I suck at writing these. It's not that I don't know what to write,
it's that I don't know what NOT to write. In short: I love music (I
sing in one band currently, trying to start more), I am broke, I am
a nerd (with a PhD in Horribleness!), I'm an atheist, and I am
polyamorous. That's the dating-important stuff :P
Oh, and sometimes I'm an asshole... but only to people who deserve
it (I hope).
What I’m doing with my life
I want to be part of a touring band. Fame and fortune would be a
nice bonus, but I'd be fine sleeping on floors and eating gas
station hot dogs if it meant being able to perform every night.
Assuming that doesn't work out (and it usually doesn't, but you
gotta live the dream!), would love to break into the producing side
Also, I have a recently inspired goal of playing Frank-N-Furter in
a stage production of Rocky Horror.
I’m really good at
Singing, arguing, soccer (or used to be... a bit rusty now), random
and utterly pointless knowledge, and hopefully my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am weird. I am OK with this. A top hat, spiked collar, dress
shirt, skinny jeans, sneakers, and trench coat is a perfectly
acceptable combination of clothing. Also, I have long hair and lip
piercings, and I believe this is perfectly acceptable even in a
white-collar business environment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hyperion by Dan Simmons (cannot say enough amazing things
about this book), American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Ender's Game by
Orson Scott Card (bad person, great book), Breakfast Of Champions
by Kurt Vonnegutt, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Guts by Chuck
Pahlaniuk, Pet Sematary by Stephen King, A Scanner Darkly by Philip
K. Dick, The Hunt For Red October by Tom Clancy, and The Lies Of
Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch are the books that stand out as worthy
of special recognition. Also a fan of a lot of fantasy series and
humor books, as long as they don't suck (Wheel of Time, Game of
Thrones, The Gentleman Bastards series, if Scott Lynch ever
finishes Republic of Thieves...). Currently going through
everything written by Stephen King. His short story "N." is the
creepiest thing I have ever read and makes me want to pick up some
Movies: Blade Runner: Director's Cut, Garden State, Eternal
Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Reservoir Dogs, Jurassic Park,
Dogma, Fight Club, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and the rest
changes too frequently to decide.
Shows: FIREFLY! Chuck, True Blood (shut up, it's good even if it is
a soap), The Walking Dead, various anime (Cowboy Bebop, Wolf's
Rain, and Trigun are the best I have seen, so I'm a bit mainstream,
I guess), Archer, and yes, even Glee (it's no worse than 80s
high-school-comedy movies, and often quite a bit better). Just
starting on Supernatural, Star Trek: The Original Series and Doctor
Who (but I'm on the 1963 black & white series, so it'll be a
LONG time before I'm caught up...)
Music: Everything but country? I love punk and want to be in a punk
band. The Gaslight Anthem, Rise Against, Sum 41, Story Of The Year,
anything in that range. As far as individual bands: Jimmy Eat
World, Anberlin, and Ludo are probably my favorites. Against Me! is
also a standout, and excited to see where the band is heading now
that the singer has made public she is transgender. Takes some
serious guts to do that. Deftones are kings of the hard-rock roost
at the moment.
Food: Thai/Indian/Japanese/Chinese... anything spicy, but
especially partial to curry. Love some sushi, too. Basically I'll
eat anything that's not bland old American :P
Quote! "Read the Bible. The world needs more atheists." - Penn
Jilette of Penn & Teller.
"I'm into slightly more normal kinks, like biting, choking, or
granny trannies." - Me, and I'm kidding about one of those.
(Choking is scary.)
The six things I could never do without
Music, sex, conversation, showers, books, and sarcasm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at a concert or at home listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There really isn't anything I *won't* admit. Seriously. Ask me
As a sample: I am straight, but I have made out with guys before.
It was co-ed spin the bottle and I got to make out with lesbians,
so I consider this a fair trade :P
You should message me if
You feel like it! Duh. I'm up for just shooting the shit whenever
and about pretty much whatever.
Or if you want sex. There's that, too. (Honesty is the best policy!
...unless we're talking insurance.)
