That's right, it's my high school yearbook page. Spring 1987.
Some things to note:
It's not just a bad scan - it's an intentionally damaged photocopy of a bad picture that's been reduced/enlarged a few times on a photocopier to get it to be really grainy. This was long before Photoshop, you know.
Yes, my nickname was Bear, and tpratt did occasionally call me Kris Kringle. Some kids also called me Lumber.
It wasn't GBG, but I did joke with my friend Bret that I was obviously "going [to] be gay," hence the inclusion of those three letters.
Quotes are stolen from: Foetus, Samuel Beckett, Wendy's, XTC, Nietzsche [this is the only really embarassing one cuz it's so predictably high school], Throbbing Gristle, a Native American quote from the Oakland Museum, Bret Thurwalker, John Lydon, and Kafka at least twice.
Chris Anderson was last seen attending grad school at UCLA. He's a composer.
