Las palabras no bastan para decir todo lo que siento para este amiguisimo Ron, que siento en el alma y en las entrañas, muy mía, muy mía. Através del océano, desde las profundidades del mar me llega su canto.

Ron reminded me that if I want something
I have to make the effort.
Thank You Ron.

Ron is a MAN of his words,,

Ron Rocks !!!

Ron is a man of sweet hunger and I find that absolutely enticing!

Ron is Total Godhead.

He's cool.
He's silly.
He's smart.
He's musical. He likes games and anime.
Did I say he was funny?

Ron's my kind of geek.
He's one of my favorite people to play phone tag with.

AND I trust him near my computer.

Rock-and-Roll is the Bomb. Ron is the Detonator.

In the time i've known him i've had three mild strokes and one bruised knee as the result of his perpetual insistence on creating insanely ridiculous noise and/or humorous faces, causing great disruptive bouts of gut-achingly gregarious guffaws and brays, challenged only by the greatest of Gold Country Miners' Pack Mules.

plus, he gets my jokes... and that's sayin sumthin...

he ranks highly among the top ten most-brilliant people i know, not distinguishing between those with patents and those without.

he has a vast collection of black tshirts.

just don't ask him to pick a tie for you.

Words to live by...

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams; live the life you have imagined." - Henry David Thoreau

"My eyes..... are flame.... My heart...... is flame....." -Mr Spock

"The thermometer of success is the jealousy of the malcontents" - Salvador Dali

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - from the book "Dune"

"Great minds have purposes; others have wishes." - Washington Irving

"Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow" - Plato

"We may be humans, but we are still animals" - Steve Vai from For The Love Of God

"It looks friendly, but it's NOT!" - Dr. Boyfriend

"Privacy was over 40 years ago." - Francine Hardaway, Phd

"To be a musician is a curse. To NOT be one is even worse."- Jack Daney

"Some days you get up and put the horn to your chops and it sounds pretty good and you win. Some days you try and nothing works and the horn wins. This goes on and on and then you die and the horn wins." - Dizzy Gillespie on playing the trumpet

about me
Pisces Sun, Sag Moon, Cancer Rising, Venus in Aries, Mars in Scorpio.

I'm a geek, and I can prove it. Been working very hard on my music demo, and I'm interested in meeting other musicians (specially singers) to collaborate with. I have an obession with Anime, and am a self taught 3D animator. If you like the arty type, I'm your man. Love to cook, make a killer expresso, latte, capucchino. I appreciate intelligent people, have a natural aversion to stupid people.

Have been doing cross-platform computer consulting since 1997. My company is well established here in the Bay Area, and I'm trying to grow it again. Tried to grow during the end of the "dot bomb" era, with tragic results. This time I'm taking the growth process very slowly and making sure that I have the incoming business to support growing. We provide end to end outsource IT services to businesses all over Northern California.

Have a few pet film projects I've been working on for many years now, including a powerful and controversial documentary I'm in the process of finding funding to do.

I am a 420 MMJ activist type so if you are offended by that, we shouldn't even bother.

Divorced, with a daughter that lives with mom in Folsom, CA. I'm 6'0" in decent shape for my age, strong of back, and not afraid to do heavy work. I have a fetish for clean laundry. Oh, and a few other fetishes as well hehe...

Recently made some of my personal poetry available to read for my non friends. All works are © Dial 911 Productions 2011 All Rights Reserved.

Stare a while into a clear pool of water
See the universe reflected in it's surface
Play a different string for a while
Surf a different cosmic wave

1 million channels of pure bliss
Raining down like pinata candy
Find the tuner for your frequency
Scan all available bands

Thoughts fly out like freed birds
Channels flip and come into focus
Static burns the backs of eyes
Commercials give way to the final show

Pretty colors flow in waves
Electrons dance a sequenced glow

The knife cuts
The thorns protect
A gentle flower
With it's sweet perfume

Scars make stronger tissue
Wounds teach us to respect the blades
Yet we open our hearts
Again and again

Without fear or remorse
Without shame or indignity
We give ourselves to love
And endure it's sharp edges

Perhaps one day
The swordsman will put down the blade
Perhaps one day
The cuts and wounds will heal

I lay my sword at your feet
And suffer my wounds
In the light of your sweet smile
I wil... read more

Mighty blade
Swift strokes
Cut away the mysteries
Reality unfolds

Sharp edge
Keen eyes
Lightning reflexes
Parried blows

Gleaming edge
Dancing glow
Weapon twirling
Dance with my foe

Practiced movements
Mastered forms
Talent unyielding
Magic sword

King of Swords laughing
Merry tones
Metal clashing
Feinted stroke

Bladed Kingdom
Steel unfurled
Weapon shining
Armor and furs

I am this day
The King of Swords
I will always remember
To serve those I command

There is madness in infinity
There is a universe in a single drop of rain
There is a pattern if you watch the dancing flame
There is the answer in a still pool of water's surface

Feel the Divine Love flow from you as it does from us all
Feel the touch of the Sun Goddess Hand
Shining down on you like sunshine
Illuminating your path

Starlight shines
Moonlight glows
Sunshine beams
Destiny unfolds

Flames dance
Ashes are read
Tea leaves swirl
Answers are told

Time flows
Eternity manifests
We are
Children of the stars

Smile sweet medium
Share your sights
The gods await
On this blessed night...

Seconds flow into minutes
Minutes flow into hours
Seas flow over the sea floor
Earth moves over its core

Winter flows into Spring
Years flow into Decades
Time flows into Eternity
It's just a blink in the eye of a tree

Thoughts flow into actions
Words flow into songs
Wind flows across a desert
Stop and watch our footprints dissolve

Children flow into parenthood
Tides flow into the shores
Moonlight flows into my heart
I watch and wait for my love to return

Amazon Goddess
Fiercely loyal
Always at my side

Arrows true
Eyes sharp
Shoot a hummingbird in the dark

Fearsome warrior
Matchless skills
Dances past monsters as she kills

Darling Kundri
Queen of my heart
If only you weren't 200 pixels tall...

The hum of strings
A crackle of sound
The din of drums
Heard all around

Flames from my mouth
Notes billow forth
Vibrations flow
Magnetic torch

Fingers flying
Rock and Roll
Flames leap out
From the depths of my soul

Colors dance
The crowd roars
Inspiration flashes
Music soars

A channel opens
Another show
When is the next one?
Goddess only knows

Beautiful garden
Peaceful scenes
Happy kitties
Blissful dreams

So much love
So drama free
A pure delight
Won't you come see?

The Cottage of Love
The factory of dreams
Tonight I feel
How beautiful it seems...

She wakes me gently with a warm kiss
She fills my eyes with her presence
Winter's fury can do nothing to stop her
She only needs a moment
To spread her love over
Every leaf and blade of grass

Her smile is blinding
Her heat indominable
She fills me up with light and hope
Her energy sustains me
Her power sustains us all
As she rests, so do we
