KISS advertisement

In an Entertainment Weekly I was reading a few days ago, the last page (connected to the actual magazine cover), was a full-page advertisement for M&Ms. It showed the members of the band KISS, but as M&Ms (now, if I was in charge of this ad campaign, I would've made a bunch of M&Ms dangling off of Gene Simmons long tongue...)

I would've also made the stage lights, which spell out KISS in the background, all with yellow M&Ms.

Each member has their stars or… Continue

HBO Hard Knocks- Did he really say that?...Really?

In my 30+ years of autograph collecting I had one of my worst collecting experiences recently. It was not an in-person experience or through-the-mail, it came while watching Episode 4 of HBO’s Hard Knocks. Carson Palmer is the 2002 Heisman trophy winning quarterback from USC and the Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback. HBO spent training camp with the Bengals in Georgetown, Kentucky filming a documentary of the day to day experiences as they happen leading up to the start of the NFL season.… Continue

Jessica Simpson - Her Doggie Died

I write for a newspaper in San Diego (San Diego Reader, if anyone is in town, pick one up).

I did a blog on their website called "Daisy's Pushing Daisies". It had to do with Jessica Simpson, who had a malti-poo (the same dog I have), being dragged off by a coyote. She put flies up asking for the publics help in finding it.

I think I angered some PETA people and dog lovers, when I said that she'll get the dog back as the "poo" part of maltipoo. Because, once the coyote has… Continue

Lonny Frey-- The end of an era... 1910-2009

It's rare in history that you can see the page turn or hear the door close, but that was the case when former baseball player Lonny Frey passed away last week of natural causes at the age of 99 years old. Lonny was a major league second baseman and shortstop from 1933 to 1948, while missing 1944 and 1945 to military service. He was the second-oldest living major league ballplayer and the oldest living New York Yankee. His accomplishments were many and his career was long. He played for the… Continue

What Does Tony Curtis Have in Common w/ Flea?

Well, they're both a bundle of energy. They both lived in L.A.'s the fact that they were both in San Diego recently. And, as my complaint previously regarding Mario Andretti being in town, I didn't know about Flea's appearance. I think he's one of the best bass players in music history, and would've loved to have gotten his autograph.

It was a charity fundraiser in La Jolla, for the Surf Industry Manufacturers' Humanitarian of the Year, which was awarded to Flea,… Continue

Ryan Seacrest -- Autograph Seeker Attacks His Security!

On TMZ tonight, they did a story about Ryan Seacrest doing some kind of benefit at a childrens hospital.

A man asked for his autograph, and he signed.

Later, Seacrest was walking to his car (not sure if he said "Seacrest out" before leaving). The man approached again, and he somehow got between Seacrest and his car. The security with Ryan asked the guy to move and the guy started choking one security member and throwing punches.

The police were called and the… Continue

John Lennon Signature Sells for $12,000

I saw a quick blurt on Showbiz Tonight on CNN yesterday...they said a magazine signed by John Lennon sold for $12,000. That's a bit steep for a Lennon signature, but it is the magazine in which he's quoted as saying The Beatles are more popular than Jesus (for those young folks, after Lennon said this, a lot of protests were staged and burning of Beatles albums took place).

Lennon then held a press conference for the idiots of the world, explaining: I never said we were better than… Continue

The Movie "BIG FAN" and Aaron Eackhart on Tonight Show talks Autographs

I saw a preview of the movie "Big Fan" which stars one of the best stand-up comedians working today -- Patton Oswald. He tones down the funny in this serious role of a sad-sack sports fan.

Since he's a huge fan of the New York Giants, there are a few scenes that talk briefly about autographs. One includes them seeing their favorite player at a gas station (and they follow him to a strip club). One wishes he had a Sharpie. The other suggests they follow him into the bathroom, since… Continue

Jimmy Kimmel Sells Autographed Rod Blagojevich Chair!

Of all the late night shows, Jimmy Kimmel does more bits relating to autographs. And he's at it again.

Last night, he showed a clip of Rod Blagojevich, the disgraced congressman, on a recent interview. Kimmel joked about him "selling his seat" and then he joked that he'd "sell the seat he was sitting on."

Kimmel showed all the other guests who have recently sat on it...Shaq, Mel Gibson, and "four foxes," which included Michael J. Fox and Megan Fox.

Blagojevich… Continue

To Yell Or Not To Yell: How Do You Get A Celeb's Attention?

Imagine that you're standing outside the exit of a theater, waiting for one of your favorite actors to leave. You're hoping to score an autograph from him as he makes his way to the getaway car, but so are the 60 or 70 other people that surround you. You know the actor will sign, but he'll do it as he quickly walks the gauntlet to his vehicle, meaning most people will come away empty-handed.

What's the best way to get that actor to sign your photo? Do you say his name loudly over and… Continue

6-Year-Old Boy Gets Souvenir

Little kids are always after autographs from their favorite baseball players. Heck, even us big kids are.

But a 6-year-old at Comerica Park for the Tigers-Blue Jays game Friday, wanted something else. A baseball. And, usually the kids hang on the rails and ask the players warming up for balls. This kid had a better idea.

The 7th inning had ended, and the Tigers were coming onto the field. The boy jumped onto the field and ran to the pitcher's mount. He lost his baseball… Continue

Stupid Newspapers

I rely on the local papers to give me the scoop on when an author or athlete is doing an autograph signing. And, the Union-Tribune in San Diego, is hit-and-miss.

Yesterday, I was reading the paper that evening, and it said that at Camp Pendleton (the military base 10 miles north of San Diego), that racing legend Mario Andretti would be doing an autograph signing at the opening of a new Firestone auto-care. That started at noon.

He also threw out the first pitch for a… Continue

Danica Patrick...WELCOME TO NASCAR!!! Get your Sharpie ready!!

The news reports are starting to steam up the wires as the story surrounding Indy racing's "It Girl" Danica Patrick and her possible NASCAR future becomes more public. It appears that Danica is going to follow in the footsteps of another Indy racing great and now NASCAR legend ( and current 2009 Sprint Cup Points leader ) Tony Stewart. Tony paved his path to NASCAR fame by taking a very slow and methodical approach to entering the sport that has humbled so many of Indy racing's "Top Stars".… Continue

Ingmar Bergman Auction

There's an auction happening in Stockholm...but in this day and age of computers, you can view the interest pieces of Ingmar Bergman online, and not by flying over there!

Those items include film cameras, a desk, and Golden Globe awards that belonged to the Swedish film legend.

Bukowskis is the auction house, and they have over 330 Bergman items for sale, include some chess pieces that it's speculated were used in the director's 1957 film "The Seventh Seal" and a 60s… Continue

Patrick Stewart talks about X-Men and Captain Picard recently at Dragon-Con

I found this sci-fi tidbit on the web .

Thousands lined up to hear Patrick Stewart speak in the massive Marriott Marquis hotel ballroom at Dragon*Con over the weekend, and according to, this Star Trek: The Next Generation and X-Men star didn't disappoint, revealing his thoughts about possible roles in both franchises.

The bottom line is that a return as Professor Xavier is still possible, but a future for Jean-Luc Picard ... not so much.

Stewart… Continue

15 Minutes of Fame, 15 Weeks of Boxes -- Andy Warhol News.

Andy Warhol had a bunch of cardboard boxes that stored things he collected. I heard there were over 600.

They were opened the other day, and guess what they found? No, no...not a bunch of spoiled Campbell's soups. But, a lot of interesting little items.

One box had $17,000 cash. Another had a naked photo of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that was autographed. Sure, there was some junk. One box had a piece of crusty wedding cake, another had taxi receipts and fan… Continue
