"It's such a fine line between stupid an' clever..." - Spinal Tap
I want to be so famous that ... the guy across the street taking my pictures through a telescopic lense is doing so to sell them to the tabloids, and not just being creapy.Oh, and btw - I'm strongminded and have opinions. Give me solid proof, and I'll change my mind. If you don't have solid proof - endure! ;)
I wanna be so famous that...Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, CA sends me free cases of beer every month.I'm serious.Unk
I want to be so famous that all newspapers, TV shows, and documentries can only refer to me as "The reclusive, unreachable genius was unavailable to comment, or to collect his nobel peace prize for life time achievment in screenwriting"
I wanna be so famous that...I can convince a major broadcaster to commit to a musical cops series, have the whole thing fail and still bamboozle the broadcaster to green light my next project.
...HA!Now we're cooking - keep 'em coming...
I want to be so famous that...I'm mentioned in How to Write Screenplays. Badly.
I want to be so famous that...George Clooney will be selling the pic of (the Madame Toussad) him & me to the tabloids.
I want to be so famous that the tagline for my blog becomes "My dumb blog that, apparently now my millions of adoring fans read."
I want to be so famous that...When I say "Baby, that's the last bagel. I've been saving it for this morning. My only morning at home this week." And my girlfriend actually hands it to me, butters it for me, and rubs my back as I eat it. Instead of saying with her mouth full "Oh...you don't need...another one...you're a lil pudgy...as..mmmm...it is."
I've never wanted the second part of that "rich and famous" thing. I want to be so rich that I can pay famous people to shut up already.
I'd like to be invited to speak at my alma mater...Get a "come over anytime" from Hugh Hefner...
I'm not greedy. I just want to be famous enough that I can get "reality" tv stars bumped from events to make room for my posse.
I wanna drive on the lot without a pass. I want one of those hot Nike Reps to come to my work and ply me with new tennis shoes. I want the patrons at Something Fishy in Malibu to volunteer to buy my dinner. I want an unlisted number that's listed on the internet. I want to have an assistant who tells me the time and carries assortments of gum and mints. I want my assistant to call Steven and tell him I'll be calling him in 10 minutes......this is an amalagam of what i have actually seen over the years.
Great stuff everyone...And Portnoy, I'd say stop goofing with us, but know it has to be true...wow
Will on YOUR site I'll name names!in no particular order these were the famous:Rob Reiner, Billy Crystal, John Hughes, Dustin Hoffman, and Speilberg, It's a thoughtful thread becasue i remember this story Bob Zemekis told us about his kid's teacher (going back to Forrest Gump) didn't believe the kid had a 50 inch tv (or whatever it was) and called the kid a liar. Zemekis had to go to the school and tell the teacher that they did, indeed, have a monster tv that sized, and to stop calling his kid a liar. See what fame does?i changed my profile photo... :)
