My self-summary
Sigh. Well, I was born, you know, and that was pretty difficult. Luckily my family is pretty cool and they helped me in my transition to appreciating the outside world, which I do quite a bit now. Photography is my gig these days, video my new passion.
What I’m doing with my life
Ive been in school off-and-on for as long as I can remember cuz I likes me some learnin'. I'm looking for people to play music and dance and be weird with me until the poverty of it all becomes too crushing and I go back for a master's. Also there is of course the distinct possibility that socializing, being weird and playing music will suddenly become highly lucrative. Which is to say I'm trying to finagle my way into the festival circuit and become a traveling circus person. Which is actually sort of true.

EDIT: All of the above happened since I wrote that, more or less, and now my partner and are looking for intimate friends.
I’m really good at
Dancing. Not like pro status, but I will dance off what little there is left of my ass at a show. Or at work. Or wherever.

Spending too much money on food and drink, whether it be indulging in a new restaurant experience or going wacky at Rainbow Market and making myself food for the next few days. I will eat most anything, but am particularly fond of Indian, Thai, and breakfast foods. More pragmatically speaking, though, I would truly have perished if it were not for Mexican, which used to mean burritos but then I stopped eating gluten so now it's dinner plates and tacos.

I give a damn good massage.

I am patient, understanding and nonjudgmental, but also give people a lot of shit. It's okay, though, I can take it as well.

I'm REALLY good at laughing loudly enough to upset my friends' roommates as we stumble in late at night or while we're watching something that is funny on any level. Laughing is my coping mechanism and I feel all situations are appropriate for some sort of laughter.

Which reminds me, I am often vulgar, politically incorrect and offensive to those who just don't get it.

I've been told I'm pretty good at playing guitar and singing but I'm perpetually under-practiced so I won't say more about that.

I'm great at finding beauty everywhere and being in love with the world, including when I find hilarity in my own self-destruction.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am known for my varying styles of facial hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite author is Tom Robbins, most recent fiction was Michael Chabon. I read a fair amount of nonfiction: recently Robert Reich and Bill Bryson. Currently trying to hatchet through Jared Diamond's terrible style in order to glean some interesting tidbits from Guns, Germs and Steel. I don't read enough books I would say. I like to read local rags like the Guardian and try to keep up with local issues.

Haven't had much time for TV lately but when I do it's Master of None (esp. season 2), Game of Thrones, High Maintenance, John Oliver ad the like

Movies? This list is too hard because my memory is terrible. I like weird indie flicks, like Wristcutters and Waking Life. Finally just finished Donny Darko and it was incredible. I like weird epics like Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and Wings of Desire. I tend toward the arty and off-kilter but also Up made me cry a little bit. I took a film class at Berkeley that opened me up to a lot, but I haven't seen nearly enough of the classics so if you wanna watch some old movies...

And then there was Music, Oy. I used to be a snob and then I got over it. If you want we can argue over the viability of genres; I am happy to but here's a highly abstracted list in terms of my arbitrary blah blah--will probably add to it as I think of names:

Classics: Beatles, Zeppelin, Zappa, Velvet Underground, Bowie, Nina Simone, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Neil Young, Harry Nilsson, Paul Simon, Bill Withers, Pink Floyd...

Blues: old delta stuff like R.L. Burnside, Howling Wolf, etc.

Jazz: Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Brad Mehldau, Mile Davis...

EDM (I go to a lot of shows in this vein because I love dancing): Fake Blood, Jack Beats, my homies AndDrop!, Simian Mobile Disco, Boys Noize, Afro Jack, Four Tet, SBTRKT, MSTRKRFT...

Pop: Beyonce, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake,

Hip Hop: People Under the Stairs, Das Racist, The Coup, Diggable Planets, but aside from the "underground" shit I once saw Snoop and Dre at Coachella and it melted my brain.

Indie (what I most actively listen to): Radiohead, radiohead, radiohead, Tame Impala, Alt-J, Ty Segall, St. Vincent, Tune-Yards, Bon Iver, LCD Soundsystem, Mark Ronsan, Simian (pre-Mobile Disco), Grizzly Bear, DJ Shadow, Sigur Rós, Deerhunter, Ratatat, Sufjan Stevens, Rufus Wainwright, Hercules and Love Affair, CocoRosie, TV on the Radio, Fiona Apple, Stereolab, Fleet Foxes, Andrew Bird, Amon Tobin, Fiery Furnaces, !!!, Little Dragon...
Six things I could never do without
Music festivals
Human touch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Human nature, photography, food, music, sexuality
On a typical Friday night I am
a gazelle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Privacy is lost when put on display for the okc community, yes? This question is thus moot.
You should message me if
you have no shame.
The two of us
