About Eric Brooks....

.... and why he does the crazy things he does...
Eric Brooks

I was born an anomaly. Somehow, I've always known I was never supposed to exist. But despite that, I was born August 23rd, 1965 in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn to a single mom who did her absolute best (with the help of aunts and cousins) to help me grow up and be normal.

Except for the fact that I spent most of the '70's drawing superheroes, wearing a halloween costume with a cape, and tried for years to get bitten by a radioactive spider and get some cool superpowers, I think I turned out ok.... Some people think I belong in a rubber room, but I think I belong right here on the web...

Back in the 80's I was a studio musician and club singer. I loved the concept of MIDI and digital recording. It made me a one-man show, and I didn't need anyone. That was a great feeling. Yadda, yadda yadda, started smoking, I did this, I did that, read more comic books...

So we can pretty much establish that I was destined to be some kind of entertainer, right?

In 1997, we got a computer and felt our Chocolate/catering service needed a website. After contacting several "web designers", we were hit with these ridiculously astronomical prices. So I said to myself, "Self"? "We're a graphic artist...How the hell hard can it be to possibly make a web page?"...so I learned.

 

I sucked...but other people sucked more, so I kept going at it.

 

The Tribe called Brooks left NYC for the Poconos in 1998, it was there that Gresser Realty gave me my first break. I've done a slew of other sites since then...

 

Aaaaaanyway, about the site...

 

This site has been nineteen years in the making, I wanted to make a fun site, with lots to do and lots of freebies for all my friends (that's YOU, knucklehead!). A site that refuses to take itself seriously, and doesn't fit any categories that a normal "personal site" would. If it has to be called anything, I would consider this a "RENEGADE" site. Basically it does whatever the hell I want it to. I'm not doing it for any awards (which is good, because I've been told I'm never gonna win any!), I just do it for sheer entertainment/ therapy/ shock value....

I have a strict "I support my friends" policy, and I answer every email I get. I wanna be your CyberPal!

Thanks for stopping by!
