I'm Blake Deppe. I was born and raised in Jersey, and now live in Chicago, where I work as a journalist. No, I will not get drunk and smoke weed with you. I will not join your whore cult. What I will do is be open to friendship - I'm here to have intelligent conversations with intelligent people. As long as that's on your agenda, feel free to contact me.
I'm not average - that's a fairly cliched statement, but there it is. I don't play any video games, I don't take drugs (other than caffeine), I don't use my cellphone that often, I don't drive nor do I want to, and if you think I like my winters "grim and frostbitten," think again; I prefer them sunny side up.
I like more traditional things: writing, reading, taking long walks, drawing/sketching, painting (I want to learn to do so, anyway), and traveling. I don't sit around getting high or getting ensnared by religion - I go to museums, explore new places, and try and learn something new each day.
I'm a Satanist, best get that cliched statement out of the way, too. My philosophy is one that values oneself as the highest power; I am something to be adored and admired, and if you're an equally artistic and intelligent human being, than so are you. I care about environmentalism and animal rights (I do eat meat, but am against things like hunting for sport, taxidermy, needless experimentation on animals, and animal cruelty).
I currently write for People's World, a leading grassroots paper that focuses on labor, the struggles of our time, and other important issues.
Feel free to get in touch, as long as you intend to be kind and engaging. Thanks for reading this longer-than-average bio.
good music, an occasional beer, good food, traveling by train, reading, writing, seeing new films, an occasional margarita, parks, woods, hot weather, museums, sex, drawing and sketching, painting, etc.
drugs (particularly weed - personal reasons), animal abuse, abuse against and hate against women, homophobia, religion, pseudo-Satanism, hipsterism (is that what you call it?), the whole ghetto/gangsta thing, xenophobia, ignorance, capitalism, etc.
black metal, melodic death metal, folk metal, death metal, some thrash metal, classical music, hard rock, classic rock, southern rock, many other genres I don't feel like listing; I also am willing to listen to core bands if they offer something of intellectual or artistic merit - I'm not so pretentious as to write off an entire genre as commercialized and vapid.
