About Me!

My name's Peter Chiykowski and I write geeky songs and comics as Rock, Paper, Cynic! Imagine your strangest hypotheticals and geekiest ponderings could come to life at any moment--that's the kind of world I try to make through my music. I think it's kind of like what would happen if you locked Jonathan Coulton, Barenaked Ladies and The Weakerthans in a van and GUYS I SAID I'D LET YOU OUT AS SOON AS YOU'RE DONE WRITING THE BRIDGE.

What happens when robots fall in love, philosophers go on zombie-slaying sprees and gaming groups fall to pieces? I don't have the answers, but my songs have a lot of fun with the questions!
