You know, when I count them up, I’ve met more than my fair share of celebrities. There was the time I saw Daniel O’Donnell in his underpants in my neighbour’s back garden (true story), the time I saw Engelbert Humperdinck falling off a golf cart (truer story), and the time I bought Meatloaf a can of coke from a vending machine (the truest of them all).
Unfortunately I don’t have pictorial evidence of any of those encounters, so these will have to do…
IT’S ONLY BLOODY JORDAN CATALANO!
Fans of My So Called Life will recognise this be-hooded, slightly foolish looking man as Jordan Catalano (aka Jared Leto from the films Requiem for a Dream and Fight Club, and from crap band 30 Seconds to Mars). To me he will always be Jordan Catalano, lover of Angela and leaner against things.
IT’S ONLY BLOODY BILL BAILEY
We went to see Bill Bailey in the Olympia, accosted him in the pub next door after the gig, and then proceeded to lead his road crew astray for 48 hours, almost broke up a marriage, and introduced them to Stoneybatter. Good times.
IT’S ONLY BLOODY VAMPIRE WEEKEND
It was raining. I had to hold their umbrella. You can see how impressed I am.
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES, IT’S ABYSS!
He’s big in the wrestling world, apparently.
