I would never have gone to the I'm So Over Books talk if I had not of stumbled into this talk;
Digital Big Bang: expanding horizons for the work of writers
Once I heard Marc talking here and having bought his book and got him to sign it
I decided to check out his I'm So Over Books talk.
|This is an example of why I don't work as a photographer. Sorry Marc.|
But the thought came into my head that maybe somebody had suggested this mood before I got there and I would only make a fool of myself for suggesting it again, if most the audience didn't know that I was late to this talk.
I thought surely nobody has suggested it yet, so I put my hand up when he asked for another mood and I said Melancholia, instead of melancholy ... doh!
And then Marc just said,"We've already had that one."
So trying to think quick I said "Baseball", trying to direct him to review Field of Dreams.
Marc said,"how is Baseball a feeling?"
Then I mumbled "baseballish", and wished I had never raised my hand in the first place.
He then said,"baseball, let me see. Madonna's movie about the women's baseball team", and then he went on to review a movie that I didn't like at all.
But he did say Liev Schreiber did one of the best Australian accents ever in film by an American.
A thought popped into my head that I should try and win a pass to it when it is released, just to see if fate would send me to it.
I entered two competitions for a double pass to see this movie ... one entry for each comp, and on one of them I was successful.
But not only was it a preview, it was a Q&A with the director and the young star of the film.

Oh, and for those who don't know who PJ Hogan is, he made the following two movies -
