An outing with the parents. I ended up sitting next to an elderly gent who quite possibly went to the original concert on Aug. 23, 1964. He seemed tickled pink that someone of my age was into The Beatles.
But it wasn’t just me. Practically everyone in the sold out venue sang along to Yesterday and the like, and the view of everyone’s flashlight apps (the new lighter, apparently?) proudly up and waving was nothing short of breathtaking.
Some cool LA trivia, Bob Eubanks (local celebrity and guest host) apparently took out a mortgage on his house to bring The Beatles to the Bowl.
A talk put on by the Writer’s Guild Foundation specifically motivated by the fact that there are very few women writers in sci-fi features. Perlman is the only accredited female screenwriter for a Marvel movie. I’ve paraphrased/summarized some questions and answers I found interesting under the cut, but beware of some spoilers for GOTG if you haven’t seen it yet.
I didn’t really appreciate until now that Sailor Moon isn’t just a cool anime, but it’s practically a feminist icon and in a lot of ways defined a whole generation of girls and girl power. You can see it was out in full force.
