Hi! Welcome to my Care2 space. Check out my main blog at http://media-log.blogspot.com. It's full of causes related to this site, as well as various stories, poems and writings with an Eastern slant. I'm very interested in meeting like-minded people in the Fort Wayne area, as well as tennis players or artists. If you have Yahoo Music, look me up as caedmonv55; my station is pretty extensive and full of new age/Celtic/ambient/meditation, etc. type music. I'm also on MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/dollargrinder (dollargrinder being a reference to my low-paying job as a lab technician at a local factory, and my stubborn commitment to having a job in addition to running my own business, instead of being the Gen-X slacker I was in my younger years).
I'm fairly intelligent, creative and passionate. I'm a Scorpio and Dragon (Chinese zodiac) and fit them to a tee; if you understand these two signs you probably know that I'm very driven, creative and have a raging savior/world-changer complex. I love tennis/racquet sports and the outdoors. I love the band Live, Neil Young, David Lynch, David Cronenberg, Stanley Kubric, Francis Bacon (the painter), Klimt, Harvey Darger (I'm very interested in Outsider Art/Art Brut) and a variety of other artists.
In "another life" I ran a top-50 movie/entertainment website called RareCelebs.net, an affiliate program guide and was the top contributor to a spectacularly failed dot-com experiment, the peer-2-peer subscription network Yaga.com.
What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
