My self-summary
I'm a young hippie. I'm clever but careful, capable of but not prone to fiery displays of wit. Caring and considerate, I enjoy providing for Family and friends, secure in the conviction they will help me.

I am Gutter Nerd & Proud.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to affect some significant changes so that, in my next life, I might make it outta the solar system and see the galaxy. Of course, I'm trying to stay true to my morals and live as many awesome stories along the way as I can.
I’m really good at
Listening, talking, noticing, confusing (myself and others), and making bad jokes funny. Also, misplacing my face.

BAD JOKES ALL DAY! Seriously, I know all the bad jokes. I've got a bad joke for every occasion. I actually got a compliment the other day about this from someone I've known just over a year. He said to me, after I delivered a particularly bad joke, "Ya know, Pirate, your humor has just gotten worse, consistently, for a year. And that's really pretty impressive, as I didn't think you could do that. But the jokes, they just get worse and worse."

What did I say when they lit a forest fire on us? "Why do ducks have flat feet? For stamping out forest fires. Why do elephants have flat feet? For stamping out flaming ducks."

I even write bad jokes. Why wouldn't the sheep listen to their shepherd? Because they'd HERD it all before.

Oh yeh. That's punny.

Furthurmore, I'm pretty good at being subtle. Innuendo is my BITCH! I hate it when I'm trying to get people to notice I'm not being literally and have to wink at them something fierce to get them to realize that, when I say "book," I don't mean book. Daftness irritates the hell outta me, which I guess is sorta the mirror rule in effect, as I can be pretty daft sometimes.

I also enjoy multiple entendre. I think my current record is quadruple.

I'm also good at raising my voice in public places to sell or give stuff away. Sometimes, I think I shouldda been an 18th century crier.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dreads, my glasses, or my big bushy beard when I haven't shaved.

Honestly, though, I'm not really sure. Those're only a guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Neil Gaiman, Neil Stephenson, William Gibson, Phillip K. Dick, Mark Twain, some Shakespeare, Stephen King, and others.

Movies: Almost Famous, The Princess Bride, & A Scanner Darkly

Music: Anything live, but especially FURTHUR!
Seriously, everything from John Prine to John Hartford to Bob Dylan to Tom Petty to Led Zeppelin to The Grateful Dead to Op Ivy to RHCP to Dirty Pretty Things to Gogol Bordello to Willie Nelson to Primus to STS9 to Railroad Earth to Iron Maiden to Immortal Technique to The Violent Femmes to NoFX to That 1 Guy to Cake to Incubus to Sublime to Iron & Wine to The Drive-By Truckers to Norah Jones.

Food: The spicier the better, barring Mexican. Gimme some Thai or Indian, ideally. I really like curry.
Six things I could never do without
1) Family
2) Legs
3) Humor
4) Heady Dank Food
5) Caffeine
6) Dreaming
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain - I like to spend time visualizing how I store information. I like to think it improves my recall. Right now, it's a ship. This metaphor has actually been really useful in training my subconscious for various purposes, such as gathering my belongings before I leave a place. Sometimes this gives me headaches, though.

People's behavior - Though more afterwards than during. I also tend to daydream how potential situations might play out. Often, anymore, I find that the do play out in similar fashion to how I imagined them, and that my thinking on the subject allows me improved control. Law of Attraction much?

Love - So many kinds, so many people, so many things. "We were in love with the people that we hadn't even met. . ." - John Hartford

Language - I love and despise it. Word play is a ton of fun (see above regarding entendre, puns, etc), but it is also so very inadequate (which I suppose is where a lotta the humor comes from). I mean, people are entirely capable of having thoughts that can't be expressed in words..
On a typical Friday night I am
Hard to find. There's no one place I'll consistently be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know how to whistle.
You should message me if
there's something you wanna ask/tell me.

Also, if you wanna drop everything, run away, and join a hippie tribe. I'm kinda a guy for that.
The two of us
