    I'm a complete no-one, both online and off. No tv or papers or mentions, less than 100 social media followers. The several vids I had on Youtube a while back probably had a dozen views in total. I've released two instrumental albums, made a total of about 90 bucks across both of them.

    This is the standard for people living in a large city though. More people = less social per person, because it isn't possible/feasible to remember everyone.

    I appeared on local news a couple of times, and twice in national TV. But it wasn't really something important.

    I've played music on TV. I've also had articles written about my band.

    Opened for a band called Strike Anywhere (from the old Tony Hawk video games).

    Also played shows with a band called IFarm, the lead singer became Obama's photographer...

    Edit: He was the first official videographer of the White House and Creative Director for Senator Bernie Sanders's 2016 presidential campaign

    I won a coloring contest at the age of 8 when the circus came to town

    I am not sure these count, but you can decide:

    1. I was interviewed when I worked at a collectibles shop in Pike Place Market (Seattle) about the sudden demand for Magic Johnson cards after it was revealed he was HIV positive.
    2. In that same store I also interacted with Harry Anderson (the Judge on the TV series Night Court) routinely, and sold a Cal Ripken rookie card to Kevin Bacon.
    3. I have had dinner with Neil Gaimen, Terry Pratchett, George Takei (Oh my!) and Clive Barker (four times).
    4. I made a joke as I was leaving a conference room that made Candice Bergen laugh out loud.
    5. I taught Oprah Winfrey how to use Email and the Internet (this is not made up, I really did). I also got hugs from her on several occasions.
    6. I had a forty minute conversation about family with Jeff Bridges over coffee.
    7. I told John Krikfalusi that Ren & Stimpy was genius, but another cartoon he did was fucking creepy (foreshadowed the future apparently).
    8. I stared like an idiot in the camera of a news crew when they asked me if I was excited about Batman Forever during the midnight premier.
    9. I met Joe Rogen at an aftershow and talked about MMA for 15 to 20 mins.
    10. I have had short conversations with John Leguziamo & Gregory Hines on the street waiting on cabs.

    I don't know that any of these made me famous for any amount of time. But they were pockets of time with very famous people.

    Also, for fun... one of the above is actually a lie. The rest are true. I'll let you guess which one.

    I used to always hang out at the park that was nearby, loved that place and all the street performers.

    Actually was an almost child actor, did a lot of commercials and get briefly into modeling but as it was mostly pushed by my parents the moment I had the chance to drop it I did. Aside from that though I know more than a few famous to semi famous people but purely on a friend level. I don't get the appeal of fame it seems like a giant hassle.

    One time a video from my guild was posted on twitch and got 30k views, Allcraft spent like an hour discussing it. In the video I say "I'm surprised he made it through last week"

    Asmongold tried to pass us off as a Heroic Jaina guild but Preach was like "nah, they are one of the top mythic guilds" We put that sequence at the end of our Mythic Jaina kill video.

    Unless having people on MMO-champion calling me too harsh as a moderator, then I am not famous or infamous.

    Im so not famous and unknown in general that if i were to die in my appartment, they would probably find me several months later when they come in person asking me why i didnt pay rent for the last 3 months.

    And i like it this way!

    You're a mod? I thought you were just a very active poster.
