The IAS circus came to town, complete with R6 angels, helicopters, movies everyone was required to watch. The sheeple filed in, subjected themselves to 3 hours of loud noises, flashing symbols and lies about their accomplishments, dutifully stood and cheered, whistled and applauded at all the appropriate times, then filed out again, re-dedicated to the idea that they alone are saving mankind.
A few notable images below. Some of them we showed on the The Aftermath fundraiser yesterday.
Mr. Tom Cruise was in attendance — one person (appears to be one the Freedom medal winners from this year, which is probably why she was afforded the privilege) snagged a selfie with him:
The eunuch statue representing the IAS — Marc Headley told a great story about how his package was filed down yesterday.
Horses, they always have to have horses. They used to bring in real “knights in shining armor horses” — very large — now they just get them from the horse-riding farm:
Some other notables in attendance:
John Alex Wood and Gemma. Formerly the number one scientology internet troll – he hasn’t been sighted in some time. Good to see he is still forking over the cash.
The photo-bomber again, with another of the former IAS Freedom medal winners — I think she is from Colombia, but maybe Venezuela. Scientology took over those countries at one time (at least according to the videos when they were giving out the awards)
The proud Scots — wouldn’t miss this chance to make some money.
Tom Cummins and I am guessing his daughter — it’s not Victoria his Russian bride. Always a sartorial splendor intended to make him stand out in a crowd.
Tom again, posing in front of the stage. Even at his most casual, he strikes an imposing figure of bad taste.
Jenna and Bodhi Elfman, with another IAS medal winner. Jenna doesn’t look to happy to be there.
The aforementioned 10 foot high R6 angel with the unfortunately positioned dangling balls…
I would not have sat underneath that thing…
Taiwan seems to have a large contingent…
No idea who the following people are… But you can bet the regges know them well.
And finally, the gathering of IAS Freedom Medal Winners. Traditionally this photo was taken on the steps at the back of the Manor with the COB front and center. I guess he didn’t want to be anywhere in public this year, and was probably handing with the other biggest being on the planet in his private quarters in the Manor.
They didn’t even have enough of them attending to fill a shot. They have a whole bunch of non-medal winners in the background. And a lot of notable non-attendees: Anne Archer? John Travolta? Rena Weinberg? Peter Schless? Fran Andrews? Jan Eastgate?
But it’s good to see Jeff Pomerantz took his position front and center.
