I am me, the freak amongst freaks. the weirdest of the weird. he
who shall not be named, wait, now I'm starting to sound biblical.
I'm just me, your friendly neighborhood sideshow performer.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a pro freak. I eat and breath fire, I lay on beds of nails, I
escape from straight jackets, and I basically will do anything to
keep from having to get a real job :) unfortunately the real world
comes knocking so I do have a "real" job most of the time, but I'm
working more and more to that self sufficient free freak lifestyle.
I’m really good at
anything I put my mind to. I've done everything from being a DJ to
pro wrestling, commercial fishing, auto mechanics, pounding nails
into my face, retail sales, breaking cinder blocks on my crotch
(those last two are alot alike) building houses, building giant
paper mache caterpillars. if I try real hard I can usually do
whatever needs to be done (and some things that should never be
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. really talk. really freakishly tall. oh and I tend to have odd hair on my head and face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read everything, from wikipedia pages late into the night, to political statements from all forms of the spectrum, to sci-fi and fantasy. favorite authors include neil gaiman, robert anton wilson, chris claremont, poppy z brite.
I listen to alot of music, much of it is rather odd. I can list genres but it's really so eclectic that even that may not help. if I say goth and you think nine inch nails or marylin manson they you'd be a bit off. when I listen to gothic rock I tend to either listen to the founders of the style (bauhaus, the birthday party, siouxsie) or really obscure stuff (executive slacks, diamanda galas, einsturzende neubauten) if I say I listen to neo-cabaret sure I listen to the dresden dolls, but I also listen to alot of jill tracy, hannah furry, humanwine. I'll listen to just about anything, but I've got my weird tastes. cibo-mato over gorillas, bourbon crow over hank williams, the nightwatchman over rage against the machine, bucketheads cornbugs or praxis over any big band he's worked with (G-n-r system of a down, etc) that sort of thing.
The six things I could never do without
music. if I go a while without listening to music I start to get
grumpy. if I go to long after that I get crazy, and for me saying I
go crazy means alot (or not that much depending on how you look at
books. much the same as above. a good read keeps me sane, stops the
head from thinking about too much at once.
friends. most of my family is dead, my friends are all i have. I'm
not the sort of person who could live in seclusion under a rock
somewhere (not that I haven't tried) I live my life to keep my
friends happy, be that giving them a place to stay with me, or
building them one so I can come crash whenever I want.
food and water. the source of all life.
change. nothing is the same for me, my life has always been in
flux. at this point if you told me the rest of my life would be
exactly the same I would die, choked to death on the banality of it
my kids. I may not get to see them every day, but damn how I miss
them when I don't.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the end of the world as we know it. how it will come and what we can all do to live through it. lesson number 1, get the heck off the east coast, we're too overpopulated here. when the s hits the f there will not be enough food to go around and I don't want to start practicing cannibalism just to get through the day.
On a typical Friday night I am
there is little to nothing typical about my life. one friday I'll
be performing, the next I'll be asleep by 8.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an unapologetic Anarchist. No that does not mean I go around all smashy smashy. No that does not mean I support chaos. I'm very much in favor of order, just the order of the many not the order of the few.
Looking at my musical tastes (and facial hair) some would call me a hipster. In fact some have. I would argue that point but I realize that a hipster would always say they are not one. Since we are admitting things here I will state that I am too old to be a hipster, instead I am the proto-hipster.
Also I dance when I clean.
You should message me if
You want to. No really it's okay, send me a message.
