FOR SESSION GUITAR WORK - I am based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada but can travel abroad. 
I am available for session work for creating unique, original guitar tracks and sounds, as well as recording my own parts on ProTools Digi001 in several audio formats. Email: patd@shootingrubys.com
for details on fees. I can also provide back-up vocals, as well as lead vocal tracks if needed. 

Music has always been a great pivotal force in my life. Be it in the
greatest of times or the worst, there has always been a song to remember or associate to. I remember hearing "I am the walrus" in the back of my dad's Datsun when I was just a sprout, thinking "this is not like other songs I've heard". Mind you, I hadn't  heard many songs before then, but it didn't take a genius to figure out that these guys were up to something good. I'd like to make people feel that way when they hear our songs. If we can achieve that, I'll be a very happy person. 

I believe that I was brought up at the pinnacle of a great musical time.
A convergence was happening in the 70's. R&B, Rock, Disco, Funk, Punk, Metal, Reggae, Folk was all coming to be and I was lucky enough to have a taste of it all. My parents had a record collection that would run across the whole living room. I had "carte blanche" for listening rights. Sergeant Pepper, Pet Sounds and Sticky Fingers to a 7 year old, could be dangerous!

Little-known facts about Pat: 
- The most commonly used nickname for Pat is "Lance" (don't ask)
- He's a closet actor / actor wannabe with catalog of voices and impressions (not all of them are good). 
- He's had a modest appearance in HBO's Hiroshima.
- Did a great job of playing one of two corpses, around which the story of the Canadian movie 
  production "Savage Autumn" revolved. His character had been raped, stabbed 17 times and scalped.
  Folks who see the movie, say he's done a quite convincing job of playing dead. In his next feature 
  appearance, he'll be rolling over and catching biscuits in his mouth.
- Pat can fix anything with a paper clip, rubber band and gum. In fact, he's done a large part of the
  engineering of "Mood Swings and Cravings" using those very tools with the addition of a nylon stocking. 
- He once roadied for Jamaican Reggae Greats "The Wailers" (no joke)
- Pat sleeps on average 5 hours per night, sometimes less (no joke). - So did Benjamin Franklin.
- Has once worked as a dishwasher, a draftsman, a land surveyor, a commercial painter and musician...
  all in the same week (no joke).
- He once got bored and built a guitar (see below). Now dubbed the ACME Ass, because of it's choice 
  adorning chrome logos that were affixed only years after it's conception.

Resume of George W. Bush
February 26, 2004, 05:15 PM

Past Work Experience:
I ran for U.S. Congress and lost. I produced a Hollywood slasher B movie. I bought an oil company, but couldn't find any oil in Texas; the company went bankrupt shortly after I sold all my stock. I bought the Texas Rangers baseball team in a sweetheart deal that took land using taxpayer money. With my father's help and name, I was elected Governor of Texas.

Accomplishments as Governor:
I changed pollution laws in favor of the power and oil companies and made Texas the most polluted state in the Union. I replaced Los Angeles with Houston as the most smog-ridden city in America. I cut taxes and bankrupted Texas government to the tune of billions in borrowed money. I set the record for the most executions by any Governor in American history. I became U.S. President after losing the popular vote by over 500,000 votes with the help of major Enron money and my father's appointments to the Supreme Court.

Accomplishments as President:
I spent the U.S. surplus and effectively bankrupted the U.S. Treasury. I entered my office with the strongest economy in U.S. history and have turned every single economic category downward -- all in less than two years. I shattered the record for the largest annual deficit in U.S. history. I garnered the most sympathy for the U.S. after the World Trade Center attacks and less than a year later made the U.S. the most resented country in the world, possibly the largest failure of diplomacy in World history. I am the first president in U.S. history to enter office with a criminal record. I set the the all-time record for most days on vacation in any one year period. I am supporting development of a "Tactical Bunker Buster" nuke, a WMD. I am getting our troops killed, under the lie of Saddam's procurement of Yellow Cake Nuke WMD components, then blaming the lie on our British friends. I set the record for most campaign fund-raising trips by a U.S. president. In my first year in office over 2-million Americans l

Records and References:
I have at least one conviction for drunk driving in Maine. My Texas driving record has been erased and is not available. I was AWOL from the National Guard. I refuse to take a drug test or even answer any questions about drug use. All records of my tenure as Governor of Texas are now in my father's library, sealed, and unavailable for public view. All records of SEC investigations into insider trading or bankrupt companies are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public view. All records or minutes from meetings that I, or my Vice-President, attended regarding public energy policy are sealed in secrecy and unavailable for public review.

Please consider my experience when voting in 2004.

Show you care about our country's future and forward this to every voter you know.  Protest is patriotism.

The Top 10 Ways That Life Would Be Different If Microsoft Built Cars:

10. Seats would require everyone to have the same size butt.

9. We'd all have to switch to Microsoft Gas (tm).

8. The U.S. Government would be GETTING subsidies from an automaker.

7. The oil, alternator, gas, and engine warning light would be replaced by a
   single "General Car Fault" warning light.

6. Apple would make a car that was solar-powered, five times as reliable, ten
   times as fast, but would only run on 30% of the roads.

5. In order to upgrade anything, you would have to buy a whole new car.

4. You could only have one person in your car at a time, unless you bought
    Car XP or Car NT, but then, you'd have to buy more seats.

3. Every time the lines on the road were repainted, you'd have to buy a new car.

2. Occasionally, your car would just die for no reason, and you would have to
    restart it. For some strange reason, you would just accept this as normal.

1. People would get all excited about the new features in Microsoft cars, forgetting
   completely that they had been available in other brands for years.
