Take The A Train


When The Red Line had an A train and a B train. Art by Douglas Klauba. TTAT was the sequel to "Rapid Transit". That's me in the top illustration, back when I had a lot of hair. Doug even got my nose right.

Odd Little Appearances and RIP Al Svoboda



Al and Jill Svoboda put this last one out, and I found out that Al passed away two weeks back down in Florida. Shane and Amy Bugbee put out the top newspaper and  I'd pick up my copies at a porn store underneath the el at Wells and Lake. Olden days.

Readings at Volumes Bookcafe This Friday 07/07/17

I may not be coming to these readings, as it is a fairly long trip by public transportation, last month I left the house at 4PM and got home at 1AM. Wicker Park to South Stickney Township, guys. It's a nice enough place and I hope Bad Grammar Theater does well there. I'm posting a shot from last month and the last two photos I took at Forte.

FIRST LOOK AT MY SCAR BACK IN 1990



In between Cast #4 and Cast #5, I was told to air out my scar and give my arm some rest, as by the time it was all over I had been wearing casts for 291 days. Here I am at the World Horror Convention in Nashville, March of 1990. A year after being hit by the car.
