Because YOU marginally demanded it: we will be doing another FSM "mixer"/"get-together"/"party" probably the weekend of May 30-31 (the weekend after Memorial Day). Several of you kindly attended when we did one last spring in Hollywood at one of our mixing facilities, Private Island Trax, and it was a lot of fun for all involved.

As of now we don't have an exact date, time, place or "program" but I wanted to post about this particular weekend in case some of you (Ron Burbella!) want to make travel plans or stay-in-L.A. plans. We'll do something fun, informal but easy to attend along the lines of last year. And this year we will try to have some "special" guests although to quote the immortal Ernie Anderson, in a blooper tape of his screwing up voiceovers for America's Funniest Home Videos: "F@%# it—there is no special guest. He's just a guest."

OK? Hope to see folks that weekend and by all means post your feedback and suggestions for our social event in the comments thread below. Thanks!

WHOA! I got a mention! Hmmm. Double hmmm. It's...a definite maybe. It's far enough in the future to comtemplate. But it takes a lot of finagling profession-wise to set this stuff up. The spouse would be bored to hell, so for me it's a solo FSM event if at all. My son and his wife live in Los Angeles, so it is always worth the trip to see them.

I may have some absolutely unavoidable professional issues to take care of that weekend. Otherwise, I'm be taking a look into the preliminary arrangements.

Lukas, will you be a character witness at my divorce trial? (Usual answer: "Sure, I'll testify that you're a real character all right!")

Either way, thank you for thinking of and mentioning me of all people!

I was just looking at the calendar:
Memorial Day is Observed May 25th.
So Memorial Day weekend is May 22-23-24-25.
Does that change things?

Sweet! :)

Well it certainly ruins things for me. I was planning on having a BIG party that weekend, I assumed Memorial Day was around the 31st like it usually is. :-/

Crap! :(

Ron, make sure that you have Oct.24th on your calendar for a special GSPO concert. stu@stuwho.com

Hey, Mr. K! How about bringing along some of those leftover cd booklets that you said are cluttering up the shelves?

Didn't you say you were going to give them away as premiums or something? They would make cool party favors.

Hey Ron, I just came across some pop-up offering 2 free JetBlue roundtrippers. Don't know the hitch but hey, why shouldn't 2 Jersey boys crash this west coast shindig! And we can haul Preston over, too!!

I think Craig has all of those over at Screen Archives.


BTW I am so up for this I am starting to salivate.

Also I talked to Preston Neal Jones recently and if all goes on schedule he might be up for this too!

Actually I am really surprised there aren't more people lining up for this. The last one was incredible, a peek behind the inner sanctum, showing how all these amazing releases get done, plus meeting so many others we've heard about but never seen in person.

Is it because it is a couple months away?

Fantastic! I'll be there. Last years was great.
