He came into my job (a movie theater). He was alone and appeared slightly disheveled, but on purpose. Pretty cool overall. Definitely not the type I would expect to be going out in public alone. I told him I loved him in The Internship, mainly because it was the first one that came to mind and the only film of his I saw in that same theater in which I worked.

He's surprisingly short in person. Other than that, he's just like he is on TV, which was a bit of a surprise too in many ways. I told him how great it was to meet him and that he is just as famous and influential as the people he interviews. He was stoned-faced as he listened. Appreciative, but stoned-faced.

Met her at a film festival in 2013. We had both finished watching a documentary about why many black women can't seem to find a suitable counterpart. There were a group of women in the room who apparently felt strongly about the content during the showing and I found out at the end that she was in that group. She's beautiful without make-up, which never was a surprise. If we'd lived in same city I would've tried my luck with her.

The only member of the group nice enough to take a few seconds for a picture. My camera didn't work, but that was a personal flub. Considering that I planned on interacting with all of them and that they were almost adamantly against it (Wish Bone and I made eye contact and he still walk past me, Krayzie looked my way Layzie was talking to a family member, Bizzy must've snuck away), I really appreciate that he stopped.

Normal guy with just really special, REALLY funny way of explaining his point of view. Can you believe he actually put out an album, a rap album at that, based on his most famous catchphrases?!? If I remember correctly it's called "62 Cent".
