I play honky tonk guitar on a semi-pro level and can often be found on weekends playing in some stale-beer-smelling beer joint around Central TX. That's after me seeing the US from a van when touring with my old metal band way back when or the loud, twangy roots-rock band I was in later on... When I'm not pawing a guitar, I watch a lot of movies...the more obscure, weird or stupid the better. I had a decent career as a freelance writer for awhile, until it turned my soul as dry and crunchy as an overfried pork rind. Since I find myself, like many other Americans, "inbetween day jobs" right now, I've taken a bit more of an interest in cooking things...the sorts of things you actually cook indoors. I THINK THE RAMONES, THE BLASTERS AND CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL WERE THE THREE BEST DAMN ROCK AND ROLL BANDS TO COME FROM THE UNITED STATES. I have been told that I'm an "interesting guy" but I'm really a rare form of bright, educated, well-informed redneck. I know way more about some things than I should, many of them useless facts. I think it may be my downfall, really. Please don't take me real seriously, because I don't. I just don't want to be looking backwards 20-some years down the line and seeing a bunch of regrets.
