I Go To Premieres and Shit

Here is a still from Bubblerama, MY (first) MOVIE:



The premiere at the MCA last night was super glam and my friend Liz told me I looked so Hollywood which made me very happy since it was exactly what I was going for. I figure, you know, when in Rome... no one needed to know my Hollywood outfit was a top from Forever 21 and a very last minute belt that was actually a necklace and a pin, which looked very cute until I attempted, um, moving, at which time it kept falling off.

But enough about my outfit.

The movie is awesome. It's based on this crazy story I wrote, called Stealer. There are some amazing (and surreal) images in the film but I don't want to give too much away since I think it will be more widely available for your viewing pleasure soon (stay tuned). There were twizzlers in the theater and the party was fancy and fun and they served yummy small food like tiny burgers, tiny milk and cookies, and tiny soup with tiny grilled cheese. And there were gift bags! With bubbles and cookies and champagne - we donated ours to a very, very excited homeless lady on the street. (This could be a whole separate post...) Check out the website again, on the link above - there's some cool stuff there, including an interview with the adorable and sweet actors (watch closely for a clip from the film in there featuring ME) who were so so so great and perfect, and you can also send an email message to a friend from 'the doll' (although the voice is computer-generated and not the helium-goodness in the film).

Yep, this is how we roll. I'm just glad this is only how we roll sometimes, because if we rolled like this every day I would roll through life dazed and spaced out from all the excitement, which keeps me awake at night. I would be willing to roll like this slightly more often though, if it keeps paying the rent.

How do you like the movie ?-- I'm so bummed I couldn't make the screening.... did Ben do the ben dance? : )

Betsy said...

Thanks, Nick, it was fun!
Tony, no Ben dance this time. The movie was pretty great! I think they did a really good job - in some ways it's very different than what I wrote - they actually added some cool stuff - but in other ways it's still VERY Craneish.

Elizabetsy, you rock. I'm so happy for you. And so sad that I didn't get tiny milk and cookies. Or get to see the film's premier. Or get to eat tiny burgers. But not in that order. I really like tiny burgers. Do you always send a Bulletin when you update your blog? Today was the first I've seen, and then I felt bad that I'd missed so many posts... - James

Hi James, no, I don't usually post bulletins on myspace about my blog over here - I just wanted to get the word out about the site and didn't want to repeat the whole thing in two places. Anyway, you're sweet, thanks!
Tiny burgers are very cute.

Betsy, I am so happy for you. It must be surreal to see something you've written up on screen. I will definitely try to check out the movie if I can get the chance. I will also buy it if it becomes available to purchase in a buyable format! Like tiny hamburgers. Yes.
