My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"I don't always get you, Mike. Sometimes you irritate me. But out here, shirtless and shrooming in the desert, you just make sense."

Intelligent, passionate, and "musikal" (of or relating to the Muses), seeking pretty much the same. I'm looking for someone who still believes in beauty, who lives life absolutely for its own sake, and who isn't so out of their mind as to constitute too much of a direct threat to my well-being. We'll see how the search turns out.

UPDATE: Hunter Stockton Thompson is amazing. That is all.

UPDATE: Red/Black Creature, "Summon Philosopher: Vigilance, Ninjutsu, Protection from Blue."

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I FINALLY DEFENDED MY FUCKING MASTERS THESIS AFTER WHAT SEEMED LIKE FOREVER!!! Now I'm learning translational German and applying to doctoral programs - wish a brotha luck :)

(My thesis was entitled "Nietzsche's Neo-Hellenism: Daimonism and Moral Psychology," if that gives you any idea of what I work on. I'd like to start translating some of Rhode's theosophical classicism by the end of next term.)

There are some rumors about trying to publish my first novel and/or beginning work on a second one, but HBO hasn't offered me a mini-series yet or anything...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
For a long time, "turning up the volume," but this doesn't teach me as much as it used to, so I'm learning how to chill out a bit - "Get in the pit, son!" is a great life philosophy, until you realize that you want to walk at the age of fifty :P

I've also been doing the guitar/bass/vocals thing since I was a kid. If you want to be serenaded, inspire me :)

^These are two or three years old, I'll post some new stuff in the next couple weeks...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

"The Gay Science" (Nietzsche, F.) and "Scar Tissue" (Kiedis, A.) were probably the most influential texts on the development of my young psyche. The result is not as scary as you might think, but I like to think it makes me really fucking cool in really unique ways.

The bulk of my reading these days centers around my philosophical research, which focuses on what I call "German Neo-Hellenism," a philosophical lineage running from Pre-Socratics like Herakleitos, through Nietzsche and Heidegger, and into contemporary scholars like Babette Babich, David Krell, and Iain Thomson.

(If you think that makes me sound like a pretentious douchebag, you're right. But I'm not, so we'll probably get along well : ) )

I always liked Salvatore and Tolkien as a child, but my own novel attempts (and, occasionally, even fails) to cast fantasy fiction in a more mature light. The restoration of magic, songs, demons, and art to my audience in the so-called "real" world should not be contingent on marketable pretenses of what's safe or established; on such conditions it could not even be realized. I also hope to improve on the genre-wide epidemic of lazy poetry.

COMICS ARE BOOKS!!! Calvin and Hobbes, Bloom County, and The Boondocks, yo!


I like films that have a smaterring of action, but are really focused on good characters and psychological intricacy. Think Pulp Fiction, The Last Samurai, Leon the Professional, and of course, Serenity.

I'm kind of a pagan metal Mal Reynolds : )


I LOVE anything featuring Dax Riggs. Let's just start from there.

For most of my life, I mostly listened to heavy metal - frankly, I was inspired by the church burnings in Oslo, and for a long time the music helped me to bond poetically with radically pagan developments in my young ethos. A few years ago, I opened my mind and my ears to everything, and that's been a blessing and a trip to have experienced. I've been turned on to rap, math prog, harsh noise, trip-hop, and whatever more listenable stuff you want to play for me.


Somewhere along the line, I started living on quesadillas and sushi. I'm a mean chef, but this limited selection has yet to bore me. Go figure.

I'll usually try food from any country that I haven't, and from most countries that I have. Getting down with eats from across the globe has been a unique pleasure since moving to the city.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Reckless, relentless, hyper-passionate optimism.
My towel
Good people
The will to power?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All of it. At a thousand miles an hour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Smoking a hookah with some colleagues, preferably with a stout beer and raucous music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've dated a reasonable number of train wrecks, and I wouldn't take any of it back. Maybe you've done cool things that didn't work out, too; and we can totally be friends :P
