I’m still buzzing from Saturday’s #MakeAmericaSmartAgain
screening of Idiocracy in Echo Park. And now with the debate last night let’s just say, it’s a ripe time to watch the movie and also to do everything you can do to #MakeAmericaSmartAgain. My wife Amanda and I were inspired by watching Idiocracy as a wake-up call for what the reality of the future really could be. We had no idea we’d be able to rally such a massive event AND that we’d be able to bring the creator and cast together for the first time in 10 years. Thank you so much Terry Crews, Dax Shepard and Mike Judge for being a part of the night! And thank you Elysa Koplovitz Dutton. Not only that, we were equally lucky to be able to score the first-ever performance by TRD MRK (DJ Nu-Mark from Jurassic 5 & SlimKid3 formerly of THE PHARCYDE).
I had a lot of fun, and the crowd was amazing, we had about 2,000 people there, food trucks, merch booth and there was even a patron who
made homemade BRAWNDO! It was rad to watch as the crowd watched the movie for the first time or 100th time and enjoyed a picnic in the
park with their community. In addition to combatting voter apathy, we were also raising awareness and money for our beneficiary the Young Literati of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles

"This is what is so great about this movie (Idiocracy)- the message is
that you have to think for yourself. And this is what I think is so
great about what Shepard and Amanda Fairey (Obey Giant) have done is
really just encourage people to think for themselves. Don’t just go
off smooth words and what you hear but actually look and examine and
think and you will make the right decision.” -Terry Crews
