Today is a long day, a long long day… It’s of course I day I was looking forward to and dreading at the same time. The Star Trek Into Darkness movie premiere. Big Big premiere’s like this always mean that it’s going to be a little nuts and it’ll be hot and… so much… LOL…
I am so looking forward to Star Trek it’s my top movie of the summer for sure. I’ve been a Star Trek fan for a long long time and I love what J.J. Abrams is doing to the series. He’s made it accessible and kinda cool which is rare for Star Trek. LOL…
Billy Beer was here a little on the early side. Cough, Cough… Also joining Billy was The Lovely Erica and her friend. There are a few people coming today for sure.
1:09 p.m. – I just got here and Billy Beer is making fun of me for eating Baja Fresh again.
Listen, it’s only a few salsa’s… Okay maybe 14.. Billy likes to exaggerate.
1:43 p.m. – The carpet is pretty cool. It’s also a full street closure which is nice.
I’m excited nervous for this one. It could be an epic fail, or it could be good. Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and Benedict Cumberbatch are not coming which sucks. Sadness…
2:01 p.m. – Karalee is coming to help out as well as Kate another of Billy’s harem. LOL… It’s nice to have a good group to hang out with. It makes the day go by faster and makes it more of an event.
2:21 p.m. – They are painting one of the Star Trek platforms. Odd, they are painting it silver when the white looked good. And they didn’t put the “E” in Darkness up….
2:34 p.m. – I’m literally watching them paint that stage. Which means I’m watching paint dry… Wow… #fanboyproblems.
2:59 p.m. -OTG John is here as well. I got to talk to him for a few…
3:09 p.m. – I have way way too much stuff for this event. Sigh… I over packed… But Karalee said she was going to help “yay!”
3:19 p.m. – Erica and her friend Molly just got back from eating and brought me a Coke Zero…. Breakfast of champions.
4:15 p.m. – Billy is sleeping and Karalee just arrived! It’s starting to get a lot fuller. Is that a word? Fuller? I’m not sure it’s grammatically correct.
4:41 p.m. – One unseemly jackass has decided to park his fat roly polly ass behind us. Ugh… Karalee almost threw up, but I told her not to… Why Lord why?
4:54 p.m. – Bill is trying to be funny… This is Karalee and I with our Billy isn’t funny face.
5:16 p.m. – Obligatory Star Trek Into Darkness Vulcan salute photo. Had to be done, I mean hello!
5:32 p.m. – Finally the stage is complete! Woo Hoo!
5:49 p.m. – Some random people are getting a group photo on that stage. I wonder if the Mike The Fanboy family can do that? Hmmm group photo.
6:01 p.m. – Okay, start now… Start…
6:19 p.m. – There’s a party bus arriving..
Holy carp, it’s Leonard Nimoy! Leonard Nimoy is riding shotgun in a party bus!
He’s on the carpet but we keep trying to call him over. I have my figure that got ruined in the rain I’m holding out… Leonard is coming over but he’s super far away. Dammit! He signed like seven and went back across. Sigh…
6:21 p.m. – Well that was a bummer….
6:24 p.m. – There’s writer Damon Lindelof.
Erica is calling for him but he’s just to the right of us… Grumble.
6:33 p.m. – J.J. Abrams! He’s crossing over and signing up a storm. Oh fuck me. He’s going the other way. Seriously? Security is doing this on purpose now.
6:39 p.m. – J.J. is literally signing his life away. He finishes the row to the right and comes back and signs for us and down the line our way.
I got him on my mini poster, my Empire magazine cover and Karalee got him on my Super 8 mini poster as well. Super cool guy.
6:43 p.m. – It’s John Cho! he’s coming over and signing quite a bit actually. I got him on my Empire, my Star Trek teaser poster but missed him on one mini poster and an individual mini poster… Sigh… Ah well…
6:52 p.m. – Zoe Saldana! She’s coming over but going the other way. Dammit! Come on Saldana! She signs for a section but doesn’t come anywhere near us. Grumble.
6:55 p.m. – Ah, that blows… I thought for sure we would get Zoe!
7:01 p.m. – Chris Pine! He’s crossing and signing up a storm.
Sadly, his signature, which used to be a nice full “Chris Pine” has become a c squiggle p…
I got him on my Empire magazine, my mini poster, my mini teaser poster, and my individual poster as well.
7:03 p.m. – Peter Weller is here. He’s coming right on over and signing away. I’ve never seen Peter out but he’s funny in a cranky way. I brought a Robocop mini poster for him. He was very eager to sign it!
I got a poster for Billy as well. He and J.J. tag team signed down the line… Yes, J.J. is still going!
7:05 p.m. – Bruce Greenwood dropped and signed and didn’t get to us but is coming back our way now.
He’s so nice. He signed a couple Star Trek things and my Super 8 mini poster for me. Pretty awesome!
7:11 p.m. – Chris Pine is done and is getting blotted by his handlers before going back to the carpet. LOL… Only in Hollywood!
7:15 p.m. – Karl Urban! He’s coming over as well and signing his life away. So cool.
Ironically, he usually just gives a “KU” and today it’s like a “KU” with a squiggle and sometimes an XX. lol…
I got him on my Empire magazine, teaser mini, an individual mini poster, and the official mini poster. He signed a lot for people!
7:18 p.m. – There’s Alice Eve she’s signing her life away as well. Pretty damn nice.
I asked her to sign my Empire magazine and she’s like leaning in for a picture and I was like, uhhhhh “She’s like, wait you didn’t want that did you?” LOL… It was honestly so funny.
She signed both mini posters and the Empire magazine. Karalee’s been working it with the teaser mini poster! I’m going to get her an autograph badge of honor!
7:21 p.m. – There’s Zachary Quinto! Interesting fashion choice. He’s coming on over…
He signs but then gets Billy photo and stops.
What! He did like 10 autographs and then just went to the carpet and stood there for at least 5-9 minutes before going on. Harrumph… Angry Theo to you!
7:27 p.m. – Oh damn, there’s the Beckinsale! Kate Beckinsale… OMG Kate Beckinsale mixed with Star Trek is a little too much for little old me. She looks amazing.
And that kids… as we say…. is that. I’m debating if I should stick around for departures… I would love to get Leonard Nimoy… What to do… What to do…
I’m going to stay or maybe I’ll leave… Ugh… (this did go on for an hour… Me debating) I’m going to have my recap about the Star Trek after party later on today! Keep an eye out for it!
Until next time kids…
