I need to have a button on my desk, like the Bat signal, or to be more precise the Bat phone. It would have been very handy last night when I found out that none other than Mr. Tim Curry was doing a small reading at a museum here in Los Angeles. I screeched at decibels only dogs could hear and then proceeded to call, text and telekinetically try to link up with Pinky to see if she would go with me. Finally, the text message, “TIM CURRY EMERGENCY, TIM CURRY EMERGENCY!” Got her to call me, and ask “What’s a Tim Curry Emergency?” LOL, you see one of my all time favorite movies is Clue. It’s brilliant! And for the longest time I have been working on a cast piece where every cast member signs in their character color. I know I’m anal. LOL… Well, I still need Tim Curry, Martin Mull, and Christopher Lloyd. And I just found, after 15 years of searching the uber rare original promo Mobile from 1985 when Clue was released on videocassette… yep, VHS baby, I was like 5 and I remember asking the video clerk for it. Anyway, this is a very long intro, but needless to say, I have been waiting for YEARS to meet Mr. Tim Curry… Cross your fingers folks…

2:04 p.m. – Pinky just arrived and we are headed out the door. She is sick, but is still going with me. I think it’s because she is afraid I will lose conscious thought if I see Mr. Tim Curry. She would be right.

2:36 p.m. – We just parked… 15 bucks… ah well… It’s free admission to the actual museum and the museum grounds so it’s going to a good cause at least. This event is a reading of short stories being held at one of the amphitheatres.

2:45 p.m. – Holy crap, there’s a tram you have to take to get up there… Man, oh man. This just shows how much I have yet to see in LA. Sigh… Pinky has never been here either!

3:15 p.m. – We just arrived. The show started fifteen minutes ago. I actually would have bought tickets but since I found out last minute there was no way. It was sold out… Ah well, Next time…

3:22 p.m. – Everyone here is so nice. They are just letting us walk around the auditorium even without a ticket. Lol… I think we are the first people ever to come here looking for an autograph! Lol…

3:35 p.m. – Okay, I think we found the stage door. We’re not sure though…

3:38 p.m. – The view is incredible… I have to take some photos…

3:41 p.m. – It’s pretty windy up here. We are hanging back behind a giant wall to protect ourselves. Pinky is showing me her Duran Duran tattoo… She had Nick Rhodes sign her leg… lol… That was in CB’s Duran Duran report…

3:43 p.m. – P.S. The tattoo looks good!

3:49 p.m. – I have so much stuff for Tim Curry, but I only brought my main Clue: The Movie piece, my Clue: The Movie mobile and a Rocky Horror DVD. I limited myself, because I just can’t ask for tons from people I really like. It’s just hard, because I would rather have the moment.

3:53 p.m. – This is such a weird venue. We’re debating about where to go, where to stand, should we be in the front…

4:04 p.m. – Hmmmm… I see some people milling about… I’m losing a tad bit of hope here… It’s not that Tim Curry wouldn’t do it, but it’s finding him, or finding out where he would leave from…

4:15 p.m. – Oh, people are leaving… I think it’s over… or intermission…

4:19 p.m. – It’s Pinky’s idea to split up. She’s going up where the crowd is leaving, I’m staying here. Break!

4:25 p.m. – Okay, well… still nothings… Wait…

4:26 p.m. – I hear Pinky yelling for me… Oh Lord, I’m losing consciousness…

4:28 p.m. – I run up and Pinky’s like, “Mike, he’s right here, he’s right here…”

4:30 p.m. – Here’s where I black out.

4:31 p.m. – Pinky has made some friends, in the short few minutes she has left me and they are so nice. Encouraging me to go up to Tim Curry. I get my mobile out and give Pinky my other Clue piece. I have my gold paint pen ready… Wadsworth doesn’t really have a “color” per se, so after going through shades of blue, copper, silver and gold. I chose gold.

4:32 p.m. – Wow, I’m really crazy.

4:33 p.m. – Tim Curry is in the middle of a conversation, so I’m just waiting patiently, I hate when people bother people, so we are hanging back. Pinky turns to me and says, “I’m going to have to go up to him aren’t I?” I say “Yeah, I think so cause I will faint.” So she walks over once there’s a break in his conversation and says “I’m sorry Mr. Curry we are huge fans and would you mind signing a couple autographs?”

4:34 p.m. – Tim Curry says, “Sure.”

I then whip out the gold paint pen, Pinky gets hers signed, and then I pull out the mobile I have been searching for, for 15 years and ask him to sign this. I tell him what it is, and Tim says, “Oh yes, I remember that from a long way back.” He is very cordial and indulged my nuttiness. Then he takes pics with both Pinky and I. Another guy did jump in, and get one as well. I don’t blame the guy, I mean when you get an opportunity you have to take it.

4:36 p.m. – I am on cloud nine, and when I see the coast clear, I literally do the Xander Happy Dance from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Any opportunity to put Buffy into a happy moment I take it.

Anyway, Pinky and I decide to take a stroll around the grounds of the museum. Check out our little photo gallery below!

Pinky said that this lovely sculpture garden reminds her of pieces of poo floating in a toilet.
