A wiser person than me once said, "Before you judge a man,
walk a mile in his shoes... that way, when you do judge him...
you're a mile away and you've got his fuckin' shoes!"
I love to laugh, hopefully you do too. If you don't, you should probably kick rocks.
I'm scatterbrained, I write very informal and random. This may come across as the ramblings of a mad man.
I also sprinkle a few colorful words in my everyday vocabulary (made evident above), so if that offends you, you've been warned. Here goes nothin'...
I know a little something about the great outdoors. I grew up in a small town in Eastern North Carolina, which is also rural Tobacco country. I enjoyed clear nights where you could step outside and see all the stars, constellations, and catch the occasional meteor shower. In the Spring and Summer you can smell honeysuckle everywhere...
I love and appreciate the smaller things in life.
I love hanging out on the porch. I love rocking and swinging chairs.
I love watching the sun rise and set. I especially love watching bonfires.
I love taking long walks, gives me great clarity.
I love the sights and sounds that illuminate and emanate from stormy nights. It's amazing how something so chaotic can be so peaceful.
I love embracing an occasional cool breeze.
I love sipping an ice-cold glass of sweet tea.
I love the fact that I still possess all of my senses.
If I had written this ten years ago, I'd have written a paragraph or more about what I despised in life.
I love perspective.
I'm former Army, honorably discharged after eight years of service. I served in both Afghanistan and Iraq, amongst other places. I'm very thankful to still be here. I've witnessed a lot of beautiful, tragic, and extraordinary things, t-shirts and photos included.
I've done a lot of extensive traveling, to say the least. I've been to more countries than I can think of, half of which I can't even fathom spelling. I kinda miss the travel and hustle.
I really miss the people and camaraderie... I had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful and fascinating people from all walks of life. It wasn't always peaches-n-cream, but the people I was surrounded with helped ease a lot of the burden.
Memories can often be bittersweet, but I still cherish them.
Currently, I'm an electrician. I mainly do commercial, residential, and light industrial. I find it kinda boring to talk about, but it's a job I appreciate knowing and having. If you need any free advice, I don't mind helping or steering you in the right direction.
I really dig art... I draw daily, mostly animals and the faces of those that have imprinted deep impressions. I find it extremely therapeutic. I mainly use Faber Castell and Ticonderoga(nothing too grand), pencils and any variety of pen. I have tons of sketchbooks and various other art supplies stacked. This stems from the 80's/90's explosion of cartoons, older Disney and Warner Bros. cartoons included, anime, manga, PBS(Bob Ross+epic 'fro, Reading Rainbow(very inspirational show growing up))... movie genres: sci-fi, fantasy, horror... and a very meaty obsession for comic books and the various writers and pencilers who inspired early on. I must also add that when you're from the country, you have to possess a wild, crazy, and vivid imagination if you don't wanna succumb to boredom.
For every place I've ever been, I've found a particular song or artist I enjoyed. I can place that song with a moment in time that I shared with someone else.
It's amazing to sit there and grasp just how powerful music really is. We all share at least one love, music.
Can you imagine completely losing your ability to hear such wonderful sounds?

Ever have a song trapped in your thoughts? You can't get it out, can you? It's usually the melody that hooks me right in.
This is currently on daily loop in my head.
Moments of nostalgia seem to always linger about. I'm a bit of a memory horder. My mind is cluttered with mostly useless information that comes in handy on trivia night.
Don't ask me where the hell I left my keys though... takes more than an act of congress to find them sometimes.
As far as religion is concerned, I feel whatever brings you peace through triumph, tragedy, and time is what is best for you.
Without question, I'd say my favorite food is pizza. I also love the simplicity of peanut butter and jelly/jam (grape, strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, rasberry, elderberry, frankenberry, any -berry) lightly spread on flat bread, preferably served with a big glass of milk to wash it down with. It always hits the spot.
While we're still on food... I love anything cheese, anything cake, and any variety of cheesecake.
I wouldn't really call myself a current gamer, but I know the culture well. I grew up having an Atari 2600, I wish I still had one. I had the Super NES and others too, but have strayed from purchasing the newer systems. Nowadays, I just play when with friends or cheer them on while they're battling hordes of the unsightly and the likes of.
I truly miss the old Galaga, Mario Kart, Frogger, Mortal Kombat, and Donkey Kong days... even the days where my sister would relentlessly stomp my ass with Chun-Li and the Spinning Bird Kick.
Life before trophies, achievements, red rings of death, ignorant trolls with microphones, and blatant spamming!
Remember playing Oregon Trail?!? Dysentery, anyone?
If you choose to continue reading, you'll find that I use an insane amount of commas and ellipses...
In honor of Kurt Vonnegut, my profile is written free of semi-colons.

A wiser person than me once said, "Before you judge a man,
walk a mile in his shoes... that way, when you do judge him...
you're a mile away and you've got his fuckin' shoes!"
My real name is Will Robinson. I've heard Lost In Space references my whole life. A lot of good-natured Simon & Garfunkel lyrics have also been sung to me.
I'm very close with my small family. I was born on my mother's birthday. Crazy, no? I respect her, my father, and my sister(only sibling) a great deal for helping raise me into the man I am today.
My friends are also very important to me. Through the good and bad times, we've always been there for each other.
I'd say loyalty is pretty high on my totem pole. I'm forever indebted to those who are still in my life.
I've heard it said that the eyes are the keys to the soul. I get commented on mine quite often. They're hazel. They change colors, depending on what color(s) I'm wearing.
My vision is another story, I'm blind as a bat. I have astigmatism in both eyes and I'm near-sighted. I've worn contacts or glasses for over twenty years. Back in the day, I wore the birth control variety... like Squints from The Sandlot.
I wear my heart on my sleeve and my character on my collar.
I'm kinda quiet at first. I'm soft spoken with a bit of an accent. When I do talk, I tend to use my hands a lot. I can illustrate most any scenario with them. I can also make some pretty bitchin' shadow puppets.
I'm a bit goofy.
My friends describe me as unclassifiable, I'm not a hipster, thug, redneck, none of the above. I really don't care for labels either. I'm just a warm and honest person trying to make it in this often cold and shallow world. I don't let anybody change me, I've come to realize that I'm perfectly fine just the way I am.
Since everybody loves plastering their Myers Briggs test results, I'm an Introvert when I want to be and an Extrovert when I have to be.
My face is never clean-shaven. I've always got thick stubble or a beard.
I keep my hair real short and close-cropped. It's been that way for a minute now.
I have big(wide) feet. I wear a size 14 and I'm generally wearing boots. Kids used to call them boats. They're not Shaq-size, but they're not Muggsy Bogues-size either.
I'm a natural born runner, I also tend to walk really fast... I can't help it... kinda like Forrest Gump , haulin' ass everywhere I go...
I'm very genuine, what you see is what you get. I enjoy helping others and showing kindness and respect to ALL. I was raised to treat others the way that I want to be treated, regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, nationality, wealth, differing opinions, etc.
The late Rodney King put it best, "Can't we all just get along?!?"
Have you ever come across /r/NoSleep before??? Not all of the stories are that great, but I discovered Dathan Auerbach/1000Vultures while exploring one day.. Extremely talented writer.

I don't watch TV every day, I usually marathon run it on the PC. My PC really is my TV. I can't just watch one episode, I'll stockpile them and just run right through several episodes in one sitting. I think most folks do this nowadays. I have a love/hate relationship with cliffhangers.
Past favorites TV: Sons Of Anarchy, The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, Firefly, Lost, BSG, Quantum Leap(Oh Boy...), Star Trek: The Next Generation, Breaking Bad, Cowboy Bebop, Xena: Warrior Princess, Deadwood, Black Lagoon, Samurai Champloo, The Wire, House, Buffy, Oz, Sanford And Son, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 24, The Shield, In Living Color, Dr. Who (I grew up on PBS. On Saturdays they would play Dr. Who all day, Tom Baker was larger than life. Bob Ross(afro included) and LeVar Burton were close behind), Twin Peaks, Batman: The Animated Series, Spawn, MTV's Liquid Television, Aeon Flux, Berserk, The Maxx, The Head, Sealab 2021, Monty Python, Red Dwarf, any old George Carlin stand-up, yada yada yada....
1. Family/friends. If you're a friend of mine, you're FAMILY.
2. Art/Art Supplies, 'nuff said.
3. Other forms of entertainment: Music, movies, literature, various hobbies, internet, yada yada yada... this covers a lot.
4. My memories! Where would I be without them? Lost!!!
5. Good advice... I'm not Superman, shared wisdom has saved my ass on more than one occasion. It keeps you humble, because none of us know everything.
"Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance."
6. Transportation! Gotta get from A to B!
7. A sense of humor. Everybody deserves a good laugh now and again. We all have bad days, and you need it after rolling with all those punches... I wish George Carlin was still alive.
~ William Shakespeare
I have moments where I wish I could ride off and disappear into the sunset. I often romanticize the notion.
I can't think of a better video to feature this song...
Ditto for this video...
This video > The prequels
Where did Jim Sullivan go? Seriously... His story is documented on Coast to Coast and on NPR, you should look it up. It's fascinating. This song is one the best songs to never make it big. It's also one of my favorites... It never gets old.
When I clean a load of clothes, I always find myself missing a sock or two. I double-check the washing machine and dryer, then scratch my head in bewilderment when I can't find them. I think there's some hidden dimension where everybody's lost socks are laying around. I believe it's best hidden, you know it stinks.
I have never been to Japan, but I one day plan to go. I wanna get lost in Tokyo and fully absorb it's insanity. I also would love to visit Aokigahara, otherwise known as the Sea of Trees and Suicide Forest. Kinda weird place to venture, but after reading about it a few years ago, I wanna go and see just how nuts the place truly is.
I've never been to Ghibli Museum either. It's on the list too.
Other destinations I've never been to, but would like to venture:
Australia, New Zealand, Vancouver(B.C.), Spain, Portugal, and The Pacific Northwest, specifically Oregon(Voodoo Donuts is a bonus) and Washington.
While we're on travel, I'm sick of driving... I wish I had the power to teleport anywhere I wanted to... ANYWHERE... I'd really love for there to be black smoke trails left behind from the sheer awesomness of said power. Cartoon letters expressing it would be even more awesome... "BAMF" or "POOF" would do...
Bruce Campbell should write more... "If Chins Could Kill: Confessions Of A B Movie Actor" is one of my favorite books ever read, seriously. It's not "Othello" but it's very entertaining.
Ever heard of Götz von Berlichingen? What a bad ass... If you ever get the opportunity, definitely tour the Bavarian countryside of Germany. It's magical... and the beer is more than words can do justice for.
I've always had a healthy obsession with ghost stories, UFO sightings, and urban legends. I devour the unexplained and what most people scoff off as bullshit. I don't believe in all of it, but I enjoy thinking about what I can't fully rule out as nonexistent.
When you get the chance, listen to Coast to Coast AM with George Noory on the radio or online, especially on Friday Night Open Lines. Look up some of the archives, truly captivating stories exchanged. They cover what's mentioned above, cryptids, string theory, natural disasters, conspiracy theories, anything and everything. Michio Kaku is a regular guest... Trust me, it's always brilliant.
Truth be told, "typical" doesn't fit into my vocabulary.
I always wanted a pet Mogwai. I finally found the closest thing to it. Sadly, I didn't adhere to the rule of not feeding him after midnight.
I have a chubby, furry, black gremlin named Jasper. I picked him up about seven years ago from an animal shelter, and it's been one hell of a journey ever since.
Jasper eats a lot... sleeps a lot... whines a lot... uses a lot of kitty litter... hates taking baths... loves scratching furniture... knocks a lot of shit over... Ok, so he can be a real jerk sometimes. The fact remains, he's my jerk and I love him very dearly.
*I think that's a fairly accurate description.
When I was kid, I thought I was a monkey. I was always climbing trees that I had no business ascending.
I once climbed an old oak tree in my grandmother's yard. It was a real mammoth. I got so high up it that I was too petrified to come down. I stayed up there a good while, quivering knees and all.
My grandparents couldn't talk me down and they sure as hell weren't coming up to get me.
My grandmother ended up calling the local fire department. They sent a ladder up and scooped my ass down.
It wouldn't have been so bad, if there hadn't been an old country store beside their house. The whole neighborhood stopped to witness this embarrassing moment.
My family would occasionally take trips to the beach in the summer. When I was growing up, the NC coast had the best piers out there. They had motels attached to most and the one(Triple S, formerly of Atlantic Beach) we stayed at was right along the water.
One morning, I woke up earlier than everyone else and ran out to the waves. I was by myself, but I had my trusty float in tow. I was paddling out trying to catch a nice wave in, unaware that the current was guiding me out.
Before I knew it, I could barely make out the shoreline. I panicked when I got off the float. My feet didn't grace the bottom. I felt the current's tug and it scared the hell out of me! I swam sideways as hard as I could. All I could think about was Jaws and potentially never seeing my family again. It took a while, but I made it back.
I jumped time to get indoors. I didn't tell my folks for fear of a severe tongue-lashing and ass whooping.
Needless to say, I never saw the float again. I told them it tore against the seashells, better than a giant shark engulfing it along with me.
Seriously, I hope that it detoxified your thoughts of all the redundancies that pollute online dating...
I know that I'm not going to attract everyone, but if you're looking for honesty and friendship first, here I am.
Personal chemistry and time will decide what fate has in store. If you can handle that, be my guest. The rest is up to the eye of the beholder.
If you embrace memories, dreams, and nostalgia. I'm often lost in thought. This doesn't mean that I can't afford enough sense to pay attention.
An advance apology if I don't reply swiftly enough. I have the application for this site. I may appear online even when I'm not.
