What a time! The Bash rolled on with
great guests and a real fun time. Some quick little visions that are
still flashing in my head: seeing someone dressed up like "The
Fly" in the hallway, radio coverage on CNN network news, Paul Harvey
radio news, AP wire on newspapers across the country, seeing the great
on Chamberlin make-ups with little scenerios we did on stage. The Mummy
choking the High Priest of Bash (Bill Miller) on stage with my wife
as the reincarnated Ananka, The Werewolf of London chasing my sister,
Ron himself as Uncle Boris from MAD MONSTER PARTY, Ron Chamberlain and
Thom Subila as the characters from THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI with
the great new score performed live by childhood friend Kevin Slick!
