona.
After landing, I had to drive to work, worked until 3 and then had to go to ANOTHER party at 7:00 where I stayed until 3:00 am.
Do you know what it’s like to explain what I do, reviewing trailers, to complete strangers two nights in a row?
It’s not so bad but when I mention Kevin’s name, as the guy who lords over everything I do, but it’s when I get the blank stares and the comment, “Who?” as they shake their heads with a small grin, excusing them of their ignorance.
It’s okay, I understand my lot in life isn’t one that’s wildly popular but I vow, to my maker, that someone, someday, will say they know exactly what I mean when I say that I review trailers for Kevin Smith’s website.
There are worse things, I guess.
Things like this.
However, something like this keeps me coming back for more.
And let’s not forget our brothers and sisters who are making animated films from across the pond.
