According to many, I'm a cute guy with a dog. Of course this is a completely subjective analysis... The cute part I mean; I objectively have a dog. Of course that doesn't describe who I am. It just proves that I can babble complete nonsense.
I guess I'm intelligent; many people have said I am. However, I don't have any readily available test results to confirm it. Plus, I think it's the kind of intelligence that can't manifest itself in meaningful ways. My brain is mostly cluttered with useless geography/history trivia and old TV/movie lines.
I play/write music , and if I do say so myself, I'm really quite terrible. I play bass guitar guitar. I also "know" how to play the drums, but don't have the coordination to pull it off very well. I'm also told I do a spot on John K Samson. If you ask nicely I'll show it off. I knit and crochet. I'm also good fixing/building things. Pretty much good at anything with my hands in general.
I tend to be a bit of a lefty-pinko-socialist in my political beliefs, and one day aspire to world domination. All will tremble in terror before my generous social programs and progressive environmental management!!!
If you're one of those people who likes convenient categories, I'm INTJ (sometimes INTP if the moon aligns just right)
Basically, what you're looking at is an aging hipster punk desperately avoiding being ordinary *shudder*.
um... What else...
I've been told I'm one in a million*
*Editor's note: Given that there are over seven billion people on earth it is therefore reasonable to assume there are over seven thousand people like him. Maybe more, as this is a subjective statement based on a small number of reviews and not any empirical studies.
Living in Downtown Hamilton.
One time I went to the suburbs... It was indescribably awful.
Raising a cat and dog.
Bestowing noble titles on said pets.
Every Monday to Friday I zone out from about nine AM to five PM. Somehow this garners a regular paycheck.
Let's move on shall we.
Informational stuff, Dystopian fiction, pretentious crap, etc. Book learnin' is fun.
(if you bring up the walking dead, I will discuss the comics as if you actually care)
Want to hear my thesis on why the original Robocop is an objectively great movie? I used to love going to movies, but fifteen years of superheros, remakes, and sequels have rendered my tolerance paper thin.
Remember when StarTrek revolved around Piccard outwitting his adversaries? Those were good times... Dr Who, and Orange is the New Black are pretty great though.
Almost fifteen years later, this song still send shivers down my spine. If you like the same dinosaur music as me I will swoon. Bonus points if you're pretentious like me and have a fucktonne of vinyl.
I like things I can extract nutrients from or convert into adenosine triphosphate.
If you must know; sushi, cheese, all the chickpeas...
Six things I could easily do without:
Sentences starting with "I don't want to sound racist, but..."
Housing as a profit market
People who take themselves too seriously or are painfully self-unaware.
My pets fighting at 3 in the morning
Every damned thing on the planet. You know when you can't stop your mind from moving over every subject imaginable?
... Oh... well I do.
As a craft beer snob you'll find me at only the finest dive bars. I prefer laid-back dive bars over noisy pubs and I prefer noisy pubs over dance clubs (Hey that rhymes!). Ergo, I don't care for loud crowded places.
I guess that's more of an ideal Friday, not a typical one. It could just as easily be staying in... also might be a Saturday.
