    because sometimes you meet people and they are even better 

    they say dont meet your idols

    i sat backstage with my favorite band the replacements when i was in college

    i got to meet elvis costello that one time in frisco

    and then of course now i work in the land of stars

    and there are these screenings where they talk afterwards

    at the times i had kareem abdul jabbar as one of our bloggers.

    the thing about your heroes or my heroes or stars or people you look up to is

    they might have a bad day the day you meet them

    or they might be in the best mood in the world and have always wanted to meet you.

    its a roll of the dice and if things dont mesh for that instant

    that doesnt mean that theyre terrible people.

    i took a job in frisco, working for the giants selling peanuts and beer

    for the sole reason to discover if Barry Bonds was an asshole or not.

    in many ways i am a scientist.

    and the message i have for you is this

    meet everyone.
