a young robot in NYC

I was just tossing out things that don't spark joy and I found this. It was about 1994? That's me in the cylindrical robot head. The eyes lit up! (the eyes were the plastic bell mutes from a Bell telephone, a thing that at the time you would have no compunction about breaking up and using for parts.

The guy next to me (Norman) actually had an excellent costume, he's just not in it here. He was the bent stick-gathering man from the cover of Led Zeppelin IV. 

I think this was the year Al showed up as an old man with high-waisted pants, asking or demanding that the other guests reach in and get themselves a dietetic hard candy. He also fell down the long stairs about five times, for laughs.
