Matt Morrison was born humbly to his own grandson, Matt Thurston Howell III, in Ohio, while it was still Rhode Island, sometime after the French Revolution. He refused to continue the family tradition of being a professional speller. Instead, at the age of 17 he left home and sought admittance to the Bar. After four years he received and spent most of the family fortune there on Pina Coladas.
Serving heroically in the Civil War, Morrison later admitted that it was in the army he first tasted human flesh. In 1875, he discovered the secret to immortality and eternal youth after an embarrassing mix-up in Western Union deliveries, facilitated by a farsighted rider who couldn't tell 6 from 5 and delivered Matt a package meant to go to a young Dick Clark. In 1892, he aided Thomas Edison in inventing a lesser-known invention: the pornograph. He was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury in 1917. Shortly after his decree that pants were a tool of the devil, he was wounded in an assassination attempt made by the son of bluejeans inventor, Levi Strauss.
Retiring from the papacy, he worked for a brief time as a cabaret dancer before joining the French Resistance in WWII. It was here that he died for the first time, falling victim to the Nazi's deadly "Funniest Joke in the World." Hearing the deadly German joke, his heart burst with laughter. It is said that he uttered, right before he died "If I have but one life to live, let me live it in the Marvel Universe so I might come back next month". No one knew what he meant then, but this gift of prophecy has inspired a group of three fanboys to declare him their true Messiah.
Little is known of what he has done in the 50 years since then, but it is said that he appears to all those who are in need of a good surreal experience.
As of right now (Fall 2000), I'm a junior at the University of Texas in Arlington. I'm working towards a B.A. of Theatre Arts: Performance. I later plan to get similar degrees in Theatre Arts: Design and possibly go to film school. I'd like to be an actor, but I'm equally interested in the creative work behind the scene.
I just recently left a position at the Theatre Victoria, where in addition to acting I served as the Chairman of Sound for the 1999-2000 season. In addition to training others in the use of the sound equipment, I was responsible for planning and plotting the sound effect and music programs for each show. You can read my theatre resume here.
I also enjoying role-playing in many forms, but mostly on-line Multi-User eXperiences (MUXes). I used to do D&D and WoD a bit, but Victoria (the city I lived in the last four year) didn't have any active RP groups. You can read more about my RP experience on my RP webpage.
I also write for a comics magazine called Fanzing
doing reviews, commentary and the occasional fiction. In fact, I just got my very own column, "The Mount".
