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!)
<_br /> >_>
(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 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* Go figure.
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, 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.
