In my mind I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine.

 Hi. I'm Griffin. I'm 27 and live in Portland (I'm not going to say 'Oregon' because... come on). No, I'm not a fan of Portlandia; it's not that I'm offended by it, it's because it's not funny. If my subject line means anything to you, you should add me without further ado and read the rest later.


I've returned to school full-time to seek a degree in civil engineering after working five years in the building science field. Nothing drives me batshit faster than cars that mosey along unnecessarily in the leftmost lane of the freeway. I hold a private pilot's license with an instrument rating and have a side business writing the questions for pub trivia nights. My girlfriend and I live in a duplex in the whitest quadrant of the city at the mercy of the whims of two geriatric cats. 

I'm a longtime Batman fan who never really got into comic books, and a huge Tolkien enthusiast who despises the genre that followed him. My politics tend toward the liberal, but I just as easily get fed up by how people constantly post the latest Huffington Post or DailyKos articles in a bid to flash their liberal/intellectual/socially conscious credentials as any of the filth spouted from the darlings of conservative America. Some of my favorites musicians/bands are Ween, James Taylor, the Flaming Lips, Blind Pilot, Eels, Steely Dan, Band of Skulls, Blitzen Trapper, Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin and a wide variety of others that'll come up from time to time. I play a little guitar and try to perform my originals at gigs/open mics around town on at least a weekly basis.

My writing usually revolves around my daily doings and projects, though I'm making an effort to work more of my thoughts on the music, film, TV and happenings du jour. I've never been a huge TV viewer, but I'm getting into it now and discovering shows I should have known about long ago. Like The West Wing, or Dexter. Love them.

Me and my backup singer, Beren Manfred von Richtofen.
