As his new film Shutter Island is released in the United States, Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio says their one role he’d absolutely love to play. In a nod to director and good friend Martin Scorsese, DiCaprio listed Travis Bickle, the lead character in 1976’s Taxi Driver, to be his dream role. While fans who’ve collected Leonardo DiCaprio autographs and Al Pacino memorabilia likely can only imagine the 35-year old playing the demented Bickle, Shutter Island, the fourth collective effort between Scorsese and DiCaprio, will look to make it’s own marks starting today.

The film is about the disappearance of a woman on the remote and ultra-creepy Shutter Island. Home to the criminally insane, DiCaprio’s character Teddy Daniels scours the island while encountering some less than desirable company. The film also stars Hollywood heavyweight Ben Kingsley and the up-and-coming Mark Ruffalo.
It was a great night for entertainment and television memorabilia collectors as a star-studded cast lined 30 Rock’s sarcastic ode to Valentine’s Day last night. The weekly ratings powerhouse welcomed guest appearances from Horatio Sanz, Jon Bon Jovi, Elizabeth Banks and Jason Sudeikis in Thursday’s “Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day” episode, one that saw a hilarious take on celebrity stalking and the romantic shortcomings of characters Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy.
In one of the funniest skits of the show’s fourth season, Jane Krakowski finds her character Jenna being stalked by Maynard (played by Sanz), who goes as far to mail her pictures of him breaking into her home. Krakowski’s character also receives butchered television show photos and collages from Sanz, at each point letting out a high-frequency shriek.
Tracy Morgan’s character chimes in with a note about celebrity stalking: “That’s a real problem in the celebrity community. But if Beyonce would just answer one of my letters, I’d stop trying to break into her house“.
After three weeks of very public bickering and amidst gargantuan ratings, NBC and soon-to-be-ousted Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien have reportedly agreed to terms on a separation. After boiling down the fates of Conan’s characters like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Pimpbot 5000, the two sides spent much of the past four days hammering out severance packages for many of the nearly 200 employees currently employed on the Tonight Show. While Robin Williams joked about NBC having a yard sale for the set’s couches and desk on Thursday’s show, there’s no word if the network will hold an auction or sale for the show’s television memorabilia. When Leno left the Tonight Show in May of last year, there was a bevy of celebrity autographs made available through a private auction in the following weeks.
Having grown up in New York City I have many fond memories of Howard Stern.
Listening to him was refreshing because radio at the time had strong censorship and Howard would push the envelope in a controversial way.
He was born in Jackson Heights on January 12th 1954.
As the years went by he started having beautiful women as guests and always accentuated the sexiness about them.
Stern holds two notable records. One is that he is the most fined radio jock on the airwaves and secondly the highest paid.
He has been in a constant battle with the Federal Communications Commission and has fought for the right to speak freely on the radio.
He started out in Boston in 1975. In 1982 he paired up with his long time partner Robin Quivers and the rest they say is history!
I have always liked his combination of talking people into doing things they would normally not do, especially on a radio show that has millions of listeners, but also balancing that out with respect for the individual.
He is now able to be listened to on Sirius XM which is uncensored and commercial free.
Throughout the years there have been many Howard Stern memorabilia items. One new and exciting item is a air brushed Howard Stern signed guitar, airbrushed by one of the most acclaimed artist around.
Some great news for collectors of star photos and celebrity autographs, we’ve added great new shots in recent weeks! One of the most recognizable celebrities of all time, a Marilyn Monroe autographed photo is essential for a real Hollywood experience in your hobby room. If you’re looking for a perfect gift for the music lover in your life this holiday season, you can’t miss with a Bono autographed photo. With U2 being one of the biggest bands in the world along with their iconic singer’s status as one of the world’s most recognizable figures, any of his autographed photos would be a hit for any music fan young or old.
While Dave Grohl signed guitars might not be in every music memorabilia collectors’ hobby room, odds are a couple of their CDs are in the house, somewhere. The Foo Fighters, the 15-year project of Grohl’s is set to release a 16-track greatest hits record before taking a hiatus starting in 2010. With six Grammy awards and over 20 million records sold worldwide, Grohl recently stated the “world needs a break” from the band and the members will be ready to take on a new challenge when they do choose to reconvene.
The two names Michael Jackson have most likely been spelled out several million times since his untimely death.
Volumes can be written about him due to so many factors but one that enables this more than others was his longevity as a star for so many decades.
Michael Jackson was one of the most unique individuals on this planet and if ever the statement that says “one marches to the tune of a different drum” it would most aptly apply to him.
His style, music, dance and lyrics implied individuality and would more likely than not point us in a new and different direction.
It is told by those closest to him that Michael was certainly two distinct personalities; one a shy, introverted, overly sensitive, giving compassionate human being and the other a ultra performer, taking every single person in the audience prisoner to his songs and dance.
Passionately and tirelessly performing in what seemed beyond human capabilities.
The energy he exuded must have originated from a higher source than most of us have access to.
If we are to be honest with ourselves I think we can admit that when he was undergoing his criminal charges we had many doubts about his character. I think many of us abandoned him
and dismissed him as a freak.
I felt the same way at the time. Now that so many more personal stories have come out, it helped form for me a clearer picture of who the man really was.
And the conclusion I personally have drawn is that on the personal side of his nature he was truly childlike and innocent, compassionate and giving, and if we can quote a very famous deity didn’t he say “lest you become like children again you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven”?
Naturally, there will be an enormous interest in signed Michael Jackson memorabilia.
Thank you so much for the many joyous and memorable times.
