My self-summary
Alright, alright. Hello there. I am back on OkC after taking a hiatus. I figure updating a couple years old information is necessary. haha.

So, my name is RJ. I'm just this anarcho-transhumanist kid, y'know? I study Computer Science and am currently belting out that degree. I'm hoping to get my Masters, but time will tell.. and dare I say a Doctorate? Hmmm.. lovely thought.

I try to stay current and knowledgeable. I feel -- as cliché as it may sound -- that life is too fucking short and too many people are needlessly dying for me to waste mine. I have a low expectations for governments and capitalism, but I struggle with finding and developing alternatives. That's not going to stop me trying..

I often find myself overwhelmed in life, but I'm not done fighting.

I don't trust people who don't drink.

whatever lesson it is I'm supposed to learn in all this shit, you'll be the first to know.
What I’m doing with my life
As above, working on the degree. During my off time: I try and soak up as much knowledge as I can by reading, writing, and taking shit apart..

I know this section is kind of lacking, but day to day changes. It's better just to talk this one out. ; )
I’m really good at
derailing trains with pennies.
counting the seconds from the jet roar to being airborne.
not dying in those seconds.
driving long distances.
getting sick off caffeine pills.

my cat told me I'm pretty awesome at belly scratching..
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm afraid you'd have to ask them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
such a small space for such importance..

well, then, for music: it's a wide selection, of which the best survey would, of course, be:
..which tells me my top bands are: The National, Matt Pond PA, Earlimart, Stars, Elliott Smith, Bomb the Music Industry, Carissa's Wierd, Iron and Wine, The Weakerthans, Kevin Devine, Destroyer, The Good Life, Death Cab for Cutie, The Elected, Straylight Run, and Radical Face, uhh, yeah.. I'm inclined to agree. (you win again, robots!)

I have a keen interest in the folk punk / riot folk genres as well: Defiance Ohio, Rosa, Wisdom Tooth, Blackbird Raum, Ryan Harvey, Devil Makes Three, Ghost Mice, This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Spook Rat, Aphid Ant Construction, MISCHIEF BREW!

basically, if you can stand this, we'll be off to a good start:

for books, it's just easier to ask what I am currently reading.. but, some favorite authors would be: Wilde, Isherwood, Bukowski, Fitzgerald, Hornby, and Matheson..

MOVIES?! so many, so little time.. I love so many and all in a wide array of genres.. from foreign art house to awesomely horrible b-movies, from extreme asian cinema to badass, albeit generic, action movies!

..yeah, it's cool..
The six things I could never do without
these many internets! ; )

...I'm pretty sure that's more than six..
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the parallels between the how the world works and how computers work, how that situation could have gone better, zen anarchy, that time I studied german is vienna, the future, and I have constantly one or more songs stuck in my head at any given point. fuck yeah, MENTAL SOUNDTRACK.. yeah, I know you're jealous. ; )
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think I've done the same thing on consecutive friday nights since the 80's.. but, back then it was fish sticks and cartoons..

..because, I was two.
You should message me if
to be honest, I don't check this thing much, unless I get a message. so, I guess, if you have something interesting to say, share! : D
