I'm a nomad from Texas aspiring to be a modern day Cynic philosopher: wandering from place to place and striving to be increasingly free from irrational cultural conventions and rules and living closer to my inherent nature. Practically speaking it's not much different from what most nomads already do, but I like to feel like I'm the member of a philosophical tradition.

I left home because for years I couldn't really think of anything else I wanted to do except nomad around the country, and even though leaving was one of the most difficult things I've done, I haven't looked back since, and I've been traveling for around 4 months now, although most of that time was living at one commune or another. I registered here instead of just being a passive lurker because traveling can be pretty lonely and I'm hoping to connect with some good people here (and also because I would like to hop trains but I haven't met anyone in real life who could teach me).

Ah, thanks brother. I'm not sure how awesome I might be, but I do try to be as real as I can.

cool man, always good to have a bit of theory behind the chaos ! have you studied philosophy in the past or something ? .... I always liked the idea of the Situationist derive ( or drift ) where a small group of people set out to explore a city in the most spontaneous fashion possible, taking whatever random route(s) inspire them at the time.....

I've studied a far bit non-academically, primarily Cynicism, Stoicism, Buddhism, and a bit on Epicureanism, alongside all sorts of political philosophy. The derive sounds like it could be really cool, maybe someday I'll do that.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
