March 21, 2011 I attended the screening of the movie which Mike Shinoda and Joe Trapanese scored on, “The Raid”. I was so nervous! Adam from LPUHQ had said that Mike was going to be there and I instantly got my tickets, ’cause I mean, come on! Mike Shinoda was going to be there! So I arrived with my brother-in-law, who’s a big fan as well, and gave the tickets to Adam. I’ll admit, he’s pretty cute hehe. I wasn’t sure if we had to show the LPU laminate to authenticate that we really are LPU members so I asked him if we needed to show it and took out my laminate. He said, ” No, that’s fine but now I know for sure.” Being the anxious, shy person I am, I blushed like crazy at that little interaction with Adam hehehe.
So then my brother sees that they’re filming us. I automatically think it’s Mark but I saw him again that night and it wasn’t him. So then my brother says, “Smile for the camera.” and I just laugh and look into the camera.
So after that we go inside where the seats are and completely miss the reserved seats. If I had known I would’ve sat right behind them but oh well. My brother-in-law and I end up sitting 4 rows down the front next to two girls that were pretty loud but nonetheless awesome for being LPUers haha.
