Batman by Gabriele Dell’Otto
These guys are window washers at the children’s hospital in Memphis. After being asked several times by the children if they were spiderman or superman, the workers decided to buy the costumes and actually show up as the superheros. Full story HERE
“I got a fan letter from a young lady. It was a suicide note.
So I called her, and I said, “Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan. Scotty, from Star Trek.” I said, “I’m doing a convention in Indianapolis. I wanna see you there.”
I saw her — boy, I’m telling you, I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was definitely suicide. Somebody had to help her, somehow. And obviously she wasn’t going to the right people.
I said to her, “I’m doing a convention two weeks from now in St. Louis.” And two weeks from then, in somewhere else, you know? She also came to New York - she was able to afford to got to these places. That went on for two or three years, maybe eighteen times. And all I did was talk positive things to her.
And then all of the sudden — nothing. I didn’t hear anything. I had no idea what had happened to her because I never really saved her address.
Eight years later, I get a letter saying, “I do want to thank you so much for what you did for me, because I just got my Master’s degree in electronic engineering.”
That’s…to me, the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
I’m so sick of seeing people’s dumbass posts about Tim Burton and Johnny Depp working together “too much,” or Tim Burton having some sort of monopoly on Johnny Depp. Each one of them has done quite a bit of work in their career without the other. Also, if you have the chance to work with your BEST FRIEND and you work really well together, enjoy the same creative aesthetic and enjoy what you do, why the fuck wouldn’t you do multiple projects? Johnny Depp hasn’t signed some sort of blood oath contract with Tim Burton that’s preventing him from working with anyone else. Shut up and get over it.
