Here are some things about me

I live in Madison, Wisconsin. 


I do not tackle anywhere near enough people into snowbanks.


I cook amazing stuff but am not a foodie. I know a lot of Star Trek stuff but am not a Trekkie. 


I spent my early years in Iowa and most of my adulthood in Brooklyn, New York. It was in the latter I  began my music "career" with The Hangdogs. After a hard slog through the starter clubs, we gained a modicum of band-to-watch buzz, mostly on the strength of our live shows, which were profantiy-strewn, sweaty and sometimes audience-inclusive. After a while, we made some pretty good music. 


I made a living for a while as a business journalist. I won an ASBPE Silver award once for my regular work for American Demographics in the early 2000s. I am not even kidding about this. 


I am at my most ambitious a guerrilla in a revolution of common sense that began when monkeymen first figured out they each could kill a deer and live another week or they could all surround a mastodon and live through the winter.


I find dogma to be not only anathema to society and ideas but also  goddamn boring. 


The answer to about 78% of all my questions to dogs and cats is, "That is my furry tummy."


I try to use the word "vagina" a lot because, it turns out, the worst people in the world don't like it when you do.


I think the world misses Bill Hicks more than it will ever know.


I think it is fantastic that we as a society get our moralistic lectures on how-things-work from people thumping books written by people who had yet to invent pants and no clue where the big thing in the sky went at night.


Playing Civilization IV has left me with semi-regular manic urges to invade Greece. I fucking need those iron mines, Alexander, you condescending prick.



If you would like to know more about me or book me to play a show, or your house, or your wedding, or perform your wedding, please zip me an email to start off.
