I Met Celebrities

Degrassi: TNG DVD Signing

So I told you last week that I might be meeting some famous people well I did….

Just who might you ask?

None other then Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Stacie Farber, AND JAKE EPSTEIN…

For those of you who don’t know Stacie and Jake are from Degrassi: The Next Generation and are two of the coolest characters on the show and it was an honor to meet them both.

Streets of Red Bank
As you can see it was a pretty crowded event, supposedly over 500 people showed up. Crystal and I waited 5 hours to meet them all…

It was worth it however. Why you ask? Well I had extended moments with Jake Epstein and Kevin Smith. Here is a recap of what went down:
I come up to Jake, ask him to sign me DVD and then I tell him I’m a big fan of the show and I hope that he keeps up the good work. We at this point shook hands and he thanked me for his support and for waiting as long as we did. We then had some idle chit-chat about the conditions outside during the wait. Nothing too significant but cool none the less. Kevin Smith and I however had a more impressive moment. I walk up to Kevin and ask him to sign my DVD to which he does and asks me about the wait outside. I then whip out this Catholic flyer this guy was handing out to people on the line. The flyer had the classic line, “If you are not Catholic You ARE GOING TO HELL!” This guy was a member of the sect of the Catholic Church which I refer to as, Hardline Catholics, really they’re called Tradionalist Catholics (for info Click HERE). Anyway for those of you who know anything Kevin Smith himself is a Catholic and some problems with the Catholic Church when he made Dogma. So upon seeing this flyer he checks it out and we had a brief discussion about it. I then say to him, “I’d like you to have this has a souvenier so that you can remember this day.” Kevin laughed and gave me a up high-handshake and said, “Hey man I really appreciate you coming out and I can’t thank you enough for waiting as long as you did.” We probably spoke for about 2 or 3 minutes and he was really cool and you could tell he’s very appreciative of his fans. All in all it was a great experience…

Then to top it all off my Mom calls me the next morning to tell me that Crystal and I have our pictures in the paper:
Crystal & I in the APP for the Degrassi DVD Signing
See if you can find us. Click the picture for a bigger version and the Answer.

Crystal took pictures but didn’t get them developed yet. Thats why it took so long to post because I was waiting for her to develop them and she didn’t…

If there are any good ones I’ll post them in the future…

School is almost over and I am sick of it. I have a 10 page paper to write, economics questions, & an economics final to study for…

Ugh…

I’ll be back again…Sometime.

Till next time… “Mike Tyson’s punch out Mike Tyson’s Punch out MIKE TYSON…”
