i have pulled up stakes and left the west coast and points between after 13 years [give or take], and, for the first time, turned east - as i'd pretty much run outta real estate.
as such, i am effectively new in town!
also, as has been apparent, i don't like capitalization.
but i suppose what i am actually "doing" with my life is constantly taking shape. i have a lot of goals, but who doesn't? i guess i see one's lifepath/station/career as an organism - adapting and evolving. i suppose the most awesome outcome of said evolution would take the form of being paid to write and/or make people laugh.
i often wear a headband (as i generally keep my hair a bit long just above the shoulder) for utility, and have gotten many comments on them (being the various headbands) - and, no, it's not ironic. i wear them to keep my hair out of my face and i think they look cool.
legs. (if not obscured by long pants)
awesome calves (ibid)
i suppose that's it. i could go into non-superficial stuff, but that seems to be the bent of this entry.
blood meridian, the road (i guess most cormac mccarthy)
world war Z, infinite jest, the girl with curious hair, revenge of the lawn, as i lay dying, consider the lobster, a supposedly fun thing i'll never do again (actually anything by david foster wallace, his death was black armband territory for me), horror anthologies - the cheesier the better, lord of the rings, how to talk dirty and influence people, underworld... i'll stop now.
waiting for guffman, zombieland, the whole george romero canon, the departed, the road, this is spinal tap, UHF, caddyshack, ghostbusters, princess mononoke, the goonies, adventureland, the 40 year old virgin.
modest mouse (especially older stuff), beck (first 3 albums changed my life), minutemen, fear, townes van zandt, gillian welch, dolly parton, porter wagoner, smashing pumpkins (a lot of 90's buzz bin stuff - call it a guilty pleasure), silver jews, will oldham, pavement, ween, lil wayne, johnny cash, john wayne and the texas funeral, the trophymen, 84 nash, calexico, iron and wine, royal trux, velvet underground, 13th floor elevators/roky erikson, the pixies, the dead milkmen and the dead kennedys, rolling stones, bob dylan, and a whole bunch i'm not thinking of.
i'll keep this one short and just give one interesting food fact. i do, truthfully, enjoy eating unadulterated, unsauced, plain raw broccoli. fact.
comedy (both as consumer and provider)
a wide variety of beverages - both non-alcoholic and otherwise.
the feeling leading up to traveling (for pleasure not work)/ the sensation upon arrival.
