The day before Alec's appearance, I was contacted by a Late Show producer who told me that Alec had read the New York Times piece about CelebriGum and wanted to get a copy of the photo of himself, Dave, and Joe Namath.
How thrilling that one of my subjects was charmed by CelebriGum and wanted a photo! I printed out a nice 8 x 10 and passed it along.
So when he arrived, I wondered: would he look up?
I'm sure it's not because CelebriGum slipped his mind. It's because Alec is firmly in the camp of "to demonstrate awareness of the CelebriGum process would be to destroy its delicate artistic equilibrium," to quote myself as I typed just now.
It's a solid philosophical stance, Alec, and I respect you for it.
Ahh the Celebrigum subject, photographed in its pristine setting, unfettered by the machinations of "civilization". Beautiful.ReplyDelete
I think you mean "Beautiful."Delete
I assume that's Alec with his now fiancee, Hilaria, when he would still allow photographers, from all directions and vantage points, to snap away. But as we know, since announcing his engagement, things have changed, as his rants against the NYDN have shown. So be careful, CelebriGum, that dog can have a nasty bark[but hopefully, not an equally nasty bite].ReplyDelete
I believe this was taken pre-engagement. I hope I'm grandfathered in.Delete
I understand this was pre-engagement, but just saying, now the guy's quite touchy about invading their privacy. You never know when the celebrity type will turn on you. ;)Delete
You're only grandfathered in if Alec's fiancé is your daughter, and she has a baby.Delete
You missed your opportunity, you should have yelled for Alec to turn off his computer.ReplyDelete
Did you charge him for the limited print? I'm sure some day in the very distant future on Pawn Stars we'll see someone bring in the signed Alec, Dave, and Joe Namath photo. That day will be a proud day for all us in the CelebriGum World.ReplyDelete
