Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2014

We miss you, Holly.

BNAT missed you, Holly!

For the last thirteen years, I’ve had the honor to attend the Butt-Numb-a-Thon in Austin, TX, for which I am ever thankful to cinematic madman Harry Knowles.

I won’t delve too deeply into my overall experience right now, since a) I don’t have the photos edited yet, and b) I’ve talked about everything at length for upcoming episodes of Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome and The Geek Life. However, I do have a tradition of cataloging every little thing that played at BNAT each year, including the trailers, so you can at least relive a little bit of BNAT yourself.

In addition to the links below, I’ve created a playlist on YouTube of all the linked videos I could find. Enjoy!
