Condorman was a fun - if ultimately silly and doomed to obscurity - movie. It's such a shame they couldn't be bothered to give it a decent digital transfer.
So, a chubby guy, with a hole in his pants, decides to do a flying kick, at what appears to be a coding party. Is that the most perfect setup for a photo? I say yes, but who was he?!
Rod Douglas was born in 1947, suspiciously about one week after Aleister Crowley, famous British occultist and believer in reincarnation, died. I’m not linking the two but it’s worth remembering. He died in August this year, so I wrote a eulogy, you're welcome to read it.
