A BRIEF OVERVIEW

Sir Tijn Po, a.k.a. Heroin Prime, was born in a small village in South America – so small as to not even have a name and is simply known to its residents as ‘The Village’.

As unbelievable as it may sound, Tijn was immaculately conceived by his father, who one day just woke up pregnant. Some fellow villagers attributed this to Black Magic, while others thought it was White (Tijn personally thinks it was Gray – the exact shade of which is in constant flux). In any event, none of the local midwives would come close to this phenomenon and Tijn had to be delivered by the local Shaman who performed an admirable C-section procedure.

The mystery surrounding Tijn’s birth obviously made him a bit of a celebrity/outcast in his village and at a very early age he left home to explore the world at large.

Tijn has supported himself by working as a beggar, clown, and gigolo (for women only). At the age of fifteen he had to undergo circumcision due to an uncomfortable illness probably caused by his risky profession.

At the age of 21 he re-named himself Tijn Po – after the author of Fairy Tales (see the Intro to the upcoming Devilhead Films release, Rubber Tricks). Tijn doesn’t like to disclose his original name so as to protect his father from any unnecessary attention.

At the age of 23 he met, and was knighted by, a Bohemian queen. Since then he proudly carries the title ‘Sir’.

Tijn possesses natural genius and has received no formal education aside from several years’ worth of apprenticing for Jan Švankmajer – as Assistant Director on the feature-film Otesánek, and as a Producer on the feature-film Lunacy.

In 31-32 (see dating policies below) Tijn wrote, produced and directed his feature-length debut, Coming Soon, which has been receiving international accolades and has already made history as the film that sparked a Bestiality-Rights Revolution.

Tijn has come to the realization that he isn’t a member of the human race, but rather part of the next step in evolution – one of Nietzsche’s forecasted ‘Overmen’. (Tijn utterly detests the label ‘Overman’, since, ‘Why name yourself after that which you’ve left behind? It would be as absurd as humans calling themselves ‘Overapes’!’, and he is currently searching for a better label. Please e-mail him if you have any suggestions.) Tijn retains good relations with most humans, particularly their females, with whom he still enjoys inter-species carnal relationships.

Among Tijn’s unusual talents are his ability to be invisible and perform auto-fellatio.

Tijn does not perform miracles for other people – even at a high price.

Tijn’s human hobbies include art, poetry, philosophy, orgies, billiards and basketball, and he is one of the founding members of the international art movement known as the Masturbationists (see the Liner Notes section in 1D for more details).

Tijn’s consistent loves include weed, cognac, jazz, Classical music, sheer black stockings, anal penetration by females, and post-douche 69s.

Tijn’s favorite human artists include – Vincent van Gogh, John Coltrane, Stevie Wonder, Dagmar (Daša) Valentová, Friedrich Nietzsche, William Blake, Ezra Pound, Michelangelo, Hieronymus Bosch, Caravaggio, Hawk Alfredson, J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Johannes Brahms, Fryderic Chopin, Omer Avital, Gregory Tardy, Jan Švankmajer, Stanley Kubrick, Frederico Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini and Sacha Baron Cohen.

After realizing that he had no more respect for Jesus than for any of the above-mentioned artists, Tijn decided that it was absurd to date his works according to the birth of Christ, so he started dating his works according to his own birthday, which, just for reference, was around 1,974 years after Christ’s.

Within the next several years, Tijn intends to retire and perhaps even end his corporeal existence at an invitation-only suicide party; the invitations are currently being designed.

Tijn believes in the death penalty for thieves – including the theft of intellectual property.
