Got a decent five hours of sleep last night and woke up at six in the morning and got to the Yarrow theater for the first film of the day. Mark and I went and got some energy drinks and Mark decided to take a quick nap before the first film. So I was able to get a funny little video of the boss in his slumber. Then we sat down with Jen of Rotten Tomatoes for some lunch and we got a fun little video of it, which should be up on the site very soon. Well today was another four-movie day and it wasn’t bad. I think I am slowly getting acclimated to the entire Sundance situation and I enjoy it so far. Samuel L. Jackson was pretty awesome in the indie boxing movie, “”Resurrecting the Champ”.

Now I have to share with you guys a funny little story. Mark, Jamie, and myself got on the shuttle after the long day at the next stop and Jewish Reggae artist, Matisyahu got on the shuttle and stood right by us. Let me know if you guys aren’t familiar with this musician and I will send you links because his music is amazing. Well anyways I was quite nervous to say anything to him but then he started asking the shuttle driver directions. Mark then started giving Matisyahu directions and it was pretty cool. I thought wow this guy is a pro when talking to celebrities. When we got off the shuttle, I asked Mark if he knew whom that was. He was like no and I guess he has never heard of Matisyahu but the song “”King With Out a Crown” has been on the airways since last year so I am sure he has heard at least that song.

Well guys hope you haven’t gotten sick of my ramblings yet because I am starting to get the hang of this whole thing. I think that my first blog for the site was absolute crap so I hope the rest of these aren’t as atrocious as the first one. Well have a good one everyone and I will be bogging’ again soon.

    Say, what was Matisyahu doing at Sundance? Does he have a film in the competition?
