 5)Earlier stage of the Plasmatics

Another earlier stage of the Plasmatics, look at Richie, he was such a good-looking boy, we were the punk rocker, but we felt pretty average at that time, and Wendy had just started doing funny stuff.

My friend Ron from the Testors told that your lead singer flashed her tits while singing a song. I’ve said. “What?”. I did not see a thing. I focused on playing. I didn’t even notice. And again, it became her regularly, Act. It was before the introduction of the chainsaw massacre action era.

And we’re middle of the guerrilla poster warfare. During late 1970’s, all unknown local band had own flyers and posters. Our job, we had to cover the entire city with Plasmatics posters. We had competed for other groups and real professional Movie Poster Pasting Guys, and we included over their whole billboards in the middle of the night in the begging and driving around my burgundy colored Citroen DS21, then we got 10-foot ladders and switched Rod’s, Ford Van.

Richie and I were the original posters warrior gangs. The average one-night poster, we went out from Rod’s office. It counted many as 1000. But we used about 800-900 signs to paste and cover with the water-based glue with the bucket, and the paintbrush to entire Manhattan’s many blank walls was expected to be severe fun time.

And once we began to draw a crowd, Richie asked me. “I’m thinking about doing Mohawk. You know Mohican haircut.”I ever saw Mohikan guy in Manhattan. And Richie told me, “You know TAXI DRIVER? Robert Deniro does that his last scene.” And next day he did the Mohawk haircut.

Richie Stotts had started in Mohawk; It became Punk Default hairdo.

One day at time

December 15th, 2017

It’s a slow process; I don’t rush to do anything, this website is a daily progress or my diary.

Once I lost all artifacts that are gone forever. I don’t regret once happened it; there is a reason to remember and have learned.

Life is a gift and strange things; regret is not worse remembering. The physical harm by others and bullied experience are other things, which always left scars,

In this current occurrence of “Me Too” movement, I also have experience when I was three years old, I won’t write in here, but it happened when I was a way from my grandmother for just only 10 minutes that occurred, it had changed entire my life since that incident.
I sincerely understand sexual victims feelings; there is no way to forget those a few minutes of horror.

I accidentally destroyed my new website last night.

I accidentally destroyed my new website last night.

Even 2017, WordPress is still fragile as used to be. It happened three times during 2003- 2009 when I was active in making my website and writing daily blogs.
The restoring was painful and kept me a sleepless night for a week. It happened when blog template provider issued the upgrade version, it was always a buggy, and sometimes entire word scripting became scrabbled and unreadable, and could not go back the previous version.
But this is the relatively new site, and it’s not officially opened for public yet. I’ll start building again.
Thanks for reading until the end.
