Dominic-Angerame -''sounds like imagery from a sci fi story''

Yeah, it was about the time Brazil was released and I did not even liked
that movie...
Forget to say the son of one of the (bankrupt) partners was the only person
present in the whole facility as it was vacated, he was a die hard Punk who
wore the standard issue punk look (very dated by 1988) even wearing shades
indoors... The guy looked like one of those Blade Runner extras, very tall
and pale.
At least he was a nice person, but must people who showed up to pick up
material freaked out when they saw him.
