Friendly Encounters: Mike Perry Meets Kane Hodder

This is a weekly series about friends who have met celebrities.

Sure, I have been to Flashback Weekend many times, but I wanted to bring a different perspective, so I sought the help of other attendees.  Enter Michael Rector.
Michael is a veteran of all sorts of these conventions. In fact, we run parallel convention courses...Flashback Weekend, Horror Hound, Days of the Dead and others.
Michael was kind enough to send along a picture of his friend Mike Perry who met Kane Hodder at a previous Flashback Weekend.
Michael also gave me a quick recap of the Kane Hodder experience.
I went with a group of friends and Mike had never been to a convention like this before. When I had seen Kane there, I talked to him briefly and introduced him to Mike and said 'Kane, you got to initiate him like you did me.' So I went to take the photo and like always with new fans, Kane put his hands around Mike's neck as if to choke him and that's when I got the photo. Kane has always been a class act and I enjoy talking to him at any convention I go to that he's a guest at.
So there you have it folks, another ringing endorsement of Kane Hodder. Thank you to Michael (and Mike) for sharing the story and picture. has hopes of getting a quick interview with Hodder at Flashback Weekend.  Check out for more info and schedules for this great event.
