Have you ever been arrested? A Y/N will suffice, but if you feel like expanding on the matter please do. Technically, yes. Never charged, though. I helped a classmate steal a car owned by one of his relatives. During my first or second year of high school. The amusing part is that, to this day, I have no idea how to drive.

Postby Robert G on Sun Aug 15, 2010 10:17 am

I did this two years ago. I feel like doing it again.

Age/Sex/Location?

24/M/Berea. Berea is a suburb of Cleveland that can be reached by taking I-71 South, and then Route 237 once you're past Cleveland Hopkins Airport. It's not the most terrible suburb, but it can make you feel cut off from the city.

Do you have any brothers or sisters?

Two sisters (33 and 26) and one brother (25). My brother's an asshole who feels like he's smarter than everyone else in the room. My 26-year-old sister for the longest time was a lot like my mom, and she's finally getting around to lightening up. My 33-year-old sister is much more of a free-thinker, though it sometimes leads her to make stupid decisions.

When was the last time that you've cried?

Thursday, August 5th. I was in Cleveland watching my friends put on a production of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. My friend Katie was playing Jesus, who didn't talk until the very end of the second act. She's on stage with the dude who was playing Judas, who throughout the play didn't talk either until the very end, because he's catatonic. Judas comes out of his state when Jesus starts talking to him. Judas though, starts acting like a supreme douchebag, which causes Jesus to sit down next to him and look at him in a longing fashion and say, "I miss you, Judas." I wasn't sobbing, but fuck. Katie was really good at delivering that line.

Do you post on any other forum(s) and if so, which ones?

Yes. Us Kids Know (Arcade Fire fansite) and I Hate Music (avant-garde music discussion).

What was the last good CD/LP that you've purchased?

I bought three of them yesterday.

Failing Lights - Failing Lights CD on Intransitive
Jandek - Ready For The House LP reissue on Corwood/Jack Pot.
Eli Keszler - Oxtirn LP on ESP-Disk'

What do you see if you look directly to your right?

I'm afraid my answer is the same as last time. The wall of my dining/family room, a window that shows my neighbor's house and driveway. Oh, there's a fan there this time, too.

What was the last book that you've read?

Nonsense on Stilts: How to Tell Science form Bunk by Massimo Pigliucci. It's an excellent non-fiction book that tackles many things people are confused about when it comes to science, as well as philosophy.

Are you single or in a relationship?

Single. It's starting to drive me crazy.

Oustide of this board, what is your nickname?

Rob. At work they call me "Robbo" sometimes.

Can you recall your very first music purchase? If so, what is it?

I keep thinking it's still They Might Be Giants - Then: The Earlier Years 2xCD.

Please list three bands that you enjoy immensely:

Jim O'Rourke
The Books
Birchville Cat Motel

Please list three bands that you don't like so much:

Handsome Furs
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Phoenix

Have you ever...

Moshed: Y
Slam-danced: Y
Stage-dived: N
Skanked: N
Break-danced: Y

Do you believe in God?

No. It's made life much easier.

Do you believe in the supernatural?

No. It's fun to entertain though.

Do you believe in alien lifeforms?

I originally said "yes" to this question. But now I'm leaning much closer to "no."

Have you ever thought about same-sex experimentation? Please be adult and mature about this question.

Yes, and I experimented with someone I could trust. It wasn't for me.

How do you align yourself politically?

Leftist, though I am not sure where my personal political beliefs place me on the spectrum.

Have you ever been in a protest march? If so, which one?

No.

How would you describe your parents?

My mom tends to be neurotic, aloof and a little crazy. Sometimes, I can't help but think she's, well, a crazy bitch. My dad is more levelheaded but he can bottle things up from time to time and he's also a lame Republican who thinks Reagan was the best president and listens to the Republican talk shows, only to tell me that he's not "politically aligned" to a party. Both can be incredibly discouraging.

Are your parents still alive?

Yes. Mom's 56 and dad's 55.

Do you drink alcohol?

Yes. I tend to drink beer more, but sometimes it's wine and other stuff too.

If at all applicable, post a pic of yourself here:

What song do you want to be played at your funeral?

Brian Eno's arrangement of Pachelbel's Canon in D.

What color socks are you wearing?

Not wearing socks right now. Too hot.

Are you a handyperson?

No. Trying to make myself feel useful just results in me feeling pathetic.

What game(s) did you enjoy the most in your childhood?

My list is still the same though with some editing: The Super Mario Brothers series, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Metroid, Secret of Evermore, Final Fantasys VI, VII and Tactics, Clue, Scrabble.

What was the last thing that you said?

"Goddamn it."

Have you ever spent more than $100 on a pair of jeans?

No.

Describe your favorite band in one word:

Funny.

Are you athletic?

Still not.

Are you shy?

A bit. I do much better in one-on-one conversations. Large groups intimidate me.

Have you ever been arrested? A Y/N will suffice, but if you feel like expanding on the matter please do.

No.

Why do you enjoy this board?

I've met a lot of the people here and they mean something to me.
