my name is joshua, i was born and raised in portland, oregon. yes, you heard right. i did not flock here from texas to start a shitty indie band! aside from briefly living in spain i have lived here for all my life, about 25 years.
i am not an intellectual in any way shape or form, and as far as i am concern i will never be one. while i don’t see it all that damaging to mistake me as one, well… just don’t take my opinions that seriously.
i’m a gay atheist who get inspired by religious aesthetics more than most people, i also refuse to identify myself as liberal and for the most part i like to remain apolitical. although that is not always the easiest task.
i like film a lot. and yes i like the pretentious european crap. sorry, but that’s how i role. i do however, think that Godard is rather overrated. i also like a lot of music ranging from free jazz, intense noise rock and classical. i have a hard time with black metal, but it works for me occasionally to some degree.
i also like a lot of art, foreign languages, history, clothing, food, coffee, books, etc etc etc… i’m so predicable.
my philosophy on life is well… i try to find the beauty in things that are commonly conceived as ugly. i find the melody in the noise, the friendship in solitude, the intelligence in ignorance… i like that things are out there that i will never understand. i’m not interested in being friends with everyone who agrees with me, who’s like me, who does what i do. i’m sorry but that is really fucking boring.
