Dinner with Gene Ha was a like a rock and roll tour bus, but without all the blow and women and well, everything. But we had corn bread! Anyway, love the guy -- and loved every waiter and waitress who stopped at the table as I was oogling his art.
Otherwise, much love to this blog post from (postmodernbarney):

What Nerds Need To Remember
"Made lots of money" is not the same thing as "was good."
"I liked it more than X" is not the same thing as "it was better than X."
"They" don't owe "the fans" anything.
"The fans" did not save it.
"The people who only like it now that it's popular" are not inferior to "the longterm fans."
"Enjoyable" is not the same as "good."
The creators are not beholden to your "personal canon" or fan-fiction.
"They" are not out to personally ruin your enjoyment.
Someone who likes it for a different reason than you do is not wrong.
Someone who doesn't like it is not wrong.
