Brother Ali is one of my all-time favourite rappers. I first blogged about him last year just before this album came out.
I can’t believe that I actually got to meet him. He was a really cool, down to earth guy. It was quite an honour to interview him for the radio too. If you missed the interview, you can read it and download it here.
This is just one of the few autographs in my collection, but it is one of my favourites.
Thanks! Brother Ali.
It was amazing to watch Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. They were just breath-taking on the ice. They captured the hearts of Canadians and viewers across the world while they also took home Gold Medals.
I still can’t believe that I had the opportunity to meet and interview these two World Champions. It was such an honour.
Not only do I have the newspaper article to remind me of the event, but I was also able to get their autographs. Pretty cool, eh?

– Amazing Beauty and Grace on the Ice

Joe Quesada is the editor in chief of Marvel comics. He has also written and drawn Daredevil comics. I bought this single comic because it was left out of Volume 1 of the hardcover collections.
I met Joe Quesada at a comic book convention a few years back and I got him to autograph this book for me.
This is the the second post where I have shown you some of My Daredevil Collection. I have a few more things, including some more autographs that I will share with you here in the future.
Have a great weekend!
I met Tha Alkaholiks when they played Hamilton’s infamous X-Club way back in 1996. It was one of the best concerts that I have ever been to.
I got two of the members to autograph my cassette tape cover.
This one is from Tash.
And the liner notes were signed by J-Ro.
I got them to address it to my rapper name at the time (just in case you were wondering)
I remember that concert pretty vividly. I really miss the X-Club. It was a small venue where the artists were never afraid to come and hang out with the audience after the show. I saw so many great shows there and have a handful of autographs to show for it. I will be sharing more with you later.
Pretty cool, eh?
Last night I met an author. She came to my neighbourhood library to talk about her writing and to read some excerpts of her work.
Her name is Barbara Haworth-Attard.
I love how she told us that she had always written but had never even thought that it was something you could do as a career. She said, “I thought all writers were either British or dead.”
She also told us that if you want to be a writer, you should never quit your day job because you more than likely would not write. “Writing doesn’t work like that,” she said.
I found her talk to be enlightening, entertaining, and quite funny. She had quite a few fans there. I, personally, had not read any of her work yet but I just had to go to an author reading in my neighbourhood. I’m glad that I did.
I picked up a copy of her book A is for Angst
and she signed it for me.
A lot of people there told me it was hilarious. I look forward to reading it.
If you want to find out more about here, you can check her website.
I wrote Claire Danes a fan letter after watching the second episode of her amazing show “My So-Called Life.”
Something about her left me awestruck. I had to write that letter. I became an immediate fan and looked forward to Thursday nights at 8:00 to watch her on that excellent series.
I was almost floored when I received this postcard in the mail a few months later. When I scanned it into the computer, I overlapped her message from the back of the card so you can see it beside her picture.
I love how she wrote “Best of Everything and signed it with a heart. I always read it as “love Claire Danes.”
I have had this postcard framed and in my room for years now. It is my most-prized autograph in my entire collection and I’m glad that I can share it with you.
This is my most prized autograph. It is from all three members of Run-DMC.
Reverend Run, Daryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels and the late, great Jam Master Jay.
You can see that they autographed the door poster for me. I have it framed with my original ticket in the bottom right hand corner.
I wasn’t able to fit the entire poster into a scan so I just scanned a bit of it to share with you.
The concert was awesome. I think Run-DMC are the best group ever. I am just glad that I got to see them perform live and that I was actually able to get their autographs. It’s hard to believe that this was 15 years ago. It’s crazy how time flies.
J. Michael Straczynski is one of the best writers, period.
He wrote the amazing television series Babylon 5. The story in that series was phenomenal. It was actually a five-year arc. Plot lines continued through all five seasons and things that started in the very first episode were resolved in the finale. Amazing, amazing writing.
He has written a lot of television episodes for a variety of shows. He has also written comic books and graphic novels.
I met him at a comic book convention a few years back and got him to autograph this book. He also sat in on the panel discussion and had some very insightful things to say.
I’m proud to have this autograph in my collection. It will be displayed in the side panel for a month and then I will share another of piece of my autograph collection with you. Enjoy!
How cool is this? I got an autograph from Kyprios at the concert Sunday night.
Even cooler is the fact that my girlfriend was able to scan it in so I can share it with all of you.
I actually have quite a few autographs in my collection. I will be sharing a different autograph with you every month. Please stay tuned for those posts. If you miss it, don’t worry, I will keep the autograph on my sidebar for that entire time.
I am really excited about displaying my collection like this for all of you to see.
