Sunday, Buddy Sunday
i'm not "family oriented" because i have no idea what the fuck that means. i mean i have parents and a brother and cousins and shit. i'm not always facing them.
WHAT DO WE WANT?
to meet someone in seattle for a beer, or a rock show, or riding bikes, or playing music, or playing pinball, or building something, or learning something, or throwing rocks, or smashing things, or all or none of the above.
WHEN DO WE WANT IT?
i had a dream job at a startup company (yeah yeah everyone has a startup company these days) but there was no money. i was working at a soul crusher to pay my bills and that contract was coming to an end. all my friends started having kids, girls kept telling me "no" when i asked them out, and people kept getting shot.
since i was going to be unemployed looking for work anyway, i figured i might as well be unemployed looking for work in seattle instead of being unemployed looking for work in st. louis.
so i sold my couches and tossed a pretty nice mattress out in the alley, packed my car and drove up to seattle. i waited tables in south lake union for a few months over the summer. that was ... a job. on the plus side i really liked my coworkers!
now i'm back in the startup world though. in a nutshell i do "mechanical design". a lot of it involves drawing drawings which i enjoy. drawings of gears and formed sheet metal and plastic moldings.
also, TV's andy daly performed an improv scene on matt besser's improv4humans podcast based off an intro question that i wrote
there wasn't a section for "my proudest moment" so i'm putting that here
i was raised on a healthy diet of MST3k and the marx bros., monty python and the talking heads.
i've read a lot of isaac asimov. he loves to use the word "sardonic".
i've also read a lot of edgar allen poe. he loves to use the word "ejaculate".
in seattle i'm a fan of:
watching B-movies with a pitcher of PBR at the tin hat in ballard
seeing some ridiculous karaoke at shanghai room in greenwood
playing bubble bobble at add-a-ball in fremont
seeing metal bands and punk bands play at the kraken in u-district
seeing live in-studio sessions at KEXP
shouting "repo man" quotes at the bartender at cozy nut in greenwood
and anyplace that has pinball.
it's a #2 phillips x 8in. makes you feel like a big man, like dirty harry.
lounging in the park
trying to get into D&D/role playing games
if you want to start a punk 'zine or alt-weekly reader
anything collaborative. i need a collaborator.
collaboration begets inspiration.
