My self-summary
Geek, theatrical freak, and all around... crap, what rhymes with geek and freak? Leek? Beak?! Not one sentence in and I'm already fucking this up! Ah well, Cest la vie, such is life, so it goes, etcetera.

I can be something of an odd duck, seems that's part for the course in the Pacific NW, but I'm feeling more at home down in this sunny paradise rather than either my rainy home or my frigid home in the north. You heard me. Seattle is a dry, warm, sunny paradise, dammit, and you should all feel grateful! Anyway, relatively new here, loving it, and looking forward to seeing what the future brings. Even building something of a new social circle for myself, which is nice, while also having a number of old friends in the area. All in all, life is good, and I'm working on making it better.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. At a job and on a personal project, the former being somewhat meh, the latter being a sort of podcast audio drama kind of thing. It's slow going, but I'm making progress. I'm also feeding the extrovert half of my omnivert personality more than I have in the past few years. There's more, but that's for the whole getting to know one another part.
I’m really good at
Stuff, things, apparently I can make people laugh reasonably well, provided I'm not trying too hard. Walking the hell out of my shoes. Cooking very specific dishes. DMing a mean game of some RPG or another. Stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dashing good looks, my mighty forehead, my concentrated awesome height, if I'm out then I might be in some sort of costume for science reasons, you tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love this list, no matter how often I change this profile, this is the list that will grow. I might condense it some day, but I kind of like it this way, we'll see which way the wind blows come the future.

Working on Mark Z. Danielewski's "House of Leaves". An amazing book, and not a light read. That he and his sister, Poe, (one of my favorite recording artists) worked together to create some overlap with his book and her album 'Haunted' just makes it all the better.

Cherie Priest is another author I've begun enjoying. I'm working on the steampunk novel Boneshaker. However after looking over the profile of someone I found intriguing, something they said made me pause and think, how many female authors do I read? I'm primarily interested in speculative fiction, but really all I have are Cherie Priest and Poppy Z Bright. Anyway, it's an interesting thought, and I'll take recommendations.

There's also something to be said for the distinct bias against female authors in the publishing world. How many potentially great authors have been turned away on account of their gender. More to ponder.

Finch, Jeff VanDermeers fungal Steam Punk noir, a damn good read if a little odd in it's style.
Jim Butcher's fantasy series Codex Alera. He is also the author of the Dresden Files series which kicks much ass.
Fond of Glen Cook's Black Company books. Slowly getting through the third omnibus, keep running into distractions though, been spacing it out with some H.P. Lovecraft and other books. Working on Jim Butchers "Side Jobs", a compilation of his Dresden Files short stories.

Steven Brust, Steven Erickson, Stephen King, yep, lots of Stephens/Stevens in the literary world. George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. H.P. Lovecraft stories. Old Pulp Fiction sci-fi and fantasies. Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series. Fantasy Novels in General. Just about any graphic novels published by Vertigo. (I.E. Sandman, Lucifer, Preacher, Hellblazer, etc) Fables graphic novel series.
Neil Gaimen books. Gene Wolfe books.
And many many more.

I like a wide variety of movies, I am a movie junkie, not to be confused with a movie snob, unless it's Will Ferrell or Rob Zombie, fuck those guys.

Banshee Chapter is quite the chilling horror film. Just saw Space Pirate Captain Harlock, and while anime is kind of low on my nerd totem pole, Leiji Matsumoto knew his shit.
Personally I think Django Unchained is one of Quentin Tarantino's finest.

The World, Let Me In, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Shawshank Redemption, Kingdom of Heaven, Phonebooth, Event Horizon, The Brother's Bloom, Moulin Rouge, Kick Ass, Legend, Willow, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, 300, 500 Days of Summer, Dark City, Donnie Darko, Equilibrium, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus , Moon, Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream

The six things I could never do without
Hate this part.
Um, my cat,
the written word,
something with which to write words (preferably involving typing, I hold pencils too low and too tight so my hand cramps; I also type faster than I write. A pity shorthand is a dead art.),
dark side.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind wanders, usually to some story or project I plan on or already am working on, sometimes towards random nonsensical things, it tends to like dark comfy corners.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seems up in the air, either in at home, gaming with friends, or out and about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I'm a sex positive dom who is comfortable with traditional and non-traditional relationships. I like to keep things classy so don't worry about "durr, u like 2b spanked?! 1'LL spank u! Hurrhurrhurr!"
You should message me if
If you think dressing up in costumes and going to Mythic Worlds is an awesome idea for a date, let me know.

You're a geek or geek friendly. I need a partner in crime, platonic or otherwise, I have schemes to hatch and shenanigans to pistol whip, and it'd be more fun doing so with a lady-type companions.

You're fond of Kink and would like to know a Dom.

If Cthulhu told you to, that'd be an acceptable answer as well.

If you giggled, laughed, or otherwise thought my not-so-subtle references were amusing.
