My self-summary
You know, I get bored, reading a lot of profiles. "I like travel, and wine, and conversation, and other things that utterly fail to distinguish me from anyone else." It's easy to judge, but then I looked at my own profile, and wondered, is MY profile boring? And you know, I think it was. However, at the very least it didn't reference a love of IPAs. Why, people? Why go for a beer that is just like a weakly alcoholic hop tea? If I want to drink something horrifically bitter, I'll have some coffee, and add cream and sugar beforehand.

So, my life is this weird jumble of doing cool things and creating and being lazy and still trying to figure out what I wanna be when I grow up. I do entirely too much navel-gazing, not nearly enough drinking, a lot of thinking about exercise, and otherwise maximize my free time by wasting it. I'm a music-maker, a writer, a singer. Play some keys, some violin (kinda). I care very much about being good and am rather spiritual. And now I'm here, searching for that oh-so-elusive companionship.

Also, while my friends are usually geekier than me, I do play a role playing game every Sunday. Make of that what you will.
What I’m doing with my life
In the meantime, I'm a writer of stories, songs, and cheap little informational articles. Only that last one pays. I also am an artist and actually make some money off of graphic art. Also magic. Mostly that. Not the stage kind.
I’m really good at
Writing, analysis, introspection, wit when I'm in the mood. I have a superpower where, once I decide I really should change something about myself, I change. In all honesty, I can't take that much credit; despite my lack of material resources, I live a blessed life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm curly with an Abram beard. Also hefty, although I'm getting steadily less so.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Hobbit, anything by HP Lovecraft, animal encyclopedias, the Power of Now, the Tao Te Ching.

Movies: Dagon. Up. If Up doesn't make you weepy, you are at least a little dead inside.

Music: Anything but twangy country, gangster rap and that sort of metal that's all screaming. I am particularly fond of 90s era metal/rock/grunge ("Glycerine" is a favorite), industrial, some cheesy '80s pop (love "King of Wishful Thinking"), and some southern rock.

Food: Japanese (particularly sushi or sashimi), Indian (lamb vindaloo is my favorite), Greek (lamb shank om nom nom), German from time to time.
The six things I could never do without
My bicycle. If it had boobs, I wouldn't even be on here.
Play (take it how you like)
Vast quantities of information
My friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making the most out of life, science, the nature of the universe and the self, books I'm writing. Wondering how to live without being a wage slave.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find several conspiracy and alternative scientific theories plausible.
You should message me if
Really, I'm looking for other occult/mystically minded folk for conversation and possibly crazy tantric/otherwise energetic interactions of an intimate variety. It would be rad to have more people to talk and work with on this stuff. Bonus points if you can appreciate the use of the word, "rad".

I am a relationship anarchist. This is not a religious text for me, but it sums up the idea well enough:

Also, you should actually message me if you're going to message me. I get "likes" from time to time, but I'm not on A-List and I don't plan on paying for it, so if you want me to know you like me, you at least have to say "hi". I've sent a lot of messages, it's really not that bad :P
