    My legs were on treasure hunt (as Anneka Rice ran out in front of my bike, the stupid cow!)

    And I've given Dannii Minogue a Makeover.

    I attended the same jazz concert as Jim Jarmusch.

    Alright, I didn't talk to him or anything, but beat that for coolness. ;-)

    i pulled the piss out of Tom Cruise in a bar in Kerry in Southern Ireland.

    and regreted being a smartass to him and apologised to him afterwards because he is a really cool and laid back midget... i mean guy.

    and i had a pint with Bill Murray in Kilkenny. funny guy, but was going through a very rough patch in his career.
    i was grossed out by his skin though....

    how could i forget the big one!

    one of irelands premier waterparks plays the safety video i made for them over and over and over and over and over and over.....

    - My Dad was best mates at Uni with the white-haired professor bloke from Time Team

    - I saw Dannii Minogue in the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens once

    - I went to the Lancashire cricket centre of excellence with my mate Andy Flintoff. I lasted a week, he went further

    - I almost got hit in the face by a Gary Flitcroft free kick at Ewood Park

    ...erm...I'll think of more tonight and get back to you. Hometime!

    I was in the same editing room as Dr. Alban when he watched a cut of one of his most horrible videos ever. Embarassing, yes. My only pride and the reason I can mention this in the first place is that I didn't have anything to do with that video at all.

    I had a mad aunt who claimed to have shagged Brian Ferry. Or maybe it was Midge Ure, I can't remember.
    Whatever, whoever it was he was shite.

    Or dynamite, I can't remember.

    Good replies ! Especially interested in Peej's Danni Minogue facial. Sorry - makeover.

    Paul Weller once opened a door for me.
    At school, one of my teachers' great uncles was Howard Carter who discovered Tutankhamun's tomb
    And my dad sang the Pearl and Dean theme.

    I stood near(a foot) robert de niro in Cafe de Paris while my boss spoke to him. I was stalked by One foot in the grave old bloke(i crossed 3 roads in the same day and he happened to be crossing the other way at all 3, freak!). Em... i walked past Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne about 4 times and not once did i get her to sign my 30 or so Saint Etienne singles and albums(she's a squinty eye, you can't approach them). Em... Was going up an escalator as that bint blonde from eastenders and some army program called Dutch Cap was going down the other. Was waiting for a tube and Harry Hill came up in full attire and stood next to me, i stepped away.

    Oh and the best of all, was walking through covent garden once and Professor Heinz Wolffe walked past me and winked at me when he saw me nearly faint at his appearance. He rocks!

    Had beer with Brian Dennehy a couple of years ago in New York. If you don't remember him he was the cop after Sly Stallone in First Blood. A friend of mine used to be an actor and introduced me. My mate is also best friends with joey pantoliano who played the guy with the bad wig in The Sopranos. He also played the bald guy with the goatee that turns bad in The Matrix.

    Joey Pantoliano rocks. Especially in Bound.

    Yeah, and he was recently on Broadway in an unusual version of Frankie & jonny co-starring with Rosie Perez (she played Woody Harlesden's girlfriend in White Men Can't Jump). It was unusual because they performed most of it in the nude. My mate and his wife then went out for dinner with Joey & Rosie.
