Best story from behind the wood | Served Megadeath and Vinnie Paul. Served a celebrity crush from my high school years. Was tipped a large fur hat. Was offered sex. Had the whole bar singing Guns N’ Roses. An international male escort once tried to recruit me. Was tipped a pocket full of cash and box tickets to Arcade Fire. And many more…

What do you collect? Books
Favourite thing about your city? Coming from Winnipeg, I have to say I love the building density.
What was the last photo that you took? A shirt with the Bauhaus logo turned into the face of Milhouse. (Milhaus)
Where was your last vacation? Winnipeg
Any claims to fame? I once walked an hour and a half in -62C weather (windchill included) to get home after my phone died and I got locked out of a buddy’s apartment. No gloves, no winter jacket. Could feel hypothermia setting in when my body began to warm up. Barely made it home. It was so cold that no cars or buses were running. Some might say that I’m a survivor. I think I’m just and idiot for not having proper winter wear. PS: Meditation is key to surviving extreme cold.
