A coven of fiends converge in Pacific Beach for the CSFU Creature premier!
Posted: March 18, 2013
A three-story-tall inflatable screen. And you thought the internet was cool.
$10 a car, $5 walk-in.
Gingers find each other. They just do.
Carlin gets down with a nacho supper. It was friday night after all.
One-time child video prodigy, Danny J, taking a break from running Wall Street.
Raffin studies the moves while Shockus is on the clock.
Popcorn machine broke.
It was dark as hell. Appropriate, I guess.
Early lock out. They eventually let everybody in.
Peacock posse on some bootleggin' lookin' program. What are you guys up to?!!
Legend of plywood, Twister, and a friend.
Deep in 'Mafia country. No half-steppin', please.
'You gotta get the license plate, too!'
Oh yeah. Good looks!
Don't know what it is, but the Creature program definitely brings out the babes.
Bug juice and vodka? Champagne? Like a slumber party on wheels.
Everyone's going for that Suciu look these days.
Freedom and the boys. Solid.
Tex rallies the troops while the babes get ideas.
Family affair, Witt style.
Cute-ass couples, everywhere.
Dublin Mob crew, holding it down two-thirds beardwise.
Knew there had to be a Thrasher somewhere under that thing!
I dont know what it is, but the ladies love an outlaw.
The Rhinos and Middletons, keepin' it casual.
Oh, you know them Shep Dawgs were there.
Floored by Hooker's part.
Ok, this shot was just for thee-atts, but it wasn't like they weren't hyped.
The Gregsons, always glamorous.
I finally reach the stars. Vamp gets cozy with the wizards behind the scenes, Denike and Jimmy.
Truman, the caboose in a USD babe train. Whoo-whooo!!!!
The Partanens and their adopted leprachaun son.
These girls demanded three do-overs.
But here's the shot they really needed. Those glasses definitely worked, Navs.
Finally, the heavyweights. Nice work, boys.
Silence and Willis, whom I accidentally bro'd before I know'd.
Sorry guys, after watching that awesome video I guess I felt like we already knew each other.
It's hard not to get emotional during these sorts of things.
Just let it out. Let it all out.
Congrats again, Creatures. Can't wait to hold the DVD in my hand (free in the next Thrasher)
Time to take this old-timey show on the road ...
But not before we thank the boss. Thanks, Boss.
