The Nitty Gritty

But more than all of those I am an entertainer. I carry around a ukulele with me for the same reason a gangster carries a gun; better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Stage or sidewalk, Your Pal Pete shows are just where they happen.
Currently, I'm working on a musical, RagnaPOP(or she's got the bomb), set to premiere at this year's Capital Fringe Festival. I'm also working on music, comedy, and musical comedy; for kids and/or adults.
The fruit of these projects will be available on this site, so check back regularly!

My Last Delaware Post

Famous people from Delaware:
Valerie Bertinelli- that's right Eddie Van Halen's ex-wife

Teri Polo-Ben Stiller's girlfriend in "Meet the Parents"

Tom Verlaine- Guitarist of nacent punk band Television, my Eddie Van Halen when I was growing up.

Henry Hemlich- perhaps you're familiar with his maneuver?

Elisabeth Shue- recipient of the Academy Award "Kiss of Death"

Ryan Phillippe- aka Reese Witherspoon's oscar date

More fun facts:
Most of Delaware's borders are part of the famous Mason-Dixon line that seperated north from south during the civil war. (o.k. that's only fun to geography nerds).

"Going to Delaware", as it turns out, is slang for smoking pot according to wikipedia(though I can't find the link where I saw that). The reasoning is that Delaware is so boring, you might as well get high.

In Wayne's World when Wayne and Garth travel by green screen to Delaware the picture behind them is of the Indian River Bridge located between Dewey and Bethany.
This was the location where I had supposedly drowned when I was 19, at least that's what a kid told my ex-girlfriend, who believed him. You can imagine the surprise when I ran into her best friend at college that fall.
"Pete! You're not dead!"
And me, being a man of hair trigger wit, said,"NO!"
