I don't know what got me to thinking about this, but anyway.

I have a really good friend who is a movie producer. And I mean he is a MOVIE PRODUCER!! This man is NO JOKE! He is probably in his late 60s to going on 70 even? He's actually kinda retired, but not really. He now works part-time as a senior advisor producer to other producers making movies. He has forgotten more about making movies than most people know, lol! And he is brilliant!

Anyway, what I find so interesting is, by being around people in the entertainment business most of my life, is how often they use disposable cell phones. It's like protocol. I mean, it's not like he doesn't have his own personal cell phone because he does. But he keeps these disposable cell phones lying around for other random calls he makes. He's got like 5 of them at a time, lol! He just gets his secretary to pick them up at Walmart, call in and register them under various names and addresses, and he's good to go. It cracks me up. Then when the minutes are gone on them, he throws them away and buys more. LOL!

I guess it makes a lot of sense when you are really famous and you have a lot of people on your tail, and you just need your privacy, ya know? You just want to be able to use the phone and call somebody, without any problems, right?

It may sound like a good idea and everything but I think that it might be a bad investment because the moment the disposable phone runs out you'll have to keep on buying more and more which could get expensive with money that you could of saved to buy other things ,and if that's what you want to do then that is fine and everything . But you might want to think about it before you do it .

Well . . . thing is, with SOME movie producers and rock stars and people like that . . . and I'm not saying they do, and I'm not saying they don't. But, ya know, sometimes, they might be married and want to call a girlfriend or something and they got nosey wives that check their call logs on their cells phones on the internet with their cell phone carriers and they just want to be discreet, ya know what I'm saying? Or maybe they want to order some party supplies and have them delivered to the set, and not have that call show up on their call log either. Just stuff like that.

And as far as the cost, when you're producing movies and selling millions of records, you don't really worry about what it costs. You can afford to light a doobie with a hundred dollar bill if you want to. (And I've seen them do it, haha!) And if you're not THAT big time, you can just buy one, and get more minutes for it when they run out. Toss it if someone acts curious, and get another one. lol!

And that's just what they do . . .

I think I remember reading somewhere that theives even sell these disposable cell phones on the black market by the box load for like $15 each. Crazy, isn't it?

That's $15 per phone, not box, teehee.
