Just got back. Blimey, just as well I left just after the Shaun credits, I'd have been stuck! Well did anyone see my poncho? The big purple voluminous fluffy thing?
I get there a good 2 hours early to nab myself a good spot near the front when I notice the sign: NO CHAIRS ALLOWED. Balls! Well there's no way I'm sitting on the floor. It's fucking cobbles! My back, and arse for that matter, would be in agony. So I ask someone if it's alright to just put up my chair at the very back, out of peoples way and explained about my back. I only bagged myself a proper seat in the special area next to the projecter.
I was on a little platform above everyone and directly in front of the screen. I had the whole space to myself and even my own security guard. When a couple tried to sit across from me he had them leave as they didn't have permission like me!!
It was quite a giggle really. The twins were there and OH MY DAYS they love being stopped and doing fan photos. They did the zombie look every time. And it was their birthday so Simon sang happy birthday to them during the introduction and Edgar told us to cheer when they came on screen, which everybody duly did.
Of course there had to be a downside to this and that was being bloody miles away from Simon, Edgar, Peter and Kate when they come out to open the screening. Simon said 'Hands up those who love zombies!' and everyone, including me, stuck their arms up. Couldn't take any photos as I was too far away. And if truth be told I was feeling a bit lonesome up there by meself. Ah well.
Would loved to have stayed for Land Of The Dead but I would've missed my last train home. Couldn't even stay for Simon & Edgar's cameos. I think they started it a bit late for a double bill. Shaun should've been on at 8:30 really. But I guess that was heavily made up for by Osymyso's set, which was brilliant. I especially liked at the end clearly Simon doing his best ad voice 'Osymyso, ask about it at your local pharmacist' and Pete doing his Wogan with 'That Osymyso fella'.
And even though I could barely see Simon's facial features from where I was I could just see that he was wearing a t-shirt with Nick's face.
