Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm Linton, nice to meet you! I am fascinated by lots of
things, from space to writing to food (mmmm cheese), and everything
in between. My biggest obsession is music, both listening and
collecting. I love shopping record stores. I also really love
traveling. Finding neat places in new cities is always fun, but
driving the back roads to get there is even better. There's nothing
quite like driving a curvy road with the windows down so you can
smell the fresh air. New adventures are always fun, especially if
they turn into great stories. I enjoy art museums, delicious
restaurants, cooking, board and video games, hiking and camping,
reading, Netflix marathons, and cheese.
I work at a used book/music store, which only enables my habits. My
car is usually messy (who has time to clean it out when there are
so many adventures to be had?), though I keep trying. Tea is my
favorite hot beverage, though my roommate has gotten me into coffee
lately. He might have six+ methods for making it.
I like it when people are silly, adventurous, and spontaneous. I
love to listen to stories and grand ideas.
And apparently I'm long winded! So it's your turn. Tell me a little
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I run CDs at a used book/music store. Customer service has its ups
and downs, but it is a rewarding job. Plus, the discount!
Recently I've rediscovered the library. Working at a bookstore, you
tend to not need much, but there are certain graphic novels we
rarely see. I went to check out a couple of them...and ended up
reading something like 20 in the past couple of months. And I read
Harry Potter for the first time this summer. How did I pass that up
for so long??
I've been working my way through the 1001 Albums to Listen to
Before You Die (2/3's of the way done!), and started the classical
musical version of that book this year. I love discovering new
music, and talking to people about music that just moves them. I'm
putting together a project that combines my love of music and
travel; right now it's just a hobby, but it could turn into a
My cousin got me back into running, so I ran my first mini marathon
at the end of August. It was fun (I wasn't saying that for the
first thirty minutes after finishing it, hah). I guess I'm a runner
now? I make fun grilled cheese sandwiches with a friend of mine, so
we decided to work on writing the book 101 Grilled Cheese to Eat
(right) Before You Die. I do binge play video games from time to
time (Fallout 4 is coming in Novemeber!).

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably either my laugh, or my tendencies to do silly things.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever tangent my mind is on at that point. Could be time travel,
jelly fish, a really great song, good times with friends, how the
universe works, fun stories to write, where to drive next, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on the Friday! Tonight I'm watching a bunch of Dr. Who.
Sometimes I'm out for concerts, hanging out with friends (board
game night!), out on the town if there's something fun going on, or
every now and then, at work.

Just about anything. All you have to do is ask!

Just kidding. But if you like playing board games while listening
to music, need a road tripping partner, or like going on random
adventures, then definitely send me a message.
