Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I spend a lot of time going to open mics and writing music, and
I've never been told to stop...so that counts as a win in my
I'm also really big into homebrewing, and with Winter (or as close
as we come to Winter in San Francisco) on its way I have a lot of
things bubbling away right now. The current lineup is a Lavender
Honey Wheat, a Vanilla Stout and an Imperial IPA I'm calling 'The
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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My telescoping reptilian tongue and my laser-beam eyes.

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
Shows: Firefly, Dexter, Star Trek TNG, Sherlock, and on along that
vein. I also was recently introduced to the masterpiece that is
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 triumverate of
an obsession with Harry Nilsson, The Band, and Paul Simon.
Food: Milk steak, boiled over hard, and a side of raw jelly beans.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have a brain that likes to obsess over certain points of
interest, one at a time, sussing them out for a month or two until
all available information is sucked up. This has left me with a
wide variety of useless and disparate skills, like Tuvan throat
singing or being able to walk quarters up my knuckles.
When I'm going about my day to day business I like to zone out and
write songs in my head...so that ends up eating up a lot of my
bandwidth these days.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing the banjo with a kazoo in my mouth.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Aside from my spectacularly illegal panda wrestling
I DM an ongoing game of DnD 3.5 on Monday nights.
