Treasure in the Basement!

While getting my laundry tonight, I walked through the basement of my building.

In the back room (which I can only surmise used to be the coal room, because the coal door is still intact on the outside wall and the old coal-burning furnace is still in the adjoining room, even though it isn’t being used anymore. I need to get pictures of it, it’s *really* cool), I found two dusty milk crates full of LPs. I crouched down and took a look, and discovered they were some of my all-time favorite albums.

There were TONS of albums by Elton John: “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Caribou,” “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only The Piano Player,” “Madman Across The Water,” “Greatest Hits,” and many others. There were also a lot of Billy Joel albums, including “52nd Street,” “The Stranger,” “An Innocent Man,” and “Piano Man.” Eagles albums included, “Their Greatest Hits,” “Hotel California,” and “The Long Run.”

Then I found the 12″ singles of Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand’s “Enough is Enough (No More Tears),” The TRIPLE-album soundtrack to “Thank God It’s Friday,” and a double-album called “A Night at Studio 54” with full dance-mixes of CLASSIC disco songs. All originals.

Summary: Whoever owned these has the same musical tastes as me.

And he HAD TO BE GAY!!!!

Project Campit Runway- Part 2

The designing adventures continued at Campit later that night, when we all dressed up in our new fancy new tie-dyed shirts and varous other additions for Campit’s big 30-year anniversary party.

Since 70s and disco were the themes for the night, some of us came up with some pretty outrageous ideas to add to the festivities.  Rommel donned a massive Afro wig and tight shorts with “Chicago” on the backside.

Ricardo, of course, couldn’t resist to claim the design as his own and plead his case to the Project Campit Runway crew.  I have some concerns, Ricardo, and so does Tim Gunn.  This might be Auf Wiedersehn for you…

Watch and see how it turned out!
