for now, i'll say i make music, i write, i try and figure out my place in life. i engage in community organizing when i feel up to it. sometimes i perform spoken word, and self-publish poetry and short stories. i recently started on a new, bigger writing project thats soaking up most of my creative energy, but i'm also trying to expand musically.
i'm an anarchist, but that should only be scary to racists, homophobes, misogynists and other affiliated scumbaggery. most of the anarchists i know are actually the most kind, loving, supportive people you could ever hope to meet. unless you're a fascist.
I spend a lot of time attempting to deconstruct my privilege and decolonize my mind (emphasis on 'attempt'). lately i've really come to realize that this is only one half of an equation, and that from this work there comes an entire additional set of challenges around cultural identity, and what the hell one should DO exactly about this well-scrutinized, interconnected web of privilege-relations
i'm a huge proponent of the notion that consent is sexy.
i mean, it can be a bit awkward, but only if applied awkwardly- its super empowering and amazing if approached with appropriate measures of openness & creativity :)
i love big ideas; thoughts so massive they exert their own gravitational pull. i bask in their tides. i love the moment of dancing, by myself or preferably with others, on the very edge of Things Not Thought Before, or at least outside of some specific context.
I'd rather have a great conversation than great sex, and i'm a huge fan of great sex
I love travelling on the cheap (ie. hitch hiking and train hopping), sharing stories, making music, exploring new ideas and ways of relating to people, meeting new folks and generally trying to come to a better understanding of the human condition, whatever the hell that means.
I like fixing things, tinkering, taking things apart, and turning found items and junk into useful objects. i like to sneak onto rooftops, into tunnels and derelict buildings, and writing poems about them.
I can be deadly serious, completely ridiculous and silly, and everywhere in-between. i think i do a pretty good job of being the right one for the occassion.
i know how to use grammer, punctuation and capitalization properly (for the most part), and i often actively choose not to in casual communication. language, and our expression of it, is fluid and constantly changing, so why not embrace that?
on my part this is largely due to a confluence of laziness and a latent desire to use fewer keystrokes. plus, i think capitalization is a subtextual minefield.
