Best Weekend ever...EVER! at 9:51 AM

Last night i Went to the Ogden Tweetup at Rooster. Tweetups are in person meet and greets with your local twitter users. You get to meet the people behind the avatars and network with people you may not have socialized with otherwise. It was pretty fun and there is talk of another one soon.
Until then check out these rad folks who came to this tweetup-Jeffrey Dutch Dutcher Jr , Weber morgan heath , Benjoe markland, Mike Brice and Jason Dutcher
And check out their rad blogs too-

Theatre and love have their ups and downs but everyone lives happily ever after in the end. This "New Gershwin Musical Comedy" won the 1992 Tony Award for Best Musical.

Sundance Films-
Like Crazy is a film from and about the heart. Jacob, an American, and Anna, who is British, meet at college in Los Angeles and fall madly in love. It’s the purest kind of romance—they’re each other’s first significant attachment. When Anna returns to London, the couple is forced into a long-distance relationship. Their perfect love is tested, and youth, trust, and geography become their biggest enemies
I melt with you On the surface, they look like other men going through life: they have careers and families and responsibilities. But as with many people, there is more to them than meets the eye. As the weekend progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess. Fueled by sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, their bacchanalian reunion drives them to an unexpected place where they are forced to confront themselves and the choices they’ve made.
