So, the basics.
I am queer as fuck, being bisexual, genderqueer and a relationship anarchist..
I am a feminist.
I swing so far to the left in my politics that I have been called a pinko commie leftist scumbag. And I am proud of that.
I spend a lot of time recognising my various privileges (most specifically, the fact that I am white, and male-appearing, and got to grow up male).
I am one of those terrible "Social Justice Warriors" and if you use that term as an insult, don't even bother messaging me. We won't get along particularly well.
I care a lot about a whole bunch of stuff.
I am a musician (mainly I am a guitarist, but I play violin, viola, french horn, and piano.). I am a poet. I am reasonably good at both. I have been an actor, a waiter, an IT consultant, a bartender, a stage manager, a director and a writer. I have worked a lot of ridiculous jobs, and none of them have left me any good stories, much to my despair.
I like to dance until I can no longer walk, and do not even give a single care that I may or may not look ridiculous.
I work hard, and play harder. Actually, this is a lie. I work an awful lot and don't play much at all anymore, but I'd like to.
Among other demands on my time, I am currently studying music production and songwriting in a formal capacity, thus developing a professional vocabulary for things I was already doing and didn't realise at the time.
I am both incredibly self-concious, and overbearingly egotistical, frequently at the same time.
If offered Achilles' choice of glory or long life, I will always choose glory.
I will not be content.
I work too freaking much, this is an unfortunate side effect of having to pay bills. I do not like paying bills.
Mostly, it's music. Music is my biggest passion. I'm even studying it and thus am probably a ridiculous nerd, because I'm reading textbooks for "fun", and by fun, I don't actually mean fun. Fun is something you have when you're not studying for your future job. Not to say I don't enjoy all this, because I kinda do. I like knowing things.
I'm occasionally freelancing as a producer's assistant/dogsbody for various theatre gigs, as well as planning out a show for Melbourne Fringe, with the idea that I'll take it to Adelaide if it goes well.
I'm writing a comic. I've been doing this for 4 years. I need to find a better system than "mad flurry of inspiration" followed by ignoring it for 6 months, followed by "rewrite EVERYTHING. CLEAN ALL THE THINGS"
I am not a tortured artist, but I probably should be. It'd result in a better quality of work.
So my big aim is to make money through music. Don't care if its as a performer, or a songwriter, or as a session musician.
I'm good at listening. That's a given. And I don't mean sitting there and idly nodding and pretending I care. I mean actually listening to what the hell you have to say.
I'm pretty good at a whole lot of things, but I wouldn't claim to be really good, yet. I'm working on it. I'll get there one of these years.
I also have a nice ass.
B. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the Third Man
C. I watch a lot of shows, most of them have been awful or trashy and I have abandoned them soon after. Any TV show James Spader is in is likely to keep my attention though.
D. Music. Don't talk to me about music. I will possibly talk your ear off.
E. Vietnamese, Italian, anything really that isn't filled with nuts.
