About Us

When not worshipping at the altar of the great bard or his other personal idol, the X-men's Wolverine, Marcus dreams of riding on a horse in a suit of armour, sings with choral ensemble Tone Culture and plays the piano and the guitar. He also said something about the "fantasies explored in Diablo" and something else about Derrida being "intriguing and incomprehensible" but I am too confused to understand exactly what he's talking about or explain it to you...
