    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I was about three feet from Jason Isbell before his show a few weeks ago. He was outside having a smoke right next to where we parked. I walked over, but by the time I got there he was wrapping up a conversation and about to head inside. I couldn't bring myself to go all fanboy and try to get his attention.

    Also, this isn't really an encounter, but it seems to be the most appropriate spot for it. I recently found out that, according to family lore, my paternal grandfather played steel guitar for Lefty Frizzell, and my father, who is a junior everyone calls "Sonny," was given that moniker due to my family's association with Sonny James. No idea if it's true, but it was corroborated by a second family member, the timing makes sense, and my grandfather was one hell of a steel player.

    About 70% of SF? I'd forgotten myself until you reminded me a while back.

    What tortured definition of the word "plebe" are you using? "Plebe" is entirely appropriate in the context above.

    Staff was going nuts over danny mcbride being in the restaurant. Service sucked the entire night, you're welcome.

    Went to a meeting today at the Lakers' practice facility for a project we're working on and ran into Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchak. Nice guy, seemed pretty laid-back... but my gosh is he tall! Duh, I know... he used to play in the NBA, but it's not everyday I hang out with people who are like 6'10" or something.

    Weird side note... his right pinky finger does a 90 degree departure from his hand kinda like Denzel's but maybe worse. Made for semi-awkward handshake. :embar:

    Hmmm, running into the Laker's GM at the Laker's practice facility...

    Memorable, yes. Unexpected? No. But no one else is unexpectedly encountering, so what the hey...


    I ran into Alec Baldwin & Hilaria outside of the bagel placce a couple of minutes after hearing about Philip Seymour Hoffman's OD

    well it was unexpected for me... there was no plan to meet him and since it's the All-Star break not at all certain he was even there. I've been to the Dodgers facility and not run into Frank McCourt or Ned Colletti; been to Capitol Records and not run into Steve Barnett or Don Was; I've been to the DGA and not run into Steven Spielberg... see the pattern here?

    yes, it was unexpected.

    Alec Baldwin might be the most spotted celeb for SF members.
    Spotted him at the Kailua WholeFoods with what I assume was his family. He looked like a total bum tho :/

    I live on the westside of Los Angeles so I see lots of well-known cats. Off the top of my head, recently: Kate Beckinsale, Dustin Hoffman, Alexandra Paul (flat-chested chick from Baywatch), Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, Al Pacino, James Worthy, Jerry Seinfeld, Reese Witherspoon, Axl Rose, and more that I can't remember.

    If you live in Los Angeles it's not Unexpected encounters.

    I guess I see a fair amount of NHL players... but no one cares about that.



    Many years ago, when I was still living in London, I went shopping at Selfridges with a mate. It was around Christmas, so fairly busy. As we were making our way up the escalators to the 3rd floor (that's the 'urban fashion' one, I think) we saw a fairly unkempt bloke with sunglasses, lim hair and blonde girlfriend in tow. On closer inspection it was ye olde hell-raising couple: Liam Gallagher + Patsy Kensit (mmmm, Patsy...). So far, so predictable, since this was London after all.

    My mate gulped: "It's bloody Liam Gallagher!". I was adamant I wouldn't behave like a slack-jawed yokel: "Yeah yeah, keep calm; let's go." I casually started towards the next escalator, and my mate soon caught up with me. Liam and Patsy were still on the same floor as us, so I was sneaking a look, all crafty like.

    My mate and I made it to the escalator, behaving like we saw rock stars every day and whatnot. I was already thinking, Patsy must have noticed how utterly cool I was; she'd most likely try to get my number. Somehow. Yeah, I was in! While I was rumminating over the prospects of the inevitable sexual adventure awaiting me, disaster!

    Since we were both (or at least I was) concentrating on not looking at Liatsy (catchy, no? oh, OK...) we did not check to see if we were taking the correct escalator. We weren't; we made straight for the wrong way one. Like complete muppets, we both tripped and fell, limbs tangling, bags flying everywhere. Out of the corner of my eyes I saw a look of utter disappointment on Patsy's face.

    She never called.

    If Patsy Kensit was a used car , she would have a few hundreds thousand miles under her bonnet..

    Will you go after Liam Gallagher?
