Very nice!!!

I kinda like it better without the head; a Terry Gilliam dystopian future sorta thing.
There are two kinds of music, the good kind and the other kind. I like both.

Pretty simple, actually. Through my work with Portland Opera, I was asked to play one of the Marx Brothers for the Grand Opening of Portland's newest bridge. Wait. that doesn't clear anything up at all...

Thanks, Pete.
I do what I do, whether it's playing bass, or acting, or entertaining a crowd of 20,000 with a giant head. I'm still thrilled to be welcome here, and I thank you for keeping us all together. You are truly the gem in all of our lives (OK maybe Karen, but you're pretty cool too)

So what do the Marx Bros. have to do with the bridge?
I mean, is there a tie in with this
or just something to be fun?

The new bridge comes literally within inches of our rehearsal/staging studio, so the grand opening celebration was just outside Portland Opera's headquarters. They opened the facility to the public, had all kinds of activities to get people interested in the Opera, and at the closing of the festivities, invited the crowd into the studio for a screening of The Marx Brothers "A Night At The Opera". We (the giant-headed Marx Brothers) were mingling with the crowd all day to draw attention to the Portland Opera events.

The lady picking my nose is Sharon, my handler. You can't see worth a damn in that costume, so she led me through the crowds and handed out Portland Opera swag.

Oh, and there was a bouncy house.

I couldn't fit in it.
