My self-summary
I am the kind of guy that just goes for it. I don't usually plan things out. I guess you can call that spontaneous. I wouldn't call myself average although I try to stay fairly grounded.

I stay pretty busy. I work a lot of hours and I'm in two bands. I like punk rock quite a bit. Not just the music or the fashion, but the overall attitude of it gets me going. I'm a very DIY kind of person. I'm a minimalist.

ENFP for those of you who put weight in that fancy Briggs/Meyer thingy.
What I’m doing with my life
I make my living as a manager of a shop, and I do well with it. I just moved to Bethany with some cool roomies and their doom band that practices in the living room on the weekends. I'm a bass player in a couple of unrelated punk bands.

I just started running again and trying to get back into shape. I like to jog around the neighborhood and I'm trying to work my way up to hitting up the paths around Hefner Lake. It's been rough since my knees aren't all that great, stemming from an old military injury.
I’m really good at
I'm good at a number of things, but I'm also my own worst critic. I mentioned being a minimalist earlier, but I'm also a perfectionist. If I miss one note in a song while on stage, I will obsess over it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I'm a taco addict. I also like fried chicken. Lately it's been salads and sandwiches, because burritos and fried chicken put the pounds on me.

Movies: I'm a nerd. I watch nerdy movies, but rarely. I have a hard time watching them by myself. I'd honestly rather play a game.

Books: I just finished "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" which was a good read. I like the mid 20th century classics. I do a lot of blog reading and I'm a bit of a newshound as well.

TV: I watch Hulu and netflix mainly. I like animated shows quite a bit. I think Archer is my spirit guide. I watch sports sometimes when I'm bored on a Sunday.

Music: Ramones, The Beatles, Run DMC, Rolling Stones, Bowie, Elvis, Black Sabbath, Germs, Black Flag, Wipers, Bleak House, Public Enemy, (70s) Aerosmith, Soundgarden, L7, Bad Religion, Saxon, Parliament, James Brown, Sleep, Boris, Hank Williams III, Death, NWA, Slayer, Hendrix, Darkthrone, Electric Light Orchestra, Pentagram, Cock Sparrer, Johnny Thunders, Sex Pistols, James Taylor, Leftover Crack, Agent Orange, Dr Know, Cat Stevens, Ohio Players, Destruction, Kreator, Veruca Salt, Merciful Fate, The Ventures, Witchcraft, Van Halen, White Stripes, Dead Kennedys, Diamondhead, Blitzkrieg, Witchfinder General, Electric Wizard, Saint Vitus, Tigers of Pan Tang, Budgie, George Harrison, Michael Jackson, Sperm Birds, ill Repute, Beastie Boys, Pavement, Clutch, Helmet, Melvins, Kiss, Fugees, Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis, Joy Division, Buzzcocks, Tank, X, The Cars, Led Zeppelin
The six things I could never do without
My tools. I literally can't make a living without them, and that especially goes for my 3/8 swivel headed ratchet, electric impacts, BFH, and sockets.

A tuner and picks because I can't play out of tune and I use picks to play bass.

A pillow, blanket, and a fan blowing on me.

Money, because as idealistic as I can be, I still need money to do all of that cool shit I like to do.

Electricity. Getting back to nature is fun for a week or so, but I like all the things electricity can do for us.

Water. They say we are 75% water, so I guess that's pretty important too.

My cellphone, because I have to stay in contact with my corporate overlords.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I really have a dislike for all politicians. I'm starting to get annoyed by my super political friends on facebook/twitter. The topics don't bother me so much as the flamewars that arise from people who can't handle their shit in a debate.

Why the hell are Pizza Hut and McDonalds allowed to be Olympic sponsors? I'm not talking shit about burgers or pizza, but I really doubt that world class athletes eat at McDonalds enough to appreciate their sponsorship.

I really want to start a podcast, but I get crippling writer's block every time I attempt to write an outline for the first episode. I've been trying for 3 years.

First we have tornadoes, and now frackquakes? I need to get the hell outta here.

Maybe the 2012 Mayan apocalypse wasn't so much of a prediction as it was a recommendation.

Oklahoma City, while it does suck in most ways, is actually not a bad place to be an artist or a musician. You can actually survive here.
On a typical Friday night I am
I do shows at least once a month and that sometimes falls on a Friday. I work every Saturday, so I'm usually at home smoking crack and worshiping the devil.
You should message me if
Just be your awesome self. I don't like people who put up a front.

I'm not religious. At all. If you are a religious person, I will probably offend you in some way with my irreverence. Actually if you don't have a sense of humor, I will probably offend you. Nothing is off the table for me to have a laugh at.
