Camera phones popping up in front of me while I am trying to enjoy an event. So annoying! I luv taking pix but I always make sure I’m not blocking someones view. I try to anticipate the shot and stand behind the crowd.
Cheers

This has become an increasingly prolific behavior at concerts, restaurants etc.
I was recently at the "Music goes Bang" show & could not see many of the performances

Because of the many people holding their phones in the air to film the entire concert
I had to say something to the very rude people doing this a couple of times
when they held those damn phones right in front of my face.

The cell phone issue has become indicative of a current lack of manners & etiquette
that is a generational issue, I for one, never take my phone to meals, family time, movies etc.

I find nothing more rude then a person taking out a cell phone to take a call or text
during a meal, movie etc.

Times sure have changed & not for the better.

There was a study done that showed that people that spend their time focused on recording an event don't remember the actual event that they attended.

Somewhat on same subject above, here is editorial by Koop Kooper of Cocktail Nation on the digital world

Cocktail Nation:Digital Nerds

Unfortunately people do go out of the house and bring the digital world with them to the annoyance of others.

Went to a christmas program at my grandchildrens school this evening. We were seated in the 3rd row and some fool in front of us held his notebook up to record the 1rst performance. When he started to do the same for the 2nd song I said to my wife in a stage whisper “that knucklehead with the notebook doesn’t realize that he’s in the front row” He turned and gave me da stinkeye but he kept the notebook on his lap for the remainder of the evening. Yea!

George Clooney, What a di$%!!

Fans warned to stay away from George Clooney and new wife Amal at their Lake Como villa... or face a $600 fine
By RACHEL MCGRATH FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 5 April 2015

He lapped up all the attention when he tied the knot in Venice six months ago.
But now George Clooney wants to make sure sightseers stay away from him and his wife when they're in Lake Como.
And he has the support of local authorities - with the town mayor warning that anyone who bothers the actor, his wife or his pals or sets foot on his property faces a hefty fine.

I got to disagree with you on that one Skipman, even celebrities
deserve a modicum of privacy at home, they can't be expected to be accessible 100% of the time
that is just presumptuous of the public & press to expect it.

Well that is true but as a superstar he should know that people are going to
go nuts wherever he is.
Heck when these actors DON’T have people fall all over them they get a team
of people they pay to get them back into the limelight so people will again
fall all over them.

Soooo he knowing that this is going to be a problem should not buy a house smack
dab in the middle of the public he wants to avoid.
He surly has the funds to buy an island if he wanted and then there would not be
a problem, or at least a gated home / compound.

Yes everybody has a right to privacy.
I think the question is do some have more rights than others to well whatever they want.

This reminds me of when people had to look away when the king passed by.

I agree with you ATP that celebs deserve their privacy at home but I side with Skip, when a celeb is in public- that privacy will vanish. Comes with the territory
Cheers fellas

Ha!
Looks like he has both a Mexican Compound and an Island all to himself.
And a private jet, Private diners at the Whitehouse, box seats everywhere.

Man this guy gets more privacy than you and I do that's for sure.

Yeah that would be the 1% bad in the pool of awesome that his life holds.

Guess you need to take the bad with the good, good, GOOD, GREAT, AWESOME.

That may be why some quit acting shortly after they get known.
Would you trade your spot for his life?

Would need to get rid of the new wife and go back
to Stacy Keibler.

His new wife's head down looking coyly through stringy hair pose
is all she's got.

I would not want to be famous ever, so no I would not trade places with him. I do not want to be in the limelight or have people following me around. I would hate having people walk up to me like they know me and magazines writing true and false things about my life. No amount of money would make that worth it to me, but to each their own.

As for having lots of money and islands and stuff, sign me up!
