The Cleveland Guys

Hopefully you can all forgive me, and it’s not like I haven’t thought about you at all during my absence… it’s just… I’ve been busy annnd there really hasn’t been much going on.

So today I am going to give you a little surprise, why a surprise? Well because it was a surprise for me, it was an unplanned stalk but a stalk nonetheless.

Saturday (June 13th, 2015) a group of us went downtown to celebrate Shari’s 30th birthday, we ended up at The 9. Which is a pretty sweet place, I don’t get out much or hang out at the cool clubs downtown, especially the fancy rooftop ones. So I was pleasantly entertained, it was a bit cramped especially when you had to make your way past the bar and out to the ladies bathroom which was a smidge tiny. I say this because I had the bathroom door fly open and the handle embedded into my lower back on several occasions.

We were all all having a good time, one of us in particular, it was hard to tell if she was drunk or just a free spirit but either way I watched from a distance as she pliè’d across the open rooftop floor, twirling around and kicking imaginary flies out of the air.

My friend Jaime and I were debating whether to record her or not when I noticed something out of the corner of my eye and by something I meant someone…someone after my own heart. It was dark and he was dark but I could make out a figure in the shadows, he had moved from his place up against the wall, phone in hand and following our friend.

He was obviously recording her but then I recognized this man and I went into full stalk mode, I asked Jaime but she had no clue. So I did some research, I hated to interrupt his secret recording session for no reason and look like a fool but my suspensions were correct and thus I made my move.

I walked up to him, I had to move fast too because he was on a mission following this girl… and asked “Are you Ricky Smith? He said yes, I asked for a picture and he responded with “you’ll have to ask the camera” So of course I got all sassy and asked the camera. Shit!

He was super cool, we took a picture and I got to taste his palm. Then he wanted Jaime to jump in and we took a selfie, I panicked and made that awful creeper 2.0 face. I knew he was going to stick out his tongue and I wanted to too, well. We can’t ALL be perfect!

IMG_20150614_241339592 IMG_20150614_241407272

We talked for a bit, he asked a lot of questions and seemed legit interested in our personal lives. It was refreshing. He wanted to know how I knew who he was, I replied that I follow him on Instagram and know that he does a lot for our community.

Shari and Katie strolled over and everyone was introduced to everyone, we talked some more and then he was all about a photo shoot with my phone.

So, in order to take the picture all you have to do is touch the screen, there is not a set button you push… but first you have to have the phone facing the correct way. As you can see, it took Mr.Smith 4 times to get the perfect picture but he was super determined and I liked it. I can’t stand a blurry picture, especially if there is no chance for taking a better one. #Props

Below is a short clip of what Mr.Smith is all about, check it out.

During all of this I got to meet  DJ Stephen Floss, wasn’t sure who he was until I did a little Googling afterwards. It was fun, him and Ricky were trying to see who was more famous and kept track of how many people recognized them throughout the night.

He was nice and even let me take a picture with him, OH and he’s not that blurry in real life. Click on his name and it will take you to his YouTube page, he is the DJ for The Cavs and is pretty well known here in Cleveland.

Shari’s birthday was a success, we had a great time and met a lot of nice people.

 

Stay tuned for me.

Hi again.

I just want to start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who has liked, commented, watched, shared, and put up with our random videos.

That being said, let’s get down to business.

Once again Shari invited me to hang with her on this glorious Wednesday night. She had found out that ‪#‎TheVeronicas‬ were coming to Cleveland to play a free concert at the ‪#‎aloft‬ hotel.

Shari has met these lovely sisters many times and on one occasion they even stopped by Regal Cinemas to see a movie.

She has about a dozen autographs from them but not one picture, so of course she was on a mission.

This was my first time listening to their music and even seeing what they looked like, I was a newbie and excited about it.

I picked Shari up around 6:30 and we raced downtown to get there in time, sadly for us we had the hardest of hard times trying to find this hotel.

After about 45 loops around Cleveland, off the freeway, on the freeway, off the freeway we finally find our destination.

We got in and the ladies were deep in their set, Shari and I shuffled to the back of the crowd and stood there unable to see anything.

We got to hear about 3 1/2 songs before they finished and then disappeared into the back. A few minutes later we were escorted into a line and waited our turn to meet the sisters.

We got to the front, Shari and I were next so I turned on the video and began filming.

Check out the video below of our interactions.

They were super sweet, cute, and fragile. They took pictures and signed the cd cover Shari was nice enough to let me have, they even let me ramble on and interacted with me as well.

What great and down to earth gals, not to mention they have fantastic voices and good music.

Jay Leno = Let Down

JAY LENO

Hello and welcome back!

 Tonights adventure with Shari Pollack, featuring our personal chauffeur Patrick Dodge. #JayLeno #CLE #PlayhouseSquare

Posted by GoneStalking.com on Sunday, April 26, 2015

Shari and I took off to ‪#‎Cleveland‬ Sunday night in hopes of seeing, meeting, and getting a couple of cute pictures with ‪#‎JayLeno‬ but to our disappointment we weren’t even close.
We arrived around 5:30 and joined 3 guys that were already there, they were ebayers. We talked to the one guy for a moment and he informed us Jay is super nice and will sign for everyone and sign everything/anything you have. This made us a little more excited because we weren’t sure how Mr. Leno was personally. Within the next hour or so our group had doubled, Shari and I being the only fans who were there for the joy of it and not the $$.
As we were waiting we noticed there was a lot of movement going in and out of the door. Playhouse had a lot of things going on and you could tell by the groups of men, woman, and children coming and going. Shortly after that Mr.Security Guard, Captain Hook came out and informed us that Jay Leno rolled up in a limo and walked through the main entrance doors up front and then he was going to hop into the same limo and leave right after his show.

Check out the video below.

Shari and I had a few things to think about and whether or not we wanted to believe Hook. In the past he has come out and completely lied to us to get the crowd to leave, saying they won’t come out and sign or they already left…things like that. He was very nice and Shari believed him from the start, I not so much. We bickered back and fourth, I was willing to wait till 7 but it was tricky. I was hoping he was wrong and that Jay was still in rout but it was hard to tell. After some clever investigative work, Shari found a photo on the Internet that showed Jay with his opening act inside the Playhouse.

Jay leno

Welp, that’s all we needed to know and thus we took off and made our way on foot to the casino.
Check out the video below as myself and Shari record ourselves talking about the nights festivities as we walk the streets of Cleveland.
Try to enjoy, it’s a bit random, off subject and some might find it annoying. Watch at your own risk, 🙂

We met my husband Patrick at the casino, had something to eat and then did a little gambling. I mentioned to Pat that we should head back to the Playhouse and try to catch Leno coming out but he wanted nothing to do with it…and I was only have serious.
At least we had a nice night out, a little upset our mission was a total failure. Usually when we don’t get the picture or autograph we at least get to see the celebrity, so this time around was kinda lame. We’re not even sure why he was dropped off in the front, if it was planed or a spur of the moment situation. Either way I didn’t get to meet Jay Leno and I was pissed.
When we got home another picture surfaced and this one was of Jay and 3 boys, this just made Shari and I even more salty. Never a break.

Anyways

Thank you for your time and sorry we couldn’t report back with anything exciting.
Stay tuned for more.

Stalk ya later.

Green Day = Rainy Day

Green Day

Green Day

 

 

Shari suggested we hunt down Green Day, I like Green Day so I figured why not. House of Blues is a pretty easy venue for one to snag a celebrity, we’ve done it many times before…some successful some not soo successful but we were willing to give this one a try.

The Cleveland weather showed rain and low 50’s during the time we needed to hang outside, this didn’t make Shari and I very happy. However a stalk is a stalk and we’ve waited it out in worst, so we packed up and headed on out.

I picked Shari up around 6:15pm and we made our way to Cleveland, we were lucky enough to find a parking spot on the street and basically in front of the HOB…for FREE! We walked to the back where the buses and or drop off area was, there was already a few people hanging around.

The wind picked up and the temperature seemed to have dropped since we had gotten there but it wasn’t raining and that was good. We used this time to take a traditional selfie, eye-bags included.

IMG_20150416_190552307

 

During this time an older gentleman came by, he went right up to the group of girls. There was 5 of them I think, probably between 18-23.  He comes over and is like “Here’s the deal” so naturally I turned to listen. This guy must have talked to the group earlier and then came back with answer’s. From what I could tell, he had 2 tickets and wanted to give one away for free, The girls obviously wouldn’t split up so they suggested he give the ticket to the one other guy. This guy was by himself, I am pretty sure he was an ebayer. He totally was cool with taking the ticket but the guy didn’t want to give it to a guy, he said he wanted to give it to someone less fourenant. Anyways. It got real weird real quick, people were yelling and name calling. He tried talking to us and getting us on his side but we just stood there staring at him. He finally left and the rest of us just went back to waiting for Green Day to arrive. A few minutes later we decided to shoot a little video, below you will find Shari filling our fans in on the nights festivities.

Shortly after we shot the video a fancy black van with tinted windows appeared at the entrance of the driveway. We all knew it was them, so we got up and played it cool. The van pulled past us and then stopped, the rain started but it was a slow drizzle. All 9 of us stood there quiet and patiently, expecting the members to come out and take a few pictures but that never happened While this was all going down I handed my phone to Shari and told her to face the van because it was recording, I was digging into my bag to pull out the 12-year-old ticket stub I had from when they came to concert with Blink 182.

 

IMG_20150416_213218436

 

When I looked up I noticed the van had pulled all the way up to the loading dock, I went to get my phone back from Shari but she no longer had it annnnnd didn’t know where it went. LOL. Long story short one of the kids waiting, took it from her and continued to get the footage for us. Green Day got out of the van and we all called for them, we did get some of them to turn around and one waved.

Check out the video below of Green Day leaving their fans out in the cold and rain.

Shari and I waited a few more minutes, the rain was coming down hard and we figured the boys of Green Day were not coming back out. Instead Shari and I headed into the House Of Blues and had some dinner.

It turned out to be a nice night, we didn’t wait long and we didn’t have to pay for parking. Green Day didn’t stop to take pictures but we did see them so I guess it’s wasn’t a total bust. Plus we had found out later that they opened up for themselves disguised as another band, which was probably why they went right in. If there was a legit opening act we might have had a better chance of meeting them.

We paid for our meal, ghetto style and left.

IMG_20150416_200842842

I’d like to say Congratulations to Green Day for being inducted to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame here in Cleveland.

And thank you to all our fans!!

Thanks for following our adventures, stay tuned for more.

Harland Williams

Harland Williams

Hello!

You were probably wondering where myself and Shari have been this winter, well I assure you we have a few tricks up our sleeves. If you can hold on just a little longer I promise a few good adventures, but in the meantime please enjoy this easy stalk.

 

Harland was on the hit list for the month of April, he was scheduled to perform at Hilarities from Friday till Sunday so we had a few options. However a week ago I got the call that I won yet another 4 pack to an upcoming comedy show. Harland was one of the names on the list and I knew right away that’s who we were going to see, the downfall… only Friday night was available and that would mean I would have to miss volleyball. I was ok with that. 🙂 So I scrounged up a few people and we made our way downtown, it was a beautiful night. A little wet and a little chilly but it was Cleveland and it was April so we rolled with it.

We picked up our tickets and made our way down the stairs where some nice gentlemen escorted us to our seats, we ordered some food and a few dranks and prepared to laugh.

The opening act was a lovely, black lady. I don’t remember her name and never did get a picture with her but she was talented and very funny, she introduced the next guy. Some middle-aged white dude, at first…to me he seemed dry and I was nervous but he came too and I also enjoyed his comedy. He was hanging out back after the show, I thought about getting a picture with him but I already held my company up too long so I decided against it.

Finally Harland comes out and he did not disappoint.  He was probably one of the funniest if not funniest comedians I have seen there or ever. I never stopped laughing and actually had tears running down my face. There was even a few times where I had the creepy silent laugh and couldn’t breath. I even became that annoying laugher that people turned around to look at.  He interacted with the audience and never skipped a beat, it was like half the time he was making his act up on the spot and it was perfect. I clearly enjoyed myself and would absolutely go see him th next time he comes around.

At the end he was nice enough to meet his fans out in the lobby. First he was selling his shirt that he wore on stage. For most of the night I was focused on it trying to figure out what he said. Finally some whore he called out who was on her phone asked him the question.

The video above explains the shirt and you can purchase one from his site for $22, or you can get one at his shows for $20. 🙂

Anywho. He was selling the shirts first and signing autograph and when that was all done then he was taking pictures with the peeps. So my brother and I got in line, I had T.J. get the ticket signed so I can add it to my scrapbook and then I had Harland sign the cover of my Sorority Boys DVD. He was super cool about it, I got nervous because it was a DVD but he did it without hesitation.

 

IMG_20150410_223410174

 

When that was all said and done we waited to get our pictures with him, one of the workers was taking the pictures for Mr.Williams to keep things moving along. He took the picture and the flash never went off when I looked at it, it was a little blur… kinda like a turd flying through space.

IMG_20150410_211918005

I said something and Harland was cool with taking another picture but people were quick to jump in with him. So my husband and I waited off to the side patiently. After about 4 or 5 people Harland saw we were still waiting and he asked if we wanted another picture, I said yeah but I didn’t want to jump in front of anyone. He said, we were next and like he promised we jumped back in and got another picture. Once again there was no flash but I wasn’t going to go back for a third, luckily it was good.

IMG_20150410_212120142

What a fun evening!! I got to spend with my husband, brother, mother and her partner. Great food, company and laughs.

 

Special thanks to Hilarities for the hook up and warm hospitality and for Harland Williams for the laughs!

 

Thank you for my fans!! Hope you enjoyed the story, please like, comment and SHARE!!

Cleveland Comic Con / Wizard World

Wizard
Hello!
I’ll try to make this short and sweet but there is soooooooooooo much to talk about. Let us begin where Pat and I were going to purchase the 3 day weekend pass but ended up just getting tickets for Saturday. It was $107.00 for the two of us, $45 a piece plus some crazy amount of tax. However Pat and I were planning this for some time now so we were prepared to pay the price. We had never been to a #ComicCon before and with this being #Cleveland‘s first we just had to check it out. #ClevelandComicCon Now my husband is a geek and loves his super heroes and comic books, so he was excited for other reasons. I on the other hand was all about the celebrities that would be occupying their little booths. One celebrity in particular was Scott Wilson / #HershelGreene from The Walking Dead (TheWalkingDead) , and I was going to snag him for sure. The sucky thing about all of this was that you had to pay for a picture and then pay for an autograph but not all of us had a million dollars. But I had a few bucks in my pocket and went there expecting to spend some of it, I wasn’t leaving there without a picture with a celebrity.When we got there, we headed straight to the back where all the celebs were caged in little areas. We headed over to where Scott Wilson was, it was very exciting…for me. At most of the booths you could pay in cash for a picture (selfie) or an autograph or both but at a cheaper rate. You also could chat it up with them for a bit and then move a long. Wizard World was offering “Photo ops” for a lot more money but they were professionally taken, and you got a free print out of it. I didn’t need all that and was content with an average photo with my own camera. Pat forced me to get in line and do my photo op with Scott before it was too late. As I was scooting through the line I made eye contact with Scott and we had a small conversation before I made it to him. So I did, paid my $20 and got a picture with Mr.Wilson, I didn’t want to pay another $30 for an autograph. When I got up there he asked for a hug, and of course I gave him one. He was super sweet and talked to us for a minuet.
Scott Wilson
When all was done Pat and I went our separate ways. He was going to look at all the toys and booths and I was going to hang out with the celebrities. I wanted to meet more but I didn’t want to pay for it, so I decided to try and catch them in between. It didn’t work out so well:
1) Seth Gilliam / #GabrielStokes from #TheWalkingDead had a booth next to Scott. I saw him leave his area and book it across the floor, so I followed him. I made it to him and asked for a quick picture, he acted as though I wasn’t there. He was frantically looking around for something, I asked if he was on a mission and he said yes. So I let him go but I still followed him, lol. The whole time I kept an eye out and nobody even noticed him so I wasn’t to nervous about drawing any unnecessary attention. On his way back, I hung behind and let him pass me. I walked back up to him and asked Seth again. He said no and told me I could go to his booth if I wanted a picture. I told him maybe I would and he said ok. That’s when I decided I wasn’t going to give him my money, his booth remained empty for most of the time. I felt one quick selfie wouldn’t have hurt anything.
Seth Gillum
2) Lou Ferrigno / #TheIncredibleHulk was next, his booth was more open and was easier to get to. At one point he left his post to talk to someone, I waited till he came back. When he did, I “accidentally” walked into his path to make contact, which I did. He put his large hand on my tiny Shoulder and we exchanged words. He stood there for a second, we were kinda behind the black wall. I took this chance to ask him for a selfie, I said “Can we take an illegal selfie real quick?” he hesitated, and then sad no and pointed to his booth. For a moment I felt he was going to say yes but the power of the #WizardWorld people must be stronger than I thought.
 Lou
3) Adrian Paul / #Highlander had left his booth he was on the move and I literally had to jog to catch up with him. I reached him and got his attention, he turned around and apologized but he couldn’t, and then a staff member came running towards us saying he had to go and he couldn’t stop. Then he disappeared into the photo op section, I think he had an appointment with paying customers. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt and let this one slide.
Adrian1
4) James Marsters / #Spike from #BuffytheVampireSlayer and #Angel. This was towards the end of the day and I wasn’t even looking for him when I happened to look up and saw him walking towards me. So of course I asked if it would be ok for a picture and he apologized but couldn’t, the guy he was with said the same thing and then they walked away.
Spike
I was denied 4 times and wasn’t feeling it anymore, I had failed. It might not have been so bad if I had recordings of the rejections but I thought I would get the selfie (plus I had to act fast) so I had to have my camera ready just in case. Anyways, I kept circling the booths with $60 burning a hole in my pocket, I wanted one more celebrity. My back was hurting me my feet and legs hated me but I kept on, at one point Pat found me and forced me to eat something.

I was able to sneak a selfie of myself and Lou

Lou and I

and myself and Jason David Frank, The Green and White #PowerRanger.

Jason David Frank

I finally decided who I was going to get a picture with next, Drea de Matteo from #TheSopranos and #DesperateHousewives ( I LOVE and MISS DHW). My main decision had a lot to do with that she was the cheapest at $20 for a picture. I would have gotten a picture with everyone but since my money tree withered up, I had to resort to penny pinching and thus my decision to snag Drea. She was starting to put her jacket on so I jumped right in, she was kind enough to spare some time. Her handler took 2 pictures like super quick, I thanked her and walked off. I took a look at the pictures of us and I looked horrible. One, my eyes were closed and the other, I had a stupid look on my face. So I walked back over there and asked for a redo, that I’d even erase the other two. She said “I didn’t have to do that” and she would take another one with me. We joked around, and the guy kept taking picture after picture. At one point she even tickled me, it was a fun and awkward photo shoot. I thanked them and then went on my way, making sure to check and see that I had a good picture. Out of the dozen or so I was able to find a nice one.

Drea

Well, this is the longest blog of your life and I apologize but I can’t help myself. I promise, it’s almost over.

It was after 5 or 6 and most of the booths were cleared out, I decided to call it quits. I found Pat sitting at a table and joined him, it was nice to rest. As we were chilling I saw that Adrian was packing it up for the night and last minuet I had to get a picture with him too. I walked over and put on my cutest smile, they were kind enough to let me sneak in a quick one. The man that was with Adrian took the picture for us and of course before I could leave I had to check to see if I looked good in it. Adrian, looks at me and goes “Is it good?” I nodded yes, he smiled, I thanked him and that was that.

Adrian

When that was all said and done, we made our way towards the door when my husband told me there was a #DoctorWho actor over here taking pictures with people. I never watched the show or knew any of the actors in it but I jumped in to get a picture with the guy anyways. I Googled the show but couldn’t find this guy anywhere, I saw someone had tagged him as the tenth doctor and some of the pictures looked like him. Well, I posted the picture but was told that wasn’t the actor but a look a like. OH well, my mistake. I did find that he is on a web series about the show on YouTube, so that kinda counts…right?

Doctor Who

Finally the floor was closing and we decided it was time to leave. We had a nice adventure but Pat was disappointed that the comic books were not as plentiful as he would have liked. I thought Wizard World was a little greedy with everything, especially with the celebrities and all the fees. I also think that Wizard World has strict rules, which was why I was dissed on the selfies. It seemed some wanted to take the picture but that they were scared to death to give in, haha. I’d like to know how that all works, and who gets paid and where all the money goes to. For now, I’ll keep a low profile. Maybe some day, I’ll figure it out.

I would have LOVED to get more celebrity faces and I feel that I tried really hard to make that happen but the cards were against me that day. I also didn’t get any autographs, just money I felt I better  hold onto for food and such and it’s not like I plan on selling the autographs anyways…so no need for them at this time. PLUS. I like a picture anyways, shows proof you were there and is worth a thousand words from what I hear.

ALSO, might I add. Everyone was super friendly, from the staff, to the customers, all the booth people and mostly the celebrities. Can’t be easy sitting there for hours having the same conversation with creepy fans day after day. Mad props and a great big THANK YOU!

 

There were other celebrities floating around too, these were the ones I got pictures of. There are a few others I didn’t recall seeing while I was there or missed completely, exciting –  I KNOW!

A lot of the celebrity folk hung out and around the Cleveland area, including the Casino AND were nice and taking pictures…probably for free I might add. Next time I’ll pay more attention and chill at the Black Jack tables, I might have better luck. It’s very hard though to be on call, especially living on the eastside which is a good 15 to 20 minutes away, not like I can just take a walk down the block. Parking is expensive and traffic can be horrible, not to mention the weather we’ve been having here lately.

I think that is it for now, enjoy the pictures. Some of the staff were super serious and wouldn’t let you take pictures of the stars but I did my best. I have more pictures that maybe I’ll upload later.

Ohhh and I went back before I left and gave Scott another hug, we talked for a minuet and then I let the man be. If I was thinking I could of had Pat take pictures or record it…but I didn’t think of it till after the fact. Also. It appears that Mr.Wilson hugs everyone, young, old, and ugly. I thought we shared a moment…I still think I was his favorite though.

Thank you for your patience, I know this was long.

STALK ON!

 

Wendy Liebman

Wendy Liebman

WENDY LIEBMAN

 

Wendy on Americas Got Talent

 

Good morning,
My story begins on one very cold and snowy day in February, or maybe it was in January. I think it was January, more towards the end of the month so it felt like it could have been February. Actually this information is useless to the current situation so I am going to continue on.
A small time ago Pickwick & Frolic/Hilarities 4th Street Theatre (my new favorite place) called me up and said “Hey, you won 4 tickets to a future show” and then listed 3 different acts. All I heard was Blah, Blah, Blah, #WendyLiebman and I knew right away which show I was picking. I was also a bit disappointed in myself for not knowing she was coming to Cleveland, Ohio but that was in the past and I was going to see her in the future so all was right with the world.Slipping back a smidge further into the 2014 season of America’s Got Talent, which is where we first saw Wendy and fell in love. She didn’t win but she got super far and with being a comedian…let a long a female one at that was very impressive.

OK, now back to present day.

I found Wendy on Twitter, followed her and began tagging her in many random tweets. To my surprise she has favorited I think every one that she was tagged in, pretty sweet. At least I knew she was reading or somewhat acknowledging me and that made my heart fill up with joy. Not much gets me all hot and bothered.

So, the night of the show came pretty quickly. Luckily for us the #Cleveland snow storm was the night before so the roads and weather, despite the below freezing temperatures were manageable and we headed downtown and parked. We made our way in and to my surprise were sat very close to the stage, ordered some dranks and waited for the show to begin.

First out was local comedian and crowd pleaser #BrianKenny (@BrianKenny69), he got the room going and was a pleasantly funny despite living in his parents basement.

Next out was @MikeParamore (#MichaelParamore), I liked his style. Very entertaining, one big chocolate teddy bear.

AND THEN the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the headliner of the night Wendy Libeman appeared out of the dark wearing black and standing 3 feet tall on stage. The microphone stand hovering over her like a blanket of stars, I could have scooped her up and ran off with her but I wanted to see her act first… you know to make sure keeping her locked up in my apartment was going to be worth it for the next few decades. Anyways, fantasies aside. I sipped on my drink and enjoyed the show. She was great, just how I remembered her from T.V. Lots of energy and constantly smiling, she interacted with the audience and was very patient at times. WE enjoyed ourselves very much and hated to see it come to an end but like all good things it did.

When the lights came on we followed the crowd out the doors and up the stairs to do a little meet and greet with the comedians, my favorite part of the night. *Giggles*

Wendy was busy talking with an older gentleman and I waited awkwardly off to the side for when it was my time to pounce. When that time did come, which seemed like the longest 95 seconds of my life I scooted in. But she turned around to Michael and they exchanged high fives, I had to break them up because it was my turn. Wendy was very kind and friendly, I told her how we watched and rooted for her the whole time on AGT. She said she had such a blast on the show, I asked her about Cleveland and she said she was having such a good time. We then got our picture taken together, I thanked her again.. Oh..Oh. The hug, I almost forgot about the hug. So. I am a huge hugger and have been known to give pretty damn good hugs but putting all that aside. When Wendy and I initially met, She asked what my name was (which was sweet) and that’s when I brought up AGT, we smiled at each other and then she held her arms out and wanted to give me a hug, ME! I’m usually the one wrapping my creepy arms around people. So, that totes made my night. The picture was taken and I’m sure we said a few other things that I can’t quite remember. I then asked her to sign my ticket stub and she didn’t have any problem with it. Of course I had a sharpie with me all ready to go and while she was signing she covered it up with her had has to keep it a secret. She had signed it using my name, which she remembered (more points for me) and then I made some lame comment about her number being on it. I’m hoping she didn’t hear that but I’m afraid she did, I sometimes need to try not to be “funny” because it just makes me look bad. We said our goodbyes, I kinda wanted to stay and talk with her all night. She seemed super cool and down to earth, would loved to have picked her brain BUT I had people with me and of course work the next day. Before I left I made sure I got me some more hugs and snagged a picture with the boys.

Wendy and I

Ticket stubWe got home at a reasonable time and this young lad went right to bed.

Woke up the next day and uploaded all my pictures and once again bothered Wendy on twitter, I think she finally caved in and decided to follow me back! SCORE!!! Wendy Twitter

Jeff Daniels and the Ben Daniels Band

Hello everyone!!
Saturday (1/31/15) night Shari and I attended a concert at the Music Box Supper Club in Cleveland, this club has only been open for about 4 or 6 months, it actually appears to be apart of the same building the Cleveland Improv is located.

Initially we thought it was just a bar type situation, we would go, order some food, have a couple of drinks and enjoy the show. But it turns out this is more of a club and we had to purchase tickets to get inside. Bummer. This wasn’t in the budget, so now we had to make plans for our plans because we still wanted to meet Jeff Daniels. AND at this point if you’re like “#JeffDaniels, the actor?” I will add that you are correct. I thought the same thing but looked it up and he has been writing and signing for sometime now. His son has the band #TheBenDanielsBand and I guess Jeff is floating around with him for a little bit.

Moving on.

I made contact with the club and they told me to check out FlashSeats, last minute, I did and got 2 tickets for $13 total. Normal ticket prices were like $30 a piece, so we lucked out.

Shari picked me up around 7 and we made our way downtown, took us a minuet to find the place but we did and parked. Parking was $6, not horrible. As we walked to the entrance we checked out the surroundings to see where the exit door would be and the possible escape rout. There was one place, the side of the building and pretty close to the actual main doors. There was a black van that looked like it could hold some band equipment. We felt pretty confident that this would be the spot we needed to be after the show. As we made our way in and up the stairs we saw a table that had a sign reading CD’s and merchandise. Hoping that he would hang out there afterwards and we could just do a wham, bam, thank you ma’am and leave.

Inside was what I would describe like a smaller wedding type hall, lined with tables. We were seated pretty close to the stage and sat at a table with other peoples. Shari and I ordered some food and a couple of beers and enjoyed our night.

Jeff and the Ben Daniels Band came out on time and began playing. I liked the music, it was upbeat for most of the time with hints of humor in it.

Jeff talked a lot and explained how he came up with the idea for certain songs, and was very informative. He also had a pretty decent raspy voice, I was impressed.

 

The night ended and they said their goodbyes, Shari and I waited for our check and made our way out. The table we passed on the way in was bare so we knew that we were going to have to head out into the cold.

When we got outside we saw that there were a few people waiting already and in the spot we figured. However these folks were the eBay people with their little clipboards and printed pictures of Jeff Daniels.

Then one of the band mates came out and looked like a deer in headlights when he saw all 6 of us standing out there. He was kind of rude and told us we could not stay there, that they had to leave and get back to Michigan before the HUGE snow storm. Anyways. All the eBay people left and it was just Shari and I and then 2 other woman who were kind of waiting behind us.

Well to make this story longer, it started getting really cold and it was taking forever for Jeff to come out but we were gonna to wait and make sure Jeff denied us and not his security.

Finally he came out and the security made a line, at one point the guy in front of me turned to look at me and then stepped in my way. Annoying. But I was recording the whole time. Jeff walked out and ignored us pretty much, you can hear him saying he can’t and he might of said thank you or something IDK. Anyways. I was a little disappointed that he didn’t take a minuet for a quick picture. I guess it is what is it but I am a bit salty about it.

 

All and all it was a nice evening and pretty cheap, glad we went.

Oh and we met a nice couple sitting at our table, I feel bad I didn’t get their name but they were big supporters of our “stalking”. Love meeting new people!!

Thank you to everyone, hope you enjoyed our little adventure. Please, like, comment, and share with all your close friends.

Stalk ya later!! See More

 

I’m BACK!

Woah!!

I don’t know what happened (and I’m not sure if I am fully functional yet) but thanks to my buddy Johnny Sarcasm I am at least above water.

Sorry that I have been so out of touch and not up to date but there have been a few adventures I need to get everyone up to speed on.

While the site was down I started a Facebook page and continued from where I left off. At this point it’s a lot easier and more convienient to use that portal, so I am torn with what do. I am getting a lot more views (I think) and interactions with Facebook than this blog but I hate to just give up on it. Please visit the page for the full stories and more pictures, I am thinking I will transfer everything to here soon depending on my decision.

Any feedback is very much welcomed!

For the moment, this is what you have missed:

 

I met Clint Frazier after a Captains baseball game one day, got a picture and had him sign a foul ball we got a few weeks eariler. He was signed by The Indians in 2013 and could make it to the pros sooner than later.

The So You think You Can Dance crew came into town, we waited out in the cold for hours only to not meet anyone. A few were sick and they all had excuses that they were told from upper management they were NOT to come out and mingle with fans. I felt salty and voiced my opnion on Twitter, got a response from the winner and then backlash from all his fans. Eh. I’m over it.

Melissa Etheridge was a big success. I actually went to her show and had a blast, what a performer. Met her out back, she signed our ticketstubs and then went on her way. She declined a picture because she had just taken a shower and wasn’t all dolled up. I dropped the ball and didn’t get any secret video but got plenty of pictures of her during the show.

Tony Bennett was also a success, snagged him AND his daughter as they were entering the building. Got a picture with his daughter but he was only signing things, I got partial video the rest stopped recording… Very upset.

Chris Daughtry was a big fail, got there to late and missed him going into the building. We waited a little bit but he never came back out. We walked to the front and saw him through the glass taking pictures with fans. I recorded it but both my devises failed and I didn’t get anything to report back on.

I got to meet a few of The Cleveland Browns players, they were at a bar for an autograph party. Phil Taylor, Robert Nelson Jr, and Craig Robertson. Got pictures of them, with them and around them, got some things signed and talked to the guys. They were very nice.

Emma Stone was performing in New York City on Broadway, Shari took a trip down there to see the play and to try and meet her. SCORE. She got her playbill signed and got some video of her signing everything. She rolled throught the crowd pretty quick, no selfies though… this time. (winky face)

Got 4 free tickets to see David Alan Grier, great show and of course got in line to meet him afterwards.

Dancing With the Stars season 15 winner Alfonso Ribeiro went on tour with the group and had two performances at the HardRock Rocksino. Shari and I got there just in time as the bus was rolling up, he came out, signed our things and took a picture with us. Very nice!

The Voice Tour 2014

Welcome back!

Sorry it took me a minuet to get this post up but it’s pretty good, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

 

the-voice-artists

Shari wanted to hit up the crew from The Voice Tour and asked if I would go along with her and well…the rest is history. I felt kinda bad because I didn’t watch the last few seasons and had no idea who any of these singers were but you know me I am always down for a good stalk. I wish I had done some research at least (and I said I was going to but it came up really fast) this way I could have related to them on some level, but I did ok.

I worked till 3:30, swung by picked Shari up and made our way to Cleveland. By the time we parked and walked to the Playhouse it was probably a little after 4;30 and there were 3 giant busses already parked. Shari had picked us up some food and we sat on the sidewalk across from the parking lot and had a small picnic while checking our Twitter for any important tweets. At this point we figured everyone was in there but it was still a good 3 hours before the show and hoped we could catch a few walking back and forth.

There was plenty of activity but no one of importance… to us at least. The one thing that hurt us is that there is a building going up right next door and blocking the side of the building that we usually hideout at, it was rather annoying. So the one main door was butted up to the construction fence and it was really hard to see anyone or thing unless they came out past the building. At one point Tessanne Chin (season 5) and Jake Barker (season 6) popped out and Shari jumped up and tried getting their attention, waving and calling out Jake’s name. He waved back and gave her the “Hold one minuet” finger gesture and then sat down next to Tess on a curb behind a few cars and out of sight. Assuming they came out for a quick smoke and didn’t want to be bothered. Shari wanted to walk over there, I said he acknowledged you so he’ll be over no need to run them down. WELL, a few minutes later they got up, never looking at us and walked back inside as we yelled. That just made us salty right there, so we sat back down and watched the ants devour a puddle of ranch dressing we left on the sidewalk. It was getting closer to show time so we started pacing around and walked to the one side of the bus so we could look down the side of the building to see if anyone was hiding. We saw a couple, dressed nice and making out. Like creepers we watched and I took some serious stalker video and pictures (maybe I will post later). It looked like the guy could have been Will Champlin but it was hard to tell for sure and at one point they saw us but it was a weird situation all around. He started walking our way so we figured it was him and he was being nice but he made a sharp right turn and started towards another bus across the parking lot. So I started walking in that direction to try to get a better view of him, he never looked over and got on the bus. I wasn’t sure, Shari wasn’t sure either but I didn’t think it was. Maybe a relative but this mans beard was a little longer so we took our seats again but this time we moved up a few feet sitting on the edge of the grass/curb like situation with our feet in their parking lot.  Literally 30 seconds a voice comes booming over some speakers somewhere and tells us we are on private property, and on surveillance and need to leave. Shari and I just sat there like, is this really happening. We waited and then it spoke up again, “the police have been notified leave the premisses now”. Well this was a first for us, we’ve been to many a stalking at The Playhouse and never had this happen. It was very embarrassing (if there were anyone around to see it) and a little unsettling. security seen us, staff had seen us and if they had a problem they could have told us to move along like they’ve done in the  past. Well, anyways we decided to take a walk and come back after the show, just in case they did call the cops. Plus the sidewalk is not their property, could they really make us leave? So this really chapped my ass and I kept thinking and thinking about it. On the building there was what looked like some old ass speakers and next to that was a camera so yes, this could be real right now but I still couldn’t believe the Playhouse would stoop to that level.

The two of us walked to some new cupcake place and indulged a little then we went to Starbucks and rehydrated before pressing our luck at the Playhouse. We ended up standing on the corner, literally by the cross walk for fear of being arrested. It was close to 8 or 9 or something and Cleveland workers were emerging from the shadows, they help set up and take down stage equipment for shows and such. Most of the guys were hitting on us and who could blame them but we told them about the loud-speaker and they couldn’t believe it either. Which made me think that it wasn’t the Playhouse and here’s why. When we were watching that couple make out they probably felt threatened or they were just being dicks and wanted us to leave so when the guy walked to the bus and 30 seconds later the voice of God filled our bodies with electricity I figured it had to be him but how? I finally noticed that this bus had what looked like two speakers pointing outward on either end of the hood of the vehicle, I am still not 100% sure but I am leaning towards that it was the guy trying to scare us off. We may never know and even when the original Playhouse security came out I almost asked them but I didn’t want to get involved just in case.

The concert lasted a lot longer than we had anticipated it to but finally people started to flock from around the corner and with the presence of security it was almost time. It took a few minutes but finally the singers all came out and everyone but 2 made an appearance however Shari and I only got 6 out of the 9 because Tess slipped away before we could snag her.

Below is some video clips of the majority of the guys and girls coming out and being friendly. enjoy!

Everyone was super nice as you can see, took pictures, talked, and signed. (I still need to add Shari’s pictures)

The boys came out first while the ladies showered the stank off of them, first to jump into the crowd was Will Champlin (Season 5). He was the one we thought we saw earlier in the day but he never said anything to us and up close he looked differently than the other guy.

The picture came out a little blurry and let me tell you why –  my new camera is pretty sweet and by accident on vacation we found out it has a feature that takes random video while you’re taking pictures. I figured what better way to actually get me in some shots as well but the downfall is that it doesn’t let you focus it (that I know of) and thus the blurry effect. It’s really not a bad picture at all, very pleased with this one.

Next up was Jake Barker from earlier, the one that teased us and then ignored us but he redeemed himself. When Shari walked up to him he asked if she had waived before, of course we did and he replied with how sorry he was. He felt really bad but he had to get back inside and then gave us both a hug. So, we didn’t feel salty about him anymore.

image

Another great picture, damn Instagram you done good.

I do believe Josh Kaufman (Season 6) shuffled by after Jake, I thought he was super cute and of course very friendly.

image

We had to take a couple of pictures because the flash didn’t quit work the first time, it took a picture but this one came out better.

Jack Worthington (Season 6) appeared after Josh, they actually met in the middle and had a fun interaction together that was caught on video.

image

He actually almost walked away from me after Shari got her picture but I was like “hey” and he came back, everything worked out and no punches had to be thrown.

During all of this the ladies, like a heard of sheep came out all fresh and so clean-clean. Some went to the bus and never came out and some went to drop their bags off and then worked down the line.

First gal that made an appearance I think was Jacquie Lee (Season 5) and I didn’t know it was her. She had come from the back of the line and when she got closer she was all energetic and running around, I almost punched her in the throat because I thought she was a line jumper. I quickly calmed down when I realized she was signing ticket stubs and taking pictures. She was adorbs and very nice, I’m glad I didn’t take her out with my karate chop.

image

I look like a chooch standing next to her but whateves at least I got to meet her.

I do believe during this time Tes came out but she was only waving and you could tell wanted noting to do with her fans as she tried to back away. There was this one woman who was hanging out in the back and when Tes came out she was all over that shit, she pushed through and gave Tes a big hug. I’m assuming they knew each other and then after that she left. By this time Tes got sucked into the crowd and not to appear as a giant dick took a few pictures with people but still trying to rush back. She was getting close to us so we thought oh cool this might happen but then Christina Grimmie (Season 6) came running out towards us and everyone went wild. She came right over to Shari and I first and was pretty cool, we shared a few moments. During all of this Tes had slipped away and made it back to her safety zone but that was fine, I’d rather have met Christina over her anyways.

image

The bright building lights make for a sexy effect on the picture, even with my cheesy grin.

So we got what we needed from her and then waited for the other two to come out but rumors were flying around that they weren’t.  I’m not sure which story belongs to whom but one girl was visiting with her family and had left only to return later and then the other was on an intense phone call and couldn’t come out. That’s all I know and our security friend told us they were shutting it down anyways so Shari and I called it quits.

We ended up getting home later than we wanted to but the outcome was worth it, we met some new friends and had a nice time. The weather held off and was actually warm and dry which made for an easy stalking.

I got them all to sign my printer paper, haha.

It’s pretty ghetto but it does the trick.

Thanks to The Playhouse Square for putting up with us and for the performers of The Voice Tour.

Much thanks to our fans, please continue to stop back and enjoy our journey. Much love!!
