Who does all this? Who knows... I have my own ideas & philosophies, which I'll eventually get around to putting up. This is here for now just to say that I am me, he is you, we are all painting, I have the brush


This is who I was for a long time, too long, I'd say...

Sci-Fi Self-Portait

Just another face.. a chameleon, always flowing with the tides, not having 2 feet to stand on. Always an image of what others wanted me to be. But now, "I've seen blue skies through the tears in my eyes, and I realize.. I'm going home" (Richard O'Brien) "Insecurity, it once was you, it's always me, I saw you in my book, a manual of how to look"(Leitch/Nesmith) "When he's not on the street, he pays for the heat, he's just a jeep boy searching for a tank girl"(Leitch/Nesmith/Mogg)

That is to say, I have held no true identity, a poor boy from Status Symbol Land, trapped by the 'society' he finds false, in a cage with no bars. Johnny Chrome & Silver... Trying to get the silver spoon out of his mouth before he chokes. I have lots of different views, many of them I can't get into right now, 'cause I don't know where to start. Oh well... I'll try this:

What is an artist? "An artist stamps a human signature on the face of the universe" - Andre Malraux Well.... an artist is anyone who has something to say. Hopefully we all do something with our lives, as John Keating said: "The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be, lads?" We're all here for something so why not speak our minds?

These are some quotes that I live with (& for) every day...

"'Normal' is what everyone else is, and you are not" - Dr. Tolian Soran

"Writers are engineers of the soul" - Josef Stalin

"You could never be an artist... you have no beard!" - Michael Bell

"Sculpture is a drawing that you trip over in the dark" - Al Hirschfeld

"There is no real life for a man who works twelve hours a day without knowing why he works" - Andre Malraux

"The gallys make the gally slave" - Orson Welles

"Why is it that whatever we don't understand is always called a 'thing'?" - Leonard McCoy

"You must unlearn what you have learned" - Yoda

"I've never heard of sex being associated with breakfast cereal" - Lowell Bodger

"If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me? .. My nipples explode with delight!!" - Hungarian/English Dictionary

"It ain't how many times ya get knocked down, it's how many times ya can get up" - Bobby Heenan


A more accurate portrait, more abstractly... who I admire, what I identify with, hopefully who I am, who I want to be... but there's still more to be told. Go ahead, click something to explore.

And, of course, I DO have an existance outside of the Web, although sometimes I don't feel like I do.. anyhow, I've got a few friends, and some of them can be found on their respective homepages (it IS easier this way). There's also some links to pages that I just happen to like a bunch .. click here to find them!
