Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Time to rewrite my whole profile once again. I am sad to say that I
would define myself as overly nice and accommodating. Yet I hate to
say the cliche of being a nice guy. I try to be a smart and
concious person and strive to be a feminist ally.
I am horrible at holding grudges and see the best in people (or if
they are truly horrible then at least passable qualities about
them). I am currently back in school again after close to 4 years
taking History. I formerly was taking Linguistics years before this
current stretch. I love being involved in my community and have
worked my way into the local arts community through booking of
concerts. I also do a weekly radio show up at the UVic radio
I am an avid collector of vinyl records and movies. I love viewing
film and discussing it with friends. I try to get out of Victoria
whenever I can afford it. This usually leads to short trips to
Vancouver and Seattle but last few years have also seen escapes to
LA, Chicago, and NY. I really love hosting parties and just seeing
the joy from friends. I know way to many people and am horrible
with names of people I should know by now.
I have strong morals and ideals given to me from my upbringing and
involvement in DIY communities. I will not tolerate sexist, racist,
or homophobic remarks. I respect a person's relationship to faith
and what they believe despite not identifying with one myself. I
view myself as a left wing socialist and sometimes pay attention to
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As mentioned above. I am attending school, hosting a radio show,
booking concerts and I failed to mention I also have a job. I
somehow find time to spend with friends and watching movies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think now that my skill is hosting events. I have had a
lot of practice with shows and since then parties/dances. Maybe
not, the rare time I actually get around to baking friends rave
about whatever baked good I make. Perhaps they are merely being
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a beard. I shrug a lot. I really do shrug a lot. I have a
few friends that like to bug me about my mannerisms.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Culture is a very important part of my life be it literature, music
or movies. Below will be the "typical list" stuff but I am not
limited to these and have literal wide range on everything.
I rarely have time to read but over the past few years these are
the books that I couldn't put down. Virgin Suicides, High Fidelity,
Brothers Karamazov, Homage to Catalonia, Fear and Trembling,
Lolita, Rebel Angels, Fifth Business, East of Eden.
Movies are my current love. I have started getting into collecting
Criterion Collection movies. I guess you could say I am into "Art
Films" for the most part. I do enjoy stupid comedies as well as my
roommate calls them. There are quite a few living directors that if
they put out a movie I would be there opening night in Victoria.
Sofia Coppola, Steve McQueen, Lars Von Trier, Wes Anderson, Paul
Thomas Anderson, Noah Baumbach, Whit Stillman to name a few.
I do organize the movies I own by director...
Music is the toughest category to talk about on here. I find when I
am viewing other people's profiles it is usually where I judge a
person most. So maybe I feel that is where the most judgement comes
from on a profile. I have the most horrible elitist attitude here
and am about to put out the most cliched statement ever. I enjoy
good music in all genres. Key part there is good. If it is well
done it can have an impact on me.
About 60% of my music on my computer would be considered "loud" or
"aggressive." This music here may have defined me most but it is
not what I am limited to aurally. I dabble in Jazz, have placed a
finger into classical. My roommate plans to get me into some old
country. I listen to indie pop and rock and some electronic stuff.
Hardcore punk has my heart but so does super cheesy pop music with
songs like "Call Me Maybe"
TV I generally watch sitcoms and TV dramas. I watched all of LOST
and as captivated by that. Currently waiting for Community and Mad
Men's new seasons. Up to date on How I Met Your Mother. Formerly
and still love super nerdy things like: Buffy, Angel, Farscape,
Sliders, and various others.
I am currently vegetarian. I will not partake in eating meat but I
will not judge or make remarks about someone else's personal
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The people I consider friends / social interaction
My records / the concept of listening to art
Movies / Film as art.
Being involved in DIY orientated music scenes
Just need to think of one more now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When is the next time I will have time to read. I wonder if I can
bring _____ to play in Victoria.
