Mission Accomplished

Last night was so incredibly fun ... it was a late night and I've got 2 important meetings today so I'm going to post these few pictures for right now and then a full post later on today (maybe this evening). Believe me, I've got tons of stuff for today's post but just no time to write it all right now.

Thanks to my very good friend Harlan, I was fortunate enough to get to attend the Hollywood premiere of Brokeback Mountain! It was the funnest night ever ... here are some pictures from the red carpet:

Jim and I had a fun time of finding all the celebs in the audience ... here are the ones we noticed ... Jake Gyllenhaal (of course), Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christopher Guest, Linda Cardellini, Lindsay Lohan, Ryan Carnes, Christian Slater, Thora Birch, Elliot Gould, Randy Quaid and Ang Lee. When Ang introduced the movie he mentioned that Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams couldn't attend because they were home, in Brooklyn, taking care of their new baby Matilda Rose. [Source, Source]

Seeing the movie for the second time, I was able to appreciate it more. The first time I saw the movie I was so geeked that I was screening the film so early that I don't think I was paying very close attention ... this time, I really soaked in everything the movie had to offer. The poignancy had more of an effect on me ... it was also interesting hearing the audience react to things in the movie (laughing in certain parts, sobbing in others). I really, really liked the movie more seeing it for the second time. Detroit doesn't get the movie until January 2006 but the movie does open on December 9th in select major cities. It is an amazing film ... it will be very interesting to see how the world receives it.

Anyways ... after the premiere we hit the afterparty ... there was scrumptious food and strong drink everywhere you looked. It was amazing! I was bummed that Heath Ledger wasn't there but I did make a point to find Jakey poo and go over to say hello ...

Jake was so nice. He knew who was I was and was very happy to take a picture with me. We talked briefly about the movie and then I let him be. Le sigh indeed! We ran into Lindsay Lohan outside but she was busy talking to people so I didn't want to bother her ... she saw me and came over and goes "I know you!" Then she asked "Are we gonna do a picture or what?" She, too, was very cool ... we talked a bit about the blog which she said she loved. Erik told me that my mission for the evening was not to meet Jake, it was to find Lindsay and tell her how much he loves her and her music. I told her this and she loved it ... she was very kickass. It was just a very fun experience overall.

Harlan is my hero ... I will never be able to thank him and everyone at Focus Features enough for everything they've done for me. I feel like the luckiest person in the world.

I have to give a shout out to Tom (pictured above with the PITNB sticker) and send out lots of Pink love to Shannon.

Oy! It was a late night and now I have to get going again ... I will have a full post later on today. Lates y'all!!!
