memorable celebrity encounters?
1. Leonard Nimoy: Mr. Speck was in a pedestrian crosswalk on Sunset Bou-
levard. Leonard Nimoy: poet, photographer, playwright and the voice of "The
Ballad of Bilbo Baggins."
2. Christina Aguilera: t was at the vet with an ex-girifriend and her cat. We

upcoming album Phrazes for the Young. The upbeat single opens with irreverent synths and playful keyboards.
