Okay. Now that I have you completely hooked, let me say that you have the most beautiful eyes...I'm guessing.
Okay. Good. My spell of seduction is almost complete. In fact, the rest of this profile is practically inconsequential.
Okay. Wait. It seems I can't take these self summaries so seriously. What will work when what we want is wasted with words? This debacle doth deter my dearest of desires.
I'm sorry. That went too far. I hope this won't be an issue.
My name's Josh. I have many interests: disc golf, hiking, art, film, improv, retro video games, history and WHY things are put together the way they are, and almost anything having to do with science fiction or fantasy. I have an inquisitive nature, and enjoy looking at life from many angles. However, of all the things I do, there are two activities that I love the most: martial arts and music.
Back in high school, I started taking classes in Kung Fu and instantly fell in love with the style. It guided me through difficult times, and gave me a glimpse of my own potential. I had never really applied myself up until that point, so this was like opening the floodgates of my untapped energy. I dove head first into the art, and continue to train in kung fu to this day...just laying that on the table, haha. I may risk sounding like a motivational speaker, but starting Kung Fu was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Music is my other passion, and I don't use that word lightly. Music truly is the voice of the soul. It gives us a way to connect with others by conveying emotions through sound, and can tell us a lot about who we are. I play the drums, mandolin, and piano in my band Fade Up Fade Out Bye Bye. I'll admit, we're kind of fucked up sounding, haha. If I had to describe our sound I would say it's similar to Frank Zappa. We're like a jazz/funk/rock band that doesn't mind throwing some hip hop/blues/french café in there. It's all for the love of making music, though.
