    Will Ferrell Talks Autographs on the Nerdist Podcast

    I always find it fascinating to hear celebs speak about the hobby even if it's often critical. Ferrell offers his view starting at the 52:30 (including a shoutout to one of the biggest characters in the Boston graphing scene).

    From the stories I read, I never got the notion that Ferrell was bad at signing, just that he hated regulars. But he does makes good points. The way some of the pros act makes me embarrassed to be an autograph seeker. If a guy doesn't sign, then let it go. Don't follow him around town, and when they do sign don't scream WILL, CAN YOU SIGN THIS? WILL, CAN YOU SIGN THIS? I'M A BIG FAN! CAN YOU SIGN THIS?.

    I know I might as well me talking to a wall, but whatever.

    no, somebody told these guys that "blue" can be reproduced (from photo copies, printers etc...) and they think if you are using blue especially on blanks that your going to print out 100 copies and re-sell them on ebay. i heard it many times and asked it to be explained to me and that was the answer i got.

    then you have this...........

    It looked like Yu was trying to get the attention of the cop he passed. I would have just called the cops if it was me.
