Fan has awesome encounter with Michael at DragonCon. I'm sick today and therefore emo, but I did get a little verklempt!

Last week, Michael's twitter was hacked, prompting this post & some amusing responses. I think this guy gets the Best Comment trophy:

But this one's pretty awesome too:

At NYCC. there was a screening of the 90 minute SV retrospective that comes with the complete series box set. Someone tells a story of how on "Rush", they were going to put a wire on AM so she could drop into Tom's arms. Tom suggested instead that he just throw her up in the air and catch her. How hot is that?!

Of course Tom didn't put in an appearance at the Con himself, the sexy recluse, but he's been sighted around NYC over the past few days. jeannev found this photo on twitter & posted at justtomwelling He looks very cuddly in that fleece! Also: GET BACK TO WORK, TOMMY!

This Friday, Michael is making a guest appearance on "Nick Swardson's Pretend Time." It's a sketch comedy show. Here is he with NS. Show doesn't air in Canada but hopefully someone will post a clip. US folks, anyone know this show?

Ever since I've been following Michael's career, he's been wanting to make a movie or TV show about his childhood in Indiana. First it was Green River Road, then Bullinsky, then Welcome to Paradise. It's evidently a story he's driven to tell. Here he is with the Mayor of Evansville & staff. Filming is slated to begin in early 2012.

And from the Charity Hot Dog event. Tongue!

It's especially sweet because the music of SV? Not so much his kind of thing. But he could tell how important the project was to the fan & realized what a significant gift it was.

That's an adorable DragonCon story! Aww.

I love that at pretty much every con there's a story about what a great guy Michael is and how he made someone's day and the recipient just wants to spread the word of his awesomeness. And that's why he's so lovable, of course!

Hope you feel better soon!

Michael does generate a lot of these stories. ♥ I love that he could tell how important this was to the fan and reacted with the right solemnity.

Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks, hon. I'm hoping to avoid a doctor visit. Last night, I kept waking up convinced I was on a plane! No idea where I thought I was going!

I love that Michael story from DC. He really is a sincere guy and I truly believe that he appreciates his fans the way a celeb really should. My DC encounter with him seems like so long ago, but it will always touch my heart.

Tom needs to stop dicking around and get a job! *sniff*

I never heard of that show, but I looked it up and it's on Comedy Central. Do you know what day it's supposed to air? I can record it, but not sure how to get it from my TV to my PC. I'm kind of useless, I guess. lol. They'll probably have it up on their website, or someone will get it on youtube.

Hope you're feeling better!

His Con appearances have produced so many nice stories over the years - with yours being one of the nicest. I hope you get to see him again!

YES HE DOES!

RosenbaumMedia has a vid link to Michael's clip - I thought it was hilarious (but it is quite rude.)
