This week’s painting, Ace, according to Reverend Speefnarkle:
I took break dancing lessons from Ace in 1984. He claimed to know Ozone and Turbo (The Boogaloo Shrimp). My best friend Lithium Jim was in the class also. Lithium mastered the knee spin and I specialized in poppin’ and lockin’. The class eventually ended because Ace had to train for his big role in Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo. Lithium and I practiced by ourselves next to the dog run in his backyard. I can still remember the smell of dusty dog turds. -Rev
