I’ve appeared on court tv a couple times. Let me explain, I was on a jury for teen court. It was a lot of fun. Got to give punk kids community service hours.

When I was 4 I came in 3rd in a city Christmas poetry contest. I won a silver dollar. I wish I could go back to those days.

When I worked at the wing shack, I got a picture put in the paper of me tossing wings. The article was for new resturants in my town, but there was a caption that had my name all over it.

Put me in any shopping mall, anywhere in the world, and I can find my way around instantly. I will not get lost and I will remember exactly where I parked. I’ve always taken pride in that and considered it my personal claim to fame.

Beyond that, I was on Phil Donohue once and got to ask a question, oh and I was part of an audience shot when I saw a taping of Dr. Phil

I’ve done a couple of TV spots, a radio interview, had my picture in a national newspaper (in France), and had several recipes published in books, all for chocolate/pastry related stuff. But that was all many years ago.

The night before his election, Bush Jr. came to the little town of Wilmington, Ohio. I somehow got in the front row, and was on the CBS, ABC, and NBC evening news for about 15 seconds each, chanting, “FOUR MORE YEARS, FOUR MORE YEARS!”.

Oh to be young, and a dumbass.

I went to Colombia a few years back and helped those in need. I think I got just as much help as they did.

chaosrob's avatar

@PupnTaco He was doing a book reading tour of Long, Dark Tea-Time of the Soul and I was in attendance. Sat there making very quiet smartass comments to people I was with while he was trying to start reading, which pissed him off. Followed up by arguing with him over the quality of his autograph, which made him slightly crazy. He almost threw a book at me. Still have the signed copy of Tea-Time, where you can see his handwriting sort of trail out…

I was in a Honda dealership commercial that aired locally during the last episode of Friends.

robhaya's avatar

I appeared in a commercial with Mike Farrell of Mash on PBS when I was in the third grade. I had a quote by me appear in a story in the New York Times when I was in High School. I also was featured in an article for Information Week during the horrible IT job market post 9–11. And I’m also currently featured in the Testimonials section of Bushnell’s Golf website.

I gave a 5-minute speech in HS in front of the entire student body (2,700 people). Many of my classmates still remember it and remind me about it 10 years later. I guess that’s more local-famous than famous-famous.

Not sure if this counts, but for work I’ve been promoting spiritual films. I got to be a part of putting into the world films like “The Celestine Prophecy,” “Conversations with God,” and “Peaceful Warrior.”

Wow. That’s a powerful photo you took there, BronxLens. Stunning.

Don Burrows, a well known Australian Jazz musician was the first person to ever buy a copy one of my films, he paid $5 AUD for it!
Besides that I’ve been on TV a few times, been in the newspaper a few times… who hasn’t these days?
