Laurence Fishburn again and the Spitzers

Saw Laurence Fishburne again at  French Roast this time sitting at the bar at with the same African -American male companion and another guy telling stories (he is not shy)  Later they all went out for a cigarette and he stabbed at some balloons which were attached to a metal utility box with a butter knife.

Told my Elliot Spitizer nonsensical rhyme going past the condo building ( built by his father) where he lives on fifth avenue “and his wife is Silda Wall and he is sleeping down the hall” and the woman in the couplet or what looked like her when I looked over was below the bus in earshot of the aforementioned auditory– then just later the driver an ex professional wrestler and titular head of a tribe in Nigeria said he had just seen “Spitzer” walking down Fifth avenue ( he said “don’t you respond when somebody talks to you”) .  i had not heard him I missed the ex-govenor ( and he said that he had said something to the ex-politico him and that he was ignored).

    I was on your tour yesterday. Enjoyed all of your cultural/entertainment references. Tell me the entire Salmon (sp?) Rushdie reference you mentioned. I’d like to get my buddies up here sometime to take the tour with me – they would also appreciate your info and humor. Thanks for the comedy!

    Thankyou Scott. Yes (sp) Salmon is a fish which runs in rivers and is pulled out by bears as a snack enmasse -Salman is a writer who once received a fatwa from the Ayatollah.

    I have met a wide varitey of just about everybody in New York City! But who is the one person in the world who would personify the impossibility of meeting and therefore in order to namedrop? Salman Rushdie of course.

    One evening I was at a Julian Schnabel opening at the Gagosian Gallery (cum museum) on west 24th street standing by the epic entryway and not a lookalike but the author of the Satanic Verses (that in Jerusalem ladies and gentlemen that is the Satanic Shicsos) and I said salman Rusdie and he said “yes” with a hesitant pause as if to say don’t you know when you meet Salman Rushdie your not supposed to scream out Salman Rushdie.

    In fact I met him a second time under the same cirumstances then with his affable other former model and current cable tv hostess Padma Lahtki and told him that I had lost his autograph and asked him to replace it and what I said about him on the bus (at one time there was production or an adaptation of one his works playing at the Apollo theater in Harlem) and now I cannot find either of his autographs.
