I’m heading over to Santa Monica and the Spirit Awards tent around 11 ayem or so, Stand-up, stroll-around schmooze time happens between 12 noon and 2 pm, which is when the show goes on the air on IFC channel (5 pm eastern). There’s also some kind of live webcast thing going on via www.ifc.com.

I’m bringing the laptop with a hope that some kind of wi-fi will be available. The Bagger says he’ll be blogging from the press area so maybe he knows something. If the wi-fi”s happening I’ll do my best with the pictures and potshots. I don’t know about blogging from the big, noisy, super-crowded after-party at Shutters — that may be pushing it.
