Tell us your most insane celebrity encounter.
Bill Murray Hates Me.
One Sunday night I was at Epsteins my local bar. I’ve been there all day drinking margaritas. Bill Murray walked in to the bar around 11pm to watch the football game high lights.
I get so excited and I have to talk to him so I walk up and tell him I’m a huge fan and know all his lines in his movies and SNL skits, and say “Hey we are wild and crazy guys”.
He sighs and says “I wasn’t in that, that was Dan Aykroyd and Steve Martin”
I said in my drunken state “Are you sure?” He says “Yeah, it was 1978 at the SNL studio, where you there?” I said no.
Then there was that awkward silence and he’s staring at me so I try and be cool and lean on the bar stool, I miss the stool and I fall over, the bar stool hits me in the gut and I fall to the ground grunting in pain. He sighs again and says “Kids Today”. The bartender says, ” Oh, that’s no kid!” Bill Murray sighs again and says “Adults Today”
I get up and walk away. Then I feel like a total jerk and like I have to redeem myself and make up to him for all this drunken nonsense. So I walk over again and say I’m usually not like this and I was sorry, he completely ignores me. I bend down trying to pick up my dog and fall over again. He then says to the bartender can some one Pour Rummy into a cab and get him away from me.
Worst day ever.

The striped pair from this season
What’s the most inspiring film that you’ve seen recently?
An Unlikely Weapon, story of Eddie Adams
The absolute best Bad Brains song and why?
I and I survive, best song cuz its about how man should treat one another. Also it’s on a Rasta steez and not one of the hard fast in your face punk songs. I’m way relaxed in my older age.
Tell us one secret about yourself that NO ONE else knows.
Just before bed I love to eat Milk and Cookies, and yes I like to dunk my cookies.
Your thoughts on bicycle shorts?
I never wear them and I think my friends that do are crazy……Reda. Hahaha.
What recent technology do you wish had never been invented?
Digital cameras, even though I use one I think it made it too easy for Slack Jaw people to say they are photographers and takes away from people who still shoot Analog photos.
