The inspired Head Carrier reaffirms all the spark, wit and weirdness, tempered by the occasional burst of emotional rawness, that made people fall in love with the Pixies in the first place.

Whenever you see a 'BEWARE OF THE DOG' sign you probably imagine some terrifying beast with sharp teeth. However, sometimes the reality is the opposite! But, that doesn't mean they won't kill you. These killers will ferociously attack you with their adorableness.

There is nothing funny about the real Donald Trump, a raisin company mascot channelling the spirit of an internet commenter.

Story
Introduction
Interested in language, music, movies, mathematics, computer gaming, and programming.

I listen to; and appreciate most music genres. But I have a soft spot for Alternative, Gothic Rock, World, Folk, and Indie. (Electronic or Instrumental Rock is my preference when I work)

I'm a tinkerer, thinker and easily distracted. I love building things (electronics) and fixing stuff (don't like to discard anything unless I can help it)

I use Linux, Windows and Mac OS X to run my hardware. But my "platform" of choice is Chrome (for now).

I also develop Mac and iOS applications, but use Android.

My favorite books: Ender's Game, Hitch Hiker's Guide, Faerie Tale, Catch-22, Nineteen eighty-four, Mistborn, Magician, Midnight's Children.

My favorite movies: Dead Man, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, 8 1/2, Third Man, Seven Samurai, My Neighbor Totoro, The Matrix, Mary Poppins, The Royal Tenenbaums, Three Colors Blue, City of Lost Children, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

My favorite computer games: WoW, Diablo, Quake, Starcraft, Borderlands, Skyrim, BioShock, Fallout, Druid (C64), Loom (Amiga), Elite (C64) and Dangerous.

Had to battle to get noticed, seated, and gave up trying to find someone to clean the table. Decided to just leave... the place smelled a bit off too. The bar area looked good... pity we wanted lunch I guess...

Was there for a convention , but was denied entry. The hotel parking was good and free at least.
