Who are you?

Hiya. My name is Squid XIII is a U.S Navy Veteran and self-taught painter, photographer, philosopher, blogger, and general purpose creator who explores several mediums. I write, paint and create to offset the symptoms of my PTSD and Depression. After I was honorably discharged from the Navy in 2007 philosophy became my best friend. I'd show up early to classes and read. I churned through all the heavy hitters of philosophy in a couple years. Along the way, I was catching up on all the scary movies I missed while serving. What I didn't know at the time was that philosophy and movies were helping me cope with the chaos in my mind. Philosophy allowed me to think more critically and adapt to the civilian world and horror movies allowed me to process traumatic. In 2014 I combined both passions and started my blog, Interrogating Ideology with a Chainsaw. Since then my interests changed, I adopted a cat and started painting, moved from Chicago to Detroit, so my blog changed as well.

What do you do exactly?

My blog, Interrogating Ideology With a Chainsaw, covers horror movies, philosophy, political theory, psychology, mental health, Cthulhu the cat and other stuff I care about. Most of my writing touches on issues like trauma, social theory and ideology, what the closet monster is really about, and the last thing my cat chewed apart. Although philosophical writing is intended to persuade people, I'm more interested in giving people tools to see deeper themes in movies and hopefully their lives. (Don't just watch Hunger Games, like you aren't already in the matrix.) I aspire to be bombastic, exploratory, radically nuanced, and honest in my writing. As Socrates once said, philosophy isn't one of that democratic conversation where each player's words are given equal weight. We take the risk of truth. (quoted to the best of my memory) My writing is often personal because writing and art are my best outlets

Besides my blog, which has been activ e for almost four years, I paint, take photos and work on numerous creative projects

In January 2018, I started a Patreon www.patreon.com/SquidXIII to help me support myself and motivate myself to write. Everyone who contributes at least $5 per post gets publicly thanked here
