It’s interesting to think back to when you first connected with a certain cultural artifact. It could be a musician, a band, a comic, a writer…………any person who creates.

I got into Prokofiev by watching Woody Allen’s Love and Death. And so forth. We all have our different tales.
In the late 1980s, I regularly attended the Sick & Twisted Animation Festival, and the item below was one of the entries. That’s all it took to get me into Was Not Was. Enjoy!

As belabored often, the Fed was forced into a hawk suit last spring as the public ate the inflation hysteria.
