Being the only 6 ft tall "goth" kid with (3ft!) long hair, I stood out a bit... not such a positive thing as one would like to think as life is not like the movies. (why Oh why couldn't it been like "Pump Up the Volume" or "Heathers"?)
However I found the glory of computers and the internet!!!...
Sigh, ok, that was a LIE...
I really just got fed up with working factory's and went to college chasing a degree in Network Administration to only wind back up at the factory's I tried to leave. :P
As a result I can be a little rough around the edges.
I can polish up some and get back to the person I know I am, just hard when one is as eclectic as I and you are surrounded by less than ...umm... refined? coworkers.
So somewhere between gruff humor of mechanics, truck drivers and construction workers (common family occupations that I was raised amongst) and some of the intellectual urges of a true tech geek who reads pretty heavy literature, with a fondness for intellectual pretentious snobbery (satire at its finest), lies me.
So I cant put myself in a nice little box that can make sense for others. You will have to do that big person thing and decide for your self and use your critical thinking.
*You got that right, I am not going to spoon feed you what to think of me. Even if you do not like what you see here, you decided on your own. <--- and that right there is why you should message me, it is what I am looking for.
However I can say I have a kind heart to kids and animals.... adult humans however... person by person basis.
I crave novelty, the strange, and strange people, out and out freaks, and personal views that do NOT agree with mine. One could say I like to debate respectfully in both directions on most any topic and I look forward to discussing the points.
I will message you like I have already have met to you as I do not believe in facades for myself. They seem to slow down real communication as words tend to bounce of the veneer of who we project are selves to be.
Makes no sense right?... . but then again, does it have too?
If so, to whom?
Thrilled with the area and really never intend to leave.
Much of it is just so bizarre and random to me at times.
Might be part of why I love it here...
From parks to Uni-Pipers, dear god I am still in love with Portland after almost 5 years.
It is nothing alike to where I am from. THANK (who ever you would like) FOR THAT..
I plan to be going back to College (sigh, AGAIN) for a Electrical Engineering.
This is on the back burner for now. I am sure many of you can understand how messy life can be at times. Gotta still pay the bills and such.
If not the above, I am usually sucking down caffeine in about any form I can find it in at a coffee shop with my Nook in hand.
Trying to quit smoking. Just got an E-cig and have become a pretty avid fan of them... it seems to be just the thing!
** update... I can say I have been smoke free for almost 1 month now... cant say I have really quit as I still get the urge but as long I am not around other smokers I am good!)
Computers and Servers
(build, fix, repair, maintain, configure, and network them, yes I will fix yours if you ask nice).
Working on cars
Yes, I will take a look at yours, can even fix it with in reason.
Repair is my mutant ability.
Why, oh why, could it have been something cool like breathing life into action figures? :(
Being open minded, I am not one to judge. Good people are good people no matter what the wrapping looks like or what package they come in.
Drawing & sketching. Not really "good" at is as I love it.
Better at art history than actually making things. Who knows, maybe I just have not found my medium.
Really bad sense of humor. As in like dark, laced with a ton of random pop culture and horrible puns, tidbits of classical literature, Poems, and science jokes sprinkled on top to make it all classy, smart and shit.
Empathy & understanding.... bitter as I may come off, I have a undeniable belief that we need more of this.
Trivial knowledge sponge and dispensary. I am the guy you want on a trivia night.
You could say my favorite hobby is trying to learning everything.
my most verbose, some say "baroque" vocabulary... I know not what of my manor of speech would be portrayed with such substantial indignity!
^^^^^^^^ I over think stuff
My suit fetish
That I have no tattoos or piercings. I have nothing against it and I like them, I am just in debate on what to get still.
Usually these are the things that people tell me about, it's not like I go asking.
I have, as of late got back to reading Book 4 by Alister Crowley...interesting read... bizarre and yet in many ways it still holds a rational sense about it... its like Lovecraft but real life. Most anything by Neil Gainman or Terry Prachet (Good Omens, great read!). As like with many, A Song of Ice and Fire. I have put off watching the last two seasons of Game of Thrones just so I could enjoy the books.
Hardcore Zen by Brad Warner.
Need more books. :P
This list would be HUGE if I was to list my favorites. So this is a VERY truncated list of movies and types of film I dig.
I watch a TON of documentary's on any topic. Again, I love to just learn.
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Requiem for a Dream
ANY THING BY David Lynch
The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I watch it once a year, usually around my birthday.
Scott Pilgrim Vs the World.
As Good as it gets.
I will watch almost anything once. So if there is something you want to show me, then by all means do!
Andre Segovia, God Lived Underwater, Mushroomhead, NoFX, Anthrax, Funker Vogt, The Cure, Dresden Dolls, Orgy, Gravity Kills, God Lives Underwater, Hozier, Gwar, David Bowie, Queen, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Cake, Crowbar, Clutch, Flogging Molly, Lords of Acid, The Smiths, The Offspring, Prodigy, MC Larz, Fear Factory, A Perfect Circle, The Misfits, Primus, Stained, Cold, Stone Sour, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Cream, The Byrds, Rev. Horton Heat, Stolen Babies, Diablo Swing Orchestra, VnV Nation, AFI, Moby, Combichrist, Front 242, Kraftwerk, Prong, Lacuna Coil, Chuck Berry, The Toasters, Steve Vai, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Talking Heads. (are you really still reading this?)
Most of what I watch is on NetFlix. Even then its like one or two nights out of a week when nothing is going on.
X-Files, Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, Dr. Who, Destination Truth, Band of Brothers (when its on..I know its a mini series), Invader Zim, BSG, Firefly, Farscape, Eureka!, Babylon 5, UK's Top Gear, Fringe, Twin Peaks (1st season only)... It all depends on stuff.
I do like to cook!... Well mostly baking...
Like any good curious mind I am willing to try anything!
Down side is that I can not be a Vegan, HOWEVER I do have a conscience and do meatless days during the week.
I acknowledge what hell the meat industry has become and I make choices based on that.
Vegan cooking is welcome and (again) I am all for learning how to make any of it. I just do not have a background that has exposed me to much of it.
Palio diet has some appeal to me also.
1. My little Poney
2. My Crockpot
3. my Ex girlfriends
4. my awesome suits I find at Goodwill.
5. Trimet at midnight.
If you think I am strange, take the 57 bus at 12am just once. You will see that I am a fine, well adjusted human by all rates of comparison. (Shudders, looks for number for therapist)
6. my coffee... This one IS true... I love my coffee.
(is this really a problem???)
Where I can buy a cheap left handed guitar
How well I would fair on Jeopardy! given the stupid amount of trivial knowledge I have.
What the velocity of an unladen Swallow actually is.
If one was to trip on acid, and if colors have a flavor then what in the hell plaid or argyle would taste like?
I know, boring right?....
I am aware of it and I am actively working on it.
I have a mirror in my room that I write down goals and aspirations on as a daily reminder.
you want brownies or cheesecake, I just might make it for you ;)
I do not care what your views are, just as long as you are informed about them and can willingly discuss them with out judgement. Challenge me as I will challenge you.
you like horrible jokes, dirty humor, bad puns and endless sarcasm.
you ever answered the question "what state do you live in?" with "confusion" or "insanity".
you actually LIKE Mike Patton.
*And here is the long shot* If you happen to be a liberal female that is pro gun and likes role playing games.... No you perv, I mean like Dungeons and Dragons....
