The Night I Saw My Son on the Big Screen!

OK so three vampires walk into a bar...........
 "What'll it be gentlemen, Blood or Blood Light?"

I had so much fun last night at the premiere of Rocker Son's movie! (He is the cowboy vampire with the long dark hair in the clip) The Varsity Theatre in Davis was full of semi-rowdy fans, family members and many other ticket holders, all there to see this short film produced by good friends. A few of Rocker Son's lifelong friends are headed into film careers and he got to be part of this first venture with them. 



The movie clip below will give you an idea of the campy, western theme combined with ghoulish vampires, witches and what-not.

The excitement and energy in the theatre as people waited outside and then crowded inside was a blast. I love the hope, humor and over-all optimism in the 20's and 30's age. No, I do not get all the jokes or recognize half the characters they dressed up as, but I really love being in their midst. The big open smiles, encouragement and silliness with one another creates a wonderful atmosphere of acceptance.




Rocker Son was the BEST actor in the whole movie. This totally IMPARTIAL movie reviewer says it like it is folks! He is a talented guy who really can do anything he sets his mind and heart on accomplishing. I love that about him. 



Hubs and I discussed the weirdness of being the older people as we walked around the little college town, (because we were over an hour early! Old-people-alert!!) Our self-perception has not caught up with the reality and it still feels so odd to be the older generation to so many. That may be why we so love to be among people in their 20's & 30's. We can pretend we fit and laugh even if we do not get the joke and they accept us as we are. And that helps ME to accept myself as I are too! :) 





Pin It 
I am looking forward to seeing some of the names that scrolled on the credits once again in future BIG movies and I will try not to picture them as the little gangly boys that came by the house with Rocker Son when they were at the beginning of their long friendship.

You did a great job guys, very proud of you!

    1. Thanks Kat, it was a cool thing to see. He is not planning on pursuing acting as a job, but his friends are very serious about moving to LA to further their film careers in writing, directing and producing.

  2. oh I smiled the entire time I was reading this! I've been waiting for you to write about your experience. I'm so glad you had fun, and the clip was great! It is kind of a weird feeling being part of the "older generation."But I still have my Harley and tattoos, which means, I think, I'm kicking and screaming leaving the "younger generation."

  4. I love your smile...it shows how truly proud you are of your son...and he knows it...that is a gift. A gift to your son from you, his "prim and proper mother" :) and a gift from him back to you...the knowledge that you love him and he loves you...just the way you both are. No pretenses. Just real pure mother/son love. I am happy for all of you. Kind of like the way Jesus loves us...purely with no pretenses, just the way we are. yeah, I love your smile. It makes me smile too.
