Fallen Premiere
by Schmitty

I went down to San Diego for the big Fallen premiere, and hooked up with some bro's to see this long-awaited masterpiece from the Jamie Thomas camp. I ran into Rhino, and instantly awarded him with tour guide status. We started the pre-party in the comforts of Sally V's top room suite at the Hard Rock, and then stumbled our way over to Spreckels to see the video.
