Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not actually orange.
My hair changes colors...usually white to dirty blond, but
sometimes funkier things, so long as it look good.
I'm open to most new experiences.
My tastes are highly eclectic and selective...but that doesn't mean
I dislike things that are positively awful. I can be a bit of a
goofball, but that doesn't mean I'm not an adult.
I am a tea snob...no really.
I'm not looking for my future wife/husband/whatever. I'm looking
for people who want to have a date...and if that goes well, maybe
another date...and continue in said fashion until we figure out if
our dates are actually romantic, or are born of enjoying hanging
out with each other...and then pursuing either of those to their
logical end (both of which probably involve helping the other
person bury a body somewhere).
You don't need to be a perfect match...just someone who wants to
have a conversation and see if we stimulate each other in exciting
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working and creating. Writing music, working in theater, directing,
conducting, and singing (mainly singing).
I'm a composer, singer, and all around
musician/actor/performer/music director. I *used* to be a software
engineer in another life. Though I still do IT as a day job.
I recently got back from being music director for a play that ran
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing, thinking, philosophizing, sounding like I know what I'm
talking about when I have no clue, and I'm better at most things
than I give myself credit for. I'm just as good at
self-aggrandizement as I am at self-doubt.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair and my eyes, after that it's my sense of humor.
I laugh very easily.
I have a love of the weird and absurd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Blade Runner, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Evangelion,
Texhnolyze, Death Note, Lost in Translation. Dr. Horrible, I <3
Huckabees, Run Lola Run....to name a few.
Twin Peaks is the best thing ever produced on television, but The
League of Gentlemen is a close second (no, not the League of
Extraordinary Gentlemen). The Doctor is one of my absolute favorite
Music: Anything from Chopin to Jacques Brel to Sisters of Mercy to
Nick Cave. If I have a favorite album, it's probably Bowie's
Outside, maybe The Fragile from Nine Inch Nails, but really it
could be a lot of different things. There used to be a poster of
Nick Cave on my bedroom door if that says anything. The Cure, Early
Ministry, EBM...I grew up immersed in goth-industrial
Books: psychological, weird fantasy, Philosophical Science Fiction.
My favorite book is Neuromancer, but my favorite author is Philip
K. Dick, and all I read lately is China Miéville. Hmmm...Dune is a
good book. So is The End of the Affair by Graham Greene. House of
Leaves is brilliant. John Dies at The End.
Food - don't make me eat feta or grape leaves. I love to cook but
not for myself.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pianos to bang on (quite literally, I can't play the damn things to
save my life, try as I may), Words to chew, late night walks,
incessant flirting, rain and fog, you'll have to talk to me to find
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything...why everything sucks...why kids need to get off my
lawn even though I don't have one...why I don't have a third arm,
or maybe a set of horns, or a prehensile tail and how very
disappointing that is...why I have to go to work tomorrow...why I
can't get that damn motive out of my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either going crazy trying to find people to hang out with, or I'm
sucked into my computer or a film or book and need the world to get
out of my space.
I guess I might be practicing guitar too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There is VERY little I keep private about myself. I don't really
believe in adhering too much to standard social boundaries that
have no actual basis in logic.
