not too long after this photo, we made the demo for "She's A Maniac"
The LA days, we were young and thin; Ant still is; I've grown a bit.
With Producer Dub-L and Lyricist Chase Phoenix...
As I was shooting and codirecting Monday Morning High's - "Set You Free" Music video. SHoot day, song and video.
With DUB-L on set...
Onset of this video shoot I decided to make the song that was to become "Perry Strong Comedian" Thank god Dubs went for it.
Mandom means Mankind...
and there's no mankind without our friends. Love these guys. Hampshire College represent!
With Anthony Gallo!
He's on the album. Will be more so on the next...if there is one!
With Greer Barnes at The Comedy Cellar!
Don't remember this night, looks like we frolicked!
With Greer Barnes at The Comedy Cellar...
and I'm saying some serious stuff about how to lick a girl's butthole.
LA Days with My ACE Erich Hoberg!
Great man, Better friend. Killer editor.
I'm scared of horses.
but she looked like Bojack so I petted her and brushed her. Then the allergies came.
With Jason Madoch (MANDOM LA)!
This poor guy has had to hear about MANDOM this and that every day and hour before any tracks were made. Thanks for pushing me.
With Sir Jarlsberg! at Don Hills...
I just dated us. If you haven't heard his album its great! My favorite song is A Tragic Tale! He co-produced One Sided Love on Mandom Encounters and really brought it to life. Keep an eye on that one.
With Baby Dayliner, Blockhead, Sir Jarlsberg, and Director Niles Roth
Freezing our asses off NYC style. If you don't know who these gays, I mean guys are, look them up great music, great commercials, just great art. Love these guys!
With my girl Julie in LA!
Wonder how I got that space in my teeth?
With my cousin Rick Drake and Matt Sims of Mount Sims
Matt Sims (The brown one) is one of my favorite musicians I can say I actually know. His albums Pure Sex and Wild Light are still in steady rotation in my playlists.
The Mandom Encounters record is dedicated to my cousin Rick (center of photo) who left us way too early. I think he would have loved some of it and given me a lot of shit for the rest of it. You are missed.
With Shel Matthews, Ifany Bell, and Matt Sears (aka The Four Horsemen)
My Hampshire College posse that made what would become my first youtube and Channel 101 LA video "Buck Whylin"
It was the top rejected short in Channel 101 LA in it's infancy.
I used to work out...a lot. With Dr. Skolnik!
With Tina G and Greer Barnes at Fat Black Pussy Cat.
Three Mandom folks in one photo!
Tina G raps on "She's A Maniac" and for a first timer I have to say she kills it. Doesn't hurt that she is gorgeous as well.
Greer raps as Lyl Vayder on "The Force Ain't Nothin'' the bonus track on the album. Yall know who he is!
With Tina G on a boat NIGGA!
With Tina G on my terrace.
She's a lovable maniac! Guess I may be too sometimes.
Comics chilling, being comics.
