About Me
I'm a relaxed, understanding, happy guy. I live in the middle of nowhere and I'm looking to expand my social life. My politics are left of center and it's fairly important that my friends are on the same page. I enjoy rock n' roll, art, literature and films.

I'm Canadian, I've had permanent residence in the US for 18 years or something. I'm originally from the Toronto area, have lived in Montreal, Fredericton NB, Dallas TX and Portland OR. Have travelled Canada and the States extensively. Made it to the UK for 2 weeks on business once, would love to travel the world.

I do not tolerate racism, homophobia, misogyny. If you have to look up misogyny in the dictionary I probably won't tolerate you very well either. Calm down! I guess I have to get this out of the way because, well, I'm surrounded by damnable dumbass ignorant rednecks in my "real life". It can be quite frustrating. It's beautiful here, but the "local color" does not impress.

I'm quite obsessed with underground pop music and have seen thousands of shows over the years. Long time favorites include The Who, Iggy, Ziggy, Lou, Clash, X, Replacements, Dinosaur, Pixies, Mudhoney, Pavement, Built To Spill, Smog, Wilco. More recently Shins, Destroyer, New Pornographers, Grandaddy, Black Mountain, My Morning Jacket, Thermals, Band Of Horses, Tapes N Tapes. Many more...

I know the world is a mess when I'm the only one on this site who lists Will Oldham as an interest. He's a national treasure! And don't ask me, Polly Harvey and Johnny Cash said it first. Fuggit, I'm moving back to Portland, or Louisville, or Austin, or Victoria...

Humor is important. Be absurd, goofy, sarcastic, dark. As long as it comes from the right place. A highly developed sense of the fine line between clever and stupid is mandatory. But please, go ahead and embarrass yourself frequently, I do.

I'm no new-age hippie yuppie hipster dipstick... but I do believe that life is an ongoing learning experience. Opportunities abound for personal growth and introspection. And yes I can even admire certain hippie yuppie hipster dipsticks. Keep your chin up, realize that 95% of the human race is not worth your time, but give 'em a break, they deserve respect and the benefit of the doubt. And you never know when you're going to run into another 5%er.

Bear with me for a little diatribe... My friend Todd once said "I wear my punk rock on the inside". Todd says a lot of cool things but that was one of the best, he lives up to it, and I hope I do too. If you saw me on the street you would not suspect that I consider myself punk rock, but I'm very passionate about the music and the mindset. Punk rock is not about fashion, lifestyle, attitude or a musical genre. It's about being true to yourself while celebrating the diversity of others. It's about searching and caring and striving. Lou Reed has more punk rock in his little finger than most of the pathetic copycat bands of the last 15 years put together.

The differences can be subtle and sometimes hard to discern, even counter-intuitive (thanks Kat). Dean Martin was punk rock, Frank Sinatra was not. Eddie Vedder is punk rock, Jeff Ament is not. Will Oldham is punk rock. Jeff Tweedy is punk rock. Outkast is punk rock. Bob Dylan is punk rock. Woody Guthrie was punk rock. Green Day used to be punk rock, like, fifteen years ago. I don't know what the hell they are now. And really, I don't care.

If this makes any sense to you, I'd love to hear from you. If not, well, ask me some questions, tell me I'm wrong, challenge my assumptions. Maybe we could both learn something?

We are just a child we are just a child
We are wide awake but our legs are shaky
We are unaware we're hyper
And we stare into space with grins on our faces

So give us what we're asking for
'Cause either way we're gonna take it
Our power doesn't run on nothing
We need the land you're standing on

So let's go
Move it

We are old as hell we are old and tell the children
When to kill when to sit still
Everyone doing what we say 'til our dying day
'Til our breath is empty

So give us what we're asking for
Cause either way we're gonna take it
Our power doesn't run on nothing
We need the land you're standing on

So let's go
Move it
You need to let it go
Move it

We're more equal move you people
Off the planet 'cause goddamn we need the fuel
So let the beat roll over everyone in line
Let the beat roll over everyone in line one at a time

They'll give us what we're asking for
'Cause god is with us and our god's the richest
Our power doesn't run on nothing it runs on blood
And blood is easy to obtain when you have no shame

We have no shame

So let the sun fade let the sun fade
We'll still have light we'll burn even brighter
We'll drain the well to go to hell
And we'll be your servants we're worthless and dirt

So let the beat roll over everyone in line
Let the beat roll over everyone in line one at a time
Do you think we'll cease do you see a reason
Do you think it's fair do you think we care

Power Doesn't Run On Nothing - The Thermals, 2006

Fill up your mind with all it can know
Don't forget that your body will let it all go
Fill up your mind with all it can know
What would we be without wishful thinking
