That's me on the right, circa 1989-1990, when I was a student at the University of Guam. This was taken outside one of the older buildings, where the Communications classes were mainly held; the building has since been torn down.
And yes, you can click on the picture to get a larger version of the pic. I think that's a smudge of transparent tape on my chest and other spots of the photo.
Yes, that's me in acid-washed, black, multi-pocket jeans of some kind. Yes, it's Guam and that's me in a long-sleeved black sweater (left from my days in Lincoln, Nebraska). And yes, that's me in BCG sunglasses.
And with hair.
Hell ... the only cool things about me in this pic is:
A. My B-boy stance ... LMAO
B. The cigarette (Kool, king-size, menthol)
C. The fly Scotts flip-flops
I've got to send a copy of this to my friend Jojo, who is second from left in this pic. He's a bit bigger now and keeps his head shaved too, just like me ... check out his Tarzan/1980s band hair. LOL
The guy between me and Jojo is one of the most talented artists I've ever known. He does some amazing work, especially comics-type stuff. The last I heard he was doing some work on animation of a syndicated action cartoon show and he was hoping to get into George Lucas' Industrial Light and Sound — Skywalker Ranch. I hope he made it; the guy's got mad skills.
Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• The University of Guam is a land-grant university chartered in 1968. However, it was originally founded as the Territorial College of Guam in 1952, when it was set up to train teachers for Guam schools.
