Vampire Con was last weekend!

What do you mean, "What the hell is Vampire Con?"


This was year 2 of the convention, which is basically a big gathering of people who love Vampires. There are Vampire products sold, costume contests, and best of all: Movie Screenings!

Imagine just how goofy the smile on my face was when I found out that they were showing Werner Herzog's 1979 remake of Nosferatu!

The only way I've ever seen this movie was on an old VHS copy, so I HAD to see it projected on a real screen. Film geek aside, the coolest thing about seeing it at this venue was sitting in a theater packed with Vampire fans. It was like watching it with a crowd of myself.

They were even selling Vampire chocolate and Vampire water at the concessions counter!


Countess Lotti throws this event each year, and she really does a great job. It's so much fun hanging out with a breed of fan who are familiar with more than just Twilight. Don't get me wrong...I'll be at the theater this weekend to see Eclipse, but there's definitely a difference in the vibe.

And Vampire WATER!

Who knew?

The Book of Eli is on video!

I know a lot of people missed this one while it was in the theaters, so I wanted to recommend it as a rental...not just because I worked on it, but because it's a damn fun movie. When I came onto the project (which was toward the end,) the first thing I asked was to see the film. The opening seven minutes were great, I was excited by the end of the first twenty, and when it was all over, I was thrilled to be working on a GOOD movie.

So by all means, rent it, netflix it, iphone it. It's a lot of fun.

My Mom took this of me over Xmas when I was in Omaha. I was excited because it was the first poster I'd seen for the movie in an actual theater. No idea why I look so somber...maybe I was getting psyched up for being snowed into the house for the next 3 days. :)
