Couch #17 – Brian – June 16th, 2010


Couch #17 belongs to Brian.  He got the couch for $50 from a company he worked for called Intertainer when they were closing back 7 or 8 years ago.   Brian is Guitarzan.  Therefore he lives in Guitarzan’s lair in Hollywood.  Brian is single and has no children that he is aware of.   Brian does a lot of things.  He works for Sprint in the mobile pre-paid division.  Mobile marketing, content ingestion, metadata, and service operations are all part of his job.  He does the dirty work.  Music is a way of life to him.  Brian also likes hanging out with his friends  and loves watching movies.  He programs remote controls for rich people on the weekends, which is actually fun.  He loves messing with home theatre electronics and computers any kind of gear, you know, boy’s toys.  Brian is kind of shy, especially with strangers, but once he gets to know you he’s pretty good.  It seems like we have always known each other.  Neither of us remember quite when we met.  It’s been about 10 years.  Brian likes Muse, Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix,  and The Who among other things. He likes a great guitar player and a catchy little melody. A favorite song might be “Eruption” from Van Halen.  Brian really likes pizza, but he can’t have it, ‘cause it makes him fat.  He especially likes pizza from Massey’s in Ohio, which he orders once a year for Super Bowl.  A favorite film of Brian’s is “Spinal Tap”. He could watch it a million times and never get sick of it.   Brian lives in musicland.  His parents met in college and were music majors.   He thinks about music all the time.  He moved out here chasing his dream of being a professional musician.  It’s been a great ride.  Brian still plays all the time.  It’s part of him, like walking.  Brian thinks this 50 couches project is brilliant and that it was very ballsy of me to do it. He loves that I’m doing it. It could be huge if the right people saw it.  It’s a lot like some documetaries that have come out in the last few years.  Brian believes that a lot of people would be interested if they knew about it.
