I knew you always wanted to know what I looked like in overalls. I had to perform some surgery on Clyde and I bust out the redneck gear when I work on my pickup truck--yeah, I like to do things in theme. I took the opportunity to take a shot of what I don't usually go around looking like. I am preemptively flipping anyone off that makes any hillbilly cracks at my expense. I didn't say you couldn't make any. I encourage the roasting! I just have to flip people off at least once a day, or I feel that my estate in heaven is not secure.
Please note the size of my shoulders, forearms, and hands. I really don't know how I am perceived in bloggerland, but in real life I seem to be perceived as that one dude in "Sixteen Candles" that got super pissed when some geeks knocked over his beer can pyramid. It really dumbfounds people when they find out that I am a smart, witty man who would rather write songs and stories than fuck shit up with his pure machismo.
I hope this isn't a deal breaker. As my mantra goes: Please, baby don't go....I can change!
P.S. The T-shirt underneath the hillbilly garb is an R.E.M. concert "T" from their "Green" era. I hope this clears things up.
(Notice: My music blog, "120 dB's", has been updated. This post features the artist Nick Drake, of "Pink Moon" fame. It is still not known if he actually committed suicide. Link: Safe in your place deep in the earth, that's when they'll know what you were really worth. )
