Sundance:  Bong Joon Ho is an UPTOWN GIRL.
Sure there was the Red State carnival and its tempest-in-a-teapot-outrage, and at about the same time there was a rather odd bit of film-goer outrage at Lucky McKee's midnight premiere of The Woman (which makes me excited for that one), but, really, the cool kids were at the Magnet/Alamo Karaoke Party where The Host, Mother, Memories of Murder director Bong Joon Ho belted out Billy Joel's Uptown Girl with a bottle of Stella.  Now that is Jury-Duty.  You can bless or blame Tim League for infecting the world-wide film festival circuit with the Karaoke bug, but either way:  Video below.

One of these days I need to make it to one of these damned film festivals where all kinds of awesome breaks loose! SXSW is out this year, but Fantastic Fest is a longshot possibility.

Ah, the horrible reality of camera phones and life in the internet age. No longer can people have embarrassing drunken fun that will be forgotten the next day... Was that Swarez at 1:27?

As a friend has described Fantastic apparently is the "SPRING BREAK" of film festivals, so obvious if you go to fest for the Shenanigans that is the festival to go to! I've yet to make it down, as it follows so closely on the heels of TIFF, but the above even is organized by most of the same folks (I think), hence the Glowing Viking helmets and maybe/maybe-not irony of Billy Joel.
