Excellent point. There were probably a lot of people there who loved Raiders when it was released, yet don't log onto a nerd board every day to discuss it.

The sugar sweet familiarity while getting the name wrong is all part of being a talk show host I suppose. Either he read his notes wrongly or they were written wrongly for him or he cannot remember the movie or he didn't even see it, but to us fanboys and fangirls things like that are always going to stick out like the Washington monument. Accuracy is like a barometer for our dedication and love (and obsession too). Great to see Karen though. I wish one of us could interview her instead - that would be fun.

I'm dubious of any presenter (over the age of 18) who uses the word "cool" on national television.

I hate the usage of the word 'cool' except when it refers to temperature. The actual utterance of it as a term of social agreement directly corresponds to a marked decrease in brain activity and IQ. The next time someone uses it in front of you watch for the eyelids drooping, sageless nodding of the head, pouting of the mouth and of course nothing else better to say. These are all symptoms of the effects of using the word 'cool' in anything but idle banter concerning the weather or the temperature in your fridge.

I am so jealous!!! I live about 15 miles from Naperville, and I had no IDEA she was at the grand opening of the Hollywood Palms. I met her back in...I think February of 2008, at the Hollywood Blvd. theater in Woodridge, IL (owned by the same guy as the Hollywood Palms) But I would have loved to meet her again. She seemed very genuine. And still a beauty!! Thanks for sharing your experience.

Un. Believable. I am from Aurora, and I was actually in town that day. I just saw this thread, and I'm kicking myself across the room. I didn't even know that theater had been changed into Hollywood Palms! The last time I was inside was like 10 years ago. I went to AMC30 2 miles away twice while I was in town, too! Rrrrg.

Don't let my jealousy give you the wrong impression, though. I am glad you and your son were able to meet Karen, she seems like a class act.

It's a brew-n-view too I see...

IndyClone, No worries about (only slightly) derailing your thread. I see you're in Midlothian...I hear you have an interesting cemetery down there...if you believe in that sort of thing.

i really wasnt aware of midlothian having a interesting cemetery unless you mean the cemetery close by where they had all the bodies dug up and the plots resold , then that is the interesting part

I can never remember the name of it. But a quick Google search yielded this...

Of course, this is only believe in the supernatural.

Very nice You're lucky they let you get that close to her with a camera. I wasn't so fortunate at the BTTF screening.

Hi Mark-

I just looked up this thread as we were looking at getting Karen for ComiCONN 2011 and I saw that link to that Batchlers Cemetery and read the article...

we have a "white Lady" ghost here in Trumbull and Monroe. Plus the story of the horse getting spooked and running into the pond and drowning the guy on the wagon is exactly the same for a cemetery here in New Haven where the ghost of Midnight Mary rises up.

bizarre how similar these "hauntings" are

I will admit, you guys here are lucky to have met and gotten autographs from Karen herself. I remain hopeful she will one day attend some UK conventions, like Memorabillia in Birmingham

Really cool! Karen is a super sweet lady. I had the pleasure of meeting her 2 years ago at Dragon Con. Still a very beautiful woman.
