staying busy. I'm a software engineer, run a small tape label, do a weekly radio show on an internet/soon to be FM station, and play shows occasionally. I bought a house recently so I've been dealing with everything that comes with that as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I travel a lot for work these days, so that means mostly trying to
hold my life together from a distance. When I am in town I work a 9
to 5, play in a band or two, play some video games, hang out with
my dogs, hike, go to bars with friends, read, host an internet
radio show and occasionally make things. I went through graduate
school so that I could afford to enjoy my passions without having
to depend on them for sustenance, and that's what I'm working
I have a degree in glassmaking but work as a software
Working on getting my life together.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books and movies I tend to like things that qualify as Sci-Fi more than anything else, but I've read and watched my share of "classics." There was a while when all I read was Vonnegut, then Hemingway, some Steinbeck, then working through the list of Pulitzer winners just because I figured they were probably worth reading. Recently I've been reading the Song of Ice and Fire series, How to Live Safely In a Science Fictional Universe, Cuckoo's Calling, Peoples History of the US, random music programming books.
I've been listening to Oneohtrix Point Never, Mount Kimbie, Disclosure, Fugazi, Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, Holly Herndon, Chromatics, Deerhunter, The Unicorns, Joanna Newsom, The Knife, James Blake, LCD Soundsystem, Aphex Twin, Battles, Severed Heads, Q and Not U, Slint, St.Vincent, YATCH, Wild Nothing, The XX, FKA Twigs, Dirty Projectors, Boards of Canada, and all that kind of stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
