Journey to the End of the Night 2012

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

Another year, another Journey to the End of the Night. This year’s course took runners from Humboldt Park through Logan Square and Wicker Park before ultimately ending in the meat packing district. After chasing people (including Felix) for a few hours, I settled in at one of my favorite checkpoints in Journey history: Paparazzi!

As runners stumbed into the checkpoint, exhausted, they were guided down a red carpet where a slew of photographers, fans, and reporters were begging for their attention.  As a faketographer, I took photos and shouted ridiculous questions and comments.  My favorites were War Horse themed: “I loved you in War Horse!” “When does shooting start for War Horse II?”  “What was it like to work with War Horse?” “Why weren’t you invited to War Horse’s birthday party?  Did you have a falling out?”

By the end of the night, I couldn’t name another movie.
