I'm pretty nerdy. I play video games a bit. I have lots of different consoles from an Atari 2600 all the way up to a XBOX 360. I also collect comic books. I write a little. I play guitar, bass, drums and a little piano.

My old band is http://www.myspace.com/onthevergeofruin, and is sort of a BTBAM/Opeth thing.

My new band is still nameless, but is more in the Misery Signals and Isis category.

I play bass and do some vocals in both of these bands.

i want to get to know all of you. more intimately...on the internet.

Hobbies (outside of record collecting):

not wearing pants and generally being a hermit. I watch an obscene amount of adult swim and spend entirely too much time refreshing VC, facebook, and twitter. I enjoy "objects de ahhhhtt", a good iced soy latte, and smoothies. I sound really fucking boring now that I see my hobbies written out.

Play in a band? Run a record label? Link us!:

lulz. musical aptitude. i'm an appreciator not a participator.

Random things you want us to know about you:

-I smoke too much weed and love to talk shit. About anything. Especially terrible Bravo reality tv shows.

-I'm terrified of mold and really any naturally existing fractals (the pattern freaks me out). I also can't run my fingers through carpet.

-I take two showers a day, minimum, and suffer from a litany of allergies and diseases I probably just think I have (hypochondriac) and some I actually do have (generalized/social anxiety disorder)

-I rarely meet new people and it takes a lot out of me to do so because of my anxiety, therefore I spend a ton of time online.

-I tend to watch shows by the season at a time because a) I got no patience and B) I hate waiting (so momma get your ass in here)

-I'm a linguistics major, communications disorders minor. I don't type like I'm educated on the internet.

-I dated a vc hall of famer.

haha yes. i love making random hashtags for internal thoughts and ideas. they tend to bring the lulz (i hope!) :D

Between the smoking weed, talking shit, obsessive showering and hashtags, I feel like we might have been separated at birth. :o

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

I don't twit or tumb. I had facebook, but I've deactivated it twice. It's definitely great to network, but I got sick of being poked by girls who live hours away. Tease.

Hobbies (outside of record collecting):

I'm getting back into photography. I miss being behind a camera and wish I could go visit my aunt who moved to England for her photography business (and my uncle who works in the CIA).

I'm addicted to Woody Allen.

I really enjoy disc golf, walking into borders and finding the most random shit I can to read...I play a lot of ping pong and baseball. Mystery Science Theatre 3000 rules.

NOOOOOPPPEEE

Random things you want us to know about you:

I'm straight, just not straight edge! I'm a super senior at Shepherd University (WV) majoring in Mass Comm: Concentration in Media Studies.

I need to take better care of my gecko (Ryan Goldstein aka RyGo).

I extremely want to work for a record label and/or co-own/work for an amazing music venue. When it comes to music, the area in which I live sucks, so soon enough I can finally travel and experience this fucking life!

I'm unnecessarily positive and overly random/spontaneous and have been yelled at by my ex-gf for being "always happy when [she's] not and [she] cannot understand it!" Well, fuck, it's what I do!

Cute. So he must have hair that can change from brown to black and vice/versa too? I know Casey had completely different colorings when we got her.

Dave

Favorite Bands (No particular order):

Heiress

Okay, where are you from? Heiress are one of my favourite NW bands at the moment, and I don't know anyone else who would put them on a list, much less the first band on their list. We have to know each other.

I live in the midwest. Turned on to them by DW after I found out Pettibone was behind the mic. Picked up their split with Narrows and their debut demo 7" and it's brutal. Pettibone's best best work to date.

Ah, that's awesome. Yeah, growing up around Seattle, John was always one of my biggest inspirations as a singer. Undertow will always have the #1 place in my heart, but Iamthethorn and Heiress are close seconds.

Random things you want us to know about you:

I'm a vegetarian. I've been a hardcore fan of the Simpsons since I was 8 years old. I can legitimatley say that I've been seriously into music since I was 7, though my taste has obviously changed a lot. I do drink a little, so I'm not straight edge, but I don't do any drugs or smoke anything- never have, never will. I'm an only child but I have a dog named Joey and two cats named Charlie and Emily that I love like my family. actually i like my pets more than my family. i have way too many pairs of Vans and drink a disguisting amount of coca-cola.
