Some Photos from a Gig

One HOT Man! In my half-assed attempt to clean my horror of a desk I came across a couple of photos taken at a booking some time back. This one supposedly made it into a newspaper. Of course, call the paper to get a back issue or a tear sheet and you're lucky if you get anything. No idea how I got the photo!

Anyway, this is a decent action shot of me eating fire to the delight of tens of people.

This little fest was particularly memorable for me because not only did I get to perform somewhere and enjoy my life (I threw that enjoying my life part in for Doyle) but...

MMMmmm, Capybara!

...I got to hold a BABY CAPYBARA!

One of the other on-site attractions was a petting zoo from Amazing Animals by Samantha. She has provided animals for TV and film as well as for educational venues.

This day she had a baby capybara with her. I seem to recall that it was only a few weeks old.

April & I have been seeing these creatures pop up at zoos across the country and I was freaking out at the chance to not only see a baby one, but to pet and hold one.

Capybaras are the world's largest rodent and aside from their rather funny appearance, are pretty darned cool creatures. At this size they are adorable.

Speaking of stupid looking creatures, what the hell was up with my hair? What the hell kind of follicle disaster is that? I must have just finished a show and was oddly tussled. I know I didn't head out into the world looking like that!

I can't complain much about my life or my job I suppose. On days where I get to do something I'd never done before nor will I soon forget, I am usually a pretty happy guy.

I've been told it is OUTSTANDING!;)

On the serious side, yes, it is fine. Never hurts too badly if done properly.

OOPS! I didn't know you had commented on a post I was going to be deleting.

I tend to post the photos first and then merge them into one big post, deleting the individual posts. I'm sure there's an easier way, but this works for me.

Sigh, handsome. But what is that critter?
The critter would be me. The handsome one is the capybara.

Anyone who: 1) eats fire; 2) willingly holds rodents, is way ahead of the rest of the pack. Waaaay ahead! That's okay, someone's got to take point. Keep it up!

OMG, that tongue response made me laugh outloud! To me, the key question is when was that photo taken. If it was in the 80s, we can totally excuse the 'do.

Damn Becky, I had to look twice at the picture myself. I thought he had the capybara on his head, lol

Hahaha... I'm glad you enjoyed yourself laughing boy, keep it up, and thanks for the plug, lol

Sadly, no. The photo was within the last few years. I'm thinking the combo of just finishing a show and doing a bad "sweaty hair recovery" and the dead-on full frontal angle of the picture is responsible for the rally bad hair.

I look at that and I'm reminded of an old joke by magician, The Great Tomsoni. "I heard someone whispering about me wondering if I wear a wig. I don't wear a wig. Unfortunately I have cheap looking hair."
