Seems like every time a Van meetup is announced, I've got a schedule conflict. :(

I can't make it to this meetup, but are any Vancouverites interested in going to the Snakes on a Plane premiere? I am organizing a big group of people that are going to the last show of the night on Friday Aug. 18 at the Paramount Vancouver.

Well, I will be there. See all those of you who make it (I might be slightly late).

I'll be there. As a note for people coming later, the Frog's only open 'till 11pm, so don't be too late!

As for SoaP, I'm tired of the whole thing already, and I'm waiting a while before I go see it. Guess the meme's played out for me.

See you guys tomorrow night =)

No... I don't think I'll give the Industry my $12 unless SoaP is actually a decent movie. Then again, $12 is somewhat little to play to be part of a social movement. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out; a genuine cult movie or a crappy movie with unexpectedly amazing PR.

I keep wondering if SLJ got suckered on a contract (do "x" number of films and we'll give you $$$y for this one) and he just wanted to show that this was the case... and unexpectedly (?) created a fanbase out of a few words (which was pretty safe - he's got a legitimate fanbase, one "sofisticated enough" to admire his cynicism cum [perhaps in 20/20] optimism.)

Oh ... shit. Dude. Mmetaname. I missed the part about draining a keg before going.

Are you thinking of "... i it's lame, we'll lambast it execrably on teh tubes..." or "AAARRGHGHGHG! STUPID MOVIE, SMASH!?"

The layers of irony have gotten so thick I am a little confused about why I am actually into it. But I am certain that drinking a keg and then going to this movie is going to be a blast.

Have fun at the meetup!

I was going to go, and everything, then the internets at my work crapped out this afternoon, and I couldn't remember which pub it was at :(

Hope you all had a good time, guys, The Black Frog looks great.

Ditto. Sorry I missed it.

It was a blast seeing a few people I've met before and also hanging out with Devon and lunalaguna =)

I only took a couple of snapshots.
