I've been told I look like Kumar, but I think I'd go with Mario Lopez to play me. The title of the movie would be called "The Tourist" because of the Radiohead song that I love that also speaks to how I try to live my life. I also travel a lot. Here's the soundtrack:
1. "40 Oz. To Freedom" by Sublime
2. "Car Thief" by Beastie Boys
3. "Judith" by A Perfect Circle
4. "Mysterons" by Portishead
5. "Venus As A Boy" by Bjork
6. "Fucking Hostile" by Pantera
7. "Sea Song" by Doves
8. "Hooker With A Penis" by Tool
9. "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" by Nirvana
10. "Fuck You Lucy" by Atmosphere
11. "Reptile" by Nine Inch Nails
12. "Thoughts of a Dying Athiest" by Muse
13. "Untitled 8" by Sigur Ros
14. "Dondante" by My Morning Jacket
15. "The Tourist" by Radiohead
So, other than my penis, I'll have to go with an image I saw while I was shrooming back in December. I was staring at my Rage Against The Machine flag for probably a good 20 minutes or so. It's the burning monk album cover from their self-titled release. I was seeing a lot of crazy shit in that flag. The image that sticks out is a serpent made of fire that had a cat head. I haven't checked pill reports, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't already exist.
So I would say that or the first time I made quiche. I guess that wasn't an "encounter" but it did give me feelings I was uncomfortable exploring.
Good and Evil:
I think, maybe against my better judgement, that the majority of people are inherently good. I think most people want to do the right thing and feel bad when they hurt others. Evil comes about because of desperation, as well as things like groupthink and mob mentalities. I just watched a documentary about the Bloods and Crips. I think most of those people (is that politically correct?) are inherently good. They are just in situations where they have no hope and they are controlled by desperation and groupthink.
The only purely evil person I can think of was Jerry Falwell.
My ideal day would involve me waking up at 8:00 after 9 hours of the best sleep of my life. I would wake up next to the lady of my choice and we'd have sex. After the sex, we'd go to a place here in Albuquerque called Weck's and have pancakes. After the pancakes, I would go play some pickup basketball at the gym. Probably for about an hour or so. After basketball, I'd meet up again with my lady and have some more sex. For lunch we'd go to either Fuddruckers or a local place called Independence Grill and eat burgers and shakes. After that, and another round of sex, it would be nap time. I would put on my headphones and fall asleep to "( )" by Sigur Ros. After a nice one-hour nap, I'd take a shower and go see my nieces. I'd hang out with my nieces until it was dinner time. For dinner, I would go have steak & shrimp at Great American Land & Cattle. It doesn't exist anymore, but it was the best food I ever had in my life. I should mention that "OK Computer" by Radiohead would be playing in my car throughout the day. After dinner, my lady and I would have some more sex. I figure I'd be exhausted at that point and I'd just put on a movie, Swingers or The Godfather, and just be lazy with previously stated lady friend.
*Author's note: I love sex, but part of why I included it so much is to overcompensate for my answer to Patrick's homosexual question.
If I could live anywhere, it would be somewhere like Cabo. Preferably on the beach. I would just spend all day listening to music, selling keychains and hitting on tourists.
Tommy. You type fast! Congrats.
What genre is the band? Before you answer this, you must note that any idea I give you will involve drawing as much attention to your package as possible.
If you're playing a punk show, I think you should wear a tight Dead Kennedys shirt with the nipples cut out. Make sure you have plenty of ice handy for this. Also, wear tight jeans with a spiked cock ring that glows.
If you're playing an alternative rock show, I think you should wear a tight Grizzly Bear shirt with the nipples cut out. Make sure you have plenty of ice handy for this. Also, wear tight jeans with an ironic cock ring that glows.
If you're playing a hip-hop show, I think you should wear a tight (in both ways) EPMD shirt with the nipples cut out. Make sure you have plenty of ice handy for this. Also, wear tight jeans with diamond cock ring with spinning rims that glows.
Hope this helps.

Yes, I'm serious.
I play the drums, so it's not always easy to draw attention to my package. I saw a pair of gold lame hot pants in Brooklyn yesterday, but I don't think I have the figure to pull that off.
But enough (far too much!) about me...
Your hair always seems in perfect order. How do you do it?
First, take one of these:
I find the bulky graters are better for this purpose. Once you found a sturdy grater, rub it as hard as you can against one of these:
It has to be an obese Asian baby or you won't get the desired results. Once you have your Asian baby shavings, mix them in a bowl with virgin's blood:
I think mixing for a good 5 minutes will do the trick. Once you have your mixture, boil it with one of these:
Let it cool for 15 minutes then hire one of these...
...to bottle it for you.
Just use it like regular shampoo and you should get something that resembles this:
please take us on a journey through the musical phases of your life. What did you listen to as a kid? Did you have any older siblings/parents influencing your choices? What groups got you into different genres of music?
"Who is this doing this synthetic type of Alpha Beta psychedelic funkin'?"
When I was a little kid, my cousins were probably my main influences. When I was about 9 or 10, I listened to a lot of Prince, N.W.A., Eric B. and Rakim, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane. A lot of rap and R&B. Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre were also 2 of the major artists I liked in the early 90's.
Around 1993 or so, I started liking rock music. My cholo cousins hated this, but something just called out to me. My main artists at that time were Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Green Day, Nine Inch Nails and Weezer. I remember watching Woodstock 94 and being blown away by Nine Inch Nails. Those were my main artists throughout the rest of the 90's. I also got in big Rage Against The Machine, Radiohead and Beastie Boys phases. Beastie Boys are basically my high school soundtrack.
In the late 90's/early 2000's, I started listening to a lot of hip-hop. The Roots was the first group that got my attention. I also enjoyed Nas, Jay-Z, Gangstarr, Grand Puba, Biggie, Tupac and Eminem. I even had a few posts on a web site called sohh.com. It was a hip-hop forum. It might still be around.
I then went into sort of a metal phase. I liked Pantera and Slayer a lot. I loved going to metal shows and getting rowdy. I don't know if I had a lot of anger or what, but heavy music was sort of my thing.
Some friends introduced me to Muse in 2004 and that ushered in more alternative stuff into my life (yet again). It was around that time I re-visited Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Tool and Rage Against The Machine. I started listening to more indie music because of re-visiting these artists. Coachella 2007 changed me as far as getting to know new bands and getting into music festivals.
That leads me into where I am right now. Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, Sigur Ros, Tool, Nine Inch Nails. Those are some of my favorite bands. I'm actually late to the party on a lot of these bands you all have known for years. I barely got into Doves because of Sasquatch research. I think I've found my musical identity and I'm enjoying discovering new music almost on a daily basis.
Salah thinks you are a meathead. Is this true? Y/N. And if so, why? If not, why not?
Well, I hate to say I "plan" to do anything. That would make it seem like I absolutely had to settle down. It's more of something I'm willing to do if the right person comes along. I have no qualms about settling down with one woman at all. I just haven't found her yet. I've had 2 serious girlfriends in my life and I'm 27. I'm been very selective up to this point. I have casually dated A LOT in my life. There is a woman in the picture right now, but I don't have expectations at this point. Luckily, she's really into music festivals like I am. So, if it were to go somewhere, I would hopefully not have to sacrifice too much of my music passion.
As far as kids go, I would like to have kids at some point. I think I'd be a great father. But I guess we'll see what happens. Right now I just enjoy spending time with my 3 nieces.
*edit* Damn it, looks like BD beat me to my question. Gotta think of something else.
The emoticon you used was very appropriate. Was that on purpose?
Anyway, I started practicing when I was 16 and didn't really get good until I was 23 or 24. I still don't know if I'm good, but I've had rave reviews. And the last time I had a review was 2 days ago. So it doesn't seem like I lost it.
I'm not sure what Salah's definition of a meathead is. Everything I've heard is that a meathead is like a bro. Whatever the proper definition is, I don't think I'm a meathead. I can actually have intellectually stimulating conversations and I'm a nice person. Salah and Mark just felt like I was being mean for no reason and I don't think they used to the proper word.
Tommy, I seem to remember some scarring on your shoulder. What happened? (You are welcome to make up a ridiculous story if you would prefer not to share this.)
