A fool and his money

Recommended Posts

As per,

Nicolas Cage has managed to burn his way through his 150 million fortune. Mainly, but not only limited to 'investment' in housing.

The list of crazy stuff he bought is bonkers imho.

I quite like the shrunken pigmy heads and the mini-pyramid.

It's the same mad off the wall personality that's made the fortune as has burnt through it; like rock stars.

John Entwhistle always needed The Who to tour again because he burnt through all his money on a regular basis by buying loads of expensive shiny stuff all the time, he used to joke that he was addicted to Harrods.

So he bought everything except the fun stuff? If you're going to be an irresponsible tit, do it properly!

I always thought John Entwhistle was the guy who wrote 500 Bus Stops.

Oh well, might as well spend it on what you like. I don't understand the obsession with thrift on here really.

He used to live down the road from me in Bath, on The Circus not the Midford castle he bought later, a while back now and always felt a bit sorry for the way he seemed to have to constantly battle hair loss with one horrendous weave after another, he always just walked around like a normal local to be fair. Think he lives in Glastonbury these days.

Baltonsborough I believe...A mate of mine took a snapshot of him stepping into a local Cineworld from CCTV...

More importantly...how the fuck does Nicholas Cage amass 150 million quid?

Dollars (used to be a bigger difference!)

Pretty sure big stars command fees in the tens of millions for some films. He was a huge name for some years. So work constantly, multiple films a year, et voila.

Beautiful guitars...you're a man of class.

I know that. Don't tell the chicks, or I will do my back in again.:D

Actually the Martin is a D15, the plainest wooden box you have ever seen. Not available now. Plays nice though! I am a particular fan of the Gretsch instruments. One is a Jet, and the other is a Falcon in white, which amuses my friend's 3 year old, because she thinks it's God's guitar, because it is so shiny, and that makes me an angel in her eyes! When a 3 year old thinks you are an Angel, it is a good day!

Jesus. Even dollars seem excessive for a pretty average actor. I know there was Leaving Las Vegas but I'm with the ' even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day' way of thinking there. 

Ever see the remake of 'The Wicker Man' or 'Knowing? 

Comically terrible.

Had a great run with blockbuster movies, after Leaving Las Vegas, with Con Air, Rock and Face Off consecutively. Probably some sort of percentage deal would have yielded loads. The did Gone In Sixty Seconds, which was shit but, suspect he would have got a huge pay cheque as hugely bankable for action movies after the previous three. Captain Corelli's Mandolin was probably more pay dirt.

He's been in some good more serious stuff like Lord of War. I quite like the Bad Lieutenant remake, National Treasure and Season of the Witch.

Yes...that was a complete abortion of the original film.   An island only inhabited by females...ffs.

The original film...The Wicker Man... is a classic cult performance.  Brilliant.  I remember when it first came out. It was secondary to the main film 'Don't look know'....with Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie.

Then it was recognised for it's brilliance.

Do you remember the scene when the barmaid's daughter tries to seduce, from the next room, with her naked dancing? Brit Ekland refused to perform that scene...so they drove into Glasgow and picked up a local prostitute to perform the act. It's not Brit's arse in the film, but an unknown prostitute.   

Such an amazing film.

I remember her giving an interview where she said it wasn't her doing that. Might have been Desert Island Discs.

God she was a stunner in that film.

Don't look now scared the living bejesus out of me. That's quite the classic too.

      Thiscwas nearly in the Darwin Award thread but he managed to live through his little prank
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-42271150
      An internet "prankster" had to be freed by firefighters after cementing his head inside a microwave oven.
      West Midlands Fire Service said it took an hour to free the man after they were called to a house in Fordhouses, Wolverhampton.
      Friends had managed to feed an air tube into the 22-year-old's mouth to help him breathe, the service said.
      Watch Commander Shaun Dakin said the man "could quite easily have suffocated or have been seriously injured".

      A charity fears a British-Iranian woman held in Iran could have her prison sentence doubled following remarks made by the foreign secretary.
      Boris Johnson told a Commons committee that Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was arrested at Tehran Airport in 2016, was "teaching people journalism".
      The Thomson Reuters Foundation said she was seeing family and urged Mr Johnson to correct his "serious mistake".
      The Foreign Office said the remarks could not justify new charges.
      Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe is currently serving a five-year sentence after Iran tried her on charges of trying to overthrow the government. She denies all the allegations against her.
       
      heard her husband being interviewed on the radio about this. He was incredibly magnanimous given the potential damage the buffoon may have caused.
