My Quest to Get Bruce Springsteen (or anyone in his band)

I’ve been on a quest to get my wife some Bruce Springsteen autographs. I make that plural, meaning...from the Boss himself, or any of the musicians in his band. Now, she’s not even into autographs. In fact, the only time I ever saw her excited about meeting somebody famous, is when she attended an event with me and got to take a picture with Rami Malek (pre-Freddie Mercury), because she liked the show “Mr. Robot”. But she’s from New Jersey, and it’s required…

The Hugh Hefner Auction

One of my autograph buddies always makes the two-plus hour drive to L.A. for autographs. Sometimes I hit him up to get me a signature, if it’s a book signing or something like that. I remember once he called me at a book signing and said, “For $50, they have this book that shows every Playboy centerfold, starting with the first issue.”

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was signing them, and I said “Nah. I’m not that into…

My Interview with Steve Poltz -- the best singer/songwriter you've never heard of

Having been born and raised in San Diego, and a huge music lover, I was always a fan of Steve Poltz. His first band The Rugburns had great live performances, and clever songs. The band was filled with other talented San Diego music legends. Poltz ended up being named “San Diego’s Most Influential Artist of the Decade.” He had songs that were rock, folk, punk, satire...hell, he did an album of tunes that were all answering machine messages (appropriately named…

BUGS BUNNY doesn't know who drew this: CHUCK JONES or VIRGIL ROSS

Does anyone have an idea who drew this animation production sketch on an animation sheet in graphite pencil over blue pencil?

Probably Chuck Jones or Virgil Ross.

Does CJ-53 indicate it's Chuck Jones?  What does M-17 mean?

Bugs doesn't seem to know. Neither do I.  Do you?…

GFA Authentication.com Search Uncovers Massive Amounts of Impossibly Identical "Autographs": Mantle, DiMaggio, Ali, Clapton, More

Productive Fall Graphing The Land

I believe my last blog was in August and there were more hits than misses this fall.

Two Hall of Famers- Steve Cropper and Dave Mason were touring together and made a stop at a local venue.  Great show and Cropper has great stories.  Both did the merch table after the show.  Mason was pleading with patrons not to ask Steve questions because he wanted to go back to the hotel. (Steve loves to tell stories- he told them anyway!)…

A Hitler Signed Photo You'd Never Expect to See

Sometimes the prices of things baffle me. Last year, a telephone owned by Hitler, used to issue commands during World War II, sold at auction for $243,000. That’s insane. And when I saw a story that showed an auction house had an autographed photo of Hitler with his arms…

The Morrissey Mob

When I was a teenager, Morrissey and The Smiths were huge. I was more of a Morrison and The Doors fan, but I liked a few of The Smith songs.

About 29 years ago, I was having dinner with a couple of women I’m friends with in downtown San Diego, and we walked out of a restaurant and nearby was a concert hall. There was a tour bus with about 50 fans surrounding it, screaming as if The Beatles were inside. We walked…

What Do El Chappo and O.J. Simpson Have in Common (aside from the obvious)

Mexican drug lord “El Chapo” is in jail, and potential jurors at his federal trial in New York are being called in. One that was dismissed was a Michael Jackson impersonator. That would be odd enough, but hey...we’re autograph collectors. Here’s the weird one we can appreciate. Sort of. A juror was dismissed after he asked Joaquin Guzman (his real name) for his autograph. I first heard that on The Daily Show.…

Neil Armstrong and JFK Auction Items

Some interesting John F. Kennedy items in the RR Auction that ends tomorrow. There’s a Harvard sweater, which would warm you nicely this time of year. I’d rather have the Commander-in-Chief bomber jacket, but that will probably be costly. Oh, and there are a lot of assassination-related items. That would include a handwritten letter from Lee Harvey Oswald, and an original window sash from the Texas School Book Depository.…

Stephen Hawking Wheelchair...and more!

We’ve talked before about things for sale that are in bad taste. I’m not sure if this would in that category but...Christie’s has 22 items from late genius Stephen Hawking, including his wheelchair! Now, I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on his doctoral thesis on the origins of the universe; mostly because my thesis on the subject has a few flaws and I’d like to compare notes.

Anyway, there is a book, scripts…

What do Britney Spears and Elvis Costello Have in Common?

I was reading the New York Times yesterday, and there was a funny autograph story. It was an interview with two songwriters I love -- Elvis Costello and Carole King, who just collaborated on a new album. At one point, Carole King talked about being forced to tour before her album “Tapestry” was ever released (when it was released, it became the biggest selling album by a…

Abraham Lincoln Item For Sale

I always find it interesting when historic things end up being for sale. The price is always outrageous, but it’s just interesting to think that people saved these items. The two latest ones are strange. The French Quarter antique gallery is asking $795,000 for the binoculars that….Dudley Moore used to spy on Bo Derek in the movie “10.” Okay, okay, I’m joshing. It’s for the binoculars that Abraham Lincoln was using at Ford’s Theatre on the night he was…

A Star is Born -- Funniest Autograph Scene in a Movie All Year

I'm sure everyone knows the movie "A Star is Born." This is the 4th remake of it, and it's starring and directed by Bradley Cooper, with Lady Gaga as the female lead.

I just saw a movie screening, and I'll be writing my review for it soon, but...since Cooper plays a famous, alcoholic singer -- you get lots…
