My self-summary
you know that part in skip tracer where steve shelley switches from the ride to rimshots and it gets all pretty? a few seconds pass; lee ranaldo gives up talking and tries actually singing. i would like to think my good moments are kinda like that.
What I’m doing with my life
the other day, falling into a wikihole, i discovered that jackson browne wrote the song "these days" when he was 16; skipping classes and vandalism were my specialties at 16. in the wake of this discovery i am playing songwriting catchup with renewed fervor.
I’m really good at
satire, convincing probation officers not to send teenagers to jail, straight edge, dr.mario, buying camera equipment when i am broke, making cactus tacos, parallel parking large vehicles, and clear communication.
The first things people usually notice about me
probably the fact that i am almost always smiling...that, or the sizable tattoo on the side of my head that says "no future."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: gravity's rainbow, the abortion: an historical romance 1966, south of the border west of the sun, walden, sister outsider, breakfast of champions, v, been down so long it looks like up to me, death on the installment plan, against the day, desert solitaire, tell me how long the train's been gone.

tv: gene roddenberry, chris carter.

music of late: joanna newsom, life without buildings, om, can, jodie foster's army, max roach, pharmakon, neu!, pylon, showbiz and ag, zomes, fela kuti, the jesus lizard, wilderness, zounds, 108, brian eno, the breeders, leonard cohen, crucifix, lungfish, lotto, sun kil moon, nick cave, human sexual response, sun ra, the necks, ultramagnetic mcs, shipping news.
Six things I could never do without
-tour to get away from my real life
-a real life to make me appreciate touring
-guitar amplifiers
-time to read
-the promise of a more interesting future
-ethiopian food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
dissipation-driven adaptation of matter...and how when i grow up i want to look like this.
On a typical Friday night I am
lately it's been all work. i work with at-risk teenagers; it is challenging and forces me to be creative. i love my job. the flip side of that is that i work during what most people consider to be social hours.

monday mornings are the new friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i haven't used a fork in over 13 years.
You should message me if
you have a very direct, explicit thing you have been wanting to say to someone but felt it was inappropriate. this is an invitation to get weird.
