Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a pretty divided nature. I have a very alternative beliefs
and lifestyle, but carry them out in what I believe to be an
extremely rational logical way.
I am an artist, but I also know it's practically impossible to make
a living at it and not starve in a garret. I've tried to design a
life that gives me the maximum amount of time for my own projects,
while still giving me enough money to live a whole life, and to
sock money away for when I'm a codger.
I like science too, a lot- but I also realize it is limited in
scope in the methods it can use and what it can explain- just for
now it's the best game in town.
Living an interesting life is a priority of mine, sometimes this is
at the cost of comfort, I consider having good stories to be more
then adequate payment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So I bought a house south of Charlottesville. It needs a lot of
work, like foundation/windows/walls work. So it is keeping me busy.
I have a lot of little independent jobs, so I have lots of free
time to fix it.
I'm a medical test subject, drug companies pay me to try new
compounds, so far I haven't developed any super powers but I've got
my fingers crossed. I also do quite a bit of handyman work
(carpentry, plumbing, painting) which is nice way to acquire tools
My true passion for work is being a artisan craftsman. I'm
constantly trying out new materials and products to find that magic
product/skill that will enable me to never need to commute
I spend time making basic things (soap, vanilla, beer, yogurt,
amaretto, cologne, knives, furniture) out of their raw materials.
They tend to be of a better quality and cheaper and I can get them
exactly as I like them.
Anyway, if you are down with sawdust and tools strewn about- you
are down with me.
I'm doing a lot of dumpster diving, so I have this ridiculous
amount of food in my freezer, and I really like feeding people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading stories to children, Making and recognizing beauty, Problem
solving in a crisis, Talking with my hands, Catching things that
have fallen off the table, Being a Stoic, Accidentally offending
strong type-A personalities, Being a maven, Painting naked people,
Cooking with a crockpot, Missing Sarcastic questions.

Books are very good, and I believe I unfairly weight this section
in other people's profiles.
I like a lot of genres but I'm finding I really like books were I
don't really know what is going on.
Authors I love
Richard Brautigan, Haruki Murakami, Jeffrey Eugenides,
Paul Aster, Frank Herbert, Neal Stephenson, John Irving
I've started to real get into some graphic novels, the combination
of visuals and story itch my brain exactly right, but because there
are more elements there are more things to not like, so it can be
harder to find ones I like. I Really enjoy
Seth, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechde,
I'm having trouble finding new beautiful things to read so if you
have any ideas hit me up.
It is however important to listen to Sunday morning bluegrass on
NPR while eating a farmer's breakfast.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
libraries- They have books, air conditioning, internet, bathrooms
what more do you want?

too big to fit in the sink
conversation- good stories are life

What should I do with this motor I pulled from this washer?
I am very interested (and somewhat skeptical) about alternate
building techniques and power sources, so I think about them a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Picking up some weird free thing I found on Craigslist.
Curled up in a quilt next to a wood stove, while reading, playing
an old video game, or crafting.
Although I have been known to drop everything to go to a crazy
theme party or watch a concert.

I think my perfect lifestyle would be like Frida Kahlo and Diego
Rivera, romantically involved but living in houses next to each
other; having exciting love affairs with famous communists, but
without the insane jealousy and violent quarrels.
You want to go hiking. You have some good book recommendations. You
like pawing through thrift stores and yard sales. You like making
