    I saw Peter Hook at Manchester airport and regularly talk to members of The Doves at my local Tesco.
     
  10. I know and am friends with the band Minus Chad :eek:
    You've never heard of them?!
    :p I guess its because they are a local band aren't famous. (yet! They are all good musicians and fun people. Though I haven't seen half of them for a few months, though I think I will at the end of Jan. A friend is having a party that they will probably go to.)
    also I have seen Kittie play live and shaken hands with their new bassist (sadly I have never seen Talena in person:( )


    so maybe thats not as big as having a 2nd cousin that I don't know being one of the people on one of the surviors. But we can't all know someone famous:p
     
  11. This one time, at band camp..... my ex was a basplayer and really did it. sorry u can get rid of this if u want.

    The guitarist in my band used to work in the parts department of Van's Chevorlet dealership in the Dallas area. Preceding his brief stardom, this same job was held by a boy we know as Vanilla Ice.

    I'm sure everyone knows the Roe vs. Wade decision?

    Henry Wade, the DA in the case, is a very distant cousin of my family.

    Dusty Hill is a distant cousin of my wife.
     
  17. My uncle was an All American golfer at USC for 3 years, and played in many PGA events in the 70's. Then he died of cancer at the age of 25.

    Remember this name, Alex Jordan. He's my cousin, is 6'5 and only 16. He throws a 94 MPH fastball and has only been pitching for a year.
     
  18. i saw alanis morisette at dairy queen once. they gave her a chocolate sundae instead of strawberry. my brother, being very ballsy (hes a football player and doesn't seem to fear much) handed her a spoon and said "hows that for ironic, bitch"... i was quite embarrassed... i dont even know why he said it... i think it's got to do with the whole arguement about how the crap in her song isn't actually ironic, but it's ironic how a song titled ironic isn't actually ironic. ironic ironic ironic.

    I saw Bill Murray at a Cubs/Cardinals game in St. Louis.
    I also shook Bob Dole's hand (the injured one).

    None of my relatives are famous, but I have some royalty in my ancestry. A couple kings of England and such. You can trace a direct line from me to Rollo, the first Duke of Normandy in the year 854. Kind of interesting.
     
  20. I just touched the Stanley Cup the other day......

    :eek: :) :)



    I have past mafia connections....lol.....


    And those guys that were poaching bears and taking the paws and Gall bladders then selling them to the chinese, one of them was my 2nd cousin.


    THAT IS REALLY NOT SOMETHING YOU WANT TO BE PROUD OF :( You seem like a good guy, and I am not pinning this on you IN THE LEAST, but that IMO is just a despicable act. I am 99.999999% that you would never step that low, so it's all good.
