lost1I’ve already confessed my love and infatuation with the early-1970’s TV Saturday morning TV series Land of the Lost.

It is true that it was one of many great celebrity encounters, but in retrospect this was quite a biggie. For a child of the 80’s such as me, meeting a member of the Brat Pack is beyond cool (this is my second meeting with a member of the exclusive group following Anthony Michael Hall).
