Autograph Talk -- with David J and Seth Myers

Two autograph things in the media recently that I thought I’d share. In the Union-Tribune in San Diego, they did an interview with Goth, alt-rocker David J (from the bands Bauhaus and Love & Rockets). His real name is David John Haskins, but he goes by his stage name. And he’s…

KISS Kronikles -- The Paul Stanley Edition

I’ve got some bad news, folks. I’ve been saying this for the last 8 years but…autographs are going to be harder and harder to get. It’s a mix of so many things.

What Would You Rather Have in Your Collection -- Willie Nelson's Armadillo or Hitler's Uniform?

I was all prepared to write the latest blog on this guy here in San Diego (well, Solana Beach) that keeps popping up in the news. Last time, it was for selling Hitler’s desk. This time it’s Hitler’s uniform (shirt, hat, medals), as well as stationery and other items. He bought these from a Long Beach collector for $1 million, and hopes to make over $3.5 million. You can go to HistoryHunter.com if you’re interested.

I decided not to write a big piece on that, because I did the story…
