You're probably looking at this because you like my face. Either that or I've been e-stalking you. OR maybe your cat just walked onto your computer and clicked on my profile. A catastrophe. Yeah. Let that one sink in.
Um. Let's see.
I've been in LA for close to a year now. I live in Los Feliz, which I only mention because Google Maps calls it "Lost Phallus" and.. come on.
I originally hail from the Midwest. Or Midworst. Or, you might know it as the vast nether-land one passes over in an airplane on the way to someplace better.
I like making art. It's kind of the one thing I've excelled at my whole life. It's constant, it's catharsis. Primarily I do graphite drawing and oil painting, though I've dabbled in all kinds of media. Right now I'm apprenticing at a tattoo shop, which is epically exciting for me--finally making art my main priority, putting the ol' art education to use. Er. Yeah. I dropped out of art school, by the way.
I have a mangy old dog named Kiely. We have an unhealthy parasitic relationship. I'm basically her human slave and joyride chauffeur. But in turn I get to try desperately to cuddle her while she literally kicks me. It's pretty great. I freestyle little songs about my love for her when we're alone. Shhhh. She's my sunshine and my best friend and my goodness dogs are just pure furry magic.
I should also mention now that I love puns. Just so that's out there.
Side note, I'm totally analog when it comes to media. I recoil at the thought of reading a book on a screen. I'm a BOOK book person. I like the weight of it, and there is something satisfying about being able to measure how many pages you've physically turned. Nerd alert.
Movies... The Family Stone is my favorite. I ain't ashamed. It is what it is. I'm also a hardcore marathon watcher of Lord of the Rings. It gives me goosebumps every time.
TV. I like to knit and watch Netflix which I call "Knitflix." Yeah whatever people besides your grandma can knit and it's totally fine.
I like weird and spooky shit and lowbrow comedy. Medical related stuff too, because I've always wanted to not actually be a doctor but play one on TV.
I've been really into Orphan Black lately. And The Fall, oh my god. And I'm watching Twin Peaks for the first time ever, which has been sublime. And and and I'm always into The X-Files.
As for music, I like the rock 'n roll. But, I'm hopelessly out of touch with most current music. Don't get me wrong, I love the crap out of music. It's just, I still have an iPod with a click-wheel. And I'm like the one person who still goes to the record store and buys an actual real life copy, 'cause I need to hold it in my grubby little paws and read the liner notes and experience the artwork and all that.
If we are what we eat, I'm composed mostly of Spaghetti Ohs and flavor blasted Goldfish Crackers. Sad fact.
Ugh. I just threw up in my mouth a little.
2. You want to go to Disneyland. I've got an annual pass I need to milk for everything it's worth. I mean also who doesn't want to go to Disneyland? People who hate fun and magic, that's who.
3. You saw pictures of my dog and you want to hang out with her. Which, yeah, I totally get.. she's the best.
4. You also knit. And you want to Knitflix and chill. (Oh my god I think I'm so funny.)
5. Or whatever. I can't tell you your business.
