    Yes, quite a few people had brought things so the last I saw he'd set up at the ticket-taking table outside of the auditorium and was signing. Hopefully it didn't take too long. I mean, after 3 solid hours in the spotlight he must have been exhausted!

      Thanks, everyone for the reports. I shudder to think what it would be like relying on some of the bloggers linked here for information!

      I guess I'm more or less agreement with JMS on the various B5 "sequels", although only LotR, a couple of the TNT-mandated Crusade eps and maybe the Lochley segment of TLT count as actual minuses in my book (some of the other stuff is just meh, but the majority is enjoyable on one level or other). Anyway, he got back on form quickly enough with Jeremiah.

      Actually, I must confess I'm a little surprised no-one in the audience seems to have thought to tease Joe about the "Stu Radzinsky" character introduced on Lost this past season. Eric Lange's marvelously cranky performances invariably cracked me up, especially in his scenes with Daniel Dae Kim .... the casting call notes for SR - given under "Trivia" in the link - raised a smile as well.

        Renata and I are clearly visible in the front row several times.

          Thanks for the link Jan. I'll watch it tonight after work. I love hearing jms speak. He can be so inspiring.
          What a wonderful world you live in. -
          Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

            This was one of the really great ones, IMO. Yes, he can be very inspiring but there's a lot of fun there, too.

              Jan,

              Thank you for posting this.

              Your exchange with Joe is at 2:18:05 - 2:19:58 in the video. Your question was thoughtful and Joe's response introspective. It is clear from the video that you and Joe share significant mutual respect.

              I am assuming that Renata is the young lady with the Camera in the attached image.

              Were any of the other people asking questions regulars on JMSNews or RASTB5.mod? Who else did you encounter besides Renata and Joe?

                Yes, that's Renata who took some wonderful photos (I love that one with the big-screen JMS over my head) . The other people I finally met in person were WorkerCaste from here at JMSnews and Scott Lerman from the Newsgroup. Interestingly, I met another lady at JMS's spotlight yesterday who said she recognized me from the MIT talk but I didn't have a chance to ask her how she knew my name. I don't know if any other questioners were regulars or not. If so, I don't think they identified themselves as such.
