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.
I know this section is kind of lacking, but day to day changes. It's better just to talk this one out. ; )
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..
well, then, for music: it's a wide selection, of which the best survey would, of course, be: http://www.last.fm/user/Valkyr11
..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
..so, 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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM3waZoBHTA
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..
...I'm pretty sure that's more than six..
..because, I was two.
