Here is Autonomedia's website.

Founding member of "legendary" writing group, The Unbearable Beatniks of Light ("Unbearables"). He has written for many magazines, journals and zines. He has written about art, politics, music, culture, while holding down oddjobs (or is it that those oddjobs held him?) such as foot messenger in Manhattan, forest management in the heart of Southern France, foundryworker in Flint, MI, proofreading in Amsterdam, streetsweeper in Ann Arbor, once hung blinds for Max Ernst's daughter-in-law, and painted tractor and automobile tires for auto shows (call it automotive makeup art?). This certainly became the most surreal and absurd job when I had to be on hands and knees on the Champs Elysees painting big tractor tires black before a crowd of thousands and with the entire Champs' length planted with wheat!!! And through it all writing has been there to taunt, mock and tease him.
