The more I hear about the This Is The End premiere, the more I’m glad I skipped it. Even though Billy Beer did very well at the premiere (Emma Watson!) sometimes man, it all seems like a lot of work. LOL..
Oh, perhaps I’m getting too old for this shit… Nah! You’re never too old right?!? Plus, I look 25 so there’s that… Yeah, I’m high on medication. God bless the happy pills. Anyway, I was happy that Billy Beer did this awesome recap!
Check it out after the jump!
Welcome back to Billy Beer’s Barstool. Today, someone put some money in the jukebox and decided to play some Doors.
“This is the end / Beautiful friend / This is the end / My only friend, the end”
And unlike the song which goes on almost as long as Mike the Fanboy goes on about Channing Tatum,
(Editor’s Note: Ahem… I can not say enough good things about Channing Tatum! M-)
we’re at the Premiere for the new Seth Rogan movie This is the End staring everyone that has ever been in a Seth Rogan movie, and Channing Tatum. OK, I know this movie has some notoriously bad signers, it just looks sooooo funny. I can not resist Danny McBride humor. Every preview I’ve seen looks amazing. Let the adventures begin.
I get there a little on the early side. I wanna make sure to get a good spot for this one. The guy setting up the whole thing helps out and tells us exactly where the drops are going to be. As time goes by, I start hearing the grumbling on who’s going to be there and who’s not going to be there. No Jonah Hill (no big loss), No Franco, No Cera, No Paul Rudd. Yes, McBride, Yes, Rogan, Yes Jay, Yes Craig, and the most important, YES EMMA WATSON! There are a few other names on there, but we’ll stick to the cast, cause Joseph Gordon Levitt is NEVER going to sign!
Well everything is set up, and now it looks like we overshot the drop off. CRAP! I have the option of standing on the other side, but that might be an overshot in the other direction. UGH! This is the part I hate. I decide to stay where I’m at. Now a lot of the regulars are starting to show up. I see Ace, Scotty, and I’m am joined in battle with the amazing Erica.
And by montage I mean, a butt ton of more people have arrived. This is probably the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen here. It’s about 5 deep right now. This is going to be interesting. I always worry when there’s a bunch of people that go to an event and don’t know how to act. Let the arrivals begin!
After a few long limos/non-important people, we have our first real drop. It’s Joey King. I don’t have anything for her, unlike one of the people next to me who has a cast piece for Oz that he still needs her on. I thought I was going to go deaf with him yelling, and she finally crosses. And no matter how loud certain people yelled/scared the crap out of her, she stopped before she got to us.
Next drop! It’s Danny McBride. I love Danny’s sense of humor. He walks around and comes straight for me. I give him the blue sharpie I borrowed from Erica, and signed my picture I had of him as one of the Beastie Boys. I try to get him on my poster, but he’s already passed on by. The sharpie was never to be seen again.
Next we see a walker that looks like Charisma Carpenter. That’s cause it is Charisma Carpenter. We call her over, and she comes again straight to us. I don’t have anything but a blank for her to sign. She asks if I had anything else, and I tell her she can personalize it if she wants which she does. Then I’m lucky enough to get a picture with her. But I’m not lucky enough to remember to zoom out. It’s wouldn’t have been zoomed in if I didn’t have to take a million pictures of everyone for Mike the Fanboy. Grrrrr!
(Editor’s Note: Don’t be dissing on Mike The Fanboy sparky! M-)
There’s Craig Robinson. As expected he waves, and doesn’t do squat. I heard he did it at the after party. Maybe he should drink before the Premiere. You have a limo taking you there Craig, get your drink on. I usually do!
Seth is the next star to arrive. He hasn’t signed the last few times I’ve seen him, but since this is his movie. I’m expecting him to come over, and that’s exactly what he does. Again, they come straight to me. He has his own pen, which is a thin black dried out sharpie. He signs my poster first, and then I’m able to get him on my Beastie Boys picture also. He’s actually being nice. He’s being the Seth I remember from the Kung Fu Panda 2 Premiere. Erica mentions that we had great spots. Famous last words!
Jay is next to arrive. I think I’ve watched She Out of Your League about 10 times this month. Love it! Jay starts a little to out right and is making his way in our direction. All of a sudden, he runs over to the other direction. Noooooo! I’m hoping he comes back, but he finishes the other side and goes to the red carpet.
There’s Paul Rudd! He’s not on the list, but there he is. I really don’t have anything but my poster for him. When he gets to us, he is only signing the items his publicist decides for him to sign. Come on Paul grow a pair, and sign what you want. Although, if he signed what he wants, we probably wouldn’t get anything. He never seems happy to sign for his fans, but I guess he does do it. Oh, he doesn’t sign my poster, but Erica gets him on her Perks of Being a Wallflower poster.￼
There’s another walker, it’s Wilmer. He poses for the ladies, and is on his way.
The next limo arrives, and everyone starts screaming. Emma has arrived, and shit just got CRAZY. She starts right where I was going to stand if I hadn’t stayed where I was at. After my luck with the last couple people, I was thinking here we go again. But she’s making her way towards us. The crowd is getting crazier and crazier.
There are people who showed up late who are trying to reach through 5 rows of people to get their pictures signed, not caring who they’re pushing to make there way in there. The problem is their pushing is making people yell and scream even more. I’m afraid this is going to stop cause people are just being stupid. Luckily, she keeps going and then gets right in front of us.
I got my first photo done, and then Erica got her poster. I put my second picture next to Erica’s poster, and she signs that too. WOW! I can’t believe that just happened.
The funny part was watching her skip the stuff the people had who plowed through 5 rows of fans to get her. She was super nice, and would grab people’s items, and sign them nicely.￼￼￼￼
There’s Carmen Electra. I scream for her. She waves, but doesn’t come over. Bummer!
There’s a couple of other walkers, but that’s pretty much it for the cast. Erica then hands back my 8 x 12 I gave her to help out on if she didn’t have anything for certain people. There’s Danny, Seth, and Emma. Are you Kidding ME!!!??? Erica is a graphing Ninja! I had no idea she was even getting it done. I was too busy focusing on my stuff. Nice Work, and Thank You a Million!
I decide to wait for exits. There are a few places I could stand. A bunch of people go to one area, but I decide to stay right by the doors. Scotty and DVD Dave are there with me.
There’s grumbling that Emma had already left which has brought a girl seriously to tears. Then we hear that she’s still here, and on her way out! Assume the positions! EMMA EMMA! She points to us and comes straight over.
All I have left is my poster which she signs. Scotty gets her to change to silver, and gets her on his almost finished Harry Potter poster. I think he’s still screaming with glee! The only thing that would have been better is if Bella Thorne was there too!
(Editor’s Note: Scotty is Bella Thorne’s #1 Fan! M-)
She takes a couple of pictures, and then makes a dash for her car. The next thing I see is a line of people running for her and her getting in her limo and leaving. Sometimes it’s just dumb luck, and being in the right place at the right time.￼￼￼
Oh, there’s Joey King. Look what happens when you don’t act crazy Picture time!
Well, I find out where the after party is, but I’m going home. I heard they were out partying till 4am, but that’s a little too late for me. There’s no Happy Hour at 4am. Till next time!
