I play in a wedding band, and when I'm not playing weddings I'm bartending them, usually at the zoo! I think being around so much happiness is starting to melt my cold cold heart. It's certainly changed the way I feel about Katy Perry.
Super spontaneous. Slightly vampiric. Can't believe that's actually a word. I'm always busy but I'll drop what I'm doing for a friend (or stranger) any time. I firmly believe it's better to look back and regret what you did than what you didn't do.
I prefer vehicles with two wheels over those with four. I believe there should be a stereo in every room of your house.. and Christmas lights. Good lighting is very important, as is good whiskey, or cheap whiskey. Fortunately the two aren't always mutually exclusive.
What I’m doing with my life
Traveling and playing music mostly. When I'm home I produce musicals to raise money for gay rights organizations. Hedwig, Rocky Horror, etc.. I make moonshine, build things, and have a lot of parties. oh and I play in a KISS tribute band. Seriously. I'll post a photo.
I’m really good at
Anything I put my mind to really (except the goddamn violin!),
Scrabble, playing drums, kissing, baking, mixing drinks, fixing
things, and being bluntly honest to the point of offending people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair or my shoes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
George Orwell, Henry Miller, Roald Dahl, Kurt Vonnegut, E.E. Cummings, Tom Robbins, Charles Bukowski.
Down By Law, Harold and Maude, and True Romance are my favorite movies along with anything Jim Jarmusch, David Lynch, The Coen Bros, and Wim Wenders have done. I think Louie is the best show ever made and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the funniest thing I've ever seen.. along with Strangers with Candy, Black Books, and Arrested Development. Stephen Colbert is my favorite person alive.
Music: Tom Waits, Nick Cave, The Dirty Three, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Cramps, The Toadies, Aerosmith, Morphine, Two Gallants, and a huge collection of dusty old blues and soul records.
The six things I could never do without
My friends, my bands, record player, typewriter, piano, bicycle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Projects I can start that will improve the world somehow, whether
being something big that can help many, or something small that
will bring happiness to just one person. How to be a better person
and use my time as efficiently as possible. How our brains work,
evolution, and spacetime.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a show somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I stole an ice cream truck and gave away free ice cream to children
down the coast then ditched it in Tijuana and swam across the
Pacific to Hawaii where I'm currently writing this from.
You should message me if
You like to play music, dress up and go out to shows/happy hours/plays, ride bikes, play Scrabble or chess, or just stay in and drink good bourbon and listen to records or watch old movies.
I should probably add that if you use the letter u in place of the word "you", it probably won't work out.
