My self-summary
My name is Alex and I don't really know what to write about myself. Identity is a strange vanity. I am who I am. I am what is. I am these bones and cancerous lungs and spit and sweat and blood. I am a few notes on a fretboard, on a keyboard, on the staff. I am a smile. I am a tear.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently enrolled at NBSS on my way towards becoming a piano technician and rebuilder. In my spare time I play guitar, piano, watch movies, read, ride bikes, play with dogs, cats, rats, or drink beer and share my time with dear friends (could use more of these friend things).
I’m really good at
Cooking eggs. I love to play music with just about anyone if I'm not busy. I like to think I'm good at singing but it's really subjective.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair and my beard (when it's there). I am loud, very loud, and I like to talk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Albert Camus - The Stranger, Kerouac, The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe, Invisible Man by Ellison, Brave New World, Blood Meridian & All The Pretty Horses by Cormack McCarthy, Cities of the red night by William Burroughs. I'm trying to read V by Thomas Pynchon for like the millionth time. It's really complicated and I fail every time.

Movies... Birdman, Children of Men, Dark City, Bladerunner, and all around good Sci-Fi. the Fullmetal Alchemist movie was good, City of Lost Children and anything by Jean Paul Jeunet really, pretty much anything Spielberg, This Is the End had me in stitches, The Entire ALIEN franchise, Crash, Whiskey Hotel Foxtrot, The Matrix, The X-Files movies, LOTR (out of nostalgia), Star Trek(s) and even JJ Abrams' Star Trek, The Cell, Ghost in the Shell 1 and 2, Akira, Princess Mononoke, I like alot of different stuff really, but I do love sci-fi. the list goes on.....

Shows: Mr. Robot, Rick and Morty, Silicon Valley, Fullmetal Alchemist, X-Files, Arrested Development, Louie, Samurai Champloo, Afro Samurai, Mushi-shi, Beavis and Butt head, Daria, Metalocalypse....

I generally don't like hyper-produced music, its gotta get a lil' dirty for me but there are some exceptions I'm pretty open minded.

Foods - all breakfast foods, pistachios, bacon, eggz eggz eggz, SUSHI!!!!!!!
The six things I could never do without
Love, Chocolate, Music and Sound in general, my cat Yin, Positivity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Myself and my personal relationships. Pianos. Music. Cooking. The universe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to shows or on bike rides. Or getting hammered watching commando with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dunno, I'm an open book.
You should message me if
You think life is good and meant for living.

You want to beat the shit out of Brock Turner.

You want a compassionate friend who cares.

You are patient.
