Chicago native via Michigan via Bloomington, IN via Nashville, TN.
To be completely honest I re-activated my profile because I am spending too much of my free time drinking on my porch and shaking my head over the state of the neighborhood. It was either this or a pottery class.
I'm not the most positive of people but I'm funny and have a good relationship with my parents.
TL/DR: I am a tiny ship adrift upon a tremendous sea.
What I’m doing with my life
Server, music industry grunt.
I'm trying to write my life's story, the working title of which is "Very Slippery and Kind of Gross."
I’m really good at
not being noticed.
Also, cats respect me because I don't put up with their bullshit.
The first things people usually notice about me
If in the event I am noticed: my lazy eye.
I'm joking. You can't usually tell, because my grill is too distracting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tom Waits, Man Man, Magnolia Electric Co./Songs:Ohia, The Clash, The Pixies, The Replacements, The Talking Heads, Pavement, Archers of Loaf, Patti Smith, Fugazi, The Black Lips, The War On Drugs, Future Islands, Ryan Adams, Beck, Neko Case, Jenny Lewis, Kishi Bashi, Old 97's, etc. etc. etc. ad infintium ad nauseum.
I wrote for a music blog for quite a while, so I have strange allegiances to some obscure bands that I like to trot out when I need to demonstrate my superior musical tastes.
Books: Kurt Vonnegut
Movies: Top 5: Amelie, Wet Hot American Summer, Station Agent, The Third Man, Grosse Point Blank
Food: Almost anything, though at this point I'd be happy to never set foot in a Waffle House again.
The six things I could never do without
coffee, bicycles, tweezers (my eyebrows are out of control), GPS,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what literary character I most identify with. Time and time again I return to Boxer the horse from Animal Farm.
On a typical Friday night I am
working, with friends, or falling asleep at 9pm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I HATE BEING WRONG SO SO SO VERY MUCH. This is a character flaw, but I think I do a decent job covering up JUST HOW MUCH IT BOTHERS ME WHEN I AM WRONG GODDAMN IT.
Also, I offer children cigarettes when their parents are out of earshot.
You should message me if
You have a sense of humor; you do not have a beard.
