    "Photographer Jim Marchese joined Springsteen’s 1981 tour for “The River” in Europe. 'When we got to a new town,' Marchese recalls, 'the joke was that there was a $5 tip for whomever in the crew spotted ‘the arches’ first,' ... where Bruce orders a meal."

    These famous relatives did grant permission for Madame Tussauds to dress their wax figures in such Christmas-inspired jumpers.

    "Interview" with Bela Lugosi - 1932

    Obviously rehearsed, but it is an unusual setting, for Count Dracula.

    This was edited out around 2:45: :D

    Dorothy West: Do you believe in vampires?
    Lugosi: Yes, three of them I married.

    It looks like Mark Twain just graduated from somewhere.

    Reminded me... My girlfriend chose to have her wedding on the same day I graduated, and I was her maid of honor. Graduation in the late morning, then change clothes for the wedding and take off.

    The car I was driving ran out of gas, not too far from home. I had to walk back in heels, exchange keys and take off immediately in another car, while my father retrieved mine. Everything went fine otherwise.

    Sorry, I digressed. :oops:

    Twain was born shortly after an appearance of Halley's Comet, and he predicted that he would "go out with it" as well; he died the day after the comet returned.
