Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Full-time knowledge-fiend, part-time musician, quarter-time
eremetic, I seek the low-key, the intense, the ridiculous, and the
sublime on equal terms ( a typical Aquarius I suppose).
I enjoy ephemera of all kinds, but I seem to have a knack for
interests that are now ridiculously commonplace; po-mo analysis,
"good" bad movies, musical colonialism, etc. To be honest, I'm kind
of tired of it, mostly because it renders the things that I've
cultivated and cared about for years somewhat moot: "I'm so far
ahead of you I'm behind you" as the one guy behind the other guy
I guess the bone-basic core of a personal "summary" for me is best
iterated by a wayward OKCupid Bodhisattva
whose profile caught my attention:
"I want to start a revolution. In the mean time...I drink."

Art ("The Arts") are a real big part of my life, and they have been
since I was a wee lad first bonking my fingers on a piano at age 4.
This being said, I am both picky and tolerant; Having been around
"creative types," I can see both the passion and the exclusivity
when it comes to appreciating music/film/etc. When you "create," it
can be difficult for the non-creative to "get" what you're doing,
but at the same time, the social factor of being "an artist" can go
to your head, and lends itself to being a fucking asshole. If it
comes down to the personal, then I can say that I always gravitated
towards things that were a little "different" (or usually A LOT
different) than the norm but I also am grounded in a base of memory
that lends itself to comfort and familiarity, especially with
music. I love TONS of art, and it's all based on MY reaction to it.
I don't need to wear a uniform or assign myself to a mode of "I
must look this way so I must like this kind of music" (Lookin' at
you all you "Rockabilly" folk; you're just as redundant as the
"Swing" fuckers back in the late '90's). If you like it, you like
it, right? I may ask why, but it's really just a matter of taste,
emotional response, and connection that you have (which I'd hope
would be strong)
Instead, I'll just post shit that interests me in the moment (or
personal long-time favorites), and hopefully you may or may not
enjoy it: movies, music, random BS, etc.
