    this first one was not too long after my 2cnd open heart surgery. i had just started being able to work out and take traditional shotokan. i think i started out at 125 lbs...in this pic i was about 135.....but i was determined and gained 40 lbs of muscle real fast.

    this was in oklahoma.....in the summertime i would go to atlanta and work when school was out because i could double my money and buy stuff like guitars and amps.
    (notice the same shirt...i must have liked it, lol)
    in atlanta i had a gang....we used to rumble with other gangs and do bad stuff. i aint proud of it...well, kinda....
    here are a few guys in that gang....there were 5 or 6 more, but two got killed.
    i think i had gained up to about 150 or 160 by the summer....i was 16 here

    AKWARD.....now theres a word that perfectly decribes being a teenager between the ages of 14 to 17. everything before and after those years are just fine.....but those years are kinda screwed for everybody i think.

    I had David Bowie Ziggy Stardust hair at some point in the 80s. It was awesome.

    Since I was young, I have always made a point of being the one taking the photographs. Very few of me exist. I think it's probably for the best. :)

    Only when I have an outside chance of winning. :p

    Edit: Goes off to see if he can find the video of himself playing mando with the band on stage in Germany ...


    and destroy it before there is any chance of it being posted on the interwebs. :p
