    Actually, he is a real prick in my experience, and any money he has left is his wife's, whom he treats like shit.


    My meeting with him was strictly business related. He was polite in that regard. I cannot speak for his romantic relationships or social skills.

    If he wasn't good to his wife, etc... then shame on him.

    I met Joan Baez at the inauguration. Friends-of-friends all hoofing it together sort of thing. Lots of people were introducing themselves with lines like "It's so nice to meet you," etc. They were fans I suppose. I just reached across the table and said "Hi I'm Bob," and shook hands with her and another woman (not famous) who she was with. For starters, I'm not a fan of her musci, but mostly I thought I'd sound like an idiot gushing. Either way it didn't phase her. She gave my wife some gum and shared her fruit salad with me.

    Today I was down near the Equinox in Soho... and I saw that guy who was on Project Runway named Christian Siriano. The guy with the glasses who won season 4 and always said everything was "fierce".

    Ugh. She was my next door neighbor for a few years when I was growing up. Major pain in the ass. Glad she was nice to you.

    Did she keep Young Master Matthew awake at night? Those hippie parties must have been wild.

    Did you slap him upside his annoying little head? And if not, why not?

    Johny Knoxville and TV crew were drinking at The Roost in Atwater village, Los Angeles last night. I was expecting some mad antics but they were all very civilized.

    interesting because my friends and I were drinking at a bar in Miami and Johnny Knoxville and all them were there as well. The crazy one was Steve-o, he was running around the whole bar making noise. Knoxville just gave us the smiling nod as we identified him.

    I have a friend that was a teammate of Gene Simmons. He has a team picture with Gene. They were on the same junior high basketball team in Queens.
