Speaking of familiar fac, met Diana Leto, Mike Capprotti, Fernando Jimenez, Jeff Schultz, Jen Tracy (Who told me about the No Sleep podcast that I'm looking forward to checking out), Ryan Brady, Phillip McNulty & Jay Taylor, all of who I met last year, it was great chatting them briefly, and I had a rather long talk with Mark Holmes (the long time writer of FemForce) and learned of a film he made that I intend to track down.
