About me:I travel across the country performing in comedy clubs. How about that. I'm a cast member on "Frank TV" on TBS, I've been on Letterman and Comedy Central, am a regular on the "Bob and Tom" Radio Show, and have provided voices for Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. I used to be an engineer, but you know how that goes. Eventually you end up on the fringes of the entertainment industry. Quicksand terrifies me and I'm not exactly sure why, since I've never encountered it. I love Germany and I love heavy metal but, strangely, I cannot stand The Scorpions. A friend of mine recently gave me a switchblade and I'm struggling to find a socially acceptable occasion to use it. Dogs rule, cats suck.
Who I'd like to meet:Rapscallions, Ne'er-do-wells, Rakes, Lazeabouts, Mountebanks, Longshoremen, Rogues, Banditos, Vagabonds, Outlanders, Hooligans, and Carpetbaggers. No gypsies, please.

GeneralEuropean microstates, Comedy, frowning on things, small boat sailing, old Germanic languages, history, the song "Mob Rules", creating hoaxes, not dancing, the "internet" (sp?), genealogy, kickin' it old school at the Laff Stop.
MusicRobert Fripp's guitar solo from "Baby's On Fire" by Brian Eno. The Entrance of Fasolt and Fafnir from "Das Rheingold" by Richard Wagner. That's all the music you need.
MoviesTop Gun is the worst movie ever made. Just wanted to get that out of the way up front. I have enjoyed my viewings of The Big Lebowski, The Empire Strikes Back, The Marx Brothers (Paramount years), Gladiator, Untergang, Dirty Harry, Goldfinger, Support Your Local Sheriff, Bottle Rocket, Deliverance, and Spider Man 2.
BooksCurrently reading "The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins and "American Slavery, American Freedom" by Edmund S. Morgan. And TMZ.com. Does that count as a book? [EDITOR'S NOTE: This is old as hell, but I realize I'm not going to update this part of my Myspace page regularly. Fuck you people.]
