My self-summary
Everything I do with a passion, a weight of which that would crush a weaker person. I live outside of the ordinary, much of society brings me no comfort. My heart sings to a beauty most strange, that of which I still relentlessly seek. To hear your call I would search anywhere. To find who you are I will not relent, no matter how far and long...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These days you have to find the best of what is still around.

I feel great solace and an attraction to nostalgia, the way things use to be. I collect albums on Record, and Tape. Nothing surpasses the range, presence, and warmth of an analog recording.

I greatly admire decades long passed, the few people that know me often say I look and feel as if from the past, as well I know more about before I was born than my own time on earth.

I am Cynical, Loyal, and Hell Bent
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Discipline was drawing and painting, traditional with non-traditional subject matter would best describe my work. Sadly the discipline is truly marginalized today...

Currently work as the Hardware Manager and Lead Fabricator at a fabric branding company.

I live on my own, I spend some of my spare time working on and maintaining my classic car; 1985 Cutlass Supreme Coupe. As well on occasion I repair vintage electronics and rescue retro furniture (mainly midcentury modern), which I fix and restore while maintaining some of the character of its age.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, such as electronics and mechanical devices.

Remembering information, some would say useless information.

Alienating myself and putting people at a disbalance with my words and transparency.
The first things people usually notice about me
In all honesty I'm eccentric...

Still use a Polaroid SX-70 (thanks Impossible Project!), and high-end 80's Walkmans.

I mainly wear black Levi's and solids.

I have long hair and it can get wild in the wind.

I'm Science in Stereo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The greatest piece of cinema ever made: Blade Runner, this film is by so far my favourite that nothing even comes close. I always like a great art film including; Drive, Dune, Beyond the Black Rainbow, The Holy Mountain, Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), Heavy Metal, Xtro, Legend, The Keep, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Fifth Element, Fantastic Planet, A Clockwork Orange, and many more...

Shows: Anything by Gerry & Sylvia Anderson, Miami Vice; but maybe more fairly, Carl Sagan's Cosmos. I don't watch programmed television, not for years, it will distract you and melt your brain.

Music is my ambrosia, the genres I really enjoy are, Progressive/Art Rock, Metal, Psychedelic Rock, and Early Synth/Electronic. I like to Relax to the Avant-garde genres, primarily I listen to Progressive Rock, nothing moves me more than the ominous sustain of a Mellotron. I could go on forever but to name a few artists/bands I can't live without; Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Van Der Graaf Generator, Eloy, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Opeth, Aorta, Gandalf, The Zombies, The Moody Blues, Yes, Asia, Gentle Giant, Le Orme, Astra, Blue Oyster Cult, Rush, Hawkwind, Saga, ELO, David Bowie, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, The Fixx, Boston, Tame Impala, The Cars, The Beach Boys, Ultravox, April Wine, The Monks (60s), Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry and...

I absolutely adore Roxy Music's album Avalon, beautiful, just beautiful. "Sometimes I get so blue, People say I'm just a fool. All the world, even you, Should learn to love the way I do".

I'm completely enamored with the psychedelic album Gandalf (1969). It is something special I will hold dear until my last day.
The six things I could never do without
Difficult to choose, here is my attempt.
(In no particular order):

-My Music, so many beautiful albums.

-My Classic Car (1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme), it continues to act as a surrogate for a relationship. It has proven to be more reliable than anyone else.

-Self reflection... In the quietest moments, clarity through reflection.

-Tool Chest/box

-The few family and friends I have. Family is very small by fate, friends are very few by design.

-The memories of all the things that happened to me, and all that I have seen...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The importance of what truly makes us human; memories, empathy... love.
And why so many people are inhuman.
On a typical Friday night I am
Leading the Nightmare Patrol

Going for a night drive in my Cutlass with no intentions.

Staying up late by the fireplace with a few drinks, and probably falling asleep watching a favourite film or listening to an album.
You should message me if
You listen to beautiful albums on vinyl!

If your soul was from a time past and adore the fine points of then.

If you are a genuine person, have good intentions, and think we would honestly compliment each other... I'm a madman with a conscience.

And... Please don't message me if you plan on being desultory. My prologue should have set the precedence.
