I’m up for an adventure in genuine connection. I’m easy to cuddle and converse with and have fun finding common ground. Seems like in recent years anyway, I only want full-on sex with someone I’m emotionally bonding with deeply. (There have been some exceptions to this….) For lighthearted fooling around or making out, I'm easy. It's good for its own sake and is a part of exploring the chemistry. And if it doesn’t lead to some LTR, at least we had fun.
In practice, I gravitate towards relationships that tend to be monogamous or monogamish because they're intense, and that takes a lot of time. Even though philosophically there's a lot to like about open relations, and I do have experience with them.
These OKC algorithms are strongly suspect as being dubious. I’ve got to be a very odd one to match. I’m not sure I’m even going to answer too many questions, etc. Don’t want to put too much energy into the online thing this time. So go with your intuition and don't trust the computer!
I’ve had a hand in anarchist agitations and pranks over the last 25 years. Also various educational projects, and actions against war, budget cuts for education, and the general absurdity and screwy priorities of capitalist civilization. We need to get better at these things, obviously.
Getting out into beautiful natural places is essential for me, and I love sharing this experience with others. I've spear-headed a collective land project northwest of Yosemite towards this end. It operates as remote getaway and alternative retreat center of sorts, three hours east of the bay area.
I play clarinet in the Brass Liberation Orchestra, an activist marching band.
Some Books: Letters of Insurgents, by Freddy Perlman; The Man Who Fell In Love with the Moon, by Tom Spanbauer.
Some Films: Themroc (1973), The Sweet Movie (1974), How to Get Ahead in Advertising (1989), Delicatessen (1991), Libertarias (1996), Sin Noticias De Dios (2001).
I’ve been collecting unusual films and I have about 160 of them. Most I’ve not seen yet.
Some music: I'm obsessed with punk female vocalists. I love a lot of diverse music and have a pretty huge collection, over 200 GB of Funk, Afrobeat, punk, ska, hip hop, Japanoise, folk, experimental, jazz, free improv, old anarchist songs, blues, some electronic, Mexican rock, metal, rock, a ton of ethnic stuff, including over 8 GB of Roma & Flamenco, old Angolan pop, The Oriental Brothers (from eastern Nigeria), and Congotronics.
I play clarinet with a marching band (see above).
Some food: Ethiopian & Burmese, when going out. Thai curries and a spicy Iraqi pesto-like sauce, called “S'choog”(sp?), when I'm cooking.
Generally, radical social critique, poetry, song-writing schemes.
And I geek out on communication around touch and intimacy a lot....
