This photo of me was shot by my good friend, Dan Sack at the radio station WBFO in Buffalo, New York. I had announced that I was going to get my hair cut the next day and Dan was the only person with the foresight to document my last days with mega-hair.
This file is a scan I made years ago -- long before I knew anything about digital file formats and resolution. I seem to have misplaced the original photo but I remember it was printed on RC (resin coated) paper and so when I used an ordinary iron to hot mount it to some backing board, the picture started to melt and gave that washed-out look to my face.
Yes, this is really me. No, the hair was not done with PS. It took quite some time but I actually grew every inch of it.
