Premiering Ain?t Easy
By Kindsey Young
Endless food, an open bar, desserts, and a lit DJ ? all the ingredients for a great night! It was my first premiere party, so I made sure to jot down my thoughts as things turned up at Twitter HQ.
7:00 pm I get to the check-in table. HOST: ?Insecure?? ME: ?Pshh. No, are you?!? He didn?t laugh. The End. #Insecorny
7:12 pm Everyone looks sooo good! And so does this food, omg.
7:30 pm It?s time!!!
7:32 pm I remembered reading the script and thinking, ?This is gonna be hard to watch.? It was.
7:37 pm ?PEC?nical difficulties: When the screen freezes but just so happens to stop on a shirtless Daniel..
7:45 pm Kev?yn!!! Feels so good to see this on the big screen.
8:00 pm East Coast airing is over! Time to party until the West Coast is ready for this tea. For now, we turn up. ?DJ, drop the beat.?
8:37pm Where there?s a photo booth, there?s a writers? group pic! So funny trying to wrangle writers together in a party, but the plan is for it to go down at 8:45?
8:45 pm Nope. It is not going down at 8:45 because people are still too busy dancing and at the bar. And I think there?s a dance battle downstairs.
8:57 pm OK, we did it. Writer?s group pic successful!
9:20 pm When you?re headed to the restroom but then the DJ plays, ?Back That Azz Up,? so you have to rush back to the crew before the beat drops.
9:42 pm At the bar. BARTENDER: ?We have two specialty drinks. Which would ?" ME: ?Both.?
10:24 pm Swag Surf before watching the West coast premiere = Mandatory. An example of crowd participation at its finest.
10:45 pm It?s even better the second time around!
10:56 pm Even though I already know what happens, when I watch it, I get excited and forget I already know what happens?
11:06 pm Party over! Had a blast. Going home? to watch Insecure again.
