I worked on Forgetting Sarah Marshall and found out what a HUGE puppet fan Jason is. I can't wait to see this! Great article!

Well done Ed. It was by far my favorite film to work on. Alexander has retained his humanity despite all of his success and his film shows that.

@hawaii As a truck vendor I concur about the portions. I helped coordinate the first "Taste of Honolulu" almost 20 years ago and we emphasized then, that to allow for more tasting opportunities, the portions should be small. The problem is that it decreases the revenue for the truck that evening! (smaller portions=smaller checks) However, If it were seen as more of a tasting/marketing event then perhaps people could try more trucks.

Another thing I saw was slow production time for some trucks-the time from placing the order to receiving food. The limited space in trucks just doesn't allow for serving full meals in a "timely" manner. Tables in the front or back for assemly could help expedite food, but the quaint, romance of ordering at the truck's window gets lost. (I set the cashier outside to create more working space in the truck.)

The shear volume of people this wonderful event has attracted is nothing short of phenomenal! I, for one, appreciated every attendee!!
