My self-summary
My name is Jacob, and I'm not sure where to begin? Well I'll start with the thing most important to me. I'm an anarchist and a traveler (what some might call "a dirty hippie" or "crusty punk"). And yes, my political leaning is extremely important to me, however I'm not a close-minded asshole and I have no problem with people disagreeing with me, as long as they actually have an argument or some facts to go off. Debates/heated discussions can be fun as long as no one gets too pissed over them. As far as religion goes for a long time I considered myself agnostic but over the last few years I've sort of formed my own spirituality, a key component of which is the use of entheogens. My beliefs have something to do with all things having undying souls, that we keep reincarnating up until we're finally ready to become one with eternity. Oh, and god is love. Yes, I believe any drug can be used to help an individual learn something about themselves or the universe. Of course, more often they're simply abused and some drugs are clearly more effectively used for growth than others. My favorites would definitely be LSD, Psilocybin, MDMA, Ketamine and, of course, Marijuana. Anyway, my half-assed spirituality is probably mighty boring or sounding like an excuse to justify drug-use so I'll move on.

I really like to travel. To be on the move, to experience as much as I can in this short time on earth. To me life is all about our experiences. Good or bad, painful or pleasant; experience is what life is all about. And stagnating isn't conducive to it. So I finally packed in the car and job and headed out.

Yes, I'm a traveler. I hitch-hike around the country, holding no job and seeing and meeting all I can. I live off of wits and generosity and so far (I started about in february 2010) I've had nothing but glowing experiences. Doing this gave me a lot of hope and faith not only in myself and my fellow man, but also in the universe. I find it truly does provide everything you need, and so much of our lives are affected/created by ourselves. Put out negativity and you'll have a negative time. Be a happy, positive and loving person and that's what you'll get back.

I am polyamorous, a cuddleslut and a traveler
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
Thinking. Being creative in my head but being unable to transfer it to any media. It's incredibly frustrating.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair maybe? Or eyes? I don't know, maybe how skinny I am? It's honestly never come up in a conversation, so I have no clue. If we meet you can tell me. I did once receive a compliment on my eyes, so I guess they're winning.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A: Anything by Irvine Welsh, I adore him. A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle was probably one of the more important books i've read in my life. Most things by Bernard Cornwell, Robert Heinlein, Anything by Micheal Crichton, Oscar Wilde, The North and South trilogy by John Jakes, any good post-apocalyptic stories like Lucifer's Hammer and The Postman. Pretty much anything by Hunter Thompson, he's so cool. Oh, The Monkey Wrench Gang by Edward Abbey and while we're on the same track, Carl Hiassen. Noam Chomsky makes the list, of course. Pretty much anything on sociology/psychology/politics/philosophy. A good deal of other stuff as I love reading, but those are the top. Oh, and I read a lot of table-top RPG rulebooks. I love role-playin'.

B: I like a lot of movies, but let's see... Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Trainspotting, Waking Life, Requiem for a Dream, Dazed and Confused, Reservoir Dogs, The Devil's Rejects, Lord of War, Menace 2 Society, Children of Men, Fight Club, Blood Diamond, 1408, Session 9, Silent Hill, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Braveheart, The Crow, Dawn of the Dead (2004), 28 Days Later, Boondock Saints, Serenity; and by extension Firefly (even though it's a TV show). I don't care, Firefly is just awesome. Those are all I can think of for now, but rest assured that there are more.

C: I absolutely love music, I can't imagine what life would be like without it. I appreciate all forms of music, some just don't do it for me. Some of my favorite bands are: Incubus, Leftover Crack, Menomena, Built to Spill, Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution, Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Tegan & Sara, Blues Traveler. Cross Canadian Ragweed, Blue Mountain, Led Zeppelin, Mojo Nixon, Sublime, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Kimya Dawson, Fatboy Slim Blue Oyster Cult, Paramore, The Russian Red Army Choir (Hey, that's the most bitchin' national anthem ever), Drive-by Truckers, Travis, Minus the Bear, [Eminem]], Modest Mouse, Dave Matthews Band, Black 47, Seven Nations, The Prodigals, Pink Floyd, moe., The Grateful Dead, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Bree Sharp, At the Drive-In, The Kinks, The Ramones, Neil Young, The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Fallout Boy, Eve 6, The Gin Blossoms, Soundgarden, 311, Immortal Technique, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Audioslave, Mos Def, Tool, The Gorillaz, Dexter Freebish. I better leave it at that, if you're curious about any other bands ask, I know I only scratched the surface.

D: Foods, eh? Pasta, Beef (in most of it's forms), French Fries, Barbecue (especially baby-back ribs), Macaroni and Cheese, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Peanut Butter and Fluff. I guess you couldn't really call me a gourmet. As for drinks: Dr Pepper (in the old can, this new one sucks), Root Beer, Key Lime Soda, Vanilla Cola, Snapple, Milk and Milkshakes. I guess that wraps that up.
*NOTE: although i'm leaving the meats up there because i still would enjoy them, i am now more-or-less a vegetarian.*

Wait one damned minute, where's the games? okay new category, (E) Games *NOTE: because this section is so long I will leave it up, but it's worth pointing out that video games are not nearly as much a part of my life anymore*

E: Fallout 2. Hands down the best game ever. Morrowind, nothing beats being a vicious Khajiit abolishionist with a drug problem; especially with the Bloodmoon expansion installed. Mercenaries, it's a really good game that most people I meet don't seem to appreciate. Civilization 4, Primal Prey is a really fun old, budget title. Red Alert 2, that's still my favorite RTS of all time. 1602/1503, I lump them together since, to me, they're the same exact game with a graphics update. Half Life, I would say Half Life 2 but compared to the first one it was way too short. Worms 2, This is just a classic must-have for every even half-serious gamers library. Battlefield 2. Sadly, I can't run it, but i've played it extensively. Keep your eyes open for 'TheProphetEzekiel', i'll probably be a medic. Moving on, Grand Theft Auto (series), Resident Evil (series), excluding 4. I know, shock, gasp, sinner or whatever else you're saying. It was a decent enough game, although a bit repetitive, the problem was it didn't feel like Resident Evil. I don't just mean the lack of zombies or the heavy action, it was something else. Something I can't place. To be honest though, the lack of Umbrella, zombies, story and a cool leading character didn't help. I hate Leon, I have since I first saw the prick in RE2. I don't know why, but I just really want to punch him in the face. Then again, I liked Ada and Sherry in RE2 so maybe it's just me. Age of Wonders, those are awesome games. Sid Meier's Antietam, that's one of the best games i've ever played. That man can just do games right. So can Will Wright, I love the sim games, although my favorite is The Sims 2. SWAT 3, It was such a good game and there was so much to do with all the additional content. TimeSplitters, That whole series rocked hardcore. I think it's the best game for multiplayer ever. I'm talking splitscreen as I never did get into online gaming with consoles, it's just not for me. And yes, I think it blows Halo out of the water. Halo stands beside the Final Fantasy games as the most over-rated rubbish ever. I thought Gun was a really good game from guys who, as far as I knew, only ever thought about Tony Hawk. I think The Old West is an awesome setting for games that needs to be more fully explored. Katamari Damacy, not the sequel though. Why not the sequel? The music. The music in We Love Katamari sucked ass. That's what made the first game, the music. Go ahead, try playing it with the sound off, it'll suck. I liked Everblue 2 also. I rented it once and fell in love, it was such a nice change of pace. I haven't found a copy yet, but will. Since all this old crap was written I've acquired a 360 so here are a few others: Call of Duty 4, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Mercenaries 2. I think I could keep going for days about video games so i'll switch gears to table-top games. I like most board games, put one in front of me, show me how to play and i'm up for it with zeal. Some of my favorites are Settlers of Catan, Guillotine, Zombies!!!, Apples to Apples, Acquire, Life, Clue (don't knock the classics), Stratego, Risk, Axis and Allies. I'd love to play Werewolf (it goes by many names, I believe Mafia is one of them as well) but I can never get a big enough group of willing players together. Moving on to PnP RPG's. I'll try any of them, but I tend to dislike medieval settings, whether fantasy or mundane. I'll play them but i'd prefer anything else. My favorite settings are modern and post-apocalyptic. My favorite systems are d20 (as seen in d20 Modern, not D&D) and Unisystem (like in All Flesh Must be Eaten). To be fair though I haven't tried many others, I would though. I like White-Wolf games, well mostly Werewolf and Vampire are the only two that caught my eye, but they rock.
Six things I could never do without
1) Love. Simple, love is soul food. You starve without food and you starve in a different way without love. I need both to love and be loved, but I think especially to love.

2) Music. I can't imagine a life without music to listen to.

3) Summer. Perhaps this is just because the summers of 2004-2006 were the best times of my life but summer is in my mind the epitome of all that is fun and good about life. Conversely, I can't stand winter. It's fun for a month or so but beyond that it's miserable.

4) Autumn in New England. I say New England since that's where I lived most of my life, but any other place with an awesome autumn might work; maybe not though. I just loved the fall. It was so beautiful. The temperature was just right, between 60 and 70 degrees, I'd disappear into the woods for great lengths of time. I could get lost in there forever and i'd be okay with it. Well, not really, as I would be without the first two items on this list. And actually, I prefer daytime during this season. But you get what I mean. Or not. Meh, whatever.

5) Friends. I'm mostly a loner, but when it comes to really good friends that's a whole diffrent story. I don't think i've ever missed anything quite like I miss home. I love my close friends more than my family. But I don't have many. I take forever to open up and really like people, for the most part I just have associates.

6) Freedom. I mean true freedom, the freedom you only get through complete anarchy. Even here, in "The Land of the Free" I feel like a slave. What freedoms do we really have? Uh oh, I'd better pull this back from the brink of angry political rant. I yearn for true freedom. And since I made this profile a few years ago that dream seems more and more plausible. I have a feeling the USA at the very least, if not the west or world in general, will be facing dramatic probably violent periods of change in the not too distant future.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love. Social change, human nature, current events. And, as of 2010, spirituality and soul.
On a typical Friday night I am
Role-Playing in Toodles basement, tagging, or ingesting some psychoactive substance with some other friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing more than what I've already said. If there's something else you wanna know ask and I'll probably tell you.
You should message me if
If you find me interesting I think would be a place to start. If you wanna hop freight trains you should definitely contact me. Or if you're just interested in traveling/traveler stories. Or if you simply feel like it. I'm a bit too shy to message any strangers (sad right?), unfortunately, so anyone should feel free to drop me a message. Worst thing that could happen is we don't get on and you never hear from me again, right?
The two of us
