It is no secret that a song can take you back to a moment. Think of how many times you have heard your favorite song on the radio and you remember that night you were at a concert and the band played it. It transports you back to the moment instantly as the faulty camera of your mind does its…

The full moon, Death Cab for Cutie, and these conversations are not good for my mind.

10 Random Facts About Me

This is finally getting done, Boubonbooksandblues!

  1. I’ve lived in my current neighborhood for most of my life. My family came over in the 20s from Italy and I’m the last one here in the area. I think it’s why I haven’t really considered moving out of here.
  2. I’ve owned each model iPhone. Not sure what that means but if someone is willing to buy it for more than I’ll be paying, I’m not passing it up! Think I’m going to stop for a bit with the 5 though, I really like this one.
  3. My palm tree tattoo is based on one my grandpa had. I got it as tribute to him prior to the actual tattoo with his name on my left arm. He had a palm tree in a similar place on his left arm which he got in the war.
  4. I played two years of college football. It was only DIII because I’m 5’9” but it was a good experience.
  5. I told a girl I loved her in order to sleep with her. This makes me an awful person but I learned my lesson and nothing like that has ever crossed my mind again. I don’t say things I don’t believe any longer.
  6. I tear up when I hear that “You are my sunshine…” song because I used to sing it with my grandma while we watered the trees on the property. It’s still one of my favorite things to think about.
  7. I used to write video game reviews and band interviews for a magazine called Skinnie.
  8. I won a science fair category in grade school with a full color, hand-illustrated poster about the families and species of whales. I still have the trophy, I think.
  9. I’ve performed in a play at Paramount Studios. We won the group comedy category in the Shakespeare Festival when we were in middle school. Now, I wasn’t some integral part but I was part of the group so it was fun. We beat high schools and middle schools so it felt good.
  10. I’m finishing up a project to get a book published.

5 Random Facts about Me per Darlingbexy

First, I’ve had a 10 Fact note in my inbox for some time now and I owe that to one of my followers. I swear I’ll get that out if there are ten more interesting things for me to say after this note. 

  1.  I watched The Little Mermaid more as a kid than I did Transformers and G.I. Joe. My mom’s boyfriend had a little daughter and since I was an only child, that was pretty much my sister equivalent so we watched whatever she wanted. I also didn’t give much of a fuck about G.I. Joe. Transformers on the other hand was awesome and Michael Bay destroyed that part of my childhood, Ninja Turtles are right around the corner so fuck you Michael Bay.
  2. I dated a girl that had the same birthday as I did, she was just 3 years younger. Perhaps that’s her interesting fact? I dunno. It’s not common so it’ll have to do. Two Pisces together is an emotional trainwreck sharknado. Not recommended.
  3. I totally used the fact that I lived next to an actor growing up as a line to hook up with a girl in middle school. “You do? I’d do anything to meet him!” Well…
  4. I checked “Other: Italian” and “Native American” on my college applications and my college ended up just listing me as Native American for all four years. So, thank you everyone’s parents for helping subsidize my college education due to the fact that some of my people were murdered and thrown off their land.
  5. My mom’s friend gave me my first tattoo for $30 in high school. He owned a shop, I’d just turned 18, and my mom wanted me to go to a place she knew. So, that happened. Also, turns out, my mom and I both have a similar tattoo on our right shoulder now. It’s a steer skull (think the Native American symbolism) and mine has feathers on one horn and a dreamcatcher on the other. Hers is different but same basic idea. Was an interesting realization after I’d gotten it and remembered hers.

Alright, well, that’s that. Now I gotta find 10 more things to post soon. Oh, and 5 of you will get this same thing. :)

Writing letters: a nice, forgotten way to spend an evening with a glass of whiskey.

There’s a fairly decent chance I’m mildly depressed. That is all.

confession: I have inhaled the letters you send for any trace of your perfume…

Yes, I am sitting on my floor eating a shrimp burrito, having a beer, and watching the Colbert Report from two weeks ago. Do not judge me.

Hey there, Tumblr. This was me bored earlier at work.

Birthday with @kjacksss She’s mildly ridiculous. But very awesome. #birthday #4100bar #silverlake #me #personal
