I want to see him go! Who can fix him?
Love him! He is a disaster. Do you know what the mechanism is? It may just be a simple vibrating part that can be replaced, or is it a shaft that lifts him up and down? Jeeze, I'm making that ugly little guy sound sexy.
I have no idea, Rusty. There is a pretty sweet 3-D photography museum in Portland now. Sadly, there were many things I just assumed would be there forever and waited too long to go see. I wasn't extremely social, I was kinda in an alcoholic stupor the whole time I lived there. But, it does seem everyone at the time knew someone in common. Don't know if it is still the same. Guess I've had that experience once, lately. I once met a girl at a job in Portland and we figured out she was my second cousin once removed, or something of the sort. Maybe everyone is kin here. : )
Re. Kitschy Portland; we did have the Velveteria, apparently it closed and moved away. But keep a look out for it down there, apparently they are moving to someplace warmer. http://velveteria.com/
This older video of one of her former locations is thoroughly LOL and brings me back to my childhood, not sure I included it up top.
I don't think so at this time. I need to re-connect with Stevie, but it has been over 12 years since we spoke, she may not remember me. We have a friend in common, the former proprietor of Portland's now defunct and in storage U.F.O. museum. Gee, I wish I could share both places with you all more effectively. I met both these people when I was about 16, and they both were just the cat's meow to me. I'm going to ask Lex, the U.F.O. museum guy, if he has any more on Stevie, and perhaps he needs his own entry for his works.
Oh, Stevie's 24 hour Church of Elvis was mentioned in Chuck Palahniuk's book, Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon. Chuck seems like such a sweetie, and we have a couple friends in common. He interviewed my friend, Keni Cyr-Rumble of Recycled Gardens, which is now gone but which helped fund POPPA, Inc., a spay and neuter group for the pets of low income people I've been volunteering for for some years and am now on the BOD of. Plus, he knew my friends with the Van Calvin Mannequin shop, which you would have loved, it was also in his book. I haven't been able to reach him to find out if our mutual friend, Russ, is still alive. Oh, Portland, I swear, everyone knows the same people! It is like the Kevin Bacon game! LOL
OMG, Mark, that salmonella story is just horrifying! Was the event called "Blood Pooping Days" after that?
Damn, we need a farmersexchange where I live! I'd hang around the back door waiting for new guy farmers to emerge.
I've seen him before!
I remember those gross samples of nail color shaped like finger nails the lipsticks remind me of. And the lipsticks. The little loops and hanks of fake hair in hair color sections of beauty supply stores are great, too.
LOL, maybe funny on eyeglasses
I remember that skit, for sure. I love the bad tattoo site! Maybe the owner was combining their 3 favorite things in the world into one tattoo.
I think she said it was some sort of lemon chocolate combo. Sounded good to me.
