Allen used to have wild orgies on his yacht. He got it so he could do what he wanted without fear of the parties being busted by neighbours or crashed by the paps.

All kinds of A list people, both in business and the entertainment community attended.

I remember this from a poster who had a FB? who worked on the yacht. The guy signed an NDA, but did tell the poster that much.

If he's still here, maybe he'll confirm/elaborate.

I know cancer is about as bad as it gets- but usually those who survive it and have a billion dollars as well, tend to be able to express some appreciation of life and their luck. He did not exude much of either. Strange man- and all the conspicuous consumption etc.... almost creepy in my opinion. Very lonely man.

I am far from a Mac geek, but 60 Minutes made no mention of the contribution Steve 'The Woz' Wozniak as well as Steve Jobs made with computers at all. It was as though 60 Minutes made it out to be that Microsoft is it and that PC's have always been just it and that there is nothing else! Jobs and 'The Woz' truly have a place within the history of computers and 60 Minutes was quite remiss to not at least mention that the once.

With that out of the way...

Paul Allen pinged to high heaven on this interview. I really thought he would speak of a partner at some point in the interview because he pinged just so much. He might be conflicted or maybe even bisexual I guess.

Was Ann Reinking a gold-digger?

by Anonymousreply 3804/18/2011

Annie was married to a guy from Seattle when she started fucking Fosse. When she was married to Allen, she was doing "Sweet Charity" so it wasn't like she had to work. All that and I suspect she would have given it all up to take back her performance at the Oscars which killed her movie career.

I'm with Charlie at r30. He seemed terribly creepy and unjustifiably bitter in the interview. He really didn't like being compared to Howard Hughes, but there are many similarities. Despite all of his interests and money, he seems miserable. I don't think he is gay...asexual maybe.

True, R36. And the truth is these guys were just in the right place first. Once the hardware was there, the software would have inevitably followed. If not Gates/Allen, someone else would have done it.

I saw the interview as well,op,but try as I might,I could not find a single attractive thing about him.

Maybe he's smart enough to know that no woman would genuinely want him, so he knows enough not to hand his money over to a marriage (because that's exactly what would be happening). Rich men tend to be delusional ("that hot young blond chick just has a thing for old, fat trolls, I swear!"), but computer nerds sometimes are a little brighter (if more socially awkward).

Or he could be gay, in which case I feel really bad for him. If he thinks -women- aren't into a dude that looks like that, look out...

The yacht is as ugly as he is. For all that dough, he couldn't find something beautiful?

by Anonymousreply 5204/18/2011

He doesn't know what beauty is. He was involved with some Latina actress for a few years, something Harring, from Mexico, but other than that I'm sure it's been hookers all the way.

You just know that some golddigger would and could deal with him - but he's in Seattle, home of the hairy armpitted fugly bluehaired not impressed chicks who find him like we do. A troll.

Now if he had a place in Marina del Rey & Malibu they'd be crawling all over hot coals to get at him.

Someone up thread said the wealthy computer nerds are smarter than the other sociopathic wealthy bastards - I don't think so. Look at the Oracle guy who just had the nasty divorce with his golddigger.

Look at Steve Jobs - his wife probably can't wait to spend all the money.

by Anonymousreply 5304/18/2011

The only thing I've heard about Allen is that his sister is extremely protective of him to a weird extent and that she likes to keep potential girlfriends away. It seems to me if Allen were motivated enough he could get round the controlling sister and date whoever he wanted, but who knows.%0D %0D Extreme wealth can be terribly isolating, and of course it tends to attract unscrupulous individuals. Rich people are often vulnerable to predators and sociopaths. Perhaps some day Allen may share Howard Hughes's fate of being surrounded by duplicitous users.

You see back when he got his start in business it was part of the "ritual" of business that you would insult your investors, customers, and employees and badger and berate them. It was how you convinced people that you knew your stuff, a shtick I think was borrowed from aggressive homeless panhandlers but very much current in Wall Street at the time. It just happened to coincide with Mr. Allen's damaged personality, which provides such drama naturally.%0D

Even a golddigger would have a hard time sharing a bed with him.%0D %0D He recently put out a memoir which depicts him, unintentionally I assume, as a totally uninteresting non-entity who loves to name drop.

I tried to google Paul Allen after reading this thread and it seems that he's got a few issues.

1. His sister is super overprotective of him, I believe she vets who he is allowed to go out with.

2. His teeth are disgusting.

3. He is a backer of many many movies and loves celebrities. He loves to associate with celebs, loves to back movies (not as a producer but as one of the money bags who give the producers money).

4. He let Angie and the brats live in one of his French homes for free....I'm sure he's backed one of her movies or one of Pitt's movies or more than one.

5. His need for celeb admiration is creepy, it's as creepy as Hearst who forced actors to PERFORM skits for him or else.

Paul Allen asked me and my friends for money back in 1979. But even if we had KNOWN that he would become one of the richest people in the world, the equity interest he offered in return was so small it STILL might not have been worthwhile. Naturally he berated us for not giving it to him and for being generally stupid and unworthy. But I didn't have any money and I could only have gotten my share from my father. My father I thought would have required more time to check it out than Allen wanted to give (48 hours). Later I found out my father might have done it because he already knew who Paul Allen was. But Allen's demeanor, his three piece suit in 80 degree weather, his stench, his refusal to explain what he would use the money for or how he would make profits were my first exposure, at age 18, to the way business is conducted on the money end.%0D %0D %0D

His Seahawks are SWEET! He seems to be a humble kind of guy from what I see.

A very rare occurrence of uber private Paul Allen allowing himself to be photographed at a Seahawks game with a date, and actually smiling. Yes, billions and billions will get you arm candy. Could he at last have found the right lucky woman?!

There is another rare news item concerning the Allen brother and sister team. Jody Allen is stepping down as CEO of her brother's company, Vulcan, in Seattle, where employees have been posting scathing reviews of her on (a good read). The security obsessed pair is nearly always treated with kid gloves by local media, and gossip is hard to find (except on DL of course.) I had never heard of Paul Allen until I saw this thread and find him oddly fascinating (the secrecy, the spending, the failed investments to the tune of $12+billions, etc.)

People here in the Northwest have known for years that Paul Allen is a major peter puffer. He has a reputation up in Vancouver BC as a major curb troller.

So help me, I couldn't imagine having sex with him, even for a million bucks.

I just couldn't.

[quote]My sister worked for him at Vulcan. The rules on how to interact with him are incredibly detailed. One example: if he's in an elevator and it stops for you to get on you weren't allowed in.

I have to call bullshit on this. I used to work in downtown Bellevue, Wash., in the same building (same floor even) where Vulcan had its first offices. One morning, I got in the elevator & noticed this guy wearing jeans & a House of Blues sweatshirt. A woman got on after me & said "Hi Paul!" He seemed like a nice, down-to-earth normal guy—well, as normal as a guy who at the time was worth $30 billion could be ;)
