My wife and I had an entertainment show in the early to mid-90s, and we got to have Ray Bradbury on.
The thing that struck me most is that he was happy to be Ray Bradbury. He was pleased with what he'd done, and never tired of the adulation -- which I can tell you is incredibly rare. I found it an inspiring encounter, and made me feel even more warmly about his work than I already did.
When I was in film school at USC, a bunch of us went to see an experimental play at the old Goldwyn
soundstage In LA, it was called Leviathan and was about Moby Dick in space and the author was Ray Bradbury. So we watched the play and it was cool and as we were beginning to leave, who shows up but Ray Bradbury, who proceeds to talk and take questions for over an hour.
Yeah I got to set up his mic and a/v while in college and hear him speak about urban planning - he was a genius and my favorite author when I was young. Illustrated Man and Martian Chronicles were my favorites - sadly the movies didn't do them justice.
