…no far away galaxy, though. Last night I got an e-mail from Kathleen, who’d stumbled across my Gigs photoset while looking for an old friend of hers. She was kind enough to send me an old photo from Gigs and said I could go ahead and post it along with the rest of my pictures from the club.

The picture was a fairly low-quality scan (a 216k 318×226 .bmp), but I’ve done what little I could to clean it up in Photoshop, enlarging it 200%, tweaking the levels, and running an unsharp mask filter on it. It’s still not pristine, but I’m still thrilled to have this drop in my lap.

Update: Kathleen was able to find the original photo and re-scan it at a higher resolution, so it’s much easier to see now. Turns out I was at a point where I was going through an ill-conceived attempt to actually grow out my beard….

Gigs Music Theatre, Anchorage, AK

I’m guessing this was taken sometime in 1997 or so. That’s Ray (DJ Happyjack) sitting in front. From left to right on the couch, we’ve got Lydia, Kathleen, me, Kate, and Rebecca (who was going by Apple at the time). Casey‘s lying across the back of the couch. I’ve got no clue who the guy on the far right is.

Thanks again, Kathleen!

  1. Hehe — yeah, it’s been fun to watch that take off. If you check out the del.icio.us history for that link and scroll all the way to the bottom, you’ll see that I was the first one to link it, and then it picked up steam over the next few days (not that I think I did that much to get the ball rolling other than providing the idea).

  2. That guy on the end’s name is Shannon. Knew him from back when I was dating Sarah and doing the whole vampire thingy. By the way, I survived the ‘Raq and have thus far dodged the ‘Stan and may be moving to Anchorage. I am now in Olympia, you should get in contact!
