Thank you so much for including me in this, Praxid! Such a lovely thing to read, and from such a great person xx

I feel like tumblr has brought us all together so we can support each other. We all deserve some love, sometimes.

You comin'?

They need to find more moments like this. People would have fun moments still and it makes it much more real. 

The pacing is so fast we only see them in crisis, really. We don’t see the very long moments between the crises—when they live their lives.

Melissa McBride on Carol, Her Fans and Feedback
Why do you think she’s survived?
She’s got a fan base. Maybe she’s lasted because there’s just something about Carol that represents something in the viewers. I also think there was a lot of story to be had with her coming from the background of abuse that she had – coming from the world that she had come from. There was so much room for exploration and growth.
There’s so much feedback for the show – from blogs, recaps, reviews and Twitter. Do you pay attention to any of that?
YEAH!
Do you respond to any of it, either publicly or personally?
I will while I’m reading it, like, “Oh my God, what an asshole!” “How old are you?” It’s one o’clock in the morning and I can’t believe I’m still reading this shit. Every once in a while, just as much as I say, “You’ve got to be kidding me,” I’ll say, “I understand your point of view. I was kind of thinking that myself.” It doesn’t filter back into what I do except every once and a while I’m thinking, “Gosh, you know, it would be nice if I didn’t have such gray hair.” But it’s too late now to do anything about it.

*Just a friendly reminder that Melissa McBride indeed does read some of the “feedback” TWD fans post online - as in she is privy to the hate, the negativity, the hurtful criticism and the ridiculous personal comments regarding Carols and her own “appearance”
**She is One of Us…and could be lurking around here right now…so let’s try and not be the “assholes” that piss her off at one in the morning!

What kind of gun was Carol using in The Grove? Was it a pistol or could it be referred to as such? I ask for reasons.

A pistol has a chamber integral to the barrel. Because Carol’s handgun was a revolver, it doesn’t fit the definition of a pistol.

I’m such a boob,…

I believe so, yes. Because the revolver has a cylinder—the thing that rotates and has several bullets in several different chambers. A pistol has the chamber inside the body of the gun—not in a separate, moving part.

So yes, all pistols are handguns, but not all handguns are pistols.

I’m kind of “meh” that he’s going to be there. The crowds are going to be crazy.

The bloom is off the rose in so many ways. The ship wars, the hype around his character. The overexposure. And from…

I hesitate to speak here but I’m struggling with this myself. The price is the same at FanExpo (double last year’s price) and it’s a huge amount of money for me right now.  I do have something I want to give Norman (something I created for him) but if there’s a chance it will not be acknowledged, I am not sure if it’s worth it. I did meet him last year and he was polite enough but did not go out of his way as he has done for some fans. Not that I expected him to. It was a paid encounter after all and he did his job plus there were hundreds of people and it would not be possible to be “on” for every one of them.

I do have to say that Melissa McBride did exceed my expectations when I met her and all encounters will now be judged against that one.

The problem was simply that it’s so big. He was given crates worth of stuff in that one weekend—how could he possibly gush over each thing? I’m sure he didn’t register what I was giving him—he seemed to be having trouble hearing me—so he probably didn’t realize it was handmade. He just thought I handed him a random book. I don’t blame him. It’s just that there’s too much going on around him—nobody could give attention to all that stuff, and all those people.

Anonymous said: I've seen higher prices for less interesting tv & film guests at cons (although I'm a TWD fan so I'm biased). NR is good about making sure everyone in line gets to meet him; staying after hours and on at least one occasion missing a flight home. He spends literally hours after filming to sign autographs for FREE for people who wait outside film sites. He's far too nice about it and people take advantage of that. AMC, TWD and fans demand a lot of his time and he gives it. Give him a break.

He certainly works hard, and I respect his work. But my experience was uncomfortable and I see no reason I should say otherwise. The hype is simply getting too big for one man to manage. It’s much less a comment on his character than a comment on the cult of celebrity and how it feeds on itself—and in the end, my feeling is that this cyclone of attention is far more damaging to him than it is to any of us.

I’m sure he’s a good person, and this doesn’t reflect on that—but I think a 100% increase in ticket price from last year is simply too high. Andrew Lincoln is charging $50 and donating all of it to charity. To charge so much cuts many fans off from a chance to meet him. And because of that—even if it isn’t intended that way—it makes the endeavor look like a cash-grab. It’s just an awful lot of money—so I genuinely feel that if other people charge more than $80, they shouldn’t.

Hangover, maybe? Heh.

That was where my thoughts turned. But of course, you can’t really know.
