Here's a question for the Pit. Has anyone ever written to someone famous and gotten a response?

Last night I wrote an email to Walter Jon Williams, who wrote for some of the Star Wars Extended Universe. I asked about the pronounciation of "Yuuzhan Vong" and got a reply within a couple of hours.

I once e-mail Dave Mustaine and asked if I could have his old ESP guitars and he didn't need them now he's with Dean.

He told me to go **** myself

I sent an e-mail to Jonathan Coulton about one of his songs, he replied fairly quickly and was pretty helpful

I emailed Scooter Ward from Cold and was talking to him for a few months.

Zachary Vex (ZVex pedals) is really prompt and helpful if you have any queries, as were the rest of the staff that helped me with repairs I needed.

Arjen Lucassen isn't really famous, but he's a musician, so that's good enough for me.

I also e-mailed myself once

I emailed Chris Jerico once but he never replied, probably cause I addressed it to Y2K
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

The Y2K bug? So that's why nothing happened, it was busy reading your e-mail.

I hope you're happy, now it's going to have to wait for 3000

If another famous person replies to me, I'll tattoo the e-mail to my face!

God I hope they keep it short.


Don't worry, I'll keep it concise and to-the-point.

I got a few replies from Tom Savini a few months ago but he was disgustingly blunt.
I love him, he's my hero. I poured my fucking heart out to him, wrote about 4 paragraphs in each and all I got back was' thanks Drew' and 'no...' respectively

Nah I asked him if he was involved in the Friday 13th remake in any way, as well as some other stuff.

I just had to check your profile to see if your name really was Drew. It'd be a real kick in the arse if he'd e-mailed you back saying that, and your name WASN'T.

I talked with Hayley Williams on Bebo, back when I was into Paramore.

But then I became a Matt Bellam-ite, and all is good!

My freshman history teacher made the class write to Oprah. One of my friends almost started each line (all in caps) with the letters FUCKYOUOPRAH, but he changed it. That would have been awesome .
At the Justice Tour:
Guy in audience: Libertyville represent!
Tom Morello: Yes. Libertyville…represent.

I once got an email from the president of Nigeria, he was going to deposit 100.000.000 dollars into my bank account, and wanted my information.
I was too shy to answer.

I emailed Klashnikov, inventor of the AK-47 and 74u.

He was suprisingly nice for a COMMUNIST ASSHOLE.
