It fits the movie very well. Anyone that has seen it should love it. My main concern is that I'm downsizing and might not be able to fit what I have, let alone add more. :hanging:
When stressed about getting a drop, just remember: it will decay into the same organic matter as inevitably as your rotting corpse no matter how much museum glass you put in front of it.

Don't think I could hang a poster of Asian kids killing each other, but that's pretty much what the movie's about. For those making the trip, enjoy the show!

The percentage of Mondo prints that I actually frame to what I own is miniscule. I'm an idiot, I know.

I think it's an awesome poster, but it (a) is O'Malley's take on the painting at the end of the movie basically, and (b) is a movie I watched last week. So in conclusion, I don't think I'll be changing my weekend plans to go to Austin for it. Bummed I'll be missing this event, but kind of relieved I don't have to explain to the wife why our weekend plans were changing for a movie/poster :)

I think he means he isnt changing his plans to go to Austin, no matter what is going on in Houston.

I know...I was planning on making a trip to Austin that weekend...had been thinking about either turning my austin trip into a one day trip, or hitching a ride FROM austin to houston on saturday. Bummed to miss the event, but moreso to see people, but I know there will be a chance for that soon enough.

I would make the drive if anyone covers both tickets and shipping cost. Other than that though, I'm cool with sitting this one out. :pint:

*Love that Bryan is now doing posters!

A comma makes all the difference...

I think it was more my rather inappropriate use of a preposition to end a sentence.
