I like to read, history, sci fi and travel fiction. Movies are cool but I am not up on them, I just watch old VHS from the thrift stores that are getting cheaper by the day. I live in Atlanta, and my main social activity is going to shows (and occasionally playing them). I am usually at the Star Bar the second Tuesday of every month at midnight for Kirkwood Ballers Club's latest incarnation. It is an experimental open sign up night right after comedy. Knowing how to play an instrument is not important.
I think creative pursuits are good for all, making and receiving, and the main thing to fight in this world is the devastating boredom that leads people to fucked up life paths. I am old enough to know better, and young enough to still care. Nobody is stupid, there is hope for everyone. People have to just be receptive, and to reach out, and know that other people are not evil either.
Some people do turn bad, I've seen it. I have learned to be more selective of my friends, but I know I will always know a lot of crazy people. Everyone is crazy at a certain level, and knows it. Some of us find some better things to do with that knowledge.
