My self-summary
I'm generally making music of one kind or another, and if I'm not doing that I'm usually reading a book or playing video games.

Also, I'm curious as to how the technomancers that run this site are able to determine that I'm 'More Experienced' than other men my age when I'm answering questions about Pixar movies and whether or not the sun is larger than the Earth.

ENFP if you're into that armchair Jungian stuff, or Chaotic Good if you're a gross, dice-rolling nerd like me.
What I’m doing with my life
Playing with parrots for a living at the local pet store, writing music in funky alternate tunings, and percolating potential D&D scenarios.
I’m really good at
I spend a lot of time performing and obsessing over folk music, and I've managed to claw my way towards a burgeoning career in it.

I'm also really big into homebrewing and other fermentations like pickles and bread. I have a lot of things bubbling away at any given point. My sourdough starter is a member of the family.

I have a good mind for trivia that I like to supplant with a steady diet of documentaries and as a result I know a lot more about random crap than I probably should.

Bad celebrity impressions are a specialty.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's either the fuzzy face or the vocabulary. Probably the fuzz if I had to guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Patrick Rothfuss, Anne McCaffery, Jim Butcher, Patricia McKillip, Laurie R. King, Orson Scott Card (just wish he wasn't such a tool in real life), Terry Pratchett, Susanna Clarke and other such nonsense. Fantasy is my jam.

Movies: 'The Man From Earth' is my favorite, but close seconds include 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade', 'Big Fish', and 'O Brother Where Art Thou?'.

Shows: Firefly, Dexter, Star Trek TNG, Sherlock, and on along that vein. Most of the Marvel-related hoo-ha that Netflix has been putting out is choice (I didn't see Iron Fist and I don't intend to).

Music: I'm a huge fan of the Blues. The older and delta-ier the better. Folk, Country, Jazz, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, and Celtic stuff. Most of the time if it has some virtuosity to it, I can get into it. I've been putting a lot of work into combating my snobbery and seeking out new sounds to chew on.

The apex of musical expectation sits with Leo Kottke's hallucinogenic guitar weirdness, though I've had a recent obsession with Stan Rogers and sea shanties.

Food: I'm a big fan of the 'rice with stuff in it' genre. My favorite candidates for this are currently beans and kimchi (not at the same time, though).
Six things I could never do without
There's probably a prize goof I could make about homeostasis here, but I won't.

1. A Stringed Instrument
2. A Notebook
3. A Pencil
4. A Frying Pan
5. A 20 Sided Die
6. A Good Novel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fact that pineapple digests you as you chew on it.

Whether or not whatever current instrumental I'm working on actually sounds good or if I'm just wasting time tinkering around with it because I can.

The fact that icebergs and sand dunes groan when they don't think anybody's listening.
On a typical Friday night I am
Buzzing a kazoo and wrestling with a thumbpick.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an extensive collection of bird calls that I hardly ever use.
You should message me if
You feel like an evening passing a book and a beer back and forth is an evening well spent.

You make music and want to jam.

You think we might have one or two obsessions in common and would like to gush about them.
The two of us
