I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Pacific trash vortex. Nothing slightly funny or ironic about this.
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to hip-hop lyrics over and over and over again until they're either accurately transcribed or my brain's fried.
You should message me if
You're into head-banging, metal, marvel comics, and backpacking.

You're in love with animals (wild ones, not puppies and kittens, although of course they're alright too) and live dead (the band). You're a Bjorkophile. You're a person of character, integrity and heart.

You want to find someone to go to dangerous punk rock and metal shows with.

**I'm really not into people who think very highly of themselves and/or pat themselves on the back a lot for being such a good person. I believe strongly that most of us (myself included) really are not that great and don't deserve praise/validation b/c of our very hip, very academic, very white-Western-upper class, very PC "ideals" about race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. I'm not impressed by the number of Gender Studies/Intersectional/Third Wave terms you have incorporated into your vocabulary or how non-binary you profess to be. Having "progressive" views on these issues means that you're not a piece of crap (maybe), it doesn't make you a champion of social justice or an above-average individual. No one is a good person because of their values or ideas, and great people generally don't think of themselves as such. Hold on, lemme hop off this high horse right quick.

Or if the spirit simply moves thee.
The two of us
