Welcome to our weekly Boredwalk Community series, where we ask Boredwalk fans fun questions! This week we're talking to Dan L. of Ramsey NJ, showing off a Someday We'll All Be Dead Shirt.
1. What's your actual day job and what's your dream day job?
I'm the director of sales for Painful Pleasures, a tattoo supply company out of Maryland. I work out of my home in NJ. It has become both my "dream" job and my "real" job. The owners of the company are really nice people. My job rarely feels like work.
2. What's your biggest pet peeve?
I have thousands, but I think when people mispronounce the word "picture" as "pitcher"...if I hear that, I know my blood pressure is on the rise. Oh wait, no — the fact that people still smoke cigarettes. I could have sworn I heard something about them not being healthy. I have too many pet peeves. (You're in excellent company, dude.)
3. What experience do you most want to cross off your bucket list?
Getting my new band Vessel of Light some shows opening for Danzig. (Side bar: Dan is the guitarist for metal band Vessel of Light, and they. are. awesome. Metal-Temple.com just gave their new album Thy Serpent Rise a 10/10 rating, and I whole-heartedly concur. If you dig metal, check Vessel of Light out!)
4. What's a life pro tip the Boredwalk community needs to know?
If you ever feel like you're getting sick, gargle with hydrogen peroxide. Then take cotton swabs and dip them in the peroxide and stick them in your ears and nose. You just killed all the nasty germs in your ears, nose, and throat.
5. What's a surprising fact about you?
I haven't called out sick to work since 1988. (That is some epic work ethic. And/or that hydrogen peroxide tip has worked wonders for you!)
6. Where can the rest of the Boredwalk community find you?
