DNA studies and archeological research attempt to describe what the young – almost forgotten until discovery – Pharaoh of Egypt looks like. But here is a likely reasonable likeness, standing before you as noble and straight as possible. Along with a scale, illuminated model of what Howard Carter saw when he cracked the seal with Lord Carnarvon’s backing.
I have stories which make Jimmy Buffett seem sober, Keith Richards cringe and Hugh Hefner blush… (well at least two of those are true) This is my homage to the crusty septgagrnarian and erstwhile Publisher and *cough “sexual liberator ?)”— I don’t look or read his magazine, nor say it’s name aloud, but I do admire his vast selection of smoking jackets. note: pipe, cravat/ascot, and hair/eyebrows to complete the masquerade.
Sidenote: this was the last time my face with cleanly shaven which I found to be rather uncomfortable.
Further sidenote: Kenny Trobman vastly upstaged me with his Ron Jeremy costume that year at the Eastside Club Tavern
As a tour host at Star Sand Private Beach Club on island of Guam. “Landlocked” by Andersen Air Force base and, as such, closed down after a terrorist incident you may have heard about in New York City.
Note: The pale one is Cmdr. “Magnum” – then entirely a civilian.
Renegade lobbyists! Are you surprised he let me this close to two different governors of Washington State? For the record: Locke and Gregoire. Where is the security detail anyway? Plus, I stole a pen each time.
Note: same jacket and tie i kept on stand-by at office for this purpose.
With Jay Stewart x 2 (representing Zhonka), Kevin one time (tag along), Gary something one time (representing Washington Association of Internet Service Providers i think), and Asst AG Hunter Goodman another time, others i can’t recall.
Los Cousins Banditos (not officially Spanish). Cousins Keiza and Tal along with brother Bob and me, showing significant incompetence in gun-handling ability (hasn’t changed for me but possibly for others whoa re more inclined in adult times).
Backstage with Danny Elfman after Oingo Boingo concert in SLC Fairground auditorium (or something), 1985 with Wall of Voodoo opening. Also enjoyed pleasant conversation with Steve Bartek.
Misters Elfman and Bartek have continued a long collaboration making soundtrack scores and music for film and television (especially collabs with Tim Burton, Peewee Herman and for The Simpsons and many more).
Also note: interesting intellectual property story about use of Oingo Boingo song in Fast Times at Ridgemont High movie will add at some point.
Note: Will attempt to remember to add a better copy of this photo at some point (scanned in early days at low-resolution)
