I used to be an actor. I was paid for it even.
Now I'm a has-been what don't get paid no more.
Here's some movies.

 Too many years ago

Still shot from a video I did in 1986 ||
I used an online service to make it talk. I think that if the
young man in the picture could see me now, he would be horrified.

 'Still have all this stuff

Lots of boxes in my basement were opened in 2017.

 Young, Playing at Being Old

Young -Playing Old. ||
Local Comedy - Local Stage - The play was called "Wrinkles". Not a bad story. I was originally in a staged reading of it. Then they went to produce it. The guy who took this role had to be let go 'cause he couldn't remember his lines, and also claimed some kind of sudden malady that prevented him from doing it. That was about a week before opening. The author requested that I do it instead. ( I was also notorious for getting 'off book' on very short notice.)
( The look was passable, but I should have shaved my head )
February 16th 1991 - 8 minutes 10 seconds

 I also sucked at retail in real life.

Retail Slave Response ||

 Song and Dance Stuff

Texas has a reputation. || "The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas"

'Begins in blackness. 'Nothing wrong with your monitor.

 Critmas 2015

The High Point of My Year In 2015 ||
