Introduction If I don't get out THERE soon I'll die.
Interests "The 'death car' as the newspapers called it, didn't stop; it came out of the gathering darkness, wavered tragically for a moment, and then disappeared around the bend." "I'm writing this book because we're all going to die —" Yas Yas Yas My name is Tom. I'm a Skid Row hobo born 60 years too late. I read alot; beat beat beat beat mostly, fiction and poetry from the 40s-70s, history, social and political theory, and horror by HP Lovecraft, I’m addicted to comic books and anime, especially Naruto and Fullmetal Alchemist. I've collected Spider-Man comics since i was 6 years old. Guess. My aim is EndlessOuRoBoRoS. You lose. I am adrift in a sea of unemployment, I wrote a novel about the Belltower Society. I read KnBR, don't know them? I have three cats, yeah, big woo, you wanna fight about it. Living on the streets is hard, most of the time I beg for milk outside Joe Rossi's house singing for him until he comes out. I’m the Fresh Prince of DC except that instead of riding a taxi with dice in the mirror I ride the chinatown or megabus. I have a gigantic man crush on *Kerouac*, Hemingway, Camus, William Carlos Williams, and JD Salinger, I can’t fight it and I dont even try. The death of Optimus Prime is one of the only things that’s ever made me cry...annnnnnd I want to cuddle every dangerous animal on earth. I write so as not to die, barren.
