Time for an update!
I'm moving to Boston! I'll be there and (hopefully) all moved in at
the start of July. So long Seattle, hello adventure.
I play guitar. I cook. I really like comic books, video games and
music. I'm fond of Dungeons & Dragons. I was going to culinary
school. Currently, I'm back to just working. I'll probably go back
to school soon. I'm a very sarcastic, fairly cynical person. And i
own a cat. She's awesome. And super fluffy. Her name is Chloe. I
played in a ska punk band called The Trutones for seven years, and
I would love to get back into some sort of a band. It was a blast
and I really miss it. So far, I'm up to 14 tattoos. Roughly a
sleeve and a half and my chest/collarbones. The chest was hell. I'm
rather proud of the fact they're all able to be covered up by a
dress shirt. I clean up well.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently gearing up to move to Boston at the end of the month.
I can't wait. It'll be a great road trip with an awesome
destination at the end. I moved to Seattle to attend culinary
school two years ago or so although I had to drop out of the
program. Too many old injuries for kitchen work and concerts, I
guess. Hoping to get back into playing live music again, but for
right now, i'm focusing on work. (in other words, I haven't found a
band's worth of people yet, or schooling that I care to pay for.)
I’m really good at
making awkward and inappropriate jokes, procrastinating, playing
loud/fast/simple rhythm guitar, making fairly awesome meals out of
scraps in the fridge, recalling useless facts, and math (although
i'm kinda out of practice with that last one)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm fairly tall, my ever increasing tattoo coverage (I laughed when
they said that it was an addiction), and the fact that I guess I
look jewish (it comes up often).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite genres of music are ska, punk, rock and roll, and pop
punk. Favorite bands are (in no particular order) Less Than Jake,
Rude Tuna (old dear friends), The Specials, Bomb The Music
Industry!, Arrogant Sons Of Bitches, Streetlight Manifesto,
blink-182, Murder City Devils, Nirvana, Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Sex
Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Big D & The Kid's Table, Mighty Mighty
Bosstones, Minor Threat, Murder By Death, Morphine, Racetrack, USS
Horsewhip, Black Eyes and Neckties, Refused, Descendents, Bad
Religion, and Everclear. I could keep going, but I won't bore you.
Recently, I've been listening to a lot of waaaayyyyy too much Bomb
The Music Industry!, Defiance Ohio, and Swingin' Utters.
I love comic books. I've been called a Marvel fanboy in the past.
Captain America is my favorite super hero book (i have the 1941
shield tattooed to my chest). I've been reading a lot of rock
history books recently. I'm a fan of true crime books that break
down patterns and possible answers to unsolved crimes. Sci fi and
fantasy are really cool too.
Dr Who, Archer, and How I Met Your Mother are my favorite tv shows.
I don't have cable currently. They're the only three shows I
attempt to keep up with online. Firefly was amazing as well. I'm
really not a fan of most movies. At least not enough to go out of
my way to watch them. But Star Wars, Serenity, most
horror/suspense, and basically all but the most horrifyingly 80s
James Bond movies will always hold a special place in my
As far as food is concerned, my favorite things to make and eat are
generally thai or japanese. I'm starting to teach myself how to
make old school southern food, and authentic thai, japanese, and
korean food, but its been slow going.
The six things I could never do without
My music collection, my guitar, tattoos, my friends, fun ways to
piss away an afternoon, good food, and the occasional glass of
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how much i want to go on tour, what i'm going to eat for dinner, or
most importantly, what my next tattoo is going to be and where i'm
going to get the money to get it. school, work, and how i should
probably call my mom also come up at least every once in a while...
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, not much different than any other night. I'm probably
either hanging out with friends, reading, playing video games,
watching Dr. Who, at a show, or something to that extent. Although,
its been too long since I've been to a good show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I made a profile on here? If its truly private, i'm probably not
very likely to share it with the whole world. I'll be honest. But
it doesn't hurt to ask.
You should message me if
you feel inclined to.
I swear I'm friendly.
