CAITLYN JENNER - Through The Mail (TTM) Autograph

Caitlyn Jenner
Signed (2) 8x10 Photos
Sent: 03/22/16
Rec'd: 04/25/16
(33 Day Return)

     Though there is a lot of controversy surrounding Caitlyn Jenner, I am more focused on the past and all that he accomplished as Bruce Jenner. That's being an Olympic Gold Medalist for the Decathlon in the 1976 Olympics. I never sent off to Bruce when Bruce was Bruce and that was my mistake. When I was deep into sending TTM's it never crossed my mind to send at that time. Well now, that Bruce is now Caitlyn, I figured I would send off a couple photos. It just didn't seem right to send photos of Bruce because Bruce is no more and she signs as Caitlyn. Caitlyn is here and that's the photos I sent. Bruce/Caitlyn is really a great signer TTM and has been for quite some time. I just wished I had sent to him earlier, but no big deal. I am still happy to have Caitlyn's autograph in my collection. Though she isn't a Gold Medalist, she however had the courage to come out and make known to the world who she is now and that takes balls (no pun intended). For that, I can respect. I will end that here, but to get these photos back signed still makes me remember how great an athlete Bruce was back in the day and that's something that no one can take away..

(79 Day Return)

     Being a huge The Walking Dead fan as I have stated before, anytime I can get an autograph from a cast member is awesome. Though I have missed out on getting Katelyn Nacon who is Enid in the show, when she was in town for a convention, I decided to send these photos off to her via TTM. She's a great signer TTM and I figured I would try. 79 days later my photos came back signed and personalized to me. I couldn't be more happier. Though she doesn't have a huge part in The Walking Dead, I feel they are leading up to something big with her. Maybe next season she will play a more prominent part, that's if anyone knows that she is locked up in a closet thanks to Carl (sorry, a spoiler from the last episode). Time will tell, but for today I am glad these came back signed and they will fit perfectly in my Walking Dead autograph collection.

TOM PAYNE & TED WHITE - Private Signing

Tom Payne
Signed 8x10 Photo

Ted White
Signed Jason Vorhees Funko Pop

     My buddy Jayare with Zobie Productions was doing a private signing with both Tom Payne who is Jesus in The Walking Dead and Ted White who has an extensive acting career. I really wanted Tom Payne for my Walking Dead collection. He is going to have a HUGE part next Season and maybe Seasons to come. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get in on it so I did. Next, Ted White who is 90 years old and is not attending anymore conventions. I have met Ted before and he is a great guy and loves his fans. I didn't have a Jason Funko signed by him and so that's what I ended up getting. Ted was Jason in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. Besides that he was a stunt double for John Wayne and Clark Gable back in the day. I am happy to have these two autographs in my collection all thanks to Jayare.

SEAN PATRICK FLANERY - Local News Interview 04/21/2016

Sean Patrick Flanery
Signed 11x14 Photo

     Sean Patrick Flanery was in Dallas, TX yesterday to promote his new book he has coming out called "Jane Two".  A local news station was interviewing Sean to promote his book. Being a huge Boondock Saints movie fan, I had to get a Boondock Saints photo with him and Norman Reeds which I hope to get signed soon.

     Sean came walking up to the news station all by himself and at first I didn't think it was him till my buddy Dave said that's him. So we walked towards Sean and he was nice as can be. He signed autographs for mostly everyone there, but he said he had to get in and would sign on the way out. He already signed my photo so all I wanted was a photo with him. After the interview he came out and started where he left off. He was on Periscope (an app that takes live video feed) the whole time when he left the studio and was signing and taking pictures (yes I got mine). You can check it out if you have the app on your phone. It's kinda funny to say the least.

     It was a great time with friends while we waited to meet Sean Patrick Flanery and Alfred Molina. There's not many days like this when all goes well. Another successful day in the books!

ALFRED MOLINA - Local News Interview 04/21/2016

Alfred Molina
Signed 8x12 & 11x14 Photo

     Alfred Molina was in town here in Dallas, TX for the USA Film Festival promoting his new movie called "Little Men". He was at a local news station for an interview to promote his movie and the Film Festival.

     Alfred Molina is a celebrity that really cares a lot about his fans. He was really nice, signed what we had and even had time to take pictures. I love the remake Maverick and he has the role of Angel in that movie. It's a great movie if you haven't seen it. Mel Gibson is Maverick of course and James Garner is in it as well. Check it out. Anyways, I told Alfred that I loved his role of Angel in Maverick and he told me I was just talking about that movie to someone this morning. I had a great time talking to him and seeing everyone get their items signed. I thought Alfred would of been overwhelmed, but he was having a great time with all of us. We all thanked him and he went on his way in to the studio.

DAVID ARQUETTE - Local News Interview 04/20/2016

David Arquette
Signed 8x12 & 10x15 Photos

     It's that time of year again in the Dallas, TX area. That time is the Dallas International Film Festival and the USA Film Festival which fall back to back. It's a great time especially when the Film Festivals bring some big names in. As luck would have it, the DIFF had David Arquette coming in to promote his film "Orion". I just purchased a Scream movie poster photo that was signed by Neve Campbell and it was authenticated by PSA. Reason I purchased it was because at Texas Frightmare next week the rest of the cast will be there including Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich & Rose McGowan. Also, Jamie Kennedy is in town this week and I will add him as well. David Arquette is going to be at Texas Frightmare as well, but I thought I would try to get to him before that.

    A local news station was having David as a guest to promote his movie and the film festival and he was to be in studio. So myself and a bunch of friends got there early and sure enough David was walking towards us to get into the studio. We got to him and he was really friendly and signed and took pictures with all of his fans. He was awesome and was joking around with us. It was a great experience overall and I couldn't be more pleased.

     P.S. i If you haven't watched the movie Bone Tomahawk with him in it, please watch it. It is a great movie. Though David has a small part it's damn good.

(46 Day Return)

     You want to go where everybody knows your name and they are always glad you came.... Yes, I am talking about the show Cheers! I absolutely loved watching that show growing up. One of my many favorite characters from the show was Cliff Clavin, played by John Ratzenberger.

     John was in town last yer to throw the first pitch out at the Texas Rangers game, but I couldn't make it due to work so I figure I would send the photos to him. He's a decent signer through the mail and always takes care of his fans. This time was no different. He signed both my photos I sent and they came back in little over a month. Not bad from one of my childhood faves!

FRANK LANGELLA - Through The Mail (TTM) Autograph

Frank Langella
Signed 8x10 Photo

(20 Day Return)

     I finally got back Frank Langella today. A couple years ago when he was on Broadway (only way I know of to get him TTM) I was late at sending my photos to him and they were returned to me unsigned. No big deal as I know at some point he is going to be on Broadway again. Well the time came and I sent off. He graciously singed my Superman Returns photo. He was Perry White in that movie if you didn't know. I sent another photo, but that came back unsigned which is no big deal. I was happy to get his longer signature. I say this because he has a short signature which is just "FL", his initials.

     You have until June 12th to send off to Frank Langella. He's doing the play "The Father" on Broadway. I would only send 1 item as that's all he is signing. Good luck.  

ANDREW LINCOLN - Through The Mail (TTM) Autograph

Andrew Lincoln
Signed (2) 8x10 Photos

Rec'd: 04/11/2016
(335 Day Return)

     Now, I don't get super excited about many returns I get back, but this one is one of those. I am a huge The Walking Dead fan and have been since Season 1. I have gotten Andrew Lincoln a couple times before TTM as he signed a Rolling Stone magazine I sent as well as some 4x6 photos I no longer have. That's fine, but I didn't have any 8x10 photos so I sent off to him last year and wrote a nice letter.

     To say he's an easy autograph to get would be false. I know a lot of people that just need him for cast signed pieces. He only does the Walker Stalker Atlanta convention and he only signs a few hundred and that's it. He donates all the money to charity which makes me respect him even more. Besides that, you may get him at a red carpet event if you are lucky, so that leaves TTM. Andrew has always been a decent signer TTM, but it takes a while to get back, if you get anything back at all. I took my chances and it paid off. He graciously signed, personalized and inscribed both photos which is awesome! I couldn't be more happier with this success. If you haven't already sent off to Andrew Lincoln, do so and be prepared to play the waiting game. In the end, it will all be worth it.

Kristen Renton
Signed (2) 8x12 Photos

(16 Day Return)

     The last TTM success for the day comes from the lovely and beautiful Kristen Renton. If you are a huge Sons of Anarchy fan like I am, you will know she is Ima (Jax's fling) in the show. She was supposed to be in town last year for a convention, but she cancelled and that was a bummer. Would of been great to meet her, so I went with my back up plan and sent the photos TTM.

     16 Days later they arrived signed by Kristen. The one photo she signed will be sent off to Tom Arnold to be signed. Yes, Tom Arnold signs TTM. I will be sending this off to him shortly after I do a photo order. Anyways, another great SOA success and I am still hoping she pops up at a convention around here again. Time will tell.

(92 Day Return)

     Though today was a great mail day, I am excited most about this success. None other then Mr. Pink himself (Reservoir Dogs) Steve Buscemi. Steve is a hell of an actor and I love his roles in Fargo, Sopranos and Reservoir Dogs to name a few. I seen he was signing through his agency so I sent off.

     92 days later I received back 1 of 2 photos I sent. I kind of knew this that he only signed one, but I took my chances and sent 2. No big deal though he was kind enough to sign one and personalize it to me and send it back. I will take that any day especially from him. He did keep my other 8x10 which was a photo from Reservoir Dogs, but like I said no big deal. I was just happy to get a success back.

     Have you seen my baseball? No, but I have seen a success in my mailbox from actor W. Earl Brown. He is most notable for his role as Warren in There's Something About Mary. A great and funny movie. Also, he was Dan Dority in Deadwood another great series.

     I wrote to W. Earl Brown a few years ago and he signed a baseball for me, but I don't have that baseball anymore so I figure I would send a couple photos since I seen he was still signing through his agency. He graciously signed both my photos and inscribed "Have you seen my baseball?" on one of my photos. A great success from a great actor.

(66 Day Return)

     What a great way to start the month of April by having a Game of Thrones success come back. That would be Tyrion Lannister himself, Peter Dinklage. He graciously signed my 8x10 photo, but kept the other photo I sent. No big deal, I was just happy that this came back in the first place.

     Sunday, April 24th starts Season 6 of Game of Thrones and if you are a fan of the show like I am, you just can't wait. If you haven't seen GOT, please do yourself a favor and watch it. You will be hooked. Peter Dinklage, aka Tyrion Lannister is one of my favorites from the show. He has a no holds barred, I don't give a shit attitude and that makes him so likable in the show. Aside from Game of Thrones, he has been in Elf, X-Men: Days of Future Past & Pixels to name a few. He's definitely a great actor and been in a lot and will continue to be in a lot of movies and shows, but it's hard to top his role in Game of Thrones.

     A great beginning to the month and I hope it continues as I have a lot of TTM's out there and a lot of them if they come back will be EPIC. Time will tell.....
