It's funny, it was just about a year ago that I moved back to Peoria last October. Before I moved, I tried to get a bunch of people I used to work with to meet somewhere and have a few beers. At first there was a lot of people that were going to get together and then one by one everyone cancelled out except for my friends, Frank Scott and James Mollo. We decided just to hang out in Frank Scott's garage and it turned out to be a great night. The three of us worked together for years and we have lots of war stories from work and from our personal lives that we shared that night.
Fast forward to a year later and I'm here in New York on vacation. I tried to get a bunch of people together that I used to work with and one by one everyone bailed out except for Frank Scott and James Mollo, so we decided to return to Frank's garage. And let me tell you this, Frank's garage is a magical place like you've never seen. There's pieces and photos from his past, toys, posters, vintage toys, cameras and cars...you have to see it to believe it. It's like Kevin Spacey's garage in American Beauty, but ramped up about ten notches.
Yesterday it took me four hours to put up that post. The wi-fi in my hotel sucks monkey lungs, so I'm just going to be putting up a few photos the next couple of days. I'll put up a bunch of photos from my trip when I get back next Wednesday, but I don't have time for a full-fledged MBIP post till then.
So here's just a few photos from last night, thanks to Frank and James for hanging out with me, it was great to see you guys again! I'm hoping we can make this a yearly tradition! I'll post more of this night next Wednesday, but here's a sampling for you today! We'll see you all tomorrow!
Once again, this journey begins at Penn Station.
Since this is an abridged post, we'll fast forward through a train ride to Secaucus, New Jersey and then an hour long car ride to Frank's house. Speaking of Frank, there he is at the door! How do you like your job, Frank?
Is that one fine looking fridge or what?
Let the drinking begin!
There's Frank Scott and James Mollo in the legendary garage.
Frank's added a black light with posters since the last time I was here, very cool! All we needed was some mescaline, maybe next year!
Here they are on the other side of the garage. As I said, I'll post more photos from this night next Wednesday, but thanks to Frank and James for hanging out with me. I'm hoping this becomes a new yearly tradition for the three of us. We'll see you all tomorrow!
