SFF Day 9

Friday I worked my tail off at my regular job for a few hours in the morning, then booked it up to Park City to do my volunteer shift from noon to 5pm. It was un-eventful (as usual). I did get a good pizza from the resorts food court area. GIANT piece and it tastes pretty good. Almost as good as the Pie, but the pie adds some other kind of cheese or spice to their pizzas that I have not been able to figure out.

Oh yeah, just a reminder everyone, I want one of those pizza ovens for my BD.

Anyway, I jetted back down to SLC to meet Alene, Jeff, and Mandi. We ate at Squatters Brew Pub (the BEST burger in the world), which was across the street from the theater that Alene was working at and had the film we were going to see.

We saw "Chapter 27", which was a film about the dude Mark David Chapman who shot John Lennon. Jared Leto played him and it was impressive not only in acting, but the fact that Jared, a normally somewhat skinny dude, put on 65 lbs to play this role and has some health problems now (gout) because of it. That's crazy.

Anyway, the movie was almost a Docu-Drama in that it pretty much followed what happened for the 3 days that Mark Chapman was in NYC and what was going through his head. He had read and been reading the book "catcher in the rye", which I have never read, but now I need to. Alene read it when she was 15 and loved it. Mark Chapman thought he was the main character in the book, so he did a lot of things the main character did and even tried to talk like him. However, he took it even further and went to the extreme to "eliminate" John Lennon because he felt he was a fake and a phonie. I thought it was very well-done. I think Leto did a great job. He was a producer as well and I actually like it sometimes when Actors produce because they put even more into the project and likely give the best performance they can.

  2. Awesome. I love it when someone doesn't have the ballz to at least leave their name when they want to call me a moron.
