Doing things simply because "that's how things have always been done" or because some arbitrary rule/law/social convention dicates that I should is not how I role. I may conform to rules/traditions I disagree with, but only when I have determined that it will benefit me or someone I care about in some way. I like rocking the boat/stirring up controversy wherever I am able. If I am told that I shouldn't do or say something and not given a good reason as to why I shouldn't, I will probably be more inclined to say or do that very thing than I would be otherwise. Kinda like a kid who wasn't even thinking about cookies being told not to grab a cookie from the cookie jar. Of course he's going to want a fucking cookie! You brought it up! Lol.
I have no filter and could give a crap if people choose to be offended by my words/my views.
Politically, I take no sides and don't buy into the whole "left vs. right"/"liberal vs. conservative" myth as it is just a tool for those claiming authority to divide people and distract them from the real issues. I also have no loyalty to any chunk of rock or colorful rag that represents it, nor the people who claim authority over it/their armed enforcers. Countries do not exist (look at a picture of the earth...no borders, just landmasses and water) and no matter what chunk of rock you go to, the people that live on that particular chunk of rock consider theirs to be the best. Patriotism, like religion, creates an "us and them" mentality and is there to control and separate people. I feel that an individual should be able to do whatever they wish, when they wish, how they wish, and with who they wish as long as they don't infringe on another's right to do the same.
Music is a huge part of my life, though I have been taking a break from it as of late. Here is a live/solo acoustic track I recorded a little over a year ago: soundcloud.com/intentionalmisuse
I also enjoy art/drawing and have dabbled in tattooing in the past.
Big Star Wars fan...even the prequels and special editions, though I think there are things that could have been done differently. Cautiously optimisitic about episode 7...especially after seeing the trailers. Fun fact: I tattooed Darth Vader's helmet on my arm.
I also enjoy setting up/maintaining aquariums. Been doing it since I was a kid.
I'm currently trying my hand at growing my own food as a way to stick it to the man by being less reliant on grocery stores. Got two tomato plants, and a few broccoli plants that are doing well, of course they are transplants. I also planted some corn and onion seeds. Hopefully they do well, but only a couple have started to sprout, so far. So far its been a pretty good learning experience.
