The ET 2 Adventure Continues

Last week I went to CAA (Creative Artists Agency) to talk to Spielberg's agent, Richard Lovett. I walked in and talked to the receptionist. She said I needed an appointment first. She gave me the phone number to the main switchboard. I stepped out and made the phone call. They transferred me to his office. His assistant told me he doesn't take unsolicited meetings which I already knew. She transferred me to special services where no one picked up. I figure it's just a way to get rid of people like me. I called her back and asked if I could send a letter. She said for legal reasons he can't read anything. The picture is of the building in Century City where CAA is located.

Today I talked to Keith Atkinson, the Southern California LDS Public Affairs director who's office is located on the temple grounds. I asked if he knew Jerry Molen. He said he did and would get some contact info for me. FYI Jerry Molen is LDS and produced several Spielberg movies including Schindler's List for which he won an Oscar. He also produced The Other Side of Heaven. He is currently living in Montana. This could be pretty big but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Rally at Universal Studios

For those of you wondering, I did actually go through with the rally. Joe and Sam flew down from Seattle. It was their 10th anniversary so they fit in Disneyland and Magic Mt. Emilee and Cody drove up from San Diego and dad came up from Mexico. I had about 30 people participate. A lot of people were wondering what the heck was going on. I had a few bikes with baskets. I bought a red hoodie for everyone that showed up. I thought it was fun and went well.

I went back out by myself on Thursday and Friday with a big 8 foot by 10 foot sign. On Thursday I was on the same side of the street as the studios. A security guard came and told me to go to the other side of the street. He had a no questions asked attitude. I was a little offended. I was on the sidewalk. What were they worried about? Anyway the sign was so big I couldn't carry it because of all the people in the crosswalk. I couldn't see much and didn't want to hit anybody so I drug it behind me and people went around it.

A passerby told me Spielberg is in Sweden right now. He also told me I was in the wrong place. He said Spielberg's offices are on the other side of the studio. On Friday another passerby told me to go to the Barham gate (which is on the other side of the studio) because his friend worked for Amblin and that is where he entered the studio at. So next week I will be at the Barham gate with my big sign.
