..got sidetracked 2 seconds into filling this out. My name's Jay, I'm originally from Cincinnati, but living in Wicker right now, and i work for a web startup. Finishing up my bachelor's in marketing this semester. I originally started as a film major, then switched majors for practicality purposes. (My brother works for Nielsen, and I love me some nepotism.) I know, I know... I 'SOLD OUT, MAAAAN.'
I used to do standup, but I never was paid in anything other than beer in chicago. I worked at a club and made a living (the dream!) as a comic in Cincinnati for awhile, but it wasn't as glamorous as it sounded and it made me nuts, so I moved back here because I love this city. Creatively, now I just record songs that I occasionally get to perform. ('God Only Knows'-type chords with distortion.. usually trying to take the piss out of self-aggrandizement by mocking it in some way.)
Slightly neurotic/usually have a commentary going on in my head about whatever's happening around me. I used to make that commentary audible until one day a friend of mine said 'FUCK man, we get it, you're SOOoooOoo much smarter than everyone else. Shut up, already'
So I realized I was often being mis-interpreted as a cocky, mouthy, egomaniac.. and I've tempered that OCD urge a bit, since. Though at the root of me, I know that most of what I say is well-intentioned and often mis-interpreted. I have no superiority complex whatsoever and live by 1 rule: Be kind and treat everyone equal. (I sound like a corny bumper-sticker, but it's true.)
