He can blend in with any crowd, becoming virtually invisible.

Occupation(s): Various
Nationality: Canadian
Remarks: The Haligonian has ties to Russia, Washington DC, Boston and Toronto. He has fled Blogland, and it is uncertain if he will return. Locating him is not an easy task, as he frequents different pubs and changes his patterns daily. The only common thread is the Guinness that he loves to drink so much.

He is the arsonist of the hearts of women everywhere.


The Haligonian is wanted for allegedly charming the pants off of everyone. He has written some of the best stories and painted such vivid imagery that he has made almost all other blogs pointless to read. He has been causing trouble in Karaoke Bars by trying to bring in his portable keyboard, and he has been seen hanging out with ex-Canadian Idols (Herein known as Canadian Idles).

Seen here in his youth, sowing the seeds of musical destruction he would harvest in his later years…

Considered Armed (With superior diction) and Extremely Dangerous (Awesome dance moves with all the Sweet Hookups)

If you have any information concerning this person, please contact Barking Space as soon as possible.

He employs hi-tech methods of eluding the law…>


Barking Space is offering a reward of up to 2 haiku poems for information leading directly to the capture of The Haligonian.

Happy Birthday, Buddy.

  2. Have a super birthday, Ian! ~Mattie

  3. While Ian may never return to blogland, we can take comfort in knowing that even he has been a victim of fashion. Somewhere, Bill Cosby is missing a sweater. Happy birthday buddy – I made a post for ya too 😉

  4. Jorge you crazy f&%ker! Thanks for putting out the APB… Remember I am doing some fieldwork for our next endeavour together… International Intrigue Consultants…. so it may not be such a good idea to resurface.

    And you are a clever bastard too. Nice work.

    And thanks to Denise, The Shellie, and Mattie for the b-day wishes. You guys rock the casbah!

  16. Hi Jorge!

    What a great Birthday tribute to the Haligonian. He has dissapeared as of late, but I think he’s still around! LOL! Perhaps if you send him an e-mail… He may respond, but he was very busy the last time I received an e-mail from him. I have taken a silent stand and stopped drinking Keith’s as a result of his blog-passing…

    Take care!
