My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well this was inevitable. I'm relocating from Atlanta, Georgia to Carbondale, Illinois in the near future and I'm reformatting my profile to act as outreach to try to get to know people in Carbondale. Ideally I'd like to find some folks to go in on a place with me to run as a living-space/art studio while we work on various projects. I want to focus on my work in Performance Studies and I'd like to surround myself with people who have similar aims/qualities.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Focusing on the irons in the fires. I'm thinking of heading down to New Orleans this Summer to help out some friends trying to make a living in drag down there, and I'm also looking into founding/joining a sort of art collective. Trying to re-establish a proto-social network in a new town.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
holding long conversations, with numerous tangents. Especially good at remembering where these conversations went into rabbit holes and bringing them back. Also I have the best sense of fashion ever. Think bright-yellow shirt with a sleeping Thomas Kinkade kitten on it and you've got my jam, if only it had more garish neon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure, it's usually not something that I inquire about when meeting people. Having met a few new people, people tend to notice several verbal tics of mine fairly often, or the fact that I can be very blunt and to-the-point when I talk. I'm not very good at small talk so I tend to not engage in it when possible.

Books: Brave New World, Sandman, Song of Solomon, Oryx & Crake, House of Leaves, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Handmaid's Tale, Kafka on the Shore Travels in Hyperreality, Comm Theory textbooks, Heart of Darkness, Naked Lunch

Movies: The Shining, David Lynch, Jodorowsky, and some other pretentious jazz.

Music: little bit of Leonard Cohen, some CocoRosie, Dan Deacon, Joanna Newsom, people tell me that I just like the sound of indie-sounding acoustic ladies and I couldn't tell them they were wrong.

Food: In general I'm fine with most foods, I try to avoid red meat when possible, and foods with a mushy texture bother me (applesauce, mashed potatoes, etc.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the great outdoors
There's a sort of high I get when I get really passionate about something, a conversation, or an activity, or a piece of art, and I love this high, I call it my 'fire' and it's a big part of my personality
games (of pretty much any variety: I think games are some of the best indicators of what a culture values).
transportation (I'm not a car enthusiast by any stretch of the imagination, but my car has gone many places with me, it's gotten me across the country and back and I have a great fondness for it).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How OKCupid can manage to find questions which are sometimes oversimple and seem to also stretch into some strange amount of depth. For example, "Which is bigger, the Sun or the Earth?"

The best way to integrate art with social movement practices in order to better affect social change in the world.

How pretentious the last thing I entered in here was. (and how inevitably I'll sabotage myself by posting something which I'll later regard as lacking in some fashion and will edit only to repeat the process again and again).

How anyone would dare do anything but abandon their car at a red light at 2 AM.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thinking of how male posturing is really a vicious cycle.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Anything here resonates with you, if you'd like to get to know me or ask any questions about the contents of my profile. If you'd like to meet up and talk in person, if you have an interest in performance art, discussing feminism, or kink. If you want to believe. If you don't want to believe. If you want to argue about something, if you're bored, If you want to think up how to change OKCupid. If you want to think up how to change the world (and do it), if you want to jam, pretty much anything right now. I'm not really in the market for connections beyond friendship/collaborator at this point but I'll be back at some point I'm sure.
