Throwback Thurs! Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World! Michael Cera! Edgar Wright! Anna Kendrick! Tons More!

It’s so funny, yesterday… I was flipping through my books and books of signed posters and came upon my Scott Pilgrim signed piece. I was like… Awwww what a fun event. Smash cut, and today’s Throwback Thurs so what a perfect time to recap the event!

Holla!

I promise to never write that again. Holla! I lied.

It really was an epic signing, and Erica and I were super lucky to get in! Rock on!

On Thursday November 11th, a very special event took place at Amoeba Music on Sunset. It was a special cast signing of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. The signing featured 10 members of the cast and creative team behind the film including Edgar Wright, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Webber, Brandon Routh, Anna Kendrick, Satya Bhabha, and Johnny Simmons. Passes went on sale on November 9th, and sadly Erica and I only got standby passes. So, without a concrete definite pass we were going in the hopes we could get in. Sigh…

4:34 p.m. – I just arrived at the Amoeba… The first 200 people got guaranteed passes, Erica and I… well, we only got the standby passes… grrr… but here I am in the standby line. Standing in front of the Amoeba Music on Sunset… sigh…

4:43 p.m. – I just realized I wrote Sigh, like three times already. Its damn cold… and I mean damn cold… Ugh…

5:01 p.m. – Erica just got here… she forgot her jacket so she’s going back to her car.

5:11 p.m. – Erica is back from the car, but now forgot her camera so she’s going back to the car to get the camera. I think she’s playing me cause she has a cold and doesn’t want to stand here in the arctic tundra… Harrumph I say!

5:23 p.m. – This is such a cool event. DVD signings are kinda rare, but having the full cast present, that’s pretty neat. Well, almost the full cast. I wish I had a poster, but all I have is the DVD. Usually you can only get the item purchased signed, but they are letting you get one ITEM signed, which is pretty nice considering.

5:31 p.m. – There are about 45 people in front of me in the stand by line and 200 people in front of us… sigh… I have no idea if we’re going to get in, but that’s a lot of people! Lol…

5:47 p.m. – I’m shocked Scott Pilgrim didn’t do better in the theatres, cause it was a kick ass movie, and very fun to watch.

5:56 p.m. – There is a man standing at the newspaper rack dancing while waiting for the bus. Only in Hollywood… everyone’s got a dream, what’s your dream? Lol… I just quoted Pretty Woman, I must be freezing…

6:03 p.m. – Erica wants to get food, but I don’t want to leave the line, and I don’t want to eat in the freezing cold. So probably not… lol…

6:09 p.m. – Dammit, now I’m hungry! I really hope they start on time… sigh…

6:20 p.m. – It looks like those bastard guaranteed tickets are going in now… They get to be warm… grrrr… lol… If they start signing on time we should be okay depending on how long the cast is scheduled to stay.

6:31 p.m. – The dancing man is getting on his bus… goodbye dancing man! Have a good one! Lol… My brain is frozen…

6:41 p.m. – Erica is going in side the Amoeba to see what’s going on…

6:52 p.m. – They haven’t started the signing yet… dammit! Sigh… see… another sigh… grumble… lol…

6:57 p.m. –Oh wait, okay now people are moving inside. I feel like a beggar standing outside the Amoeba window watching the line to see what’s going on. Like Oliver on the cold London streets begging for food.

7:11 p.m. – The cold London streets comment might have been a tad melodramatic… lol… Ah well…

7:24 p.m. – It looks like the line is moving pretty slowly. Shit… We haven’t moved out here, but I’m not shocked… It’s tough when you have like 10 people signing…

7:43 p.m. – Okay that Jack in the Box does sound good just about now…

8:01 p.m. – A guy just showed up in costume! Lol… I really admire the commitment but shouldn’t you have shown up earlier? I mean it’s like after eight p.m. and….

8:14 p.m. – We’re moving! They are taking a few people at a time and filtering them in! Whoo Hoo!

8:19 p.m. – Okay we are in! Yay, we’re now defrosting! Whoo hoo!

8:22 p.m. – The line is still pretty long inside… Still, I feel better now cause we will probably get in. That’s cool! I’m stoked… but not as stoked as Erica who just scored us a couple mini posters! She has this way… I swear girls can get away with so much. 6’3 men… not as much, lol…

8:25 p.m. – Yay for the mini posters!

8:33 p.m. – The line is moving pretty well now… that’s cool. They are not letting pictures to be taken in line, but once you are up there you can take some before you get up to the table….

Aubrey is really funny, and thought that Erica’s blu tooth was a spy cam… how funny is that, cause if it was a spy cam… then we would have photo’s/videos from the line, and why would we have that… heh..heh…heh…

5:58 p.m. – Finally Edgar Wright is last, and is his usual friendly self. I met Edgar when he did a signing for Spaced a couple years ago. Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies so I’m glad that he’s got the success he deserves! And then we’re done, fast furious and chilly but a kick ass night, and our posters look amazing! Thanks again guys!
