BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
20 More Random Things About Me 
10th-Nov-2005 12:36 pm
  1. I love to go grocery & farmer's market shopping. It was one of my favorite things to do with my mama when I was little, particularly when I'd ask for special things to bake cakes or muffins and she's always help me. I learned most of what I know about cooking from her. She cultivated my love of cooking and feeding people, as well as nurturing them and adopting strays.

  2. Anytime I see a movie like The Breakfast Club or The Karate Kid coming on TNT or USA Network, I feel compelled to watch it for the 3,267th time. Same with any and all episodes of Roseanne.

  3. I can and will eat sushi until it absolutely makes me sick. It is possibly my favorite extravagant meal.

  4. Once upon a time I had a love affair with heroin, it was 13 years ago and I have no regrets about it. A large part of who I am is a direct result of my former drug usage. I do admit that occaisionally I feel very anxious and still have strong urges to do it again, but I cope.

  5. I have no problem with snakes or spiders, but birds and lizards creep me the fuck out.

  6. I love the smell of puppy breath.

  7. I once fell out of a tree and headfirst into a chain link fence, carving out a section of bone from my forehead. Having a high pain tolerance, I just got up and dusted myself of and kept playing, even though I was bleeding profusely and completely freaking out the neighborhood kids. I also got highly pissed off when I was forced to come inside to get cleaned up and ready for a trip to the ER, as it interrupted my playtime.

  8. I cannot watch people do karaoke, it pains me immensely and I have anxiety attacks as a result not unlike those resulting from my intense fear of heights.

  9. When I was a teenager, I had a serious crush on Kirk Cameron. I still count Growing Pains as my 2nd favorite sitcom ever.

  10. On my 7th birthday, my parents took me to pick out a present at a department store after attending a party in my honor at school. I do not recall feeling sick, I do not recall what I ate at the party, but I do recall spontaneously vomiting in the store entrance - and it was vivid pink. Perhaps that is where my aversion to all things pink comes from.

  11. I told my sister in her 5th month of pregnancy that she was going to have a little boy, that he would be a month early, and that he would have red, curly hair. I was right on all counts.

  12. My first real kiss came almost 4 years after I lost my virginity.

  13. It takes a lot to get me to the point of blind rage, but in the rare instances it happens I'm told that my behavior is terrifying, violent, and borders on sociopathic. *bats eyelashes, cradles a kitten*

  14. I used to volunteer on the weekends at a women's clinic that performed abortions. I escorted people in and out of the clinic, walked the grounds and kept the fundies at bay, and lent my support where I could.

  15. I am an avid fan of the site Solotouch (masturbation info, stories, techniques), though I only masturbate approximately once a week on average. Sometimes more, usually not. I also like the site Nifty.org (erotic stories archive), particularly the incest father/son story section.

  16. I once got my ass totally kicked by 4 or 5 rednecks who called my friend a dyke while driving past in a truck one day. I yelled back "Fuck off, asshole!" and they skidded to a stop. When they got out of the truck and strutted over menacingly towards us, she ran to get help. I stayed and stood my ground, forcing myself to get up each time I hit the sidewalk. Later I was asked by friends why I would do such a thing, and I responded "Because FUCK them. I'm not scared to take a beating, but I am scared of letting someone else think I'm just some faggot they can shit on at will because I won't defend myself." I have since declared that I will never throw a first punch, but once the first once comes my way then it's open season and you deserve whatever I give you.

  17. I think I'm possibly the only person in the world who thought "Saving Private Ryan" sucked. I also hated "What Dreams May Come".

  18. Nobody makes me laugh like D does, nobody comforts me like he does, and nobody has ever loved me as completly as he does. No one else ever will, either.

  19. Recently a former friend that I severed ties with sent me an apologetic email in an effort to explain some things that led to the dissolution of the friendship in the first place. I did not read all of it and I did not respond to it as I felt the motives for it were questionable, even though I struggled for a while with whether or not I'd made the right decision. I'm a firm believer that if you don't occaisionally give yourself room for error, you become prone to making errors. In this case, and after much thought, I am confident that I made the right decision for myself in leaving it be. I have no faith that any shared understanding is possible or that even an agreement to disagree could be reached. And at this point, I'm past feeling like it's sad that it came to this. It just doesn't matter to me anymore, I've too many other people I am responsible to.

  20. I need new models for an upcoming photo series, both male and female, and all unafraid of being photographed nude.

Yeah, those are pretty damn hot!


Btw, you're a pretty fascinating guy. ;)

(*me too*)

Thanks!
10th-Nov-2005 05:51 pm (UTC)
i heart nifty so much especally the incest ^^

and i would love to do photos but sadly i live far from you i think
12th-Nov-2005 02:26 pm (UTC)
I think the majority of them are crap, but now and then there's a good one.
10th-Nov-2005 05:58 pm (UTC)
#7 - this reminds me of when I was held up at gunpoint here in Atlanta seven years ago; I refused to give up my wallet because what was going through my head at the time was the thought of how inconvenient it was going to be to have to cancel all my credit cards and get new IDs, etc...

#15 - the father/son incest thought (consensual, of course) does turn me on, and I do have a story to tell; unfortunately it's not mine (I never had a crush on my dad)...

#17 - What Dreams May Come COULD have been a good movie, but even its lavish imagery couldn't save itself from the sappy "Love Conquers All" theme...

#19 - hopefully not a mutual friend of ours; I hate conflicts amongst people I know... it gets me upset

#20 - you know I've always wanted to pose for you!
12th-Nov-2005 02:29 pm (UTC)
I'm just not going to be shit on, I don't care - I'm not wired to back down from anyone, and one day I'm sure it'll get me killed or at least maimed badly.

I don't think I ever had a crush per sé on my father, it's more the type that I idealized. Oh, and ABSOLUTELY consensual.

I'm not sure exactly what it was abut WDMC, I just really disliked it.
12th-Nov-2005 02:29 pm (UTC)
No, it was no one you know.

Thanks!
10th-Nov-2005 05:59 pm (UTC)
I haven't a clue why, but spiders creep me the fuck out. As far as I can tell I've never had a traumatizing childhood experience involving spiders, nor have I ever been bitten by one, but even looking at a picture of 'em makes the hackles on my neck rise.

Blaaaah... even typing about it gives me the shivers.
12th-Nov-2005 02:30 pm (UTC)
I was bitten by a brown recluse in the fall of 2000, but it barely got me. It burned like hell and made me sick, but there was no necrosis or paralysis or anything like that.
12th-Nov-2005 06:17 pm (UTC)


That's just nasty lookin'.
10th-Nov-2005 06:04 pm (UTC)
IN response to #17, the librarian in me says "read the book." I read the book "What Dreams May Come" around when the movie came out and I found it much more interesting.

as for #20, if I lived in the Atlanta area, I might take you up on it. It's something I have been thinking about ever since I saw "Naked Boys Singing" this winter in Portland, ME. There should be a "Naked Girls Singing" and I want to be IN it. Old lady body and all.


12th-Nov-2005 02:31 pm (UTC)
My aim in this new photo project is to find beauty in people's perceived flaws.
10th-Nov-2005 06:06 pm (UTC)
1) Why did you dislike What Dreams May Come?

2) If we ever meet in person, I'm happy to model for you in whatever form if you still need someone - wouldn't be the first time. (One more reason you should come to London!)
12th-Nov-2005 02:33 pm (UTC)
It was this gorgeous cinematography, a brilliant storyline, and actors that I adore - and I felt absolutely NOTHING but boredom watching it.

I would LOVE to photograph you!! You need to bring folk with you next October and come to see D and I in Iceland!
12th-Nov-2005 02:37 pm (UTC)
If I'm still in London then, you got it! ;)

#13: I'm at least half German. Maybe that's it, if either of you are, too.
12th-Nov-2005 02:34 pm (UTC) - Re: Roseannerific!
I sensed that about you, actually.

Well bargained and done.
10th-Nov-2005 06:26 pm (UTC)
I just learned a lot about you, and have a lot more respect for you. Thank you. Oh and if you ever come to tampa and are in need of a female model, and don't have a personal aversion to photographing the voluptuous form, I'll volunteer.
12th-Nov-2005 02:34 pm (UTC)
Thanks, and YES!

WOOF!! I'll watch you pose naked ... BTW — love your New Order LJ icons. I did a "Jetstream"-themed self-portrait a few months back on the planeride back to Atlanta from my father's funeral this summer.
12th-Nov-2005 02:35 pm (UTC)
Likewise, and THANK YOU!! *mmmm....nekkid jeb...*
10th-Nov-2005 06:52 pm (UTC)
Now that I have these new boobs, I'll volunteer. Just kidding. Wait until I lose these 15 pound I've gained and then you're on. But, come to think of it, the boobs will probably go away, too. Oh well! Guess you're SOL. Love you anyway!!
12th-Nov-2005 02:36 pm (UTC)
I want you to help me with the ideas I have in my head about these photos as well.
10th-Nov-2005 07:07 pm (UTC)
Hey if it means I get to meet you I will get naked LOL...not as if its the first time someone has done nude of me...just no Santa hats please...
12th-Nov-2005 02:36 pm (UTC)
Ugh, absolutely no Santa hats - and thankies!
10th-Nov-2005 07:58 pm (UTC)
*high five on #16*

eww puppy breath? O_o
12th-Nov-2005 02:37 pm (UTC)
Puppy breath smells like something happy, at least that is what my sister always says.
10th-Nov-2005 07:59 pm (UTC)
I agree qith 15 and 17, and I'm all for 20 (obviously).

Welcome.
10th-Nov-2005 09:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks for sharing. That's a pretty cool idea. I might gank this from you and attempt it in my journal.

#2 - I'm the same way with both those movies, as well as Steel Magnolias, and a few others. I'm also compelled to watch every episode of The Golden Girls even though I can quote every word almost verbatim and I can utter the punchlines to the jokes before they're spoken, yet I still laugh. Sad, I know.

#3 - Sushi is always my reward to myself for a job well done or when I'm trying to pick myself up from one of life's little episodes.

#6 - I not only love puppy breath, but I love the feeling of a puppy licking my hand or my face. IMO, It's the closest thing to unconditional love one can find outside of a human relationship.

#15 - I'm a sucker for Beginnings, Camping, College, Encounters and Military in Nifty.org. Haven't read a while, but there are some damned good stories in there, both down-n-dirty and literary.

#20 - I'm not afraid of being naked, and wouldn't mind volunteering; I'm afraid of what the picture would look like to me when I saw it.
12th-Nov-2005 02:44 pm (UTC)
We have a Japanese restaurant here in town that I adore. The staff know me by name and by the orders I make - they even make me specialized things to taste now and then. It's kind of like Cheers, only with kick-ass sushi.

My sister says that puppy breath smells like something happy - I agree with this.

Trust me - I have a way with a camera. See here what I mean in the pictures I took of my friend Steve and also here in general.
10th-Nov-2005 10:04 pm (UTC)
10. never mix cherry kool-aid and red velvet cake
12th-Nov-2005 02:44 pm (UTC)
I hate anything cherry flavored, so no worries there.
10th-Nov-2005 10:06 pm (UTC)
8. I cannot watch people do karaoke, it pains me immensely and I have anxiety attacks as a result not unlike those resulting from my intense fear of heights.

Me too. I hate it when my friends want me to go with them. I generally spend a lot of time outside smoking.

10. On my 7th birthday, my parents took me to pick out a present at a department store after attending a party in my honor at school. I do not recall feeling sick, I do not recall what I ate at the party, but I do recall spontaneously vomiting in the store entrance - and it was vivid pink. Perhaps that is where my aversion to all things pink comes from.

When I was six I threw up pink strawberry milkshake on a giant buddha at a Chinese restaurant.

17. I think I'm possibly the only person in the world who thought "Saving Private Ryan" sucked.

Holy fuck was that thing bad. Actually some stupid boy took me to see it on a FIRST DATE. Five minutes into the endless killing I told him I wanted to leave because it was making me sick. I had to look anywhere but at the screen. I watched at least three old men walk out of the theater.







11th-Nov-2005 02:52 am (UTC)
My pink upchuck was Strawberry Quik at the age of four, which I've not drank in the 29 years since. Must everyone throw up something Pepto-Bismol-like?
11th-Nov-2005 03:08 am (UTC)
Ok, so #14 - which clinic did you volunteer at? Was it there or in Atlanta? My brother did the same thing for a couple of years. He worked down at the SurgiCenter for a long while a few years back and one of his best friends is Emily Lyons - the nurse caught in the Eric Rudolph bombing.
12th-Nov-2005 02:46 pm (UTC)
Rosemont in Columbus, but I did visit SurgiCenter in ATL for a few go-rounds.
13th-Nov-2005 11:12 pm (UTC)
You ever happen to bump into a guy by the name of Mark Edwards at the SurgiCenter? He would've been a diva and a half - both literally and figuratively. I can't remember exactly when it was he was working down there, but I know it's been in the last 3 or 4 years...
11th-Nov-2005 03:46 am (UTC)
Well....since I posed in a jock strap for over 300 people, I guess I can do a few nudes to, if you are looking. Also, it was yet another fascinating post of what goes on in your head/life. You gave me food for thought. it's posts like this one that makes me realize how all of us are really very much alike.
12th-Nov-2005 02:48 pm (UTC)
I'd love to have you pose for me. I also think you need to follow suit and post 20 random things about yourself as well.
12th-Nov-2005 06:17 pm (UTC)
I will!
11th-Nov-2005 08:19 am (UTC)
In the Kirk Cameron sentence I read the title of the show as "Growing Penis" and it seemed so appropriate I didn't realize for a while I'd read it wrong!
12th-Nov-2005 02:48 pm (UTC)
ROFL - that never occurred to me, but it is befitting!
17th-Nov-2005 05:04 pm (UTC)
Very interesting stuff. I don't get out your way often, but if we meet up, I would not mind being photographed for your project.
