I know a guy who claims he met Ernest Borgnine at a gas station.

That is all.

Axel Rose, the cast of ALF, if anybody remembers that one.  Hmmm, some guy from Platoon, can't remember his name, had a bit part.  Anthony Perkins, and I think that covers it.  Grew up in LA

Well I am not to sure I should tell this one as you may call me a raciest pig but that is not the intent... Just joking with a friend... and it was fucken funny... IF you where there

I use to work at a place in Anaheim California... Maybe you have heard of it... It's called Disneyland...

A friend of mine I work with, I'll call him Frank, was working in an area where they when doing some filming. Anytime they had a film crew there at the park there was a food tent/line in the area. You could tell by how big of a star was there by the type of food they had... The fancier/nicer the food the bigger the star. This day was on the nicer side of the food scale

They let of take want we wanted from the food line as we where more or less part of the "crew". Anyway Frank and I where at the end of the shift and he was going to take some food home with him. He get this plate and piles on food... I mean it was mound up... WAY UP... We got to the fruit tray... There was watermelon, grapes, pineapple, bananas and what not. Frank was stuffing bananas in his pockets because he had so much on this plate. He then walked past the watermelon... You see Frank is black... I could not resist... I yelled "Hey you forgot some watermelon" from up the way... At this very moment John Schneider (you know the dukes of hazard) walked around the conner. I just about shit a brick house... but then John Schneider said to Frank... "Man he's right you don't have any watermelon. You better put some on your plate" We all laughed even though I was about to shit.

I saw the realtree guys with their camo cameras at an airport in Texas once. I talked to Launi Meili('92 olympic gold medalist) at a shooting camp I was at. I won the match at the end so I got to hold her gold medal and talked with her for a bit. Have met several other shooting medalists over the years as well.

I met Brooke and Hulk Hogan when they came to do an autograph signing at my store.

I met Jet Bush... After Katrina hit florida he did the whole trip around the state to see how people were doing... I bitched that the generators that usually cost 200 bucks were now at 900 dollars and that was bullshit... he laughed... I wanted to kick him in the balls...

I met the lady from the Duffle Bag commercial, you know the one where the two guys hide in the tent after hours so they can check out all the cool stuff... looking back on it she probably got recognized all the time so I shouldn't have said anything; especially since she got pissed off about it for god knows what might've been the millionth time she had to deal with that..

I've met and done work a few times for Sam Atkins, former Seahawk as well as owner of Hawk construction. That and his buddy Dave Wyman too. They both still hand out with Steve Raible, who'll pop in on their jobs and hang out for a bit when he's free.

there are others, like Patrick Stewart, Ricki Lake, and even fucking Gary Locke; but the weirdest was Shifty from Crazytown. Yup, before he was smoking crack on the rooftop of a rehab clinic holding a super big gulp and two hamsters in a cage as seen on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew", I ran into him after a concert in downtown Seattle. He was a cool guy–– barely over 5' tall but built like brick shithouse. Must've been lonely or something because we couldn't get rid of that guy with a jackhammer. -Nice guy though-

When I worked for a moving company, I used to work with Alonzo Mitz (former Seahawk defensive lineman).  Nice guy, never did figure out what the hell he was doing working for a moving company.

If I told them all I would look like a name dropper.

I used to work for a national radio show in L.A., flew down, set up, fixed things, hung out and did the show for weekends. Covered a couple of Oscar partiess at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Everybody was there.

Lots of them were on the show and I quite often got phone calls from "famous people" with tech questions.

Casting director for Harry Potter, and a million other movies, Dom Delouise, Fred Travelena, the list goes on.

I built a bar for Ryan Stiles at his home up in Bellingham.

Here are some pics of a few.

Me with Geargia Durante, Stuntlady and Kodak model from the earlier years

Richard Tyson, Shelley Berman and Matt Allan, I was behind the camera.

Artist Michael Godard and I after a night in Hollywood

My car that was in Tokyo Drift

They're years gone by. I still keep up with some of them but for the most part I think they would have just as soon not met me. Kind of like R32.

Once on a United Airlines flight from EWR-ORD, Jared S. Fogle (of Subway fame) sat in First class in the same airplane as me.

Then-Vice President elect / Senator Joe Biden visited Kirkuk Regional Air Base.  I was sick in quarters that day.

A couple of years ago, my wife & I were walking through Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC.  My wife got semi-excited and whispered to me, "OhmyGodthat'sSarahJessicaParkerandMatthewBro­derickrightthere!"  I of course, had to ask her to repeat that to me in slow and clear English.  When I comprehended, I said, "That's just swell", and kept on walking.  Their son was with them.

Back in 1998, USS Rodney M. Davis (FFG 60) just shifted homeport to Everett from Yokosuka, Japan.  A buddy & I were exploring the area via Everett Transit.  When we got off the bus at the Everett Mall, a NASCAR Craftsman truck got our attention in the Sears parking lot.  The hood was open and some guys were turning wrenches on it.  Bob Keselowski himself gave us those 8" X 10" promotional pictures of the truck.

In December of 2001 I got to escort Peter Meyhew (aka Chewbacca) around Seattle when he was up here for a public appearance.
Wearing Trooper Armor all day sucks! But that night at Poly Esthers were the actual appearence was he bought me a Jack and Coke.

He was a pretty friendly guy so long as you didn't pull the fan boy crap.

One time when I was thinning my collection of replica movie props I got an e-mail from Adam Savage of the "Mythbusters".
He was interested in some replica props that I had from the movie "A.I." as he appearently was on the effects crew.

Met Jon 'Maddog' Hall at LFNW a few years back (he's going to be there again this year BTW), talked to Tim Bray from Sun at OSCON last year –– he's got to be the highest energy person I've ever met. Talks non-stop and you've got to really concentrate to keep up. Nice guy.

I almost met Rush Limbaugh at the rally for John Carlson for Governor, but he split really fast after the show. This was right before the news about his hearing broke so I think he wanted to avoid the crowds. I was pretty disappointing though. Met Carlson and Medved at KVI events.

I've talked to Kirby Wilbur a few times and used to run kirbywilbur.info fan site. I warned him that he needed to register kirbywilbur.com, but it got domain-sqatted before he did anything.

Almost met Martin Short and Nick Nolte –– they were using my boss' place as a base for filming 3 Fugitives, but they had the road blocked so I didn't make it to work that day (I could have waited 30 minutes, but I was 19 and had better things to do).

Almost saw the filming of Goonies. Dad offered to take me and a friend down to Astoria to check it out but we declined (not sure why now, it would have been cool).

My sister used to work hotels in Idaho and Washington and ran into lots of big names. The only ones I remember are Carrie Fisher, who she said was a royal bitch and Ron Howard who was very nice to the staff.

So in other words, I haven't met many. I guess that's what happens when you work from your basement and don't get out much

Mark Allen Shepard

Hilarys Swanks brother, Dan, used to be my direct supervisor for 5 months. Really cool guy actually.

I once masturbated in a really swanky restaurant....oh, wait, wrong thread. Uh, Dixie Lee Ray, Pat O'Day, The Wailers, Robinson Devore, Darren McGavin, Al Pickles, Gary Larson, Charleton Heston, Silverio Cabellon, Dan Evans, J. P. Patches and Gertrude, and, my all time favorite, Moe Howard. I'm related to Froggy, one of the kids from the OUR GANG movies and Tyrone Power, an early proponent of the ghey pirate persona. A great uncle owned the ship used in the movie MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY. I once met his wife, who was a great thrower of Hollywood parties in the 30's. Oh, can't forget my uncle who was on local news one evening, yelling something like, "You'll never take me alive!" He robbed the Dufflebag store in Tacoma, too. My dad crewed with Connie Kalitta back in the 60's. Sorry for blathering on...I'm old, I'm allowed.

Gary Coleman scared me half to death at the San Diego Zoo.

I was in the man-eating deadly poisonous snake exhibit...one of those dark, cave-like tunnel deals with a glass wall.  I was leaning with one arm against the wall..forearm parallel to the ground... peering in at some venomous demon reptiles. Then suddenly something brushes the underside of my arm!! Of course I jump back a few feet and start looking for anti-venom. Turns out it was Gary Colemans afro––-as he was quickly prancing along next to the wall looking at the snakes and went right under my arm––-he must have been running on his toes. I figure he was 10 or 11 at the time. I had seen him and his little entourage about a half hour earlier.

Later that day, he stole my stapler.
(OK––I made that last part up)

I just remembered, I did get to meet and talk to Bob Bogle, the bass player for The Ventures. He was very cool.  Gave me an autographed CD, and played a message on his answering machine for me from Quentin Tarantinos secretary, about them doin' some music for Kill Bill.  So I knew about Kill Bill long before it was ever out.  Kinda cool.

Does PCR count?

Doesn't matter, I've never met him anyways

I did get to hang out with AC/DC back in 01 when I was the grill chef at a restaurant they went to.  Apparently they were really happy with the food and wanted to meet us.  We didn't even know they were there until they asked to see us.  We ended up hanging out for a couple of hours after we closed.  Cool guys.  Definitely know how to party....and from the looks of them, they'd done a LOT.

Met Tiger woods at the Monday after the Masters tourny....along with a couple of other golfers.  

Grew up with former football lineman Terry Tosh as a family friend.  He was over to the house all the time...this was in Minnesota before he went to SF and won a superbowl with that Joe Montania guy.

Bill Yerkes.  He's the guy that pretty much invented solar power.  He built the panels that are still on the lunar rover and lander.

Mel Gibson.  He was in town while they were shooting the Patriot.  Super nice guy.  Had breakfast at the same place I did everyday.  We ended up sitting together at the bar a couple of times....that was the only place you could smoke.  He loves those Marlboro Reds!

Met tons of NASCAR drivers, at autograph sessions, Met Dale Earnhart at DEI in Kanapolis NC, that dude always smiled.

Most interaction was with John Wayne when he was here filming McQ. I was going to UW during the week but on weekends drove one of my dads cabs for pocket money.

Picked him up at the Olympic hotel. and spent the day at Longacers running bets for him. That fucker must have smoked 3 packs of Camel shorts in the 6 hours I was with him. He didn't talk much but boy when he did I listened.

BTW he asked me how much for the day, I told him $150, at the end of the day he gave me $250. He wanted to sit in the front of the cab. I drove out and back using my tip toes. He was a very large man.
