Talking Life *before* unicyclung and Pianos...

My brother brought me an old photo album that I hadn't seen for a really long time. These pics are ancient, lol! They date mostly from around 1982, when i was 26, or about half my current age haha. The caricature is from when I was a DJ at a local club.

Notice the record I'm breaking! The others are from my ventriloquist days, wth the oldest one from 1974. Like unicycling, I always seemed to had ave knack for getting publicity. Btw, I went my Terry "Miller" back then. Used it also in radio announcing.

Fits right in since it's all non-mainstream stuff, like unicycling! Be unique, and proud of it!

I just wish I could get away with rocking some of those sweet 70's haircuts and that leisure suit from picture #2. . .

I was definitely born ~30 years too late. . .

Lol, I remember "Leisure" suits, but I never owned one. That was just a leather jacket I had on, but I guess it did kinda have that style. I remember I was so excited when I bought it from my first check from my job at the time! I did wear platform shoes for a time and flaired dress pants. But also I had a hippy streak with tie-died shirts and HUGE bell bottom jeans and flip flops.

Btw, I almost went to Woodstock, (1969) but my parents were too scared to let me go with my friends. I was almost 14 then, but they were just way too over protective!

But, did you ever wear Earth Shoes?

BTW, I think I see your lips moving in one of these pictures.

You don't want to live through the 70s. The shorts were embarrassingly short. People today (especially kids) wouldn't be caught dead in them. They think above-the-knee is short (evidenced by this and this). Try a one-inch inseam.

Yep, I remember the infamous cutoff jeans made into SHORT shorts that [straight] guys wore then! But that was considered cool and an every day thing to wear back then, but if a guy wore them today, he would be thought of as gay... but Seinfeld would say, "Not that there's anything wrong with that", haha.
