For the non-Firefly fans who know not what I mean, know now: I have a ticket to tonight's late-night charity screening of the movie Serenity. People are encouraged to get drunk and mouthy, and to yell at the screen, at the "Special Hell" screening.* Should be a hell of a thing. This is the sort of thing Portlanders will do for charity.
I went out and bought my ticket last night, bussing up to Cinema 21 where the shows will be and purchasing so that I'd already have a physical ticket. Lollygagged through NW and downtown Portland afterward.
And I finally (finally) ran into production of the show Leverage, which was shooting on SW Broadway a couple of blocks from Pioneer Courthouse Square. I'd been following Wil Wheaton's set reports from his week on the show, and have been enjoying the simple fact that this fun show was using Portland as its location this season, but I felt I needed to see it happening to be sure it, well, was happening. Still haven't ran into Gina Bellman, though.
Anyway. Special Hell. I think I'm going to enjoy being there, but I probably should take a nap before then.
