Ralph Garman: I wonder if his print looks as obnoxious as he sounds.

Shame about 100.3 . . . I can only take FHF for so long.

Jeez, what a dick. (Ralph whatever-the-fuck-his-last-name-is, not you.)

I'm sure he printed those emails out on a dot matrix printer (this was like 11 years ago) and read them on the air the next morning; and my voice had all sorts of hilarious speech impediments.

Now the exchange is framed on the wall behind his desk.

In the Hollywood Scandal thread, Kevin Smith's podcast was brought up and so I gave it a listen, and his co-host tells the story of going to a Hollywood party and seeing Stallone at the bar:

 

"And I went up to him and said: 'Sly, my name's Ralph and I'm from Philadelphia and I just wanted to let you know -'

And he said: 'Oh. Another one?'

And I thought: Well, he must get this a lot. That's fair. I'm just going to power through.

So I said: "i just want to let you know that, for a kid growing up in Philadelphia, your work meant a lot, and I just wanted to let you know. You went to Lincoln when you were in Phily and I went to North East - we were the, sort of, rival highschools - and so it was always important to me that I followed your work -'

And he said: 'I REALLY don't want to have this conversation right now.' He didn't even turn away from me, to walk away. He just stared at me after he said it. So I said 'Okay, then...' and I just walked away feeling like shit."

 

Smith subsequently makes the comment "I don't think that generation understands fans like latter generations do. Tthe 80's guys I've dealt with are, like, 'Why do I have to do that?'" (I wonder who he's talking about, huh?) 

 

Now, I get it. He probably gets people coming up to him all of the time, and maybe he's tired of it after all of these years. That's fine. But is he known for that kind of behaviour? 

 

LOL, is this guy serious?  You go up to a guy at a bar and just start forcing him to listen to your story while he's trying to enjoy a drink alone?  If you did that to a normal person you'd probably get alot more than stared at.  But Stallone is difficult, right?  He might be, but this story is retarded and the guy telling it is a self entitled dipshit.  I also love how he admits "shit, he must get this alot" but then keeps talking after Stallone made it clear he wanted to be left alone.  What a jackass.  Stars are not obligated to entertain your banalities.  Maybe next time just say "how's it going?" and see if he even wants to talk first.  You know, that's what normal people do.

The best part is when he realizes he's annoying the guy and keeps going anyway. Classic Garman.
post #907 of 923
Ya know....maybe Sly made that guy feel a little bad but....if I had god knows how many people from Philly or otherwise coming up to me for 40+ years and thinking that I owe them time because I made a movie about a guy from Philly or Rambo or whatever, I'd feel a little put upon too. Sure he could've been more gracious and took the compliment and moved on but who knows how many of these people think that they're your best bud now and wanna have an hour long conversation? Nope. I just don't say anything to them unless somehow our paths cross and THEY initiate the communication..

"Sly, you probably get this a lot, but I'm a cop, and my partner, well, she's also my mother..."

No, the best part is him walking up to a guy at a bar waiting for a drink and thinking the guy at the bar should be the one to do the walking when the conversation goes bad.

"So, uh, can I call my mom back home and have you say, 'Yo, Adrian!' when she picks up?"
post #911 of 923

There was a time when there were many horror stories about Sly (circa late 90s/early 00s) during the decline of his career. Wonder if it was during this time. Cause anything I've heard from the past 10 years has been how gracious he is to fans.

post #912 of 923
I honestly think people enjoy negative interactions with celebrities more than positive ones. The stories are interesting.
post #913 of 923
Note to self:

If I ever run into Sylvester Stallone, come up with a better story than how we attended different high schools at different times.
post #914 of 923

"Mr. Stallone, I just wanted to let you know that I always try to power through negative interactions and I learned it from watching you."

"Sly, I, too, was once wrongly imprisoned and forced into an alliance with Rob Schneider. Can I call my best friend and have you say, 'I am the law,' when he picks up?"

I think Stallone was justified in telling him to buzz off.

 

Hollywood Babble On was the last of Kevin Smith I could take... and even that came to an end after they feuded with Jon Lovitz, taking a private disagreement and airing it aloud to make him look bad. When in fact, it just made them look like even bigger unprofessional asses and further cemented why nobody wants anything to do with Smith anymore. 

 

The less said about Garman's awful impressions, the better.

Anyone here watch “This is Us”? Sly guest starred as himself in last week’s episode, and essentially this same situation took place with one of the main characters on the show. His reaction was quite a bit different though.

Also, he was great in the episode. It’s early, but I would say it’s a sure thing Sly gets nominated for an Emmy. His performance was especially touching if you know about what happened with his son.

This Is Us was filming at one of my job sites near the LA central library a few weeks back.
post #919 of 923
Speaking of Kevin Smith, I went to a screening of Resident Evil, and there were cosplayers. A couple Alices, a Chris Redfield, and some guy dressed as Silent Bob for no reason.

That was Kevin Smith, Brad.

I read about Stallone's appearance, and I assumed it was a riff on his character from this movie:

 

 

"You're a finger painting....BE A MASTERPIECE!!!"

I love that Stallone just stared him down and didn't look away until the dude walked away. Cracks me up.
