Time to write up a convincing commercial for myself, and on my first cup of coffee! Type in a semi-coherent fugue is probably more like it. You know, a fresh unpolished sample of me: before my shower, before breakfast, not yet wanting to put on the music. Not as I'd meet you some evening, certainly, but perhaps as I might be on a morning afterwards.
That's clever and funny, because I say so. Who am I? A freak, first off. I'm an unrepentant alternative counterculture type, hopefully not stereotype. I'm made from a spectrum of wilder influences, a progression from retro beatnik, through hippie, heavy metal, industrial and goth, to post-everything cyberpunk. I was never part of conservative society and have no desire to be.
I did not quit being a hippie when it became unfashionable, give up on punk after it gave in to the shoe-gazers, or abandon goth after it officially became passe. The cultures I love were not phases to outgrow. I violently reject the idea that conservative=normal.
I was tempted to write a profile with a formula like: "Used, like new 1973 model. well-groomed, long-haired exterior....Take me for a test drive....". While not original, its funny to consider the comic possibilities of describing myself or someone else in that way. As a tool of self-promotion, not so perfect.
I'm interested in nanotechnology, space colonization, and the restoration of Earth's ecosystem. I'm opposed to rule by theocrats and the mega-corporations.
I think I'll boast a bit and say that I'm no athlete, but I'm in really good health for 40+. I can easily go biking for 40 miles, party all night, then ride ten miles back home afterwards like I did on 3/1/13, when I got to go see Velvet Acid Christ at the Highline Bar after running some errands on the East side earlier in the day. They have ginger bourbon there! Perhaps we'll go there sometime, my hypothetical mistress.
While I can hold my liquor well, I'm only an infrequent drinker who avoids reaching his limit. I'm a stoner and a tripper who believes in the psychedelic experience-but I never use coke, meth, or junk-ever. Never have, never will. Life is already hard enough, isn't it?
