ABOUT ME

full time procrastinator of all things related to money or institutional "success" in its 13 or so ugly forms, I try not to predict or exaggerate too much in serious contexts and seek to exaggerate and play as much in my own inner space as I can to balance out bad vibes and my former institutional self. My brother and I live in our parents' four family flat, in our own apartment, with our sister presently sleeping on an air mattress in the kitchen, who just got her master's degree, fancy piece of paper, mine's lost in clutter, I work at Local Harvest, a quality food store, love what i do there, no living wage here, divided I earn little and use moderately, I write streams and rap rivers into digital coffins at my home studio parlor we parlay, I invite creators, creative types, free people, I enjoy spirited conversation, communication, believe in local, no leaders or bureaucrats allowed, you wanna speak to the owner? he's the owner, she's the owner, it's the owner, you're the owner, air's the owner, sun's the owner, horizon's the owner, there is no owner, community, shared love, togetherness, separateness, mesh, void, nothing is the only thing absolve fear trust live do, play outside when the air is healthy trip inside out when the clouds are artificial, slit the chemtrails to bleed their aluminum and call the skull and all its bones to stop rattling, they'll be digested by soil at whatever pace automatons can't understand for shrill shrieking nonsense of this world will be avoided in my home plate brainscape... do or don't, i'll be...

PHILOSOPHY

free love, respect, mutuality, community, togetherness, local, nothing, zazen, buddha nature, teach, do, love, free...i denounce deregulation, institutions, moneypower, nepotism, and bigotry of all forms...organization is a useful evolutionary tool...hygiene has its place, somewhere between narcissism and olfactory...chogyam trungpa rinpoche...set us free...individual sovereignty is presently under attack, has been for a long time, let us not lose it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I met this guy from hamburg who told me about it and it stuck in my mind and now I'm starting to get a vibe that this is the right thing for me to be doing in the moment so I'm doing it and no one knows where the rabbithole might lead...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My bandmate Gary and I (the Lied Two)went to a rap concert at a chill local venue called Atomic Cowboy, the bill was headlined by Mac Lethal, supported by some local hip hop artists yada yada we passed on the dismal opening acts to step outside (Gary's a gray-lung) because there's a smoking ban inside, so we're out in the light rain, big heavy droplets but very few of 'em, and there's a caged-in fire cracklin' lookin' warm, and there's young people all around it, the fire lightin' 'em up all oranges, crimsons, cadmiums, embers, sparks, movement, and this young woman, moved, her head weighed down eyes set left of right toes, she swayed smearing her blurry paint across my shivering cortical canvas, and she ended up being the couch for this cat from Hamburg, Germany who spoke wonders of couchsurfing, and I love the concept and it seems such a post-modern capital-conscious xeno-friendly venture and I have always felt a free society would be an ideal society but a cheaper, friendlier one with couches ain't far off either...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

3 near death experiences in my teens brought me to the void and I have been on the threshold of reality ever since...short-haired throwback to what is...valedictorian, presidential scholar, professional seeker of better life through FREE

Teach, Learn, Share

I will literally be an art teacher for the couchsurfing school...I have a degree in art education because I know that encouraging the creative act is my duty in the world...people would come to my place, ideally, and we would hang out and turn on and and make make make!@#!@#$%!@#$^T%$% random, challenging, fun, sparks of energy and we could start a gallery and all who travel through are all who are on display and everyone's an ARTIST! and it will redefine classrooms and galleries and the "art world" whatever the f that is and we will take on institutions by replacing them with action!!!
