Perry Ferrell and Matt E. Silver tear up Sundance at the GenArt party

Yesterday I saw five films: Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, The Dying Gaul, Hustle and Flow, Why We Fight, and Inside Deep Throat. That was a record for me, and by midnight my head was pounding from seeing three intensely thought-provoking documentaries. Right about that time my friend Marc Pincus, who founded hits me on the cellie cell and asks me to meet him at the GenArt Party. I figure I’ll go for half an hour, take some shots and get back to blogging.

Now, I’ve been clear on this blog that I come to Sundance for the movies not the parties. I’ve met so many people during the dotcom boom, back when I had two assistants and over 100 phones calls to my office a day, that now I’m just focused on my work. My work is blogging, and I’m a thousand percent focused on figuring out how to enable bloggers to make a living writing about their passion.

Oh, who am I kidding, I love a good party just as much as the next guy and GenArt’s party last night was hands down the best party I’ve ever been to in my four years at Sundance!

Here are some photos from the party, which was totally off the hook. This is the part of Sundance that has changed in the past 10 years according to some of my old-school friends. The only parties used to be condo-parties thrown by industry folks. A portion of the crowd last night looked like they were straight out of a Girl’s Gone Wild video.
