i’ve known about this guy for a while: his name is Howard Tayler, he is the author of the web-comic Schlock Mercenary, and he looks like me… or i look like him, or something like that.
originally, it was pointed out that i looked like him when i posted a (now deleted, but reproduced here) photo here, in january, 2006, and when i sent the same photo to howard, he said that it looked similar enough to him that he started going through his photos, trying to figure out where it was taken.
eventually he shaved his beard, and we didn’t look so similar any longer.
but, recently, he’s either grown a beard again, or has a very accomplished makeup artist that has fashioned an appliance for him, because, once again, we look similar — except now he looks even more like me… in fact, i get the impression that he may be trying to look like me!
it is very creepy…
here’s a pingback to his blog. maybe, he will have something to say about this odd coincidence.
One thought on “this guy looks like me…”
*way* back in the day (like early 80’s) I was living in Everett and still doing my magic act. I also had a job as a nurse’s aide at a senior home. I arrived for work one evening and my co-workers were all congratulating me on my upcoming magic gig. this was confusing because I didn’t *have* an upcoming magic gig. they show me the Everett Herald and there’s an article about this local magician (and his upcoming gig). dude was like the spit and image of me!
two magicians in Everett that were doppelgangers? who’d have thunk it?
never did meet the guy but I hope he’s still doing well.
