Chances are if you have taken a photo in front of the "I love you so much" graffiti on the wall of Jo's Coffee on Congress, we probably have nothing in common.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been holding it down in Austin for a minute. I'm Considering going back to school at some point for a Ph.D. . I own my own business. I put out records on my label, help people put out records, sell records, and play on records! Oh yeah, I'm also a DJ that spins all over the east side. So yes, music is a huge part of my life.
Generally speaking, I try to infuse my life with knowledge, exploration, creativity, subversion, and honesty. I'm very driven and live my life with intensity. I know people say that on sites like this, but I actually do.
I’m really good at
Telling the truth, creativity, subversion, critical thinking, beating on the drums, playing guitar, learning quickly, psychology (they even gave me a degree and published my work in journals), quickly turning my bedroom into a recording studio, absurdity, dark humor, being a diehard individualist.
The first things people usually notice about me
Confident strut. Piercing blue eyes. Supple bottom lip. That I'm 8'9"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Retromania by Simon Reynolds is the last great, truly influential
book that I've read.
Punk rock/ hardcore (1979-1985 stuff mostly, not the stupid macho
metal stuff)/ post punk/ garage rock/ psychedelic rock/ dub /weirdo
outsider music made by crazy people for crazy people/ krautrock/
60s & 70s soul (Motown Tamla, Stax, etc)/ glam rock/ etc etc
The Prisoner (original '67 version) is the greatest television show
to ever exist. Twin Peaks, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Walking
Dead ain't too shabby either.
Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Sam Peckinpah, Sidney Lumet, Martin
Scorsese, John Schlesinger, Alfred Hitchcock, Sergio Leone,
Michelangelo Antonioni, Francois Truffaut, Ingmar Bergman, David
Kronenberg, John Cassavetes, etc etc etc
The six things I could never do without
1-6: A cup of black coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why 7-Eleven has locks on it's doors if it's open 24/7, 365 days a year.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing guitar in my underwear. Strutting somewhere on the east
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know how to whistle!
You should message me if
You're into adventure.
