I went and saw the premiere of Cyrus with John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill. Reilly is HILARIOUS, Hill is a d-bag.
Here's a crappy iphone pic:
And I have to thank ONTD for having those Taqwacore posts, because they were showing and I went to see it and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend it. I got to meet the actors and directors after the screening/Q&A and they were so ridiculously nice and appreciative. I told them how much I enjoyed the movie and they thanked me and the hottie on my left (yes, the mohawk dude really is that INSANELY gorgeous in real life) gave me a hug.
Dominic Sands, Eyad Zahra, and Bobby Naderi
Then I saw the world premiere of MacGruber which I thought was hilarious, but that's only because I like the actual skit from SNL. Everyone was from the cast was there, including Val Kilmer but he left before the Q&A. Can I just say that Jorma Taccone is fucking PRECIOUS?! He was so excited to be there lol. Ryan Philippe's voice is hella low, Kristen and Will weren't too talkative during the Q&A, Jorma did most of it. Seth Meyers sat 2 rows away from me, and I ran into Doug Benson for like the 5th time.

Jorma, Ryan, Kristen, Will
And now for the good stuff.
So my friend and I got pictures with Sean Lennon before his performance with JGL's production company "www.hitRECORD.org) on Tuesday, but after the show I got to talk to him. And give him a light for his cigarette. Everyone had left and my friends were still standing in the convention center trying to figure out where our other friends were, and he was walking towards the door when he turns around and says "Does anyone have a light?" and for some reason unknown to me, I was all "Oh yeah, I do." (IDK Y'ALL, IDEK.) So I walk over to give him my lighter that I miraculously found in the black hole that is my purse and he takes and goes "Do you want to escort me outside since I can't light up in here?" (I shit you not that's exactly what he said) So I'm all lulz ok sure and so we go outside and proceed to:
-talk about the weather
-determine that I am not Mexican, Indian but that I'm actually Bengali
-figure out somewhere to eat late at night (Magnolia Cafe)
And I could tell you all the nuances of the conversation but I'll stop here. And JGL retweeted me during the show.
Sean Lennon, duh
And so on the last night, Saturday, JGL was actually in town to host a hitRECORD event, so I went. It was at the Alamo Drafthouse and it was AWESOMEEEE. Booze+live music+dance party= good times. I'll quit with the words and just post pictures. Also, check out hitRECORD.org.
PRECIOUS. Got excited when I brought up that he retweeted me, was super nice, definitely tipsy. And bald.
Jumped up on stage and sang Twist and Shout
Jumped on tables and started dancing
his bald head in all its glory
