Meh on the ship thing. I don't do cruises, large floating death traps scare me. Plus I am not sure that some wook naked on the front of the ship screaming I am the king of the world while trying to hold his pitbull over his head is something anyone wants to see. The jimps would throw a grand in to a convention/hotel type of thing where we are all at a resort for a week or so.Please tell Governor Christie of NJ to open the records

Re: Pool our Money to have a special furthur Show?#71976 2 years, 11 months agoHow about at the Bryce Jordan centre?
This way I think we might sell it out.
I would kick in a little extra to get the allman bros there too. Make it an all day event with an all star jam. Get Levon Helm and Robbie Robertson involved and maybe have it at Watkins glen next summer. Who would like to volunteer as head of the party planning commitee?Standing on the moon with nothing left to do
A lovely view of heaven but I'd rather be with you

Re: Pool our Money to have a special furthur Show?#72199 2 years, 11 months agoI found this article from 2007. I don't think $555 will cover it.
"How Much Is That Celebrity In The Window?" by Susan Donaldson James
Who's making a guest appearance at your private New Year's Eve party this year? Elton John, Robin Williams or will you settle for Tara Reid?
That all depends on your wallet and the value of your guest's star stock. In the thriving rent-a-celebrity business, the price tag for having a celeb drop by is a telling barometer of who's hot and who's not.
This week, the going rate for Tara Reid, the chaste blonde from the teen cult-classic "American Pie," fell precipitously on the private party circuit. Her asking price dropped from $35,000 to appear at a "Hooker's Ball" with shirtless cowboys to $3,500 for some private parties, according to Australian tabloids.
"The people who used to be in demand are the good deals today," says Dan Barrett, entertainment producer for Millionaires Concierge, which calls itself the "yellow pages of the rich and famous."
Reid is in good (or bad) company. Demand for Jessica Simpson and former husband Nick Lachey has gone the route of their three-year marriage -- down the tubes.
In an US Weekly survey of celebrity bookings in 2006, Simpson could command up to $400,000 for a private performance, and her ex went for $100,000. Today, the actress's price has fallen to $75,000, only a little more than Lachey's $60,000 a gig, according to Star Link Productions, which books celebrities for fundraisers and private parties.
Similarly, R&B and pop artist Usher, who once earned $1 million for a private appearance, can now get only $175,000, booking agencies say.
An increasing number of celebrities are relying on the private party circuit to enrich their paychecks. But as some, like Reid, see their star stock plunge, others are soaring in the lucrative and growing celebrity-for-rent business.
The hottest names garner the biggest price tags.
Mariah Carey earns a cool $3 million for a private appearance, up from $1 million in 2006, and Pamela Anderson's price has ballooned from $75,000 to $250,000.
Opulent affairs with rock heroes are common in hedge-fund central, New York City, and in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the stock-option windfalls of the dot-com era are still being spent.
Some of the top names in entertainment -- Elton John, the Rolling Stones and Christine Aguilera -- have also appeared at company-sponsored events. But as corporate indulgences have been reined in, the wealthiest executives are more likely to call in celebs for their own private parties.
In 2005, then Point Blank Solutions Inc.'s CEO David Brooks threw a lavish $10 million bat mitzvah for his 13-year-old daughter, Liza. He was later charged with fraud for allegedly bank rolling performances by Aerosmith, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Kenny G and the Eagles on the company dollar.
Brooks reportedly sent the company jet to fly in Aerosmith to Rockfeller Center's Rainbow Room and paid the group $2 million so that his nephew could play drums with the band, according to published reports.
Other celebrities such as the Beastie Boys, David Lee Roth and even Kiss' Gene Simmons have done the bar mitzvah circuit.
Last New Year's Eve, British pop star George Michael earned $3 million an hour singing for a Russian mining and lumber magnate. The gig was 75 minutes, and he was home in London by lunchtime, according to press reports.
Typically, a celebrity who charges $300,000 for a public performance can bill a private client $400,000, often demanding a jet and accommodations for his entourage -- plus lighting, food and instrument rental costs, according to booking agencies.Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

2007 was pre stock market crash those days/prices are long gone
still plenty of "old money" out there 83. I promise you that. But I think the days where fat pigs like Dennis Kozlowsky can have their companies pay for $1 Million dollar birthday parties and 3,000 shower curtains on their corporate credit cards may be dying. Of course Dennis K and I think his acccountant / partner in crime are now in jail mopping floors.
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
