Mar 10 - INSURGENT Apple Store Event, London

It's been a few weeks since the last premiere, and nigh on a year since the premiere of "Divergent". And although the World Premiere in London is scheduled for tomorrow, today I was able to go to a short-notice Apple Store event that was only announced that morning. I'm not in the market for an Apple Watch, and the last product I bought was a Generation 3 iPod (brand new, from ebay, a few weeks ago) (sorry, apple, your new iPods are ugly) but they don't need to know that. Here's the highlights:

The crowd was 95% female and teenage, and I am neither of those things. Fortunately, discrimination based on age and gender is (apparently) on the wane in this country. Weird looks perhaps not so much

"My daughter is going to kill me if I don't take decent video of this event... I should probably get a third camera rig"

"For all you girls who've been waiting here since noon, if I told you Shailene and Theo weren't coming, how many of you would stay just to listen to me since you're already here?"

"Thank Zeus you guys showed up. I was about to be torn apart by angry teenage girls. Not the worst way to die, sure, but it's only Tuesday."

"Thanks for that. Take a seat, Katniss" "I think you mean Tris?" "Sure thing, Hermione"

Shailene Woodley is pretty, but mainly I'm staring at her jumper because it looks like one of those Magic Eye patterns from back in the 1990s. You know... the decade most of the fans of this franchise don't remember because they're too young.

"So do you know if they're turning the last book in the series into two movies, or are they going Full Hobbit and making a whole trilogy out it?"

"Chris... I think that dude over there is in his mid-forties and also a DUDE. Is that okay?". I'm not sure. You tell me. PS > I'm not that old.

"No, my name isn't actually 3.14159 or "Pi"... it's 'Four' " "Wow. That's not even rounded correctly, Theo. Is it, like, a metaphor?" "Not that I'm aware of"

"Pick me! Pick me! Oh... we're choosing who gets to ask US questions, and not the other way around".

"Any of you guys have a question OTHER than "Will Theo James Go Out With Me"?"

So.... that was that. And here's more photos from the World Premiere tomorrow. On the plus side, if I can get in I should be taller than the majority of the crowd. On the negative.... I assume it'll be loud and crowded.
