Cool story. I can't be the only one who thought at first that this was a heavier and older version of Tinstaafl. Or am I?

Nice video, too bad they did not even out the volume, half the time I could not hear the guy.

One thing I noticed is his left hand while telling his story, his life is the things he creates, you can tell that. What a great guy.
