About

My name is Brian Hischier.  I thought I’d introduce myself formally. Hello.

Rather than go into several paragraphs explaining who I am and who I amn’t, I thought I’d give you a quick list of things About Me.

THE LIST OF THINGS ABOUT BRIAN HISCHIER THAT MIGHT BE RELEVANT TO YOU AND YOUR DECISION TO KEEP READING THIS WEBSITE.

  1. I like long titles (for example, see this list title)
  2. I like to make art (for example, see my work over here at The Amnesium)
  3. I focus on too many things, thus adding to the devastation our culture has wreaked on the word “focus”
  4. I can’t stop writing about art.
  5. can stop writing about everything else.
  6. Except fiction. I love writing fiction.
  7. I am 6’1″

That was easy. (Of course, I just copied it from my Wikipedia page. I can steal that stuff right? It’s not really written by humans, is it? Can a machine hold a copyright? Can a machine sneeze?)
