Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Don't read my profile. I wrote it like 4 years ago & it's not
I take hedonism seriously. I want to drink life from a fire hose. I
want to find my limits and push them. I cherish new experiences,
I'm infatuated with being outside of my comfort zone. I want strong
passions to overload my natural tendency to intellectualize my
feelings. I want to meet people with whom I might explore new
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying to say something simple using at least three times the
amount of words needed by most normal people to express the same
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Science non-fiction & philosophy. Bertrand Russell,
Stephen Pinker, Dan Dennett, Michael Shermer, Jared Diamond,
Jennifer Hecht, Pete Singer.
Voltaire's Candide means a lot to me.
Fiction-wise I love Vonnegut, Tom Robbins, Anthony Burgess, Camus.
Hemmingway's Old Man and the Sea means a lot to me.
Movies: Eraserhead, Dancer in the Dark, Terry Gilliam's Brazil,
Jacob's Ladder, Waking Life, Requiem for a Dream, Pink Floyd's The
Wall, Yodok Stories. You could say that I generally stick to
simple, feel-good movies.
Music: Lately a lot of RJD2, Frank Zappa, The Mountain Goats, and
Woody Guthrie have been on rotation at my house. I need loud music
to keep sane. I have a few hundred records, around 100 gb of mp3's.
I would love to exchange music with you.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The mind-body problem. Humanist ethics. How to improve myself. How
to sublimate my catholic guilt into something useful. How to live
the good life. Social immobility. The problem of evil. The meaning
of life. What my next hiking/biking adventure should be. How to be
a better dad/partner/citizen/sentient being. How I miss being part
of a triad and am afraid I might not find myself within another.
How much I miss playing in a band. How I guess I don't have the
free time for friends anyway. Kink.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Stabbing people with needles. Scrubbing blood off of walls.
Pounding on people's chests. Staying up till 8am Saturday. Washing
my hands 250 times. Trying not to be bothered by the stink of B.O.,
shit, vomit, bleach, or halitosis. Once in a while however, I have
a Friday night off.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My OkC profile is surely a terrible representation of the real me.
