Fanboy Fail Fridays! 2 Fails In One Day! Doh! Getting The Slip From Daryl Hannah & Missing Ewan McGregor By 30 Seconds! Sigh…

You know…. There are just those days when you should pack it all in and just call it a night. Today, is one of those days.

Now, you see Scotty and I are both pretty desperate to get Daryl Hannah. I’m a huge fan and Scotty, while a fan, needs her on his Steel Magnolias one sheet poster.

I have some of the most random crap for Daryl Hannah. I have an original counter Standee for Roxanne that is quite literally a house… that is pretty cool along with a die cut Splash counter standee as well. Yep, I’m all about the random cool stuff.

So, even though it’s hard for me to get anywhere these days, I dart traffic, swear at people, but I finally find parking and make it over.

Now, I figured I would check this event out and then if it was a bust head over to a talk show taping for Ewan McGregor. In fact, the kicker is, I wasn’t even going to go for Daryl Hannah because I thought it was inaccessible but Scotty was hot on the scene and convinced me it was easy.

Sigh…. What to do… What to do… Do I go for the sure thing or head off to try my luck at someone who isn’t out that often… Sigh… Double sigh…

So, I arrived at the Daryl Hannah event and saw Scotty with his Steel Magnolias one sheet at the ready. I think it always must be funny to be walking down Sunset Blvd and see someone with a Steel Magnolias poster just standing there. LOL.. I’ve been that guy, trust me. For that matter how odd it must be to see a six foot three guy holding a miniature Roxanne counter standee. LOL…

After seeing this dude, who desperately wanted to be Adam Lambert… And let me tell you, there’s no one who wants to be Adam Lambert. At this point, I think Adam Lambert is like, “Man, I’m totally over the guyliner just let me do musical theater please… Please!” LOL…

We decide that this could be a bust. It’s 6:30 and then one of the guys from the event asks us who we are waiting for… I just say, “Daryl Hannah.” He said, “Well, we’ve had lots on cancellations and all the honorees are not coming.”

Wait… The people you’re honoring have cancelled? Uhhhhhhh…. Okay…

After debating for a second, we decide to try to make Ewan McGregor. Daryl Hannah gave us the slip once again. I swear she’s a tricky one!

One Fanboy Fail down…

We leap into Scotty’s car and drive like Banshee’s in heat. I don’t know how he does it, but Scott is able to make his car shrink to fit spots I would never have been able to squeeze in… With or without a car.

Weaving through side streets we hit a shit ton of traffic. Finally, I tell Scotty. Just park and we’ll walk because we’re not going to make it otherwise. So, we did.

And then it’s time to run… And run we did… For the love of the McGregor! We’re huffing it down the street, we see a black town car leave and joke that must be Ewan… LOL…

Still we persist on, we round the corner and then we see a dreaded site… The site every collector fears… 20 graphers waving and thanking someone for coming over to sign. Yep, not only did Ewan sign, he did multiples and literally finished as we got there. Seriously? 30 seconds earlier and we would have made it.

Sadness abounds in the hearts of men…

Of course CB had to try and rub it in, but what he forgets is… I watched Christian Bale diss CB Right to his face. And that memory my friends overpowers any fail and will bring a smile to face no matter how many fails I get. In fact, I think I have a photo somewhere….

Seriously though, all I could do is laugh… Shit happens… And today, shit happened to me!

Ah well…

Until next time kids…
