My self-summary
Hi, I'm Ed. I was born in the Bay Area and raised in San Francisco for the most part. I'm generally making music of one kind or another, and if I'm not doing that I'm usually reading a book or playing video games.

Also, I'm curious as to how the technomancers that run this site are able to determine that I'm 'More Experienced in Life' than other men my age when I'm answering questions about Pixar movies and whether or not the sun is larger than the Earth.

Also: Cards Against Humanity
What I’m doing with my life
Playing with parrots for a living at the local pet store, writing music in funky alternate tunings, percolating potential DnD scenarios, and failing to cultivate a convincing aura of disheveled genius.

I'm also chasing a degree in Marine Biology at SF State. Doctorate is the goal, but I enjoy getting sidetracked.

Current Ambition: Beard of Bees
I’m really good at
I spend a lot of time going to open mics and writing music, and I've never been told to that counts as a win in my book.

I'm also really big into homebrewing, and I generally have a lot of things bubbling away at any given point. The current lineup is a Lavender Honey Wheat, a Vanilla Stout and an Imperial IPA I'm calling 'The Electric Chainsaw'.

I have a good mind for intellectual trivia that I like to supplant with a steady diet of documentaries... and as a result I know a lot more about random crap than I probably should.

Bad celebrity impressions are a specialty.
The first things people usually notice about me
My telescoping reptilian tongue and my laser-beam eyes.

(All joking aside, I have no goddamn idea.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Standard uber geek fare:

Books: The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King, I'm also really big into the Sandman Chronicles by Neil Gaiman.

Garth Nix, man. I just finished Sabriel. Holy crap.

Movies: Big Fish is my favorite, but I loves me some Indiana Jones.

Shows: Firefly, Dexter, Star Trek TNG, Sherlock, and on along that vein. I also was recently introduced to the masterpiece that is Northern Exposure.

Music: I'm a huge fan of the Blues. The older and delta-ier the better. Folk, Country, Dixie Jazz, Gypsy Swing, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, and Celtic Folk... Most of the time if it has a virtuosity to it, I can get into it.

The apex of musical expectation sits with Leo Kottke's hallucinogenic weirdness, though I've had a recent obsession with The Band.

Food: Milk steak, boiled over hard, and a side of raw jelly beans.
The six things I could never do without
There's probably a weak joke I could make about homeostasis here, but I'll pass.

1. My Guitar
2. A Notebook
3. A Pen
4. A Frying Pan
5. My Banjo
6. A Good Book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'm going about my day to day business I like to zone out and write songs in my that ends up eating up a lot of my bandwidth these days.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing the banjo with a kazoo in my mouth.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Aside from my spectacularly illegal panda wrestling operation?

I DM an ongoing game of DnD 3.5 on Monday nights.
You should message me if
DFTBA means anything to you.

You laughed at least once.

You think House Hufflepuff is super underrated.

You wanna talk nerdy with me or grab a six pack and watch The Muppet Show.
