OK GO and Modern Family Autograph Stories

Modern Family is one of the new shows that's actually pretty good.

On tonights episode, one of the kids reads their siblings diary. A fight insues and one sister ruins the other sisters autographed poster of Maya Angelou, which she said she cherished more than anything in the world. She also mentions how long she had to stand in line to get it signed.

We can all feel your pain.

In my latest issue of SPIN MAGAZINE, they did a quick interview with…

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's...a million dollars!

One of the readers here, Bob, emailed me asking if I heard about a Superman comic book that sold for a million bucks.

Having collected basketball cards as a kid, I remember thinking how crazy it was when a Honus Wagner baseball card would sell for that amount. Heck, a Bill Russell rookie card I bought for $45, was once deemed the most valuable basketball card at over a thousand bucks. For some reason, that number dropped significantly years ago.

Any collectable…

Charlie Sheen, Chris Brown...and it's Dom Monaghan that gets violent with autograph collector!

On TMZ Monday night, they showed Charlie Sheen leaving his fathers place in Los Angeles. He signed lots of autographs, and took photos with every fan that wanted one. Nobody asked him about his recent court case, and I'm guessing, he was on his best behavior with the fans as a PR move. But hey -- if more autograph collectors can score this way, cool.

Musician Chris Brown, best known for beating the tar out of Rhianna, was seen leaving a place and taking photos with fans. When…

Leonardo DiCaprio Signs Autographs

On TMZ, a few different times this week, I've seen him signing autographs outside of various clubs and TV shows.

I swear, that show is the best for seeing celebs and what their signing habits are.

The staff of TMZ said he doesn't usually sign, let alone talk, but with Shutter Island coming out tonight, he's doing the smart PR thing.

Trading Memorabilia for a House

About 30 miles north of San Diego, a woman was making national news for placing an ad for a husband. She was in her late 40s and losing her health insurance. A medical condition meant $3,000 in pills each month.

Don't feel too bad for her. She had thousands of proposals and will probably work this all out just fine.

Now comes a guy in San Diego that wants to exchange his baseball cards and other sports memorabilia, for a house. He put on ad on Craigslist, and…

This Song's For You (from Jason Mraz)

One of the most underrated songwriters ever, is named Stew. He used to be in this little indie band out of L.A. called The Negro Problem. The band sounded a little to pyschedlic sometimes, but on his solo records, Stew wrote some of the best songs in music history.

He's living in Berlin now, after the success of his Broadway play Passing Strange (which was filmed by Spike Lee).

Anyway, he used to do something on his website where you could hire him to write and…
