Saw Arnold Schwarzenegger ice skating in Sun Valley in 1991. Magical.

Drinking a beer in Montpellier, FR on Halloween with hair died orange and face painted like Bowie, I ran into Roger Waters. He said, “I believe I’ve met you before.”

Oh, I saw Dan Aykroyd at Hen of the Wood in Burlington. He was at the chef’s table with a group of people and as I was walking past I heard him say “...well the vodka’s not organic”, presumably referring to crystal head vodka.

Walked into local co-op and thought "man, that tall guy with sunglasses on sure does look like Michael Richards". Waited in line behind him while he bought bread and pickles. After he checked out, cashier (who I was friends with) whips out his reciept w/ M Richards on the top and exclaims holy shit that was Kramer.

i also ran into Dunn at a bar here in cleveland not long before he died. he grew up in one of the suburbs and i thinkhis parents still live here so i guess he was in town a lot. i think may even be buried in Medina. anyways it was at a real chill, slightly fancy bar and he seemed very chill; zero shenanigans since i assume he was with friends from home/childhood.

that's really my only encounter out in the world. i met jennifer coolidge briefly at a film fest but idk if that counts since she was like, supposed to be there.

i waited on/bartended for countless celebrities at my last job. still see some at my current job but it's a different vibe

a few memorable stories:

liam gallagher called me a "fucking hipster" for suggesting a glass of wine to drink with his meal

sean penn tipped me $60 to go to a store and buy him cigarettes

bartended an SNL afterparty around this time last year. aziz ansari was the host and questlove djed. didn't leave work til like 8 am but it was a cool party. did several shots with michael che

liv tyler got absolutely wrecked at a private event i was working and then forced me to stay and wait on her and her like 3 friends/baby daddy til like 7 in the morning, vaguely threatening to have me fired when i tried to close them out in the kindest way possible. to this day i consider her my archenemy

not exactly a celebrity but one of the members of mumford and sons got so hammered he pissed in a recycling bin next to all the staff lockers

more recently had shannon woodward from westworld at my bar and we really hit it off, just an overall incredibly nice and cool person, keep wishing she'd come back in again

craziest story i have outside of the bar world was being involved in two separate brawls with asap rocky/asap mob. earlier that week i had been involved in a full on street brawl that occurred in the middle of the day at sxsw with members of bricksquad and mob figaz

gangsta boo from three six mafia gave me the most approving look ever while i was absentmindedly rapping along to "da blow" while setting up for a show at fader fort in 2011 (where the first asap brawl happened). she got all excited and just mouthed "OKAY OKAY!" to me over and over

oh i had a really good celebrity nonsighting when i was scheduled to work a private dinner/party for kanye and some record execs during fashion week 2016. he had just shown his fashion line that day and played the life of pablo for the first time in public, to mediocre response. as some of the execs started trickling in we all got an email that kanye had canceled because he was so angry about how the record had been received. so i ended up leaving after like 2 hours and getting paid $400 to show up for no reason at all. thanks kanye!

Smoked several cigars with Billy Connolly in a lounge he used to frequent in New York. Once we had a real long session and started talking about Willie Nelson and put it on the lounge's stereo. I then proceeded to hold him while he wept profusely, singing along to "blue eyes crying in the rain".

good guy.

My fav celebrity sighting was at SXSW in 2010. I was a performer and was in line to get my badge. Once I got out of line I walked into the lobby when, out of nowhere, Erik Estrada kicked open the lobby door with a small entourage. With a huge smile and almost as if in slow motion, he kissed a baby that was handed to him, high fived a guy, signed an autograph (all while in complete stride) and exited the building within 20 seconds.

About a month after that I stood behind Mike Piazza in an airport security line, then followed him for a little while to make sure he was actually Mike Piazza.

That's not such a great celebrity sighting though, as I'm sure you'll agree.

Patricia Clarkson was a huge jerk to me once at a group gathering because I had a chronic cough (I covered my mouth and sat on the outside of the group to try to mitigate any contamination, though it was all allergy based). After she called me out I got up to leave and Stanly Tucci apologized for her being so nasty. So fuck you, Patricia Clarkson.

When I worked as a cashier at Amoeba Reocrds in SF I was spacing out late at night on a weekend, as it was slow. Someone came up to me and rapped on the counter. I looked up and this dude in a beanie wrap around sunglasses says "hey, Jeremy put something on hold for me." he paused for dramatic effect. "It's under Mr. Santana. Mr. Carlos. Santana." And then he tilted his head down and looked at me with his eyes over the rim of his sunglasses. He had this very non-descript side-kick dude following around him who I guess was a body guard? So I go and get his items from the hold bin with a post-it note on them that sure enough says "Santana" and it is a $200 CD version of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew Sessions, as well as a $300 vinyl version of the same thing. In store they were playing Maggot Brain, so Santana says "hey, man." and gestures for me to lean in with his four fingers "you can't tease the customer when you play music like this; you got to-" and he then put his thumb and pointer finger up to his mouth and mimicked hitting a roach and holding the smoke, "lace it up in here. You knowwhaddamsayin?" And then exhaled. At this his side kick starting cracking up, and saying "very funny, Mr. Santana. That's a good one Mr. Santana. Lace it up! Wow, Mr. Santana" the whole way out the door, while Santana proudly collected his $500 dollars of merch and smugly smiled to himself over his clever joke.

I did a play reading with him and he kept asking me for random-ish things, trying to stump my supplies kit (but didn't). My favorite was when he turned to me mid-reharsal to ask if I had some Tums (I did). At the end of the reading he had the whole company over to his house and so now I can say that Ted Danson has served me wine.

I thanked Werner Herzog for speaking at this university conference thing in Tempe, Arizona in a March or April several years ago. After shaking my hand, he said “it is entirely too hot for fashion in this city” and that was it.
