I'd like to maybe travel the country in a vehicle (house) and live off my music one day. Or find a nice little self sufficient community to stay on. Alternative lifestyles interest me. I hope to travel abroad, perhaps through a farming program. I intend to go back to school one day too, though it will be for my own edification rather than an investment.
Trying to keep up with the material I have and generate new songs. Looking for other musicians to work with. Poets especially.
Proofreading after I hit "send."
Unknowingly saying things with a sexualized double meaning like Tobias in Arrested Development.
Select artists of every genre, but a picky listener no less. Been getting into compilations of psychedelic/funk from South America and Africa lately, particularly Peru, Brazil, and Nigeria. Also recently discovered a lot of kick-ass psychedelic/jazz on the USSR state label. I like a lot of international music.

Movies and Shows
I love older movies, especially 60's and 70's era
Star Wars, Kung Pow, Satyricon, Ghost in the Shell shows and movies (although not as big of a fan of the "Arise" series), Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Pi, El Abrazo De La Serpiente, There Will Be Blood, Blue Velvet, Eraserhead, Twin Peaks, The Mother Fucking Cosmos with Carl Mother Fucking Sagan, Game of Thrones (aka fantasy incest torture porn) Penn and Teller's Bullshit, Daily Show and Colbert, An Idiot Abroad, Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Dune (even in all of it's Cheese). Some movies are so terrible I love them.
True Hallucinations, The Archaic Revival,
Food of the Gods, all by Terence McKenna. Gotta take it with a grain of salt though.
Phantoms in the Brain
The Tell-Tale Brain
Carl Jung's anything
World of Mythology
The Cosmic Serpent
A Short History of Nearly Everything
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The Spirit Molecule
I have the biggest boner for Plato. Parmenides is my favorite work though I'm not sure if I comprehend a good portion of it.
Tea, coffee (though I try to limit my consumption), pizza, the local Asian cuisine (especially Thai and Bánh Mì sandwichs), po-boys (shame on you for not knowing what that is), raw spinach, pescatarian stuff (update: CHEATER I'M A DIRTY CHEATER). My sweet tooth will likely bury me one day. Trying to eat a little healthier.

Crazy shit I've experienced through experimentation and the crazy shit to come.
My cartoonish understanding of theoretical physics. Mmm, chaos theory.
Dreams and time.
Living in the wild.
Undecided political issues that normal people have very deeply rooted opinions on.
I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist. But I mean, Iran-Contra, operation Gladio, operation Northwoods; I'm no loose change nut. The CIA is still very likely selling drugs to fund illegal paramilitary operations under the nose of congress, and virtually nobody in Washington could give a solitary fuck.
Why OKCupid assumes if you only drink on occasion that means you must drink socially. Where is the "occasionally, alone, crying in a dark room" selection?
My circadian rhythm is a white person attempting to clap along on a 1 and 3.
Many of my viewpoints and interests correspond with people who are considered to be hippies. I'm no rock worshiping anti-vaccination type, though. I am a hardcore skeptic, and cling to scientific rationalism (despite knowing that today's scientific rationalism will be tomorrow's sheep herder stories).
I have emotional baggage. Just a little fucked in the head to be honest.
Contain knowledge you think would help me on my journey.
Want to jam with somebody.
Want to take a canoe down a nearby river sometime.
Don't think owning a car is a requirement of adulthood.
