Hello Technocove readers, I have a special treat for you guys. While I was at the Star Trek convention I saw someone wearing a shirt based on a story I had seen online. I went up and asked if he was one of the guys pictured on the shirt, and he said yes. This man is John Wardlaw, one of five guys who would go on to be read about on the internet and featured on national television. You can listen to the interview below.[soundcloud params="auto_play=true&show_comments=true&color=0ac4ff"]http://soundcloud.com/aaron-michael-rowe/interview-with-john-wardlaw[/soundcloud]
The Five Year Photo involves from left to right: John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molony, John Dickson. They decided to take a funny photo and had no intention on turning it into a tradition, but every year since 1982 they have taken the same photo at the same spot in the same poses. It’s quite an uplifting story of lifetime friendships. Its nice to see this kind of positive press, we need more stuff like this. I would like to give a huge thank you to John for taking the time to do this interview with me.
