My Top 10

My Top 10

Funny thing, my top 10 concert list looks a lot like Paco’s! The usual suspects only the venues have changed. These are really in no particular order… Radiohead @ the Gorge at George Luna @ the Showbox R.E.M. @ Bumbershoot then the follow up private show at the Crocodile Cafe. Catherine Wheel @ What was...

Hungry?

"God, there are a lot of hungry people in the world and right now I am one of them, can I have something to eat?"

Green Monster

Evidently the horses got chilly and were afraid of the dark...

chip teeth

I was standing at the open door of an art gallery near the end of the reception. I was having a friendly chat with a beautiful girl that was interested in me “painting” her when out of my peripheral vision I see a nasty not to mention smelly tongue snaking its way up around my...

i’m freezin’!

My brother and I were walking thru downtown one night. It was a pleasant evening and we were on our way out someplace. Some tall black dude was walking down the same street in our direction appearing to be caught up in his own world. We had no idea he even saw us at all...

i like shorty’s

I like Shorty’s Coney Island. It is fun and they have good beer and Chicago dogs to die for! Scary clowns everywhere and some cool video games too! I frequented the 5point cause of location so I have become rather fond of it too. I am a go-out-aholic so I really love a lot of...

im just doing this once so it might be long…

First job: seeding and watering a several acre field for a federal water district, I was 12. Second job: paperboy, I got around the ‘hood and I was well liked. Third: oldest existing business in our town, jewelry, fine china, crystal and stuff like that, after school in a mall everyday. I loved it there,...

saab 900s

Not a very outstanding car. Got it from the car dealer I was working for at the time, a good deal! Only thing that sticks out is the trip some of my friends made to see me during new years… we drove around a lot and “someone” was kissing every d**n girl in sight! There...

red geo tracker

Bought this car to have a reliable and cheap transport while I was away for college. I liked this car a lot. 4wd, great gas mileage, girls loved it too! It had a nice system too, grad present… this car was a freeway car, not off road at all. I remember one time driving thru...

Black Buggin’

Building and collecting several VWs to get the perfect car… I was obsessed… I drove a red bus-pimp-restored & sold for capital, a yellow bus, same fate… I am told that both of these are still up and running even today! I guess my dad & I did a good job fixing them up! No...

bump in my ride.

Okay everybody here goes the car parade. In my lifetime I have owned many motor vehicles… most of them manufactured by VW. Let’s start at the beginning. I had $400 that was converted to a 1971 super beetle, my first ride, and a piece to say the least! It took my dad and myself several...
