Profile Information

Being me, listening to good music, appreciating fantastic art, eating delicious food, giving/receiving good ass up-tops, odaxelagnia, lovin' on/caring for/housing small animals, engaging in run on sentences, cracking wise, laughing, watching well made (and B) movies, practicing my love for photography, getting/doing Tattoos, eating unagi, creating unfinished art projects, making jokes, loving the way Messcan girls look like, driving fast, me, I like liking things.
Back in 2003, my friend called me while I was in Lake Tahoe during the week of Christmas and informed me that they had caught Sadahm Hussein, he then went on to tell me that Sadahm's favorite book was the same as mine. That said, Ernest Hemingway once wrote a confusing, yet oddly amusing and erotic tale of a man and his struggle for self gratification, he called this book Old man and the sea. To the unlearned person, this was no literary movement, it was a giant piece of wtf? I love it, call me learn-ed.

Hunter S. Thompson was more than most people think, more than just a drug-crazed reporter. His writing spoke out against the criminal injustice, and in favor of the common person.

Animal Farm by George Orwell has always been a good read, I need to look into his other works, I hear 1984 is an eye opener.

Miranda July has newly become a favorite author of mine. Her stories are so well written, I can't help but enjoy them.

Robert Kirkman is responsible for a lot of really great comics including The Walking Dead and INVINCIBLE. Check them out.

I haven't been an adimate fan of reading books, but great writers such as these, I largely respect.
La Vita E Bella (Life is Beautiful) is my favorite movie, I've got a quote from LIFE (Eddie Murphy & Martin Lawrence) tattooed on my arm and I wish I had a copy of the video from our trip to tahoe 2k3.
Directors/ Screenwriters Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Stephen Spielberg, Michael Gondry, Francis Ford Coppola, Stanley Kubrick, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cohen Brothers, Roberto Benigni, Charlie Kaufman, Darren Aronofsky, Harmony Korine, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Chris Cunningham, Alfonso Cuaron, Jim Jarmusch, Tim Burton, Jon Favreau and many more.

I also love NETFLIX. Love like a man has for a DVD rental service.
A few favorites: Face to Face (R.I.P.), Rage Against the Machine (R.I.P.), Beck, the Aquabats, Norma Jean, Converge, Violent Femmes, Refused (R.I.P.), Radiohead, Del the Funky Homosapien, At the Drive In (R.I.P.), Cave In (R.I.P.), Cursive, The Vandals, Sigur Ros, Descendents, Kool Keith/Dr. Octagon, Curl Up and Die (R.I.P.), The Chariot, Portishead, Dropkick Murphy's, Mike Patton, No Fun at All, El-P, Daft Punk, Jurassic 5, Between the Buried and Me, RJD2, CODE 415, MC Paul Barman, Dillinger Escape Plan, WRENCH, Misfits, Alexisonfire, American Nightmare/Give up the Ghost, Murder By Death, Dan the Automator, Rival Schools, The Presidents of the United States of America, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Second to All (R.I.P.), Blackalicious, Eazy-E, Tenacious D, AFI (pre-drowning), Modest Mouse, Phantom Planet, Flogging Molly, Van Halen (not Van Hagar), Murder City Devils (R.I.P.), Black Flag, Ensign, Styx, Dead Kennedy's, International Noise Conspiracy, Gorillas/Space Monkeys, Dogwood, Scarlet, The Aggrolites, Good Riddance, Beastie Boys, The Specials, Spinal Tap, Journey, Dry and Heavy, Heiroglyphics, Drunken Tiger, Supernova, Need New Body, TRS-80, Taking Back Sunday, Bear VS Shark, and much much much much more...

Sure, it's only a .22, but it's the best .22 I've seen...

Winchester Wildcatt .22 Target/Varmint (not with that scope).

I hadn't touched a computer from late Thursday until yesterday night (and only to do some work), so I've fallen behind on my 30 Days to a Better Man challenges, too far behind for my liking. I plan to make them up in full, just feel awful for getting this far and falling behind like I did.

I hope you are all doing better than I.

Late June/early July is the season for new beginnings, the halfway point in the year...

...Make the most of it. Quit your job if you haven't already, start something new and fresh. The economy's really not that bad.

The first half of 2009 was definitely challenging. I currently work for a company that deals with sending golfers to Mexico for extravagant vacations. I've been the only web/graphic designer for this company, the last 5+ years (almost 6), it was my first job out of college. 2009 brought lots of controversy to Mexico with the drug cartel… Continue

Psyillium, it'll make you better.

I have never posted a blog here before, so I'm going all-out with my first - No holds barred, I'm talking men's room topics and everything.

I have been a viewer of AoM for some time now, over a year easily, but only recently joined the AoM Community recently to start in the 30 Days to A Better Man project.

What's better to aid in becoming a Better Man than taking care of yourself? I say nothing.

My brother, David, about two years back, raved about… Continue
