Favorite quote:

"Regarding my actions in this world, I care little about the existence of a heaven or hell; self-respect does not allow me to guide my acts with an eye toward heavenly salvation or hellish punishment. I pursue the good because it is beautiful and attracts me, and shun the bad because it is ugly and repulsive. All our acts should originate from the spring of unselfish love, whether there be continuation after death or not."
-- Heinrich Hein

Favorite music: Tangerine Dream, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Stewart Copeland, Patty Larkin, Deep Purple, The Spin Doctors, Jethro Tull (can you tell I cut my musical teeth in the '70s?), The Cult, Faith and the Muse, Bloodrock/Nitzinger, Roy Buchanan, Mussorgsky, Saint-Saens, Mahler (especially the 1st Symphony), Leo Kottke, Pete Townshend, and The Who.

Real nameTM: Gary A. Braunbeck.
