With the take off of the Civil Wars, I'm not surprised at the explosion of duets.

EDIT: lol. i never actually watched to the vid, and now i realize it's not a duet. :S

Yeah, he does.  I personally loved the Smithwicks, soda bread, and Irish butter at the book signing last week. :-)

OK...IF Nathan Fillion gets any cooler, funnier or more just right I will have to dedicate my life to making sure he doesn't get eaten during the zombie apocalypse and I was going to dedicate myself to making sure I DIDN'T GET EATEN...but we'll see I guess.

I have personally seen and experienced what happens to people when they are hounded by fans and the press, even in happy good times, it's too much, it's too crazy and it's almost always thoughtless and usually completely disregards the persons humanity. In bad times it's cruel and it proves over and over how stupid and mean and small we can be.

My 2 cents: he IS an odd duck. He's very arms-wide-open for certain people at certain times, but other times he's really distant and weird. I think he's socially awkward and doesn't know how to deal with the attention that he gets (even though he pretends to want it). I've seen it a lot with comedians, too. They interact and engage with people online comfortably, but face-to-face they crumble and can be awkward and rude.

But like you said, I think WE are the rare exception. We just want to acknowledge that we like someone and appreciate what they do, when everyone else wants something (photos, autographs, a moment of recognition). John Barrowman said some really nice things on the Nerdist show about how too many people get shy or rebuff their fans and he hates it. He said that he owes his career and success to the fans, so he will always spend the time to engage with fans who come up to him, because he is grateful. The other guys were like "um, yeah" because they don't have the same attitude about it.

There's a great documentary about Conan O'Brien and he talks about this, where he tries to make time for as many people as he can after a show. So he'll say from the start that he only has 15 minutes or whatever, and he'll spend that 15 minutes taking pictures, signing autographs, whatever but after that he has to leave and there's always SOMEONE who didn't get what they wanted and calls him an asshole. And how much that hurts him -- it's not his fault that he can't spend hours and hours with every fan, every day. It brought him to tears.

Hi all...thanks for the invite +Daniel Swensen .  I've been out of town and am about to head again for the weekend but I'll settle down a bit after that.  Looking forward to you guys keeping my musical tastes up to date.  With the complete failure of radio in Los Angeles the only way I find out about new music these days is through friends.  Here's something I've been listening to lately while writing.

I am learning a lot from reading books that have been self published.

The Piers Anthony story is brilliant. It encompasses so much that is at the heart of me. The power of books, of writers, the need for teens to be truly seen and heard, the need to just escape...so much.
