Brian (brimancandy)

Joined 8 years ago from Northern Michigan




I am a 52 year old man from Michigan. I am interested in being a writer. I have been interested in writing since I was in grade school, and have written many short stories since then. I also recently became a published writer of adult fiction at another website. And, I also have a few short videos on as Brimancandy.

I am somewhat of an artist. I do mostly pencil drawings as a hobby, and, I also dabble in cartoons. I am fairly creative in that area, and I might look into being a cartoonist in a field that interests me. I am also interested in creating those funny t-shirts, and getting into things like greeting cards and novelties.

My hobbies include: walking on the beach at Lake Michigan, and watching the sunset, I also love visiting amusement parks and riding roller coasters. I enjoy swimming, bike riding, and camping. I also like going to various events, concerts, fairs, and art festivals. I really enjoy being around lots of people who are interested in what I am interested in.... makes for great conversation.

My future hubs may include: travel, music reviews, movie reviews, and reviews on television shows. For example.

Lady Ga Gas latest CD. is excellent

Adam Lamberts Latest CD is excellent

KISS Monster CD is Great!

Recent Movies:


This is probably one of the most creative movies I have seen in a long time. It is visually stunning, and a great story. The more I watched it the more it hit home with what our government was doing around the world under the Bush administration, making up excuses and trying to use the american people to get sympathy as an excuse to attack a nation. Just as this operation duped scientists into believing that the powers above wanted to relocate the inhabitants of this world, when all they were really doing was looking for an entrance strategy to take what they wanted and leave. Sound familiar?

I have been a member of hubpages for a couple years now. I hope you are enjoying what I have written so far!

If you would like to visit some of my other sites, I would love it if you would stop by

You can now find me on Ebay. my username on Ebay is Briguydude69_8 if you doe a goodle search for my user name you will find my sales. Thanks!

News: As of February 2012, I have relocated to northern Michigan to live with my mom and brother. Hard times have left me with no money to continue living in the city. So, my writing will be put on hold due to lack of high speed internet access. (I have a dial up connection and it SUCKS!!)

But, that will not stop me from writing. I still have access to a computer, and printer. So, as soon as I can get access to better internet, I will add a few new hubs as soon as I can. That's if my luck holds out. and I come into some money, or find a rich husband!! LOL!! Until then, back to the old drawing board. I'm thinking tie-dye t-shirts!!

Thanks for reading!

P.S. I am also a member of Redage. People have been commenting on my photos, so I have decided to join this site and post them there. It is a pretty cool place, where you can also earn money.

I would be happy if you want to check it out.

2016 update.

I have not updated my profile in a long time. Some things have happened in my family since 2012. The most important news is that my mom and my brother Dennis both passed away. My brother died in April of 2012, and my mom died in April of 2014. To make matters worse, my sister Linda followed my mom in November of 2014.

I am currently living alone in my mom's house, with complicated issues that may end up leaving me homeless. So please visit as many of my pages as you can. I have my own health issues, and I am currently getting state disability.

If you can help, please visit my youtube page, by searching youtube for Brimancandy. My donation video is on the list. I have older videos there as well.

2017 Update. I lost my mom's house this year, and I am now couch surfing at friends houses until I can save up money to get another place to live. If anyone would like to help me out, I have a paypal account, if you want to donate to help me get back on my feet.

Thanks for looking!

    This is a photo of me at work, making gourmet pizza at a former employer. This is a job I had for over 8 years, and I learned how to make many different kinds of pizza. I was told by many of my customers that I made the best pizzas they ever had!
