Hey folks, Harry here... with a really very cool event that I get to be a part of here in Austin on April 16th of this year! Right smack dab in the midst of all the lunacy with SXSW, TCM contacted to see if I wanted to joining TCM's host Ben Mankiewicz and the stunningly awe-inspiringly killer star of RIO BRAVO, the female embodiment of viagra, Angie Dickinson! The answer was a glee filled, "FUCK YEAH!" - and so now, I get to share this awesome news with the rest of ya! All the details about how to get in are below - so... study and follow closely and I'll see ya there!!! I am really and truly giddy about this. I've got a little less of a month of rehab between now and then, I'll buy new clothes for this event, wonder what size I can get down to. Must be in better shape to meet someone as awesome as this! I biked 9.3 miles today, tomorrow will be 10!
