Tom Wilson, All American Boy (Aboveground Records, 1982)

This album cover is like Wilson's Flickr page. He photographs the minutiae of his daily life in the vain hope someone will be interested. Which picture will get the most views? Tom rakishly raking leaves? Showing his wacky side with an inverted phone chat? Doing his best Borat impersonation on the push-mower? The quick mid-jog look over the shoulder, just to make sure you're looking at his ass?


I sure hope Wilson accepts me as a Contact. Better yet, a Friend. If his public pics are this good, who knows what has in his private friends-only account!

Where are They Now?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
