Beer and Wine

Wobbly 9 from Outer Space
What up? Call me Cullen, Cakes, Bones... or something else.

I spend my time at my job, at school, with my friends at parties, tightpockets, or just plain chillin', playing drums and music, and making art and prints.

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it... But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

- Declaration of Independence

Second, I am an artist, a printmaker. Printer. Anything to do with ink, I love it. Give me some ink and a blanket and i'll give you a magazine. (printer's joke. eh? eh?) I mostly do screenprinting. In my art, I mostly express my views on social and political issues. SO really give me some ink and a tshirt and I'll make you a design on it or a bunch of patches.

Third, I am a musician, and damn proud of it. Mostly drums. I have been playing the drums for 7 years and keep the rhythm with ska music. I play various other instruments as well. Including, keyboards, didjeridu, harmonica, and the accordian.

Fourth, I am very much deaf in my right ear. I began to play trombone and got pretty good at it over a week or two. I was playing Rico's solo on "Rudi, a Message to you" and the doctor said that it might've had somethign to do with the air pressure in my middle ear. But what happened to my ear was the oval window and round window were both slightly ruptured (called a fistula (a leak)) and subjected to trauma. The hair cells inside the choclear was subject to trauma, as well, resulting in tinitis (ringing). I was not aware of the round window fistula until the exploritory surgery. In the surgery, they discovered that the oval window fistula had healed, and so they took fat from behind my ear and reinforced it and the round window as well. My hearing has improved some. When i listen to earphones, in my right ear it sounds like you were to listen to a stereo crancked up all the way from an adjacent room. Mostly bass. The tinitis will never sease, so I have to live with ringing in my right ear for the rest of my life. This is depressing if you think about it too much, that's why I just drown it out and get on with my life. This is not the most important to me, but, because of it's biological and anotomical nature, took the longest to explain.

And now some pictures and song quotes that can elaborate on my personality.

One more thing...

Meet Stella. She is hot.

Madness is Love.

that "gost" thing. heidi's username. that was mine.

and now, mistakes:

1. ska came before reggae. and did not start in england.
2. not all skinheads are neo-nazi, racist, nationalist, or fascist. only the dumb ones.
3. NO DOUBT is not SKA!
4. bush is NOT the president.
5. don't be down.
