People called me Droopy because I used to slouch, used to under-sleep and had huge bags below my eyes. The name stuck throughout several years of schooling, into efforts of journalism and music. Variations exist, from Droopalingus to Lingus, to Droops, and of course, Droopzilla. From 2001 to 2008, spsound.com was the home for my portfolio, my event promotions, and general ramblings. The site was an extension of Simple Pleasures Recordings, a record label that never quite got off the ground. Promoting events became the site’s focus for a few years, until events took a back seat to my return to college. As a way to combine my current literary and musical projects, my photos and rants, I have created droopzilla.com.
