I came out, I just saw this huge line of people, I sad: is that? Is that? What is that for? Is that for some event? – No, this is for tomorrow. It’s for what you’re doing tomorrow. – I sad: What? I mean what? How long have they been? – All day! – What all day? In this heat and they’ve got water? – Yes, some of them, some of them don’t, you know … – I sad: What are they, are they going to live on the street? – Yeah. – Can I go and talk to them? And there was lots of sort of furtive looks between the security: I don’t know. I mean that’s, we can make it work if you really want to. – I was: Yeah, hell do I do. I want to meet the people who make all this possible. Cause it’s all about that, it’s all about them. It’s about their enthusiasm, their devotion and it’s overwhelming and utterly humbling, whether they’ve come from miles, whether they put all their effort into cosplay, whether they stood in line for literally days, it’s inspiring and humbling and reminds you what it’s about.
