    Bake, I’m sorry; I know I only sent that to you the day before the deadline but that’s when I heard back from my contact.  It might be possible to get in piecemeal, let me know what shows you want to hit.

    But more importantly, I am ABSOLUTELY THERE for Black Sheep.  Some of those other films I wouldn’t mind seeing, most notable the rat flick, but there is no way I’m missing the Black Sheep.

    Let’s coordinate!
