Woody Allen: Autograph Seekers Are Feebleminded

Started this discussion. Last reply by Snark Aug 25, 2014. 3 Replies

Quote delivered by Colin Firth in Allen's new film, Magic in the Moonlight:“Autographs are for mental defectives.”Pure fiction, perhaps. But I suspect it reflects Woody Allen's underlying view.Continue

It's come to this.  Former Major League ump Al Clark is signing his new book.

Clark did time for selling bogus baseballs with his own COA. (And even had the distinction of being prosecuted by Chris Christie).…

Great Bo Diddley story!

Someone who worked for me saw him at a hotel in Tallahassee...knew I was a fan...and had him sign an envelope for me. No bootleg handy.

Gotta see the legends while they're still around.  I so wish I would have seen Muddy.

And if you're a big boxing fan you gotta make a trip to the IBHOF in Canastota, NY for inductions one June.  There are so many great legends who come out and often relatively few fans.  Marvin Hagler garages a Rolls royce there just so he can ride it in the parade of champions every year.

Probably a big turnout next year when Oscar goes in. This year the biggest names are Virgil Hill and Arturo Gatti. Presumably Micky Ward will induct Gatti. Micky is here every year.

Sidney -- I'm a huge boxing and blues fan as well. HUGE (just responded about some of the blues items in my collection in my blog section where you left a great comment on the Robert Johnson guitar).

Bo Didley yelled at me back stage because I asked him to sign a bootleg CD. How did I know? I bought it at a music store. His wife asked if she could have it, so they could sue. Diddley said "Don't take the mans CD, he paid for it." I said, "No, no...I don't mind. Why don't you just take the sleeve, though." I wish I would've had more items for him to sign, as he was signing guitars for other people backstage. But you want him signing a guitar if it ain't shaped like a cigar box?? Not me!
