I was going to try and keep with the Royal Tenenbaums theme yesterday by posting my favorite songs from the film, but I still have too many songs I need to mention for Modern Rock 2011. But Wayback Wednesday is the perfect opportunity to get back in with the Family Of Geniuses. Here’s a picture from Halloween 2003 of my Richie Tenenbaum costume.
I tried my best to pull off Richie by letting my hair grow and gluing a beard to my face. I even walked around the party wearing one sock and no shoe, as you can see here.
I was drinking martinis that nite, so the details are a bit hazy. But I can tell from the picture that this was in my apartment in University City since I’m standing with my neighbor Josh, who went as Captain Ahab. I remember that my girlfriend at the time went as Margot Tenenbaum, but I’m not dumb enough to post pictures of ex-girlfriends here. But suffice to say that we made a pretty convincing pair.
In retrospect it’s a bit odd that I chose to emulate Richie, since at this point I’d say I’m clearly more like Royal. But it was still a hell of a costume from a wonderful movie, and I’m glad I remembered to take pictures.
