Aloha.

Boulder, CO. Elevation 5,344'. No Oxygen. That explains a few things about my fellow citizens.

About Me

I'm a simple earthling, but I try to enjoy life with an emphasis on compassion toward fellow humans.

Besides being an official human, I'm a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I also practice at the Denver Zen Center, which is a Buddhist temple (in case you couldn't figure that one out).

Did you know that Colorado has more scuba divers than any other state in the US with the exception of Florida? I can't explain that, but I'm proud to be one of them. My other interests are varied. I used to play the violin and the piano. Now I could probably pull something off with those two instruments, but mostly I'm lapsed. I can still play a mean CD player, though.

I also like to travel (though I don't like paying for it) and am considering writing some sort of thing up for h2g2 on backpacking through Europe. Actually, I just thought that up as I typed it and haven't really been considering it at all, though I'd imagine that the Guide is already loaded with info on backpacking through Europe. Maybe I won't, after all. I'm probably not the best authority, anyway, since I accidentally had too much fun in Rome and got stuck there for awhile, being unable to make it to my train connections in the unholy early mornings after nights at The Drunken Ship.That, though, I could probably write a book on.

One last thing: I don't buy anything (no, not even shoes) that is made in China, if I can avoid it. The Chinese Communist Regime has taken over Tibet in more ways than political. They've exiled Tibet's spiritual and traditional political leader,

Free Tibet! Don't buy things that are MADE IN CHINA

His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso the 14th Dalai Lama, and they're holding hostage many people as political prisoners. Not only that, but the influx of Chinese people into Tibet is effectively destroying the national identity of many Tibetans. Please join me in boycotting products made in China, and write to your representatives to ask the United States and the United Kingdom to join France in their support of Tibet. Stepping off my soapbox now!

My Bookshelf


I read a lot. Actually, probably too much. This allows me to read a lot of bad books, but a lot of good books as well. You can find an eternally incomplete list of some of my favorites at My Bookshelf.

My Work on the Beat GenerationI've also done a lot of work on the Beat Generation, archiving and writing info. I have an approved Guide entry (linked up below)on Jack Kerouac's book On the Road. It's possibly the best writing on the 'net {sarcasm heavy}. Beat Generation ResourcesNo, seriously, some of the best writing on the 'net is done by Levi Asher of Literary KicksLinksTibetan Government-In-ExileI believe that people in countries like the US and the UK can do a lot to save Tibet. This is the homepage for theTibetan Government-In-Exile. This site has a lot of info on what you can do as well as a lot of updates on the condition of the crisis.LinksMy SchoolI'm a sophomore at the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO. Currently, I'm a Humanities major (but check back in a month and I might be a Distributed Studies major). LinksThe Zen CenterThis is the Denver Zen Center, a generally cool place. Those in the Denver or Boulder areas should check out the Public Meditations on Wednesday nights or the Sunday Teishos.

That's All, Folks!...

This is beginning to ramble, so I think I'll just cut it off suddenly in a place no one would expec--
