I'll just steal this I guess

December 31, 2013 at 4:03pm

So, Leopardcool did this, and it intrigued me. Now, if for no other reason than to fulfill my own fleeting desires this New Year's Eve, LET'S DO IT.

BASIC...
Name: Ryan
Birthday: July 26th
Height: 5' 11''
Hair Color: It changes with seasons. Right now, it's a light-ish brown, but over the summer it's blonde. In the deep of winter, it gets oak-colored, because HAIR COLOR ROULETTE.
Zodiac Sign: Leo, not that it's important

DO YOU...
Cuss?: Under the right circumstances, I don't think it's wrong. Hell, I'll do it right now.
Play Any Instruments?: Most of them, actually.
Have Any Piercings?: No, I don't plan on getting any, either.
Have Any Tattoos?: No, but if I had one, I'd get a straight edge tattoo on my left hand or forehand.
Like To Annoy People?: Maybe.
Like Life?: Heck yes. What is life for?
Wear Make-Up?: MAYBE.
Dye Your Hair?: Nuuu.
Scream At The top of your lungs for no reason?: Sometimes. Sometimes...
Get Distracted By Shiny Objects?: Mmm, shiny.
Like Pina Coladas?: For defs.
And Getting Caught In The Rain?: Actually, ye- WAIT A SECOND.

ARE YOU...
Dependable?: I'd like to think I am, but I could be wrong. My reasoning isn't always dependable.
Trustworthy?: I'm pretty messed up, like any person,
Obsessive?: Well, I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, so... yes?
Hyper Active?: No, I'm generally CHILL.
Happy?: The point of life isn't to be happy, but I find that life is better that way. So yes, I am.
Content?: No, and I don't think I ever will be.
Boring?: MAY. BE.
Violent?: I was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruisin' for a bruisin'...
Evil?: Mmmmmm nope.
Hippie-ish?: Equal parts yes and no. Legalize it, man.
Shy?: Very.
Paranoid?: Way too much.
Annoying?: Well, I can't say, but I'm sure I am.
Social?: I try. Sometimes way too hard, which doesn't help anything.
Religious?: I shun the idea of being religious. I accept the idea of being saved, but never will I be religious.

WHATS YOUR FAVORITE...
TV Show?: Doctor Whooo. If Attack on Titan keeps going, though... dayum.
Movie?: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, or Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Both are great.
Band/Singer(s)?: So. Freaking. Many. My favorite band of all-time is Muse, but my recent favorites are Arcade Fire and Queens of the Stone Age.
Song?: I'd throw myself off a cliff trying to decide, but my placeholder is "Communist Daughter" by Neutral Milk Hotel.
Book/Story?: The Bible, first and foremost. The Divine Comedy, second and secondmost.
Color(s)?: Teal, probably.
Shape?: Isohedron, because shut up!
Animal?: PORPOISE. DON'T PLAY.
Person(s)?: I shun you, celebrity culture.
Smell?: Sugar cookies/new guitar. Dat new guitar smell.
Flower?: Chrysanthemum, for literally no reason.
Subject?: History.
Board Game?: Settlers of Catan, Monopoly, and BALDERDASH. Play that last one, please.
Musical?: I am not equipped to answer this question.
Sport?: To watch - basketball, football, and sometimes the Olympics. To play - swimming, football where I don't get hurt.
Word?: Floccinaucinihilipilification.
Quote?: "Is Ringo the best drummer in the world? Ringo isn't even the best drummer in the Beatles!" I honestly don't know.
Hobby?: Scribbles.
Store?: The one I will hopefully find that just gives me free guitar gear. One day.
Season?: Summer or autumn.
Time Of Day?: 9:00 AM. For some reason, my life is always calm at 9:00 AM.

WHATS YOUR...
Worst Fear?: Heights, poltergeists, the death of my family and friends.
Life Goal?: To catch 'em all.
Greatest Accomplishment?: I don't know, living and breathing. And I didn't even start that!

WOULD YOU EVER...
Kill Someone Else?: I pray to God that I never will.
Kill Yourself?: I've had experience with a friend who committed suicide, and I know that's an option that seems so tempting to a lot of people. I'm not that person, nor could I ever be.
Beg For Money?: My personality wouldn't allow for it, be it arrogance or dignity.
Skydive?: I'll get back to you.
Bungee Jump?: I have done that, actually, and might do it again.
Make out in the rain?: Eh?
Run Away From Home?: Couldn't, wouldn't, shouldn't.
Ride A Motorcycle?: Eh???

True story: When I was approximately six months old, my parents took me to D.C. (I went back two years ago and it was pretty great). It was my first vacation and, apparently, it wasn't terrible. While I was there, through a friend of a friend, my parents and I gained access to the innards of the White House. The most sacrosanct chamber? The office of the Vice President of the United States. I've got a picture of myself sitting in the very man's chair, believe it or not!

The objects on his desk ranged from pictures of his family to a wooden mallard to... a computer.

The man who held the title at the time? Al Gore.

...

Guys, I have reason to believe that I may have created the Internet.

It is on quiet spring days that I think about my own mortality, ambitions, and the fact that I haven't watched Firefly in forever.



I must fix this

So, I watched Oldboy last night (the original Korean film, not the apparently-terrible remake), and it got me thinking: has Popecool hypnotized me in my sleep while keeping me in small room for all fifteen years of my life? And, if so, is the trade-off that I'm totally jacked and can take out upwards of 30 guys with a hammer?

Who are you people? :P

Reading Stephen King's Cell has made me far more aware of my use (and perhaps abuse) of technology. Not just phones, but computers and tablets and television. So, while listening to Arcade Fire's new LP Reflektor, I kind of had an internal breakdown and freaked out about how I will always need technology to listen to music, which is my life, even when I can't stand it.

IT WAS NOT FUN GUYS

But I guess I wanted to posit a question: how often do you use technology, and do you feel that you're over-using it? Do you ever feel like throwing your computer out the window and getting a typewriter like a dirty hipster? I, personally, am tired of being dictated by a screen, which is why I'm seeking to de-electronify more often C:
