See, Idk about you, but this is the kind … Continue reading Classic film binge

Growing up in Lawton, Oklahoma in the 1980s, I always heard stories about a guy named Crazy Larry who huffed paint and rode a bicycle around town. They said he wore a jacket in triple digit temps. They said he’d been a genius who ruined his life huffing paint. They said a lot of things. I never saw him as a kid, though, and I … Continue reading Crazy Larry
