Awesome. Truly, truly awesome. There is a stench of jealousy in the air around me. Or maybe it's the paint fumes. Either way, I'm jealous.

I can believe it. It's awesome that he has nothing against the rest of us. big grin

LOL [zoidberg]Hello PEEL, I'm bowling with friends![/zoidberg] and [Billy_West]I'm loving you all, except one![/Billy_West] Too great! big grin
Hah, neat.

I would never have bothered to meet a celebrity, let alone ask to get a picture with them, and then to actually tape them eek
That is right; i'm also not somebody who'd run after celebrities.

He says the internet is full of cowardly jerks, and he's right, but he realizes that it also has good people on it. smile He told me I should feel free to edit out that part about "all but one" if I wanted, but I liked it too much to do that. laff

awesome. you the woMan.

I am damn lucky and damn happy. smile

ETA: And out $100. wink

Man, but... it's BILLY WEST. Forty minutes from my house. And I hung out with him with four other people for a couple of hours. laff

Did he seem at all uncomfortable any of the time? Or did he seem to feel right at home surrounded by his fans?

I would definitely understand if he felt at all uncomfortable at times, especially since he's a somewhat older man.

He seemed pretty comfortable. He's a really normal guy. I was the youngest at the bowling trip by far - the next oldest was about 30 or 35. He's just really normal, not hamming it up but just being genuine. I like him. smile

Was everyone Futurama fans, or did he have admirers of his other work too?  I don't even know any of his other work, but I swear a whole crapload of commercials I hear these days sound like Mr. West.

Also, thanks for posting the videos and updates, if I had the chance, I think I'd plunk down $100 bucks to see him.  John DiMaggio and Katey too.

One more question, did you have him sign your shirt?  (I LOVE that shirt)

Thought of that too, like somebody said "Hey Billy, make a fan convention".
But if he really enjoyed bowling with his fans, then it's really nice! smile

Hehe, she should have asked him to act out a scene from the new episodes and secretly filmed it!

Sure yes, he's one of the greatest voice actors!
But i said, i'm not somebody who runs after celebrities.
Yay, I'm not the only one who doesn't feel the need to get handwriting samples and the like wink
I'm shy enough as it is meeting "normal" people, it wouldn't be worth me meeting a celebrity-type since I wouldn't either be bothered to ask, or be too shy to ask them anything. Emily is obviously far better suited to it, since she doesn't afraid of anything tongue

Besides, I get enough excitement out of meeting clool people that I've spent a while getting to know over the intermatrons. They're like celebrities to me big grin

Everyone was Futurama fans but a couple or most of us knew his other work (I didn't really). He said Futurama was his favorite gig because the writing is so great.

I did not have him sign my shirt. I did have him sign an Encore Toynami Fry action figure and the free copy of the Delivery Boy Man comic. smile

Thought of that too, like somebody said "Hey Billy, make a fan convention".
But if he really enjoyed bowling with his fans, then it's really nice! smile

He got paid for it, but he said he'd forgotten about it anyway. He was so bad at bowling. Said he was awful in school at anything that involved sports, and we bonded over that a little. laff We used bumpers, though, so he broke 100, at least. smile

Oh man! That's so cool!!!
You're so cute and pretty, hehe!

Thank you! love

So damn jealous, nice one lemily! Very cool pics and vids. [yancy]Lucky...[/yancy]

Glad you like them!

Nice pics, looks like you had a great time. Did you ask any questions about the new eps? wink...

I did not. I figure in a year that will be moot, but I'll still remember his answer for "what's your favorite voice" is that it would be like picking children to pick his favorite because there's some of himself in all of them. (Awww.) smile

I'm shy enough as it is meeting "normal" people, it wouldn't be worth me meeting a celebrity-type since I wouldn't either be bothered to ask, or be too shy to ask them anything. Emily is obviously far better suited to it, since she doesn't afraid of anything tongue

Besides, I get enough excitement out of meeting clool people that I've spent a while getting to know over the intermatrons. They're like celebrities to me big grin

I meet people over the interwebs all the time. My best friend is an interwebs person I met through a friend and only *met* a few months ago after almost two years of close friendship. smile Also, I'm on a dating site, so lots of internet meetups. laff

I was nervous at first, but knowing I'd have a couple hours with Billy really let me relax. I didn't have to be cool or whatever - I was just myself. Billy's really engaging when he talks to you - he's talking to *you*, not hoping the rest of the room will overhear and come over, if you get me. He said he can't stand people who get big-headed about fame, because, "What are the chances someone you meet loves your work? One in a billion! How great is it when someone loves what you do?"

Of course you are. My point is that there is good fame and bad fame. If you're famous, it's the bad kind. tongue
