About Me

CURRENT MISSION

TO GO SEE JEFF MANGUM OF NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL

ABOUT ME

Yeah I'm that I.T. guy that always has his head phones in jamming to whatever indie rock album I can get a hold of. I enjoy live shows, art walks, and finding graffiti. There's this great guy, Salvador Dali, with whom I'm obsessed. Let's talk politics, music, and movies they go great with beer!

PHILOSOPHY

Just looking for new experiences in life!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite books include anything by Hubert Selby Jr (Last Exit to Brooklyn), Etgar Keret (Buss Driver Who Wanted to be God), and Neil Gaiman (Sandman!). I also have a soft spot for the literary magazine The Believer (McSweeneys). Allen Ginsberg and those crazy beat poets always make me smile.

I am a huge fan of the Elephant 6 recording company (Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power, Of Montreal), Pixies, Modest Mouse, Pavement, My Bloody Valentine, Deerhoof. I can admit that I have a very strong interest in RiotGrrl. You know those all girl bands (Sleater-Kinney, The Gossip, The Breeders, Bikini Kill, Le Tigre). Hit me up on Spotify!

Movies, where to start? Of course these days you can't say you like movies without mentioning Christopher Nolan (Memento, Following, you know the rest). Darren Aronofsky of course is also a favorite (Pi, Requiem for a Dream). BLEH here goes: Wet Hot American Summer, The Road, Moon, Enter the Void, The Cabin In The Woods is hilarious etc....

Shows? Parks and Rec, Workaholics, Comedy Bang Bang, Arrested Development (new season/movie!), Breaking Bad, just to name a few.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I touched Wayne Coyne's(The Flaming Lips) bubble at a show and saw Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse) play an acoustic guitar in the rain in the middle of a crowd. He played "Styrofoam Boots" while his drummer banged a trash can.
