I don't like the term self-summary. There's something morbid about
My name is Joe. I am queer and non-monogamous (or, more accurately,
I tend to roll towards what some folks call "relationship anarchy"
- wiki that shit).
I am a professional musician. I have tons of hearing damage. There
is a causal correlation in those statements.
I am very pragmatic and reasonable, I swear. That said, I like to
act really satanic and rock n' roll, because that's fun. Hail
I pretty much don't message people on here, because the internet is
not real, but I do get excited when I get messages.
What I’m doing with my life
I play music and tour around. Sometimes I draw pictures and
taxidermy small animals into amusing poses. At my day job (kept) I
make coffee, order beer, and run sound. Sometimes I write songs
about haunted houses.
I’m really good at
Having drinks in my hands when people take pictures. Hyphenating
words. Writing music. I can make a mess like nobody's business. I
think I'm pretty good at imitating the writing style of famous
authors, but I haven't really tried that much (not a great market,
that). I can probably fix your banjo.
The first things people usually notice about me
The big, loud noises that come out of my mouth-hole, as well as the
arm-waving and foot-stomping. Also, my regrettable taste in
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, Jorge Luis Borges, Raymond
Carver. Mostly into short fiction.
Movies: Mike Leigh's Naked, Jaws, David Lynch, John Waters,
anything animated or stop-motion.
Don't watch much TV, but I get along with the X-Files.
Music: I love everything about music. Favorite music changes daily.
Loud is good. Noisy is good. Intellectual is good. Tin Hat Trio is
the best band in the world, but they're not punx enough for me when
I walk to the store to buy juice.
Food: Cajun food, fancy beer.
I also collect strange antiques, bizarre old prints, bones, and
other such ephemera.
The six things I could never do without
Some kind of instrument.
Otherwise, I'm pretty good.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music. All the people I'm crushing on (I crush on everyone, all the
time). The projects I'm working on. Monsters. Needing to do
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm bad at being genuine. I'm intimidated by other people's
profiles because they are funny and sincere and I think mine is
just kind of pretentious.
