Hobbies (outside of record collecting): / Random things you want us to know about you:

(I'm combining these two Allison!)

reading, city biking, going to shows, baking, amassing large amounts of useless movie and music trivia in my brain, comic books (though I'm currently not reading/subscribed to anything), occasionally when inspired I draw and sometimes try to write songs in my head though I have no real way to communicate or write them or record them as I am impatient and can't sit still long enough to learn how to play an instrument. I'm 31 and still straight edge, I am a workaholic, I can silk screen stuff to a limited degree and rather enjoy doing that, though I don't get to very often.

Real name:

David (that is probably obvious)

Favorite Bands:

There are a ton, but I have tattoos of the following: Alkaline Trio, Hot Water Music, Avail, and The Lawrence Arms. I like a ton of other stuff that ranges from 90's screamo to hip-hop, so take that for what you will.

What's your Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr etc.?:

Cross Ice Pass To The Seventh Level Of Hell (Hockey themed thrash metal) I don't remember our facebook url...

A fourth band that a buddy and I are trying to get off the ground and a fifth band that is kind of new wave-ish.

I play guitar, drums, harmonica and do some singing an lyric writing.

Random things you want us to know about you:

I don't consider myself straight edge any longer as I am not a fan of the label, but I don't drink, smoke or do drugs so take that for what you will. I love coffee more than any sane person should. Last year I set a world record at Pitchfork's music festival in Chicago and it was broken a day later. I go to school at Columbia College Chicago and am perhaps the only person there that does not appreciate Animal Collective. Want to know anything else? Just ask.

I am a member of this group.

right now, i am wondering why i haven't joined this group yet.

first thing to do when i get home from work today? i think so.

Duh you do! I'm eventually going to make shirts that just say "DA>JC" so you have that to look forward to. Also, my band the Burbs are making shirts that are affectionately called the "skull and cross Dave"...I am just that awesome.

Collecting art and show prints...specifically those by Horkey, Bannon, Bertmer, Stout, and Hunt.

Nope

Random things you want us to know about you:

I hate living in Florida but am too lazy to do anything about it. So I complain about it. A lot. I've been told I have an unhealthy obssession with Christina Aguilera. I just don't see it. I watch way too much TV. I'm Hispanic and English is my second language. And I can probably write and speak English better than you can. Shame on you!

I'll probably go back and edit this entry at least 27 times today thanks to my OCD/Anal rentetiveness...

Random things you want us to know about you:

I'm addicted to technology as much as I am music. I am an early tech adopter (hello iPad!), I read tech blogs all day, worshiping my media center, (XBMC), and I Tweet too much. I just started playing dek hockey for the first time last year in an organized league and it's been a blast and one of my new passions. I'm moving to roller hockey this year and hopefully ice eventually. I'm also a huge Penguins fan.

Random things you want us to know about you:

I'm 24 years old, currently enrolled at the University of Akron majoring in CIS: Cisco Networking. As many of you know I have pretty bad anxiety that's been affecting my life the last few years, and in the last year I've seem to have developed some hypochondriac tendencies. I used to be in an anime DVD fansub group, we pretty much put subtitles on the Japanese DVD and redistributed them online, but left since physical media is dying (and it was a pain stacking time suck). I'm really insecure about my future, because I'm pretty sure I choose the wrong major (even though I love computers), but somehow I still take life a day at a time. I'm hoping to move out to Seattle in the next few years, but I'll have to see how my life is then. Not much else I guess, I'm pretty boring.

I skateboard switch mongo. I always thought it was easier just to pump on whatever foot wasn't tired at the time.

I can push mongo with my normal pumping foot (right) in order to ride fakie, but my switch skills/balance need some work. I plan on "starting over" to teach myself how to ride switch more fluidly.
