Question Famous people?

I'm curious to know if anyone here knows any actors, musicians, athletes etc etc. Famous people in general.





My uncle is good friends with the bands Pennywise and Kottonmouth Kings. He has a few celebrity clients for his web design business......... but I have not met any of them.

That's awesome. I love pennywise.

I on the other hand, am friends with no one famous. In fact, I have many restraining orders against me from famous people

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

This is the closest I've come, and it's not very close :

My sister-in-law's late uncle, Darryl Sambell, discovered and managed John Farnham. He was also quite big in the Australian music scene, management-wise. My s-i-l has all of his memorabillia on the wall of her cafe. Don't know if you guys know who Farnham is, but he was huge here in the 60's and is still going strong.

Like I said, it wasn't very close.




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

Eh, there's nothing all that special about famous people, and I could give a

I'm still annoyed about all the coverage Julia Roberts got when she was knocked up with twins. You'd think she was the first woman ever to get pregnant. Noone was on my porch wanting an interview when I was pregnant. What a bunch of crap!

But I did know Conway Twitty's grandson.

Country star from the 60's and 70's I think. Since you weren't born until like 1995 I'm not surprised you don't know who he is.










I think my uncle is Lee Majors' cousin (Lee Majors was in the show "The Fall Guy").

Isn't one of our own (I won't say who) related to the "Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, Hey Mickey!!" girl?
