sparse details make for sparse interest.

unless this description interests you, in which case i am completely mistaken.

suprisingly, this girl was willing to marry me.

    "The world's second greatest comedy Nazi, after Allo Allo's Herr Flick, striatic is blessed with a rather peculiar walk, that has more than a little to do with over-starching his trousers.

    "Iron fist in the velvet glove" is his motto and this is reflected in his dress sense. He's one of the few people who can get away with it without people laughing in his face. Mainly because he's very tall, they generally laugh in his chest.

    He also gives the best internet huggles-wuggles. Don't mess with that."

    The Paper Doll says:

    "...he thinks in the same way that cows digest. Information is taken in, digested a bit, brought up again for thought, stowed away, rethought of, compartmentalized, disected, masticated, and finally, after it's been completely divested of all it's components, it makes it's way out again in different form.

    I rather like it when it manifests itself visually."

    "i have come to the conclusion that striatic is, in reality, the spiritual head of flickr. it came to me in a dream.. an epiphany (in which his bowler hat had a pivotal role).

    while he does not work for flickr, there can be no contention about this.... like the dalai lama and tibet (ignoring the chinese & exhile).

    my next project will be to get him listed in the wikipedia entry for 'Bowler hat' under the 'Famous uses' section."

    If making flickr a fun place to be wasn't enough, just get a look at the hat & tie. Hott!"

    "I want to be more like striatic. Each and every one of his pictures brings to me a whirl of inspiration and laughter and tears and pure joy. The man himself is a beautiful piece of art, full of odd surprises and one of a kind quirks. Whenever I’m feeling sad I come here to see more of straiatic's pictures… and there’s always more of his pictures to see… and that fact alone inspires me to get outside and take more pictures. And that makes me happy.

    Oh yeah, and his girlfriend is such a hottie."

    How can I be so amiss in waiting this long to leave a testimonial for flickr's first gentleman? If he weren't so techno-ice-hip, I'd claim he was Fred Astaire in disguise."

    "Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Others stay a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same. ------Flavia
    Striatic's has stayed a very long while and has left the deepest impression in my heart and my mind. Because of him, over these many years, I have learned so much more than I ever thought I could. His inquistive, always thinking mind has opened so many doors for me. Now that he is far away from home, it has been great to have Flickr where not only do I get to see what he is up to each day but once again I get to partake in the dialogue and the experience of Striatic. I am so pleased that others also see him for the special person he is. On Flickr, it looks like he is leaving footprints on many hearts and minds."

    "Multifaceted as well as striated, this gentleman cuts a large swath. Though a fantastic still photographer, I wonder if he doesn’t have a filmmaker’s soul (...Peter Jackson’s, who called by the way and said he wants his soul back now.) I think this thought about striatic being a closet filmmaker because I know he has training, and of late he has found innovative ways of making still pictures move using the one tool Flickr gives him – the slideshow. For examples see his wonderful “ghostwriter” set, or the group “squared circle.” Moving or still, his photographs amaze me and inspire me. Keen-eyed, he spots what is interesting. He is intelligent, funny, sweet, well spoken, and generous. He’s a wonder and a pleasure to know, albeit virtually. Do you think he has a clone working alongside him? Personally, I cannot figure out how he is in so many places at one time, but I’m glad he is."

    I haven't written a testimonial for striatic yet? What's wrong with me?

    He's one of the nicest, most intelligent, and most creative people I know. You can throw any idea to stri, and he'll throw it right back 'atcha with a few dozen improvements, suggestions, and comments, all written neatly in ink and politely phrased. Striatic, to put it simply, rocks."

    "striatic is a gentleman - and a fine photographer.

    i once crossed swords with him in Guernica over a minor semantic disagreement. He dispatched my weapon with an effortless flick(r) of the wrist, retrieved my sword (and my pride) and offered them back. as i recall he spotted me a glass of Jerez to smooth things over.

    i would provide a grand jury alibi for Striatic if asked."

These days he prefers to dedicate himself to helping inner city children achieve their full potential as fiendish supervillans."
