Jensen Ackles - Ten Inch Hero Screening & Music Video  
Wow, when it rains it pours. At this rate I hope the deluge continues.

Just found out that Jensen's movie (another non-horror one, yay!) is airing here in LA too for a screening. I have been dying to see Ten Inch Hero ever since a friend of mine saw it an raved about how reallly good it is. She says it's like Mystic Pizza meets Sixteen Candles and it was filmed both in Long Beach and Santa Cruz, CA where we know a lot of the locations.

[Brate] sent me a note that Betsy Morris (the writer behind Jensen's movie "Ten Inch Hero") is going to have a screening of "Ten Inch Hero" in Los Angeles on Monday November 24 at 7:30 pm. Her post is up on [blogger]

Regent Showcase Theater
614 N. La Brea Avenue (at Melrose)
Los Angeles, California 90036

Cost is $10 at the door.
Free street parking starting at 7 pm.

"So, if you're coming to CA for Thanksgiving break, this is your chance to see the film on the big, big screen! Please spread the word--we know it's short notice and we'd like to get the word out to as many people as possible! Thanks, and we'll see you in the theater! --Betsy"

Also, there's a really nice music video that's just been posted by Betsy which was created by Nisha up on You Tube that gives a good sense of Jensen and the other characters in the movie without actually showing too many spoilers.

PS I have no Jensen in Ten Inch Hero icons. Now that's just wrong somehow.

And here I'll be in LA on Monday, Nov. 24. BUT I'll be leaving on a jet plane in the early afternoon. Darn!

I know you haven't been going to the Stargate Creation cons, but I'll be in Burbank for the weekend. I don't suppose you'll be anywhere in the area? Because as you know, there is a LOT of downtime at a Creation con and it would be great to see you!

Sorry for randomly accosting you like this :)
(I happened to surf by from a link in the SPN newsletter.)

I don't really follow the SGA fandom and hadn't heard of this convention, and I'm curious. Do you know if there are plans for any kind of save SGA rallying there?
I can't help feeling there should be picket lines outside any SGU events... :P

Well, this isn't really any kind of SGU event. Only SGA actors, with no writers and producers. So we would be rallying to the converted.

A couple months ago, I was hoping someone might organize this weekend to do a rally outside NBC studios. The problem with that is on the weekend there won't be anyone there, and on Friday most of us will just be getting into town. So I didn't push it.

This convention is very expensive for most of the attendees ($370), so that's our support for the SGA actors right there. You won't see me paying any money at future cons to see any SGU actors or sets in Vancouver. And I will be letting the Creation con organizers know that next weekend.

Ah. I see. It's more of a fan-organised con, than officially by the "franchise"? (hate that word)
I glanced at the website, saw a SGU banner and thought there might be people promoting it. If so, maybe it would have been noticed if no-one showed up :P

Ouch, that's expensive, yes.
Money... I doubt the people in charge worry about rallies or emails and lemons in the mail as long as they think SGU will be more profitable. Fan actions would have to be more... scary and effectively threaten profit to work. Though who knows how to do that?
