Lair of the Mediocre

i don't have time for honesty, i'm starting a cult here

5 January 1978
ok, better description of myself. hi, i'm me. i'm a random former white knight now firmly in the "grey" category, working on not being a total ass and loosing what's left of my soul. as to WHY i've stoped trying to save the world one person at a time, well, let's just say that i had a bad experince, and my faith in man is less than could be expected. it could also be because i'm currently working tech support, which will drain your empathy and faith in one's fellow man faster than a hooligan drains a pint before a riot. (hint for the yanks: that's fast)

i'm well travelled (i've been to 3 continents, 39 states, 6 provences of canada and two countries in europe, as well as a short 2 month vacation to venizualia when my grandfather was working there) and basically untill i was 16 didn't spend a single summer at home.

i enjoy meeting new people, running amok, good movies, good music and good conversation. unfortunatly i've also got a total bastard streek a mile long to go along with the scotch stubborness that doens't breed out for generations.

as for good music, i'm fiarly eclectic, though i'm on a ddr/trance/techno kick, along with the power of dark hyms (which goes well with the e-nomine and enigma kick). i also have a special place in my heart for Queen, specifically "A night at the opera" and "Queen II". the albums just strike a chord. other albums are the enigma trilogy set, particularly cross of changes, sarah mclaughlin's (sp) fumbling towards ecstasy, evanescence fallen (hey, don't gimme any shit), shakespear's sister "stay", monty python sings, space by the KLF, sgt. pepper's lonly heart's club band and the white album by the beatles and those are about the only whole albums i like.

songs that particularly strike a chord: "push", grey cell green by nadb, forever young by Alphaville, tonight and the rest of my life, green sude shoes, morning dew by the young dubliners, return to innocence and sadness by enigma, pulp's like a freind and disco 2000, never met a girl like you before and magic piper of love, some repunzel song (not the crap from DMB), don't give up and game's w/out frontiers by peter gabriel, true faith by new order (morning sun remix please) others as i remember them..
