My self-summary
Doing this OKCupid thing with a little trepidation. Applauding the fact that you're doing it too, despite probably having to dodge the unsolicited anatomy lessons and bait-and-switches. Relevant song lyrics: "Manchild" by tuneyards.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a research scientist on the molecular nature of lifestyle diseases, and enjoying it immensely.
I’m really good at
Making you think.
Playing devil's advocate.
Resisting most modern societal blandishments.
The first things people usually notice about me
Um, well you'd have to ask them, wouldn't you. Though I have been advised to trumpet my non-douchey, non-stabby, non-rapey, and non-thinking-I-deserve-a-medal-for-being-that-way credentials here. So, consider them trumpeted 8-\
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pynchon, Heller, Kerouac, Salinger, Steinbeck. Big, expansive 20th century American Literature. Lots of nonfiction too.
Film: The Young Poisoner's Handbook, Primer, Alien, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, most Kubrick, most P.T. Anderson, most Aronofsky, some Lynch.
TV: News, Media Watch
Music: Current faves include St. Vincent (amazing live!), tUnE-yArDs, Owen Pallett, Swans, Mac DeMarco. Love Tame Impala and Beach House. When in a more sentimental funk I opt for Joni Mitchell or Laura Nyro.
Food: Most French and German cuisine
The six things I could never do without
Eh, I'm trying to do this without the hackneyed "family, friends, a glass of wine and a good book". Maslow's hierarchy of needs had 6 levels, didn't it?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to describe the world without using grandiloquent statements. And how to avoid using words that imply self-aggrandizement. Still working on that one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Socialising with friends if out, cooking a casserole or reading a book if in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't do it often, but I have about a 50% publish rate when I write letters to the Sydney Morning Herald, usually in response to someone who is wrong. It's a catharsis of sorts (and a socially-sanctioned way to combat stupid ideas without being too much of a tool or ideologue myself).
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You want to sit next to me on the rollercoaster, so we can both enjoy the view of this theme park.
