I like to play games and no, not of the emotional sort. Ones that contribute to your intelligence- examples include Words with Friends, Soduku, all those brain-training apps (Lumosity/FitBrains), etc.
Also I have developed cat-like reflexes to avoid people touching my hair. Seriously if you reach for it without asking me, I will be mad. Don't. Just don't. I understand that my hair is 'like soooo cool' but I'm not a freakin' petting zoo. And no I don't care if you would let me touch your hair. I don't wanna touch your greasy shit. Unless I do, in which case I would ask first. If I have to explain the politics behind touching a woman of color's hair...well let's just say it'll mostly be my fists doing the 'splaining.
I love all sorts of music but especially music from a time when black people wore Gheri curls and dressed with flair: Mtume, Zapp and Roger, Starpoint, Kool and the Gang, The Time, Mary Jane Girls, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rick James, etc. I have a weakness for dancy hipster bullshit- MIA,Chromeo, Empire of the Sun, Cut Copy, Diplo, Santogold, Crystal Castles Animal Collective, Gang Gang Dance. I love folk, alt/post Country and Americana- Deer tick, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes and old country Patsy Cline, Conway Twitty, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbisonetc. Classic Rock: Led Zepplin, Velvet Underground, The Doors, The Animals, The Turtles. Miles Davis' Bitches Brew changed my life. Sam Cooke is by far my favorite artist. I'll take Motown over the shit they play on the radio any day of the week. But honestly, I will dance my ASS off to the shit they play on the radio, and learn all the words without even realizing it. Also, goth kid music: The Smiths, The Cure, New Order, Joy Divison, music for radicals: Against Me, Fela Kuti, Manu Chao, as well as Disco, Bossa Nova and Dubstep. Also my New Jersey upbringing and obsession with Europe has coalesced into embarrassing enjoyment of fist-pumping electro. I try and deny it...but when that music starts playing I can't help myself! So yes, I do on occasion enjoy house, Tiesto, Calvin Harris and Deadmau5, Avicii, Hardwell, etc. The only reason why I owned up to this is because I assume no one's reading this far. If you are- don't tell anyone about this ok?
I also have a semi-embarrassing devotion to both Bollywood and KPOP. I am semi-obsessed with Aishwarya Rai, Sharuhk Khan Super Junior 2NE1, T-ara, etc. Seriously though- stuff like this:
gives me a huge lady boner.
I'm totally a Movie elitist so I typically list directors, not titles, except for one: TOTAL (FUCKING) RECALL. Yea but besides that: Bergman, Almodovar, Godard, Welles, Fellini, Gondry, Del Toro, Noé. Also the very non-elitist films: Time Bandits, The Warriors, Wet Hot American Summer, Wild at Heart, Blazing Saddles, Orlando, The Edukators, The Apple, The Wiz. Anything with Gael Garcia Bernal (SWOOON) esp The Motorcycle Diaries, Mala Educación. Classics: Singing in the Rain (and just about anything with Gene Kelly in it), Some Like it Hot, The Seventh Seal, Sunset Boulevard. Also, sexy movies: Showgirls (w/ commentary), Shortbus, Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Dreamers. And REALLY scary horror movies- like the kind that make you crap yourself. Especially Asian ones, i.e.- Takashi Miike and Park Chan-wook.
I really value my brain and would not like to see it turn to mush, so I mostly stay away from TV and video games. Although, I do love Mad Men, Community, pretty much anything on Animal Planet, National Geographic Channel or Discovery Science, disturbing medical shows on TLC. I also really love British TV: Skins UK, Misfits, The Inbetweeners. Peep Show, The Mighty Boosh, Black Mirror etc. Also, Louis- if you don't find Louis CK hilarious I dunno.... I just don't know. My latest new mind-numbing obsessions are (like everyone else in the world) Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones. Especially Game of Thrones. I love reading fantasy and just got started on the trilogy. And thanks to the show I've integrated sooo many interesting quotes into my life.
"Hey dude can I borrow 10 bucks?" "Will you pay me back?" (Turns head, smirks) "A Lanester ALWAYS pays her debts."
(Loses keys) "WHERE ARE MAH DRAGONSSSSS?!?!"
Someone eats the last piece of cake "I hope you find someone you truly love...before I take her from you."
"What do you mean you won't help me move anymore?" "Help was not promised, lovely girl. Only death."
"Hey what's up tonight?" "I dunno." "You're the Master of Whisperers. You're supposed to know everything." So on so forth. You get the picture. Yes I am a dork. Ain't no shame in my game (OF THROOOONESSSS).
As for food you can sum it up as such: vegan food, I luuuurrvvvve tofu. And spicy shit. I am a fantastic cook. I'll make some shit you've never heard of before. I especially love Indian and Caribbean food, since it's closest to what I ate growing up. My favorite food is Ital food. If you don't know what that is I suggest you get yourself down to Crown Heights ASAP and walk around until you find an Ital restaurant. It should take you all of 5 seconds.
I like 'exotic' foods- ethiopian, thai, vietnamese, also japanese, pretty much anything except for your all American burger joints and what not. I put exotic in quotes because honestly the 'traditional' American meal is sometimes more foreign to me than what is usually thought of as 'exotic' food. I also love soul food. That's my jam. I hate picky eaters (of course I'm not counting those with dietary/health concerns) but love people who are food conscious!
PHEW! I like a lot of things!
As for things that I hate? Not much, but there is one thing: fucking CUPCAKES. It's not even so much the taste (although I do despise the taste) but the stupid fake ass trendy aura surrounding them. They're just not that good. Pies, tarts, macaroons, shit even Carvel cakes etc are infinitely better. I'm sorry, but if you're a grown ass woman talking about your love of cupcakes I will be tempted to smack the shit outta you. You are not Zooey Dechannel and that infantilizing shit is just not cute. Please just shut up about it and go fucking sew a bird on something or some shit. (DEATH TO TWEE!)
-my glasses or contacts (seriously I'm blind as a bat)
-intellectual stimulation (I likey da smarties)
-animals (really if humans were wiped out and I was left alone with all the animals I would probably be alright with that)
-good food (really this could be all six things)
-mind altering substances (you didn't see this)
Also: exploring the city and meeting strange and interesting people (the best kind). Dancing myself into the closest thing to a religious frenzy I'll ever experience.
I made a Bollywood fanvid featuring a Drake song. Go ahead, ask me about it.
I don't own a working phone (YES for real). I actually hate talking on the phone with an unusual passion so it works out well for me. I have an unactivated iPhone I use with wifi so I can check messages occasionally.
- Ages 23–38
- Near me
- Who are single
- For new friends
- you have an animal companion that wants (or at least is willing to put up with) a new human friend. I must warn you though...I've been compared to Elmira from Tiny Toons in terms of my love of animals.
- you want to teach me something (like a language or a dance or how to drive)
- you think we'd make good drinking (or smoking) buddies/partners in crime/compatriots in a struggle against oppressive forces.
- you wanna play Words with Friends or Hanging with Friends.
Right now I'm really only looking for people who want to be friends and/or just hang. If it blossoms into more, great! But I don't want someone who's going to try and stick their tongue down my throat at the end of the date.
Respect for all sentient life-forms is really important to me, and consuming meat (and dairy for that matter) basically shits on my value system, so it's hard for me to be attracted to anyone that continues to do so. I would only consider going on a date with you if you were in the process of weaning it out. In other words I prefer fellow vegans and vegetarians in the process of becoming vegan.
I drink and enjoy an occasional smoke (NOT cigs!), so I can't really deal with someone who's against or doesn't enjoy either. This may just be a fault of my own, but it's hard for me to bond with someone who refuses to have a drink or toke.
And if you talk about how much you love god in your profile, it's not gonna work out. I'm as hardcore atheist as they come and I don't really like to associate with practicing Xtians.
Wow lots of criteria...and I wonder why I'm still single.
