My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello!
My name is Sam, and to be frank, I'm a geek for what humans do (having studied Anthropology at University), and love analysing and discussing pretty much anything; history, music, films, tv, 'art', architecture, politics, religion, science etc etc.

However, being a minor league misanthrope, I may be the only person who enjoys the company of, and admires the plight of, Seagulls (a consequence of living in Aberdeen).

I'm a fairly affectionate type, and despite my heavy headed theory thinking I like to be silly; finding the fun in most anything. I prefer to mornings rocking out in my kitchen listening to music of questionable quality whilst making French toast.

More casually, you could say I'm a nerd (if you play the identity name game)- I love sci-fi, Lovecraft and games (PC, board & role playing). Or to put it another, more high-felutin', way I am fascinated by human creativity and imagination. I also have a love of bad movies full of terrible writing and hammy acting. For similar reasons I have a guilty pleasure in watching bad music videos with good company.

Relationship wise, I am non-possessive & non prescriptive; people are fluid, and so should be their relationships. Further, relationships shouldn't be defined by the sex that that is (or is not) had. So I am pro-polyamorory, though it is not a demand on my part. Kink wise, I lean towards dom'.

Politics wise, I am an anarcho-commie, feminist (ally), internationally (anti-nationalist-y) & environmentally minded fellow, trying to reconcile my more technocratic ideas with the above without falling into the pitfalls of vangardism; Power is a tricky thing.

TL;DR- I'm a people nerd out for adventure, intellectual stimulation, new experiences in hopes of being the cause of some change for the good in the world. All hopefully with someone to share the journey.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Will let you know when I do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Abstract theoretical thinking, reflexivity, honest & empathetic communication, and justifying the eating of ice cream in any climate or of cake in any situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"... in the darkness was the gigantic, blasphemous form of a black thing not wholly ape and not wholly insect. Its hide hung loosely upon its frame, and its rugose, dead-eyed rudiment of a head swayed drunkenly from side to side. Its fore paws were extended, with talons spread wide, and its whole body was taut with murderous malignity despite its utter lack of facial expression."

Or so I have come to conclude from the noiseless screaming and jibbering horror.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Right- let's itemise this:
Academia- "A History of Civilisations" by Fernand Braudel, "Fear of Freedom" by Erich Fromm, "Female Power and Male Dominance" by Peggy Sanday, "The Seed and the Soil" by Carol Delaney and “Searching for "voices": Feminism, Anthropology, and the Global Debate over Female Genital operations” by Christine Walley each had a formative impact on my thinking- and for that I love them.

In the world of fiction however “The Death of Grass" by John Christopher is possibly my favorite book to date. Also (hipster note), whilst all the cool kids were reading Harry Potter, I was reading 'A Song of Ice and Fire' aka 'A Game of Thrones' by G.R.R. Martin; the teenage me did have a bit of a nerdgasm over the HBO series. Also really getting into Chaucer, though that doesn't mean I understand it all: sounds/reads pretty none the less.

Films- The Count of Monte Christo with Richard Chamberlain as Edmond. By no means a perfect film, but for reasons I have yet to discern this particular telling of a classic story of revenge has a special place in my cinematic affection- and as such I would say is the only film worth mentioning as all my other favored films have clear reasons (e.g. Flash Gordon; nostalgia, costume design and a sound track by Queen, or Brazil; dystopia, social commentary, that ending.)

Music- Ever shifting, but the one band that has stuck since my otherwise lamentable moody teenage years is Queens of the Stone Age. Sounds of the moment however; Amon Tobin, Alt-J, Future of the Left, Justice, Yeasayer, Animal Collective, DELS, Andrew Jackson Jihad, and Sufjan Stephens. I always have an ear out for new things, so feel free to make suggestions- t'would be appreciated.

Food- The delicious kind. Have maintained a sweet tooth all my years, but presently Wagamamas has become something of a comfort food; will take any opportunity to eat there.

Also- I dig animation, but I love Steven Universe: I have a talent crush on Rebbeca Sugar.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
'could never' seems a little unrealistic, but I 'would rather never' do without:
Comrades
Access to culture to critique,
Silly conversation
Stimulating conversation
Sweet things
Things to appreciate & wonder at.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Geeky shit'- usually using my background in Anthropology to think up world in which to set RPG's (currently a Sci-fi).

Also I'm prone to odd fleeting fascinations (usually historical, currently the War of the Roses).

I would say I spend a great deal of time thinking profound philosophical and political ideas, but such ain't true. I have idea's and they aren't to be improved by being rattled around my echo chamber- that's what I need you for.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching Steven Universe, as it is actually the best damn show at making me feel human.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm currently dealing with depression, stemming from a obsessive compulsive disorder, which sucks pretty bad and is a bigger deal that I would like.
