Some fame shows up at SFGAm.

Not really newsworthy and a short article. Michael Jackson's kids visit the park.

I can't resist saying this. But, did they have a special blanket for Blanket? I think if it wasn't for the media following their every move, they could have walked into the park and enjoyed themselves, and nobody would have even known they were there.

I was once sitting next to an actress that was in the movie Pleasantville at a flim festival in Michigan, and I had no idea she was a movie star, until she went up and sat on the stage. I also met an actor who was on 3rd rock from the sun, and another who was a regular on the Buffy the Vampire series. They were also supposed to have the guy from American Pie, but he cancelled, and we had the kid from Dumb and Dummerer instead. The kid who played the Jim Carey role in the Seaqual. Oh and Robert Vaughn.

You didn't recognize the girl from Pleasantville because you, like the rest of America, didn't see that movie.

Which is too bad because it was highly underrated. Still a good film.

Those Michigan film festivals, now that's where you can expect the glitterati to turn up! Sadly, none of them seem to have names. Oh except Robert Vaughn.

I didn't think it was too bad, and I really thought it was going to do better than it did, based on the previews alone, but what do I know?

What's a Seaqual? Is that anything like a sequel?

And I, too, liked Pleasantville.

I think it's a sea-faring bird.

Ah, yes, the legendary Sea-Qual. Hardier than all other ocean-going birds, these mighty, winged seafarers are known to accompany sailing ships over entire voyages, preferring to roost on the tallest mast. You know, mid-timbers.

I've also read that they have been known to hold steadfast through extreme varying weather conditions.

And they meet lots of "pseudo-celebrities!" They drop names instead of poop.

And who could ever forget the 1980s one-hit-wonder band, A Flock of Seaquals. I think T-R was friends with the lead singer, Jerry.

I hate to admit I actually SAW A Flock Of Seagulls in concert..Opening for the Go-Go's at Madison Square Garden. But they were so awful, I just ran...I ran so far away.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 12:37 PM

But could you get away?

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 1:09 PM

No..and I ran all night and day. Didn't work.

The Sea-qual is just flying around your heads waiting to give you the bird. At any rate, there have been some big celebrities at the Water front Film fetsival, i am just not as good with the actors names. Sorry.

Tony Hawk winked at me while I buckled his son's seat belt on Pteranodon Flyers when I worked at IOA.

And my old band opened up for Skid Row's Sebastian Bach in State College PA.

And a good friend of mine is the regularly employed sound guy for N-Sync.

And I am pretty famous, now that I think about it. But not as famous as Gonch. ;)

Come to think about it, there are a lot of people here who could pass as a pseudo-celebrity.
