Knock one off the roster of things I've always wanted to do before I die. I met one of my favorite fim directors this afternoon, chatted pleasantly with him for about ten minutes, and didn't make an ass of myself. Until the end, when I asked for a photo (which I'm not publishing here, because my face isn't pretty enough), a request to which he graciously acceded.
Granted, meeting George A. Romero is probably an unconventional dream, but it was mine. And for those who've shared my dream, his glasses really are that big, but more striking is his height. At, I'd guess, 6'6", George could have played Small Forward of the Dead.
