    I’ve got the shoes right here; they’re black, squared-toed Steve Maddens. But otherwise, I don’t see any info as to a specific style. But the following three E-Bay item #’s are all basically pretty similar…

  6. Canastamusic says:

    $60, huh? Sounds pretty fair, I’d say. But how, exactly, do you intend to transfer the signature from your arm to the buyer?

  7. Canastamusic says:

    Hmmm, somehow, I missed this comment. And we were actually just in K.C. for a show a few weeks ago. Hopefully, the word of our visit somehow managed to reach you in time!

    Whoever posted it, thanks! Questions and comments. Having been to Mexico City (Mexico Distrito Federal as they call it) a zillion times I can relate to him talking about viewing the pyraminds (Teotihuacan). Also I identify with the “red eye flight” In my 20s I used to do that all the time, fly Sunday night red eye, and get to Chicago monday AM and go straight to work. I wish the video be taking in Mexico DF. I imagine the reason was money. Am i correct?
