we live, we learn…well, not all of us (a throwback)

i’m doing a bit of reverse engineering here…

…but i’m fairly sure i’m right.

there was no “perfectly aged” vintage bit for today from 2002 or 2003 (well, there was for 2002 but it’s been used). so i decided to go back fifteen years instead, which predates the ufc, and predates me working at atomic, and see where we were at then. it was towards the end of the dell thing, i was in a not-so-great relationship, etc, etc.

the bit starts with me bitching about the new software, which is now the old software, this was written on. the only issue is that all images from back then went away when we migrated to this software. so i can see the file name, and have a complete backup that was done of my laptop oh, like three years later, but there’s no file by that name. reading the bit, i THINK the image i included below is of the right individual, albeit newer images that weren’t out at the time the bit was done. i’ll also include a 2023 note at the end there to tie everything together. so, without further ado…

i have been through hell and back (which is kinda funny when you see this) trying to show you this…


…spooky, huh?

(due to an “upgrade” of the software putting pictures on entries is now a pain in the ass. neither my non-girlfriend’s computer NOR shane’s NOR any computer in the library save for one will let me put in pics – so i just get here when they open to secure that one…)

we all get those emails from our friends, from time to time, whereby they send something they thinks looks kinda stupid or foolish or ridiculous. whole websites are dedicated to that shit.

but when you get a “how stupid is this tattoo?” email from they guy who actually does your tattoo work, you know perhaps somebody’s crossed the line. i always advise people against stuff below the elbow as it may inhibit job options…

…what kind of options did THIS idiot leave himself?

six things i figure he could still do…

1. mascot at a funeral home

2. weekend part-timer at hot topic

3. be a waiter pretty much anywhere in austin that’s open 24 hours…

(admittedly, that one’s pretty regional – but come visit and it’ll make sense)

4. performer at any theme park during halloween

5. doorman at a haunted house

6. in the words of harold, “a carnie – no explanation needed…”

2023 note: so, the guy actually had a pretty successful career as an actor and model, which was tragically cut short by what appears to be two habits that don’t work well together – perching on balcony railings while smoking cigarettes and drinking heavily. all that being said, harold nailed it – before any of that went off, he was in carnivals and sideshows, according to his wikipedia page.
