I'm kind of strange (in a good way, I hope), though I think I'm also fairly normal at the same time. I don't really have goals that are typical of most people, so it can be more difficult to find compatible people. Might as well try here.
My ideal job in life would be to be a writer for the Onion. Alas, I'm not usually clever enough on my own unless I have other people to bounce funny ideas off of, although I have my moments.
I'm an artistic and kind of hyper-intellectual type of person who is always working on various projects and reading 3 or 4 books at the same time. (I exhaust myself intellectually often, I must admit. It would be nice to take a break from these considerations.) I don't like wasting time on things that aren't important, but I also love good humor and to laugh and have fun. I also like to write in very vague generalities.
What I’m doing with my life
Ask and ye shall know.
I’m really good at
Ah...this is a very humble question designed to showcase one's humility I see.
I won't presume to speak on a subject matter on which only others may speak of. I don't wish to be a self-deceiver or braggart about things which I may be wrong about.
In other words...I'm good at avoiding questions.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sexy, prefrontal cortex. (Although my cerebellum ain't bad.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Blank Slate, Wheel of Time series, tons of philosophy books (especially of the continental variety) and psychology/social science books.
I don't really like many movies these days, especially those standard plot-driven ones. I prefer movies like The Fountain, I Heart Huckabees, The Tree of Life, etc.
I'm pretty specific in my music tastes, specifically of the "post-rock/post-metal" genre. Bands like Tool, Isis, Cult of Luna, as well as classic mid-90s bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Six is sort of an arbitrary number, isn't it? And there is
something about the phrasing of this prompt that is awkward to
me...anyone else notice that? (By the way, isn't it funny how the
word "awkward" is itself kind of awkward?)
I guess going by my response above, one thing I can't go without is
questioning things. As I'm getting bored with this question, I will
now proceed to ignore it and move on.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, love, pain, politics, possibilities, constraints,
social negotiations, language, human psychology, religion,
On a typical Friday night I am
Hunting for alligators. Or is it crocodiles? I always get the two confused with each other...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Admitting a private thing in public by definition makes it not
private anymore, and therefore this prompt is contradictory.
And yes...I'm very fun at parties with this analytical attitude.
You should message me if
I love massages! Oh, wait...
