Good Now! I hope you are doing splentastically well!

This website, the Ephemeral Rift YouTube channel, and the Ephemeral Rift podcast are all run by me, Paul, an independent, DIY, open minded, freethinking, jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none.

The YouTube channel is my primary creative outlet where I publish a wide variety of videos ranging from the traditional to the avant-garde. The channel is primarily dedicated to helping people relax, sleep and experience ASMR often in an unorthodox manner incorporating various elements and themes such as comedy, absurdity, surrealism, and horror. 

The weekly podcast is a raw, 99% unfiltered, organic stream of consciousness and free thought where I speak my mind on a wide range of topics.

As for me personally, I’m married, have a son, and live in SouthEastern Pennsylvania where I was born and raised and enjoy a wide variety of interests just like anyone else.

My influences & inspiration are widespread and include the likes of David Lynch; sketch comedy TV shows such as Monty Python; comedians such as George Carlin and Bill Hicks, writers H. P. Lovecraft and Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy); philosophies (nihilism, existentialism, absurdism, anarchism, etc.); psychologist Carl Jung, and many other people, movies, shows, comic books, manga and video games, all of which are far too numerous to mention.

Oh yeah and one last thing: I’m a Catholic School Survivor, which probably explains everything. wink wink.
