I saw Peabo Bryson earlier today walking through the airport in Baltimore. Said hello and got an autograph, and even got him to sing a little bit from "If Ever You're In My Arms Again", haha. A really neat, nice guy.

Saw Jerome Kersey, former Trailblazer at a restaurant in Portland. Eva Longoria on a flight to San Antonio - she is tiny.

Saw Speilberg last week at Pastis moments after running into one of the guys from Grey's Anatomy who I met the week before in LA. Sat a few seats away from Hamish Bowles last night at the theatre. Harvey Fierstein was a few rows over and Laura Linney a few rows past him. lefty

Nice one! I was in line behind Whoopi G. at Faicco's pork store a couple of years ago. Conversely, about six years ago Morley Safer and the new guy (Steve Croft?) stood behind me on the Hallo Berlin cart line outside the University Club....

He's more known as that dude who sings duets. Some of his damage was "Tonight I Celebrate My Love" with Roberta Flack, "By The Time This Night Is Over" with Kenny G, "Lovers After All" with Melissa Manchester, "Beauty & The Beast" with Celine Dion, "A Whole New World" from Aladdin with Regina Belle, plus his solo hit "If Ever You're In My Arms Again."

This sounds like the type of performer that for some reason, is very popular in Asia. For example, Richard Clayderman, the pianist.

Love Peabo, the best duet singer of all time!

I'm deeply disturbed that JetBlast picked this guy out of a crowd.

Richard Clayderman is NOT popular here. But yeah, cheese acts have a market here: Peabo, Celine... even Debbie Gibson, America, England Dan/John Ford Coley, Bread.... if you got a sappy cheesy song, you've got it made in Asia.

He seems exceptionally popular in other Asian nations. The most amusing are those bad instrumental Asian cover versions of an already doubtful song.

Second celebrity encounter today... almost as lackluster as my only other one (mentioned earlier... living in the same dorm as the "My Girl" girl).

Anyway, Don "the Dragon" Wilson came and taught my fitness kickboxing class today... he's actually a very nice guy. I wanted to ask him what I had to do to get a great nickname like "the Dragon." You know, something like, "Rattlesnake," or "Cobra."
