03.28.06Alamo South Lamar So that let out just in time to get a decent spot in the line for Harryhausen and King Kong. Fortunately some friends showed up when a separate line to buy books started up so i could save my spot while getting the overpriced coffee table book to get him to sign. Luckily he's signing afterwards because the line's really long.

King Kong... I'm still not in love with it. Maybe it's because I never saw it when I was a kid, but it doesn't have a hold over me like a lot of others. I think it's pretty slow and has a weird structure and doesn't really make that much sense... there are some good things about it too of course... i like how the movie draws sympathy for the monster and the long silent sequence with Driscoll on Skull Island is really cool... but I dunno, I just don't love it.

But afterward, it was cool to hear Harryhausen talk for a bit, then the dude who was at BNAT to show us a 2 minute trailer of this Edgar Allen Poe stop-animated short was there to show us the 6 minute full version... that was basically the same. Then they showed 2 minutes of a movie that looked really funny but I have no idea what it is or if I'll ever see it again.

afterward I managed to get my book and my Clash of the Titans DVD signed, which was awesome.
