I lived on a ship last winter. It was a lot like purgatory, but looked like a shopping mall.
I somehow end up in newspapers and on the news a lot. All for good things. A number of times it was, technically, for breaking and entering, but, that was because I was the house musician for a completely illegal speakeasy built inside of a water tower atop an abandoned building in Chelsea. It got a lot of amazing press and some very interesting and/or high profile guests. Those were some of my favorite times in my life.
I´m a lot of fun, or so I´m told...People tell me I seem like I drunkenly stumbled out of a cartoon time machine.
I was off the grid (on paper) for a long time. No ID, no birth certificate, and no passport. It was interesting going through what I called a beaurocratic existential dilemma. I existed. I just didn't know how to prove it. Chew on that one, modern philosophers.
Despite that I haven't traveled much, I've lead a more interesting life than most people I know. I can tell you 3 stories from one night that are all more interesting than the time your friend went backpacking in europe for 3 months.
I once accidentally saved multiple people's lives, no joke. Ask me about it after a few drinks, it's a great story.
I'm jealous that this generation of nerds has badasses like Jillian Holtzman, and when I was a young nerd, all I had was awkward Egon Spengler.
Enough about me, tell me about you for once...
Tell me something inappropriate...
I've played theremin for 10 years... That's a lot of fun.
Medium term plans include: learning trumpet, engineering a puppet, learning about solenoid robots, writing 2 musicals, learning spanish
"What's in that giant bag? Is that a typewriter on your back??"
Also I fairly often get recognized from people who saw me playing accordion in that Banksy piece, and this weird sports commercial, oh, and playing for change in the subway.
If you have pets of any sort that are awesome, and especially if you have pet rats. But any pets will do.
If you want to share some bourbon and get in trouble somewhere
If you're a performer or artist and want to talk shop and/or collaborate.
You want to meet and connect as people, not as an end goal or a concept.
