I finally got around to watching Idiocracy the other day. Idiocracy is a movie about the dumbing down of people in the future staring Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard and others. Mike Judge directed and it was filmed here in Austin, TX. Several years ago when the movie was filming I got a call from a store I sell to called Parts and Labour that there was someone in the store working on the movie that wanted to talk to me about my resin jewelry. It was a long time ago obviously since I have not made resin jewelry in forever. Anywhoodle I set up an appointment to meet with some woman named Debra McGuire. At the time I had no idea that she is a HUGE costume designer who has been in charge of getting the casts of Friends, Heroes, Knocked Up, Super Bad and more dressed. I just thought it was some lady from California who liked my jewelry. She realized that I could customize the resin and asked if I would make a ton of jewelry for the movie. If you have seen Idiocracy you know that everything in the future is covered with logos. She gave me high res files of all those logos and I went to work making necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets for the cast. The movie’s release kept getting pushed back further and further so I was always curious whether any of my jewelry had actually made it into the movie. The other day I noticed Idiocracy was on the free to rent movie channel on my digital cable so I fast forwarded through looking for my jewelry. As you can see from the picture I found a few pictures. Now I have to go back and really “watch” the movie. I have heard mixed reviews about how it is and I think I may be the only person I know who did not find Office Space to be all that hilarious so who knows what I will think.
