It's only after we've lost everything,
that we're free to do anything.

My name is Kenny Katastrophe, and this is my life. I'm a bit of everything - I'm a writer, a gamer, a science geek and book worm. I have a Kawasaki Ninja that I ride for miles, often times across state lines, just for fun. I don't want to sound like I have an ego, but I'm smart. The things that most people can't wrap their minds around scientifically are the things I like to talk/write about. I aspire to someday be a high school math teacher, if I can ever afford to.
I don't drink or do drugs. My parents were both drug addicts and alcoholics and while I'm fairly certain such things aren't genetic, I'd rather not test my luck. As far as drinking goes, I just don't like carbonation or the taste of beer - simple as that. I'm an extremely picky eater and I think that that also bleeds into my selection of beverages. If you drink, so long as you don't get smashed every other day, I could really care less. Smoking, however, is something I can't tolerate.
All of my tattoos mean something. I think it's foolish to get one that doesn't have some meaning. If you want to know about one in detail, I'll be happy to tell you. Suffice to say, each tattoo embodies a part of who I am or a time in my life that was important to me, even if it's image might be borrowed from something. I want someone to be able to look at my tattoo and be able to understand who I really am through that imagery alone. That said, I think that all (professional) tattoos are to be respected and I will never talk bad about one unless the actual tattoo quality is poor, such as bad ink, scratching, etc. If you want a tattoo, think about it a lot and also do a lot of research on the artist. See their portfolio, get some reviews, and make your own decision. You'll probably have to pay more than $20, but you'll be happier in the end. Trust me.
Fight Club is my favorite movie, and Catcher in the Rye is my favorite book. I've read Fight Club as well and though I prefer a few parts of each, I think the movie was better overall. I'm a huge book nerd and I'm almost always reading a new book. I read a lot of classics - the kind of books that you get assigned to read during high school - because they're usually the most well written and thought out books out there. I'm also a huge fan of Harry Potter and have endless respect for Rowling as a writer/storyteller. The way she tied literally everything together in the last book was mind blowing to me. Books like Twilight and 50 Shades (which is, in fact, an erotic fanfic of Twilight that got published) can burn in a pit of hellfire because not only is the plot (because they're the same fucking thing) stupid and absolutely void of any real depth or message, but the writing is the quality of a middle schooler. If these are your favorite books/movies, chances are I can have little or no respect for you. Liking Twilight as a movie/book is as bad as liking Justin Bieber or One Direction as musicians - you just have no taste.
This is getting very long, so I hope that if you want to know anything else, you'll ask. If I'm in a good mood, chances are I'll give you way more than you expected. However, if you message me with "+10" or "hi, how are you?" I probably won't respond. Please give me something to reply to.
"I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside." - Girl, Interrupted
"It's just so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. You know, what's the point of living... if you don't have a dick?"
"'Donnie Darko' - what the hell kind of name is that? It's like some sort of superhero or something."
"What makes you think I'm not?" - Donnie Darko
"You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."
"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."
"Self-improvement is masturbation... now self destruction..."
"You had to give it to him: he had a plan. And it started to make sense, in a Tyler sort of way. No fear. No distractions. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide."
"What Tyler had created was the shadow for a giant hand. Only now the fingers were Nosferatu-long and the thumb was too short, but he said how at exactly four-thirty the hand was perfect. The giant shadow hand was perfect for one minute, and for one perfect minute Tyler had sat in the palm of a perfection he'd created himself. One minute was enough, Tyler said, a person had to work hard for it, but a minute of perfection was worth the effort. A moment was the most you could ever expect from perfection." - Fight Club
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
"It was always the becoming he dreamed of, never the being."
"I don't want to repeat my innocence. I want the pleasure of losing it again."
"He had conformed, he had succeeded, but as his imagination was neither satisfied nor grasped by his own success, he had listlessly, half-accidentally chucked the whole thing and became again: The fundamental Amory."
"With people like us our home is where we are not." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
"That's the whole trouble. You can't ever find a place that's nice and peaceful, because there isn't any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write "Fuck you" right under your nose. Try it sometime. I think, even, if I ever die, and they stick me in a cemetery, and I have a tombstone and all, it'll say "Holden Caulfield" on it, and then what year I was born and what year I died, and then right under that it'll say "Fuck you." I'm positive, in fact." - Catcher in the Rye
"A successful tattoo is something that makes someone feel better about them self. It doesn't matter if it looks like a piece of crap to somebody else. There are no standards to judge it by - the standards to judge by are the standards of the person that is wearing it and whether they're happy or not." - Ed Hardy
"that's why on the back of a brown paper bag
he tried another poem
and he called it "Absolutely Nothing"
because that's what it was really all about
and he gave himself an A
and a slash on each damned wrist
and he hung it on the bathroom door
because this time he didnt think
he could reach the kitchen." - Perks of Being a Wallflower
