Why does there always have to be a title?
So, apparently I'm supposed to show my face and post a welcome thread. I really suck at these 'about me' sort of things, so bear with me as I try really hard not to go off on some sort of tangent.
I'm Zu, I'm currently back studying at University after leaving my tattooing apprenticeship to further my education (or am I just procrastinating a real job?) by doing a Double Major in Journalism and Illustrative Graphics and minoring in Game Design. I have two jobs, one at Dick Smith Electronics as a Sales Assistant and one that has sent me around Australia doing various photoshoots (if you live in Melbourne, come say hi on the 16th-20th of December and see some body suspension). I'm not overly confident when it comes to posting in places like this, but I do it anyway.
I don't exactly remember what it was that got me into Chuck. I do recall my father giving me Fight Club, falling in love, and reading it over and over until pages began to come away from the spine. Have been completely hooked ever since, and don't know why it's taken me this long to join this site.
Other authors I've come to love are William S. Burroughs, Clive Cussler, Jack DuBrul, Louis L'Amour, Frederick Faust, Otis A. Klein, Isaac Asimov, Jack Chalker, Alan Dean Foster, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Jhonen Vasquez (whilst he hasn't written any novels, he's one of my favourite comic book writers/artists and deserves a place along with the other writers who do both) Garth Ennis, Georges Bataille, Dennis Cooper, Irvine Welsh, Jeffrey Eugenides, Kathy Acker, Hubert Selby Jr, Comte de Lautréamont, Craig Clevenger, Susanna Kaysen, etc. I also read a lot of Autobiographies by the likes of Bill Hicks, John Waters, Nikki Sixx, Marilyn Manson, Andy Warhol, Slash, Pete Doherty and quite a few more.
I'm always up for new reading material so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.
I can't not do something with my hands, and in the last 5-6 years have taken up building computers. It's a little embarrassing when people see my spare room and the state it's in from building and repairing the computers of friends. I game far too often, and often find it difficult to not judge people by their gaming platform
Anyway, this is taking up way more concentration than I'm prepared to give after being awake for this long. Feel free to chat to me whenever
Don't try to save yourself, the circle is complete.
