Certain people make a very large impression on you. It’s almost always the people that’re the kindest, the most genuine, sincere people. Never the people who’re really negative, those kind of people just disappear over the years. It’s the people like her where I actually knew who that was as soon as I found out, because she’d been there over the years and was just the sweetest person. I remember the meet and greets where she’d come up and she’d always have something nice to share. She always had something nice to say. She always seemed very genuine. One of the things I remember was that she always seemed like she was looking out for a lot of younger fans, which was really awesome, to see that kind of kindness come from somebody. You do get to know the really good ones, you know? The really good people are the ones who stand out. It was really upsetting for me to find out she passed away.
I interviewed Gerard Way and it was OVERWHELMING. Got a bit dark-confessional there but I’ve never maintained a facade of professionalism more than tenuously and when you get 20 minutes to talk to someone who’s played such a significant role in your not-being-not-alive status and you’re probably never going to talk to them ever again in your life, well, what’s one to do?
We talked about comics and music too, though.
