I only mentioned that the ride broke down because it was part of the 'waiting in line' experience. I'm not insinuating that the ride is a lemon or anything like that. My guess is that fixing it each time just consisted of someone pushing a re-set button.
"Vamps: Deadly Dream Girls" was the VHS box cover. The blond with the fangs is Jennifer Huss who was a DJ on the WEBN Dawn Patrol, although she was in this movie long before her radio gig. Paul Morris is the guy with the cross, and he has been in many plays and a few movies since.
"Scan" was a magazine about making independent "B" movies. The skull face zombie on the front cover is from a scene in "Zombie Cult Massacre" and the zombie over his right shoulder is one of my best friends, David M Myers.
"Vamerotica" was a magazine that specialized in low budget independent movies with an emphasis on the popularity of all the vampire films coming out at the time. That is Jenny Huss from WEBN again and the brunet in the bottom right corner is Amber Newman who I think is semi retired now, but back in the 90's you may have seen her on quite a few different films running late night on Showtime and Cinemax. She is from the Middletown, Ohio area.
The photos published were from back when I was working on B budget movies and using a 35mm SLR camera. I had stuff in horror genre magazines like Draculina, Vamperotica, Scream Queens Illustrated, Scan, Fangoria and a few others.
My photography on the cover of the "Vamps: Deadly Dream Girls" video box
My picture on the cover of Scan...
My picture on the cover of Vamperotica... (at least two of them. The girls on the pink blow up chair is not mine)...
These are just three I snagged off the net. Someday I will get around to scanning my own copies.
I've had lots of photography published, but the only art I had published was the cover I drew for my high school yearbook. My drawing aren't really that good, I just use a lot of texture to fool people into thinking that it is good.
I have been to the German Village and eaten at that great German restaurant. We took a Greyhound up to Columbus just to experience the bus ride... next time I will drive. We walked all around the German Village, took a self guided tour of the capital building, visited the Topiary Park and ate at Dirty Dawgs.
The boat ride looking thing was a cement flume that circled around Pirate island. The water was drained so it might not be a boat ride at all but just an artificial river just for themeing.
I do have a John Bryan/ Clifton Gorge trail map that I printed off the net. I see that entrance on SR 370/ Bryan Park Road. I will have to Google Glen Helen for I am unfamiliar with that park. I am also unfamiliar with COSI.
I haven't been to Hocking Hills since I was a kid in the 70's. It's on my bucket list.
