Walk down the street. The man in front of you is disheveled and has wild hair. He speaks to himself, sometimes a mumble. Sometimes alternating volume. Sometimes abruptly stopping mid-sentence to wait a moment and start a seemingly unrelated sentence. Then…

When I get happy I do the Snoopy dance. That is how the tragedy occurred.

Two musical performances I would be excited to see: Triptykon and Donovan. Parse that.

Story
Tagline
Metaphysicist, Writer, Performer http://davidraffin.com
Introduction
Nothing bad has ever happened to me on Friday the 13th. Except for that one time at camp. 
... That was an anomaly.

The Northwest Examiner called me "A cross between Garrison Keillor and Salvador Dali." 

I'm a contributor to Funny Times, Rosebud magazine, and various other publications and anthologies.

I published a satirical journal, Vision? Nary!, which was reviewed positively by MaximumRock'n'Roll and the Joe Bob Report, newsletter of drive-in movie critic Joe Bob Briggs.

The Daily News:
 "David Raffin is hilarious." 

Peter Bacho (Author of "Cebu" "Dark Blue Suit") says of his writing: "Intelligent, humorous, and highly imaginative– always a pleasure to read."

The Daily Olympian:
"He’s not your average comedian."

Larry Ziak, KMUN:
"I nearly choked on my breakfast from laughing so hard."

Jodi Lamm (Author of “Titan Magic”):
"His perversions are oddly analytical."

Bragging rights
I am evolved from a monkey. I think that's pretty impressive. I put it on my resume. My resume is very long. It is quite a tale.
