Ramblings of an Errant Rogue

Trials and tribulations of an actor at large in Hollywood.

I am a living anachronism. I'm a "throw-forward" from another time. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful to have been born here in the 20th century, because it gives me the luxury to play with and explore that pull I feel to history. A few years ago I caught the computer virus and I was never the same. That's been a very slow recovery. Despite my strange attraction to the dark side of life (or more accurately, my romantic idea of the dark side of life), I am an extreme optimist. Like the punching bag clowns of old... you can knock me down, but I come right back up smiling. NOTE: No attempt has been made by the above statement to tempt fate.

 As Time Goes By.... My Rye Mistake

I was a fool! I was visiting the Rose Bowl Swap Meet this month and stumbled upon a booth where this man was unloading his grandfather's bar. The grandfather apparently didn't drink, but kept the bar for guests and perhaps appearances?! One of the items for sale was an unopened bottle of Old Overholt from 1957! The kid wanted $20 bucks for it and I was out of cash. Rather than RUN to the cash machine... I went looking for this Fedora seller I've seen before.... Of course by the time I got back to this kid, he had sold a number of bottles including the Old Overholt! (Sob!) It may be one of the grandest "Fish that got away" stories I will henceforth be lamenting.
