Won’t you come see about me?
I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving me everything inside and out and
Love’s strange so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on
Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby
Excuse me while I take a break from bringing back the Alex Vanderpool era to spend one day bringing back the Larry Blackman era. Just one day.
Got a text message from Sarah this morning telling me they were casting for extras in a movie and would I like to go. The Steelers had a late game today (the less said about that the better) so I figured why not.
So the movie is called Adventureland. It’s starring Ryan Reynolds and it’s written and directed by Greg Mottola (who recently made Superbad). It takes place in 1987, and they asked for people to show up dressed appropriately. Casting was from 11-2, and we figured there’d be a huge line by the time we got there at 12:30. Actually, there weren’t. We were in fact, #29 and #30. We would have been #25 and #26 if it weren’t for the fact that our outfits were so incredibly awesome that the local newspaper covering the movie wanted to interview us first. Sarah is as much of a press whore as I am, so of course we were all over that.
Anyway, the reason the newspaper people wanted to interview us is that no one else even really tried. I mean, most everyone was pathetic. I mean, sure people wore shorts and a t-shirt in 1987, but I mean, work for it people.
Anyway, we kinda just thought it’d be a fun way to spend a morning. But at this point I’ll be totally upset if we don’t get called back. Oh well, at the very least I got some press out of it. Well, hopefully, assuming they run the story. In any case, it was worth it just for the looks from the other customers at the restaurant where we had lunch.
Oh, and yes, that is my real hair.
