Also, my photos are outdated, so I am working on getting new ones posted. I basically have a mohawk (funny story behind that).
Just as life is, I am a complex, multidimensional and constantly changing enigmatic anomaly. Life, myself, and this profile are equally subject to the only constant in life: change. Look forward to these changes in the near future, both gradually and eventually en-mass as I reinvent myself <3
My love in life is music, art, people, and self-awareness. I am a multi-instrumentalist. I play whatever music I can with whomever I can in order to find those special people who are my musical soul mates. I play flute through my effects box...FUZZY FLUTE MUFF! Noodle on guitar, bass, mando, keys, banjo, viola...whatever I can get my fingers on. I can play any instrument at varying levels of proficiency, regardless of my experience with each given instrument. I love to sing and am finding my voice all over again for the first time :p Have a project you need some sound on? Hit me up!
Connecting with kindred spirits, exploring the perspectives of others concerning the meaning of life, art, love, laughter and happiness. Mainly music is what I am living for because it's the only thing that keeps me consistently happy, challenged, amused, frustrated and excited and in total love and awe on a daily basis. It is my passion, the thing that lights up my life.
I adore dogs and cats equally and am always down for kitty/doggy animal quality time (even human ones). I love making people good foods. I grew up in a small coast town as a restaurant kid. I've spun pizzas and I love making and drinking coffee & tea. I used to hambone as a kid, but growing tits makes that a bit more difficult. My friends are my family and every day I am working on making my family my friends. I love crafts and never have enough time/space to do them all. Sometimes I juggle when I'm fidgety or feeling silly. I love to travel and used to live on the road and in the woods. Often the stillness of nature is the only thing I can relate to. Amazing moments are when my fingers and toes are appreciating the beauty around me. I've been to and through 32 states, but the NW is the most kind in people, brew & trees :)
I am Complex, Simple, and Laughing About It ~*~ Never Be Sorry, Be Silly.
Digging in my roots while uprooting myself, focusing on improving myself on all levels, loving people, playing music, speaking my soul and enjoying life during this amazing time of change.
I used to be the drummer, singer and modulated flute player in a local alternative, electronic progressive math rock band called The Mercury Tree, still playing locally near you with an amazing lineup. Check them out if you dig Prog. Or just check them out anyways.
*I love running my flute through my vampire effects amp head, singing, hand drumming, messing around on guitar, saxophone or any woodwind I can get my hands on, and just generally making music as much as possible. It's one of the most enjoyable & hardest things I've ever done in my life...the rewards are priceless.
Hanging out with my close friends. Making delicious foods. Eating said delicious foods with close friends and random acquaintances (and sometimes strangers whom are hungry). Listening to musics. Wearing warm yummy socks. My super power is gullibility, as I am a very trusting, yet intelligent, person. I also have been known to be "State the Obvious Girl". Superpowers are way cool.
*Being open minded with a healthy serving of idealism, cynicism and realism while trusting my intuitions.. I don't consider myself part of the flock and have always been a bit of a black sheep in my family, in a good way.
*Petting people's doggies when I pass them on the street makes me giggle and smile from ear to ear. I revel in random doggy love. Yeah, you read that.
*Reacquainting myself with my mending heart. Being emotionally available while balancing emotional vulnerability due to being over trusting, but it's all good. Being lazy and relaxing & an equally productive energetic dreamer. Rambling on about random tangents. I love to research and gather information. I really believe that the day you stop learning is the day you start to die. Finding new ways to make rice amazing. Drooling over music equipment. Drooling over music. Killing it on a daily basis. Taking care of people when they are sick/hurt. Avoiding things. Not avoiding things and attacking my priorities with gusto.
I'm all or nothing, and everything in between.
Did I mention music...?
Listening. Talking. Sharing. Laughing. Helping out. Making you smile. Knowing obscure random things. Being resourceful as all get out. Having a tough shell. Having an equally soft shell. Giving love to the critters. Being gullible & equally cynical. Smiling. Being happy sitting in the grass in the sun. Being so loyal it hurts. Making social situations odd when I don't pick up on those oh-so-subtle social cues. Saying odd, pun like jokes that few actually pick up on. Being a geek. Being indecisive. Figuring myself out. LOVE. Sharing the awesomeness that can be found in life with people who REALLY care. Writing. Over analyzing everything and yet under analyzing them as well. Being the best navigator on a cross country road trip.
Psychically communicating with kindred spirits through eye-window gazes.
Books: I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy when I was younger, and I have been picking through an autobiography by Frank Zappa at work and recently was skimming Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Nietchzie, The Blue Adept by Piers Anthony, and I just read Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, I adored the Dune series when I was a kid, Under the Banner of Heaven is an interesting read and The People's History of the United States of America is a bit of a tough undertaking although it proves to be an intriguing read for me every time I pick it up. I can't stay focused on that book for some reason. David Sedaris is hilarious, and I really want to get into House of Leaves. I like other things and tend to pick up and put down books easily. I'm always looking for suggestions.
Music (a shaky shakedown in no order): Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Battles, Tool, The Mercury Program, Belly, Depeche Mode, Gregorian and Tibetan Chants, Ravi Shankar, Ani Difranco, Frank Zappa, Tom Waits, Steely Dan, Akai, Beastie Boys, Mercury Program, Elliot Smith, The Doors, The Mercury Tree, Meshuggah, Beck, Ben Harper, Moses Smell The Roses/Bearcubbi'/Jezebel Spirit/Bro Fam Collective, Mastadon, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Sky Cries Mary, Johnny Cash, Suzanne Vega, Tool, Rusted Root, Nickel Creek, Electric Light Orchestra, Blondie, Tower of Power, MGMT, Jamiroquai, Evanescence, Rasputina, Cat Stevens, Blue Man Group, Alanis Morsette, Veruca Salt, Led Zeppelin, Bucket Head, John Mayer, Fat Boy Slim, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, NOFX, Ben Folds Five, Sleater Kinney, The Eels, Cake, Chemical Brothers, Phil and the Microphones, Old Time Relijun, CSNY, Dave Matthews, Blue Man Group, Polka (yes, seriously) Enya, Celtic Jigs and Shanties (no, really), Gentle Giant, Delerium, Animal Collective, Autolux, Pj Harvy, Sonic Youth, Built to Spill, Bjork, Suzanne Vega, Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Jezebel Spirit, QOTSA, TVOTR, The Beatles, Bearcubbin'!, Cat Power, PJ Harvey, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, Beck, Ween, Moby, Massive Attack, Portishead, Belly, NIN, Boards of Canada, Orbital, The Books, Genesis, The Decemberists Queen, Isis, Stereolab, Serg Gainsberg, Radiohead, MGMT, Battles, Black Moth Super Rainbow, APC, Joni Mitchell, NIN, Phish, Portishead, Tori Amos, Weezer, Billie Holiday, XTC, Bjork, Infected Mushroom, most any down home Bluegrass & lots of jam bands like Greatful Dead, STI, Yonder Mountian String Band, Yes, Doc Watson, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, The White Stripes, Aphex Twin, George Gershwin, Mazzy Star, Morphine, Hill Stomp, Soul Coughing, anything with a Latin beat...I also do like metal, but none are really listed because I've only been getting exposed to more metal over the past couple of years and I am HORRIBLE at remembering band & album names.
Also, there is so much more music I love and listen to and can't even begin to list or my fingers would get tired :p
Movies: Also no particular order: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Harold and Maud, Benny and Joon, Shawshenk Redemption, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Spinal Tap, Amelie, Legend, Snatch, Twin Town, Monty Python, Fight Club, Waking Life. I am terrible at remembering names of movies, but I love comedy, good horrors, psychological thrillers, foreign films, many indie movies, and I am always up for something new. I have been kind of removed from mainstream society without having a television, so I don't know a lot of what is out there. I am always looking to be exposed to something new!
Food: I like it. I am not really picky and tend to describe myself as an opportunivore when it comes to food, though I am getting better at listening to what my body needs, not what my tastebuds want ;). I would preferably be eating fresh cooked meals with lots of veggies and yummy sauteed things such as onions, mushrooms and chicken everyday. I like thai, chinese, mexican and italian foods. Sushi is bliss and makes one glow for up to 48 hours after consuming. I love a good burger or a nicely done slab of salmon/sturgeon/tuna. Coffee and tea are bringers of life.
*A higher sense of purpose in Life
*A way to make and listen to Music
*Friends and loved ones to share my life with
*Laughtering at this thing we do called Life
*Good foods & drink.
Brought to you today by the number 7.
I have spent some long-term living in the woods, and have therefore deduced that I would make an excellent partner either during a nuclear war, zombie mutant virus out-break or some other such catastrophe.
I also think about:
Vintage things (cars/bikes, musical equipment, art)
Creating in Life
Basking in the afterglow of doing something with love
Going on walks and hikes
Cooking and enjoying good food
Friends and Loyalty
The simple things in life (I stop to smell the roses)
As well as the complex
Lots of coffee and tea
Good books and movies
Living my fantasies
Or enjoying them in my mind
Working towards my passions
Realizing my own potential and taking advantage of it
Cuddling, loving, laughing
Campfires/fire pits...as many as possible as the smell of woodsmoke is intoxicating to me.
Owning the awesomeness that is me and loving myself FULLY. Re-arranging my heart, mind and soul has been enlightening, and a healthy challenge. Starting a new chapter in this game of life.
