Anthony updated his blog. It includes new book signing dates, too! We on the east coast prove triumphant this time round!

Just to let everyone know, I handed the gigantic letter over to Anthony myself on Sunday. It ended up being 25 pages in total. He gave me many a thank you for it.

I have posted in my own journal about the rest of the day. Let me know if the link won't work, that way I can unlock it if need be.

Hello everyone. I come bearing a proposition. I should be going to go see Anthony Rapp on June 11th at the Civic Theater. (I'm saying should because I'm still waiting for the confirmation e-mail but don't see why I shouldn't get tickets.) While talking about this with moowithme1989 the other day I came up with a plan. I've wanted to give Anthony something since last time I saw him. What could be a better thing to give then the thanks from his many fans?

Your mission: Leave a brief message to Anthony in the comments.

I shall complie everyone's responses together in a letter and hand it over to him when I go to see him. Sound like a plan? I thought so.

Comment away!

To be nice I'll put them under a cut.

Guess what I did?!?!?

That's right children I met Anthony Rapp tonight.
But what makes it even better is that I have a "horror" story to go with it.
Over the weekend I had asked and convinced Russell to go and since on the Rider website it said students with IDs could bring a guest so he said he'd take me.
Ok score right?
Well we get there and it turns out their website lied and it was students only.
So we gave Russ our stuff and he'd said he'd go listen and stuff for us.
Colleen and I were slightly ticked so we headed for the car and on the way I called my mom.
I told her what happened and she suggested we go sit in the student center anyway and see what happens.
Maybe they'll let us in if there's room.
Fat chance at that happening.
So we sit on one of the couch's and just hang to wait for Russ to come out.
I was playing around with my cell phone and look up to see you guessed it...Anthony Rapp!!
I hit Colleen she looked up and we just watched in silence as he crossed the room.
We were too in awe to even attempt to go say anything plus the fact he was on his way to go speak was against us.
So the two of us just hung out for about an hour and watched them set up the table and such.
I have never seen a more amusing sight then a bunch of college girls running to get in line to see Anthony.
I just laughed at the fact.
Then he came out and signed stuff.
Russ waited in line and when he got to the table called us over and explained to Anthony that we had "forgotten our IDs" and that we had sat there waiting the whole night.
We got such a sincere look from him and an "I'm so sorry."
He then proceded to sign my CD and book and Colleen's DVD.
I find it amusing when asked how hard was it find the book that the man looked dumbfounded when I said I got it from the local bookstore early.
It was great.
We took pictures thanked him and left.
I still cannot believe I got to meet him.
It's like surreal.
I love it!

I wish I could say what he talked about and whatnot but unfortunatly I couldn't hear anything through the closed door.
Russ did say he read the chapter about after Jonathan's death I believe.
Did a lengthy Q & A and answered Russ's question about his future plans.
And sang Season's of Love which I just discovered Russ had gotten a clip of on my camera for me.
So yay!
I must upload it.
Maybe.

Pictures from tonight.Collapse )

Is anyone else going to Anthony Rapp's signing at Rider tomorrow night?
I shall be there.
Look for the two in homemade RENT t-shirts acting all fangirly and stupid.
Mine will read - To days of inspiration - on the front with some La Vie Boheme quotes on the back.
Feel free to come say hi.

Without You Debuts at #27!!!

Feb. 23rd, 2006 | 05:05 pm
posted by: vicam in withoutyou_rent

Not sure if anyone has seen this yet but "Without You" debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list at #27!!! I think that's incredible and just wanted to share...way to go Anthony! I had high hopes that it would get on the list but was afraid not enough people (i.e. people outside the RENT community) would care to read it. So either there are a way more RENT fans who bought the book than anticipated, or he has reached out to others...which I think would be wonderful, especially given the subject matter of his book. I know I've recommended it to a few friends dealing with grief.

Anyways, here's a link that should show it: http://www.nytimes.com/glogin?URI=http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/26/books/bestseller/0226besthardnonfiction.html&OQ=_rQ3D2Q26orefQ3Dlogin&OP=7a75ceffQ2FTQ7EQ254TPi(oQ51iipKTK,,NT,KTKNT4iinoT4Q25opoQ25Q7BQ7BQ25Q51T,KKN4Q25opQ3DQ2BQ51PQ5BiQ5BZg(pgiQ5BHQ3DpQ23Q7B

But you have to sign up first.
