Need a gift for a gifted musician?
For twelve years, Mike worked as a writer for some of PBS’s greatest children’s shows. However, his “inappropriate” approach to kids' TV soon got him into trouble. After writing “The Magic School Bus Makes LSD”, he was moved to the Wishbone writing staff, which requested his transfer after he pitched an episode idea based off of Lolita. He worked on Sesame Street until he tried writing in a guest appearance by Big Bird’s rooster cousin, Big Cock. Finally, PBS fired him outright after a particularly gruesome Arthur Hallowe'en special called “The Hunted,” which to this day is infamous for the scene in which Muffy is shot through the head by an inebriated Dick Cheney.
He is also a brony. His ponysona produces wonderfully cheesy Eurodance under the name Hooves Up!, found on Soundcloud, EQBeats/Everfree Radio, and My Little Remix.
