Keep Hot Springs Weird!!

Today was a weird one in my newly adopted little home town of Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. It started with a meet and greet luncheon with the lizard king of weirdness, Gary Busey. I grew up in Tulsa Oklahoma, and every Saturday night we'd tune in to watch Mazeppa's Uncanny Film Festival, a local show with ancient movies and skit comedy during the commercial breaks with Gailard Sartain (Mazeppa), Gary Busey (Teddy Jack Eddy) and Jim Millaway (Sherman Oaks). Both Gailard and Gary went on to Hollywood success, and today was my first encounter with Mr Busey.
