Originaly from Minnesota, decided to go on vacation and never went home. . . that was 2005. Now i go home for vacation. Been a long strange trip getting to where im at in my life. Family means alot to me, got 5 younger brothers and 2 sisters.
Been working in tattoo/piercing shops most of my adult life. Piercing the masses sense 2003.
Food~Love to cook, will try anything once. Meat and potatoes kinda guy... grew up on venison/wild game. Meat is a staple in my diet for sure. Fish... Meh, salmon, shrimp, any crustacean realy... not a fan of the fishy taste. Mediteranian is by far my favorite cuisine, olives hummus and pita... best snack ever. Italians make a good sandwich, German hot dogs with kraut! Indian Curry... Thai Curry... fucking love curry. Mexican, gotta be spicy. BBQ is where i shine! I love bbq-ing for people. Dry rub pork loin on the bbq... holy shit. HAHA this is not all about food is it! I may be skinny but i love food, and cooking for that matter. Making sushi at home is always a good time. BACON! yes, im one of those people.
Books ~ Hmm, started with Anne Rice and Steven King when i was 12-13... Have alot of cook books as you can imagine.. mid eval, sorcery, dragon shit lately. On book 9 of 13 in the series im reading atm.(wheel of time) Its bad ass. This is where my nerd comes out... Comics galore. D&D and not ashamed of it! Fucking hate how people think its cool to know who allen ginsberg and Burroughs is. Yeah chuck pah-not gonna try to spell it, wrote some good books... not hip i guess. I will have to say Fugitive and Refugees did intrigue me BEFORE i came to portland.... now its just another small town trying to be a city. Own a copy of anarchist cookbook/zombie survival guide... essential to any home library. Something about the smell of Powells Downtown... love it.
Movies ~ Romero, Tarentino, Scorsese, Old Japanese movies, Zombies, horror, Ichi the killer is a must see, Cecil b demented, army of darkness, Gummo, The doom generation, Star wars! (had to be true to my origins) Again, anything with a sword and/or dragons... Rocky Horror! Always down for a good movie.
Shows ~ HBO makes a good series, weeds, sopranos... Hmm Discovery channel? I have alot of movies from Discovery, never watch the tv channel though... History has some good shows i download too.... Antiques Road show... Again, nerd shit. Burnt out on Family guy/simpsons ect. Own a tv... its old... when it does get used it only plays movies and video games... In short, Fuck TV.
Music ~ Generalist, Listen to the classics, The Doors, Beatles, Floyd ect... Love industrial/Metal, can appreciate good hip hop...Blues, Ska, not alot of punk... the old stuff. Too many bands to list. Local Music is good.
