I am so happy right now. Yeehaw!

I'm the happiest girl in the world!!!!!!! December can't get here soon enough.

Harry, it will be great to finally to meet you in person. Thanks for inviting us to your bday party!

I just picked a name from the list at random so you don't really have to fuck off - unless you want to of course. Maybe you can sit next to that Titley chap. Rump and Titley side by side. Could be fate.

Or is that a different Jeremy Bulloch?<br><br>Every year I check this list to see if forgotten people from my past have by coincidence decided to attend BNAT, but that never happens. One year I'd like to go myself.
Nov. 3, 2008, 2:27 a.m. CST
To everyone that got in, woo! Geek Xmas in Austin, as is right and good with all things in the universe. Cya there. The evensmallerdemon will be in tow.
Nov. 3, 2008, 2:50 a.m. CST
Make sure you hit one of several places in the area. Good eats.

Thanks, man. I am erect.
Nov. 3, 2008, 4:41 a.m. CST
Appreciate it, Harry. Now on to booking the flights. Any hotel tips from you locals?
Nov. 3, 2008, 5:40 a.m. CST
Now I'm going to go cry into my coffee. *heartbroken*
Nov. 3, 2008, 5:55 a.m. CST
I was wondering the same. I guess we don't need a hotel room for Saturday night but certainly Friday and Sunday.
Nov. 3, 2008, 6:02 a.m. CST
by Dman Den
If you look up Austin hostels on Google, you can get 1 for $15 a night. I am so happy to be going.
Nov. 3, 2008, 6:04 a.m. CST
A few days after applying I wound up with a role in our local theatre guild's production of "Oliver Twist" and this production is being dedicated to the memory of my old drama teacher who passed away last year. So I wound up kinda hoping that I *wouldn't* get the invite so that someone else who had never gone would be getting in instead, if that makes sense.<p>But for those of who you are going who have never had the pleasure before: you are in for a very wonderful time indeed! Last year's BNAT was the greatest film-going experience of my life and I can even say that it changed my outlook on some things profoundly. Just make sure that you've got PLENTY of room to carry back loot 'cuz Harry is quite the generous soul indeed! :-)
Nov. 3, 2008, 6:19 a.m. CST
I remember Harry mentioned a pre-party on Friday. Am I gonna have to arrive a day early, Harry? No problem, just need to book the transatlantic flights, you know. ;-)
Nov. 3, 2008, 6:31 a.m. CST
If not, how's the cab situation in Austin? Driving a Chevy Cobalt around a strange city after not sleeping for a couple days sounds like a recipe for disaster.
Nov. 3, 2008, 6:48 a.m. CST
by Bob Loblaw Law Blog
On the LiveJournal BNAT group, Harry mentioned a pre-BNAT gathering (last year, it was at the Texas Chili Parlor) and possibly a pre-BNAT screening of the new The Day the Earth Stood Still.<p>My advice: Get there as early on Friday as you can so you can get settled and be ready for any pre-BNAT stuff.

I don't think there's anything within really close walking distance, but there are some not terribly far away. <p>Austin has a bus system, if you don't wanna pay for a cab<p>Check this link out for the closest hotels on Google Maps near the Alamo Drafthouse South: http://tinyurl.com/6mmahg<p>And here's the Capital Metro Bus system Web site: http://www.capmetro.org/

Is this a real name? :D
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:19 a.m. CST
So I guess Brothers Bloom will be shown?
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:28 a.m. CST
Actually BROTHERS BLOOM played at Fantastic Fest, which disqualifies it for BNAT inclusion. No - Rian just wants to experience BNAT like many of you do.
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:41 a.m. CST
I'm thrilled to be going, and am looking forward to celebrating another of your birthdays!! How many submissions this year?
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:42 a.m. CST
Damn, better luck next year. Maybe I should have burned a real bush on my head...
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:44 a.m. CST
by Dman Den
If your name is on the list but you did not get the confirmation email, should I resend my email address. Admin should have mine on record anyway.
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:47 a.m. CST
I'm disappointed to not see my true name on the list again, but now the tortue of refreshing the page will be replaced with the torture of hoping beyond hope that I get an e-mail invite someday soon (I'll sit on the roof and listen through a glass if that seat's still available). Otherwise, whatever line there is to stand in, I will be there standing.<p>I thought it was kismet, too! I guessed it was going to be BNATX even! Harry, is this about the apostrophe?! ;-)
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:05 a.m. CST
Never got one. Name is on list though. Can I go ahead and book the flight?
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:13 a.m. CST
I got in and now I am off to thank those lucky stars of mine. And thanks to all you wonderful people who had the job of sifting through all the applications ... I can't imagine the hours that must have taken. I can't wait to share the best day of the year with all my fellow BNAT attendees. See you all soon. I'll have my bear slippers on, be sure to say hello.

Someone gave us an excellent tip at my first BNAT: The Austin Motel at 1220 S. Congress. It's an awesome 1938 motel, with each room decorated differently. It's also very cheap for an awesome stay. There's tons of great food options around, like El Sol, Zen, Home Slice Pizza, and Amy's Ice Cream!<br> <br> You could walk from there or take a cab (it's about a mile and a half by road). We'll probably drive, as we'll have rental cars anyway.<br> <br> Unless you have a rental car, you'll want to have a hotel room to store your clothes and stuff, as you need to fit everything you bring into the theater to fit under your seat. As well as that, the more stuff you bring with you, the longer it will take everyone to get through security.
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:29 a.m. CST

Will he be screening his version of The Oblong Box? I thought he died? Damn! I wish I had the same name as an awesome filmmaker, maybe I would have been picked!
Nov. 3, 2008, 9:29 a.m. CST
No. He is in fact dead. This is a different Michale Reeves. But I doubt it's a different Elijah Woods that's on the list. And I didn't see Eli's name on the list this year ... who'll bring us our pink lemonade?
Nov. 3, 2008, 9:50 a.m. CST
Elijah Wood and Mike Dougherty hook up?
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:03 a.m. CST
over- elijah, under- dougherty...
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:07 a.m. CST
he calls me by my first name now.
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:11 a.m. CST
This one could quite possibly be the best ever and I'm really happy to be a part of it!
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:15 a.m. CST
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:21 a.m. CST
Thanks for the tip! Just booked the Austin Motel. Only problem with it is you have to book Sat & Sun. But in the end, it is still cheaper than most other places at $80 a night.

And his brother too? Oh Fates, why have you chosen THIS year to wrong me? I want to go! Even if I have to sell my car to make ends meet! I knew it was going to suck having to pass this year, but now I feel like thowing up. Excuse me.
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:30 a.m. CST
So far, so good. I just hope I end up sitting behind Elijah Wood. Not because I'm some weird starfucker. I just want to make sure I can see the screen.
Nov. 3, 2008, 10:42 a.m. CST
I need proof...
Nov. 3, 2008, 11:01 a.m. CST
There are always a few at each event. Either in attendance or as a special guest. But BNAT folks are always very cool and laid back about it. We tend to keep or nerdgasams to a minimum.
Nov. 3, 2008, 11:18 a.m. CST
Very true. You could tell the FantasticFest/BNAT crowd this year, because we were the ones NOT mobbing Bill Murray. Damn Hipsters!
Nov. 3, 2008, 11:53 a.m. CST
by The Reluctant Austinite
Even though I'd think it was cool that Elijah Wood was in the house, just like everyone else, I'd just treat him like any other film fan in attendance. We generally geek out in private and amoungst ourselves. As Alamo film fans, we're not celebrity obessessed like the mainstream. There's respect and appreciation, but no clamoring for cell phone photos like the hipsters and Bill Murray situation you referenced. That cave party was indeed a strange scene.

Last year, my wife very casually said, "Hmmm... Laura Harris from 'Women's Murder Club' is here."<p>Knowing that she loved that show (may it rest in peace), I asked her if she said hi or anything. She said, "No. I'm not going to bug her... but, it's cool that she's here."<p>It seems Ms. Harris is on the list again this year, but like rodnunley said, BNAT folks are always cool and laid back.<p>I can't wait... see you guys in December!

by John Maddening
Like I was saying, it's good to have a hotel for Saturday night to store your stuff. Also, since you get out of the theater on Sunday at noonish, you'll want some place to fall asleep, and your hotel might not let you check in until 3 or 4.<br> <br> As for other people there that may be famous, they're there to watch movies, just like the rest of us. We treat them like everyone else.
Nov. 3, 2008, 12:20 p.m. CST
Do not give up hope. I applied many years in a row and did not get in. Finally, 3 years ago, I was accepted to BNAT 7. Howeverm, following that awesome experience, I was turned down for 8 and 9. I almost gave up hope this year, but in the end I love BNAT too much to not try my hardest to get in. never give up! Never surrender!
Nov. 3, 2008, 12:25 p.m. CST
the short actors...
Nov. 3, 2008, 12:39 p.m. CST
That depends. Are you attractive? Would you not recognize that Rob Thomas (or even the Cupid one) on sight? Would you be all giddy with lust for somebody you've mistaken for that Rob Thomas (or even the Cupid one)? If so, I have great news for you.<br><br>With that out of the way, condolences to everyone who didn't get in, and congratulations to everyone who did! See you in Austin!

Nov. 3, 2008, 4:31 p.m. CST
by The Reluctant Austinite
I've seen "Green Street Hooligans" and if there's one thing I wish Elijah Wood could do it would be to pass along his co-star's name to Kenneth Branagh and Marvel Entertainment. I know he's young, but he's a good actor who could pull off a potentially ridiculous and expensive trainwreck. We don't need a wrestler; no Triple H. With 6 months training to pump up, Charlie Hunnam would fill the boots and winged helmet of Thor.
Nov. 3, 2008, 4:45 p.m. CST
what the hell.
Nov. 3, 2008, 4:47 p.m. CST
really. I never apply to this. I'm Canadian.<p>Also, I love Lord of the Rings. Almost absolutely more than any of you. Elijah Wood being there is pretty sweet. Have fun guys.

Now I just need to find a way to get to Austin. Also, how much are tickets? Oh the info. As you can tell, I'm a first-time BNAT-er. I think I just wet my pants.
Nov. 3, 2008, 6:41 p.m. CST
How do I know that it is my name that I'm looking at? I have kind of a common name. Is there a way to get affirmation?

I hope that I wasn't disqualified because my picture involved a photoshop of the background piece... I assure you, the person you see in the picture is in fact me and took 2 hours to create including the bald cap and make-up. See for yourself... http://i152.photobucket.com/albums/s200/Beeslo/Beesley-BNATPhoto.jpg I really want to see the pictures of the people who made it...because damn...I worked really hard on this one...
Nov. 3, 2008, 7:54 p.m. CST
When you sent your app in...did you get a freakin' confirmation e-mail? Because if you did...I am going to throw this computer against the wall. Like i said above, I spent 2 hours on my picture and an additional 2 knocking out the app. I decided to sleep on it and submit it the next day only to find that my computer restarted for some reason. I even tried saving my text in MS Word but like an idiot, I included the web scrolls too which kept me from reading what I wrote. So from memory, I spent another hour rewriting the application before sending it in about 10pm on the deadline day (with 2 hours to go). I didn't receive a confirmation e-mail, but I was too scared to submit again to see if I'd get one because I felt I'd be pushing my luck and I'd get rejected by submitting twice. Seriously. This computer will be in pieces if I was supposed to receive a confirmation... Pray for my computer...

okay so I didnt enter the contest and thus didnt win, but still, ELIJAH WOOD! OMFG! I'm missing a chance to meet Huckleberry Finn! <p> Yeah, I'm not a big Rings fan. Or an Elijah fan, although he was also Kevin the Cannibal. But I think it would be funny to walk up to him and geek out "You're Huck Finn!!"

I've applied every year since I got into BNAT 5, and have never gotten in officially since. But last year, my friend and I went anyway and rushed for standby. We were the only 2 people there, and we waited over 10 hrs. But we got in on Sweeney Todd! I think standby seats are probably gonna be even more prevalent this year. Still debating whether or not I wanna try for it, I'm dying to go, I wish I could get to another BNAT so I could actually forge some actual friendships instead of feeling like a loser getting rejected every year, I think Harry doesn't like me or something.
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:33 p.m. CST
by Bob Loblaw Law Blog
Sorry, buddy... but the answer is yes. I got in... and I did receive an email after sending in my app.<p>It read exactly like this:<p> Subject: You have submited you info for BNAT 2008 [your name].<p> From: firstname.lastname@example.org<p> You have sumbmitted your information for BNAT 2008, we will post a list of everyone that is accepted once it is done.

You should have also seen a confirmation screen after you submitted your app, but prior to receiving the email.
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:41 p.m. CST
Well thanks Bob, don't worry I won't shoot the messenger but excuse me for a sec....MOTHERFUCKINGPIECEOFSHITTHISISFUCKINGBULLSHIT!!! HARRY! WHAT THE FUCK? WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR E-MAIL TOO FUCKING HARD? YOU JUST HAD TO HAVE IT COME THROUGH A FUCKIN' WEBSITE! BRILLIANT MOVE, YOU FUCKING FAT ASS! I HAVE BEEN PUT AT YOUR FUCKIN' MERCY FOR TOO FUCKIN' LONG. THIS IS IT. I AM NOT APPLYING FOR THIS BULLSHIT EVER AGAIN. YOU PUT ME THROUGH SO MUCH BULLSHIT EVERY YEAR ONLY TO TELL ME THAT YOU'VE DECIDED TO INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND THEIR FRIENDS AND CELEBRITIES AND THEIR FRIENDS. WHY DON'T YOU JUST FUCKIN' DIE YOU FAT ASS PRICK! THIS IS THE BIGGEST BULLSHIT THING EVER! I WAS WILLING TO ACCEPT A REJECTION BUT I WAS NOT WILLING TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT MY SUBMISSION NEVER MADE IT TO YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE BECAUSE OF THIS SHIT WEBSITE SYSTEM YOU GO GOING ON NOW. THANKS A FUCKING LOT. 2 HOURS OF PAINSTAKING MAKE-UP APPLICATION AND 3 HOURS OF APPLICATION WRITES AND RE-WRITES ONLY TO FIND OUT YOUR WEBSITE FUCKIN' BLOWS! THANKS A LOT, FATASS AND I HOPE YOU FUCKIN CHOKE ON YOUR BIRTHDAY CAKE. End rant. Thanks again, Bob. Congrats and have fun. 5 Years of rejection, farewell.
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:52 p.m. CST
I didn't get an e-mail, but I got the confirmation screen.
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:56 p.m. CST
I am sure Harry is very upset about your loss, and the guild is driving him to sob himself to sleep every night. Perhaps they will build a shrine to mourne your loss at BNAT. I'm going to state the obvious here, you are not the type of person BNAT wants and that is the reason that you didn't get in. See a psychologist, fix your massive personality flaws, and perhaps you have a chance next year!
Nov. 3, 2008, 8:56 p.m. CST
I didn't get the confirmation email after posting my app. Dammnit. Now I'm gonna be beating myself up over not submitting again just to be sure. Ugh! So who wants to meet up in Austin and tackle that standby line?? :D
Nov. 3, 2008, 9:07 p.m. CST
Understand when I say that I was expecting rejection when I begin to read the list. Its become somewhat of a tradition. And every year when I am said rejected, I simply say. Oh well. Hopefully I can get in via stand-by and if not, always next year. And that was going to be my same attitude this year. In fact, when I read the list and wasn't surprised my name wasn't on it...I shrugged my shoulders. Sure, I spent a lot of time on my app and pic but at least I gave it my best shot...and hey, there's a new stand-by system for Austinites this year, well thats cool. Then I caught a glance at someone asking about a confirmation e-mail. Holy shit. I didn't receive one. So understand that my above tirade was not due to being rejected, but was because my hard made pic and app didn't even make it in because of the assine web system they decided to go with instead of the much more reliable e-mail system. Its simply too much. Rejection I could take but finding out I never had a chance because of a glitch? Bullshit. I even looked all over the website and never once did it say there would be a confirmation e-mail sent. But like I said, I was tempted to send again just in case, but decided not to in fear that I'd be rejected on the grounds that I double submitted. I've jumped through the hoops year after year and don't mind it even when they make it harder by setting the hoops on fire. But when they make me jump through a flaming hoop that ends up in a kiddie pool full of shit. I just have to throw my hands up and say, "Seriously. WTF?" And bunni, you can try not being a prick. Try placing yourself in my position and try to empathize with the situation. I suggest you try to fix your massive personality flaws but first I would suggest you take your head out from your ass.
Nov. 3, 2008, 9:11 p.m. CST
I will admit that my harsh words directed at Harry were in poor taste...but were unfortunately made within minutes of reading Joe's "good news". But whatever, I've vented. I'm still steamed, but feel better. Congrats to all that got in...and who knows, maybe I'll get lucky this year with the stand-by. If not....well...we'll see how I feel after a year. Cause at this point, I'm just tired of the hoop jumping now...
Nov. 3, 2008, 11:31 p.m. CST
make a joke about the gun barrel tasting funny until I read Beeslo's rants. Dude, it's a 24 film festival. I get more joy out of seeing my daughter's smile than 10 movies. Breath deep, look around, and realize it's not too big of a deal. "I've had bigger spots on my lip and I never stopped whistlin'" - Max Fry, my grandfather that passed away 2 DAYS AGO.
Nov. 4, 2008, 12:13 a.m. CST
Hey, everyone has their certain things to look forward to each year. For me, the BNAT film festival is an awesome concept that I obviously want deeply to be a part of due to my endless applying and rejection year after year. But I will repeat this one more time. I'm not upset I didn't get in. What upsets me is that the "new and improved" system didn't accept my app and pic that I sweated and toiled over for 5+ hours. Its the fact that my hard work was all for not... Also, I don't have children and until I do, I get my joy from other things, one of which is movies.
Nov. 4, 2008, 12:14 a.m. CST
Sorry about your grandfather. He sounded like a great guy. My grandfather is a lot like that.

Some people didn't get a confirmation email but their name is on the list. It's possible it went to your junk mail or something. If that's the case, you were indeed rejected. Or, he actually didn't get it and it was amazing and you really would have gotten in if it was submitted. Whichever makes you feel better.
Nov. 4, 2008, 8:18 a.m. CST
That thought crossed my mind, but the thing that sucks about that is that I'll never know. Well regardless, after a night's sleep I know I overreacted a lot at first. Like I said, that first post was made in the heat of the moment after Bob gave me the news. But now the next morning, I feel better. People be damned, but it feels good to vent. And it was nice to know that there were others who weren't sure like myself on the fate of their apps like IronGiant and Series7; and for their sake, I hope hippolyta is right and they still have a shot for that virtual stand-by line (if they are Austinites, of course). Having said that, I'm done with this thread now and moving on to other things...like the Election. So congrats again to those who got in and have fun. Oh, and goldenage...right back at ya, bud.
Nov. 4, 2008, 8:28 a.m. CST
I met you last year, and you were not a loser. You're a nice guy who had some nearly-poor luck. I didn't make it this year either, and a great many people whom I LOVE to see there are encouraging me to fly from Atlanta to be in stand by. So, If you do, I might. Also, there's the pre-post shennagins that folks go to. Maybe you would too?
Nov. 4, 2008, 8:35 a.m. CST
I am going to look for your card, (if you're Andy)... and call you today to discuss. If you're the other guy, I don't know how to reach ya.

Nov. 4, 2008, 11:01 a.m. CST
I don't think it's worth it.. Your odds are simply not good enough that you should buy a plane ticket for stand by.

An argument regarding Bryan Singer between Elijah Wood and Mike Dougherty. <p> <p> Elijah: Do you enjoy sucking him off? <p> Mike: Yes! <p> Elijah: You like his cock? <p> Mike: I love it! <p> Elijah: You like him coming in your face? <p> Mike: Yes! <p> Elijah: What does it taste like? <p> Mike: It tastes like you but sweeter! <p> Elijah: That's the spirit. Thank you. Thank you for your honesty. Now fuck off and die.<p>

But then again, I didn't apply.

No one but harry's personal friends should be able to attend two in a row or more than two every 3 years. It lets more people get a chance, instead of people getting in every year. This was the first year I tried. Since I didn't have time to do a "themed" picture was it just trashed without looking? Post some of the winners aps so I can see what they said to get in.

Check your email! I got your message. Let's go for standby! We're nuts, btw, nuts. Neither of us are Austinites.

and like zacdilone I didn't apply. I was so busy with Scare for a Cure that I missed the original BNAT post and didn't see the post until the 24 Hours post. Since I worked on my app last year for days and didn't get in, I would want to commit my time and energy to a proper application. Of course, being an Austinite and a mere passing acquaintance of Harry puts me in a "not likely to be accepted" category. No worries - I enjoy the pleasure of many great film experiences thanks to Harry and the AICN/FF crew year-round (and the lovely sweet Patricia), and am still sated from Fantastic Fest 2008. Have a great time, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARRY!

What I'm saying is that I shouldn't have to alphabetize the list myself. I can copy and paste, myself. But I shouldn't have to. Guess I didn't get my point across. Also, I don't have an Apple. Yes, I know, I'm scum.

Like many others, I also did not get in, so if any of you were hoping to see me there, you might, but it's doubtful. Help Me celebrate My Birthday by showing up at the Ritz for Terror Thursday 20 Nov 2008 to watch 1978's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. My birthday is 22 Nov, and Zack and the Alamo let me request a movie to help me celebrate. I wonder what film fans who don't use computers do for fun these days? Peace! David "Moses Hussein" Strong
