Lets see, Lloyd Kaufman, Scott Thompson, Mark Mckinney, Eric Idle, That Mark Turmell guy that created NBA Jam, Many people from punk bands I like, Mr. T Experience, Reel Big Fish, Blink 182 (they played South Dakota when they were still small, probably wouldn't be caught dead there now).  

From the wrestling world Haku and Mr. Fuji, about ten years ago, probably more, there was a wrestling thing at the state fair in South Dakota, and I rode back with my friend after it and we saw wrestlers at this gas station, I remeber mr. fuji having a couple six packs in his hands as he left the gas station

Ay Mr. Fuji "perhaps you won't see tommorrow". One of the great ones who used to throw salt in your eyes I've seen him in Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Haku is also very good never seen him live though.

I must suck I've only met two famous people:  Mike Singletary and Kato Kaelin. I got a foul ball at a white sox game does that count? I also went to the Western Open and got yelled at by Justin Leonard's caddy.I have a friend who played basketball against Corey Maggette in high school.

When I was in first grade, my little league coach was a saxophone player for Billy joel, though I didn't know it at the time.  There was also a guy on my quiz bowl team whose cousin was in The Indian In the Cupbord movie, somebody Malothra.  A good friend of mine is dating the daughter of Diane Carrey, the Star Trek writer.  And I went to high school with another young murderer, John Espie, but I suppose that's not much to be proud of.  That's about it, not much happens in my town.

I live in Chicago and about 6 years ago Sandra Bullick (the chick from "Speed") was filming "While You Were Sleeping" in the loop. I was having lunch with a couple of friends and notice that filming was going on. I saw Sandra and ran into a Radio Shack and bought a "one time use" camera. I asked Sandra if I could get a picture, she said no, then her body guards moved in to get me out of the way. I was p**sed, but after thinking about, she must get 1000 a***oles a day asking for a picture. That number may be down to 100 in the recent years....

Other than that, I work for AT&T Broadband and the guy from the Sopranos, Fureo - the guy who came over from Italy - stopped into the corporate office. He was cool, and he allowed pictures to be taken!

I met Larry Linville (Frank Burns on M*A*S*H).  I was in a high school Shakespeare acting competition, and he judged my scene.  He was pretty cool.  I even got his signature on the judging form (then I lost it--being a teenager sucks).

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
