My self-summary
I guess it's pretty well contained in "What I'm doing with my life". I currently live by myself on the south side of Austin. Everything else about me is mostly explained below.
Plz keep reading...
What I’m doing with my life
RIGHT NOW - 8 months into 2017
The world sure has changed since the last time I wrote a profile for myself, a little over a year ago. Hopefully I've grown and changed, too. I still like to occasionally go see a band or 3; but lately I've also been more actively engaged in some artistic pursuits. I've been making & editing various videos, and I just wrote an essay (about Guy Fawkes, by request) that will be published next month! Plus various other odd little art & writing projects.

I'm always trying to make myself a better person than I was the day before; but I also strive to be whatever help I can be to those around me, when it's wanted. For me, those are the best ways I've found to effectively make a positive change in the world. (I used to do social work, but too much can sometimes take it's toll, and wear you down). The long and short of it is - I'm doing whatever I can to make my life and the lives of others enjoyable and ridiculously fun, and at the same time, to find ways of alleviating some of the suffering in this world, if I'm able.

I'm also trying to meet new people.

Otherwise, I'm reading Lord Dunsany, Charles Dickens, Robert E Howard, Donald Westlake, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Michel Faber, Alan Moore, Howard Chaykin, or MR Carey.

Or I might be watching Twin Peaks, or an old B&W movie, or some sort of obscure British mini series. Maybe even Dark Shadows. (There's a Wilkie Collins adaptation later this year that looks pretty good.)

Hell, I could just be cleaning and dancing and singing my heart out. By the time you read this, who knows?
