I'm Wm. Edward Strom. I'm an anachronism. I am the last of the
great American Adventurers. I delve into the truly last unexplored,
explorable frontier. As it turns out, it's somewhere in my bedroom.
It's OK, and I'm not afraid, cos I can see in the dark, I've been
in here for quite some time.
And you know what else? Everything just about.
I'm still trying to learn German (So if you speak German and want
to spend a good deal of time with an obstinate learner, then Hi,
this match, she is made in the himmel.)
I despise cowards, and anyone who chooses to live in fear. Here is
a good example of how I live my life. One time this friend of mine
who was rather athletic decided to race me in a swimming
competition. (We had to save the lakefront eatery his family had
established, as greedy land developers were hoping to steal it
away.) Anyhow, we raced the the island in the lake, and I won
there, and he was upset, and gasping, he asked me how I had gotten
to the island before him So I told him "I didn't save anything for
the swim back."
That's totally something that sort-of happened, and is also a
reference/ homage to GATTACA. The film where Uma Thurman, and Ethan
Hawk began their forbidden love/ doomed affair.
I am Intrepid, precise, and ruthless..
What I’m doing with my life
Writin' novels. Kind of Failing. Kind of succeeding. Changing, yet
remaining absurdly the same. Finding the sensibility within
contradiction, and counter-indications. Yearning a hell of a lot.
I’m really good at
Anything I have to be. nurturing.
Adhering to instructions.
Fixing things others have given up for lost.
Finding things that have been lost.
The first things people usually notice about me
I stay crunchy in milk, and keep the soggies at bay. In all
honesty, probably how high my trousers are. I wear my trousers at
my natural waist. I am told that no one does this anymore.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Tender is the night. Movie: Return of the living dead. music:
weakerthans Food: Corned beef und Cabbage.
The six things I could never do without
Hmm. Not much, everything external is replaceable. So I suppose a
lungful of air, decent eats.
Above all other things: GI Joe: The Adventure Team. Because I have
a new adventure everyday with GI Joe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The universe, my place in it. How long before I finally take to get
On a typical Friday night I am
writing. reading. drawing. kitbashing. painting. staring at my
ceiling. wandering about the mean streets of town. planning
incredibly complicated meals, with many courses, and incredibly
complicated presentation. It is all about presentation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm only private about the things everyone already knows. I'd feel
remiss were I not to point out that acting ridiculous and saying
absurd things is always my first defense.
...and as we all know a good defense is a good offense.
I have a fanatical offensive spirit. it makes me superior in
You should message me if
You have noble intentions.
You have a tough assignment for me.
