It is interesting to see a person conditioned by their environment, blissfully unaware of what is taking place, and yet being molded accordingly. The simple Pavlovian theory seems to have had an influence on the snarky and the compliant offspring, knowingly and unknowingly. Do you recall the first time someone complimented you? Do you remember your reaction and feelings during those memories? In some youthful experiences one only tastes the dust of the desert and the lack of kinetics in the vacuum-like tube, called home where one eats, and sleeps during the transition from the other competitive world that defines identity. My home was for a meal here and there and more about it being a tent in between my next carnival or extravaganza. Continue Reading

What was the actual top speed you took your KZ1000P to on the show…any episode. On a few episodes you guys were moving along at what looks to be very FAST – was this you on the machine? ….just wondering.
I am not sure but I would guess the top speed I did was 90-95 mph…..as I was always a little nervous about high speed wobble. I think the fastest I have ever gone on any of my motorcycles in life was maybe 100 mph. I rode the bike at high speeds and slow speeds but most often if it was a dangerous high speed pursuit it was a stuntman and for me that was Scotty Dockstedder who was better on the bike than I was or Gary Davis in the orig episodes.
My dad was a big fan of your show and I love it too. You’re my favorite. My question is how did you become famous? I’m 8 years old and you’re my favorite CHiPs actor.
Hey East Coast Fans, great news! Larry will be appearing at the Chiller Theatre Toy, Model & Film Expo in Parsippany, NJ on April 26th-28th. He will be available for autographs and photo ops. You can get both for just $20. Continue Reading
I know that you were very keen on horses a number of years ago. Are you still breeding and working with horses? What breed are they? My favourites, and probably the most expensive are Arabians and Australian Quarter Horses.
No horses right now….just too much work and a lot of Vet bills. I had Arabs, Quarter Horses, Thoroughbreds and Warm Bloods. I like Quarter Horses. I think the Amer Quarter horse is now almost two distinct breeds. I do not like the big boned quarterhorses that work on ranches. I like the fine boned and smaller and more refined quarter horse in the cutting horse business.
This past frenzied week as I continued my sprint on the economic treadmill, I called a television production company and pitched my projects for television. After breaking the ice the producer and owner of the company said we had a like friend from the past. I quickly responded with “and who is that?” He said Chip Hand. I thought back and said “oh yeah, Chip Hand, he worked with me as a co producer on projects we ran around the world buying and optioning movies-how is Chip these days?” I keep meaning to check in with Chip and just keep getting distracted with my priorities. I have this habit of telling my mind….tomorrow.
The TV producer responded, “Chip died a few years back.” I said “What??” He responded, “Chip committed suicide.”
The phone went dead and then was littered with mutterings and discordant sounds of confusion searching for balance in a world of unmeaning and finite abandonment. Where is the corner post as my outreached arms flailed and my hands grabbed at the inanimate air? Continue Reading
He shouts,”THANKSGIVING for what?” one student asks in a California Public School. The teacher hints the answer to try and boost this student’s self-esteem and reminds him and his Goth girlfriend with,” they sailed here, remember?” He smirks, with the doofus eye lids drooping and the blunt ingested smile, “why sail when you can take a plane?” (He roars at his humor) His Goth Girlfriend chimed in, “yeah, or they could not afford their luggage.”(Guffaw…..)The teacher smiles,.knowing that time and cultures have changed and perhaps she should move on in this class.
Thanksgiving used to be an acknowledgement of DIVINE GOODNESS. Of course in America we celebrated the good harvest with the Pilgrims and Indians. Reminds me of someone who recently stated that the definition of a terrorist seems to be in the eye of the beholder doesn’t it? Jokes about Thanksgiving are plenty and boring like what car did the Puritans buy and the answer is of course Plymouth, or what kind of Tan did they have and of course the answer is Puri – TAN.
