He just finished watching movies for 24 hours in one movie theater. We get a rundown of the “Butt-Numb-A-Thon” film festival from Current State’s Jamie Paisley, including how he and his fellow marathoners will be part of next year's “Star Wars Episode 8.”


This past weekend, about 200 self-described film nerds assembled in Austin, Texas. They were there for an endurance test made up of 24 hours of non-stop movies.

One of those 200 nerds was WKAR’s own Jamie Paisley, who has the lowdown on "Butt-Numb-A-Thon." One highlight was Martin Scorsese’s newest film, "Silence," which opens publicly Christmas weekend.
