Artist's Description

BACK IN THE LAST CENTURY, WOW, LAST CENTURY, THAT SOUNDS SO LONG AGO, ANYWAY, BACK IN THE LATE 70’S AND 80’S AND 90’S, I PLAYED AROUND WITH THE CB RADIO. MY HANDLE WAS, “TEXAN” AND I BECAME PRETTY WELL KNOWN AROUND THE SACRAMENTO VALLEY AS WELL AS CONTRA COSTA COUNTY AND YOLO COUNTY. I HAD A PRETTY POWERFUL MOBIL CB UNIT IN MY TWO CARS AND ONE VAN. I WAS ABLE TO KEEP THE CB SET UP THE SAME IN EACH VEHICLE, BECAUSE I HAD MY RADIO AND POWER LINEAR SET UP IN A CARRYABLE PACKAGE THAT ALLOWED ME TO JUST PLUG IN THE POWER CORD INTO ANY CIGARETTE LIGHTER SOCKET. HOWEVER, MOST OF THE TIME, IT JUST WENT INTO WHAT EVER CAR I OWNED AT THAT PARTICLULAR TIME. I ALSO HAD A POWER SUPPLY IN MY BEDROOM, NEXT TO MY BED, SO I COULD CONTINUE TO ADJITATE OTHER CB’ERS AT NIGHT. THE FAVORITE SAYING I THINK I HEARD THE MOST WAS, “BREAKER BREAKER GOOD BUDDY”, YA GOTTA COPY COMEOWN?. WELL, WHEN I WOULD SIT 2800 FEET UP OFF THE VALLEY FLOOR, ON MOUNT VACA, WITH MY 69 MERCURY MARQUIE, THEN LATER MY 73 DODGE B300 VAN. I USED TWO FULL WAVE LENGTH ANTENNAS AND MOUNTED THEM IN A WAY THAT MADE THEM DIRECTIONAL TO A CERTAIN DEGREE. I COULD MAKE TRUCK DRIVERS BELIEVE THAT I WAS IN THE WEST ELCAMINO TRUCK STOP, WHICH WAS JUST A LITTLE OVER 40 MILES FROM WHERE I WAS AT. I DID MY BEST TO ADJITATE WHAT EVER CHANNEL I HAPPENED TO BE ON AT THE TIME, WITH ECHO AND REVERB HOOKED UP TO MY SYSTEM. I ALSO HAD HEADPHONES ON SO I COULD TELL HOW TO ADJUST MY SYSTEM TO MAKE IT SOUND THE BEST, FOR WHAT IT WAS ANYWAY. I COULD MAKE IT DO THINGS LIKE JUST SAY, "BREAKER, BREAKER, BREAKER, BREAKER, BREAKER, BREAKER, BREAKER, BREAKER, IF I WANTED TO. USUALLY I MADE IT SOUND LIKE A PAGING SYSTEM IN A LARGE AIRPORT. I SURE PISSED A LOT OF TRUCK DRIVERS OFF. THEN AFTER I GOT THE GOOD AND MAD AT ME, I ASKED THEM HOW THEY FELT. THEY WERE PISSED,THEY TOLD ME. I ASKED THEM, ARE YOU AWAKE, OR SLEEPY. I USUALLY GOT THE RESPONSE THAT THEY WERE TOTALLY AWAKE AND PISSED OFF. THEN I TOLD THEM THAT I HAD SUCCEEDED AT WAKING THEM UP WITHOUT THE NEED FOR COFFEE OR LITTLE WHITE PILLS OR BLACK CAPSULES. I USUALLY GOT AN APPOLOGY AND A THANK YOU FOR KEEPING THEM GOING THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING HOURS. I TOLD THEM, THAT WAS OK, I KNEW WHAT IT WAS LIKE DRIVING THOSE LONG LONELY ROADS AT 3:00AM. TIREDER THAN SLEEPY FROM THE SEVEN DWARFS. ANYWAY, THIS VAN IS A RENDERING THAT I DREW OF IT WHEN I WAS TRYING TO DECIDE ON WHAT COLOR TO PAINT IT. SINCE IT WAS ALREADY SCHOOL BUS YELLOW, ALL I NEEDED WAS READ AND BLUE PAINT. WELL, I ENDED UP USING DARK BLUE METALIC AND MARINNER BLUE METALIC ON THE VAN. THE DARK BLUE WAS THE MAIN COLOR AND THE MARINNER BLUE WAS THE GRAFFICS THAT WENT AROUND THE VAN. IT ENDED UP LOOKING GREAT, BUT I NEVER GOT AROUND TO FINISHING THE INTERIOR.
