You, my good sir, ard awesome. I just had one question: do you ever read/reply to your physical fan mail, like what you'd get from the address you put on here recently? Thanks, Dante!
i actually love letters… some still make their way to me through the postal system. i love letters, getting them and writing them. its like a lost art writing letters, some times you can write things better than you can ever say them… at least i feel like that about myself sometimes.
If I were to spot you wandering at random throughout Izumicon, wouldst thee mind terribly if I gave you dap/took a picture with you holding my lightsaber? And no, lightsaber is not innuendo for anything else other than an Ultrasaber's Lightsaber. Probably the Scorpion.
I was just awaken in the middle of the night, I heard what sounded like a hand on the doorknob of my bedroom and padded feet walking across my hardwood floors to the side of my bed. Half asleep, I admit I was a bit scared, well not scared per say, but nonetheless, a bit frozen. As I felt a presence next to my bed I struggled to open my eyes slowly, thinking, I live alone, I wonder if a cat or…
I find it funny that in Avatar: The Last Airbender, Dante Basco plays the anti-hero and Mae Whitman plays a hero, and in American Dragon: Jake Long, Dante Basco plays the hero and Mae Whitman plays the anti-hero….

Sorry if my typing is a little bad, I'm a bit inebriated. But I saw your panel at Otakon and I was gonna ask you a question but the panel ended before I could. You are simply amazing Dante, and I just wanted to know what you do to reignite your creativity when you've found yourself at a low or a wall. How do you reinspire yourself to jumpstart your creative outlits again?
Well, tbh, had a drink or two tonight myself. So we’re a bit tipsy together. Thanks for coming to the panel. As far as staying creative, for me it just writing, a poem, a play, an essay, just anything.
I look outside my hotel room and the pretty lights twinkle throughout the streets of Edmonton and I notice how quiet it is as if the cloud covering the sky seems to dampen the sound like a puffy pillow and I wonder when I’ll be back in this quiet city and I’ll remember to bring a warmer coat.
Inspiration to be creative is all around us… Always is, you just have to take time to see it.
There is a grand chance that I might get your autograph on Sunday at the Edmonton expo and I wanted to draw you something from Avatar for you but my problem is that I don't really know what to draw for you. Got any ideas for me to get some inspiration?
People always draw me a character I’ve played or even myself. But if this is a gift for me to take home from you, draw me a picture of you. I think that would be cool. That way I’ll never forget what you look like.
Hello Mr. Basco, I absolutely loved your video with the Nostalgia Critic, and your talent as an actor is so inspiring! I can't believe you're in Edmonton! It would be awesome to meet you, but I don't have any money to get tickets for the Expo XD Nonetheless, have a wonderful time in Edmonton! HONOR! :D
