Killin' Time with Brian O'Keeffe.

Who exactly is Brian O'Keeffe? It would probably be best to let him describe himself:
"I am an international personality, vanguard, dilettant. I am a vegetarian activist, gay-rights fan, marijuana advocate. I am Frank Correa's best friend!" -B.O. 2011

Yes, Brian is all of these things, and so much more. We had a whale of a time shopping in Cairo's treasure chest of goodies, mixing cool vintage threads with exciting new items (check out the grey and white striped tank from Alternative Apparel with the Saudi Arabia backpack… FYI you may be a little distracted by Brian's, uh, pants…)
We also got zen with some ultra-super-tight gold laced pants that created the perfect yogi outfit, and tee'd off with a pastel summer suit and some serious yellow socks.

Want to see what Brian does in his spare time? Take a look at his YouTube here. (There is some good Cairo footage tucked away in there too!)

What is your sign?
Aquarius, but I don't really follow any of that stuff.

A pink lab rat.

Definitely Great Spiders.

Where were you born?
I was born in a hospital across the street from where Charles Bukowski gambled away all his post office money: The Santa Anita racetrack.

I am always excited for the future… I'm just looking forward to 2018 when Blade Runner becomes real.

Stanley Kubrick, Ingmar Bergman, Louis Malle. All of them are deceased, all of them are directors.

What was your best Halloween costume?
Well, I was Van Gogh two years ago.

What is your favorite word?
I'll tell you my favorite sentence instead. It's "I love you", but it has to be directed towards me and it has to be sincere.

Ug, REM in 1988 at the Key Arena with my mom. I was not a fan.

I was in Robert Evan's bedroom once. I sat on his mink throw…

I did not attend the REM concert with my mother. Sadly I went with a friend but she did win the tickets and passed them on 2 moi! Mikey Stipe had a Mohawk hairdo and it was for their rekord 'Green'(?) at Key Arena n '88. I waz sober and 16. My mom is not hip 2 music, she couldn't name a single M.J. song when I quizzed her on his death. PS I did not enjoy the show and have never liked Rapid Eye Movement I am a SMITHZ FAN!
