If you're looking at this page, that means one of two things happened:
A: You're so incredibly, unbearably bored you actually want to know about my life, or
B: You mistakenly clicked on the wrong link.
In either case, you're here, so you might as well stay a while, reading this little biography about myself that is so comatose, you just may shoot your computer in utter frustration.
Before you read my profile, if you want, I posted some pictures from my trip to Spain on this site. I'll keep adding more pictures as time passes: My Trip to Spain
My name is Josh, and I'm proud to be one of the handful of Americans who have heard of Dune. Techno isn't all that popular here, because people are more into sticking with the trendy boyband crap where each song sounds the same but with a new stock of nonsensical words that you just know were written five minutes before they went into the recording studio.
My life is a simple life.. I could be in a state of bliss being locked in my room all day reading a good book and listening to Dune. In other words, I'm a loser. Fact is, though, I don't stay locked in my room all day, and, when I listen to Dune, it's usually blasting through my car speakers as I'm driving to work, to a friend's house, or wherever I'm going. I live in New Hampshire, and, well, there just isn't all too much to do here. When me and some friends want to go out, we have a choice between(are you ready??): the mall... or the movies! Wow! That's about it. We also have a few arcades around, but they suck, and we only go there to kill time.
I started listening to Dune sometime in 1997. A friend introduced me to a different euro-act, Pharao, so I started looking into more European stuff. I stumbled onto a Dune site, and my fanaticism has only increased from then on.
By this point, you're probably ready to leave this site and erase it from your bookmarks(if it even made it's way in there somehow), so instead of rambling on, the rest of my profile will just be some survey I filled out in the mail a while ago. Try to enjoy... I know, that's asking a lot...
Nicknames: Joshie(from girlies), Josharooo Number 2(not anymore really, but.. it rhymes.. *cough*)
B-day: December 6th, 1982
Hair color: changes daily(yeah, colored gel!)
Eye Color: Greenish
Personality Type: It really depends on who I'm around. If I'm surrounded by good friends, then I'm completely myself. I can be funny, but can also be talked to seriously. I like to be crazy, but I also like serious discussions and sometimes even debates. But, if I'm around people that I don't know, I tend to stay quiet. It can take a while for people to get to know the real me. Everyone at first assumes I'm just some quiet person with nothing to say, but I'm exactly the opposite.
Are You Single?: No; dating Jackie
Any Pets?: 2 cats(Scrappy & Shadow), and 2 dogs(Zack & Yoda)
Location: New Hampshire.. just try and find me. *muah ha ha*
Occupation: My full time job is being a student. It doesn't pay very well, but the benefits are great. I work part time in a call center, where, recently I got 'promoted.' Now, within the call center, I am a customer service representative for a credit union in California.
Email address: DuneRaver@gmx.net
Online Friends: Laura, Karyn, and all the I.R.Y.P regs.
Pet Peeves: Going to the movies when there are inexcusably annoying people, which includes: jocks and their girlfriends getting wasted, teens that sit in the back row making comments about the movie that they think are funny but only amuse the drunk jocks and their girlfriends, that stupid guy that said "Bless you" to everyone who coughed no matter if they were on the other side of the theater.
Driving Pet Peeves: This one gets it's own category, because, by God there are just so many stupid drivers out there. For one, I hate when people fail to use their blinkers(they're there for a reason!). Then there are those who neglect to yield at a yield sign(imagine that!). Let's not forget those pleasant people who putt along at a steady 20mph when you're already late for work and have hit every red light on the way thus far(praise those with the patience to deal with that... I'm not one of them, mind you). The one that takes the cake, however, are those stupid kids who cut me off every day to steal a parking spot I'm about to take... I swear, one day, I'm just gonna hit 'em. They have a better car than me, so why not? heheheh
Most Humilating Moment: Everytime that I admit to people I still work at Abacus Communications.. yeah, it's pretty embarassing..
Do you believe in love at first sight?: No, because it doesn't exist. You can't love someone you don't know. Lust at first sight, yes... Love at first sight, no.
Most embarassing cd in your collection: Led Zeppelin... I can't stand that "music"
Favorite Breakfast Meal: Chex with bananas.. Mmmmm, and toast/bagels/english muffins with apple butter
Favorite Lunch Meal: I don't usually eat lunch, but when I do, I love to get chicken tenderloins at Ruby Tuesdays.
Favorite Dinner Meal: I love my mom's homemade chicken soup. Mmmm..
Favorite Snack Food: Okay, I'm starting to drool now thinking of food. I eat pretty healthy, so my favorites are things like Soy Nuts, Saltless pretzels, WOW/Baked Tostitos with spicy fat-free bean dip, and fruit always hits the spot.
Best Lyrics From A Song:
Come on take a trip with me Guided by a ray of light To a land where love is free On our expedicion flight Follow me into the light Come on board we're startin' soon Where everything is gonna be alright To the Dark Side of the Moon Just let go and take my hand Fly on wings of fantasy I will show you promised land Higher than your eyes can see Stay with me in paradise Sending you our favorite tune So our future can be nice From the Dark Side of the Moon ~Dune~ "Can't Stop Raving" ~Dune~ "Dark Side..."

Songs That Are The Best: I used to have a huge list of songs, and everytime I found a new song I liked I would add it to the list. Finally I got sick of it, and deleted them all. If you really want to know, your life is more sad than mine.. and that's pretty bad.

Favorite Weather: Cool, rainy days.. it's just soo relaxing sitting out in the sunroom when it's raining out... and swimming in the rain is the best thing to do.
