My taste in music is not an easy answer. Grew up on Cat Stevens, Gordon Lightfoot, The Beatles.. Was heavily into the 90’s punk/grunge seen as kid. Green Day, Nirvana, Bush, etc..
Punk rock took over and still is the soundtrack on repeat. But my music taste is anywhere from 40’s swing, to Drum and Bass. Post hardcore to 60’s psychadelic. Bluegrass to blues. Classical to Crass. I can’t even begin to describe my taste in music..
what got you interested in re-enacting? alternately, wwii/history in general? also, do want pics of your collection.
Well to answer both, I grew up in Florida and when I was young would visit coastal artillery batteries that where installed along the coast. At a young age I was fascinated by these large concrete fortifications with huge artillery pieces.
At 14 After visiting Alabama and being able to take part in a Civil War coast artillery reenactment as a powder loader, it snowballed from there. I found myself wanting to learn more and more about the history of warfare, and ended up joining a venture crew that portrayed the 4th Coastal Artillery Division for public displays. Rifle and marching drill, artillery firing, and weapons displays at the many fortifications in the south.
Through that unit I started reenacting battles as part of the 3rd Infantry Division. I moved to California years back and went to a few events and then my interest in reenacting petered off. Years later I am more interested than ever, and have built up my collection exponentially within a year.
I might have to drag all my crap out and snap a photo soon..
I was just thinking on my ‘love life’ while pouring myself a cup of Jameson. Thinking back on having someone, that comforting feeling of coming home to someone. It’s been years now, and to be honest for the first time in a long time, I do kind of miss it.
There are so few girls that I could give a shit about, and haven’t even tried perusing any sort of relationship for around 3 years now.
Beyond that, I need to get laid, and I truely miss a certain beautiful lady in Florida.
Just wanted to send out my best wishes to everyone I’ve had the pleasure to meet through this asinine website. I’ve made friends with some of you amazing people, and I am thankful to have had discussions and get to know you.
I know my page is usually apathetically one-sided and repatative.. but I am glad there are people who appreciate the time put forth into finding and editing good photography from the war that means so much to me.
It’s been a hell of a year for me, and I’m looking forward to thrashing through the one that is soon coming.
