THE FESTIVAL OF SWORDS & SORCERY





Today,Saturday, January 17,I will dive into the ultimate movie challenge. 5 sword & sorcery films in a row. I did my fantasy squats and pull ups all week so I may be able to make it through this epic event. The programmer at The New Beverly cinema informed me that Albert Pyun one of my favorite directors will be in attendance. A short list of his accomplishments would include my favorite, RADIOACTIVE DREAMS, ALIEN FROM LA, CYBORG, the KICKBOXER series, NEMESIS, & The SWORD & SORCERER.
Dang... Better go pack some snacks and see if they allow pizza delivery.

Was a blast meeting you - our fantasy muscles aren't nerely as buff as yours, but we fun nonetheless!
Thanks again for the invite!
