Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Sam, and it is about time I revised/ trimed the fat off
of this profile. So, consider this to be undergoing renovation. And
me too, come to think of it.
Illistrative of my character is the fact that in moving to
Edinburgh my modest backpack carries my clothes, my large suitcase
on the other hand carries books and boardgames.
For now, some bullet points:
-Starting fresh in Edinburgh
-Quite political. Lefty-anarchisty.
-I like a broad spectrum of what folk identify as geeky
-I am a GM of pen-and-paper RPG's, currently looking for a new
group in a new city.
-I am into history, as well as other human esoterica.
-If I could, I would become a full body cyborg.
-I don't think the individual self exists. Ask me about it, I need
to be provoked in to writing this thesis.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Building a new life. Come lend a hand!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
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 of those I meet.

Some illustrative book examples :
"Female Power and Male Dominance: on the origins of sexual
inequality" by Peggy Sanday (from which you might gleen that I am
into Anthropology, Feminism & Marxism).
“The Death of Grass" by John Christopher, 'cus I love fiction about
civilization going over the cliff.
And the Song of Ice and Fire series- I grew up with the series, and
it grew me out of the self indulgent fantasy stuff i read as a
Films wise I am becomming more of a cinephile, though I'd say I was
still a neophyte in that regard. Suffice to say I love watcing
films, al the more so with good company to talk about it with
At the moment, I am mostly listening to Andrew Jackson Jihad, DELS,
and Sufjan Stephens- but I have a nostalgia for metal and a abiding
love for the Queens of the Stone Age.
Also- I love animation, and Steven Universe now has a dedicated
corner in my happy place. 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:
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?
Not that I have a typical just yet, but watching Steven Universe is
a safe bet. Also webcomics!:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Full disclosure: 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.
