Hit up the Sundance scene both days this weekend. Saturday night's "Something for Nothing: The Art of Rap" completely RULED! Even though Ice-T didn't show, the director and producer were there afterward to answer questions which was awesome. Ice-T interviewed a bunch of different old school rappers about the craft and their perspectives and even their own inspirations as rappers. They had so many heavy hitters. I was *slightly* disappointed that the Beastie Boys weren't interviewed. I know it wasn't a cracker thing because they interviewed Eminem. Someone surmised that maybe they were too recent. I don't know...that was my only criticism though. The movie was up at Sundance itself which was a super cool venue. Fun to see a movie with the f-word every other sentence right smack in the middle of Utah County (home of BYU). I don't think too many Provo-ans were in attendance...
Sunday, the hubs joined in the viewing pleasure for "Predisposed" which was decent. I wanted to see this one because Tracy Morgan (Tracy Jordan from 30 Rock) was in it. Cool thing about this movie was that it was at the Tower (a mere 2 seconds from our house). Love getting to do Sundance without ever venturing into Park City.
So one of Garfield's favorite new things is popcorn...but because there is little control once I start consuming the popcorn, I have to make my own so I don't completely clog my arteries with the butter-salty movie kind...The Sundance movies always involve standing in line for at least 30 minutes, so I wised up for yesterday's movie and brought both in line popcorn (for the line standing segment of the afternoon and movie popcorn (consumed before the movie actually started...but done so while I was actually in my seat). Don't judge.

After the movie yesterday, I went to a Primal Utah team meeting and clothing try on. Bring on the 2XL kits, yeah! This awesome women's team is my former regional team here in the 801. There are a bunch of stellar chicks and I'm looking forward to being involved in a support role. And they are hiring! They are looking for cool, fun girls who like to ride and are interested in racing of any variety (mtb, tri's, road, cross--all disciplines welcome, all LEVELS welcome).

After the meeting, I went for 2nd dinner at the Woodies...Woody cheffed up an AMAZING feast...Even though J9 headed off to bed, Garfield stretched out in front of the fire while Woody and Steve polished off the last bottle of vino and talked smack. Fun times.
