“He had an almost compulsive appeal for WC Fields and used his quotes as often as possible.
He had an innate sense of humor and loved playing with words a-la Slip Mahoney(Bowery Boys). “That dimunendo is most staccato.”
He loved the movie West Side Story. That should be obvious from the references in the Alice Cooper music.
He loved Jim Morrison, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Les Paul, Brian Wilson, The Beatles, and many others.
He liked watching boxing and was honored and overcome with wonder when he was able to meet “Ali-the Greatest.”
He loved photography, explosives (large firecrackers), guns, switchblades, astronomy, building models, antiques, Betty Boop, Wallace and Ladmo, old cars, old movies, cartoons, Mad magazine, trivia, and his favorite pastime of all, watching old television shows. He loved Ozzie and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best, Alfred Hitchcock, Twilight Zone, etc. One of his very favorite newer shows was The Wonder Years. He also liked Beavis and Butthead.
Glen kept journals and he would write down quotes from shows that intrigued him or ones he thought were funny. Then he would play with them until they became his own. He put his own twists and turns on them. One I found in a journal was, “If my brain was lard, it wouldn’t grease a very big pan.”
I could go on and on…”
