See if you can spot me.
Today John Steinbeck, American writer would have been 112. He wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Grapes of Wrath. Here is a photo, of the cast and crew of the Modesto Junior collage production of the The Grapes of Wrath. It was done some time in the early 1990's if you look closely you can find me in there.
I grew up in a central California town called Modesto. I lived there until my mid 20s when I moved to Los Angeles. My Last night in Modesto I went to see my friends band play Grandaddy. I knew it would be a good place to say good bye to all my friends. Since I'v lived in LA GrandaddyÂ has gotten a lot bigger and vary popular in europe. Then they broke up a number of years ago but, recently got back together to play some shows again. So Monday I got to go see them play once again after all these years.
Thanks to my good friend Paul Anderson I saw Stoneface: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Buster KeatonÂ this weekend at Sacred Fools Theatre, it was really good. I would recommend it to any one you know that likes old Hollywood.
