    Is the description of Ryan Northcott for real? Who doesn’t drink coffee and beer once in a while? How is that interesting or different?”He’s the star of…. well…. nothing good, but…. ahhhh you get the point. He’s a guy, he does stuff, I dunno, just picture any late 20′s or early 30′s Canadian dude and you’ve pretty much got the picture…”Amazing.LOVE Ed Gorey though.

    Gorey’s Ghost and I collaborated on a song version of this pome. If you put it on a separate tab and scroll through these pictures in synchronization with the music, your brain will notice some extraordinary results!
