Relavent to anime, I've met John Swaysey at Nom-Com 2010, then Veronica Taylor at Nom-Con 2011, quite the thrill to be standing beside the original voice of Ash Ketchum.

Outside the confines of anime, I've also met Tony Robinson, very nearly met Midge Ure, and had my picture taken with four brothers of the late Michael Jackson (Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito Jackson).

I met Adam Sessler, formerly of G4 fame, in an elevator at the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention. I didn't geek out in front of him but actually apologized for not doing so. I know he's a big name among the gaming community but I never watched him so he was just another guest there to me.

while working a vendor booth for Star Wars convention in Los angeles about 5 years ago I saw an old lady walk up to me and ask about a raunchy shirt we were selling, then suddenly about 6 bodyguards appeared, then it clicked! wait a minute you're Princess Leia Carrie Fisher. i didn't recognize her only familiar with her much younger days

luckily we didn't have the shirt size in stock and she gave me her assistant's phone #, said to call this once we get the shirt. Our office was 3 hours away so we had our guy print and deliver the correct size to us. Called the number and was escorted to the front of a 2 hour line to give the shirt directly to her. I asked if I can have a photo with her and she said Yes, while her assistant said No at the same time (this was an autograph only line, not allowing photos) I got the photo :-) while hundreds of hardcore star wars fans were giving me dirty looks LOL

to top it off she gave me a free photo print with a huge autograph thanking us for the shirt, which she gladly pre paid for. Few weeks later we shipped her more shirts to her hollywood address

I've met the Queen a couple of times quite a while back. She went around and met the the senior Air Cadets for the region after our parade that day, and while I introduced myself properly, after that I quickly ran out of things to say, not to mention I bit my tongue out of nervousness.

The second time was at a garden party about 4 years later, after I'd left Air Cadets and gone to university. I'd prepared myself and wasn't so shaky, introduced myself again and she actually said something along the lines of "You've relaxed since last time - it's done you wonders. What have you done since you were in Air Cadets?"

Seriously, most famous royal figure worldwide remembers random guy after 4 years. I've never been so humbled in my life.

I met Andy Dick at the Tinderbox smoke shop in Columbus, Ohio. I was smoking my long Gandalf pipe. He made fun of me for smoking said pipe. I didn't even realize who it was till he left.

I didn't actually go up and meet him, but the time when I was going up the escalator to leave the Whole Foods in New York City, I saw Robert Irvine and a camera crew filming a live episode of what I thought was Dinner Impossible.

Of course, there are also the ones that I've met at the conventions, like Vic Mignogna and m.o.v.e. (free autographing session). One person that I would have loved to meet was Yoshitaka Amano, but I'm not sure if he'll ever come down here again.

O, it must be at least 5 to 7 years ago now myself and a male bud chatted with Francis Bean, Cobain's daughter..
those were the days when she was living with a step dad or mum or someone and she never took off his flannel shirt and
men's flannel pj bottoms...she liked this song my friend had posted.....that was kinda cool..

I just recalled that noticing a poster noted his (Kurt's) birthday..

I briefly dated a guy in a well known band...won't give the name....but it was pure agony/ectasy///

I met Dennis Rodman at a Minneapolis Strip Club called Sheiks. I was standing outside around closing time and I saw him walk up. I was a big fan of those Bulls teams, so I was a little starstruck. We went inside and ended up kicking it after-hours sipping a bottle of Cristal while he threw a garbage bag full of ones at strippers. That night was the ISH!!!

Also met Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) with his wife and baby with my sister in LA when I went to visit her and had breakfast. All very cool people.
