…and Ryan Gosling read the blog

Category: Life,Tattoos

So, somehow or other, Ryan Gosling got ahold of my blog post about being on The Last Word, and he tweeted about it…

Now, those who haven’t been reading the blog from since way back when probably don’t realize that Ryan Gosling is in my all time favorite movie, Stay. I have two tattoos from that movie, it helped me get through the first few months after I was trached, after Sara left that first time before the last time.

Ryan Gosling as Henry Letham…

“Apparently, I can”
One of my favorite lines from Stay…

Yes, having Ryan Gosling mention me in a tweet meant a lot, it was really fucking cool.

    Your statement was articulate and moving! I doubt I could have written anything that good, even with days to prepare–I think I would have crumbled under the pressure. Extra congrats on the shout-out from Gosling. I’m not surprised that he was impressed!

    Ryan Gosling is right. You, along with your mom, are the real life heroes. Thanks for being so open and honest on “Last Word”. By allowing millions of us to get to know you and what you’re going through, you are shining a laser light on how heartless and cruel the GOP healthcare bill really is. Stay strong (and incredibly cool)!

    Michael – that is awesome! Your eloquence on The Last Word has gotten a lot of attention – and that is a good thing.

    It gives me some hope in humanity. Stay strong man, you have a lot of people pulling for you!

    Ryan is right! You are the true hero. Thank you for your honesty, humor, strength, and courage. I think about you and your mother every time I pick up the phone and call my Senators and representative. I am cheering you on every step of the way and will be fighting for you from California. Go, Michael!
