My self-summary
i'm a poetry/fiction writer, digital 'artist', enthusiast of experimental art forms and i'm also sometimes a pretty chilled-out gigantic horseshoe crab or a pretty chilled-out gigantic sun bear. i'll probably enjoy talking with you regardless of whether or not we're actually getting along. especially if that conversation takes place on a front porch, whether it's us sitting and talking on a front porch or we're both on different front porches and talking online. i'll probably be drinking and trying to keep my thoughts straight. well, i'll probably be trying to keep my thoughts straight for the rest of my life.

debating on whether or not to just replace all of this with a picture of the pusheen cat lying down in an empty pizza box.
What I’m doing with my life
i'm sitting right now. i'm sitting in a chair. there's a cigarette in my mouth, but i'm trying to stop smoking indoors, so my hands are kind of shaking while i'm typing this, because i want to smoke it and stop writing about what i'm doing with my life. i'm interning for a small press in portland, and i have to read submissions for the journal they're releasing, but sometimes it's hard to go through a bunch of disjointed (both in tone and in subjective quality) things, then not feel like you're doing it wrong yourself. i'm waiting to do something else, like maybe crack or GHB, or maybe going to an MFA program so i can feel like i grew up. but mostly just like sitting. i should probably go out and smoke.

i'm a native, but i just moved into the city recently after spending a few months out in the suburbs, and before that, a few years down in southern oregon. i like being back up here, but it sure as hell provides plenty of distractions. okcupid is probably one of those distractions, but i enjoy being on it enough to not think of it as one.

on the day to day level, i tend to do shit for the press, make a bunch of macros for the digital arts collective my friend and i made, drink a shitload of coffee, switch to viso, smoke cigarettes until i run out of them, go buy more cigarettes, and then get an idea for a poem i probably won't write. generally, just the best dude in the fuckin' world.
I’m really good at
being open and communicative about my interests, sitting, wearing cool/ok-seeming clothes, wearing excellent shoes, inadvertently making people laugh at me, being a complete pile of shit
The first things people usually notice about me
my odd, slouchy posture.
that i look like jack black (please stop).

(food)
so like, if you massage kale with crazy salt and olive oil (like really knead the shit out of it for a few minutes) it tastes way better than steaming, boiling or pan-frying it. also, you're able to digest it better. when you cook greens, most of the nutrients, especially fiber, get thrown out the window. i'm just lookin' out for ya. Trust Me.
The six things I could never do without
engaging with people i respect.
having time to write/make visual stuff.
having a lot of people around me that make me happy / having a lot of people around me that i make happy.
coffee/beer/cigarettes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
politics of rhizomism in whichever current digital platform or series of social interfaces i'm a part of.
how i come across to others and how to be a good person through what i say and do; to be comfortable, to make others feel my comfort and feel comfortable themselves, and to always listen.
puppies.
how cute puppies are.
how cute are puppies?
puppies bein' tight as fuck.
On a typical Friday night I am
either at home drinking a beer with someone or out getting a beer with someone.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
though i'm generally comfortable with the way i look, part of me hates my male-pattern balding. i want long, bon scott-lookin' locks.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 21–80
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
you want to have a conversation
you want me to fucking crush you at pinball

oh, also, i'm trying to read more philosophy. i tend toward postmoderns (derrida, baudrillard, virilio, D&G) and frankfurt school bros (unamuno, what i've read of adorno, loosely bataille), but want to get into more recent things in feminism (butler, kristeva, kraus--if you want to consider her a philosopher). if you're into stuff like that (any of the above) message me and recommend me some works.

(please don't say hegel)
