My Date With Looper

Just yesterday I had the amazing honor of getting to ask Looper writer/director Rian Johnson a question on a live cam show! Spreecast be it's name! I'd never been on there before but it's pretty fantastic. Chase Whale was the awesome guy running the whole show. He asked some great questions, asked some of the fans questions for them, and a lucky few of us got to ask Rian ourselves (look at me on a first name basis with him) via webcam.

I luckily had a webcam which, no joke, I've NEVER used. I bought it once for something, nothing sex related, and then decided not to do it. I honestly can't remember which just makes me think, I thought of a "funny" idea involving having a webcam, bought one spur of the moment, woke up the next morning and realized it wasn't a good idea at all, and never returned the webcam since I'm so lazy. But, it was lucky I still had it, so I got to ask Rian myself! I'll post the link to most of the show at the end of this post if you want to watch it. It was literally Rian Johnson's birthday, he did the show anyway, and went longer because he had the time and he's so cool like that! I didn't post the whole thing, there's around 20-25 minutes of content beforehand, but the clip is starting with my question and then all the other questions afterwards.

I'm not trying to be cocky or anything and start it off with myself...I was trying to be mega-cocky and make a clip that was only my question but somehow messed it up and made it run to the very end. Oh well, it's still an hour of amazingness and beauty and cinematic...well let's not get ahead of ourselves, it was webcam quality. The best webcam quality you could have though! But in all honesty Rian had some amazing answers to, what I think were, some pretty damn good questions. And him and Chase were just pretty funny and apparently kind of have a thing for each other, which was fun to watch play out on camera! It was like watching the B story (the love story, you guys) as all the very important stuff was happening simultaneously.

Here's a screenshot I took of a pivotal moment in the show, where Rian is answering my question and at the same time, in the chat window to the right, my hair is being complimented by people I don't even know. Something I experience every day.

Shout out to Alistair! Thanks bud. But yeah, Rian was really great and super nice to everyone, very informative. I was pretty damn honored to be able to ask him a question, get his detailed answer and be on the screen with him at the same time in which I had plenty moments to print screen and get the best images from to make millions with! I haven't decided how that will work yet but I'm sure it will somehow! And Chase did a fantastic job as the moderator and I really couldn't ask for a better first Spreecast! So, without further adieu (Really? It took me 4 times to get it right and THAT'S the correct spelling?) here is the clip! I hope you all enjoy as much as I did!

Questions For Mr. Looper

  1. That is so cool! You have every right to be super mega cocky! And your hair is bad ass.
