the_drumgod's Journal

I am a musician, songwriter, and singer. I play drums and currently play in a band called Poor Man's Gravy. I love all films directed by Martin Scorcese, Paul Thomas Anderson, Alfred Hitchcock, Elia Kazan, Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick and Orson Welles. I am fascinated with the behind-the-scenes stories of such situations/people as the Jonestown tragedy, George Jones, Janis Joplin, Miles Davis, Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, John Wilmot, Jimi Hendrix, Bon Scott, John Bonham, the Third Reich (I am NOT a Nazi) and Keith Moon. Live fast, die young, and leave a beeeeutiful corpse!

I'm also a fan of Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, Patton Oswalt, Margaret Cho, Janeane Garafolo, Katt Williams, Louis C.K., and Lewis Black, only to name a few.

I was born and raised in Charleston, WV, and am the product (whether good or bad) of a fundamentalist Christian upbringing. I do NOT live as a fundamentalist Christian now, however. I envision combining the power and theater of '70's Rock with the emotion of Black and Southern Gospel with the power of bands such as Kyuss and Black Sabbath, with the intelligence of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Yes, Rush, and King Crimson with the cool of Miles Davis, Steely Dan, OLD ZZTop, and OLD Chicago. That would be the ultimate music to me.

I prefer sunsets to sunrises, (which speaks a lot about a person if you GET IT.), Stones to Beatles, Zeppelin to Pink Floyd (although I luvs me some Floyd on occasion!), cool to hot (temperature-wise. Sexx is another story.), and XM to commercial radio.

FAULTS: I am impatient to a STUNNING degree. I will crusade, to my own detriment, against what I perceive to be injustice. I am spoiled. I hate computers. I have a very, VERY, foul mouth, you cocksucking, motherfucking, asshole-licking, piece of worthless, ignorant dogshit. I am a walking contradiction. I mistrust cats. I am very self-conscious. I usually take the negative view of events surrounding me. I hate people. I drink too much. I have the bladder of an 85-year-old man.

POSITIVES: I am at my best when I create. I have good teeth and hair. I am soft-hearted and cry at the drop of a sentimental hat. I am a sucker for puppies. I am loyal to a fault. I am the guy you want to help bury a body (IF you are in my inner circle). If you're right I will defend you to the death. I love and respect women. I am a Master Rank (even Supreme Wizard, according to Sapphire Scarlet), cunnilinguist. I have an incredible sense of humor; however, I don't laugh at just anything, (stupid is funny, dumb is not.). I am an excellent driver who ANTICIPATES. I am well-educated and intelligent. I am HUMBLE. (HA! HA! HA!) I am also full of shit. Thank you very much........good looking.

p.s. (My motto is: "I am a piece of shit around which the world revolves.")
