Re: Athens, GA VISCERA Event Hosted by Shannon Lark

you realize you're gonna have to give me the run-down on 'I Spit On Eli Roth'.  lol

Re: Athens, GA VISCERA Event Hosted by Shannon Lark

HAHA No worries.

Everyone wish us luck tonight.  Since Shannon had to cancel and I'm co-hosting the show now, lord only knows what could happen.  lol

Already today, I got stranded at the university after our radio interview and had to hoof it all over campus in the rain.

And of course it's still raining full force so my hair looks like a tribute to Piper Laurie (guess it's fitting LOL)

I've got about two hours until the first show.  We'll see what shakes loose.  big_smile

Re: Athens, GA VISCERA Event Hosted by Shannon Lark

maven all wet and in dissaray.  sorry, but that sounds like good stuff. LOL

Once again, darlin - I wish you and the event all the best - go make me proud!
Keep a seat in your lap open for me in spirit LOL

Re: Athens, GA VISCERA Event Hosted by Shannon Lark

Okay, guys.  The event was AMAZING!  Thanks so much for the support.  I am also pleased to report that we did have one HM person drive up from Atlanta for the show.  Very cool, Droog.  Thank you!

Shannon couldn't make it because she got snowed in so I ended up hosting the event pretty much at the last minute.  It so was fun, though.  The screaming contest was hilarious.

AND we were able to raise a decent chunk of change for Project Safe.  big_smile

Incidentally, if you get a chance to check out the VISCERA DVD (you should) watch MOCKINGBIRD.  That is one of the freakiest and most effective shorts I have ever seen.
