Stuff I Am Not Interested In: Most cats (not all, but most), pictures of your cats (unless they are dressed up in human clothes), anything to do with underwater/scuba diving/marine life, anything to do with space/space travel/possible life on other planets, camping, heights, Bono/U2, the American Civil War (those ghosts are the scariest/most pissed off ghosts in history), how much you dislike popular and well-liked things just to be contrary, Tori Amos, and little else. ..

About me:Yep, I tell "jokes" about Rush and the Doobie Brothers in this day and age.
I should've started R.A.P.E. — Rappers Against Phony Entertainers. I'm pumped about comedy, music, movies, nice people, and other such awesome things. I enjoy being around people who also like stuff, even if it's stuff I'm not that into—just be psyched about something and we'll probably get along.
If you're super bored, I further clutter up cyberspace with a LiveJournal jam. Read it and weep (laughter tears). I also take pictures of things and post them on Flickr. (Sorry, no n00dz.) I also listen to music, which can be seen on Last.fm. Oh, and banal minutiae is documented on Twitter. I think that's everything.
Who I'd like to meet:..Morrissey.. (accomplished!), ..Anderson Cooper.. (also accomplished, see above!), Bill Hicks (when bringing people back from the dead is scientifically possible—should be pretty soon, right?), Ricky Gervais, Banksy, Zack Morris, Edwyn Collins circa 1982, all of my pen pals/zine bros, YOU!
Also people who don't automatically equate "Southern" with "redneck," "racist," or "illiterate toothless yokel." Even in this progressive space year 2009 there seems to be a surprisingly small number of them.
ALSO: G. Clooney. Where he stay at?
ALSO x 2: Alec Baldwin. Don't get it twisted, dude is smoove.
