Nikki Blonsky

I haven't sent out to many letters lately but apparently "You Can't Stop the Beat". Yesterday I received my photo back from Nikki Blonsky, the actress who played Tracy Turnbald in recent film version of Hairspray. She signed and inscribed my photo and sent me a nice little note thanking me for my letter and wishing me Happy Holidays! A class act for sure! :)

The Goo Goo Dolls

Yesterday I got my copy of the Goo Goo Dolls Vol.2 special internet edition CD that was only available as a pre-order. The CD came with a limited edition lithograph. A small number of them would be autographed. I lucked out and got one of the autographed ones!!! So excited about this one. I have been wanting the Goo Goo Dolls autographs for awhile but never had any success writing them via venue.

Peter Cullen

I was suprised to find this success in the mail last week as I wrote Peter a long time ago. I think the spring or summer of 2007 (I lost track of the record). Anyhow, I am glad to receive a response from him to add to my collection of Disney Voice actors. Peter Cullen provides the voice of Eeyore and he sent me this fabulous color photo of him and Eeyore that he signed and inscribed in silver sharpie!

Paula DeAnda

I haven't had time to write many autograph requests lately, but today I got a suprise in the mail! My sister sent me an autographed photo of teen R&B Pop singer Paula DeAnda. I hope to take sometime to get out some requests so hopefully I will have more updates of goodies to report soon!

Kate Voegele

I finally found the chance to scan the Kate Voegele autograph I got last month. Sorry for the delay in getting this post and scan up here, its been a busy month. Kate Voegele is a singer signed to the MySpace record label at Interscope Records. She also plays a character named Mia on the show One Tree Hill. I LOVE Kate's CD Don't Look Away- check out her music on her Myspace to hear her songs!

Aaron Eckhart

Last year I watched Aaron's movie about the tobacco industry Thank You For Smoking in my Public Relations class. It's a really great movie and for anyone who hasn't seen it I highly recommend doing so! I just recently sent off a magazine photo to Aaron which he returned back to me signed and he also sent along his own BW photo that he signed and inscribed to me. His reply time was super quick (11 days)! I'm really hoping these signatures are authentic because he is such a great actor. I want to see his film No Reservations that he did with Catherine Zeta-Jones as I didn't get the chance to see it in theatres.

Cast of Legally Blonde: The Musical

Omigod... omigod, you guys! So its been awhile since I posted but in April I finally got another success in the mail, a Playbill signed by the cast of the Broadway musical Legally Blonde. I got rush tickets to go see the show during my Spring break with my sister and cousin and it's phenomenal! Definitely one of my favorites on Broadway. I'd see it again in a heartbeat. :)

Home for the summer now and I'm starting to send out some more requests so hopefully I'll have some cool stuff to post in the upcoming months.

Ed Alonzo

Growing up I was a big fan of the television show Saved By the Bell. My sister and I would watch it all of the time. In July I emailed Ed Alonzo asking for an autographed photo. He played the role of Max, the magician/owner of the diner The Max. This February he sent me this BW 8x10 photo of him as his Saved By the Bell character and he also sent me a signed color postcard sized photo of himself.

Carole King

I wrote to Carole King about 3 years ago and never heard back from her. I heard that she'd been out on tour for the past several years and I decided to give her another shot. My parents are a fan of her music so I listened to it a lot growing up. I LOVE her album Tapestry, it's definitely a musical masterpiece. I received this back in January and was really excited about this success! I'm glad to add Carole's signature to my collection. She's a very talented singer and songwriter and I enjoy listening to her music. She sent me this 8x10 BW photo and even took the time to inscribed it to me! :)

Dane Cook

I wasn't expecting this one. I wrote to Dane Cook once via snail mail and then sent another request via email after not hearing back from him. If your a regular reader of my blog you probably already know that I got Dane's autograph already. I guess they must have finally found my snail mail request and he sent me another signed photo (different from the first one I received). But hey I'm not complaining... I LOVE Dane!!!

Taylor Swift

I discovered Taylor Swift's music after hearing her song "Tim McGraw", which is ironically named after her favorite singer. I instantly became a fan. Taylor has a beautiful voice and her songs are so easy to relate to. Maybe that is because Taylor is very hands on and writes most of the songs herself. She is definetly going places and I look forward to hearing more of her music whenever she records a second album.

Caroll Spinney

Caroll Spinney is the man behind the vocie of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. Seasame Street was one of my favorite shows to watch as a child so I decided to write a letter to him after reading his book The Wisdom of Big Bird (and the Dark Genius of Oscar the Grouch): Lessons from a Life in Feathers. It was a VERY enjoyable book, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and easy read. This success is easily one of my favorites from 2007. Mr. Spinney sent me this smaller BW ISP of himself as well as an 8x10 color ISP of Big Bird, a color copy of a Christmas illustration of Big Bird, an orginal sketch he drew of Big Bird for me and probably my favorite of all.... he drew a sketch of Oscar on the cereal box I sent for cardboard backing on the blank side and there is word bubble coming out of Oscars mouth that says "Hey, Shel- This is great! I've been drawn on an 'Ol Piece 'O card!" Mr. Spinney also sent me a nice letter that was very enjoyable to read. Probably my favorite of the few handwritten notes I have received. He even drew a little sketch on it too. An AWESOME success.. He is obviously a man who truly appreciates his fans! :)

Jerry Bruckheimer

Jerry has produced many notable movies including Flashdance, Top Gun, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and Black Hawk Down to name a few. He also worked on all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies which I have to say are my favorite movies of his along with the sports flick Remember the Titans. Recently, he signed on to produce a movie of the Sophie Kinsella book, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Loved that book can't wait to see it on the big screen! :)
