My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
hi. i'm erik. i'm weird but in a good way, i think. i was lost for a long time but i think i'm finding my way these days and that makes me smile. i listen to a lot of music and could easily spend a whole day in a record store. i like questions and answers equally but i am definitely more freak than geek.

i also play in a one manned psychedelic, koala-based, punk rock band (think the flaming lips meets the wipers with a dash of the kinks.. but with more koala's and laser eyes).

i'm not entirely sure who or what i'm looking for but i don't think anyone really does.. i suppose someone nice but not all the time (it's good to be an asshole sometimes). someone who loves music (preferably picking neil young over bob dylan every time but not required). creative people (if you make things, we'll certainly get along). someone that will give me a hug even when i'm being stupid (especially when i'm being stupid). someone who understands the power of "yes!" (there's a lot of negativity in the world and, while i'm not saying it's not just, there's something to be said for the awesomeness of "yes!").

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
