The Free-Movie Rich Get Free-Movie Richer
I just returned from a 5-day trip to Tunisia (about which I hope to write more later) to discover that I've won a free pass to every film at the Raindance Film Festival. Given how many free screenings I'm expecting to see over the next few month, this doesn't seem entirely fair, but that's not going to stop me from spending most of every day next week gorging myself on movies. (The festival actually starts tonight, but my co-author and I are contractually obligated to deliver "The Government Manual for New Wizards," our sequel to The Government Manual for New Superheroes, by October 1, so I doubt I'll have much movie-gorging time for the next few days.)
(NOTE: IF YOU ARE MY FRIEND HUDA, PLEASE IGNORE THE PREVIOUS PARAGRAPH AND READ THE FOLLOWING ONE INSTEAD.)
I just returned from a 5-day trip to Tunisia (about which I hope to write more later) to discover that I've won a free pass to every film at the Raindance Film Festival. Unfortunately, I plan to spend all next week hard at work on a long-overdue film treatment for my producer friend Huda, so I won't be able to go to any screenings. I'll probably give my pass to my identical twin Jackbo, so if anybody were to think they saw me spending all day at Raindance when I should be working on my treatment for Huda, it would an entirely different person who looks exactly like me but goes out and does fun things when I am hard at work.
