Things I like: power chords, literature and good writing in general, video games, history, adventures. Couldn't live without music and the ability to play it. If you have any interest in hearing any of my original stuff, my youtube channel is "thefrancfurter" although the quality is exactly what you'd expect from a shitty guitar and GarageBand. I've discovered that I'm the type to talk to strangers (which is part of the reason I'm here), because yeah, you can actually find some amazingly fascinating, even beautiful stories from people you've never met before, once you get over that weird hesitation to talk to people you don't know.
Things I despise: dishonesty, intolerance (especially homophobia and the shaming of people with depression/mental illness), and anything you could loosely describe as "bullshit." I value straightforwardness and openness more than just about anything. I leave few things unsaid and prefer that the people I'm close to do the same.
Thanks especially to my musical influences I try to be extremely aware of the world and its injustices, but though I occasionally call some fuckers out in the three-minute, three-chord format, I'm getting to the point where I want to actually do something that matters and helps make the world a better place. Aaaaand that sounded cliched as all hell. But, yeah. If you have a cause that's extremely important to you, tell me about it.
Born and raised in Somerville (MA), moved to Arlington when my parents split when I was 15, currently in Amherst. I went to an all-guys private high school in West Roxbury, which was *exactly* as painful as it sounds.
I always write way too much pointless shit in things like this (...as you may be able to tell), so beyond that, I'll only say that for better or worse, people rarely find me boring. I don't find others boring either, so message me for any reason at all.
Finally, If you have a good short joke I want hear it. I love them. I swear I'm not being sarcastic. I will tell you my favorite one if you ask.
(If I sound like someone you'd want to talk to or meet or whatever, you also might want to read some of the explanations to the questions I've answered. They give you a sense of some of my opinions on things. I especially tried to explain a lot of my answers to the sex and dating ones, since those can be touchy subjects and it's good to be clear about stuff.)
