crap claims to fame...
« on: October 10, 2020, 08:58:52 AM »
Saw a coffee table book once entitled shit claims to fame.
e.g. “My cousin was Peter Garrets roommate once”

Figured I’d waste a boring night shift seeing if anyone else has any.
I’ll start…

Once my dad brought me a mountain bike and the salesman told me that the bike before was sold to Michael Parkinson.

I told that story for years thinking it was genuinely interesting.

Go…

I used to work with Michael Beans niece when I was in school. She thought I wouldn't knew who he was. I've seen Aliens soooo many times.
Anyone remember tech deck dudes?

My dad was in a Superbowl halftime show sometime in the 80s as a dancer.

James Taylor used to babysit my dad and uncle. He'd come through town and have dinner with my grandparents.

My sister's dad did some background guitar work on The Chronic. He still gets royalty checks for it. He was also an extra on Family Matters, I have a sick jean jacket from the set.

My uncle was offered a job with the Walt Disney World Orchestra but didn't take it because his gf was pregnant. Turns out it wasn't his baby.

My bands music was used on a show on MTV2.

I've been to Tom Green's house, friends band was a guest on his show and he invited us to his house. Cool dude, hired catering for us.

We've been mentioned/featured in Thrasher a few times.

My grandma (RIP) was seated next to El Chapo on a flight once, yeah, THAT El Chapo. It was years ago, I believe the flight was from Sinaloa to Guadalajara.

I've save the rest for later.

My uncle knows a woman who constantly brags that she once had sex with the wrestler Ken Shamrock.

But don't get me wrong, it's actually pretty lonely being a part of the upper class.

Walked past Kevin Garnett in the stairway at a hotel that let us skate in the underground parking lot.  My friend said “holy shit, that’s Kevin Garnett.
He turned and kind of sneered “no shit, n***a. Don’t be fucking around near my ride.”  He pointed back at a yukon(I think) and while it was funny he was not kidding.

My dad dated Mike Smith’s mom for a time when I was 12-13 (I have an old dad) and Mike Smith used to send me little packages with Web Trucks and Liberty Skateboards shit in them so I rode some really weird completes in my early teen years. Saw him a few years later and he had no idea who I was.

Also Paz de la Huerta is my 2nd cousin and I’ve never met her.

I had to ask Biff from Back to the Future to stand up so I could take a piss at a movie screening in LA.

My mom still brags sometimes about dancing with Frank Stallone once at some south Philly nightclub in the 80s.

Like a decade ago I used to sell pot to Tony Montgomery's cousin who was a local rapper. Also once to the guitarist for Marcy Playground when he first moved to the Rittenhouse area.

My friends dad, was friends with Jimmy Dean, said he was an asshole.

Skated with Gilbert throughout middle school.

Had the Ninja Turtles come to my 6th birthday party!

My moleman avatar appeared on the nine club highlighting a question for brink, his answer made them so mad.

Opened up for Dan Briggs of Between the Buried and Me and Trioscapes.

Had the band Health, wear my shirts in front of a few thousand Brazilians.

Asked my favorite baseball player why he likes camo so much. He responded live on air with my name and said camo just looks good on his skin.

Gave Kyle Walker a tall boy of PBR when real team was doing a demo.

My LeBaron was owned by Jon Voight.

Roger Bagley sold me my back-to-school shoes, t-shirts, decks, etc. year after year. My mother referred to him as “that nice boy at the skateshop”.

Feel free to elaborate...

Was working at a health food store in jersey when I was about 19/20 and worked with this dude Tom. To catch a predator did a double New Jersey special and  the end of the first one had a preview for the next weeks episode. Showed my co worker for a brief second and I was like holy shit I think that’s tom. Told only a couple of people at work just in case it wasn’t him. Low and behold the next week rolled around and there was Tom trying to court a child. A bunch of people ended up watching it at work and he lost his job. Could probably still find the clip on YouTube too.

Devendra Banhardt bought a bag of mushrooms off me in 1999. Pretty sure it was his first trip and pretty sure he had a good time.

I saw Jack Nicholson one night in Vegas (it was around 3am and he was walking through the casino with his sunglasses on).

A girl from my computer class in HS, who I had a huge crush on, had some of her art in some exhibition the Louvre (she came from tons of NYC money, so that helped her get noticed).

A girl from my middle school was a Levi's model.

I sat next to Danny Way's girlfriend at the premier of his mega ramp footage (she was texting throughout the whole thing).

Dwayne Peters gave the manager of my shop a fist bump at ASR (also, fuck Dwayne Peters).

I was in the elevator with Dana White (the UFC asshat who inspired Dyrdek to start SLS) at JFK.

My ex girlfriend's uncle won a few million in the lotto.
