rob says: Finally ran out of socks. Time to go home. It's been quite an amazing trip. I can't remember all the people we met. It was wonderful to finally hook up with Rebecca tonight. Her friends were great. I hope to see em back home. Saw Wet Hot American Summer this morning. Janeane Garofalo looked angry about being up that early. I am ready for home and loved ones, especially loved ones. I have to apologize to all of you for the spelling and the fact i ran out of interesting things to say a few nights ago. sigh. Oh well, It's been a blast! Thank you all for playing along at home.
tim says: Looks like this is our last entry for a while. We need some rest, and I too am out of socks. It's been quite a week. Many thanks to Don for having us along. Hopefully we'll be lucky enough to be back next year. In the meantime 'Rejected' has plenty of festivals left to play, so we hope to see you all there. Bye for now.

don says: fell down on the ice for the third time today. i am no longer fond of snow. rob just forced a drink into my hand. sort of just bummed around and relaxed today. spoke to some friendly kids here and there, fans of the films, wandered, said hello to bill again. just went to the latest sundance party. a small group of us found ourselves staring in wonder at a stunningly inebriated fat young lass who was perched atop a table, wobbling with her eyes closed. in slow motion, she sort of peeeeled off of the table and landed face first onto the linoleum. on our way out, her suffering friend was attempting to drag her across the snow drifts into their waiting car, and tim valiantly assisted while the rest of us stalled behind, fearing the inevitable torrents of vomit from her face. rob and tim are talking jive and are about to undertake the gin and tonics. tomorrow is the last day and the awards thingy. my fingernails are dirty. the wine is all gone.
tim says: Don is still wearing silly hats tonight, he can't shake it. He is feeling fat and sassy about his fancy depiction of our helping some nice drunken girls to their car. Rob has a splinter. Floyd Lloyd rocks! Happy happy to all our "I am a banana!" and "My anus is bleeding" friends on Main Street. You complete us. Kampai.

rob says: I didn't fall down today. yet. I saw a heap of movies today. blaaaaaaaaaaah. I watched half of View to a kill tonight. I'm determined to get more sleep tonight. There are great movies playing here but.....gooba dooba dang!!
don says: umm... i would not call tonight a sober evening. tonight is silly hat night. except for tim because he refuses to partake in the silly hats. saw three interesting films. snow almost all day. train of thought slowly dissolving. people in the room are defining 'prerequisite'. ok tim finally put on a silly hat. my knee is much better today, i am hobbling at a greater rate of speed. rob is about to pass out in the snow i swear to god. amy is taking photos that some may regret. here are some pictures.

Rob says: Gonna get up in four hours and try to find more tickets for movies. It started to snow on our way home. very nice. I have yet to see anyone from General Hospital. I'm not sure if an autograph will be enough to satisfy me. Tomorrow we shall find a cane for don. His new gangster walk is catchy. They are building a renaissance fair in the parking lot next to our condo. People in Utah know how to throw a party.
Tim says: Well, Ed will be happy with the shwag I send him from the Radiohead party. Lessons today in alternating ice and heat for a good blow to the knee (nimble Don). First real snowfall of the trip tonight. Half-hoping that we will wake up tomorrow morning under 12 feet of snow, but if not we go see some more movies. Love this life.
january 24, 2001
tim says: I met Danny Elfman tonight. That's all I have to say.
rob says: 'Waking life' was pretty incredible. I believe we scared Julie Delpy. I was willing to tackle Roger Ebert for a sum but no one would take me up on it. A long night of celebrity who could care less. We had a great time. Tommorrow is our last screening. No falling today. We're hoping to see 'memento' tommorrow.

rob says: they didn't explode. I was steping onto the bus and they sort of split. Nothing fell out but I was quite exposed for dinner. My eye balls hurt. it is very late. The screening went very well. I have discovered sushi. thank you tim. Not too much happened today, besides the screenings and the sushi and the pants spliting and the tornado. there was no tornado. I'm going to bed.
tim says: Yes, we got some sushi tonight so I am now feeling much more at home. Got more of a look around town today and there are an awful lot of people who really really want you to see their movie. Tomorrow we will actually go see one or two. Our 11:30pm screening tonight was worth staying up and braving the cold for. We are arguing about whether tonight's crowd was better than Saturday's. Very very tired now so nighty-night.
january 21, 2001
rob says: Met some important people today.
don says: saw a pretty good documentary tonight. i also slipped and fell down on an ice patch in a marvelously stupid fashion and hurt myself. from what i hear, everyone is talked about 'rejected' in very positive ways. many are quoting lines from the film around town, irritating the locals. which is great news. i don't think we are very eloquent tonight. rob and amy are playing cards. tim is leaning back in his chair staring quietly at the ceiling. alcohol. we will try and type prettier tomorrow. here are some pictures from today.
january 21, 2001
tim says: Loads of fun and madness today, topped off with a great screening where even the old bluehairs were beside themselves with laughter. And people in the lobby after the show even had very nice things to say about the sound. What more could you ask for? Uh, maybe temperatures in the double digits. ed says he saw tony hawk.
rob says: sweet jesus i can't feel my feet! A warm thank you to the nice people who connected us to billy's balloon. Gonna strap on the eye goggles now and gear us for another day of sunshine. Don's beard secretly scares me.....not so secretly. Thanks to Lance for driving us to the airport.
don says: i have had a lot of red wine. the screening went very well. there are many attractive people here. more soon...
