|07:46 pm - The Coolest Fucking Thing in the History of Ever|
Remember that thing eirefaerie couldn't talk about until she could? Now she can.
What are you doing on January 14th and 15?
I know what I'll be doing. I'll be attending Alamo Drafthouse's First Annual Veronica Mars Marathon. All Season 1 episodes will be shown, back to back, because that's the way we roll in Austin, Texas. And there will be a couple of special guests to watch Season One with us! That's right, Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring and Enrico Colantoni will be hanging out with us, all day and night (and next day!), watching VM, answering questions, and just generally chilling with the fans. A 24 hour lovefest, but without the orgies.
But that's not all! Oh, no. What would a Veronica Mars Marathon in the last week of winter haitus be without the WORLD PREMIERE of the brand new episode, written [and directed] by Rob Thomas himself, on Sunday the 15th, days before its air on Wednesday? Well, it would rock ever so slightly less, wouldn't it?
So, those are the facts - the tickets will be going on sale on Friday, December 2nd at 5pm. I think they'll be 30 dollars for the marathon and 15 dollars for the world premiere party on Sunday. You'll have to check the website for official details.
eirefaerie will be there. dachelle will be there. I kind of have to be there, people. It's too awesome to miss. The major problem is justifying the three hundred dollars I'd spend on airfare when my bank account goes down every month. I think, deep down, I will do—to quote the Faders—whatever it takes to get there, but I really want it to be worth it.
Which is why all of you have to come.
Current Mood: excited
Current Music: Interpol - Public Pervert
zomgwtf WANT TO GO MORE THAN ANYTHING EVER IN LIFE.
How I wish I had the money to fly to Austin Texas right now.
YABOO! (thats meant to be a combination of the words "Yay" and "Boo" in case anyone is wondering).
I am utterly torn between jumping and cheering with excitement at the existence of such an event, and my VM-loving friends that will get to party all weekend at it, and crying and moaning because icecubes have a better chance at surviving in hell than I do of being able to attend myself. :/
Oh to live in Austin!
I so need my own plane.
Re: YABOO! (thats meant to be a combination of the words "Yay" and "Boo" in case anyone is wondering
But I am mega-excited for those that will be able to go, and P-C I am SURE it will be worth it for you to go!!
I mean... VM Marathon! + VM Premiere Episode! + VM Fan Friends! = Well worth it.
Even without the mentioned Special VIP Guests. *g*
All right. I have two free tickets from Southwest to anywhere in the country that I have to use by May. Class doesn't start until Jan 17th.
- No one will go with me. Who shall make sure people don't draw on my face while I sleep through, I don't know... actually, wait, there's no episode I could sleep through. Also, JD or KB or EC or PD or RT or ANYONE ELSE can draw on my face, as long as they document it with pictures.
- The earliest flight from LA on the 14th arrives at 12:50, which is too late. Meaning I'll need a hotel room for the 13th-14th and 15th-16th. Alternatives: sleep at the airport. Always a possibility.
- The movie theatre is 10 miles away from the airport. Cab would be expensive. A quick look at cap metro, and I think buses might be possible.
I WANNA DO IT. I CAN SO DO IT.
My friends will just make fun of me, that's all.
I WILL GO WITH YOU OMFG KAREN BAY AREANS UNITE!!!!!!!!

Ahhh, very cool. The Alamo Drafthouse is the place that created the bubblegum documentary based on my book.
You gotta go, P-Cow.
...I want to go so bad. But I just did TWH, and Lumos in 2006, and, and, and talk me into going! do it!
PS, this icon means YOU!
Aw, yay me! I thought I met you after you got hooked on VM, though! I helped? Awesome.
And, um...me! If I go, you go! There will be many other cool people from your flist there, I hope!!
oh my GOD I want to go so so badly omg omg
The ONE time I wish I were back in Texas....
I hate being poor. Wah. Wah, I say, wah.
I am poor too! And I want to meet you!!
I DON'T HAVE A JOB YET PEOPLE. YOU GUYS AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE ORGANIZING THIS YET. YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO SET THIS UP *AFTER* I'VE GOTTEN A JOB AND CAN AFFORD THE AIRFARE. WHAT KIND OF SCREWUP IS THIS????????
(And the above goes for Mr. Cow himself too, I'm sure).
Seriously, WTF??? Why? Is this some kind of... special event for charity? Or it's just Rob Thomas on a whim saying "hey, you know what? I'm going to ruin the bank accounts of a few hundred VM fans all around the world"? What was the motivation to organize this thing?
Originally, it was just going to be a marathon, because the Alamo Drafthouse does that sort of thing.
Then Rob asked if he could come. It just kind of ballooned from there.
That sounds amazing! I know you'll have a great time. And hey, I've been to Austin. My old college roommate was from there. Beautiful city.

OMG. Still hyperventilating ten minutes after finding this.
I've decided. I'm freakin' going! I'm gonna get there! Don't much care how! It's gonna happen. Now, the question is, do I have to beg, borrow, or steal?
Omg. Omg. Omg.
AND JOIN US ON SUNDAY FOR THE WORLD PREMIERE OF VERONICA MARS EPISODE 18, WITH ROB AND THE STARS IN PERSON AGAIN!
That's a mistake, right? Because otherwise there's going to be one freaking huge hiatus.
OMG! I WILL SO BE THERE! Austin is only two ohurs away from me!

I so wish I was you right now...
Damn North Carolina! Why didn't I go to college in Texas? Stupid me..
Good lord. I don't think I've ever been more jealous of anyone in my life than I am of the people who get to go to this.
Strangely enough, the "Once More With Feeling" sing-a-long I attended yesterday in Vancouver was organized through this Alamo theatre. I've never been there, but I have to agree with the "Best theatre in America" designation.
The guy who thought the Marsathon up also thought up the OMWF singalong. So, as you can tell, it'll be AWESOME. Wow, I didn't know those had made it all the way to Canada!
I was already planning to be in Austin sometime early next year, and this announcement just made it a lot easier for me to pick an exact weekend. Of course, now I have to explain to the people I'm visiting why I am out of pocket for most of Saturday, but considering how much I talk about VM, I think they'll understand.
This is totally cool of RT and company to do this. I've always wanted to go to one of the famed moviethons at the Alamo Drafthouse and nothing could be better than a Veronicathon. So cool. :)

Shit. I'll be there. Once I sell my body and part of my soul for the plane ticket :)
OMG I WANT TO GO SOOOOOOOOO MUCH.
We should set up a fund at MI.net. "Send penniless Marsifans to the Austin marathon!"

Dang, I totally want to go! Anyone think there's a way to be in Texas for 3-4 days and have my family still think I'm in California? My parents just would not understand this (particularly since now my mom thinks VM is corrupting me). Serious tension would be caused. I suppose I could go incommunicado for a few days, which would be fine because we don't talk everyday anyway. Hmmm.
*ponders ways to lie to parents*

Totally understand your pain. My mom loves the show, but she thinks I'm loosing my brain to it. Which I am. When I tell her I'm paying $300 to fly to Austin, she's gonna freak!
I'm very tired all of a sudden. You do a better pimping job than I do. :) And Henri's really tired of hearing from me tonight, I think.
All I did was post your own words, dude! I don't see how I could possibly be better.
Tempting. Very tempting. Even if it does mean going to Texas. Must contemplate my ability to afford this.
I want to come so badly, but you see, if I spend money on a trip, I will be kicked out of my house. You don't know how much I want to go though, like I haven't wanted anything this bad in so long it isn't funny.

Wow. Now, how to convince my husband I am not insane...hmmmmm....
