Uncle Glen Working At The Wherehouse in Long Beach

 It's the annual Rip-Off Sale at the olde Wherehouse Record store in Belmont Shore, CA!
 For authenticity, they have a genuine hippie at the cash register.  It's Uncle Glen.
 The checkout line.
 They made me the Assistant Manager a few days before Christmas.  The FIRST job I was given was- FIRE the hot blonde chick!  Can you imagine??
 Uncle Glen enjoys the latest disco music.  Is that Lou Reed on the wall?
 If I only had a Time Machine...
 This was our manager during the heist of the century.
Even though I refused to fire her, your hot blondes can sure get camera-shy!

Musical Confidential: "I Was The Opening Act For The New Zoo Review!"

I wrote and performed this musical in shopping malls and schools for the deaf all over Southern California.  It was for Denalee Productions.  My old Pal, Edgar Bullington was a member of Denalee as well- that's how we first met.  The show made it as far as the Pilgrimage Theatre and then...  Well, who can say? 

I HAD to poke around backstage and check out the New Zoo Review costumes and props.  Henrietta Hippo was filthy.  She had dirt caked all around her nostrils.  When I looked inside I could see slime mold all over her entire belly which was melting down into the black abyss of her foam rubber legs.  I can't begin to describe the smell.  Ya gotta respect Children's Theatre!

The promotional sticker that you see was handed out to the gleeful kiddies.  Those were the days...
