I am, as Green Day said on their last good album, a walking contradiction, and the more I think about it, the more I enjoy the fact that even I'm incapable of really categorizing myself.
Nights that I'm not at work are usually spent going to a concert or relaxing at home with something to read. On my days off I like to travel and explore, assuming I've finished all my self-inflicted household chores. I
-Finding random things at the Farmer's Market and then Googling for recipes to use them in.
-Going on crazy adventures at the drop of a hat.
-Debating politics and policies with such passion that you'd almost think they might be acted upon.
-Finding the seediest dive bar with the best drink specials.
-Dancing to ska music while stopped at a red light.
I’m not a big TV person and I hate trying to watch something one week at a time. I usually wait until the season (or series) is over so I can buy a boxed set and binge on a good show. The only things I can’t miss are The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, Real Time, and Game of Thrones. I’m also way behind on The Walking Dead and try to catch Rock and Morty and Venture Brothers when I can.
Music? Hell, this should be its own section.
-Punk (NOFX, Bad Religion, The Dwarves, Anti-Flag, Lagwagon, Dropkick Murphys, Pennywise, Strung Out, Guttermouth)
-Ska (Mighty, Mighty Bosstones, Less Than Jake, Mustard Plug, The Toasters, Reel Big Fish)
-Hardcore (Rise Against, Boy Sets Fire, Alexisonfire, Thursday)
Rock (Alkaline Trio, Foo Fighters, Cake, The Thermals)
Random stuff like Tom Waits, Emile Autumn, The Yoshida Brothers, Florence and the Machine, The Black Mages
And I have hours of female-vocal bands (Nightwish, Evanescence, Epica, The Distillers, Picture Me Broken, Icon For Hire, Amaranthine, Lacuna Coil…)
If you're a fan of extremely silly and entertaining live bands, like Peelander-Z and The Aquabats, we can definitely be friends.
Recently it's more "bored online because I'm stuck at work" which I find offensive since my boss doesn't seem to realize I can accomplish that just fine somewhere else.
