My self-summary
Aber zuerst: wenn Du diese Zeile lesen kannst und im Großraum L.A. lebst, würde ich Dich äußerst gern kennenlernen...

Where to start? I'll just kind of shoot from the hip.

In my heart I have always been what some call a geek. I prefer the term "mutation" and I mean that in the most positive sense. It is not something one would recognise by my outward appearance, though. I haven't watched television for over ten years and feel it has only helped to protect my mind from an ongoing assault of ignorance and mediocrity. To not know who Judge Judy is, is a plus in my book. I like to be active but detest any and all organised sporting events. Nothing could be more excruciating than sitting around the big screen watching obscenely overpaid, extra-chromosome steroid abusers chasing a ball back and forth or beating the snot out of each other; well, except maybe going to an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical or having breakfast with a televangelist. On second thought, I believe I'd still prefer the musical along with the risk of having to go on medication afterward before I'd step foot in a stadium…unless there were televangelists and lions. Now that I could go for.

I lived in Germany for many years and speak the language fluently. The current trend of not knowing the difference between "your" and "you're" or "there" and "their" makes me cringe. I love language and words, have great respect for them and I find it very unfortunate that language in the U.S. is in a state of devolution (not unlike everything else). Oh, yes, I do like Devo.

I prefer most any kind of vodka as long as it's not the cheap stuff in a plastic bottle. Becherovka and cola is my secret favourite. A cigarillo and a drink go hand in hand and I say that knowing how it is viewed in the United States. Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying, "It has been my experience that those with no vices have very few virtues." I agree.

I value politeness but can also be curt. I am brash and humble. I'm serious and juvenile, reckless and responsible. I cannot tolerate intolerance and I also know what a contradiction is. While I was brought up in a Christianoid household, I am an anti-theist. I am not a fan of religion as my world is reality-based and I am not one to give into harmful delusions (the fun ones are something else, of course). Animals, the ocean, real food, and travel - yes, I especially like these things. I also like oxygen in my atmosphere but that's just a personal preference. Irreverent to the point of iconoclasm, I can be devilish and unpredictable but all in good fun.

Unknown facts: I wear glasses to read and write, I don't mind peeling the potatoes, I don't find "feminist" a negative term, I don't kill spiders.

That's a very small cross section of what makes me who I am.

I've started way too many sentences with "I".
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
...rote memorisation and...what was the other thing?
The first things people usually notice about me
...I'll have to ask about the next time I run into some people but let me ask you something. What did you notice?

There you go.

I can tell you what makes me unique, though. Three things come to mind off the top of my head; my fingerprints, my retinal pattern, and my genome. There's nothing like them anywhere else. I promise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I truly cannot imagine a complete life without books and I mean real books, musty ones with yellowed pages. Ever since I can recall, I've always had something to read with me and I feel uncomfortable when, in my haste, I forget to take a book along. Cthulhu be praised for smartphones! There is a stack of books at home which I haven't gotten to, yet. Currently, "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer is receiving my attention and the one book that has influenced me more than any other is Orwell's "1984". The last fantasy novel I read was one of Moorcock's Elric stories but that was long ago. When I read fiction, I prefer sci-fi. I love to read. If I had a choice of five books to take with me to a desert island, they would be:

1) complete anthology of Poe's works
2) complete anthology of Lovecraft's works
3) Primitive Wilderness Living & Survival Skills: Naked into the Wilderness
4) The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets
5) Field Guide to Wilderness Medicine

Other authors who have either impressed or influenced me are Theodor Seuss Geisel, Maurice Sendak, Lewis Carroll, A. A. Milne, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Clifford D. Simak, Umberto Eco, Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Kurt Vonnegut, Mark Twain, Arthur Machen, Ramsey Campbell, Albert Camus, Voltaire, Alice Schwarzer, William S. Burroughs, Anthony Burgess, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Franz Kafka, Friedrich Nietzsche, Clive Barker, Rod Serling, Upton Sinclair, Walker Percy, Gore Vidal, J. M. Coetzee, Arundhati Roy, Margaret Atwood, Christopher Hitchens, Yevgeny Zamyatin, Anton Chekhov, Thom Hartmann, Noam Chomsky, Jean-Paul Sartre, Hermann Hesse, Joseph Campbell, Howard Zinn, Gloria Steinem, Naomi Klein, Stephen J. Gould, and many, many more.

Although this all looks very serious, I make sure to season the cerebral with a healthy portion of nonsense. Truth be told, my brain has an endless capacity for it.

Music gives books a very close race and I'll admit to being somewhat elitist about it. I am not nor could I ever be compatible with someone who listens to gospel or Christian metal, for example. On the subject of Christian "metal", how do they manage without using "fuck"? My guess is this music really sucks. If you listen to Daddy Combs or Beyoncé, or if you regularly consume the horrid afterbirths of the "Let Me Be A Star!" shows, the curve of probability representing us coming together is infinitely approaching zero. If you like Aphex Twin and Ministry, well, let's talk!

My musical foundation lies with David Bowie, Joy Division, The Cure, Korn, Peaches, Brian Eno, Robert Fripp, Sex Pistols, Depeche Mode, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath, Justin Bieber, Radiohead, Sigur Rós, Boards of Canada, Björk, The Smiths, and "dozens" more!

...just kidding with the addition of young Master Bieber to the list.

For the past few years I have found myself listening to more and more Trip Hop. I love Cinéphile, Zero 7, Portishead, Everything but the Girl, and the like. I'd say overall I'm drawn to Indie, as broad as that spectrum is. My most recent purchase was The XX's "Coexist". I love this band. There's some good Downtempo stuff out there; like Mono. While I'm thinking about it, you can add Goldfrapp and Télépopmusik to the list of favourites, as well. As I don't own any hogs to slop in the morning, I've yet to find much use for country. Being forced to choose between seeing and hearing would be most difficult. Sight is the more important sense but to live without music? Hard choice. Ask me again sometime.

While I don't watch any form of commercial TV, I do love films and am a Netflix subscriber. Between that and internet streaming of things like The Daily Show, Colbert Report, or Real Time I can rack up some viewing hours but my life centers in no way around watching "my" shows. The last film I watched that really left an impression was "Ink". Some of my all-time favourites are "Angel Heart", "The Name of the Rose", and "Bladerunner" and I believe several characters from the original Star Trek series were surrogate parents for me at some point in my earlier years (yes, I know - told you I was geeky). I have a PS3 which I use more for BluRay than for gaming. Don't get me wrong, some game franchises have reached a level of sophistication that far surpasses the mind candy being pumped through more mainstream entertainment venues but, on average, I'd say I find only enough time for perhaps 1 to 2 games/year. Life offers so much more...

For news I depend exclusively upon the intertubes. I read various foreign and domestic websites and try to catch Amy Goodman or Thom Hartmann when I can. I'm considering subscribing to the Mike Malloy podcast because I really enjoy him.

One of the best and quickest ways to dip into a different culture is through the food. I love learning about new people and cultures - the equation has a predictable ending, right? Trying things I've never had before is a great way to spend an evening but I cannot really name a particular favourite. Like just about anyone else I like the standard sushi/italian/nebulous asian-fusion fare. Cooking new things is really cool and if they don't work out we can always call out for pizza.
