I write silly shit that I think people pretend to like, but hey, what are friends for? I've been published here and there in literary journals.
I'm fascinated by psychedelic or visionary philosophy and art. I enjoy finding new ways to alter and expand consciousness.
I'm at home in nature more so than the city. Camping, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and all those sorts of things are near and dear to me. I try to make it to at least a couple low key music festivals a year. Me and the festy family always do it right. Oh, and I can fix a car too.
Here, Robert Anton Wilson explains a lot about my perspective on things: "You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends."
I'm a film nerd, as well. Let's see, I was so excited after seeing the Matrix for the first time, I immediately left the theater and puked in the parking lot. Spirited Away transports me to another world. I think I have seen Pulp Fiction and American Beauty over 25 times each. If I had to pick a favorite movie, it would probably be Slacker. El Topo is also pretty high up there, but my favorite director is Luis Bunuel. Robocop! As of late, I have been obsessed with Charlie Chaplin movies.
TV Shows are kind of a recent development for me, but my favorites are Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, Six Feet Under and Lost.
I was opposed to those long drawn out lists of bands on everyone's profile, but everyone is doing it, so I'm caving. First and foremost, Ween is the greatest band of all time. [cue list] Portishead, The Butthole Surfers, Beck, The Velvet Underground, Alanis Morissette, Sound Tribe, The Boredoms, Nirvana, Primus, Ravi Shankar, Cat Stevens, Biggie Smalls, Yonder Mountain String Band, Scissor Sisters, Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett, Laurie Anderson, String Cheese Incident, Aphex Twin, Mindless Self Indulgence, Al Green, Robert Johnson, Rage Against the Machine, Erik Satie, Peelander-Z, anything Jack White touches, Fiona Apple, Black Sabbath, Bone Thugs, The Meat Puppets, Captain Beefheart, The Grateful Dead and all its derivatives, and I dunno, I'm gonna stop now. (PS the new Blank Banshee album is bonkers)
I'm a vegetarian. Not for any sort of moral reason, I just feel better, physically and mentally, when my diet doesn't contain the flesh of dead animals. My motivation is purely selfish. Anyway, generally speaking, I'm not too picky about my food.
