Post a picture of yourself (Not riding, just chillin)

As the youngest clyde around I thought I would start a thread of pure vanity. Just post a picture of yourself in your normal clothes. Just hangin around, maybe even a picture of your special someone, lets just connect some faces to these names!

PS: As of 12:01 Eastern time (RIGHT NOW) I am 16!!!


Heres me.





And my special someone, Jes.

Another photo I've used for PR purposes. December 2, 2006, playing chess at City Espresso, Reading, PA. Weight, 280 pounds. Both this and the Sukenick headshot were used with my Chess Journalists of America award-winning article "Rising From The Ashes" published in Georgia Chess.

That is ok, when I was your age, we drank Musician's Best or Musician's Best Light whatever was cheaper. For those who didn't play in rock bands and were broke most of the time, it was usually Milwalkee's Best. We just bought the cheapest beer we could get our hands on and take it to a show or for after a show.

Well, Shauffers is still more expensive than Lions Head so pinky's up boys! All in all, its strictly utility booze.

I am without a doubt not in bike clothes here. Rick and Karen hosted me (I found them through through Warm Showers) on tour. Cool people. Photo by Rick.

This was a couple of years ago. Probably a little more grey, a few more smiles now (not more than 3, but you know what I mean).




Some more software fun.
