You’ve had me as a Guest of Honor for the past ELEVEN YEARS. That’s kind of amazing and totally humbling. Let’s put that in perspective: Some of the attendees weren’t even BORN when I gave my first panel, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had just split up, and I was still using MySpace. From my very first appearance I was struck with the joy and excitement of not only the fans, but of your fabulous staff who, year after year, have taken care of me and made me welcome and have turned AOD into a mini vacation that my lovely nurse wife Susan and I (along with Whistle the Wonder Dog and Little Mickey Blues Eyes) look forward to year after year. I kid you not, as I type this the Beatles song “In My Life” just came up on my 60’s compilation and I have something in my eye and I have to stop typing now. love you guys.
Oh, and, if anybody reading this wants to see my credits, just go to http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0690570/. It’s pretty much all there.
