My self-summary
A shiver is a group of sharks. Like a flock of seagulls of 80's synth pop bands, or a murder of crows, or a pod of whales.

I'm a beer swilling, ass kicking, boisterous, imaginative, straight razor shaving, song singing, comic book writing, never sleeping, droll as hell, Floridian expatriate gender less crypto-fag!

I'm always excited about stuff, and it's been described that I live life in all caps lock!
What I’m doing with my life
Professional punk rocker. Writing comics. Playing music. Thinking about sharks.
I’m really good at
Pop culture trivia, naming that band on the jukebox, making people not feel awful. Teaching people to whistle (I think. Like, I got it down theoretically).
The first things people usually notice about me
I look familiar. My loud, boisterous nature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to list! I'll probably get carried away.

Writers: Herman Melville, Marry Shelly/Wollstonecraft, Haruki Murakami, Gail Simone, George RR Martin, Anaïs Nin, Harlan Ellison

Movies: Jurassic Park, Star Wars (original Trilogy), Back to the Future trilogy, Godfather trilogy, Indiana Jones trilogy, 2001: A Space Oddyssey, Clue, The Blues Brothers. I like a lot of movies. I like dissecting movies.

Shows: Game of Thrones, Archer, The Twilight Zone, Red Dwarf, Doctor Who (kind of. Theoretically these days), Battlestar Galactica, The Venture Bros., Arrested Development

Music: So much goth rock! I was literally raised on goth rock. As in my sisters did most of the work raising me, and they were into goth rock. Too many bands to list! http://www.last.fm/user/johnnymidnite

Food: I love it! I'll eat most anything I'm not allergic to!
The six things I could never do without
-Music
-Halloween
-My adoptive family up here
-Movies
-Adventure
-Red button down shirts, apparently. Who would've guessed!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My bands
stories I'm writing
pop cultural dissection
deconstructing tropes often found in pop culture and how to reconstruct them, because what's the point of deconstructing something if you're not going to replace it with something better?
Not being ironic, or insincere.
Sharks. I really think sharks are fascinating, okay!? I love the ocean! I was almost a marine biology major in college!
On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing as typical! Though, I do seem to find myself at home more often than I'd like to these days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a hypochondriac.
You should message me if
You're fun to hang out with, and you wanna be bros.

You don't have a pocket full of spiders.

You wanna go catch a movie, then grab dinner/drinks, and talk about said movie.

Maybe let's go danging? (Because I typed this on my phone, this was supposed to say "dancing", but the typo was too good). But seriously, maybe let's go dancing?

You think bad jokes have the ability to be turned back into good jokes if you can explain them the right way.

You want to collaborate on musical projects. Like, for real, though. I'm almost always up for meeting musicians.
