How To Collect Celebrity Autographs That Could Make You Rich One Day

Would you like to be a celebrity? Many people would, but I don’t find the idea attractive at all. Being hounded by the media and people wanting to take ‘selfies’ with you isn’t my idea of fun at all. There would be obvious benefits such as the huge income that celebrity status often brings, and having a partner thirty years younger than yourself; they are in love, no, really.


These people are famous for a reason; not all of the reasons are good, but a reason nonetheless. The world is clamoring to get the latest celebrity gossip and people spend millions of pounds every month in Britain alone, just to get magazines with the latest insights into the lives of the rich and famous.

If you are an autograph collector, these famous faces are a good source of material for your hobby. But how to get them to sign their names? That is often the difficult part.

Cut Down Your Film Rental Budget

With the advent of online film streaming services that have become the standard in the last few years, hard copy film rentals from a brick and mortar store appear to be going the way of the dodo bird. But the good news is that this decline means that consumers can spend approximately what it would have cost to rent a few DVD films in order to get online database access to thousands and thousands of movies, new and old. Services like Netflix, by partnering with many film making companies in order to acquire the rights for distributing so much Hollywood, Bollywood, and independent cinema, are able to offer a huge array of selections to their subscribers at a tiny price.

If you haven't made the conversion over to an online based film streaming service, consider doing so to  shave a huge amount off what you are currently spending on film rentals. By foregoing the standard rental and subscribing to one of the popular online services, you will have more money left over in your entertainment budget to attend cinema showings, especially at matinee prices. Plus, you will save yourself not only cash but also the hassle of renting and returning films from your local shop.

Wackiest Awards Ever Received

While an award is typically a good thing, and a sign of a job well done, occasionally crystal plaques and awards are used to poke fun at something or celebrate the craziness of life. Most people enjoy being awarded something, even if it’s just for something funny or crazy they did.

In the awards world, statues and awards often symbolize something to do with the organization giving the award. While some are classy and sophisticated, others are downright crazy and different, but perhaps that makes them even more noticeable.

Worst Picture

The Golden Raspberry Awards are given every year in an effort to lighten the atmosphere and poke fun at those in the entertainment industry. Each year, an award for Worst Picture is given. It’s tough to find a filmmaker, director or actor that actually wants to win this award, although it does showcase the ability of the individual to relax and laugh at the work they’ve done that hasn’t been so great

Surfboards for All

Whether you like surfing or live in Alaska, winning a Teen Choice Award means that you are given a life-size surfboard for your efforts. Many awards are easy to store and display, but this particular award may cause many to scratch their heads and wonder how in the world they will even get it home. Despite the strangeness of the award itself, the Teen Choice Awards are a constant hit for young adults and teenagers to enjoy the work of their favorites in the entertainment industry.

Manny Pacquiao Movie

Manny Pacquiao fans will be thrilled to know that a documentary film about their ‘idol’s’ life is set to be released this year. The movie will feature ‘Pacman’s’ life – from his poverty stricken origins to his current, multi-million successes.

Manny Pacquiao, Manny Pacquiao MovieThe released film teasers have already garnered positive reviews. It is narrated by no less than award winning actor, Liam Neeson. And if that isn’t enough, familiar faces will appear as well to give their own personal insights of the Pambansang Kamao. ( literally translated as National Fist, as Manny is so fondly called by his fellowmen.)

This is not the first movie about Manny’s life. In June 2006, a biopic was released, Pacquiao: The Movie. It starred Jericho Rosales as the famed boxer and Bea Alonzo as his wife, Jinkee and featured actual footage from the highlights of Pacman’s career.

What sets this movie apart is the raw honesty it brings to Manny’s fans. It will have personal reflections from Manny, shared stories from his family and friends and interviews from Hollywood stars turned fans as well as musings from his trainer, Freddie Roach. For the first time, viewers will hear his words and travel back through time with him. For the first time, he will share his struggle, his pain and his success. This is what draws in fans: our empathy with Manny Pacquiao. This is the same reason why Filipinos emulate him; his journey was not a smooth paved path but a rough road full of thorns and riddled with stones.
