Hi! I'm Joey. I'm terrible at describing myself, but here goes: I'm eighteen, and I went vegan when I was fifteen. I love animals, especially cats. One of my greatest passions in life is music. In particular, I'm a huge metalhead, and my favorite styles of metal are death metal and black metal. I want to start or join a death metal band someday, hopefully sooner than later (I do vocals). I'm also very drawn to philosophy and enjoy the works of Nietzsche, Martin Heidegger and Søren Kierkegaard. Finally, I'm a huge anime nerd, especially when it comes to the anime franchise Evangelion. I've watched all of the Evangelion movies, read a few of the manga (Japanese comic book) offshoots and plan to get Evangelion-inspired tattoos someday. Yeah, I'm just a little obsessed, hehe. Well, I plan to stick around here for a while and hopefully get to know some of y'all well. I have very few vegetarian friends (although I've inspired a few friends to go vegetarian, without "preaching" at all) and I don't know any fellow vegans IRL or online; I hope that will soon change. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""> So yeah, feel free to shoot me a private message or just say whatever you want here. I'd be happy to talk. Peace.
