I just got to Austin and I am clueless about the area-- I often find myself getting lost driving to or from Walmart
(not that I shop at Walmart!)
(Ok I MIGHT shop at Walmart once in awhile...
once in awhile being 3 times a week)
...but, to be honest, I'd rather consider my getting lost more a reflection on your poorly designed roadways that more closely resemble a blind child's crude drawing of what roadways on the Planet Venus would look like rather than a functioning city as opposed to a reflection on my intelligence. Nor should my hypothetical Walmart shopping trips. That's the beauty of being hypothetical!
I'm a film student, so that should tell you right away that I tend to see things in a slightly sarcastic way, though humorous way. I try not to take anything too seriously, unless it needs to be. Like Walmart.
I enjoy movies more than any typical person should. I am working on my own film projects and, to pay the bills, I work in television broadcasting and on weekends, for extra dough I work for the Alamo Drafthouse, which was, surprisingly, a major reason I decided to move to Austin. I enjoy my work immensely even though they sometimes clash with my moonlighting job of untrained racecar driver. *shrugs*
Again, I'm an overly obsessed film fanatic with a fix for every genre, (with some guilty pleasures thrown in: horror movies, Judd Apatow and Kevin Smith films), but I can get into anything remotely artsy. I enjoy reading--and though I'm usually reading non-fiction, when I do get the time I enjoy a good Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Clive Barker novel.
As an interesting side note, I have strangely been mistaken for John Travolta, Lou Diamond Phillips, and some guy everyone went to high school with named Joe who was apparently on the football team. Did I mention I don't look like any of these people. No really. I do not look like any of these people (well, except maybe Joe...that's still undetermined...).
I've recently taken up painting for the first time (acrylics) and I am falling in love with it...I'm also working on improving my photography...
I listen to all genres of music and, because I love lists, heres a few:
Beatles, Danzig, the Misfits, punk rock, the Ramones, industrial music, KMFDM, Skinny Puppy, Thrill Kill Kult, Lady Gaga (don't judge me lol), Alanis Morissette, Blondie, Tupac, Type O Negative, Johnny Cash. the Doors, the Cars...I also have a weird fascination and appreciation for Prince and EuroPop...
On a more serious note,
I am a creative spirit, intuitive, and cynical. I consider myself worldly (tho I've never actually left the country...), and find other cultures amazing (pretty much all of them). Although I have yet to see it, I want to travel and see the world. I am open to new experiences and opinions, try and keep an open mind regarding others' viewpoints but I ask the same.
I'm an avid fan of all movies, but especially comedies and horror films (kind of an opposite spectrum?): Halloween, The Crow, Chasing Amy, the Fifth Element, Friday the 13th, etc, John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Wes Craven, George Romero. Films in other genres that I enjoy include: ANYTHING by Judd Apatow or Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino, Donnie Darko, Run Lola Run, the Godfather films, and classics like Rebel Without a Cause, Citizen Kane, or the old Universal monster movies...I could literally list hundreds of films here... but I won't because you probably won't read them!
As far as books go, anything by Stephen King, Clive Barker, or Dean Koontz. I mostly find myself reading non-fiction lately, though I love to read just about anything interesting, regardless of the genre. Make a recommendation here...
Music...anything I can appreciate artistically. Go look at my list. No, seriously, do it!!
As far as food goes, I'm eccentric and suffer rather OCD-like food tastes. I'm really picky. Scary looking food scares me. I eat like a nine year old boy.
Also if you want to volunteer to be my personal Austin tour guide that would be awesome. There is no monetary compensation for this position except my stellar company.
You want to use me to see free movies at the Alamo Drafthouse.
Really, just message me if you wanna talk. I like that sorta thing.
...You should NOT message me if you are from the IRS,a telemarketer, a disgruntled used car salesman (or woman, we don't practice sexism in this profile), or an ex girlfriend (there's a reason I had you committed, now don't make me call Dr. Stevenson again, you remember what happened last time...)
