Each week we offer a profile of an outsideleft reader. This is purely voluntary and as they used to say about dating Chris Evert, the line is long, but it moves pretty fast... So, c'mon, whore yourself a little for our entertainment...
Name: Heath K.
Hometown: Los Angeles
Something About It: It's a cesspool
Transport: An old Acura Integra - nothing special
What do you do for money: I'm a freelance graphic designer - a lot of it is under the table.
Preferred Musicians/Music: Sonic Youth, Cornelius, obscure Japanese noise-core crap that no one's ever heard of.
Likes: Del Taco's Macho Nachos, air conditioning, bosoms, Classic VH1, Trader Joe's Cutie Ice Cream Sandwiches, my iPod, off-color jokes
Dislikes: My girlfriend's friends, paying rent, conservatives who try to act liberal to seem cool, pastel colors
Most embarrassing moment: The one time I bought $50 worth of weed from some guy in San Diego and it was just a sack full of oregano.

Alarcon co-founded outsideleft with lamontpaul in 2004. His work for o/l has attracted the attention of hundreds of thousands of readers, oh and probably the fbi too.
