When talking about politics, I default to my ideals rather than pragmatism. I'm somebody who believes that achievable ideals lead to complacency once they are achieved. I'm perfectly happy holding ideals that may not be attainable and figuring out how to phrase them such that the closer you get to the ideal, the better the world is. If you can manage to rope me in and get me talking pragmatically, I'm still left-of-center by European standard, putting me firmly in "leftist nutjob" territory in the eyes of the US mainstream.
I am very happily in a polyamorous relationship, and while I am not particularly looking for another relationship, I am open to one if you are sufficiently awesome.

Shows: Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Top Gear, Weeds, Futurama, MLG, Arrested Development, Firefly, Clannad, Kanon
Music: Punk, folk, jazz that isn't smooth, classical music that's either bombastic or melancholy, and comedic musicals are what I choose to listen to, but I can listen to basically anything that's made with actual instruments and enjoy myself. (Some specific artists: Anti-Flag, Rise Against, Immediate Music, Evan Greer, Mumford and Sons)
Not-So-Guilty-Pleasures: Hell's Kitchen, Survivor, Saw
-Fairly regular internet access
-Friends I can rely on
-People doing things in the world that remind me that I'm not alone in wanting to improve it.
-The ability to occasionally do utterly random things just to entertain myself. Working as an usher at a concert venue a few years back, I went through an entire show talking to guests in a fake Scottish accent.
