Ego of the week: Gabe Head

Street: If you could write your own superlative, what would it be? GH: “Tired of being introduced as the guy with the fellacious name.” Street: What was your first reaction when you found out what your superlative was? GH: I got three mentions! Street: In high school you were most likely to…? GH: “Star in a pornographic film.” Street: What do you plan to name your children? GH: Anything but Gabe. Street: Why not just go by Gabriel? GH: Because then I would never be in 34th Street. Street: When did you realize that your name might be the potential source of amusement for others / yourself? GH: My seventh grade teacher gave me the hilarious nickname of “Give ‘em.” Street: Who’s the coolest person you’ve ever met?

We (Don't) Have to Take Our Clothes Off!
