My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My self-summary, like my self-self, is a work in progress.

J'ai des amis à découvrir et beaucoup de choses à connaître.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to catch up with it.

Increasingly: going uphill, followed by coming back down. Which now I've written it out seems rather a strangely futile pastime. But the tops of hills are a good place to be, even if only temporarily.

Some favourites on a youtube playlist (some NSFW)

All of the musics:

I also play bass guitar (or at least am getting back into playing more after a long break following the 3 years I spent studying it at college)

Movies & TV: everything from the sacred to the mundane, or to give examples - L'Albero degli zoccoli to Charlies Angels, or Eureka to, ermmm... Eureka (first by Shinji Aoyama, second the TV series). Recent TV: Wonderfalls, Party Down, Carnivale, Undeclared, Monk, The Middleman, The Lost Room, Eerie, Indiana, The Powers That Be.

Currently Reading:

Various computer/programming books.
Dodger - Pratchett.
Flow (the classic work on how to achieve happiness) - Mihaly Csikcszentmihalyi
How to repair everything electronic - Michael Jay Geier
Some others..

Some keyword soup so OKC will stop bugging me about adding interests:

diggers levellers people's history SOUND bottom up history social history sociology anthropology psychology philosophy general semantics anarchism radical democracy investigation research knowledge programming complexity theory simplicity praxis amusing potatoes the art of science the science of art FURY ironic potatoes post-ironic potatoes amour fou immanentising the eschaton nuance duende fado things other than creating arbitrary length lists of putative passions, full of sound and fury, but signifying nothing mathematics, with or without tea

Food: I cook passionately and erratically, with combination and experimentation. A slight bias toward comfort food (pot roasts and casseroles rather than haute cuisine). For eating I prefer simple, and have a stock of pot noodles for when I am cooking for others and it turns out too froofy for myself.

I like dark rich red wines with Fado, white chocolate heavy on the vanilla. Sometimes white wine for silliness, sometimes 137% dark chocolate to taste the sweet abyss that lurks behind the curtain. Porters that taste like a long forgotten funeral shroud with a story so melancholy it's banned in Mississippi, or pale ales that taste of chainsaws. Failing the above then food.

Also better living via yeast... whether it be turning flour into bread, or fruit juice into drinkable fruit juice.

More importantly: my favourite text editor is Vim, although I mostly use Eclipse/Aptana because of Integration. I love the look of Sublime Text 2, and that command+p thing is pure dead yummy.

UPDATE: I now use sublime text pretty much exclusively.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.





I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The necessarily flawed character of detectives and discoverers.

What it is to be: --

Life (and other stories by the same author) as an optimisation problem.

How most effectively may, to quote that most renowned of philosophers, I try to be my best. How to harmonise the mind / body duality : integrating such concepts (the truth beneath the buzzwords), and disciplines as mindfulness, flow, lean, slack, agile, peak experience, martial arts, and the best of modern pedagogy into a coherent whole. A plan to come together (I love it when one does) . How to become fully emotionally self-aware: letting the petty mind-killer emotions pass through me, while embracing and revelling gleefully in the positive. How to live with morality, compassion and compersion: to love all, trust a few, and do wrong to none. To be the answer of the riddle: "how does one hold the songbird without stifling its song...? ...Become the sky."

Also ducks. What are they thinking? Are they planning something?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

I don't believe in Magic.

I don't believe in the necessity of Magic.

I think we are probably better off without it (for the most part)

Life is magic enough.

(I do believe that it is often good that other people do believe in magic: I won't try and steal your unicorns and turn them into dust).
