Its Tiffany again i want to write this for the close encounters of a David kind on the page =)
David Arquette was in town for a WcW event and my brother wanted me to go to get autographs at the hotel. I was so excited the day of the event. I got there to find out we had missed David by 10 minutes. I was crushed! We of course we getting a bunch of WCW stars. When 3 other people arrived i heard somebody say IT'S DAVID ARQUETTE!!! I was like where and i turned around and saw David walking with another guy i run up to him and he says Hey..Nice to meet you and im so shy...i am blushing and i ask sign my video? and he takes the video and the other guy says this is going to be a cool collectible and David say yeah it is. I am so happy and I say thanks and run to where all our stuff is. I pick up my magazine picture as my bro runs back from the car. He signs my brothers Cd cover and My magazine pic (my second item signed!!!) He takes pictures with me and my brother and walks in the hotel to the resturant. I am so happy. We went home and came back later that night. I got 4 more autographs from David.(6 autographs total!) I was feeling guilty about wasting his private time. I said thank you for signing so much It really means alot to me. He smiles and says my pleasure and pats me on the back and walks towards the resturant. I was so happy i felt if i was going to scream.
I want to thank you again for being such a sweetheart! Your personality is like a gem and I hope you always stay that way. Make more movies and stay sweet. I am always going to be your fan!! Never ever listen to those people out there that don't like your movies. Keep your head high. I wish you the best in all you do. Also tell courtney That she is one of the best actresses out there. She is very pretty and talented.
David on Conan
By Katy Arquette
Last October, I got tickets to Late Nite with Conan
O'Brien. None of my close friends could go so I
invited a friend from AOL! Well, you had to be at the
theater by 4:00 so after school I had to run to the
train station and take the LIRR to Manhattan. I got
out of Penn Station and caught a bus. But the bus was
sooo slow and I was on 33rd st and had to get to 52
st!! So by the time we got to 41st it was like 3:45
and I was almost crying!! I got off the damn bus and
starting running for my life!! It was sooo funny now
that I think of it! I ran 10 blocks for David
Arquette!! And I finally got to the theater and I was
sweating and all out of breath but I made it!! They
started letting people in and got to us and said, "
Only 5 more..." and thank god, we were one of the
last 5!!" So we went in and sat down the show began
and then David came on!!! I was in shock!!!! He did
all crazy things and then during the band, I just
stared at David sitting in the chair. Then as the
show credits were rolling, I started waving to David
and he saw me and gave me the cutest wave back!! I
was sooo happy I was gonna cry!!! =-) It was the
cooleset day and I love Davey!!!!
Dream with the Fishes
By Summer Morgan
My sister told me that this movie called
Dream with the Fishes was going to be shown in a
theater close to our house. She said that David
Arquette was the star and he would be there. So i
said sure ok it will be fun because I like David
Arquette. So we went and on the way into the theater
I saw him just standing next to the door and I told
my sister. Then we sat down and watched the movie.
After the movie he went on stage with the director, I
forget his name. The whole time he was on stage he
was looking at my sisters camera, we were sitting
pretty close to the stage. Then while we were walking
out we got his autograph on pictures of him we got
out of magazines. Then I took a picture of him with
my sister. Then we walked outside and he leaned up
against the wall and smoked. I was surprised nobody
noticed who he was! My sister took another picture of
him and that was it. It was really fun!
ear2000 in Spain by K. A. from
They played at CHESTERFIELD CAFE. I was in 5
concerts, but they played 9 times. My times were:
28/june, and 1, 3, 5, and 6 of July.
I went to the first concert cause I love the SCREAM
movies, so I wanted to meet David Arquette. I went
with one of my friends who loves him (She�s crazy
about him). I met Adam the first day but we talked
just very little. That day I got my SCREAM movie
signed by David. Cool!!! Next day I met Adam in the
Street while I was going to the place, and then we
were talking. The next Friday (night) and next Sunday
(morning) we showed him the city. he�s very nice, and
very talented in piano. He invited us to take a drink
in his room .
David is really cool. I asked him if he were going to
be in SCREAM 3 and he told me that he thought so. He
gave me a clown nose that he wore in a concert (he
was disguised as a clown) and gave my friend a small
mirrorball. I have to say that he�s really in love
with Courteney. Can you believe that Adam was the one
that told me they were a couple? I told him " I love
Courteney Cox, David�s girlfriend in SCREAM" and he
told me " and in real life".
Gabe is also really nice. I was talking to him about
Movies cause I love Cinema and he told me that he
liked PEDRO ALMODOVAR, a very famous director from
Spain. He also introduced me to his girlfriend and I
tell u a secret... He always plays without shoes.
I�m sorry, but I didnt talk to Ryan really much, I
think he�s a hard worker, and his girlfriend is
beautiful and really funny.I didnt talk really much
to Sam either. He�s cool too.
Last day, Their manager gave us two EAR 2000 T-
Shirts, and they signed them to us. We also got our
CDs signed. That night was really cool, everyone
having a fun time.
They were really nice, Ill never forget those days.
Filming of "The Runner"
by Joseph Griffin
*Editors note: Joe happens to have been be one of my students!
Part of the movie "The Runner" was filmed at my Dads
Grocery Outlet store. I was surprised at the long
hours it takes just to film. People got there at
five A.M. and didn't finish untill three A.M.!! David
was always laughing and playing. He had a cot on
wheels that he'd ride around in....bringing over a
huge water cooler offering drinks to the crew and me.
We said, "No thanks, we didn't want water" and the
next thing you know he was back. He bought soda pop
and chips for all of us instead! Also, while filming
between breaks I was peeking over the candy aisle at
Courtney Cox, she saw me and whispered for me to
throw her down a candy bar!
In a scene in the movie David and Courtney are in the
check out line of the store and one of those annoying
automated registers with the monotone voice was
stating the price of everything, Davids part was to
ask the clerk if she could turn the machine off (she
responds not possible) then he mocks jokingly in his
own voice the register.......grabs a toy ring throws
it in the check out pile and says in the register
voice, "One wedding ring a dollar ninety nine - Will
you marry me?" And Courtneys part was to accept, then
he throws a bunch of cash up into the air, they run
out and he says, "Now let's buy you a REAL wedding
The Freaky Parade
by Roger Stanley
Thank you for writing me back. I am a
from Texas living in Prague. This time last year,
David was here filming "Ravenous". While they were
here, I spent alot of time with Joe Running Fox
"George", and quite a bit of time hanging out with
David. We had some good times. I would like to stay
in touch with David. I talk to Joe all of the time.
I will now tell you a little Dave story
One night Joe and I were at a friend of
mines' sports bar here in Prague. We met up with
David, and David had two sycophantic admirers with
him. They were very typical of the American kids who
end up staying here for some time. They were misfits
in the States (as most of us are who live here).
These kids travel around Europe with backpacks, and
after buying $7 hamburgers in Paris, and $8 beers in
Germany, they think that Prague is paradise. The
beers are .60 cents here, and you can survive on
hotdogs that cost about the same. Plus, this is
Bohemia, after all- and you can be as weird as you
want here and go unnoticed. I don't think that there
is anything out there that Prague has not seen.
These two particular "fans" were just
your average young dumb Americans living here for a
short period to be cool, and tell their friends that
they lived in Europe. These folks never learn much,
if any, Czech. They only go to American
establishments. They only hang out with others of
their kidney. They hang out at coffee shops, drink
pots of coffee, smoke countless packs of cigarettes,
read and write postcards, and think they are Kafka.
It is very Gothic here and romantic here, and they
get caught up in it all - until they get recalled by
mom and dad, who cut off the funds. I think you get
The two who had attatched themselves to
David were as follows: she was about 18, with a burr
haircut, many tattoos, and countless piercings. I
think the hair was at the burr stage because
previously she had the Sinead O'Connor -
concentration camp 'do, but it was in the growing out
/ transitional stage. She was doing all she could to
be rebellious, but she was just trying tooooo
hard, which made her just sterotypical. The
stereotypical Junior Feminist / Anti - Establishment
/ Anarchial / Rebel. He, on the other hand, I found
to be quite fascinating. He was extremely clean - cut
and fastidious to the point of being natty. He wore
and a button - down with loafers. He looked more like
the Preppies of my generation, than the Generation X
Nuvo - Hippies that are so common now. He spoke very
properly, and appeared to be from some old East Coast
money.He had the Connecticut Ivy League accent, and
appeared to be totally out of his element in Prague.
This was accentuated by the fact that he was
extremely clean, with narely a hair out of place, and
he was hanging around with a girl who looked and
smelled as if she hadn't bathed in quite some time.
What was so fascinating about him was the fact that
he had a major keloid scar running down the length of
his carotid artery on the left side of his neck. It
was obvious that he had a stroke at some point in his
relatively short life. The stroke had obviously
paralyzed the right side of his face, and he spoke
only from the left side of his mouth. What came out
of that side of his mouth was this snobbish, East -
Coast, Ivy League bullshit. And this palaver spilled
out incessantly. It was very difficult and painful to
watch and listen to him talk. He was like Thurston
Howell on acid.
Well, after spending way too much time
listening to "Thurston" talk, and with Sinead
throwing in her occaisional barbs, I suggested we go
to another place in an attempt to lose them. When I
suggested to David and Joe that we go, the two freaks
thought that "we" included them. David is too nice to
tell them to beat it - so they tagged along.
So, here we are, David, the two Freaks,
Joe the Indian with hair down to his waist, and
myself, walking through the streets and alleys of
Gothic Prague. At one point, I fell off the Group,
and walked behind just watching "The Parade". As my
best friend Evan and I have been known to do since
childhood, I broke into a song - quite loud. It was
"The Soft Parade" by The Doors.
It was a very surrealistic scene, and
one I will never forget.

*Editors note: this portion is written by
to David himself via Celebrity E mail:
"finally you walked out, and
walked right past me
and i was like totally frozen. But then my friend
drug me over and we said hi, and i mumbled a whole
bunch of crap too, but i had no idea what i was
saying. You kept shaking my hand and you took a
picture with us. You kept looking at me with this
expression on your face that said "Are you ok?" or at
least that how i interpreted it. But you were sooo
nice to me"
