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."

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.

I just uploaded the new http://davidraffin.com/ main site. Cleaner. Suspiciously based on the previous design. But better. Also includes a page where I endorse the art of my friends.

I believe in multiple universes, but I am willing to give this belief up if it’s proved otherwise or if all the other universes are destroyed. All I ask is that you refrain from destroying all other parallel universes just to prove your point.

This is a demo for a radio program from about two years ago. Henry Rollins was not harmed during the recording of this show, nor was the Dalai Lama. Also, a song is sung.

I’m sorry I did not make our scheduled appointment. My absence was unavoidable. Our appointment, unfortunately, fell immediately after my earlier appointment with the Medusa. I could not make our appointment because I had turned to stone. I don’t like ……

I don’t know if you can tell this just by looking, but I move my mouth through a process of mind control. The fact that you can’t tell this, it seems seamless, is part of the art; or rather, the … Continue reading →
