Story
Tagline
Just another primate with a computer . . . delusions of grandeur . . . and not enough good sense to keep his opinions to himself.
Introduction

My "day-job" career has been as a commercial graphic designer. But I have an even greater passion for music. I began playing guitar at the tender age of 10, and had the same general influences as just about anyone else picking up the instrument in the mid-late 60s -- pop radio, the Beatles, Dylan, the Stones, Hendrix -- all of the usual musical touchstones. Be that as it may, something went rather wrong along the way. My brain is wired just a little bit differently. The same could be said for my other aesthetic sensibilities. As a painter, designer, writer, filmmaker -- all things I've tried my hand at -- I'm just a little bit too warped for my own good...but probably not truly warped enough (or cynical enough) to be commercially successful. But some folks find it interesting enough to seek out and listen to. Some have even seen fit to broadcast it on the radio in countries as far flung as Lithuania and Australia (and a considerable number of places between).

Basic Information

Male
Buffets generally don't have the best food in the world anyway - tending toward middle-of -the-road "meh" in quality and flavor - so, it was very surprising to me to find this place with such a good variety and great flavor. Medford doesn't have many decent, high-quality Asian restaurants. They're really all pretty doggone bland here. But this place rates at least 4 stars. Great food and pretty okay service. If you want a truly five star meal, you aren't likely to get one in Medford anyway.
