I think comparing the questions we've answered would tell you more
than anything I could write here. With some luck, it's the link up
there titled "the two of us". If it says something like "Y'all got
issues", perhaps that'd be even more interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm still figuring that out, to be honest. I'd like to make a
living either as a designer or as a translator. 'Til then, I'm
happily sliding along.
I’m really good at
Figuring things out. Puzzles, VCR manuals, some strange piece of
technology... which is why I'm still busy with Lego. It's pretty
much the most elaborate puzzle you can think of, and the end result
can be whatever you want!
People also tell me I'm good with graphics and language, and that
I'm a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me
My soft-spokenness and length. (Almost six feet / two meters)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For starters; British TV is awesome. Stuff like QI, Black books,
Mock the week and so on... I'm only going to include a couple of
things of what I like. If I were to include everything, we'd be
here all night.
Coraline, The Fall, Amelie, Fight Club, American Beauty, Fifth
Element, the Machinist, stuff by the Coen brothers. Plenty of
anime, but I missed out on some recent stuff. Any
Anything involving Adam Sandler is definately out. (Later
amendment: 'Funny people' was quite bearable.) Which goes to show
that going for something out of your comfort zone may be worth it,
every once in a while :)
For written material; Anything by Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett,
though this seems a prerequisite for being on this site. Sadly, I
don't really have much time to spend reading. Most of what I'm
reading is on tvtropes.org, nowadays.
My musical tastes are all over the map. Björk, Khachaturian, Tim
Minchin, Gorillaz, Muse, Skunk Anansie, White stripes, Alanis
Morissette, Queen, Alamaailman Vasarat, Radiohead, Massive Attack,
Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Yoko Kanno... Lately my playlist includes a
lot of movie and videogame soundtracks.
The things I'm usually not too impressed by are country, R&B
and anything labeled "hardcore".
The six things I could never do without
Human contact, freedom, a sense of security, music, a soft, warm
bed and some alone time every now and again.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The blind spots that people have. It's amazing that someone can
declare feminism 'finished', while wolf whistling at a girl only
moments later. Of course, this only makes me wonder about the blind
spots undoubtedly have.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about the things I create. I
don't really think of myself as an 'artist' or anything like that,
more like a craftsperson. I can spend a lot of time mentally
working out a problem I'm stuck with, a design or a project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoyed watching 'The devil wears Prada'
You should message me if
Well, if you're in the neighbourhood and don't mind seeing a movie
or grabbing some food and a drink.
