I am Ryan, there is no amount of words to fully describe who I am, so feel free to speak to me and get to know me. I am quite sarcastic, bit of a cynic, have zero tolerance for idiots. I believe 98% of people I seem to meet and come in contact with and just observe are legitimately dumb, and I find most things to be rather terrible. But don't take that to heart. I'm honestly really chilled out. So feel free to say hi.
"Our legacy can only be assured if we continually burn down the past and plant seeds in the ashes to grow new, greater things."
Music is everything to me, and everything I hope to accomplish in life revolves around it. I play drums and bass, drums being my favorite instrument. Just so much raw power within it. I am a gear nerd so feel free to talk me up about that. Favorite drummers include but are not limited to, John Bonham, one of the greatest players to ever grace the kit, Jason Roeder of Neurosis, Derek Roddy, Buddy Rich, Bill Ward of Black Sabbath, Chris Hakius of Sleep/Om, Adam Jarvis of Misery Index and Pig Destroyer, Coady Willis of Big Buisness and The Melvins, and Dale Crover of The Melvins. I also love movies, Star Wars original trilogy and the Evil Dead series being some of my favorites. I also dig and collect comic books.
Philosophy deeply interests me including various religious ideologies although I am not a religious person in the slightest bit, it doesn't hurt to actually educate yourself on it, rather than conform to the whole "I'm an atheist I hate god" mentality where you don't even bother to look into what you're actually standing out against.
"Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything. Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart."

Most people who walk this earth are rather disgusting. I've seen the ugliest sides of human nature and i just find it appalling, yet fascinating at the same time seeing as to how people can be how they are and feel nothing about their harsh actions. As man we blindly see ourselves as the equivalent of gods. Filthy human dust.
"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always."
