of course greg, why?

The keyboard player lives in my town, and his wife runs the theatre program I do. I'm also friends with his daughter.

That's awesome. Have you met him in person before?

Well actually, I didn't know he was famous until after I made this thread. I just saw the name on wikipedia, and was like, "Hey, I know the Rudess's." But no, I've never met him somehow.

Also Greg: Dee Snider? Jackie Gleason? Your town is awesome.

where are you getting this information

EDIT: The fitness guy that Jitka posted and Dee Snider are both from Massapequa. That's not my town. Jackie Gleason's wikipedia page doesn't say anything about either.

Oh, I've also played charades with Bill Irwin (Mr. Noodle).

That's why I never said what porn star and some other stuff. We aren't very good for history but some famous peeps were born around here.

Yeah, but if I say anything, it completely gives my town away. That's how famous it is.

I AM SHOCKED AND APPALLED

Anyway, yeah, I don't think my town has that much interesting stuff, but I'll have to look it up.

Oh, wait, Homer, turns out I did meet, him, I just didn't know it. Apparently he subbed as the accompanist one day for a show I was in at his wife's theatre thing. So, not only did I meet him, but he accompanied my singing.

Location: where
The Blues Brothers took place in and around my area, the western suburbs of Chicago. John Belushi and Jim Belushi grew up in Wheaton, the town that neighbors mine. They both went and graduated from the College of DuPage, which is just down the street from my house. The now defunct band Spitalfield had members that went to my high school, and one of my friend's dad coached a few of the member's soccer team when they were youngins. The actor who played Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump attended a rival high school in the downtown area of Glen Ellyn, Glenbard West. Glen Ellyn was the setting of the film Lucas starring Winona Ryder and Charlie Sheen. Ryan McPartlin went to my high school, Glenbard South. Billy Corgan, lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins, went to a rival high school of mine, Glenbard South. Phew.

Oh and sci-fi greg, could I get an autograph from the Silence of the Lambs guy?

oh and ace lives in shhhhhhhh

If you have a facebook, it's somewhat hard to be secretive on the Internet, is it not?

That might be kind of awkward. "oh hey, dad of girl I'm sort of friends with, a guy on the internet wants your autograph."

Apparently, John Nathans, who was a catcher for the Bridgeport Bluefish, lived in my town at some point. But I doubt that's true. Also, several artists and an actor who was in Jurassic Park. The actor died a few years ago.

We're apparently "Bicycle Capital of the Midwest".
This movie was based off Xenia.
Stephen King mentioned us in The Stand and The Talisman.
Aaaaaaaaand...
Xenia's mentioned by TMBG in Out of Jail.
Yeah.

Apparently a bunch of movies and TV shows were filmed in my old town. I say apparently because I never actually saw or heard about any filming going on. The Little River Band was named after that same town. Don't ask me who they are. I don't know. But apparently they're famous.
My current town is lame and has absolutely nothing of interest.

My town was a British encampment during the Revolution. Neat!
