TWIRP stood for “the woman is requested to pay” by the way. TWIRP season was one week a year, usually February (probably because it was like the leap year proposal tradition) but depending on the area it could be any time of year. During the week girls would do the courting, opening doors for boys, paying for dates - dance tickets and movie tickets, carrying their school books, and it usually culminated with a Sadie Hawkins dance. The ritual is said to have been popularized seen in the comic strip Freckles and His Friends (similar to Archie).

I was thinking about this today actually. I’ve been so busy between studios. Landed the other day when I had a week vacation – landed at noon and went straight to a rehearsal room with my new band for 6 or 7 hours. The album was long days, so we were recording everything live full band. We’re talking 11/12 hour days, everyday which is like work, studio, home, bed, eat, you know. [I have] no time for Tinder.

For the second time in his life, River was looking very uncomfortable in a tuxedo and bow tie. His hair was much, much longer than his date’s! Some magazines criticized him for not cutting his hair or styling it better for the televised ceremony, but others simply said, “That’s River- independent.”

“Denis Beauvais’s ‘The Draw’ is actually a self-portrait.  Denis is wearing one of his (quite real) fantasy costumes in the role of the black king.”  This is his fourth fantasy chess cover for Dragon magazine dated 1984 under his signature, but it did not appear until issue 118 in February 1987.
