I saw James tonight on the street on 2nd ave around 11th street. I've seen him before in that area, but years ago. tonight i didn't realize it was him until i was right there passing him. he had just looked up as i walked by because he was petting his small dog (not bug, i guess he died) ...... I've never said anything, respect his privacy and all. though this time is the first time i wish i woulda said something. but i just wasn't sure it was him til the last second.

most informative thing i can share is that he's just got a very normal guy, unremarkable presence. has the vibe of just a peaceful regular dude. it's a good bet his thoughts and concerns are a million miles removed from billy, the pumpkins and all that. i bet he could give a fuck.

so that's it. that's my story.

if i see him again i should say--- what? something like, James. Thanks for making that music back in the day. i respect how you've taken the high road since the breakup. all the best. take care.

Or you can just shut the fuck up and leave the guy alone like you did today.

If I ever saw a celebrity I admired (there are about two of them) I don't think I'd say anything because what could you possibly say that hasn't been said a thousand times before?

I'd just stare. And maybe drool a bit. And wet my pants.

Anyway, puddles of urine aside, I'm dead jealous!

Posting information about where he seems to live is really respecting his privacy.

if it was me i would have kidnapped his dog. I guarantee that hasnt happened to him before. that would definitely make an impression on him. After that id find him and tell him about how it was all a joke and me and him would hang out. then start a band called the exploding pumpkins cuz thats just a better name.

average quality typical underground beat, absolutely terrible mc that obviously has listened to entirely too much aesop rock and del tha funky homosapien without picking up even a fraction of their ability. course he could be an atmosphere clone, i dunno i never actually gave atmosphere a chance because everyone i knew who liked him never listened to hip hop in their lives. In fact, the only times I ever heard of him was in the sentance "I don't like hip hop at all except for atmosphere," and I'm like "Well in that case he/they/it probably sucks."

The only way this could be more lame is if it was on Craigslist New York's "Missed Connections" page.

Just say "hi, james" and keep walking or if you can compliment his dog, like you would any normal person.

Given that celebrities are everywhere in NYC (as pedestrians, or riding the subway), isn't it an unspoken rule that you don't go up to them and harass them, take pictures, etc?

I think if someone sang "don't wake me up till next tuesday" as they passed, he would probably smile. I mean, he seems like a nice guy if you aren't interrupting dinner.
