"I'd say, "Hey, love the site. Keep up the good work, I'm a big fan."I think I would do something in the same manner.
You know, just show respect and stuff.
Well, if I saw Jeff I'd definitely at least want to shake his hand and talk to him. He's really the only guy in video games that I'd like to meet, and he doesn't even make them. Of course I'd like to see Ryan, Brad and Vinny too.
I think I'd be stoked if I got to chill with Cliff Blezsinski. I used to live in Winston Salem, NC...not too far from Cary, NC where Epic games is located. I don't really know why so many people give him a hard time for being himself.
It doesn't really relate, only in a celebrity sense, but I was in the same bathroom (standing at the urinal next) to Frank Miller once, in Pittsburgh. Nothing sucks the celebrity out of someone like having them walk into the same bathroom as you and standing next to you as they try and take a piss. There was another time where I was in the same room as Frank Miller while he was playing a high stake game of Poker too, but I didn't have nearly enough scratch to join in.
And then there was the time I was in the same elevator as Joss Whedon, while in Chicago. I didn't know who he was and this was at the same time that Buffy was in its prime. We had a very casual conversation about Chicago, and when we exited the elevator there were a couple of kids clamoring for an autograph. I never found out until a couple years later, from a couple of friends who were Buffy nuts, who he even was. I just remember thinking, "Huh, I guess he's somebody?"
Yeah, not that it relates at all, and I kinda hate people that name drop, so I'll shut up now. There's just something really unsettling when I think about running up and talking to somebody that I know them only thru their product, in a random, casual setting. If I'm lined up specifically to see that person, at a concert, a book signing, sure. I just can't see myself attacking someone randomly on the street because their "famous".
