Ty Burrell


"Good afternoon, CelebriGum, Steve speaking, can I help you?"

"Hi Steve, this is Ty Burrell.  Do you have a moment to chat?"

"Not really.  I'm busy taking pictures.  I just got you getting out of the car with the phone up to your ear.  What do you need, Ty?"

"I know it's awfully short notice, but I'd love a slightly blurry, grainy shot of me crossing behind the town car to step onto the sidewalk, in addition to the standard shot of posing by the door for the paparazzi.  Is there any way...?"

"I'll see what I can do, Ty.  Gotta go."



CelebriGum comes through in the clutch!  You're welcome, Ty!

From now on, don't call me when I'm working.

    How did you ever transcribe, and photograph at the same time? I tell you how, MAGIC!

    1. I wrote down what I recalled shortly afterward, then checked it against what Ty remembered of the conversation. Between the two of us, I think we got it pretty darn close.

      That explains it. By the way, nice job getting a cone in each photo.

    He's called "the late" Jim Croce because he's never on Ty...

    2. Why not just come back in a cab, like everyone else?

  4. Am incredibly grateful to be a part of something so very special, actor Rodney Hicks posted on Instagram. Honour is in the telling itself. Art heals. One day a young woman came to my office to tell me she wouldn't be able to complete all the course requirements. It turned out her husband had been killed in a car accident the month before. She was a 19 year old widow..

    The past eight years as your leader, I was committed to fostering a workplace culture that was inclusive, welcoming and rooted in integrity and respect, Schultz wrote in a letter to the board of directors that Harvard Pilgrim released. Made mistakes, and I truly sorry. Colleagues in Oakley Sunglasses Sale UK local health care Ray Ban Sunglasses Sale UK circles expressed shock at his Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos resignation..

    The poison behind the resistance Longchamp Soldes Destockage movement is Sac Longchamp Solde the lie that Trump was an illegitimate candidate, and Michael Kors Purses Clearance is now an illegitimate president. When prominent figures such as Clinton, Rep. Maxine Waters and former CIA boss John Brennan say or insinuate that Trump is a thief who stole the election, or when celebrities muse about assassinating the president or kidnapping his youngest son, it's inevitable that some on the left will view their own actions as morally justified.
