  1. Hi Friends. I met you in the Tim Horton’s on Bloor St a few Sundays ago. I just finished an independant recording of my music, and I’m happy with it. The time has come for me to share my paradise with other human animals hungry for food that keeps them alive, true and well.

    This is the God in me speaking to the God in you … arise Great Beast of the Land of the True North Strong and Free.

    Can we meet soon?

  2. I listed to the podcast interview and I remember seeing this guy downtown. I did a google on him and found some interesting web sites. A long forum where zanta, his ex, nieghbors and friends get into some heated debates can be found here;

    I think this goes to show you there is always more than meets the eye. I don’t know if he is harmless or a menace and peoples comments on forums can’t be taken for face value. For sure there is more going on than what we can glean from an interview and reading a forum.
