My self-summary
Hey. I'm Jacob. I'm a capitalist-smashing, hippie-dippie, geeky queer commie banjoist.

I live my life to marvel at the world. sing songs, write poems and study history. I want to hear people's stories, unify the battered and lost in song and make this a merrier world.

Some blathering: I like good conversation, loud music, peals of thunder, gentle rain, the chill at dawn, driving slow, hats, good books, museums, old tattered things, peace, hyperbole, allusions, the outdoors and cultural literacy. I like bitter beer, tea sweet and whiskey smooth.

My heroes are Pete Seeger, Sean "Day9" Plott, Jim Henson and my momma.

Bert from Mary Poppins is my spirit animal.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a nonprofit outdoor school for disadvantaged children as a teacher-naturalist. I get to take kids outdoors, look at dead stuff and play in dirt. It's the best job on earth.

I'm trying to become the darnest folk singer I can possibly be.

I lost my sister last May. She was the best person I knew. Stumbling through that, full disclosure.

I've gotten involved with Put People First! PA and I'm trying to do small things to energize people.
I’m really good at
I'm good at croonin' a low-down tune, speaking to crowds, campfires, rambling and baking chocolate chip cookies, inspiring leaders for the revolution and converting fascists.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair and my bright eyes.

My best friend says I laugh like a cartoon villain. She isn't wrong.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Cut this down ninety times. There's so much more - this is imho the dumbest part of profiles, I'd much rather talk to you organically about cool shit we connect with, wouldn't you?

Books: The Time Machine, Animal Farm, 1984, The Captains and The Kings, Abarat, A Tale of Two Cities, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Wheel of Time, a lot of Tolstoy and Lenin.

Poets: Keats, Hughes, and Kipling.

These three are what I consider quintessentially romantic, American, and masculine respectively.

Movies: Casablanca, Goodnight & Goodluck, The Red Violin, Perfume: Story of a Killer, The Secret of NIMH, Dr. Strangelove, The Dark Crystal, Six String Samurai, The Labyrinth, Moonrise Kingdom. Every muppet movie in existence. BFG. The Neverending Story.

Music: Pete Seeger, The Beatles, AJJ, Highwaymen, Al Jolson, Caravan Palace, pwr bttm. If you don't like Queen we can't be friends.

Telly: Big on cartoons and travel shows. I like FaceOff and Project Runway. I really don't watch much TV. The Muppets are a big deal.
I recently watched Gravity Falls beginning to end. Holy shit, best show since Courage the Cowardly Dog.
The six things I could never do without
My senses, my honest heart, a song in my throat, my banjo and my bare feet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The measure of a man. Is David Bowie truly a perfect standard?

How to be queer and win hearts and minds. The revolution as daily practice. How to turn down and make out.

Where that little book of American poetry I had for years got lost to and why Langston Hughes had to die before I could kiss him.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing music on the banjo, singing loudly, drinking with friends, possibly playing Catan or out a-rambling.
This is what I sound like incase you care
low quality guaranteed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't count to six. [see above]
You should message me if
I'm just a guy going about this waking dream, looking for friends and lovers along the way.
