The Bronze Fonz

    Newer Older

    For those who are too young to remember Happy Days, here's the history of the
    Fonz.

    I took my wife to see Phantom of the Opera (nose bleed, top row), and we met her parents for dinner afterward at John Hawkes Pub. I remembered that the Bronze Fonz was on the River Walk, so I made everybody walk until we found him. Pure awesome. He's shorter than we expected, though.

      Check your white balance. His teeth look kind of yellow.

      Well I have a 1L bottle of glennmorangie single malt scotch, but I think that it would push me way over the edge... a couple more beers would be better.
      You forgot to criticize John's masterful use of the rule of halves :P ;)

      You know how old he is by now? His teeth can be as yellow as they like.
      Drunks. Carry on.
      I don't use the rule of halves. I use the rule of centered.

      Very creepy... hey, didn't Han Solo have the same thing happen to him?? Someone should do something about that

      Bronze tarnishes, I think. Henry will have to be rubbed regularly.

      Great idea to practise your portraits on someone who won't get impatient as you try to choose the right camera settings. Next time, try to encourage your model to adopt a more naturalistic pose.

      I'd've thought he'd be made of wood.

      btw i know all about the fonz ^_^

    16. captain.magnificent 56 months ago | reply

      Phantom was pretty awesome. Great singing, great costumes, fantastic sets. Don't know how it fairs against the Vegas one, but locally it's gotten good reviews.

      And what makes you think I posted the Fonz info for you? I'm sure you're all up on Laverne and Shirley's Milwaukee connections, too.
