from this super fun thread:
https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/c...ounter/d09bga6

Met Adam West. I was a huge fan, it was my first con, and I noticed holy shit his line is EMPTY.

I rush to the front, and he's leaning back in his chair, arms crossed, sun glasses on, 50-50 odds on him dozing off. He never says a word. First words out of his handler's mouth, "a signature is $60". I'd already blown all my cash, so I kinda shrugged my shoulders and said I didn't have the money. The agent says "or you can fist bump Mr West for free". He holds out his hand (while still slumped back into his chair) I bump it, it's over.

...

I always follow this story up, however, with the next celeb I met there: Ernest Borgnine. I get to the front of the line, both his hands clasp over mine, he shakes it big and gleefully, and gave the biggest, most genuine smile. We chatted for a bit, and I'm not gonna do a whole transcript or anything, it's just that he was... the warmest fucking guy. It was like I'd met an old friend for the first time in years, instead of some guy from the TV. This was just an impulse meet and greet - a chance to see Mermaid Man - but that encounter cemented me as a diehard fan.

I know I've been harsh about the biz. But I have met some very nice people.
It's the studio types that give me the piss por nada. Like that Joey Forman character
in an episode of The Monkees.

Steve, The YouTube for Triple Baka is not available for us Yankees.
For this reason, the odds are fair that we've never heard of it.
What can I do?

Just type Ha Tsu Ne Miku and let your browser do the work; there's no shortage of coverage of her / them. For instance:

That should soften the blow in all the ones in which I didn't respond at all

I decided to classify Hatsune Miku as Anime and Autotune blended with David Seville's Chipmunks---and gender reassignment.

StevOz: Your admonishment could be tailored for me, as my 'network adapter' drops its IP Address frequently, especially when trying to catch up on a TV episode. AT&T and I suspect my six-and-a half-year-old modem, but a new one was ordered two weeks ago and has yet to arrive. All because I won't buy U-verse?

Meh chipmunks? really now I'm going to take this post OT and as for oysters, why yes indeed excellent tucker, when I have been fortunate enough to be able to harvest them from remote locations, many moons ago, like 30 years ago just smashing off chunks of them at low tide and cooking them up on the beach in the pot in the sea water on the camp fire as for those rats with spines or quills, yeah na!

Oh and now for the OT clip....onya bike!

Default Gee-ess, Gregory--

I think you're mostly a good guy,
Of course, free to tangle with me,
So let's hold hands motherf_cker and,
dance on the grave of the Zuiderzee!

A six-and-a-half year old modem? Jeezum Crow, I've had three in that time! That's like 110 in modem years! Don't let 'em feed you that Uverse crap! Tell 'em a book of postage stamps would be a faster option than Uverse. Fucking AT&T. Stick it to The Man!
PMJ is the video with those hot broads Magoo posted up there. Not that I'm sexist. They're very talented. Those hot broads can sing!

Ahhh.....Post Modern Jukebox! "...the boys want something to hold on to..." Yeah, they're fun. My next mission, should I have decided to accept it, would have been to try Peanut Mutter and Jelly, among other possibilities.....

Ike: Do you realize that if we phuch with the Zuiderzee, we may endanger the PINemHi Leaderboards?
