Indigo's Bio

Indigo's Bio

Name: Indigo---I was dubbed this in 1986 on the streets of Philadelphia by Peter Gabriel, as he was autographing a ticket for me--I'm sure he asked me my name, but I just stood there, gaping like a fish..he kissed me, though! It is a little-known song by him, from his second solo album...I have used it for 15 years now this coming November, to write and draw under, as well as many others..

Birthday: June 21, Year of the Cat--same year as Al--so don't say I'm THAT old!

Location: Amish Country, PA--for real..I know, I know...

Children: 2 quite amazing individuals

Siblings: 2 sisters, 1 brother

Pets: One lovely black cat named Sally--named for 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'

Favorite Music: THE CURE (Yes, and I was both shocked and blessed to have been kissed by the mad genius Robert Smith, in Pittsburgh, 1996--*sigh*), NIN, Peter Gabriel, Smashing Pumpkins, Powerman 5000--far too many to name, really..generally anything really dark and horrid and depressing, according to some people..haha..

Favorite Movies: Star Wars (I honestly believe in the Force), Psycho (Know that one by heart, too), Stand By Me, Singing In the Rain, The Wizard of Oz, The Ten Commandments, Monty Python and The Holy Grail, anything with Vincent Price and anything by Tim Burton

Hobbies: Drawing, writing, worrying over things I have no control over, embarrassing myself in public, and wrestling, wrestling, wrestling..

Favorite story to tell--AKA--How I got into wrestling: I was the most anti-wrestling person ever--totally didn't 'get it'..all snotty and Goth and artsy..BUT..In 1993, I went to a party with a friend in an unnamed city..long story less long--he disappeared and left me standing alone by this bookcase, knowing no one, looking like the penultimate dork with my iced tea, all in black..Well, here comes this huge blond creature..Perfectly mannered gentleman, talked non-stopped (Guess I met my match), jolly and funny and sharp as a dagger intellectually, insisted I try a Corona With A Lime thingie (I don't drink)...and ended up carrying me around all night quite good-naturedly, how embarrassing..said he was 'an athlete in show business'...Years later--friends were at my house, saying that they 'HAD' to watch I launched into Lecture #216, I looked over at the TV--and there was 'that guy'--I nearly died--changed forever my opinion of it all--I will never reveal his name, so don't bother..but it certainly wasn't Al Snow...but ever since then, I have been totally immersed, hooked for life...SPLAT!

Favorite Food: Coffee--24 hours a day! Hey..coffeebeans are vegetables, right?

Favorite Author: Anne Rice (The Goddess), Stephen King

Favorite Quotes: 'The bricks you lay today--are the house you live in tomorrow.'--Me, and 'I'm a Gay man, trapped in a woman's body,'--Anne Rice, and ' 'Cos nobody's gonna make me * * * *-ing quit.'---Al Snow

Embarrassing Factoid: I have a styrofoam HEAD in the back window of my car--it goes almost everywhere with't EVERYONE???
