Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
IM IN AUSTIN TX UNTIL JULY!! (when i most likely will be moving to
mexico, but thats another story)
I just moved to the Bay Area from Olympia, Washington. (well, like
a year ago). I love Oakland, but am finding it a bit difficult to
find friends and dates right off the bat, so I thought I'd give
this a try. I spent the past three years as a breadbaker, and so
I'm still somewhat of a nightowl, but getting over it. I wouldn't
say I'm political, but I read, learn, and discuss everything I can,
which usually brings me into that arena. I love to bike (dont own a
car and dont want one, dammit!) and currently work on the
berkeley/oakland border a few days a week. Also, I hope you aren't
allergic to cats, because I have a 3 year old tabby who I am
completely obsessed with, and I'd hate to make you sneeze!
Looking for friends, associates, and hot dates.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Communicating, telling my cat how much I love her, reading, and
thinking/talking about any old thing that affects me or anyone else
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall as hell and my hair is long and luscious.

Books: Outlaw Woman by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. (I cannot recommend
this book enough!), anything by Angela Davis, The Stars My
Destination by Alfred Bester, The Autobiography of Red by Anne
Carson, all Borges, older sci fi short stories (though Im probably
most into Phillip K Dick's stories, which are hardly old). I like
to read a lot, so you should really just ask me. Also I just
finished Margaret Atwood's "Handmaids Tale" and like, holy shit. i
love that book.
Movies: not a huge movie nerd, but I really like most 80's movies,
lots of old kung fu and horror from 60's-80's, the Warriors
(original), Bad News Bears (original ONLY), Back to School. I'll
really watch anything.
Music: lately its been a lot of chopped and screwed remixes of
Mariah Carey, old Jamaican ska and rocksteady, 70's and 80's
afro-pop/afro-jazz and highlife. Anything psychadelic and noisy
like Lucky Dragons, Animal Collective, Black Dice, etc.
The Kinks are my all time favorite rock group but theres always
Velvet Underground, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Can, Japanese
noise rock like Acid Mothers Temple and Flower Travellin' Band.
Just got a pristine copy of Pharoah Sanders' Black Unity that ive
been playing over and over. Honestly music is the one thing on here
that we really just need to talk about. too many to think of right
Food: Ive been vegetarian for about 8 years, but i dont care if you
are. in fact ill buy and cook meat stuff for other people, im just
not down to eat it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My record player/collection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Racial/class/indigenous peoples issues. How my own male bodied
white middle class existence can and should coincide with all the
fucked up shit goin down around us every day.
::Whoa, can you tell I was reading bell hooks when i wrote this
part? i think nowadays im a little more lighthearted!::
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to see some bands play and stop thinking about all the
depressing reading I probably did that week.
