I am a bass player- I learned playing jazz punk and oldies but I can and like to play pretty much anything. Musical theatre was my last foray. I grew up dirty third coast.
My dear friends came up with a life philosophy called "Rage Law" that i tend to ascribe to. I'll describe it with an experiment-

Other notable interests include - Live music of all kinds, reading, NPR/Community Radio, biking, wikipedia diving, hanging out, Traveling (48 states, 6 other countries, and hoping to keep that number going up), playing pool and often getting my ass handed to me, cooking, raging - although this has gotten smoother with age. Riding my bike, going to a coffee shop for a good chat or reading sesh. Walks, swimming, and the occasional nature romp.
I love high energy and funny people. I dislike staying at home too often.
One of these days, I might get sick of what I am doing and go to grad school, probably to be a clinical psychologist. But probably not.
