T. Mike Childs is a North Carolina native, a member of sketch comedy group the Van Gogh-Goghs, and creator of the website furnitureporn. T. Mike Childs is a true Renaissance geek, equally at home discussing the finer points of Spinal Tap with European royalty as he is coding HTML for his sketch comedy group's website. He began writing and performing comedy while attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then held a succession of tedious jobs that afforded him the time to compile Rocklopedia Fakebandica and its sister website, fakebands. So, despite what you're thinking, he didn't have anything better to do than write this book.
