Unexpected Treasures

I was organizing my office today (aka moving piles of crap from one stack to another), and I ran across a small cache of old photos...

My acting headshot at age 14 (taken by Randy):












My acting headshot at age 16 (taken by Randy):









Sam from
Hello Out There, the first play we were in together (taken by Randy).













Me as Pink from Alan Parker's film based on Pink Floyd's
The Wall. High school Halloween, age 17 (taken by Sam).













Me from the first Kings production Polaroids, about age 18. Although at that point I was producing and David Beach was directing, I'd written myself a cameo as Soldier #2. That's a guy who is comfortable and secure in his relationship, 180-degrees from where Sam was at the time (taken by Sam).












The back cover image from Zingo Magazine #1, an indie 'zine from late '82/early '83 (taken by Randy). Note the hat. I was Mr. Eighties Fedora Hat Guy. Mostly because I resonated with the 1930s/1940s retro vibe going on at the time. Note also that the men's double-breasted suit was back in fashion then...

For years... hell, for DECADES... I kept my issue of Zingo #1... not because I knew it was going to be worth something someday, but because my friend Todd did it. I wish I knew where it was today. I hate loosing things in moves.

I'm compiling a book of everything Zingo. It will contain ZM#1 as well as the newspaper strips and the 6-panel webcomics. Probably some other crap too.

These pics are fantastic and what I'll always remember, though they're somewhat torturous to those of us who were never asked to the dance...
