|mat catastrophe in one sentence:||Everything you've heard about me is wrong, except the real stuff.|
|I hate this part.
I'm 29, and a college grad with no use for my degree. Due to a back injury, I'm not working at all, which means I've got spare time to play on this interweb thing.
I was a frequent contributor to everything2 up until about a year ago, when I suddenly left one morning. I suppose it might have had something to do with hearing lambs screaming early in the morning, but I could save any but myself. So I left.
I'm a nasty individual, both online and in real life. There's a very fine line between my two personas. That line has shifted and blurred a lot over the last several years, to the point where I just stopped thinking about it.
I don't think of myself as much more than a critic. Although I use words to express that criticism, I am not a "writer," or an "author," or anything else of that nature. I don't create "art." I create groups of words that either have a point or they do not. It's easy to see the difference, when you look.
At any rate, in the past year or so I've been involved in running my own little "blog," called Nihilism for Dummies. Am I a nihilist? I don't know. Some of my RL friends insist that I am not, that I just use that word because anarchist lost its shock value two years ago or more. I do know that I feel a lot less attatched to the goings on in the world than I used to. Which might have more to do with getting older and having to hold down a job. Working kind of kills your youthful ideas of right and wrong. I think that's why it's such a scam.
That's all for now.
|Where is mat catastrophe headed,
What is mat catastrophe doing?
|I'm headed to either greatness or the asylum - and maybe both. I'm doing whatever it takes.|
|Turn Ons:||mrs. catastrophe (watch out, boys, she's smokin'!) - music that is fun (good beat, easy to dance to), good lyrics an added bonus, my five cats, having a house, reading, writing something that gets a reply|
|Turn Offs:||people who don't "get it," whatever "it" is at the time, bad drivers, people with beliefs they can't justify, food that doesn't taste like anything, expensive beer, disposable society, reality TV, the internet (in its increasingly lame state), most of what passes for "smart culture" these days, people who long for the good old days, and damn near a lot of other things.
true story, a girl once asked me, "is there nothing in this world that you Love?" and i had no answer for her.
|Hobbies, skills, interests:||i can do some basic CSS and X/HTML coding by hand (pico, through a shell - notepad and then SCP to the server), i am lucky enough to be able to self-teach most things - guitar - writing - etc
other than that, i don't think i have many hobbies.
my interests are whatever strikes me at any given moment. i'm impulsive, that way.
|What am I listening to, watching, or otherwise entertaining myself with?:||nothing at the moment.|
