It’s Fanboy Fail Friday!
As you saw yesterday, or could have seen yesterday… Should have seen yesterday?
Anyway, as published yesterday, Fear The Walking Dead star Alycia Debnam-Carey was out and about yesterday on a local talk show.
Now, I went to meet Mr. Pierce Brosnan.
I’ve never been a huge 007 fan but Mars Attacks… One of the best movies of all time. I love it. It’s a true Tim Burton classic.
“We know they’re extremely advanced technologically, which suggests – rightfully so – that they’re peaceful. An advanced civilization, by definition, is not barbaric.”
There are so many good quotes from that movie. I love it.
So, of course I needed to get Pierce to sign my Mars Attacks! poster. I already have Martin Short, Tim Burton, Jack Black, and Annette Benning on it.
There wasn’t many people when I arrived but as time ticked out… More and more showed up.
I’m telling you, it was hot and miserable. I wouldn’t have even come today if I knew it would be on this side. I thought it would be lined up and casual. Instead it’s the mosh pit.
The problem is this. When you have a project like a cast poster for a film like Mars Attacks! you don’t just want a scribble on it, you want it done right. If I had an 8×10 photo, I could get a scribble, but I don’t want him to sign over someone or screw it up.
Anyway, Pierce Brosnan was leaving and he came over. he stopped at the fence and signed for people there over and over for what seemed like forever.
Then he came to our side and it was madness. I was a little shocked. And Again, when you want something signed right… There’s a good chance you’re going to get screwed.
And alas, I got skipped.
I was a little irritated but you know, I would rather not get something than get something ruined.
So, It’s a Fanboy Fail for sure.
Shaken, not stirred. Doh!
Until next time kids…
