25th Anniversary of the Video Hall of Fame

Some of you have been wondering what I've been doing this weekend with the job that came up so suddenly...

Well, it was the Video Hall of Fame Awards and I was called in to write the show. I received the call on Friday, worked Friday night and Saturday (all day), sent my first pass out Sunday noon. Rewrote like hell all day Sunday on through to showtime tonight at 8:45 pm.

The dinner was excellent. The drinks even better (all free, baby!), and I walked away tonight with some great contacts, some ideas and of course, free DVDs (Fantastic Four!!!!!)

I'll go into more detail tomorrow after I sleep. There were some things said tonight that are really important in that they offer insight into how the home entertainment segment of the industry sees itself, and how important the next five years will be to writers and producers. All this and some facts and figures.

Sadly, I heard that the Kirby documentary is being held back for the "Special Edition" of FF due out in March.

Denis - I just had my first cup of coffee. Give me a break and quick busting my boyz...

#1 - yeah, this disc doesn't have a Kirby tribute, but it does look good, and I am going to drool over Jessica's "Albas" today.

Now let me wake up. Put out a few fires, and then I'll post, okay?
