Ok, well I was born and raised in Miami so ya tu sabes! But have been living in Philthydelphia since the summer of '13. I was a teacher until I realized just how much reproductive work sucks under capitalism (abolish work yo!). I'm a bibliophile/ book fetishist, and strongly concur with Borges that,“...Paradise will be a kind of library.” If my head isn't buried in a book, I'm usually daydreaming about the destruction of of the value-form and all hierarchies. Otherwise, I enjoy worshiping our Dark Lord, headbanging to the deafening silence emitting from the Void, and pahtying like Sabbath in 72.
What I’m doing with my life
What a mindfuck of a question! Ok, here's the normie respond. I'm currently trying to figure out how I can work less, make more money, and have more time to read, drink with friends or alone, learn to play some bluesy riffs to do something with all these feels, write, etc. If only there was a way to reorganize society so as to be able to have more time to enjoy the things we really want to do....
I’m really good at
Very limited skill set here. Naming things and coming up with titles for stuff, making fun of the things I like, being a poser, shredding on an air guitar, consuming ungodly amounts of alcohol, coming up with bad puns, recommending books or beers (craft or the piss water type, don't matter), being a human pillow, being a human heat blanket, playing amateur shrink, discussing politics or philosophy, and teaching History.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard, it's kinda all over my face (don't worry I haven't given it a name or anything like that ok). If on the dance floor, then it's probably my sick footwork. Hopefully, they also notice my seething hate for the police.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading: Anti-Oedipus, No Boundaries, Endnotes#2, Proust was a Neuroscientist.
You know, like all that indie, black and white, subtitled, Criterion Collection type shit. Give me some Jodorowsky too. Also campy horror shit is cool. Last movie I remember seeing in theaters was Mad Max: Fury Road; I'm looking fwd to the new Hunger Games tho.
All the cool ones most white ppl of my age/socio-economic status are watching. Currently watching: The Walking Dead; Master of None; Rick and Morty; China, IL,; Star Treck: DS9; catching up on GoT; and just finished The 100's.
Really anything dark, heavy, and preferable slow. Way too much shit to list, but these are the albums I've listened to in the last week and liked: Big Sean-Dark Sky Paradise, Sepultura-Beneath the Remains, Diamond Head-Lightning to the Nation, Atomic Rooster-Death Walks Behind You, Deafheaven-New Bermuda, ISIS-Oceanic, Pertubator-Dangerous Days.
Middle Eastern and Mediterranean. And fucking Cuban food! God I miss Cuban food.
The six things I could never do without
1.) Good Beer
2.) books (and bookshelves)
3.) a good haircut
6.) utopian idealism
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to expropriate the bourgeoisie, Nietzsche's Eternal Recurrence, astrology, what I'm going to eat, is there enuff beer, love, being-towards-death.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideal: Drinking, dancing, and/or raging! Reality: Netflix and chillin wit muhslf
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a total poser. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm a bro with better: gender politics, taste in beer, music, and clothes.
