12/02/05 Mail: UK stamps. Been without heat for a couple weeks here!  The process of getting a new central heat/AC system is horrendous.  Three estimates took a week alone and all were pretty far apart from one another...and then an electrical problem which means I need a whole new rewiring of the house.  Total damage is about 10k for the two.

11/07/05 Rob and Martin items mailed. Mail successes:  Barry McEvoy (Pirates of the Caribbean 2) and Guy Chapman (Pirates of the Caribbean 2). On post on a board today irked me...talking about nobody posting addresses and successes. But the two people whining admitted to sending ONE out and a handful for the entire year.  And they admitted to waiting for others to post addresses to get successes for himself.  I leave you with this sentiment: If you are part of the problem, you should not whine. Be part of the solution.

10/25/05  News: Bill Hootkins passed from Pancreatic cancer. He was 58. His first film role was in 1977, playing Jedi fighter Jek Porkins in George Lucas' Star Wars. Though the part was small, it had a big impact. He joked in a Whatsonstage.com interview two years ago: “In a sense, my career's been downhill ever since. Fans still come to greet me at the stage door with action figures of my character and embarrassing photographs for me to sign.”

07/28/05  I got this in my inbox twice today from two separate emails, but the person thinks he's writing to two celebs:

 

"I am great fan of your work and I know you might not get time to read this, and are probabally bored with people e-mailing you or busy at the moment. I was hoping, if its not to much trouble that I could get a copy of your autograph I would really appreicate it. Look foward to your future work."

Thanks a lot,
Your biggest fan.

Name withheld to not embarrass

 

Let's dissect this:

1) He doesn't name the celeb at all

2) He doesn't mention the celebs work or anything; who the heck is he writing to?  Sounds like he wants any autograph from anyone

3) He misspelled three words in two sentences.  Two words:  SPELL CHECK

4) The grammar well, um, sucks!

5) Apparently, everyone he writes to he proclaims he is their "biggest fan". 

6) He gives his address assuming the person will pay postage, send something that is signed, buy envelopes and travel to the post office.  Wow! 

 

That's a lot wrong for two sentences! This is another thing killing the hobby.  ALWAYS provide proper postage, something to sign and never give your address unless they ask you to.  Always ask if it's ok if you send them something so you can foot the postage. It's called not making assumptions and being KIND and POLITE.  MANNERS PEOPLE!  Sorry, just upsetting seeing this over and over. News: Rob and Matt B, your items are mailed. Mail success:  Ralph Nelson Jr. (1128) (Star Wars Crew)

 

07/25/05 News: I've heard, but have not confirmed, that Mike Cottrell, passed away. Mike is related to Michaela and both were in Star Wars. Thanks W for that. THANK YOU to Gary B who mailed me a surprise package. Gary, I no longer have your email. If I do, I can't find it.  Can you email me?  THANKS!  As a result of his kindness, I have added 12 new Star Wars Weekend items to the collection.  Sometimes I get down on all the negative that happens then someone does a random act like this and restores my faith in how decent and kind people can be.

07/24/05 News:  It now appears Michael Culver stopped signing ttm.  He is charging 20.00 now! See what I mean?  More than 75% of the actors now are not are now signing or charging. My thanks to Ulrich, Tim, Aurélien and the other person who emailed with the convention updatesRTS: Bruce Spence, c/o Lisa Mann Creative Management Suite 2 Level 1 99 Spring Street, Bondi Junction, NSW, 2022, Australia. Also, A "Wrong Person" for Michael W Williams (Pirates of the Caribbean). Mail successes: John Cleese (British Actor/Harry Potter) and Tim Wylton (British Sitcoms).  Someone said I had the wrong photo of John Mollo.  I know he had convincing evidence (it's a photo somewhere in a book and the name says Ben Burtt whereas the one on IMDB says John Mollo). In addition, he knows someone who knows Ben or John and said that the photo I got signed wasn't him.  I wondered why Mr. Mollo would sign a photo that's not his.  Then I got a current photo of Mr. Mollo courtesy of a friend.... well look for yourself...he's older, but does he not look the same? Opinions? That's all for today!

07/20/05 Purchase: Geraldine Somerville (Harry Potter).  Wes McGann (1123) (Star Wars Naboo Pilot), Alison Guilford (1124) (Star Wars Alien Citizen) and  Dan Turner (1125) (Star Wars Stand in/crew). News:  David Bowers is charging.  News: Rune V (Hoth Troopers) won't respond, will refuse mail and apparently only will sell his signature, referring to another site selling them.  Time to start boycotting these people as it's getting beyond ridiculous.  EVERYONE wants money.  What gets me, is we the fans pay to see the films, and help by giving them more free publicity (like right now).  We spend the time to write a genuine letter, pay postage, send items and envelopes ... everything.  All they have to do is be happy they have a fan, sign and put it in the mail at no cost to them.  We make their day by giving them accolades and what do we get?  Nothing but sadness and rejection and told to hand over money.  This is horrible!  Some are super nice.  For those, I remember almost every letter and watch for their names in the credits.  I tell others about them too!  So I appreciate those who sign and do my best to return the favor by promoting or writing to producers etc on their behalf (to keep them on shows etc).. My thanks for the likes of people like Warwick Davis, Jeremy Bulloch, Kenny Baker and others who not only respond by mail but also do conventions to supplement their income. They have class.  The thing is the others don't realize is not all fans can go to Australia, the UK, US, Norway or where to go to a convention or meet them in person.  Not all of us can afford to buy an autograph from everyone. Not with almost everyone charging!  What they also don't realize is Jeremy Bulloch and Warwick Davis have MORE fans because of this.  They are revered in ways others won't be and it's not because of the character they play...it's because of THEIR character!  When I get opportunities to meet them, I'll do it and try to buy something BECAUSE they were so nice. Most others tell me they agree and these are the most successful convention guests.  So to the people who won't sign ... I hope this helps.

07/16/05 Tim, Gerald and Zach, your items are mailed.  

 

07/15/05 One item through a friend:  Christian Slater.  Thanks Leon!  and RTS: Jeremy Pelzer which was sent to a second address and still returned "No longer at this address; Addressee unknown".   Trade: George Leech (1121), but it's a terrible item.  So for this reason, I must get on my soap box a little.  For those new to collecting, here are some tips:

1) Don't clip signatures.  If an item is inscribed, though not the most desirable autograph to have, it's better than having a clipped signature or in this case, a signature where the inscription is cut out.  Depending on WHAT the autograph is, yes, inscriptions make it worth less. It's akin to defacing a painting or stripping a piece of good furniture.  So, DON'T hack up autographs!  Where the inscription marks the value 25-50% depending, the clipped item is worse....50-75%! Not that I sell anything...

2) Never write on the front of the autograph at all!  In this case, they drew around a ruler or something straight and drew a square/rectangle to cut out the inscription.  Again, this is defacing it.  If you want to write something on it, use pencil, do it small in the back, or better yet, use a post it affixed to the back with the information.

3)  Never Glue items! This one had tiny photos on it. and all were glued to a backboard.

4) Though a lot of people print out their own items (me too) you should try to make them standard sizes if possible.  3x5, 4x6, 5x7, 8x10 as these will fit easily into specially sold sleeves, be easier to sell. I know sometimes it's difficult to do this, but if possible, it will help to sell or trade etc...if they are normal sizes.

5) Homemade photos:  These are up in the air. I personally do these, and think they only affect value minimally.  I think a lot of times it helps in some ways because dealers will get professional items, but collectors use these and often times, this helps identify that and legitimatize a signature.  So I don't say anything too negative about this except that if you are going to make these, try to do them in decent quality.  For example, if you have some jpg at 72 dpi, don't try to size a small one to 8x10.  Just make it the smallest "normal" size possible. 

6) To keep relationships going, if you are trading items, please be honest about it.  Though the person may not want it, you will still the door open for further trades and when you need help down the road.... well, most will be more willing to help when they know they are dealing with honest people.  So that one thing you got will not be worth it in the long haul!

Did you see the Junkyard episode where ILM went up against the Jim Henson team?  Nail biting to the end ... I thought it'd be a blow away from the beginning, but goes to show you how good Henson's team was as well.

They're not actual sigs, so they won't be counted, but will be  here for you to compare to only.  Mail success: Manuel Cauchi (Troy) and Michael J Pollard (Lost in Space).  In person failure: Stephen Baldwin.  Mostly because we got there so late due to a phone call from a family member.  I forgot to put my card back in my camera (still plugged into PC).

06/13/05 Mail: Star Wars Fan Club package.  Why do they even bother with this.  Most of the fans are adults and a iron on ADVERTISEMENT and a sticker and a bunch of ads are crap.  What would be better would to be a free magazine, a real poster (not an advertising one), a real patch, iron on or some promo cards or something of some substance.  They call this a benefit?  It's nothing but crap.  How about a free book?  Comic?  Greeting card, or something someone would actually buy and use?  Pencil?  Pen? Coloring book?  How about a coupon for a free pack of CCG/TCG or a discount on SW merchandise bought in actual stores like Toys R Us and Waldenbooks? Geez, I could do a better job than they do! 

 

06/12/05 News: We went to Blackbeard Festival  we took site down, so come back late 2006 to www.dahoovsplace.com to see images. Also we went to Harbourfest and saw  Mary Wilson (of the Supremes) so photos will be added in 2006 on the site above. Purchases: Jennifer Tilly (Haunted Mansion) and Alfie Enoch (Harry Potter).

05/02/05 Online: Celebrity photos from Celebration IIINews:  there's a forger on Ebay copying things from this site.  Many of the celebs will no longer sign, have only signed for me and/or a friend and have stated that to me; this FORGER on Ebay is selling 'signatures that are impossible for him to have obtained. In one case, I get a signature and a week later it's on Ebay. The person has not been known before and a week later, it's on Ebay...and he claims to have gotten it on person?  He apparently found this guy, flew to another country, got a worthless signature, flew back to his own country, listed the item on Ebay for lots more than it's value.  Possible?  NO. Here's his ID and stay clear!  filmzauber88 I urge all of you to stay clear of this forger and thief.

04/25/05  I am baaaack!  CIII diary online (first two days). Everyone got everything except Michael Kingma, who was a no show. I heard he was detained at customs. Another person told us he was scheduled for surgery or something like that, but the customs thing probably was right. The only people I did not meet are a few of the crew members and also I never did see Warwick Davis ... I pretty much met everyone else. Great time, no lost items. I want to thank all those fantastic fans and celebs.  It was great meeting people from all over (I guess that was most fun for me). I had a great time with several people (the two guys in line the first day from Puerto Rico was fun, and Danny who is Rob's friend, I was gonna go talk to you when you were at the table near Gerald, but people kept snagging me to talk...then we had to catch our flight ... I was gonna ask you about the volunteer part, so if you're reading this, email me and let me know!.  Rob and I got disconnected after day one ... And thanks Chester (who works with Ted Nugent) ... email me because I may have something for you ... and to the guy I met from Germany who was at Gerald's table, and the sculptor guy who did the fan sculpture ... and to anyone else who we spoke with, feel free to email anytime. Matt, thanks for holding my spot and great fun we got to see Lucas!  We thought you were all fantastic, enthusiastic, funny and great to talk to!  We had a great time even in the airports.  Mostly, I enjoyed meeting Toby and Gerald who were my inspiration to go.

02/13/04 I've been ill, and lost my computer. And I didn't just fry out the processor, but I lost my entire hard drive! I backed up my address lists, sites and a few other important things, but it was a month prior.  So I lost all information the past month.  Also, I lost my ENTIRE address book in my email area, as well as saved emails.  So.... if anyone is owed emails or is expecting to hear from me but hasn't, please email. The tragedy is so bad for what I lost, that I am devastated and have spent the last week rebuilding.  However, I can't rebuild a lot of it . . . I do however, have a nice new PC. It's faster at 2.93 GHZ and 512K RAM.  I already had a 160 gig hard drive, but now I've 220 gigs total.  AND some other new stuff like a new wireless optical mouse and a keyboard with fingerprint ID!  Neat stuff..... I'm all set now.  I lost all my bookmarks, three weeks worth of recipe typing (25 years worth of clippings and cards I'd saved and never used hardly), all my friends addresses...  It's heartbreaking. Mail successes: Scott Hinds (1056) (Star Wars Nien Numb) and Joshua Richards (Troy).

01/30/05  News:  I am starting a "reference service" for collectors wanting expert advice in certain areas of collecting. I'm looking for collectors who are not afraid to offer advice to other collectors on signature verification.  For example:  Disney, Sports, Xena, Buffy, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, James Bond, Golden era of Hollywood, Music; anything you specialize in.  You must be willing to take forwarded emails from fans/collectors on signature verification and you must be knowledgeable in the field...either having collected for many years, or get all your signatures in person. In return, you will have your site listed on mine, you can refer people to me for my specialties and there may be some form of either a web ring or something else which will garner attention for you.  Applicants will be screened. Please email me if interested.
