What's a musical act that you love, but feel like you shouldn't? Like, it's the odd man out in your taste profile, or just a pinch more or less keyboard and you'd HATE it? Mine is Pop Will Eat Itself. No shame!
Likes are hidden—you have to email me for me to know who you are! (But for the love of all that is unholy, do not just email me "hi".)
Quirky, clever, and cute. Adherent of the Oxford comma. If you email people based only on their photos, you're missing a lot of the picture. And I'll know. Believe me, I'll know.
What I’m doing with my life
Being an atheistic infidel heathen.
I’m really good at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Museums/galleries, dive bars, conventions, meetups, MST3K, audiobooks, podcasts, philosophy, game night, live performance, debates/lectures/demos, road trips, motorcycles (I do have one), estate sales, sewing/crafting/making, writing (I'm a periodic writer at an arts/entertainment blog). Take your pick.
My favorite movie is "A Clockwork Orange" and my favorite band is the Buzzcocks, if that helps. Oh and Christopher Hitchens is (was) my favorite debater. Yes, I have a favorite debater.
The six things I could never do without
At least one of my sewing machines.
At least six of my fingers.
At least two wheels.
At least a quart of water.
At least 85% of my IQ.

You should message me if
...you like intelligent women who make oblique references and are lousy at smalltalk. (1: I'm fine, thanks! 2: Yes, I'm single, like it says in my stats. 3: No, I haven't had any "luck" here. 4: What I'm "looking for" eventually is long term monogamy. 5: Yes, I'm going to hold it against you if you ask me any of those questions, since I just answered them.)
Or if you are expert at frying pickles.
PS Be aware that I probably won't message you first. This isn't some "gender role" nonsense, it's my way of weeding out submissive boys. If you can't hike 'em up and email me, we aren't going to work out well. Although if your profile is empty and you email me "hey," that's also probably true.
