Mindy Kaling, and an Important Announcement

Changes to the CelebriGum Constitution are quite rare.  The by-laws state that a unanimous vote by the Board of Directors is required to ratify any amendment, no matter how minor.

However, after extensive debate, the CelebriGum organization has formally acknowledged a slight paradigm shift, as sharp-eyed readers will note in the explanatory blurb at the top of the page.

At first, I only took pictures of celebrities coming in.  Now, due to ever-more-intense professional demands during the hour before showtime, I don't spend as much time by the window, and I miss many arrivals. 

So I've been taking more photos of celebrities as they leave.  It can be tricky, since there's usually no warning of when the stage door will open, unlike an arrival when I see the black celebmobile pulling up.  

But I'm not complaining.  I got Mindy Kaling's right arm, left hand, left leg, right knee, and best of all, about 63% of her face, give or take.  I often don't do that well with celebrities on their way in.

Every cloud has a dull gray, sooty lining.


  1. I didn't sign up to see celebrities LEAVING a building. You just lost yourself a reader, board of directors!

    You photograph them gumming and coing... I just flipped my wig!

  3. Seth, I understand, and I apologize.

    I'll make sure you receive a full refund of your CelebriGum membership fee. I'll just need your credit card information, date of birth, and Social Security number.

  4. that beard on Mandy is impressive

  5. Is that a step down onto the sidewalk from that exit? I don't think that meets the Uniform Building Code.

    That's why the cops are there, Karl...
