TGON Meets: Harry Knowles

March 4th 2014, was probably one of the best days of my nerd life. One of my co-workers came up to me and said “ Have you ever heard of Aintitcool.com?” and I politely responded “of course!” The smile on my face shot through the roof when he finally said “Harry Knowles is coming into the exhibit”. When i was 15 years old, I came across his website and was in absolute nerd heaven. I have idolized the guy since then and always admired his bluntness and honesty. I didn’t know if he was going to be OK with me coming up to him on a day off enjoying the exhibit with his wife. Even though I was working there quite the opposite happened. He was one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure meeting. We talked about how much Star Wars meant to us and nerd life in general. He even complimented me on my knowledge of Star Wars, which was huge for me. He was more than happy to take a picture and sign something for me. He thanked me for being a fan and went on his way. It was quite the experience and I’ll never forget it! – Tyler
