About Me: A hybrid born of phrenological engineering in a lab filled with moldy alchemical tomes and rabid mites... wait, no, that's not right. I'm a human being. I have faults and strengths, I have dreams and fears. In terms of an origin story, I was raised an army brat, dropped out of college after a year, found myself drifting from job to job, moved to Humboldt because I had some family here and have been living like a mountainous hermit ever since.

I work for myself. Working for other people. If that makes sense. Primarily I am a landscaper, but since I moved to the country, I am also a ditch digger, wood cutter/splitter, plumber, junior carpenter, and pancake. Wait, no, not pancake. More or less I'm a basic handy-man slash general labor yutz for a few older families in my area.

I once owned my own bowling ball, even though I rarely ever bowl and I'm pretty horrible at it. I enjoy it, but I'm shit, really. I named him Prince. Prince the Purple Bowling Ball. I neglected him and now he is gone. I learned a lot about having inanimate objects as pets, though, and felt the experience helped me grow as a human being. Oh Prince the Purple Bowling Ball. How I miss you.

I'm on OKCupid because I live on a mountain and while I love the rural setting and the picturesque views, there aren't a lot of folks my age around here. I'd like to meet people. If we hit it off, that's great, if not, that's cool too. But I do want to *meet* people. I'm willing to drive a decent ways to meet you, because frankly, if I wasn't, I'd never meet anybody.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job. I have a home.

I'm constantly making an effort to be creative in some way. I write, I play a bass guitar and sing, (I'm not great at either, but I enjoy it) and I occasionally even sketch-a-doodle. I'd like to turn that first hobby into something that pays. I seem to have trouble finishing the things I start, though.

Also... meh, I'll get back to this.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Not sorting my clothes when I do laundry.

2. Eating foods.

3. Singing to myself loudly in the car, then pretending I'm not the moment I think someone might see me.

4. Not folding my clothes after I do laundry

5. Being kind to waitstaff. I've been there. Solidarity my waitstaff brethren! One day we shall rise and overthrow our customers!

6. Also, I play bass guitar fairly decently and putz around with an electric guitar and spend a lot of my spare time making post-punkish style music. Can't say I'm good, or even listenable, but I really enjoy the process.

Anyone care to contribute?

The first thing I noticed about Mote was that he was friendly. --TestTakerX

My first impression of Mote was that he provided a voice of calm reason in heated... discussions, even when his was the only dissenting one. And that no matter how heated, the others always listened to and respected him. So I was initially impressed with his courage and his values. The more I get to know him, the more I find to be impressed by. He's a delightful conversationalist and wonderful friend. JoyfulParadox

Mote loves to write and it's a darned good thing for the rest of us because he's pretty good at it. You wouldn't notice it, of course, when meeting him. However, if you met him, the wry sense of humor that sparkles... would be evident. (Yes, Mote, sparkles - you make people grin and you have a fan club). He's probably not wearing a kilt though. Dammit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A. Science Fiction, Fantasy, Suspense, etc. I love fiction in general, Fav authors at the moment: walter jon williams, vernor vinge, john varley, larry niven and lots of bracketed random other writers.B. Movies: I like weird movies, classic movies, pretentious foreign films,samurai flicks and so forth. I can pretty much enjoy most anything, movie-wise. With the exception of gangster movies (Including godfather and Scarface and other "classics") which for some reason hold no interest to me whatsoever.C. Music:I admit I have very particular tastes in music. I am something of a music snob, though I try to be more open. In general, I have very broad, yet specific likes. Anything from classic rock- the animals, beatles, pink floyd, creedence, etc to early 80's goth-rock and punk- bauhaus and souixsie and the banshees, joy division, the clash, the smiths (not morrisey though) to more modern stuff like: yeah yeah yeahs, fever ray, first aid kit, magneta lane , bomba estereo, blonde redhead, vampire weekend, actually, scratch Vampire Weekend, I think. They've gotten a bit too cutesy and obnoxiously clever. Lets not forget the best band ever I hate these stupid lists who played back-up to Gwar once, but then disbanded because of creative differences.D. Foods: I generally like it in direct proportion to its unhealthiness. The more unhealthy, the more I gotta have it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Imagination

2. Laughter


4. Food, Air, etc. HA! I am now the 93,562nd 'okcupid' user to list 'air.' I should win a prize. WHERE'S MY PRIZE?

5. Life Experiences

6. Happiness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I want to go with my mid-life crisis. I'm closing in on forty, so I need to start preparing. I was thinking sports car and a 20 year old girlfriend, but that's so 1980's mid-life crisis. Maybe instead I'll invest all my money in Bitcoins or some other stupid trend that promises to pay off big in the short term. But then I'll get greedy and it will crash and I'll end up destitute and selling my body for pasta. But not that cheap store brand pasta. That high dollar Annie's Mac and Cheese shit. A man has his standards.

UPDATE: I AM 40 I am not ready! Nooo! Make it go back! Oh, fuck it. Feels a lot like 39.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching the paint dry and accidentally getting high off the fumes, then getting sick and being rushed to the hospital, where I might meet a cute nurse and then ruin my chances with her by throwing up on her shoes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoy the company of women more than the company of men. Risqué, aint I? (look I used that little e with the dashy! Fancy!)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You are capable of operating your keyboard.
2. Can think of something to talk about. If not- I suggest cookies as a topic.
3. Do now/have once/will have ever had the use of a time machine.
4. Want to give me a million dollars. Or any amount of money, really.
5. Don't mind physically meeting sooner or later.

Really, I'd love to meet a local(ish) or two to just hang out with from time to time.

I like weird people. I like tolerant people. I like sarcasm and snark, but sparingly... Too much too often is too negative. I like well balanced people- people who have their own beliefs but are willing to explore the motivations behind opposing beliefs. I like people who are introspective yet self-assured.

*I like people who are fully formed individuals and capable of taking care of themselves.*

Also, and I do think I mentioned this, I like cookies.
