So You Want To Be a Celebrity

There was a time when being a celebrity was a highly privileged position. Those in that category were treated like royalty and respected. They were under strict orders from the studios to exhibit and maintain morality, dress well and use proper language. They stood out for those very reasons. There was a mystique about them that made them compelling.

Yes, there were active kinky hijinks behind the cameras but they were carried out discreetly, not openly acknowledged or bragged about. In public they presented themselves well and were proper in their conduct.

There were far less problems for celebrities then than now. Of course there would be the occasional stalking problem or an obsessive fan that had become a troublesome issue, but that too was dealt with swiftly and without much publicity.

Rumors would crop up now and then, created and circulated by people who, by creating the rumor, implied that they were close to that star by having such personal information. The bizarre stories got the attention they craved.

I became obsessed with the idea of playing a game of billiards with the late philosopher David Hume. But how? I stopped in the Los Medanos College Laboratory where biology students were preparing to roll out a cadaver to study and dissect.

I made my way over to a rarely used section of the lab, which dealt with time lapse and accidentally backed into a button on a warped wall, which caused a blinding flash.

Incredibly, I found myself in a large room with a single, over sized billiard table. The room was strangely Baroque in style. The door opened slowly and in walked a man wearing a brocade coat and a powdered wig. His nose was bulbous, his chin squat, yet there was a gentle quality in his face.
