Timothy C. Roy
What do you do?:
How old are you (birthdate)?:
August 7, 1975. I've been breathing for one quarter of a century. To say I've felt alive for 25 years is another story altogether.
What do you do to supplement the mad $crillas Ed Goodlife is paying?:
I currently waste away a sizable portion of my life at a video store. Like all jobs I've had I hate it (one will most often find me dwelling in a mental state of misery and depression), the work is meaningless (since I do nothing I perceive helps the world in anyway or allows for any creativity), I am underpaid (someone's getting paid mmm, yup...Mr. Bourgeousie), and I have no health insurance (but America is a terrific place and capaitalism a wonderful institution, right? I think fucking not)
Timothy likes to:
Tim likes to be around the ones I love, read, write, play guitar, go for walks as far away from concrete and steel as possible, eat great vegan food (i.e. Panda Garden in Richmond VA, House Of Chinese Gourmet in Charlotte NC, Buddha's Delight in Boston MA, Soul Vegetarian in Atlanta GA), and drink chocolate Silk soymilk.

If you could have dinner with one person (living or dead) who would it be?:
Jesus Christ. Man, what I wouldn't give to have one conversation with that crazy bastard. I picture that poor Son Of A Bitch crucified on that cross andit makes me one, kind of sad, because suffocating to death is not very funny, and two, laugh, because, well suffocating to death is very funny...if youthink you're the son of god. Can you say grandiose ideation?

Worst food you ever ate?:
Babaganoush (I'm spelling this phonetically) in Charleston, SC. It tasted how I imagine dirt or mud must taste...truthfully a wretched experience.
Things I like those stupid guys forgot to include in this dumb questionnaire:
Ask yourself every day "Am I happy?" and if you aren't, do something about it. Keep life simple. Material possessions do little to define us as people. Make it an everyday battle to let everyone around you know you are alive (no matter how pissed off they get if you're not fitting some mold or conforming to something rigidly set out by society). Fuck the status quo. Fuck their gods, fuck their mythos, fuck their norms, fuck doctrine and dogma and any organized eastern or western religion that uses salvation as a means to sell an ideology. Fuck this whole goddamn miserable culture. I don't hate humanity, I simply despise nearly ninety-nine percent of the people living on this planet who live by the dictum of one culture's way. Love life. Love the world. It's a wonderful place, it's just difficultto see the beauty sometimes. What "they" think is beauty is more than often ugliness to me.
