Musician, artist, and writer with a tech job and a bunch of
What I’m doing with my life
Making music of multiple flavors. Not using my education in journalism. Working my ass off at my job and loving the company I work for. Learning to surf. Seeing what the bay has to to offer. Trying to be a better musician/person/life form.
I’m really good at
Guitar, backrubs, making curry, retaining useless morsels of
esoteric knowledge while forgetting the name of someone I met 15
minutes ago, talking, listening. being quiet during movies,
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, no hair, talk too much, bunch of tattoos, that I don't look
my age? No idea. Probably depends on the situation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bukowski, Clive Barker, David Sedaris, the Harry Potter
stuff, Steven King, Ayn Rand, cheesy fantasy shit, anything to do
with music, eastern philosophy, or bizarre historical facts.
Music: There are only 2 types of music: good and bad. Every other
distinction is a fashion statement. If pressed..hmm.. Jeff Buckley,
Steve Vai, Ryan Adams, Porcupine Tree, Mastodon, Damien Rice, Ani
Difranco, Hendrix, Cream, Beatles, Social Distortion, Misfits,
Slayer, Raul Midon, John Mayer (shush, he's a good guitar player),
Charlie Hunter, Flecktones, Phish, Zappa, Devin Townsend, I have a
metric ton of stuff in my itunes playlist, so I'll just stop
Movies: Bad horror, good horror, particularly bad 70's and 80's
horror. In Bruges, 7 pounds, pretty much everything Guy Ritchie
ever did, obscure indie films. I have a goal to get through the
entire criterion collection before I die. That's taking some time.
The six things I could never do without
Mr. Bartholomew J. Fuzzypants. I love that furry little pain in my ass.
Passion (and not just in the "lets get naughty" way)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next step, the nature of conciousness, whether I should cook or
just walk around the corner to get cheap Chinese food. Whether my
music is good, or I just think it is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a show, at home reading, working on music, or watching some
of those bad movies. There's really no "typical" night.
You should message me if
Anything here sounds vaguely interesting. You play music. You can
say something to me that makes me think.
