My self-summary
So you know how some guys put on this tough exterior to keep people at bay so nobody hurts the sensitive guy inside? I'm kind of the opposite. My exterior is a bit of a clown and a bit of a teddy bear. Beneath that is a more serious, spiritual person of great passions and great curiosity.

I love the strange and the macabre. If you enjoy the Sandman, the Addams Family, and halloween, we're probably on the same wavelength.

I am quirky, nerdy, and good-natured, and I like to think of myself as a Gomez looking for his Morticia. Sadly, I'm not really as suave as that, but it's good to have goals, right?

If it matters to you, I'm ISTP, 420-friendly (but only occasional myself), an OSR hobbyist, and kind of a hippie/goth/punk hybrid.
What I’m doing with my life
For the last year or so, I've taken a break from dating, and that's been good for me. I've been spending more time with my friends and my hobbies. Right now I'm dabbling with tabletop game design and getting back into the habit of writing.

More broadly, I'm still on my journey of self-discovery, finding the person I want to be and working toward being that guy.
I’m really good at
I draw and write pretty well (but I have trouble with plot, which is annoying). I also make some pretty amazing pancakes!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told it's my dimples, or possibly my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like vintage sword & sorcery writers like Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, Leigh Brackett, and Karl Edward Wagner. I like some mindbending scifi like Philip K. Dick's VALIS. I like just about anything written by Greg Rucka, Jen Van Meter, or Sara Vowell.

Movies: Kind of a fantasy/scifi nerd, so things like Legend, Labyrinth, and Willow are always favorites. Also fond of more surreal storytelling, like Scott Pilgrim, L.A. Story, and Lost Highway. I like horror movies, but most of them are pretty disappointing. I'm pretty into movies and have a fairly extensive collection.

Shows: There's so much good stuff right now... Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, Constantine... And then there's all these great shows that are already done, like Breaking Bad, Twin Peaks, Spaced, Farscape... Yay for good shows!

Music: My taste is pretty broad, leaning mostly toward the various descendants of rock music. Not so much pop or country. I've only recently developed an appreciation for rap. Some specific favorites include Tricky, Joy Division, Violent Femmes, Rasputina, and the Sword.

Foods: Spaghetti, buffalo wings, New York-style pizza, and breakfast after midnight.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Daydreams. Human behavior. Stories I'll probably never get around to writing. Tabletop games, and the design of such. Society's ills. Imaginary religions. Whether time has its own geometry.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, Fridays have been my night to myself. Usually that means unwinding with a book, a movie, or something on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Secretly, I'm actually pretty shy. I hide it fairly well in casual conversation, but it gets inconvenient sometimes.
