Check it: here's a killer Sundance VIP party list app for the iPhone! seem pretty legit. I got a coupe responses to the RSVP's I sent out.


Posted // January 17,2011 at 12:30 If only someone as cool as Keith Stones would show up at Sundance sometime. Harvey Weinstein with a Blackberry is a poor substitute. Unfortunately, it's become a pop-culture caricature of itself, fomenting exactly the kind of corporate/commercial excess it was intended to work around. And I kid you not: The Trib ran a feature, front-page story over the week-end on what Sundance Fashions will be in vogue. Who gives a shit besides some worn-out fashion writer trying to pay for her lunch? Let's see, wear a fur jacket, because these hedonists don't care about animal rights. It's cool!C'mon! It's rich celebrities 24/7! I'm going to wear some tights, and some Luggs or Uggs or whatever the hell those ugly suade moon boots are called, a really dorky-looking Bolivian sheepherder cap with too-long chin-ties dangling down and a sweater-dress underneath that looks like I got it from Deseret Industries in the 50's, but actually paid more than I make in a week for it at a boutique on 3300 South.Oh, and lots of really tacky-looking, cheap costume jewelry. And later at night, while driving back down to Salt Lake City, I realize that I forgot to attend any screenings or panel discussions, that I didn't see anyone I recognized, or at least I think I recognized under layers of coats,face-masks, hats and glasses and no one in the band playing at Harry-O's noticed me even though I danced drunk next to the stage all night.
