Wonder What the Poor People Are Doing Today?

Well, for one thing, we’re not shopping for boats with Steven Spielberg. Let me note that while I don’t normally care what the rich and famous do, today I’m a tad jealous. OK, more than a tad.

I like boats. And motorcycles. Could care less about cars or houses. I’d like to have a sailboat big enough to sail around the world. Comfortably. I’ll never have have one. I’m over it.

Steven Spielberg, on the other hand, likes big boats with motors that destroy the environment. I have no problem with Mr. Spielberg buying any darn thing he wants, he earned every nickel he’s got. And he wants a new boat.

This is his old boat.


It’s 282 feet long and was custom built for him. It cost $185 million. Just a little more than my wonderful wife’s car.

And Mr. Spielberg has reached the point in life where, well, it’s like this …

Not because of the shark, his 282 footer could probably fend off Jaws, but because he wants one.

He’s dropping a tad over $200 million on his new boat, it’ll be 300 feet long. Haven’t seen any pictures of it, but it will be nice. No sails, but nice nonetheless.

Spielberg and his family actually use their boat for more than parties.

In 2013, the director, his wife Kate Capshaw, 61, and their seven children took the yacht on a 30,000-mile round-the-world cruise, stopping at some of his most notable film locations. They included Shanghai where he shot Empire Of The Sun and Hawaii where he made Jurassic Park.

Like I said, I’m jealous.

If you’d like to take his current little boat for a spin, it’s for rent. You can rent it for a mere $1.25 million. You get it for a week. We’re cutting back on eating out and I’m not buying new clothes for the winter this year.

    I guess I’m a pretty poor Jew compared to this. My nightclub property would often gross just $900 an hour during show events here, leaving me far in the dust of Mr. Speilberg’s business empire…

      I am not offended or irritated, but why do you find it necessary to mention your religion and the fact that you run a “nightclub” in virtually every single post? It seems to have absolutely no relationship to this topic.

        Everything is always about Paul.

      • Paul Hooson

        I like to joke about it…It’s the stereotype thing.

      • Brian Brandt

        I think it’s just part of his shtick.

      When did he marry Malcom McDowell?

      • Paul Hooson

        He was very good in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE…

      With very little photoshopping it could morph into Woody Allen and Mia Farrow.

      Sadly, this why I like girls about 30 years younger than me. Playing in the bedroom with a much younger woman is good for the soul of men 60 or over. There’s a few younger women who get into the role play of having an older man in their life, where it really makes them hot. It’s a great bedroom fantasy…

        Yet another story that is not about you

        • Paul Hooson

          This story better involve me…I don’t want her in bed with someone else when I can be there instead…This is one girlfriend of mine I had for four years, who even lived with me. You tell me if a girlfriend like this isn’t worth the efforts of a 60 year old man…Steven Spielberg may like boats, but I love young women…

            Clueless to the end. Stephen Spielberg and his boat purchasing decisions have nothing to do with you, your life, your business, your girlfriend, your religion, yet somehow you believe that it does.

            Like everything else that is posted here you believe that this is not about the actual subject but rather that the author has created the article to elicit further details about your life from you. Your egocentrism is remarkable, if only for its cluelessness.

            They are both living the dream.

    Is that other guy Mark Zuckerberg? He seems to have picked up some nice arm candy.

      I think they are the son and daughter.

    So I’m confused is this piece about class envy(yours)or irony?
