Pics From The Past, Volume 3

I realized this morning that I hadn’t done one of these in a while.  I bet you all have been DIEING for a new installment….
But the good thing about ME is that, if I make you wait and wait for something until you are BEGGING for it, when I finally DO deliver the goods I will rock your world, and leave you sweaty, shaking, and panting for more…
See how I turned this into something dirty? 
In case you’re new here, that’s pretty much how my mind works.
Anyway…..
I really do have a doozy for you today.  For you newcomers, every once in a while I rummage thru my old boxes of photos and pull one out to scan into the computer so I can share it with ya’ll.
All I can say about THIS one is that, I really do have balls as big as churchbells for sharing this one with the intewebs…
Well, well, well.
What can I say about the picture that I’m about to show you, to defend myself?
-          I can point out that this picture was taken around 1990.  That was a long time ago.  Fashion was a lot different back then.  I’m pretty sure that people were still wearing petticoats and pantaloons….
-          I can argue that I was just coming home from the beach when this picture was taken by an old girlfriend.  That’s why I was wearing the blue and white skimpy bathing suit.
-          I can verify that the tank top I was wearing had a Guns N Roses logo on it, and they were the hottest band in the world at that time.  So THAT means that wearing it was COOL, right?
-          I can propose that I most certainly was NOT embarrassing myself by wearing that bandana in public.  See, it was the 90’s, remember?  Everyone was flamboyant like that in the 90’s!  For a while, wearing bandanas like that was considered “dress casual”.  Plus, I think I was still on my “Rambo” kick.
-          I can attest to the fact that, no matter HOW I dressed back then, I still got laid.  A lot.  By GIRLS!
Oh fuck it.  I guess I can’t stall this forever.
Behold…..

I really can't think of anything else I can say to try to save face on this one……
Just be gentle, ok?

where do you hide that monster that shows up in your self portraits? Since it was a long time ago and you probably dressed like that thinking that it would help you get laid, I can't beat you up to much. But it does look like you were trying out to be in the Village People?????

That might be the best photo of all time!

B.E. Earl said...

"...taken by an old girlfriend"

Who are you kidding? You know full well I took that picture of you after one of our frequent trips to Fire Island. Wooo-gah!

Annabelle said...

You've got lovely thighs for a white guy.

Slyde said...

anna: i do, dont i?

Bouncin' Barb said...

You look like one of my old boyfriends from the 70's. Not old just the outfit and the headband. Too funny.

B.E. Earl said...

"YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE? YOU'RE IN THE JUNGLE, BABY! AND YOU'RE GONNA DIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"

Had to be said.

radioactive girl said...

If you looked like this now people might make fun of you but back in the day that was super hot!

Slyde said...

barb: who knows, maybe i AM!

earl: no it didnt.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Well, shorts WERE a lot shorter back then after all.

Marlene said...

That does it. I'm un-following. You have much better legs than I do, and I can't stand for that.

;)

Cocaine Princess said...

You sexy Italian thing, you! I love the headband!

Lotus07 said...

For some reason this reminds me of "Goodfellas Part-2", the son of the gangsters.

(Kudos for suffering the slings and arrows of your readers)

Slyde said...

jill: they WERE, weren't they?

marlene: hey now, dont knock those legs of yours....

cocaine: i wish i still had it...

lotus: yeah, that which does not kill me makes me stronger, and all that shit...

Freaking CLASSIC.

Kaylen said...

I was around in the 90's...and don't recall that people seriously were rocking the rambo bandana....most esp males who were not rambo. And even more especially, males who were getting laid.

I love that you shared this though-thanks for the chuckle! :)

elise said...

I love the Rambo meets American meets gay thing you have going on there... Tight denim shorts are such a great look!

;)

latindog said...

Oh shit...

Cuz said...

I think you look adorable.

Remember when we attempted to see Guns & Roses and they never showed up???? LOL

Tamara said...

The early 90s were cruel to fashion.

Heff said...

HOLY SHIT, How did I miss this ??

Nice, shorts there, "Dangle", LMAO !!!

The Accidental Somebody said...

Thank god swim trunks (or whatever those are)have built-in panties, or you'd be jingle jangling all the way down to your knees. Kinda short...but the hawt bandana makes up for it.

And wouldn't you know it, I was just educating my kids on GnR just this afternoon! One of their favorite cartoons features the characters singing with an animated Slash. So naturally I had to fill them in on who the hell Slash is/was...
