This awesome double feature is happening today, about an hour south of where I live. It's two great movies, neither of which I have seen on the big screen before. I'm assuming it will be the dubbed version, causing some consternation to the "sub-elitist" crowd, but then, two of the actors didn't speak Japanese, so I guess it's OK for them to be dubbed, right? I'll give that a moment to sink in, just cause I'm feeling like a jerk at the moment.
Why's that? Well, I am not going to be there. Did I mention good pal August Ragone is going to be there to introduce them? I made a prior commitment before I knew this was happening, and one does have to be a man of one's word. It is for roller derby, so I do know I'll be having fun as well.
Still, it kind of rots that two things I love dearly are happening on the same day. I hope the showing is a huge success and that August can come out again for another one in the near future, one that doesn't collide with my other love.
And here I thought the words might get stuck in my throat.
