  1. After what happened with autographs in Kraków when he was there, congratulations biggrin . A friend of mine got one just by means of pure persistence (though there was an idea to just simply start singing Totoro to him to coerce him, which never materializes).

    100s of people were waiting next to the stage. The organizer had to step in to say that "He is tired of the show and will not come out. He wanted to thank everyone who came".

    But a small group of like 20-30 waited outside near the back entrance, he came out to go to the car and a few guys were allowed to get an autograph. But everyone was behaving so nicely he had not a problem to stay a bit longer to sign even more! (including mine) I think he signed for about 10 minutes. Then he went to the car, opened the window and said goodbye to all of us for the last time.

    Wow. Sounds like what happened at the John Williams concert in Boston in 2014, i.e. the one where I shot this photo:

    I also remember the mayhem with Silvestri & co. in Ghent a couple of years ago. The organizers always underestimate these things...
    I am extremely serious.

    But what was magic about this moment is how serene (right word?) it was. No pushing, no yelling at all.

    I think we were all too afraid of scaring him away :D

    That's good to hear. "Fan mayhem" always made me uncomfortable, even when I was at the receiving end of it a decade ago.
    I am extremely serious.
