My self-summary
i like a lot of stuff, and have a hard time setting things aside in a permanent life-choice-kind-of-way.
my mind is a mess of random obsessions with varying/alternating degrees of priority
skateboarding, music, art, concrete design, event(s) organizing (making stuff happen), film, photo, a hundred other things, with about 1-5 new ones added daily...
...all leaning towards the obscure and borderline pretentious, but also the silly and clever.

I am driven, focused, and funny
(probably not as funny as i think i am)

PS, the pic is from 2002. i am more salt and pepper in the muzzle now...
What I’m doing with my life
avoiding capture by the enemy
I’m really good at
skateboarding, thinking, writing music, making a computer work (not a mac though, pfff). making stuff happen, inventing fun, smoking cigarettes, making things out of wood + concrete but not so much metal yet, eating good food, calling bullshit on things that don't make sense, making sense, turning lemons into lemonade, and 'doing it yourself'!
The first things people usually notice about me
i get really exited about stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
seriously where would i start.
some of my favorite directors in no particular order:
park chan wook
david lynch
wes anderson
jean-Pierre Jeunet
johnny to
(i'll stop there)

books are varied and diverse. traditionally i've read a LOT of science fiction, but not so much in the last few years.
loved: "a step farther out" a collection of science fact and speculation by jerry pournelle; the "neuromancer trilogy" by william gibson (and all of his books); most everything by David brin, but especially "earth" + "heart of the comet" which he co-wrote with gregory benford. most of Larry niven's stuff. note: everything Larry Niven + Jerry Pournelle wrote together is a masterwork that is easily greater than the sum of its 2 equal parts!

not science fiction: noam chomsky, "the shipping news", 100 years of solitude, survivor (Palahniuk), "louis riel" chester brown, "the naked ape" desmond morris' , Vonnegut, Peter Singer- especially "Animal Liberation"... this could go on for awhile, i'll stop here...

Music is another story entirely... my organised mp3 collection/ playlist is over 60,000 tracks- over 6 months long... i have about 1000 cds, 1000+ records, 1000+ cassettes, about 100 8-tracks, and maybe 3 reel to reel reels :)

the highlight to me in modern music was the post-hardcore phase of the early-mid-late 90's: shotmaker, okara, union of uranus, hoover, 400 years, don cabellaro, Dazzling Killmen, cap'm jazz.. etc. i listen to a LOT of different stuff, but this is the music-art that has stoked me the most.
the curretn crop of DIY artists that seem to take their cues from the mid 90's skrams + post-hardcore are exiting me quite a bit, including a lot of locals: Authors/ akroid, titan, JBAC, tonn, creeper, whiskey priest, kosmograd, expectorated sequence, le kraken, la maladresse, depost through, hey predator!, dance electric, love & terror cult, MARE. i'll stop here.

food= anything vegetarian/ vegan thats awesome, indian, pizza, rotis (ghandi's!), and my own curry perogi fusion cooking :)

conversations on any of the above subjects could go on for days...
Six things I could never do without
a space program
a skateboard
a computer
my music collection
good food (i'm lucky to live in the western world)
good friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
solving problems
On a typical Friday night I am
possibly doing anything...
You should message me if
you are going on an adventure and need capable accompaniment.
The two of us
