For the record, I’ve never done this before. I’m no writer. I’m a very average person who dabbles into all sorts of fun hobbies. In every way I’m a nerd, so if you’re looking for sports reviews or the latest Hollywood drama this isn’t it.
Who am I? I’m a thirty one year old man who’s been married for ten years. I’ve got two kids and one on the way. I’ve lived in Georgia my whole life, with the exception of one summer in San Fransisco.
I grew up in a musical family who played southern gospel music for most of my childhood. I’ve been playing around on drums since I was two. My dad played, so I picked it up by default. I didn’t take it seriously until middle school. I now play drums multiple times a week for various churches.
I’ve also dabbled into making independent short films. My buddies and I used to film all of our skateboarding adventures, so naturally we tried our hand at making movies. I’ve acted and directed many little short films and one feature. It’s so much fun to do, and I regret that I don’t spend much time doing it anymore.
I have always enjoyed video games. I’m a child of the 90’s so Mario, donkey kong, and mortal kombat were played for hours on end. I’m sure I’ll dabble into different games I’m into as the blog progresses.
If you’re interested in looking us up, our feature is called “The Freelands” on YouTube. Don’t be too harsh, we learned a lot about what not to do after we finished the film 🙂
Politics have fascinated me since I was a kid. I remember Bush losing to Clinton back when I was in second grade. I’m not sure what it is that I love about it so much, but I get passionate from time to time about it. I don’t belong to a party. I like to debate the issues in specifics, not to prove why a certain party or candidate is correct. I’m sure I’ll make some folks mad. I’m pretty happy about that.
I don’t see myself writing pages and pages of content. I don’t even know how regularly I’ll post things, but I think I’m going to really enjoy sharing my very random thoughts and ideas with you guys. I’ll probably post a review of the upcoming presidential debate. I also plan on discussing bands I’m into from Muse to Butch Walker. Video games like Metal Gear and Rainbow Six. Movies like Braveheart and Collateral. I’ll also try to post about any news that comes across the wire that I’m interested in.
If you read this and want to stay tuned I would really appreciate it. I’ll read any comments and questions you post. Let me know what you wanna hear my take on. What do you want me to review?
