The kind of guy who orders the fish at McDonalds. Once spent a year selling burglar alarms to businesses door to door in New York City just to make a living. I’m from a maze island of shopping centers and gas stations. I’m from everywhere I’ve ever heard a story told about.

If you’re wondering why I have pictures of Brad Pitt for my thumbnails, well I’m wondering why you don’t.
