About Maxwell Roahrigone of us since 3:34 AM on 02.17.2011

Max was born at the tender young age of zero in town noted for its horses and baseball bats. He enjoys giraffes, Robocop, oft forgotten movies of the 90's, vaudeville, British comedies, and bicycling. He realizes that this is slowly turning into an eHarmony listing, so just read his words, alright?
