Hey, it's Gordo here (the less handsome, smaller,
punier one with stinky feet but a heart of gold), wishing you all a
great holiday season. I don't care which holiday it is, or near, right
now; all I know is that YOU deserve the best! Me too, dammit.
When I'm not being Fast nor Dirty, I like to cuddle up with a good book.
Especially if it has big tit...le pages.
Scrap that, let me start again.
I enjoy being creative, with visual art (both old-fashioned painting
and doodling, and with computers), music (keyboards & guitars),
and love experimenting with computer stuff (audio and video file creation/manipulation,
layout, etc.). If I could Photoshop aspects of my life (starting with
the hairline), I'd be one happier puppy.
I enjoy improv, sketch, comedic songs and solo bits too. I consider
myself very lucky doing comedy in this burg in that I know a lot of
very funny and cool people, and I don't say that just cuz I'm trying
to suck up to them.
Quickie Gordo trivia: I am exactly 3 weeks younger than Toronto Maple Leafs star goalie Ed Belfour, and he and I were born in the same one-horse town in Manitoba. We didn't grow up together or anything, but I still find that cool. Eddie ... Eddie...
There are too many things I like, but a very short list of cool would
include (in no particular order): the Simpsons, Larry Sanders, Sopranos, Matrix (1st movie),
jogging (when my knees co-operate), playing/learning guitar, Amsterdam, Sydney (Aus), New Zealand,
Beatles, John Lennon, Neil Young, Mozart, Alanis, Frank Gehry, CBC, James Burke's
"Connections" series, Sigourney Weaver, Samuel L. Jackson,
The Museum of Bad Art, hot loving sex, Theatresports, salmon, chicken,
pasta, white and red wine, liquors and beers of the world, Susan Sarandon,
Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show", Dennis Miller, Chris Rock,
Python, SCTV, old SNL, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Win Ben Stein's Money, Puppets Who Kill, The Last Word with Maureen Holloway, Black Adder, Fark, Strong Bad's e-mails, Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s Breakfast of Champions, innumerable local performers and SO MUCH MORE. Plus, if you order RIGHT NOW we'll also throw in some Ginsu knives and spray-on
Send me an e-mail if you
Take care. Bundle up if it's cold; have a cold one if it's hot.
