The KISS Kronikles -- Ace Frehley Edition

I can take or leave the band Kiss. I have a few of their albums, a few of their CDs, and as a kid always made fun of any of anybody that dressed as one of them on Halloween. That’s why it makes it so much more frustrating when I didn’t get guitarist Ace Frehley’s autograph. You see, as an autograph…

Gerald Ford and Bob Hope - real or fake?

Was poking around in an antique store in Marietta, GA, the other day, and came across these 2 autographs for sale. Wondered what everyone else thought about these.

First, a Gerald Ford signed Sports Illustrated magazine. To me, it looks like a really bad forgery.

Second, I saw this Bob Hope…

Farrah Fawcett Painting by Andy Warhol -- And How This Affects the Relationship with my Kid

I was surprised when I got home from work today, turned on the news, and saw that actor Ryan O’Neal won his long legal battle over ownership of an Andy Warhol portrait of the late Farrah Fawcett.

A Bar Room Brawl -- All for an Autograph

Often times, people tell me how lucky I am that I get to interview movie stars as part of my job as a film critic. Usually I’m just interviewing them over the phone, but it is fun when they do the press junket and you get 15 minutes with them.

One writer talked about being invited to George…

Give Me a Head With Hair (Just not for collecting purposes!)

It’s strange how people get when it comes to collectables.

He apparently gave it to Bill “Mr. Bojangles” Robinson. If I were rich, I’d pay millions for it (it’s…
