Over the years I’ve made over a hundred of these film and video shorts so far: from 1 minute to 20 minutes, to a one-hour compilation film, which was possible because, lately, I’ve played the same character either of two ways: as an old, quixotic, righteous Don Quixote-on-a-motorcycle, wanna-be “Outlaw Biker” named Emmett Sagittarius Deemus: an elder gentleman riding a funky, old, stolen motorcycle-with-a-side-car in which sits his young, recent hitchhikerpickpocket-sidekick, Willy Jones.

And sometimes Emmett morphs into Barnum Justice, a single, old, homeless doggerel poet and window washer who roams and patrols the beaches, side streets and alleys of Santa Monica, California ranting about “homeless sapiens”, while serving as a neighborhood watchman in defense of his ‘hood: friend and resident alike.

And sometimes I tell stories in person on stage and video tape it.

    I actually grew up with Larry from 2nd grade thru Far Rockway H.S. We lived down the street from eachother. He was a riot from the get go! My wife was friends with his sister, Carolyn and she and I were friends too, although a few years apart. I last spoke with Larry about 10 years ago. It was a very sweet rehash of Olde Times. Our parents were also friends. I would really like to speak with him. I’ll try his web site.
