My B Movie Life #pezoutlaw #gofundmepezoutlaw

In the beginning the cloud that now covers us all was unknown.
What we knew, was accepted.
The hated future was not even contemplated.
Once revealed, the lines were drawn.

My friend warned me of the peril.
I thought I heeded his advice.
My stance was tempered but I fear it seeped out.
Could the hatred be that strong, was the possible destroyed because of it?

This thought only occurred to me today.
Was I to blind to see it?
I refuse to mouth the words agreed upon.
I choose silence.

The chorus is deafening, all fall in line or are shunned.
Did I choose to late?
All I can do is be more careful n try to correct the past.
Withdraw the words that shouldn't have been spoken.

I'm very surprised when I see the stance taken.
Was the warning only for me?
I think that I finally understand, but is my insight to late?
Is it even possible to correct the past?

All I know now is that I have no opinion.
I just don't care anymore.
My world is small, my needs are few.
I leave the rest to others.
Pez Outlaw

    "“Eh? What's this?”"



Has the life of Pez Outlaw reached the point where his adventures are now being retold as urban legend?



One of the biggest mistakes I made in the 90s was selling before all possible product had been acquired.

Check out Pez Outlaw, Notes From The Asylum. Movie Rights $85,000.00

scene 2
She Whispered, "Kolinska" With that one word, Kolinska, a decade long Fairy-tale that changed my life began.

Segue to a crowded Pez/toy show floor where a woman whispers Kolinka in my ear to Josh n I on the little plane to Ljubliana about to die. see C3.She Whispered, "Kolinska" #pezoutlaw #hollywood... for the rest of this story

scene 3

1994 Flight to Ljubljana. After waiting all night on benches in a small corner of the Vienna airport finally it was time to board. We walk out onto the airstrip & are directed to board Sky Kings plane. 
“Sky King” starred Kirby Grant as Schuyler “Sky” King and Gloria Winters as his niece, Penny.

Pilot copilot & 4 seats for passengers. One of the seats occupied by the overweight male stewardess handing out sandwiches from Rubbermaid containers. This did not look good. The flight turned out to be quite similar to a ride on a scary roller coaster with the male stewardess in your lap more than his own seat. Something to do with flying over the Alps in winter in a small plane, wind currents, downdrafts & low altitudes. We drove clown cars down through the mountains after that. The single most beautiful drive you will ever take is a winter drive from Vienna to Ljubljana through the mountains. The air is crisp & clean. The scenery unmatched anywhere in all my travels. Whenever I think of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen it is that drive in winter. Though driving clown cars through serious mountains can be a harrowing experience.

Wardrobe. Me in my Trench Coat n Midnight Blue Velour Track Suit, clutching a paper towel in my left hand for security, true story. On the flight from the US to Europe I would not let the Flight Attendants take my coat as I did not trust anybody. 

 Sitting in my seat on that flight to Slovenia, I began wondering how I ended up here, sure I was about to die. The whispered word "Kolinska" that led me to that moment in time. From 1970 to 1990 I had been an accumulator of things old, from 1990 to 1994 I started doing antique n toy shows as a seller. During 1993 I started selling Pez from Canada, which led to the decade that changed my life's direction forever. All the previous was reflection while sitting on this plane ride from Hell, from here the adventure begins.


The story unfolds. 
 Reality TV pales in comparison to the life I lived for 11 years.  Hungary - 700,000 Pez Smuggled. Pez Outlaw 

Pez Outlaw Dispenser

 Spies, Black market deals, smuggling and Bribery.
10 years, Nobody could catch me.
I ran circles around the corporate cool kids and made them look like incompetents.



Final shot.
As the credits roll show a backshot of Pez Outlaw today sitting on set in the dark watching his life being made into a Hollywood Movie.
To me this is the money shot, telling the audience that after all that they just watched HE WON.
Life is hard n people need the encouragement of seeing that if you stick with it n believe in yourself, you actually can succeed. 

Box Office receipts weren't so great this past summer, What You Got To Lose by telling a middle class story of hope n dreams rewarded?



After Pez Outlaw, I intend to retire.
