Blue Bob

A man in a wrestling mask standing in the middle of an abandoned drive-in theater in Mountain Home, Idaho. Something odd about that?

    Thanks, El Santo. Yeah, now that I kind of know you, I would think that this shot SHOULD be a favorite of yours. It's my favorite picture of me of all time. I wanted to do it for months before I finally got my wife to shoot it. I just like EVERYTHING about it!

    Nothing odd at all. This is probably the best thing I have seen on flickr yet.
    And so much like the kind of image I want to make, or might even be making lately if I am lucky.
    I have been wanting to do a painting of an abandoned drive in theatre for about a year now.

    Thanks, Clousenheim. It's my favorite photo of me of all time. When I saw that abandoned drive-in theater in Mountain Home, Idaho, I just KNEW that I had to take that shot there! Months passed and finally I had the mask, the suit and everything was ready to go.

    We were afraid we'd get in trouble, since we were trespassing, after all, but nothing happened. I just love the way the whole thing looks--me in the mask, the weeds growing up through the dirt, the screen, all of it.

    Yeah, I think you'd do a good job of painting a drive-in theater. You definitely should do that ASAP.

    I think it's cool that you "get it" about this photo.

    I do get it, but it seems that only people with rubber masks get it.. :)
  • Bob Pagani 9y

    Hey, that there mask isn't rubber, it's SPANDEX, Buster!
  • Space][rucker 8y

    I think I agree that I would like to take a picture like this too some day.
  • Bob Pagani 8y

    No problem. All you need is a Blue Demon mask, a black suit and an abandoned drive-in theater. I recommend the one in Mountain Home, Idaho. Oh, you should take a camera, too.

    Kinda looks like a Pink Floyd album cover!

    Dark Side of the Goon?

  • Consumerist Dot Com 8y

    Is this from the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake?
  • Bob Pagani 8y

    Well, perhaps it should be, Consumerist, but it isn't. It's me standing in an abandoned drive-in theater in Mountain Home, Idaho.
  • Loveisaverb1 7y

    Maybe he's there to see "Beyond the Mat." Or maybe even Nacho Libre!
  • Bob Pagani 7y

    Well, considering that it's broad daylight and there's no speakers anywhere around, he ain't gonna see (or hear) much of anything.
