What looks best on the shelf in the living room?
A wedding photo? Your collection of salt and pepper shakers?…Continue
I cried BS the first time I heard this on the news two days ago.
A guy was at a garage sale, and paid $40 for "glass slides" that he thought were great photos of Yosemite.
He thought they looked like the work of Ansel Adams, so he hired an attorney to "investigate." That lawyer came back saying the experts claimed they were Adams photos.
Immediately, people were saying these "unreleased photos" would be worth $200 million.
I knew it was…Continue

In the Sunday morning paper (Parade section), they had an interview with Zac Efron.
Now, these are interviews I usually skip. I don't care about these young actors talking about Twilight or High School Musical, or getting slimed on Nickelodian.
But I got done playing racquetball, and it was the only section of the paper I hadn't read. The story was about his top 15 things to do in the summer.
Every time I'm in Las Vegas, I happen to walk by Pete Rose, singing autographs in one of the sports shops in Cesaer's.
There's usually never a crowd (I'm guessing with prices around $50, that's probably why).
Well, he usually also sells his autograph a few doors down from the Hall of Fame museum in Cooperstown, New York, during the induction weekend. This year, he's been absent.
The store he usually works in have been saying that Rose had "prior…Continue
It was fun watching all the hoopla surrounding where LeBron James was going to wind up (Miami Heat, if you've been living on an island).
It was funnier to read a story about an Ohio woman (which is where James is from), named Vaneisha Robinson, who paid $5 at a yard sale for a LeBron James pendant she thought was costume jewelry.
The news media jumped all over this.
The pendant was shaped like a basketball jersey with a few diamonds in it. She had…Continue
I did a story for Autograph Magazine years ago about people getting musicians to sign their body and then having those things tattooed on them.
Well, I was reading a Spin Magazine from a few months back, and it had a story on Steve-O, one of the crazy dudes from Jack Ass.
He ended up on Dancing with the Stars, and also in a mental hospital. This after drug addiction and crazy behavior got his friends worried.
Anyway, the story was a good read, but…Continue
I attended via press pass the very awesome Shore leave conention here in Baltimore, my home town during last weekend , July 9-11 2010. This is a fan run convention and run very well indeed!
I was also able to interview Edward James Olmos, Kevin Sorbo, Torri Higginson, Catherine Hicks, and Dominic Keating! They also singed quite a few autographs for me and I will post those photos here soon!!!
This convention boasts so much goings-on throughout the weekend and…Continue

You heard about this tragic event involving a firefighter on Tuesday, right?
No, he didn't fall of a burning building.
During an Indians/Rangers baseball game, he tried to snag a foul ball and fell over the upper deck railing, and fell 30 feet onto the seats below him (my first question is...when you're at the railing, aren't you aware of how dangerous that can be?)
He injured four fans below him, and broke his ankle and got a skull fracture, but is…Continue
Since there was that blog showing the fake Hitler signed photo, I thought posting this story I saw in the paper the other day, would be interesting.
A prison that held Hitler in 1924 had documented his time behind bars, and sold to an anonymous bidder for $33,400.
It was about 500 documents from Landsberg prison, and found by a man about the possessions of his late father, who had purchased them at a flea market in the 1970s (isn't that always the…Continue
On Friday night, July 2, the Cinefamily Theater on Fairfax in L.A., hosted a screening of the 1971 independant film, "Billy Jack" and the 1967 film "The Born Loosers". In attendance, was writer, director and actors, Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor. Prior to the show, there was an hour long Q&A where so much behind the scenes were discussed by the 79 year old actor and his wife.
Though the discussion session was interesting, and watching both films on the big screen once…Continue

I was watching a Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, and he had a person on that collected grocery store lists. It was actually a hysterical collection, the variety of things people write down on their list of groceries.
He had one list that had all the regular groceries listed, with "pie" written in three times the size. He even had a shoplifters grocery list.
Anyway, young actress Dakota Fanning was the first guest. Somehow, she brought up the only time she's…Continue
A picture is worth a thousand words...a hair is worth thousands of dollars.
I believe it was Napoleon who came up with the phrase (about the picture, not the hair).
A British soldier stationed with Napoleon Bonaparte on St. Helena, had a number of items he passed down to family members, who recently made $100,000 selling them at an auction.
A sketch of Napoleon on his deathbed -- $14,600.
A diary that had many conversations with…Continue
Once again, 2010 is indeed the year of the autograph conventions and autograph signings.

There is a HUGE Star Trek convention in Las Vegas in August; "The Hollywood Show" in Burbank has shows in July and October; "Super Mega Show" in East Fairfield, NJ and Dallas Doomesday Shootout in Toms River, NJ both in July; "Steele City Con" in Monroeville, PA in August; The…Continue
