I only know 3 Black Eyed Peas songs and already used two of them in my cheesiest fashion possible. I just can't think of anything I can use My Humps for ;)

Seeing as the show will be during the convention on Wednesday night I'm not sure I'll be able to make it. I wouldn't mind meeting Quentin Tarantino though.
