Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a dad and my daughter pretty much always comes first for me.
After that, I'm an artist who likes to paint in oils, sculpt in
sculpy, and am curious about most any other sort of artistic
endeavor. I was part of a swing dance troupe for a year and have
learned how to passably handle most of the ballroom and latin
dances... well, not so much the latin stuff, but I can boogie
alright. Well, to be more accurate, I can embarrass myself on the
dance floor in a good way... I hope.
I love trees. They're glorious stargazers and perfectly amenable to
anthropomorphizing regardless of whether or not they pay any
attention to you when you try it. I once took a nap in a tree. It
was one of the most restful things I've ever done and I'm terribly
happy that I didn't fall out while I dozed there, up in the
branches, swaying to the wind.
I'm a bleeding heart liberal with a scientific bent and even though
the world can be terribly dark, I can't help but be foolishly
optimistic because there's so much beauty in the world and in the
hearts of most people, that I just know that somehow, things will
get better. Either that, or we'll just struggle along and figure
things out the best we can and hopefully survive the disasters we
create; real things like climate change and world wide economic
collapses, the Gap logo change, or the fun fictional disasters such
as zombie invasions, lovecraftian horrors and the sad passing of
wonderful fads into mainstream memes.
I'm looking, well, I'm not really looking, I'm just open to somehow
bumping into that perfect mix of human that complements my own
strange mix of habits, inspirations, world views and dreams. I
would like this to be a reciprocal sort of complementariansm where
we both support each other in our works and in our random attempts
at self expression. I would very much like to find someone who is
fun and adventurous and just a bit crazier and extroverted than
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm raising a daughter, working for the man, paying off the
and saving for a better day.
I'm running (barefoot style) and rowing (indoor) and trying
build a better body out of whimsical determination and a
healthy vegetarian diet.
I'm painting and sketching, writing and dreaming and attempting
get some projects done in the little bit of spare time I
I'm wondering how repetitive I can get...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Irreverent respect and non-sequiturs are things I do well.
Mediation and random blather, walking and making interesting things
in the kitchen. (note: interesting can sometimes be good!
I'm halfway decent at the painting and drawing thing, but I could
I'm quite good at telling my daughter nonsense stories on long
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
While I am a vegetarian, I love all sorts of food, even the stuff I
don't eat. Pho and Thai are particularly delicious but making stuff
at home can be equally gastronomically rewarding.
I love the Jasper Fforde books and anything by China Mieville is
sure to please. Chung Quo was an amazing epic series of books. I
love Don Quixote and think Les Miserable was incredibly
manipulative but still very enjoyable, much the same way Avatar
was. I'll read or watch just about anything.
British TV is almost always a favorite and Netflix and Hulu are
lovely lovely timekillers that I really must use less but I don't
think I will.
As for music, I love the odd and the frenetic, the soothing and the
moody. From Circus Contraption, Dresden Dolls, Rasputina, Faun
Fables and Cat Power to Apocolyptica, Ye Ye, Psychobilly, Old
school Hillbilly, Classic Metal, Musical Theatre, Cambodian Rock,
and Zoe Keating.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well, not counting the obvious things one needs to survive in the
typical meat body, I'd guess something to draw with, a world to
venture about in, social connections, music, books to read and
someone to love would be my six picks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever art/story projects I'm currently involved in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Increasingly considering venturing out into that great big world
and mingling with people at a greater frequency than normal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have more than the ordinary number of ...
