Hello all, from central Kentucky... land of Bluegrass Music and bourbon. Two fine things in my opinion. Been interested in Burningman since reading about it in National Geographic some years back. Lurked the site on and off since then and have planned for years to go. Working for myself, though, I’ve found that one often has the time or the money, but rarely both. So it goes... ‘04 will be my third attempt and I’ve heard that’s the one that’s charmed... we’ll see.
Hmmm.. tell you about me. My name is Matt. I am a self-employed, self-sufficient Artist/Blacksmith/Metal-Wood-(insert material of client’s choice) workin’ kinda’ guy (Jeez... that might not be a good thing to say in this forum, huh? Scratch that I am totally inept and can’t even drive a nail. Welding equipment???...no, why do you ask?). Although on second thought, industrious people DO generally make friends fairly easily.
I (and some cats) live pretty much isolated, and, best as I can tell, I’m somewhat of a local oddity. I like to think that I keep my neighbors mystified anyway. Always working on something interesting in the shop. The didjeridoo in the evenings probably helps too. Seems like “burners” are my kind of people. Just few and far between ’round here. Spent many years living in Asheville, NC and miss that mentality. If you’ve ever been, you know what I’m saying. If not, I suspect any burner would find it much to their liking. Um... what else to help you know me... oh yeah, support Michael Franti and Spearhead. This should give you a pretty good idea of what I yam.
