I live in Tallahassee for now as it's been treating me pretty well.
I have hands and feet and all the proper bits inside. Hairs even.
I work too much.
A misanthrope with latent hippy tendencies. Never different for the sake of being different, but for the desperate sake of being myself.
Proponent of free love.
Stronger proponent of give me my damn space.
I routinely go out in public in a Tyvek jumpsuit and mask, carry a megaphone and do things over, under and around some drums.
We're Approaching the Things What I Love:
(oh these many storied things what I love)
I love sound! Read on...
I listen to too much music, I listen to field recordings of the refrigerator motor.
I work for two radio stations, one as a disc jockey and another as an engineer at an NPR affiliate.
I am also a REALLY GOOD DJ so THERE.
I can beat the ice level. Any of 'em.
I love the subjective good!
I love good movies, good books, good coffee, good conversation, games (video/board/card/improv/et cetera).
I love comedy! But...
I'm a weird comedy snob. I'm particularly fond of dark comedy, screwball or absurdist/dadaist comedy. Satire is great once in a while but spoofs (e.g. your 'movie' movies) generally turn me off.
See that gamut over there? I totally ran it. Zoooooom!
I love animation. To follow...
Don't care where it comes from as long as it is well made.
Having said that the Japanese own the numbers game and have you been WATCHING that Evangelion reboot? Mercy that's a tasty cookie.
And I love to cook! Go get your knives...
I'm a straight up kitchen geek, I delight in turning an onion into onion flavored dust with my KNIVES. I delight in the judicious application of HEAT to create DELICIOUSNESS. I have no idea what a foodie is...
I cook pretty tasty vegan fare at a local coffee shop.
You eat pretty tasty vegan fare at a local coffee shop.
I love my outside time!
Hiking is splendid. Hiking and camping afterwords even better.
Not much of a water dog but I like kayaking.
I dig in a garden. In the dirt. I point at a spot on a lawn and prickly pear cacti appear.
CODA: I love my dark truths!
I am cheery and good-natured, but if you wanna get HEAVY I will swing some PROUST between my legs and then IT WILL GET HEAVY. IT in this case meaning THE SITUATION.
I don't swear or get loud that much, but I will. If I do, it's almost always in humor, not anger. I get pretty condescending when I'm angry, and all that gutter jive throws me off my rage-game. I get my shouty-jollys on stage.
Wachoo know about shouty-jollys?
DESCRIBE IN GREAT DETAIL YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE SJ'S.
I am a ridiculous man, and I'm comfortable with that.
Holding down two jobs while waiting for my ship to come in.
Making a lot of noise.
Authors: Pynchon, Updike, David Foster Wallace, John Cheever, Stephen King, Kundera, Bradbury, Chabon, Pushkin, Orwell, lots more. I've been picking up Goodwill copies of The Secret. I have bought over 20 and I just hand them out to everybody, yelling "Have you READ this?". Then my neck goes at a weird angle and little spindly filament things shoot out of my eyes and spin arcane parabolas.
Also, if you have kids older than 8, try them on Ellen Raskin. She's wonderful; easily my favorite author as a child.
Musics: They Might Be Giants, Devo, Mike Patton, Merzbow, John Zorn, The Olivia Tremor Control, Peg Leg Howell and most southern/delta blues, Post Bop and Free Jazz, also really tight piano jazz trios, Autechre, Residents, Bonzo Dog DooDah Band, Cheer Accident, Frank Zappa, Sergei Prokofiev, Thee Oh Sees, Cannibal Ox, Will Oldham, Frog Eyes, The Violent Femmes, Talking Heads, Ween, Pere Ubu. That's a pretty good run down.

FOOD: IS AWESOME.
The human race is your family, and we all know that you can love your family without really LIKING any of them, yes? Kind of like that I guess, but concerning the LABYRINTH. Back on that ol' labrynth. Working on my Theseus shit, that silly ol' labyrinth. At least in this labyrinth David Bowie isn't shoving his junk in my face and dancing the magic dance. Small favors.
As far as dating goes, I am not really that interested, nor will my schedule really allow anything outside of a casual relationship.
...you wanna do some Mind Crimes.
