Something Interresting: I am compulsively creative. I was the lead singer of least successful metal band ever in New Orleans. My love of British commedy has caused me to quote Eddie Izzard at inopportune
moments. I hate cold weather, but for some stupid reason evacuated to Massachusetts. (and got stuck here) I will be moving to Austin int two weeks to stay for a couple of months until I can get back to New Orleans. I write poetry, fiction, and music, as well as paint. I am several types of geeks rolled into one. (Sci-fi geek, science geek, comic geek, RPG geek, kareoke geek, Trekkie, AD&D etc.) I tend to laugh uncontrollably when tired. My most recent job was doing inventory at a porn shop. I have been a professional music critic, and would really like to be again. I never shut up.
Recent Picture Don't really have a workable one right now. Look for a white guy with long dark hair, wire-frame glasses, and a pack of cheap cigarettes. Most likely dressed in black, and unless it's extremely hot, I will most likely be wearing a ratty black trenchcoat. Basically, imagin if a hippy, a goth, a metalhead, and a nerd all exploded while standing very close to each other. I'm made out of the parts.
