I'm generally quiet, calm, thoughtful, and courteous, though I think too reserved to be "friendly". When I'm around people I feel more comfortable with, I can be extremely goofy, I enjoy letting my weirdness show. I don't want to describe myself as a "nice guy" (I find it to be a loaded term, and most gentleman who call themselves nice are being manipulative, in my skewed personal experience), but I'm fairly empathetic, and generally care about people. I've recently begun exploring writing on a deeper level, and discovering that it's something I find truly enjoyable and fulfilling. I have a lot of big ideas regarding the future of the human race, and lots of ideas for stories.
I'm very much a nerd in my interests, I've been known to enjoy table top rpg's like Dungeons and Dragons (and a few others). I enjoy a few different series of anime, and I research odd and eclectic topics online.
Oh yeah, apparently I'm really arrogant. As if the tone of this profile wasn't enough to illustrate that. Thanks for bringing that up, OkCupid. Tied to that is what I'd say is my biggest flaw, or at least the flaw where my other flaws come from, my lack of self esteem. Looking through profiles on this site, I find myself thinking that I'm not good enough for these people, and I realize what a big problem that is. As you might imagine, this makes me somewhat shy about approaching people, so feel free to make the first move if you're interested.
For those of you who are interested in this sort of thing, my Myers Briggs personality type is INFJ (Just baaaarely edging out INFP), and my Enneagram is 4 wing 5.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to work, going to school, dicking around on the internet, and trying to focus on my writing. Occaisionally checking up on okcupid to see if love will find its way into my life. *rests his chin on his hand and sighs dreamily*
I’m really good at
I'm funny, sincere, caring, empathetic, imaginative/creative. I'm a decent writer and guitarist (I taught myself to play). I can mimic quite a few different voices, and loudly making outlandish remarks to my roommate when we go grocery shopping is a favorite pastime of mine. I'm also really good at teaching robots to love. Also blathering like a lunatic any time I'm given something to say.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people notice would be my height, then if I open my
mouth to speak, how deep my voice is. If you can pull yourself away
from the sultry seductive tone of my voice long enough to hear what
I'm saying, you'll notice my attempts at humor, and get the
impression of intelligence (Who can say if it's real or not?).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are a lot. I like A Song of Ice and Fire, the Dark Tower,
Clive Barker horror stories, H.P. Lovecraft, some Dickens, some
Kafka (the meditations remind me of my life, and The Penal Colony
is very good).
For movies, I believe I've seen around 85 or so of some list of 100
films to see before you die. I like Alien, Aliens, Terminator 2,
Hellraiser, Candyman, The Shining, Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars
(not as much with the prequels), some Star Trek movies, most if not
all Tarantino films, Antichrist and Melancholia by Lars Von Trier,
The Neverending Story, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Legend, The
Director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven, Prometheus (I enjoy the
concepts it explores), and countless others I simply can't remember
at the moment (If you name it, I'll tell you if I've seen
As for music, mostly classic and alternative rock, some classical
and jazz as well. I'd name bands, but there are so many.
I like game of thrones, various comedy shows, and certain
Videogames, I like a lot of them so I'll just name a few. I really
enjoy Skyrim, Legend Of Zelda Majora's Mask, Nier, Castlevania,
Fallout 3, Drakengard and Megaman 2. Also Shadow of the Colossus
and Ico, just played them recently. Awesome.
For Anime, my first great love is Cowboy Bebop, I like Trigun,
Samurai Champloo, Berserk, FLCL, several of the Gundam series (I
love Turn A and Unicorn), Code Geass (but just the first season),
Heat Guy J, Hellsing, and a few others I can't call to mind.
The six things I could never do without
Ah yes, good ol' SHITIC.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The human condition, death, life, the future, suffering, love, growth, dreams, and sex. I also wonder what type of character I would be if this world were a work of fiction, and I think I could make a likable protagonist, or a compelling villain.
Also thinking that human beings are unique among organic life in their capacity for suffering, and that maybe the best way to tell the universe to go fuck itself is to find some measure of happiness and fulfillment.
Sometimes I worry about going crazy, and wonder if I'm experience same reality as everyone else. I spend a lot of time fighting off despair in the face of metaphysical difficulties.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure I have a typical Friday night. I suppose I'm either reading, writing, hanging out with my roommate, watching a movie, spontaneously deciding to go wander around town in the dark for a few hours, etc. Most likely staring at my computer screen and masturbating will be a highlight of the evening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Haven't I shared enough, OkCupid? I'm generally pretty open and honest, I don't have any deep dark secrets. If you're curious about anything, you have but to ask. I suppose I do harbor some pretty upsetting thoughts.
Sir Brock is what one of my teachers called me in high school, if you're curious as to the origin of my username.
