Kiva Lender Robert
Chester Hill, Sydney, NSW, Australia
forklift truck driver & freight handler
I loan because:
i've been annoyingly poor; & am now comfortably numb. This makes me a seriously pink Floyd (http://www.pinkfloyd.com/). I enjoy the music of Alan Hovhaness (http://www.hovhaness.com/), Harry Partch (http://www.harrypartch.com/), Humphrey Searle & La Monte Young (http://www.melafoundation.org/) - also The Reels (http://www.myspace.com/therealreels), Chase Masterson (http://chasemasterson.com/), Brian Eno, Bob Log III (http://boblog111.com/) & Henry Rollins (http://henryrollins.com/)
My favourite writers are Stephen Fry (http://www.stephenfry.com/), Samuel Beckett (http://samuel-beckett.net/) & Dr Hunter S Thompson, my favourite artists are Charlotte Moorman, Ray & Charles Eames (http://eamesoffice.com/), Yoko Ono (http://imaginepeace.com/) & Carolee Schneemann (http://www.caroleeschneemann.com/), my favourite blog is Nana Visitor's (http://www.thekitchenwitches.blogspot.com.au/), my favourite tv show is Star trek: Deep Space 9 (http://www.startrek.com/page/star-trek-deep-space-nine) & my favourite film is Vertical Features Remake (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075386/)
The odds are good that you haven't heard of many of these names
I strongly suspect that this is my problem, not yours
I support dispersed computing using the BOINC platform (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/index.php), write (when i can),buy art (when i can afford to) as & support people through other crowd-sourced funding sites such as www.goodreturn.org (charitable) & www.kickstarter.com, www.pozible.com, www.Pledgemusic & Indiegogo.com; but Kiva - & my most beautiful Teresa - remain my most important life-affirmation
I suppose all this means that i'm just another Wile E Quixote in denial. If you forced me, i'd have to admit that i know that the damn things are windmills but i still choose to exercise my right to tilt at them anyway. After all, one day they might be giants, & that's when i'll really need the practice....
Carting bloody big boxes out of 10m shipping crates, amongst other things. These crates are made of metal, which isn't pleasant during lightning strikes. I also drive a forklift truck, make computers do something ressembling what they are supposed to & try to be nice on the phone, not necessarily in that order
