Interests and Personality

BiographyBorn 1951 Edmonton Alberta Canada. Still kicking.
InterestsInterests? That's a bit cool for me. Obsessions would be closer to the truth. And then there are activities, and that's a different matter. First interests then: art in its every medium, perception (naturally), the mind and its constitution, history, religion, myth, politics, constitutions and constitutional law, media, the web, landscaping, design, technology, science. Activities: I love to sing. I sing in a community choir. I've begun to sing solo in public. I taught myself how to arrange and write music. I sang my own blues piece recently. Though I had a terrible cold, it went really well! It's great being on stage! I love it.
MusicJazz, Jazz, Jazz, Jazz, Jazz, Bel Canto opera, smaller doses of rock, blues, country, so-called "world" music (Is there music from other planets?). As long as it's good.
FilmsPersona; And God Created Woman; Marty; Nights of Cabiria; Black Narcissus; Ryan's Daughter; Dodeskaden; La Dolce Vita; WUSA; Careful!; The Remains of the Day; The Wild Bunch; Amarcord; La Strada; Hud; Heat And Dust; The Nightcomers; The Hustler; Being John Malkovich; Welcome to the Dollhouse; The Seven Faces of Doctor Lau; Frenzy; Alfie; The Italian Job (original); Young Frankenstein; The Producers; The Apartment; The Day-Trippers; Fat City; Goodfellas; Patton; Picnic; Sunset Boulevard; Aguirre, the Wrath of God; Ushpizin; Patton; Die Hard 1 &2; Rush Hour 2, and dozens more....
TelevisionOff, though one day I did hear Richard Feynman say, in a TV interview, that unless he'd come up with 4 equally good solutions to any problem, he considered that he hadn't really thought about it. I also saw good interviews with Henry Miller, Robert Desrosiers and Sandra Day O'Connor.
BooksThe Brothers Karamazov, The Rosy Crucifixion, Oblomov, The Canterbury Tales, The Bible, The Ring and the Book, The Aeneid, The Illiad, The Trial, The Odyssey, The Anonymity Suite, Ashbourne, Tristam Shandy, Gulliver's Travels, 1984, Tales of Love and Darkness, Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, The Golden Bough, The Cantos of Ezra Pound, TS Eliot's Collected Poems, The Poems of Catullus, ee cummings, Blake, The Idiot, Crime and Punishment, The Devils, Notes From Under (the) Ground, Catch 22, Cocksure, Finnegan's Wake (which is a lifetime reading task not yet done but enjoyable nevertheless)....
HeroesOther than mythic or semi-mythic figures like Perseus, Moses or David, I would say I have no heroes though I admire many people: Natalia Goncharova and David Smith for working under such difficult circumstances. Cezanne, Mondrian, Pollock, Newman, Dostaoievski, Henry Miller, Monet and a thousand other artists, musicians and writers, architects, sculptors, soldiers, statesmen for their tenacity, for their honesty, for the risks taken, for the sacrifices made. I love them because they are human. Heroes, it seems, stand above and beyond love. Perhaps that's what makes them mythic.

Hello, Dan, I'm excited to tell you about something new. John Smeets and I have initiated a new series of collaborative work featuring his great nudes and my digital augmentations. The first one is now posted in my 'John Smeets and Robbie' gallery called "Smeets/Burger Collaboration #1." It's at the bottom of the thumbnails in the middle. Please let me know what you think. I just love working with other artists and working with John is a dream coming true.Best regards, Robbie.


Hello my fellow Canadian. I was an Edmontonian once. We have a lot of interests in common and I'm a musician too. Sing on. Sing loud and clear and never hold back your passion. It will ring out. I'm enjoying viewing your site and will back to check it all out eventually.


Cool site like your work-greetings Anita !!!


I have enjoyed your palette in your pastel drawings and I really loved reading your philosophy on life , obsessions , why not ,why not throw yourself 100% into all we feel, everything else is just mediocre. Thankyou for that k
