My GF Just Met Neil Gaiman, Peter David & Julianne Moore!

Man I wish I could have gone to this thing. My GF is a librarian and just got back from some Book Expo in Manhattan. She knew before that Julianne Moore would be there signing her new children book, but not that Neil Gaiman and Peter David would be there!

Apparently the line to see Gaiman was huuuuuuuge. She got a signature from Peter David, just as he was complaining to someone that he didn't come here to sign other people's things (he signed her copy of "Marvel 70th Anniversary Celebration)

I guess this isn't open to the general public, only people in the "biz". I don't suppose anyone else here attended this?

I met Peter David a couple years back. He was very nice.

I met PAD and Gaiman at HeroesCon in Charlotte a few years ago. Both were wonderful.

Geekgasm.

To be honest I never knew Gaimen was so popular. He has like 0.4M people following his twitter.

Is that a good number or a bad number? I have no idea how Twitter works.

My friend is going and he promised to get me some cool stuff. I met Peter David back in 2007 and he was a great guy.

Re: My GF Just Met Neil Gaiman, Peter David & Julianne Moore!

I love it when actors/writers/whatever go to a signing event, then sit there and complain about it.

I once heard Jennifer Lien ask a convention staffer, "Do I have to talk to these people?"

If PAD doesn't want to sign other peoples' stuff, he could do like Henry Winkler does to ensure he only signs what he wants. The last event I saw Winkler at, you had to pay some amount for his signature, and he would only sign his book, which his people were selling right there. So the total was something like $85. I passed on that one, lol.

Great number. CNN and Ashton Kutcher have slightly over a million which is two of the accounts which have the greatest followers.

Why the hell does Ashton Kutcher have the top account? When was the last time he was in a movie?

He promoted the hell out of it, and people jumped onboard to help him be the first to reach a million. Plus, he tweeted pics of his wife's underwear-clad ass and stuff.
