Brett Favre. He was in a grocery store as some kind of event. I was a child then, showed him a bug jar I was going to buy. I may have asked him something about insects. He answered he likes butterflies.  I don't remember it as well as my dad remmbers it.

I'm trying to remember if I met anyone else really famous.

Met the musician Philip Glass and the writer Allen Ginsberg in 1991. Spoke to the jazz musician Marion Brown by phone (put that in a poem in the journal entry). Used to write letters a while back just to get responses and heard from a variety of people from Oliver Sacks to the sci fi writer Piers Anthony. And more recently, serious letters about my recovery got responses from the psychiatrist E. Fuller Torrey among others. I've been within speaking distance of Bjork and the lead singer of Sonic Youth at concerts but its uncool to approach famous people who are in the audience. Anyone who has been to a rock concert and gotten to speak to the musicians performing in person, all I can say is consider yourself lucky.

Allen Ginsberg was cool. He was a down to earth kind of guy although its hard to believe. People who met him told me he'd give the time of day to anyone. I showed him a poem of mine and he provided a few corrections on it. It was at a deli near the performance space and I was eating a cornbeef sandwhich. I still have the poem and it has mustard stains on it from the sandwhich so its like a seal of authenticity lol.

Swampy met Ricardo Montalban (Swampy's high school was used for a Fantasy Island episode).

They also filmed an episode of Knot's Landing there, but Swampy didn't meet any of those folks (they were less approachable than the Fantasy Island crew).

When I was around 12 years old I met Yvonne De Carlo who played Lily on the Munsters.  My Dad's friend owned a rent a car place and we ran into her there.  

I met Hulk Hogan and his family (in happier times) in an elevator in a hotel in Orlando.

I went to school (elementary and high school) with Paul Pogue who went on to be a TV producer and who has been on a couple of Canadian reality shows.

Did get asked out when I was 24 by Darryl Sittler's (the hockey player) younger brother.  He thought he was so important having a famous bro.

You asked about Anthony Hopkins, well it was a very brief encounter , I got the feeling it could have been more, he was my kind of man, mysterious....long looks,I like that eerieness in him, he has said,on record, that he is very like the roles he plays, (not a murderer) but he said he would have maybe ended up in Prison if he hadnt gone into movies, he has a darkness,in his character. Someone mentioned Jeff Bridges, lovfely man, Family man , walk in his door and he offers you a glass of wine, great wife , I was next door to him in Santa Monica when we had the big earth quake away back, (date eludes me ) they had a Gas leak after the quake hit , and his house was cordonned off he grabbed his Family and headed off to his Ranch in Montana, didnt see him again although I hear he bought back again later,that quake freaked every one out .Oh goodness guys didnt mean to do a Looong one I could tell you a few good tales maybe another time...........

I didn't actually meet Hulk Hogan, but one time he was in Salt Lake City (back in 1980 something) and I was at a stop light and he was in a limo.  He rolled down the limo window and stuck his tongue out real far and then whistled at me - (it seemed he was drunk).  I was actually embarrassed and ignored him!  LOL!!!1

My uncle sang on stage with the Temptations in Atlantic City.   He was known as Charlie Tuna on the radio in Philadelphia.  He also ended up on stage and sang with Barbara Mandrell.  We have a video of it - it was hilarious!

I've met a couple of Nobel Prize winning scientists.  Alan Graham McDiarmid (now deceased) and Walter Kohn.

thats really neat..what did they win prizes for ??

Utah Im from Mowtown i love the Temptations saw them a few times.
Blank

Both were in chemistry.  

McDiarmid, who passed away in 2007 at age 79 (and was still working on proposals and new science right up until that time!) won the prize in 2000, shared with other researchers, for discovering polymers that could conduct electricity.

Kohn, who is still alive (born in 1923) is a physics professor at USCB.  He developed fundamentals of density functional theory, a quantum mechanical electronic structure method used in chemistry and physics.

My uncle became friends with the guys from the Temptations.  He spent a lot of time in Atlantic City (received a lot of VIP treatment) and so that's how he got to know them.  He sang with them several times.  The video with Barbara Mandrell is great - we lost my uncle to a hit and run driver in Port St. Lucie, Florida several years ago, and it's nice having that video.  We also have pictures of him singing with the Temptations.  They were an awesome group!!!

I was an extra in a movie with Natasha Richardson years  and years ago.  It was called The Handmaids Tale, and my big scene was handing her a cup of water.

The scene was cut.   I'm in the movie for about 1 second, right at the start.

599170_tn?1300977493
wow Peek thats big...have you done any other acting?
Blank
172023_tn?1334675884
Nope.  I happened to be at a mall when they were doing a search for extras, and I thought it sounded like fun.  

It took 3 days of being there all day, sitting around doing absolutely nothing, and being paid about $12/day for that 1 second of being in the movie.  NOT worth it.
