Tealeaf: Ah, so that's why it's taken me so much less time to read through my twitter feed these past few days. I hadn't really realized before how much of what I read there is from him.
The Martian Manhandler: At least he doesn't have to worry about bad hospital food.
MattyFridays: Like his reviews, not a fan of his politics. Wish he would have two separate twitter feeds.
theurge14: See kids, this is what sitting on the couch watching movies all your life will get you.
GibbyTheMole: I feel bad for the guy. He has had a lot of bad luck, health-wise.
Ctrl-Alt-Del: I actually saw Roger Ebert a couple of years ago. Every year I always go to the Florida Film Festival, it is a tradition of mine that I have enjoyed ever since I was a kid. My favorite films to go to are the ones that don't get a lot of hype; the tiny little films that was made with not a lot of money, but with a lot of spirit. So that year I decided to see a film from Chile called Play, and I found myself being the only person in the audience besides the director, her crew, and one other man.That man turned out to be Roger Ebert.I couldn't pay attention to the movie, the entire time I kept my eyes glued on a person who I have idolized for nearly my entire life. After the movie, he walked up to the director and shook her hand, and then turned around and began to walk out of the theater. I always had a policy to never walk up to celebrities (it always seemed rude to me), but in this case I was willing to break my rule. As he was walking out I stumbled over the seats to get to him. He turned when I called his name."Mr. Ebert?"The man turned around. I was utterly stunned."I am a pretty big fan of yours. I have been since I was a little kid; I would say that I would not know half of the things I know about movies if it wasn't for your show."Just then he stopped, looked me in the eye. I will never forget what he told me;"blwaaaaahwawerrrrraaggh dfrrragggth. Thhhhssssrrrrup."/courtesy of Jonathan Hohensee
