About Me If I was going to be an inanimate object it would be an 8ball. If I was an animal, I'd probably be extinct or maybe fat house cat. If I was a car, I'd be an rv. I love to modify or make my clothes from other clothes. I like lepord print and safty pins. I hug trees not people. And all of this is an overstatement of the fact. Where's the gun, put it to my head and shoot me. I don't care.

Wild Fact About Me "I suppose you think it's pretty weird, don't you Mike? Well, you'd be right. 'Cause THAT'S the kind of guy I am, right? WEIRD. Which is why I go over people's heads. A bit like an aeroplane! You think I'm an aeroplane, don't you, Mike? Well, I'm not."
-Rick, the Peoples Poet, from The Young Ones, episode Demolition
My Philosophy I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.
- Dawna Markova
What Gives Me Hope Sometimes, when I am driving, I imgagine the asphalt all cracked with the homes and cities turned to ruin and the trees reclaiming it all. I imgaine life flourishing, all the birds and animals living in the ruined buildings with the human threat gone or minimized.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by two scenarios:
a) destroy all government
or
b) curb overpopulation, protect the forrest, animals, ect.

But I would never, ever want a position of "power".
What/who changed my life and why I would say three movies that changed my life are Grand Canyon, Europa Europa and the Journey of Natty Gann. They made a huge impact on me when I was a kid.

Quotation "I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: boring. And that's my one fear: that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again... the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul." -J. G. Ballard
