To truly grasp the significance of this series, you need to revisit a post from February: The Brilliance of Tommy Wiseau. At that screening of The Room, it was announced that Tommy Wiseau would be IN PERSON at another screening in April.
Naturally, I bought tickets immediately.
Now that we're all up to speed, this long-anticipated event occurred Friday. I knew I would be the lucky attendee of a sold-out Q&A session with Mr. Wiseau, but I had no idea that I would spend over half an hour roughly four feet away from the genius himself! Peter Flynn, a dude I know from work (the perks of working in Visual and Media Arts!), was shooting at the screening for a documentary he is doing on art house cinema. He had an interview scheduled with Mr. Wiseau and needed someone to monitor the audio (!!!!!!!). I recorded the entire Q&A session and the entire interview, so I've got some seriously good stuff to share with you all.
The whole thing was so amazing (and so many amazing things are happening in my life!), that I decided to create a whole series around it (titular credit goes to my pal Dean Egan for the apt "Wiseawesome!"). From now until the Sunday before my wedding day (talk about burying the lead!), I will share 60 titillating seconds of sound from the exceptionally (charmingly!) crazy mind of Tommy Wiseau. Let's think of it as my extended bachelorette party.
Today's minute? The audio from the infamous (!) coffee shop scene, featuring all the glory of Coolidge crowd participation.
