I've been living in San Jose for a while now, I've finally begun to
set down roots here and find out what I like about it. I'm down
with art walks, downtown coffee runs, helping throw house parties,
heading to Santa Cruz for renegades, and exploring the Bay Area. I
try to keep busy but I relax with movies, music, and video games.
The best time for me is spent traveling. I love nature, I mean I
grew up in Tahoe, how could I not? So often I like to get away and
take a hike. Or get to SF and do some urban exporation and try to
find some trouble. I'm very laid back and open minded. I like
talking about politics and religion, social anthropology and other
big picture concepts. I have a uniqe background and have gone to
great lengths to find myself, I like sharing my stories with others
and listening to theirs.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm been discovering a career path that attracted me while going to
City College, why pay the big bucks when you aren't quite sure what
you would be happy with right? Finally I've realized that I would
be able to really dive deep into a career in Public Realations.
I've found motivation through a desire to bring to light political
and cultural inequity in America so I'm actually excited to be
going to school again. For the first time since freshman year I
Outside of school and work I like to take on projects and help
friends with theirs. Communal DIY type stuff. I'm hoping I can meet
people on here that are down to build their own experiences.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well not too many guys are can pull off braids like me, so I would
imagine that's among the top things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Beat Literature (Ginsberg, Keroauc, Cassady, Burroughs)
Oscar Wilde, Aldous Huxley, His Dark Materials. Charles Bukowski,
The Electric Kool Aid Acid Trip. I love Hunter S Thompson. Oh and
Calvin and Hobbes!
Movies: Oh I love a good mind fuck movie! Like Terry Gilliam's
stuff (Fear and Loathing, Brazil) or Waking Life. I really like
Miyazaki films, Princess Mononoke is a favorite. Quentine Tarratino
is rad. I love late 80's/early 90's NON DISNEY animated flicks like
Heavy Metal, Rock and Rule, and Fern Gully. Brad Pitt, George
Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Edward Norton and Jhonny Depp are all
pretty cool. Honestly I watch a bunch of movies, but I generally
don't enjoy GENERIC BLOCKBLUSTER PLOT 1-25
Shows: I really dig South Park, The Daily Show, and Colbert Report.
Don't watch as much TV as I do Movies and I generally enjoy for TV
comedies than dramas. House is cool I guess.
Music: Fuck I really can't list everything and I know you don't
want to read it so let me just go from the top of my head.
-Stuff that makes me dance at raves and rave like events.
-Hip Hop that ain't about bitches and hoes but rather about massive
inequality, big problems in life, and human perseverance.
-Grunge/Psychedelic atonal garage jam bands
-Psychedelic 60's/70's rock
-NPR on the radio!!
-A whole bunch of other stuff.
Food: I try a lot of new stuff as often as I can and rarely go to
the same place twice unless it's really great.
The six things I could never do without
Computer- This is vital to my life as a student, I must connect to
the internet hive-mind. It's also my TV, stereo, and musical
Guitar- I literally never have gone without one for about 8 years
now. This summer while camping for a month or two in Tahoe it was
my best companion actually.
Notepad- If I keep writing maybe one day I will be able to express
an honest, ego-less thought, stream of consciousness style.
My Subaru- When traveling there is always a destination, even when
you don't know where you want to go, the road will provide.
Friends- The human condition is hanging out and chatting with other
Caffeine- At least if I want to feel alive before 10 in the
morning. I also enjoy a good smoke.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Past Present and Future, putting on parties and traveling, living
for the moment and planning for my path.
On a typical Friday night I am
I use to have a bigger group of close friends before my recent move
but when I'm with the right people I like to spontaneously go to
the city, or santa cruz, or an art walk, or a hike, or camping, or
jam. If I need to relax from a busy week I'm watching movies and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a mixed history with a few chemicals. I own my experiences
and realize how I became the great and empathetic person I am
today. A lot of that is due to how I lost my path with
dissociatives and forged a new one with the help of one great
psychedelic summer in tahoe. The one aspect of me that is spiritual
stems from this and I have quite a few interesting stories I like
to share. I like some of the more alternative and "weird"
experiences in life. :) In the best way possible!
You should message me if
You want to head downtown for an art walk, into the santa cruz area
for a hike or a renegade, or kick it exploring SF or the rest of
the bay area. I'm always down to catch a movie that you think we
could share interest in and love the classic, coffee, dinner, and a
movie date as well.
