My self-summary
"We are the aperture through which the universe views itself." - Alan Watts

"I think we're all a bunch of weirdos on a quest to belong. Our songs of echolocation up in impregnable fog." -Aesop Rock

I've decided that it's pretty much impossible to stand out in any way by telling you that I'm laid-back, down to earth, honest, blah, blah, blah. How many times have you heard that? I have instead opted to tell you a few very random facts about myself. Hopefully, I can attract your brain before the rest of you knows what's really happening.

-> I was born on Friday the 13th in October... And my name is Jason.

-> Your pet will quickly deem me one of their favorite people. Animals love me, so don't be jealous.

-> I am supremely amused by anything that makes me feel disproportionately big or small. An ultimate example of this would be to carve ten tiny wooden pins from matchsticks and go bowling with rollie-pollies... Or to rip a solo on one of those giant guitars downtown.

-> I am probably the most coordinated clutz you will ever meet.

-> I only have one and one half kidneys and a super sweet scar.

-> I gain a small but definite amount of dexterity and coordination if I hold my tongue juuuuust so.
What I’m doing with my life
Living, breathing, eating, drinking, interacting, succeeding, failing, learning, wishing, wondering, doubting, laughing, crying, loving, playing, creating and appreciating the ability to do so every day. The winding road of life has its pitfalls and victories(some of which don't seem like it at the time). Alas, the adventure isn't in the destination. It's all about the journey...

I work for Collings guitars who is known for making, dare I say it, the best acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins and ukuleles in the world. Seriously, if you play any of the aforementioned instruments, go to our website. It's like instrument-porn. I have played guitar for half of my life so getting this job was a bit serendipitous. I also do work for a friend grinding, polishing and sharpening swords three days per week for extra cash. What is the value of getting paid to do something that you find interesting, challenging and fulfilling? You know what they say,"If you do something you love, you never work a day." I look at my job/s as something I get to do and not something I have to do. Few people are as lucky.
I’m really good at
I hate saying that I'm really good at anything other than spilling things, which appears to be my super power. I do have some skills that pay the bills, though...
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never really asked anybody that question, so I can't honestly say.

Space/time, astronomy, metaphysics, quantum physics, comics, anime, music, breakdancing, kung fu, tattoos, beer, food, sex, philosophy, parallel universes, ufos, the paranormal, cars, guns, swords, the true nature of reality and the role that we, as observers, play in its creation...
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering where I'm going to get more chloroform at 3:00 am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This isn't easy, so I'm just going to come right out and say it. I'm a former Axe-user. At the time, it didn't seem like that big of a deal. I knew lots of other people using so that made it easy to get hooked. It was only on a downtown excursion that opened my eyes. I had just parked my car and was going to use just a little. As soon as I got out of my car, people started to gasp and turn up their noses in disgust. It was at that point that I learned that my actions affect not only myself, but everyone around me. I immediately went home and cleaned up. I'm now proud to say that I've been Axe-free since 2007!
