“I don’t want to be insane, I want to be fey.
Fey with the same root as Faery, fey as in knowing
hidden things, fey as in not acting right for banal
reality because you are seeing things that magnify,
shrink, and erase the normal world all at the same
time. Fey as in being in touch with the
not quite natural that is somehow the spirit of the
forest. Fey as in the wisest old woman that nobody
admits to respecting. Fey as in Hamlet, not a
madman. If you are insane you are lost in a
threatening void, but if you are fey you are lost in
an endless tangle of paths.”
First of all, I’m the boy you want after the zombie apocalypse. My random anarchist eagle scout skills will come in handy. =)
I’m an abstract thinker. And I’m curious about everything. I love to talk. And I love people who are not afraid to have a discussion. I have no interest in being right or being smart or whatever it is people seem to need. I just want to explore ideas and question things and find amazing new connections between seemingly unrelated ideas.
I’m attracted to kind and good natured people. Don’t get me wrong, I love dark and gloomy. But people who get their kicks out of picking on weaker people or bringing pain to the world are not valuable people to me (see nemesis). On the other hand, I have a huge problem with authority. Breaking the law to me has nothing to do with being a good person. It is probably our duty as moral beings to completely disregard it.
I also have a special love for art kooks, tinker gnomes, people with a complete disregard for social norms, mad faeries, gruff and tortured intellectuals, philosophers, writers, people who talk to plants, musicians, people who smile, people who draw on themselves (even notes), people with a cause (read as people with a passion), people who care about the world (not just wearing the tshirt), space cadets, visionaries, the quiet and the fragile, travelers and nomads, road trippers, hackers, burlesque dancers, roller derby girls, the self reliant, independent filmmakers, Buddhists, people who know the difference between politics and what’s really going on, skeptics, shamans, healers, most burners, farmers, urban crafters, the misunderstood, goths, the compulsive, anachronisms, anarchists, beer brewers, absinthe drinkers, scientists and mathematicians, street performers, people who think Miyazaki films express something important about themselves. . . . the list goes on and on really. But I think you get the idea.
I’m also very easy-going, drama free, and gifted at cohabitation and long loving relationships.
I had this on my last profile but I think people thought I was a bit insane. I fluctuate between wanting to write a bunch of bat shit crazy stuff on here and wanting to seem less threatening or more down to earth. I guess the truth is I’m pleasantly somewhere in the middle. I never want to scare off quality people but if any of this stuff does it then honestly we probably wouldn’t get along anyway.
Quoted: “I have fiery shiny-eyed ideas and like to brew my own absinthe. I write books about feral children that live under the streets of new orleans and battle creatures that destroy innocence. I collect bits of metal i find on the street and books by brian froud and post modern philosophers. i have engineering diagrams of theo janson's kinetic theory taped on the wall over my computer. i get excited at recycled stores and love miyazaki films. i want more out of life. and i have a decent vegetable garden even though i have to use planter boxes at my apartment.”
