My name is Eric. I'm a Dharmabum from the Midwest. (Any Kerouac
readers out there?) I love music with a passion that borders on
stupid. If music was a candy, I'd eat. If it was beverage, I'd
drink it. If it were a woman, well, I wouldn't be online writing
I love art. Even create it from time to time. Life drawing with
oils or charcoal. I play disc golf.Love reading books in coffee
shops and going to shows.
What I’m doing with my life
That depends on who you ask. My mother: Being perfect --My Brother:
Squandering my potential. --My Therapist: Making progress --My pet
Lizard: Paying too much for auto insurance. --My Rabi: Being a
Shmitza! --My hairdresser: OMG! Using way too much product and not
nearly enough conditioner. I mean, look at these split ends. Are
you brushing your hair with a Brillo pad? And why all these colors?
You have beautiful natural highlights and where are they hmm?
Bleached out and covered in Manic Panic thats where! And dont get
me started on....(so we wont) But if you ask me, I'd say coming
I’m really good at
Getting a smile out of people!
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. And my smile. It says I'm sweet, loving, and I just put a
whoopy cushion on your chair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This could take a while, so I'll just list a few...
Books: Stephan Kings "Dark Tower"Series, Janet Evanivich's
Stephanie Plum series, And anything by Neil Gaimen
Music: Bright Eyes, Nick Drake, Hooverphonic, Elliot Smith, The
Kooks, Misfits, Breathe Owl Breathe (if you don't know them, buy
all their albums right now..), Faith No More (especially the first
album, and alittle trivia: the fish lived! :) Mazzy Star, Mason
Jennings, Sublime, Modest Mouse, Morphine, G. Love, Tori Amos, I
could go on for quite some
time. If I like you, I'll make you a compilation. That's music nerd
Tv: Eureka, Doctor Who (the new series, sorry old Who buffs.. 60's
Doctor is just too hokey) Big Bang Theory, Chuck, The Adventures of
Pete and Pete, iCarly (Yes, both kid shows, but what can I say,
Nickelodeon makes some innovative, brilliant tv), Good Eats,
Movies: The Big Lebowski, Surfs up, A Midsummer Nights Dream, All
Wes Anderson movies, Dressed To Kill (ok, its more a standup than
movie, but Eddie Izzard is hilarious.)
Food: I love meat. So much I spell it Meeet! With no A and an extra
E! Why? Cuz thats carnivore love baby. ;)
**Since I wrote this I have been exposed to some seriously good
vegetarian cuisine, so in light of my new fondness for chlorophyll,
I will be dropping the extra E and restoring the A in Meat. Thank
The six things I could never do without
My friends. (I know! Cliche! but I have 3 best friends and they are
very kick ass people) My iPod/iPhone, Disc golf, Coffee, Torch
Lake, and my pug Roxy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about people alot. I try to figure out what makes people
people. I think understanding myself and others can lead to a
degree of inner peace. And in turn help me ease the discomfort of
this human condition in the people I encounter as well. I'm not
sure how far along that path I'll get, but what can ya do.
Sometimes the destinations not as important as the journey. Oh, and
On a typical Friday night I am
Working unfortunately. :)
But on my days off I catch up on tv shows online, paint in cafes,
chuck some discs, or just lay low and listen to tunes with my pug.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm afraid of Michael Bolton. What? Hes terrifying! Did a
frightened hampster wonder down his throat, then panic?! I dont
want to talk about it!
You should message me if
You think dorks are sexy. You like intellectual conversation over coffee. You are also afraid of Michael Bolton. (I know a great support group..we meet on Tuesdays) You want to have fun with a cool guy.
*Since its come up, I'm not actually Jewish. It just went with the joke. Its cool if you are though. And I havent colored my hair in awhile. Not sure if I can pull it off anymore, not as outwardly punk as I used to be. :)
**Also, I should mention that I'm currently in Arizona, planning the move to CO at the end of the year. So, we can talk for a bit, gonna have to take a rain check on the coffee.
