I just posted a story on CGEF where I need your help.

We will be able to get 10 fans in pairs of two into the premier of Bender's Big Score in LA on Nov. 15th. It starts at 6:30pm (reception). The movie will be shown at 7:30. There will be some after party. This thing is going to be mostly for Futurama crew/cast (including Cohen and Groening) and press.

My aim is it to find 5

I only got roughly one day for this.

So, if you live in LA, check CGEF and enter. Mention your PEEL account if you do.

If you don't live in LA but know someone who does, please make them aware of this unique chance on CGEF!

If you don't live in LA and don't know anyone who does, help me spread the word by using the links in the article to digg that story, put it on del.icio.us, reddit or stumpleupon (if you have accounts on any of those).

One thing: I'm not sure on the age restriction yet. I'll assume 21+, but it might be lower. Will update on CGEF as soon as I know more.

Well, you don't need to live in LA really. Just be able to be at the cinema at the given time.

If it didn't take me x days worth of driving just to get to LA, and I didn't have classes this week, I'd love to take up this offer.  Love love LOVE to.   frown

Good luck to everyone who's entering, though, and many thanks to mArc for hosting this; and DXC, who I assume was the initiator of this "contest."

I hope most of the lucky fans are Peelers and can report on the evening to the rest of us. Good luck...

DAMN IT!!! If only I was 4 year older, lived 3000 miles West or had the money I'd enter.    cry Also FUCK scool!  would make that drive or even get my parents to get me money to get there for this I do care how many fucking pay check I'd have to give up. If only I hadn't moved out of the San Fransico Bay Area I could have made that drive. Then it would have only have been 400 miles instead of 3000 miles. Damn parents.

This is the worst kind of descrimiation... the kind against me. If I could afford plane tickets or the gas (and driving experience) to drive cross country believe me I would enter.

This is definitely a great opportunity for any fan of Futurama. Thanks for the heads up, mArc.

For myself, however, I don't make the 21+ age requirement, so, alas, I can't enter this. However however, I'll check back in tomorrow to see if the age requirement is indeed lower than 21 years, although I'd expect that you'll already have 5 entrants who make the age requirement by then.

Sorry for the younglings, but the age limit didn't go down. Might be because of alcohol being offered at reception.
I'll go forward and read through the "applications" and email the winners.

I told Cohen about that underpants thing.

Anyway, this is going to be a small PEEL meet, but I couldn't justify to make it a PEEL exclusive thing. Sorry for those who entered but can't go now. Really wish I could've sent everyone (but for HJS :P )

Thus begins an adventure to get from San Fran to LA tomorrow and back in time for work on Friday.  I will be utilizing at least 5 types of transportation on said journey; this is gonna be sweet.

PEELers wwe_fk and Just Nibblin' have also won.  I wont say who's who though.  Congrats to them! Also, I'm bringing canned eggs along as my guest.  Fun times indeed.

Wow!  I get to meet JBERGES!  And maybe get his autograph!

Oh yeah, and see the movie too...

Any pics in particular y'all want, let us know.

DXC wanted loud, screaming fans.  I choose to read that as obsessed, overeducated fans.   wink

And I don't own a single piece of Futurama clothing.  I feel bad and I should.

Wow. This is one of the 800 times a day that I am kicking myself for not moving out to Cali with JBERGES.   frown It's okay, canned eggs and JBERGES are as good a couple as any.  big grin

What an amazing opportunity for everyone who won. Congratulations!

Don't worry, Kloudes, I'll be all pretty in your place. 

So me and Bergie are driving there, reducing the 5 types of transportation to a single aging Saturn coupe.  We should meet up with some of the LA locals beforehand, because we'll be there all afternoon.

Pix plees, mkay? Thanx!1!11!


But seriously, congrats to all those who won tickets. What a randomised honor! Make sure to get picture, to not mention somebody's kids by name, age, and size (we don't want us to be known as a bunch of stalkers!), and, most important of all, to plug PEEL whenever possible, especially that i_c_weiner fellow. Have a fantastic time!

yay for the winners! Be sure to tell any cast and crew you meet that there are a large number of PEELers that wish they could have been there to throw their various undergarments. I would happily have sacrificed a bra to the cause if i could have.

Awesome.  Just totally awesome.  And they say whining gets you nowhere...

I asked about the dress code.  No dress code per se, but no shorts or T-shirts.  Forgot to ask about naked...

And I do wish more people could go.  I know it's only due to a fluke of geography that I'm going.

Someone be sure and ask MG or DXC whether the last movie will be shippy. In fact, whether all the movies will be shippy. And not just that, 'shippy'. 'Xanfor shippy'. Say it just like that, 'Xanfor shippy'. They'll know what you mean...

Oh, and someone thank Katey for being at the Comic-Con.  big grin
