My self-summary
This guy is an alternative artist with a particular interest in peculiar, macabre and surreal artistry. Currently working as a graphic designer in gastown and couldn't be happier!

Just getting back on the OKC train so we'll see where this goes!

Other obsessions of mine:
-exploring the contours of the subconscious
-a very unhealthy amount of books
-philosophical debate
-culture in all of its forms
-unconventional, unexpected and uninhibited fantastically hot sex
-consent culture
-fire spinning
-altered perceptions
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone"
There are so many. Favorite authors of mine include Aldous Huxley, H.P. Lovecraft, Chuck Palahnuik, Georges Bataille, Douglas Adams, George Orwell, Douglas Coupland, and Jim Woodring
I am also currently nursing a perhaps somewhat unhealthy obsession with A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. This is likely only going to become worse in the future. Oops.

If it has a unique style and transcends traditional narrative chances are I am already hooked. Same goes for Unconventional dialogue/plot direction and obscenely stunning cinematography. I am such a freaking huge sucker for experimental films. The directors David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, Darren Aronofsky, Ridley Scott, Terry Gilliam and Richard Linklater will eternally hold their own little ritual shrines in my heart.
If you have seen any of the following I will probably love the shit out of you.
-The Fall
-Waking Life
-The Man from Earth
-Mr. Nobody

The X-Files, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Community, Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Look Around You, The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh, Garth Merenghi's Dark Place, The Twilight Zone, The Venture Bros, Moral Orel, Superjail!, Archer, Clone High, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Bravest Warriors, Over the Garden Wall, Last Week Tonight, Rick and Morty

While I typically can extract something enjoyable out of most songs I find myself drawn to bands that have peculiar quirks or dig deep into lyrical theme. Stuff that is poetically grim, sprinkled with surreality, tribally derived or psychedelically driven fascinate the heck out of me. Oh and gypsy and carnival inspired music is downright rad!!
These are the bands I most often stuff into ma earholes:
of Montreal, The Dear Hunter, The Mars Volta, Caravan Palace, Parov Stelar, Beats Antique, Longwalkshortdock, Terranova, Lynx and Janover, Infected Mushroom, Puscifer, Portishead, Sphongle, Younger Brother, Bluetech, Opiuo, Animal Collective, Fever Ray, The Blood Brothers, The Decemberists, The Antlers, Boy and Bear, Gotye, Bright Eyes, Islands, Tool, Sufjan Stevens, The Gorillaz, Metronomy, Iron and Wine, Radiohead

Instead of posting my favorite cuisine I shall instead bestow upon you the sounds of my eating
