OK, sooo. I'm 31, and live around Cincinnati. But you already knew that cause it's at the top of the page isn't it. Let's see, something pertinent. Umm, I work as a licensed massage therapist. Love my job. You'd think that it would get me more dates, but you'd be wrong. Whomp whomp. ;) Anyway, it's nice to do something where I get to make people feel better every day and pretty much everyone says thank you. I specialize in chronic pain management. Fibromyalgia, spinal problems, stuff like that.

I read a lot and I'm insatiably curious. Mostly fiction but also some theology (I'm not religious, just interested in what makes people tick), poetry, physics, biology, history, and philosophy. Hobbies are role-playing (table top RPG's, yeah I'm THAT nerdy), video games, writing, and the occasional game of golf in the warmer parts of the year. I like going to plays when I can and movies when I can't. I've recently started volunteering at various artsy endeavors around Cincinnati (Note: if you don't know anything about the Emery Theater in OtR check it out, there's a revitalization project going on there to bring back this beautiful historical venue). Live music's always good, with jazz as a preference. I like singing, and I'm not half bad. I play piano...badly. I enjoy dancing on occasion, and the fact that I likely look like a chimpanzee on ecstasy while engaged in this activity does not diminish my enjoyment of it. I love to try new things too; I'll do anything twice (cause hey, the first time may have been a fluke).

Interested in things like art and theater (prefer classics), physics, genetics, and sociology. I've got a strange and/or morbid sense of humor and love making people laugh.

I like chatting, but I see this site as a way to facilitate connections; until I meet someone in person they may as well be an imaginary friend. I love meeting new people and even if we don't click on a romantic level I like making new friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at an office with a couple other therapists and at a local hospital as a PCA. Trying hard not to let my mind stagnate. Finding culture where and when I can. Making a conscious and constant effort not to be a tool. Attempting to become and remain aware of my own various cognitive biases.
I’m really good at
Massage. Prepping for the ZA. Listening. Imitating myself. Sleeping. Eating brains. Slowly causing the fabric of the universe to fray and unravel. TYPING IN ALL CAPS. Riding my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars, no handlebars. Blinking. Convincing people that dogs can't look up. Remembering the words Klaatu Virata Nicto. Sleeping. Dodging high speed traffic (I have failed at this once and do not intend to repeat the mistake). Hanging from the ceiling by my toes. Checking to see what time it is. Singing in the rain. High fives. Low fives. No fives. Crossing inter-dimensional barriers. Oh, and sleeping.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair is on fire. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! WHY! WHY!
...but honestly I've never really asked. Why don't you tell me?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There's a lot of great art out there and unfortunately I'm never going to have the time to experience it all. This makes me sad, but I'll take what I can get.

A)I'll do authors: Robert Heinlen, Tad Williams, Robin Hobb, John Keats, Stephen King (kinda hit and miss there), Stephen Donaldson, Yeats, China Miéville, Stephen Crane, Carl Sagan, Iain M. Banks, Edgar Allen Poe, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Oscar Wilde, Jim Butcher, Philip K. Dick, Oliver Sacks, Shakespeare, Terry Pratchett, Carl Jung, H.P. Lovecraft, Douglas Adams, C.S. Lewis, Orson Scott Card, George R.R. Martin, David Simon, Richard Dawkins, Robert Jordan (RIP), J.R. Tolkien.

A-2) Comics: Hellblazer, Sandman, Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Lucifer, The Unwritten, Akira, Preacher, Usagi Yojimbo, Transmetropolitan, Kingdom Come, The Dark Knight Returns, Saga, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, The Killing Joke, Powers, The Walking Dead.

B)Movies: Fear & Loathing in Los Vegas, Blade Runner, Army of Darkness, Requiem for a Dream, Mars Attacks!, Jackie Brown, Pi, Fight Club, Ghost in the Shell, Vertigo, The Red Violin, Se7en, Shawn of the Dead, The Silence of the Lambs, Alien, Harvey, Memento, 12 Monkeys, Brazil, A Fish Called Wanda, Thank You For Smoking, Dawn of the Dead, In the Mouth of Madness, Princess Mononoke (and other Studio Ghibli stuff) Event Horizon, The Thing, LOTR, Murder by Death, MUPPETS!!!, Star Wars (the old ones, the prequels and constant fiddling with the original trilogy annoy me to no end; fuck you George Lucas. What was it about creating something that millions of people loved that made you decide it needed to be changed?), The Departed, Seven Samurai, Yojimbo, Psycho, The Dark Crystal, The Princess Bride.
Horror tends to be my favorite genre.

B-2)Series: Cowboy Bebop, The Wire, Venture Bros., Metalocalypse, Six Feet Under, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Game of Thrones, Archer, Berserk, Robot Chicken, The Shield, ReGenesis, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, MPFC (Monty Python's Flying Circus...although I don't know why I just abbreviated that if I was going to spell it out afterwords).

B-3) Video games: KotOR, Mass Effect series, Akham Asylum/City, Chrono Trigger/Cross (CT is my #1, I loved everything about this game when it first came out and still do), Final Fantasy 6 (Kefka may be my favorite villain of all time), Final Fantasy Tactics, Super Metroid, Tiger Woods Golf 2005, The Old Republic, Assassin's Creed series, Portal 1 & 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Mega Man, Secret of Mana, Castlevania series (especially Symphony of the Night), Ogre Battle, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Mario Kart, on and on. I should probably be worried about how much of my existence has been spent controlling pixelated avatars but I enjoy it way to much to stress about it.

C)Music: Techno, Rock, Metal, Jazz,& Classical for the most part. Really dig Ben Folds, Tori Amos, Miles Davis, Sounds from the Ground, Juno Reactor, Tool, NIN, Interpol, Gogol Bordello, Guster, Sublime, Pink Floyd, Claude Debussey, A Perfect Circle, Soundgarden, Johnny Cash, Nick Drake, Charles Mingus, Pelican, Placebo, Chopin, Chevelle, Dethklok, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Alice in Chains, The Sword, Led Zepplin, Astral Projection, Deftones, Cake, VAST, Bob Marley, Antonín Dvořák, Vibrosphere, Smashing Pumpkins, STP, Jimmy Hendrix, & tons of other stuff. Music is the sound of the soul, or at least it would be if I had one. Listening to a lot of Prog rock lately.

D)Food: Brrraaaaaiiiinnnnssss...and pretty much everything else. I like to cook. Kitchen alchemy. :)
The six things I could never do without
My hands. My eyes. My tongue. My ears. My nose. And of course...you. Because without you, I have no one to share my sensory input with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of consciousness, perception, and intelligence.
How to train my brain to not constantly be thinking in logical fallacies.
Why someone would get on a dating site and make themselves effectively unapproachable.
How big things are.
How small things are.
How difficult it is to actually conceive of the kinds of spacial differences that make up our reality.
Why humans think they're important.
How bad I am at math despite how much I like physics.
My hands.
Whether or not we possess free will.
Various illnesses, both mental and physical.
The stories we tell ourselves and what they tell us about ourselves.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin. Gaming. Drinking with friends. Figuring out new ways to get into trouble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll give you a few.
I have OCD. This is not a self-diagnosis. It makes me a bit hard to deal with sometimes. I do my best to not let it affect my relationships and I think I'm worth the aggravation, but YMMV.
I try my best to be a good person (and occasionally fail miserably), but I'm not a very NICE person. I tend to be brutally honest.
I have absolutely no game. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing, but it's a true thing.
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

There's not a whole lot that I consider private in my life, which is only semi-conscious on my part. Ask me anything and I'm libel to say the first thing that comes into my mind...apparently someone forgot to install a filter between my brain and my mouth. You know that part of you that's like "I should just keep that to myself?" Yeah, I don't have one of those.
