Spiders! And Neil Gaiman!

(Not for arachnophobes)

If you've driven past the Jean Cocteau Cinema today, you may have noticed a giant spider crawling up the side of our building at 418 Montezuma.

That's because tomorrow night we are premiering SIXTEEN LEGS!

Neil Gaiman himself will be skyping in to introducer the film. And we have the Tasmanian film makers on hand as well.

Giant Tasmanian Cave Spiders and Neil Gaiman!! What more could you possibly want???

That sounds amazing…wish I could be there!

(And I hope it is playing somewhere near me…I'll have to look it up.)

I'm trying to recover from my own arachnophobia, and am making some good strides. (Ha!) For reasons independent of that effort, I've got two boxes in my apartment right now containing two preserved Pamphobeteus antinous spiders from Peru, which are also known as "Bolivian blue-legged birdkiller" spiders. They're quite beautiful, but also quite deadly…and I haven't opened them yet.

If we see giant ice spiders in the next two seasons of Game of Thrones, I shall certainly squeal with delight. ;)

Looking forward to this. Haven't been to the Jean Cocteau in awhile but will now have gone twice in 3 days for this event tomorrow and yesterday's Westworld. Westworld was literally the best premiere episode of a show I've ever seen. It felt like I was watching a movie, not a show. I hope it's another huge hit for HBO. Glad I got to see it on your medium-sized screen. Also, thanks for bringing one of the Emmys to the theater! It's lighter than I thought.

What more could I want? How about fewer giant spiders? Shudder.

About the name...
So for those of you (like me) who were confused by the name, I think the title refers to a pair of spiders mating, which is why it's "Sixteen Legs" instead of eight. And for those of you with arachnophobia, there was an interesting finding a few years ago that debunked the "All spiders are predators." Rule: The discovery of a vegetarian spider.

As magical creatures, the big big spiders might be amazing but damn I hate them. Would you please avoid using them in asoiaf?
