2021 – What I get invited to shoot these days
(ignore April 30, 2017 publish date – this was published on May 10, 2021)
You may recall a post about the 367 invites I saved from publicists, clubs, etc., in (and surrounding) the 80s (if not: https://iaintjustmusic.bobleafe.com/?p=11021).
Currently, the invites and shoots are a little different………….and I don’t mind: http://www.hackensacknow.org/index.php/topic,4010
What follows is a post I added to that last link because I’m not putting this blog post there:
I remember driving up and down Main St. every night back when it was originally 2-way in the mid-late 60s. It’s where we showed off our hot cars and met girls. A big chunk of my social life was a result of “cruisin’ the drag”. It sounds sad when I hear myself saying that, but it was a LOT of fun.
About two-and-a-half years ago, I decided to try and see if I could find one of those “girls”. I wasn’t having much success until one day when I got home and found a message on my voice mail from someone who had moved away and thought the switch to 2-way had already happened:
That was a 70-year-old woman who sounded exactly like she did when she was 19!
Last week, I invited her to the ribbon-cutting ceremony, but she no-showed.
Maybe her ’64 Chevy Impala was in the repair shop.
