I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I ran into Michael Phillips today.  He's very tall.  I was starstruck.

Yeah, I spoke to him at TIFF. He sat in front of me and Sam C. Mac at the screening of The Informant! He was very cool. Seemed to share my opinion on Up in the Air, and off the top of his head he claimed A Serious Man as the best film at the festival. I also met Peter Sciretta from Slashfilm.

Dear FroHam,

The same day that I met Michael Phillips I also met one of your heroes.



He's an incredibly nice man.  Still very cool.
...and when I spoke to him. he said he would vote for Die Hard.

Oh man. That is amazing. I would love to meet him. Every interview I've seen him in he comes off as such a nice down-to-Earth kind of guy.

Wow that is totally cool!

Also, who is Michael Phillips?  Because at first when I read the name and you said he was really tall, I was thinking about the swimmer dude, and was being impressed that he had interesting film opinions because he seems like kind of a lunkhead, but then I remembered that's Michael Phelps....and realized I don't know who Michael Phillips is.  At least not off the top of my head.

Okay.  I've heard him, just didn't connect it.

Got word that my one friend saw Kanye West walking out of an elevator yesterday in some NYC building or something. I'm not sure if he was being real, but if so I am jealous. I still have not had any prime celeb encounters.
