OMG! Calculating distance to Austin, as we speak.  
Linklater’s new film to screen at SXSW
By Chris Garcia | Saturday, March 14, 2009, 01:45 PM

The “Super Special Screening,” we hear, slated for 11 a.m. Monday at the Paramount is Richard Linklater’s “Me and Orson Welles,” starring Zac Efron and Claire Danes. Look out for the official announcement.

The movie did well at the annual Toronto film fest last year and received upbeat reviews. It’s still looking for a distributor.

I saw. LOL. Poor Zaccy. Some girl blogged about him being a snob because he wouldn't sign autographs for all the people swarming him. I think people lose all sense of reality about celebrities being real people or even just about reality itself.

I added the pic to the post where I mentioned the sightings too.

Maybe it's misplaced 'entitlement' some feel owed, or a conceived notion that celebrities are puppets on strings that are "on" all the time, but that sort of 'they didn't sign= they are a *insert noun of choice here*' attitude merits nothing less than a swift STFD down from me.

I think it's tough. Because certainly for a lot of people the one time they see Zac in person is likely to be the only time they ever see him in person. So you want to get as much out of it as you can.

And I think for a lot of people, they've got it so ingrained that it is about the picture or the autograph. But I think Zac's got the right idea. It is about the moment, not the physical things you take with you from that moment. That's why he focuses on shaking people's hands and saying hello.

I mean seriously, I'd take shaking his hand and making eye contact and talking to him over him just vacantly signing stuff for a lot of people. We invest so much in these physical things that don't really hold any meaning. It is kind of sad.

It's all about perspective though. Maturity (not just age) has a lot to do with how an encounter with any favorite entertainer would ensue.

The importance is placed in the physical- not the moment, like you said. He's a REAL, tangible, person- and that gets so lost and skewed by the facade of Hollywood and what celeb culture projects onto these entertainers.
