The Donald Trump Autograph Meme

First, let me state something. I DO NOT want this website to become a place where people fight regarding politics. Second, as much of a doofus as I think Donald Trump is, I find it disgusting when people compare him to a Hitler, Nazis, or the KKK. But...that being said...this meme is still funny…

Comic-Con Autographs -- The Walking Dead & Jamie Lee Curtis Edition

I haven’t gone to Comic-Con the last few years, but I always try to find good autograph stories from friends that have attended. Nancy Gutierrez told me a great story about being able to get into an autograph signing with the cast of “The Walking Dead”. Since I’ve heard so…

William Shatner Says No to Autographs and -- GET A LIFE!

Most of us remember the Saturday Night Live bit that had William Shatner at a Star Trek convention. He’s answering bizarre, detailed questions about the show that he’d have no way of possibly knowing the answer to. They were such detailed things about a specific aspect of a certain episode, he finally, in exasperation, shouts “Get a life!”…

Who is America...and Who Signed a Torture Device?

I was bummed when Sacha Baron Cohen dropped out of the Queen movie. He looks more like Freddie Mercury than Rami Malek, and I think he’s a better actor.

Cohen is probably best known to people for the character Borat he played, in a…

Selfies vs Autographs -- A Story on the Selfie King

Everywhere I’ve ever lived, my places have pens in every room, and piles of magazines. The reason is this. As a writer and journalist, I sometimes have an idea and I’m in one room, and wish I had a pen nearby. Or, you may be on the phone and somebody says something you need to write…

Tab Hunter Death -- and when his manager yelled at me

Tab Hunter died just a few days shy of his 87th birthday. I didn’t really want to write a blog about him, for a few reasons. First, anybody under the age of 55 probably doesn’t know who he is. Second, my interaction with him didn’t go so well.

In 1955 he starred in “Battle Cry” and the following year it was “The Burning Hills.” He found bigger success in the 1958 music “Damn Yankees.” He also had a hit single in…

Quick Question About Auctions

Aside from the "is it real?" questions we have about some auctions, I have a different question. Does it make it even worth buying the item if there's a high price to pay in addition to what the item ends up costing you? For example, I LOVE the items RR Auctions gets. Years ago, I purchased so many things from them. But that 22% premium you pay on top of it, is a bit high, don't you think? If I buy an item for $500...that means I'm paying over $100 in edition to that, and then more money on…

Autographs I Didn't Get, But Could Have

I thought I’d write a blog about autographs I didn’t get. What I mean by that is, people I could’ve gotten, but just didn’t want to. Now, I’ve had my share of ones I didn’t get because I dropped the ball. Three musicians come to mind.…
