December 1st, 2013.
Being from Australia; and having an iPod that is probably about half-full of soundtrack scores, and much of the remainder comprised of weird stuff I picked up on my travels..... it might seem strange that I would head in to London for the premiere of a Documentary about Manchester United, set to be attended by several of the band OneDirection.
Genuinely, I'm not sure why either. My knowledge of Manchester United's 'Class of 92' was limited to verifying that David Beckham was one of them, and I can recognise him due to his magnificent hair. Meanwhile my knowledge of OneDirection is limited to the screaming of teen girls and the name Harry Styles, once again primarily due to his magnificent hair. (Needless to say, that's more than enough reason to head down to Leicester Square on a Sunday evening).
So, with sincere apologies to any fans of either Manchester United or One Direction, neither of whom are well served by my lack of knowledge in their areas of superior performance, here's how I felt it went down*
So.... after that, I faced the long trek back home, wondering if my hearing would ever return, and trying to figure out what documentary the bandmembers of Def Leppard would likely get invited to attend...
Until next time, it's another for "The Archive of Movie Premieres"
