I'm cursed to live in Fresno California (born and raised). I lived a year in San Diego, but otherwise spent lots of time visiting L.A. & Frisco. I've been to Hawaii for a week long graduation present & once was a featured soloist at the Reno Intl. Jazz Festival but those are the only two times I've been out of state. I've had the opportunity to visit other places but family obligations mostly kept me close to home. I keep meaning to go to Vegas but just haven't gotten around to it yet.
The first car I owned was a Honda Civic (the exact
same model/year/color) that Bruce Willis wrecks in Pulp Fiction - but I owned mine before that movie came out.
The car I currently own and have owned longest is a rotary engine RX-7 two-seater. Both cars are early 1980s models.
I've had lots of jobs that seemed cooler than they were. Currently I'm unemployed.
I'm heterosexual but if I were a chick I'd be bi, I'm sure.
I'm brown skinned. Lots of races mixed in me but the spanish, mexican & apache seem to rule. I turn 41 this Sept.
I have a salt & pepper beard and mustache. I generally only cut my hair once a year, when summer comes, and by the start of every summer I've got a lengthy pony-tail to cut again. When I do cut my hair I'm not opposed to spending $50-80 to get a good looking cut.
I'm good in a crisis, have studied multiple martial arts, and am a proud owner of an iron jaw.
I burned out on homepages about the time every grandma got one. I never did Facebook/MySpace but I'm sure it's cool for those that're into it. As an amateur graphic atist myself I sympathize with your reluctance to post pics. I certainly don't want people photoshopping bodily fluids onto my smile 'n circulating that shit. When I have posted pics I usually (at minimum) put a color filter on it so the whole pic is green, or red , or whatev. But I'm paranoid enough that I don't even use my real name here. Maybe after you've been here awhile & I get to know you better I'll offer up pics (etc).
As to using this place as an outlet to escape real life - well, welcome to the club.
I'm mostly a movie & tv nut but I read a book every now 'n then. I've got many longboxes full of comics but haven't been able to afford that habit for awhile. In the winter I enjoy playing pen & paper RPGs.
Feel free to ask anything else you might wanna know.
P.S. My all-time favorite band (really a duo) is Steely Dan
. Don't read into their name.
