Almost Famous Director Cameron Crowe Signs Autographs And Meets Fans Plus A Chance Meeting With Hilary Swank!

People always ask me, “What’s your favorite movie?” And I really can’t answer that question… I mean how can you pick between The Breakfast Club, Troop Beverly Hills, Clue: The Movie, Alien, and so many more… However, there is one movie that sometimes I feel edges out the rest… That movie is Almost Famous… The Cameron Crowe film, that to me personifies a time in life that passes by way too quickly. I found out that none other than Mr. Cameron Crowe is doing a rare q and a to discuss not one of his films, but Harold and Maude… lol… So, Pinky, Scotty and I headed down to see if we could meet Mr. Cameron Crowe!

6:45 p.m. – We just arrived at the theatre. We’re the only ones here lol… This isn’t a really highly publicized event so I wasn’t sure if there would be anyone else even here.

7:02 p.m. – I have my Almost Famous mini poster and a Say Anything mini poster… Oh, and a Fast Times At Ridgemont High mini poster as well.. lol.. I always forget about that.

7:06 p.m. – Scotty brought a couple DVD’s and Pinky she just wants a photo.

7:11 p.m. – I love going to events that are super chill… It’s just so nice without all that pressure of having hundreds of people or dealers or things like that….

7:18 p.m. – Cameron Crowe has always been a huge name to me. I mean I know a lot of people don’t get jazzed for director’s but to me they make the film! lol…

7:22 p.m. – The line is getting pretty long for the screening. It they were actually showing one of Cameron Crowe’s movies i would have totally gone, but since it’s not…. LOL.. I figured I would just wait outside for him to show up.

7:34 p.m. – The crowd has dissipated… and it’s just us… the lone threesome on the sidewalk. The three dorks waiting for Cameron Crowe… lol…

7:45 p.m. – Oh, I forgot to mention that Pinky brought her dog who is NOT named after Sam Trammell from True Blood but rather his character in True Blood… who is also named Sam… Hmmm interesting turn of events… lol…

7:48 p.m. – The dog is chasing a bug with his nose… I swear this dog should have his own website. Everyone walking down the street… “What kind of dog is that?” I mean it’s crazy times.

7:51 p.m. – Again, it just happened again. If I’m ever single, I’m borrowing Sammy, cause let me tell you, this dog gets play.

7:54 p.m. – Oh my God, another person is coming over, this time she is running across the street towards the dog… And… Holy shit, it’s two time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank! Holy crap!
