I am a Los Angeles-based twentysomething. I have a profession, and I have a secret life in music, and this blog isn't about any of that. I like Blogger because I can't read what you're thinking.

One of the qualities I most admire about myself (aside from my infinite talent, brilliant knack for web design, hot sexy fucking looks, and the ability to bed any woman I want simply by creepily touching their wrists) is my inability to be bored.

I think the last time I ever said I was bored was, like, 20 years ago. Yes, I was probably four-ish.

By no means was I a spoiled kid. Actually, that was so far from reality it kind of boggles me that I didn't turn into some parent-hating Korn fan.

I was just--and still am--a curious kid who can find interest in pretty much anything.

So, yes, I'm easily amused.

C-SPAN? I love how much power is exercised without any emotion or real discourse.

Jennifer Lopez? Have you seen her ass? She's ridiculous.

Parked GoDaddy pages at .coms which are currently vacant? Man, those things must be cash cows! It's like money growing on digital trees.

And so forth and so forth.

Mix my inability to be bored with a near-obsession to create all the time and, well, you'll find me in a room with 5,000 pet projects running simultaneously.

That's both a good and bad thing.

As a professional, I've managed to become the online marketing guy. Researching and creating keyword campaigns and developing concepts for high-end websites has become my biggest time consumer. Why? Because it pays well, that's why.

As an artist, I'm always playing piano. Whether I'm playing other people's music or fucking around with my own shit, I'm playing whenever I have a chance.

Then I'm a part-time piano teacher. It's actually really fun and it also pays pretty well.

But then I'm also a writer (WTF) who used to do a lot of rock journalism for various outlets that allowed me to borrow their press creds to see shows and talk to other artists.

Then I'm a writer who wants to output that work into my own online business endeavors.

Then I'm this then I'm that, then, when time permits, I'm actually Batman's sidekick.

I know I'm spreading myself very thin (it's gotten to the point that my only time to relax has become the hours in which I sleep) and I know I have to change this.

I probably shouldn't open a Tumblr account.
