|10:27 pm - Booya! B-Fest!|
We got our tickets to B-Fest!
I'm pretty thrilled about that, since last year we got on a waiting list immediately and didn't get tickets until very shortly before the festival. Somehow our big group got tickets damn near instantly this year, which is a load off everybody's minds. Of course, now we need to think about hotel accommodations and transportation, but we've got some time. Just a few more weeks, and I'll be able to sit uncomfortably through 24 hours of B-movies and cult classics. I can't wait!
The lineup this year is fantastic:
Brain That Wouldn't Die
Revenge of the Creature in 3-D
The Wizard of Speed and Time (Short version)
Plan 9 From Outer Space
Invasion of the Star Creatures
The Hypnotic Eye
Hot Rods to Hell
The Incredible Melting Man
King Kong vs. Godzilla
Can you tell I'm excited? I'm excited.

I made the call at 10:30:05, by the Weather Channel, and got through on the first try. I suspect I may actually have been first in line.
I know a number of other B-Fest regulars (the guy who makes the CDs and his group) stay at a Best Western a few blocks away; that's where I'd figured we'd end up too. There aren't a lot of hotels in the immediate area.
Hmmm... I wonder if last year's lackluster lineup made tickets easier to come by this year... I doubt it, though.
As for accomodations, I assume we'll be reserving rooms in advance. Were you thinking we'd all fend for ourselves, or that we'd figure out our needs and one person would make the reservations for the group?
I hear there were still tickets available at noon today.
I figured one person would make the reservations. If Nick and Liz don't mind sharing we should only need two rooms. I think we can all be trusted not to molest anyone in the night, and we'll probably be so tired we'll just crash anyway.
But can we trust them not to molest anyone during the night? After all, they are on the Rocky Horror cast.
All right! Sorry this has been so long in coming, but I do have a response from Nick and Liz. They're perfectly happy to share a room with people.
We'll know how early you called when we pick up the tickets. If they're numbered 001-008 you'll be getting further praise ^_^
