Of course, when I’m not being hounded by fans I’m drop-kicking my way into super-secret surprise screenings of District 9. That’s right. I’m tired of sneaking into things. Unless those things are private parties hosted by Peter Jackson after the super-secret surprise screening of District 9. The parts I remember of that were awesome.
