As in, my second day at Sundance, not the second day of the festival.
Randi and Matt join me for The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle, a totally bizarro movie about janitors who eat prototype cookies and get impregnated with little blue fish. Well, just the guys get pregnant. Love everyone in it including Vince Vieluf and Marshall Allman. It is a treat to see Tania Raymonde in it, the actress who plays Alex on Lost, and whom I have had a girl crush on since she her first episode.
Become obsessed with that Pendleton blanket-turned-sweater.
Jump out of the car at Holiday Cinemas just in time to meet Dirk and Kathryn going inside for Short Program III. Worst short: the one by former BYU film students. Sorry. Best shorts: Pencil Face, which luckily for you, can be watched here. The opening images are amazing. 2 Birds, from Iceland, horrifying but totally beautiful. And Instead of Abracadabra, from Sweden. Of course my favorite is Swedish. About a 25 year old mustachioed magic freak living with his parents. Completely charming and hilarious. You can download if from iTunes for free until 1/25, along with a handful of other shorts, but I can’t vouch for any of the others yet.
Late night shuttle ride to the lot.
