My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I spend my life trying to balance practical projects with far-fetched day dreams, both of which far outpace my available time and resources. Lately my focus has been on blackwork/dotwork design.

I prefer friends with different ideas and perspectives; they always introduce me to things I would have otherwise never known, and intellectual diversity has always been a more successful strategy for survival.

I am constantly seeking out new information and challenging/re-evaluating my own ideas (which means my ideas change regularly.) I whole-heartedly accept that happiness, accomplishment and belonging are only meaningful when compared to complete misery, frustration and loneliness. Because of this I relate more easily to others who have struggled in life as well, voluntarily or otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After spending nearly 5 years designing and building truck-to-RV conversions for full-time nomadic living, I'm settling down in Depot Town and moving on with other interests. This has become the story of my life; I like being overly passionate and fully dedicated to radical projects, and having the freedom to abandon those projects when they no longer interest me, regardless of their success. Have you seen Adaptation? I'm John Laroche.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My personality compels me to be a polymath. I'm usually successful at bringing my ideas to life.

I'm a confident person and feel that with enough research and interest I could be good at just about anything. I'm good at acquiring new information/skills without outside direction.

I think my most valuable skill (that I'm constantly working at) is being able to pragmatically consider radical ideas without dismissing them based on some preconceived notion I identify with; in fact, I seek these ideas out, as inspiration for my "cultural dissociation exercises." There is little growth to be had without self-sacrifice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an honest person; I want to connect with people in an honest, personal way. I'm not interested in social posturing.

I can talk for hours. Sorry.

Sometimes I look angry/upset, but I'm just thinking.

Apparently, I tend to give mixed messages when meeting someone new that I'm interested in. Boundaries and respect are very important to me, so this is just me being cautious until I'm certain where those boundaries are. Especially with women, this might come across at times as "polite" or "distant." I'm a very assertive male, but I don't believe women want to be demeaned or bullied into contact with a stranger. I guess some do, but they're not for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some of my favourite authors are Daniel Quinn, J. Krishnamurti, Ran Prieur, Jacque Fresco, Ragnar Benson and Uncle Fester. I mainly read textbooks and technical manuals. TJ Bass was my favourite author when I was younger.

I've watched a lot of documentaries. As for movies, some of my favourites are The Fountain, The Life Aquatic, Blueberry, The Prestige, Dark City, Watchmen, Jesus' Son, Dune, Adaptation, V for Vendetta, City of God, A Scanner Darkly, Baraka, and Waking Life. Most TV shows I watch are purely to pass the time, but I really liked Breaking Bad.

I listen to a wide variety of music: GY!BE, Tool, Listener, Gorillaz, Elliot Smith, Iron and Wine, Lera Lynn, Glenn Gould, Sublime, most flamenco puro, Theory in Practice, Fiona Apple, Immortal Technique, Spiral Architect, The Black Keys, Alice in Chains, Atheist, James Brown, Beck, Alfredo Marcucci, Tijuana Brass, The Mars Volta, Vince Guaraldi, Yann Tiersen, Opeth, Johnny Cash ...

I eat a strict diet for personal health reasons. I usually avoid restaurants because I dislike being waited on.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
It seems to me most people equate "good" with "comfortable/familiar" and "bad" with "uncomfortable." I feel exactly the opposite. Discomfort encourages progress and transformation. It's important to me to periodically experience the shock of removing comforts from my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How bizarre and alien this cosmic reality is. We're truly lucky to witness it, especially during the golden years.

Inter-personal communication skills, anthropology, fractal geometry, voice acting, public speaking, self-knowledge, degrees of freedom and choice, singing, health and nutrition, epigenesis, guerrilla permaculture, busking, dumpster diving, retirement, mycology, tattoos, vandalism, forges, progressive shelter, musical counterpoint, revolution, biology, distilling alcohol, electromagnetism, sensory deprivation tanks, chemical extractions, water filtration, E-prime, reality tunnels, social engineering, guitar technique, lucid dreaming, game rules, and what the Earth was like/will be like a billion years from now.

I also reflexively repeat melodies I hear like a parrot.

It's difficult to turn all this off, but like a whale I occasionally come up for air and do something social instead.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dreaming of another life that's passing by, unlived.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It would be wonderful to live long enough to see the birth of a post-civilized world. Also, I'm actually an android. Fair warning.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we would like each other, and/or you would like to exchange information/skills. I love teaching people, almost as much as I love learning something new.

I'm just hoping to make some new friends with similar (or complimentary) interests. I say "just friends" but that's slightly misleading; friends would be great, but what I'm really looking for are more (probably platonic) life partners--people who want to join forces. Humans are social animals that need to belong to a tribe, but we live in a society that romanticizes selfishness, competition, hoarding and isolation. I simply want to be part of a more relevant social environment. I want relationships with real depth, useful bonds that are measured by their degree of functional mutual support instead of personal entertainment value.
