Fave Five Friday – Celebrity Photo Opps

August 14, 2009

I’ve never been a fan of autographs. It’s too easy to forge, and, unless you can verify it and possibly even sell it for a premium, to me, it’s worthless. Celebrities are humans too. Some piece of paper with their chicken scratch on it doesn’t hold much weight. That’s just me.

But, as girly/kiddie as it sounds, what really gets me charged is getting a photo with said celeb. I value this the most because it has significance to me and me alone. I don’t care if it’s worthless to anyone else and ruined cause my ugly mug is in the photo, it’s just good kine fun and proof – in that particular moment in time – that I was there and actually met somebody I could tell a story about.

This past weekend in Philly, I had a blasty blast. Not only did I get that interview with Bruddah Shane, I was also able to sneak in some photo opps with “stars” from the MMA world, thanks to our awesome seats at UFC 101 the night before! Peeps like:

Which led me to this week’s Fave Five question. Which 5 celebs would you most like to have a photo with? If photos ain’t your bag, you can use autographs for your list.

  1. Flavor Flav – OMG! He’s so flamboyant and out there! This would be the funnest photo, like EVER! LOL!
  2. Mr. T – see above! Seems like a nice, humble guy too.
  3. Kimbo Slice – he’s crazy intense, but seems like a cool, mellow cat, outside the ring. I give him mad props for starting from scratch in the coming season of the Ultimate Fighter!
  4. Michael Jordan/Tiger Woods – gods in their respective games, though I’m not sure how good/genuine their personalities would be.
  5. Hugh Hefner – no words necessary! LOL!

I’m sure I’m missing a lot more, so lemme hear it. Send over your list of celebs you’d like to get a pic with/meet/get an autograph from.

Some celebs I forgot to mention were those that would bring the most cashola to my pocket (when sold to the tabloids). *grin* Maybe a scandalous shot with Jon or Kate, or both? Or Brangelina? Or even the Octo-mom? Is she even relevant anymore? 😛

Anyway, I digress. Have fun with this list on your T.G.I. Friday y’all!

Happy VHO7V Friday and have an awesome weekend k? Shoots!

(Editor’s note: Don’t get me wrong. I ain’t no celebrity stalker/groupie type, as the pictures above may make it seem. LOL! If I had to stand in line and wait a couple hours for one photo, I wouldn’t do it. These just so happen to fall into place a-ight? 😛 )

Fave Five Friday – Peeps (Desert Island edition)

February 27, 2009

A-ight gang, unless you can think of anything else, I think we’ve exhausted all our options for da Desert Island. We’ve brought along enough DVDs, CDs, Books, and Valued Possessions to cover half the island. And, thankfully, we’re stranded with each other, so, in case we’re short on any one item, we’ve got each other’s back. Teamwork baby!

Next week (starting this Sunday actually), I’m thinking of starting a new “_____ Friday” game. Oh, it’s gonna be a doozy. Be sure to pick up this Sunday’s Advertiser, get scared by my picture on the left hand column, and then log into this hurr blog to find out what it is yo!

Until then, let’s get back to Desert Island for one final hurrah. “Peeps” is the topic of choice this week and the limit is 5. Peeps, meaning people… dead or alive, famous or not. Remember, these are people you’d want to spend the last 100 75 50 years of your life (some of us are old) on a desolate island in the middle of nowhere. OKGO!

  1. Wifey – [insert obligatory “awwwwww” here] Honestly, if I nevah put this, you guys (and she) would’ve scolded me! But seriously, the island won’t be the same without her. Awwwww. 🙂
  2. MacGyver – Oh yeah! I’m a genius (again!)! We’d be off the island in like half an hour after he fashions a boat for us from leaves and rubble.
  3. BJ Penn – bruddah can teach me all of his sick moves every day, all day. Plus, he would kick anybody’s gluteus maximus who tries to step to us… unless he/she/it was covered in Vaseline! 8)
  4. All you WWE readers – [insert another awwwwww here]. 😛
  5. That genie from last week – If any of the above fail me, I’ll have three more wishes to choose from, though I’d only need one: get off the !$%^ island! 🙂

Talk to me!
* Who you goin’ bring?
* If you have any suggestions for future Desert Island items/topics, post um below!
* Got a guess to what the new “_____ Friday” is gonna be? Holla!
* You goin’ support the papah and pick up this Sunday’s edition? Bonus: get me! 😛

Have a happy Aloha Friday (and weekend) y’all! Shoots!
