My self-summary
Did you ever hear that quote from Bill Hicks, "looks like we got ourselves a reader!" Thats me, I love Salman Rushdie, Thomas Pynchon, Virginia Woolf (especially her poetry), Kurt Vonnegut, and even Bukowski. I say even Bukowski because it can be so trendy to like or dislike him. I love his poetry, especially "A Radio with Guts," google it, it's good. I also love to get outside and play sports. I just finished up my softball season for fall and I hope my team gets it together for next spring too.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to write poetry as much as I can. You can read me at (I'm in issues 1,3, and 5). My friend Ian publishes the magazine, its real cool. I just started playing in a rock and roll band and it's pretty fun. We have one album done and are working on more. We are playing our first out of town show soon, wish me luck...
I’m really good at
Red River Gorging it! chop chop chop chop. It's so beautiful down there. I love camping on the 219 trail (angel's windows) because you can get away from most of the touristy stuff. My friend JK and I battle chop wood.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height--6'3" with the fro. I am a big dude, athletic not fat, just big. I once had a chiropractor tell me my vertebrae felt like dinosaur bones (actually, I think he used the word Diplodocus, I'm pretty sure thats a dinosaur right? --just googled it for the spelling, it is).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gravity's Rainbow, The Satanic Verses (This book is soo insane. Just the way it starts out, the plane breaking up with Gibreel and Chamcha soaring down to England. And the parts with Mahound, sooo crazy. I wish it wasn't offensive to some religious types because I don't think it should be. I mean, why can't Rushdie get away with a valid critique?), Skinny Legs and All (Go out and get anything by Tom Robbins, you won't be disappointed, I promise.), The Rum Diaries (I love how for most of the book, they're eating hamburgers), Catch 22, Jailbird, Breakfast of Champions, Bluebeard. Flaming Lips (one time, when I was working at Cincinnati Museum Center, the bass player came in with his wife and small child and I said to him, "hey, aren't you the guy from the Flaming Lips?" His wife seemed really appreciative that I recognized him--maybe he doesn't get recognized that often because he seemed nervous that I knew who he was.), The Clash, Animal Collective--especially Panda Bear, Modest Mouse, Dinosaur Jr., Black Sabbath, ODB, Harry Nilsson (gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes, what if i'm late got a big date, i gotta run run yeaaah), The Specials, Built to Spill, Tool, Johnny Cash, NOFX, Ween, SONIC YOUTH (I always liked Daydream Nation and Goo, but my friend Chad recently introduced me to the album Sister, which is really good too). The Big Lebowski, I don't watch many movies, but I think this movie is one of the best of our time. It seems to me that it's an allegory for the first Iraq war. The scenes where Saddam is handing out shoes at the bowling alley are what made me start thinking along those lines. True Stories, anything David Byrne is good. Tarantino movies. Thai Express
The six things I could never do without
My friends and family, pages, COFFEE (My friend works for Starbucks, she gets tons of free coffee, and hooks me up with it when I need it and now I'm crazy addicted to it. She's pretty much like a crack dealer to me now. I feel bad about it though because I like to support local businesses like Cluxton Alley Roasters.), good conversation, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
out on the town! I like to go out a lot with my friends. I like to hang out at places in Northside and downtown. Live music is my passion.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I need people. I got that from the Chinese zodiac (I'm a horse.), but I believe it to be true.
You should message me if
You have an eclectic music taste.
