?

a lot of people, at times, look at me with ? marks in their eyes.

the first ? for me, the song, 96 tears




I almost gave up on this post.  ...after reading down through the video's comments, I came to a ranking dead stop:
"@7855waldo Yeah, my uncle toured with them on drums in the 60's apparently he once brought some drag prostitutes into their hotel and they quickly found out that he got male prostitutes. Apparently he did that sort of stuff a lot.:"



the second ?, a stop for suds on the way from Pittsb. to cowtown.   in Zanesville.   I don't know, we exited, went over some cool old bridge and stop at a bar along a creak,  nice sign "?".   Had some Buds, hopped back in the car and headed home.  Who, What, When, Why,  I don't remember.

I wonder about myself, and sometime people come up to me to talk, and I don't know, I draw a blank.   I'm not good at the casual banter with folk things.    sometimes, I am.  not often. 


on this job, a commercial, I'm a 3rd grip. 
my station, the carts, I'm off the set most of the time.
While walking back from checking on the equipment I took a snap looking into the shooting on set.
That's Jon. the key grip sitting behind the dolly, left in the window, the dp is next, a china ball and then the actor.
I think.


the lights.  I'm a grip, so the lights, that's not my job, that's an electrics job.
the sandbags, and those square things on stands; diffusions, color, cutters, heat shield, sandbags, that's me.

and I don't know why my wife snapped this photo of me chatting on the phone, and I don't remember who I was talking to, .... and really, f' it.  my bare feet are going to slap their way to the fridge.   cheers, I saved all the golden monkeys in the variety case for last,  ????
