A lot of people know me through my comics. I've drawn a comic strip diary since the end of 2008 without missing a single day.
Comics I love:
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
Blankets by Craig Thompson
Life in Hell by Matt Groening
American Born Chinese by Derek Kirk Kim
100 Demons by Lynda Barry
Any of Larry Gonick's non-fiction gems
Any of Chris Ware's depressing quasi-memoirs
"Regular" Books I love:
The Healing of America by T.R. Reid
Mad in America by Robert Whitaker
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
The Hitchhiker's Guide series by Douglas Adams
Ethics for a New Millennium by the Dalai Lama
Anything by David Sedaris
I'm generally not big on TV/movie watching, but I have my moments. I like a lot of documentaries and science programs such as Cosmos (either Sagan or Tyson) and I love animation, especially Adventure Time and Gravity Falls. Wanna watch documentaries/cartoons with me? Let's make it a date! I also enjoy some things that are just silly (Red Dwarf, Monty Python, cats on YouTube) and I'm slowly working my way through all of the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents series.
When left to my own devices, I will listen to nothing but Bright Eyes and hits from the late 60's/early 70's
The Mamas and the Papas
and Simon & Garfunkle, to name a few.
But I also love
Iron and Wine
Death Cab for Cutie
The Postal Service
They Might Be Giants
Architecture in Helsinki
Eleanor Murray (an Olympia local - look her up!)
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
I'm pretty open minded when it comes to music. I love going to house shows. I love discovering new music and I generally assume that everyone has better taste in music than I do because just about anything with a good beat will make my toes start tapping. The time and energy most people spend honing their musical tastes, I spent honing my comic book tastes.
I love to listen to podcasts. I subscribe to This American Life, the Savage Lovecast, Radiolab, and things of that ilk. I'm a fan of NPR and I also occasionally enjoy listening to books on tape.
Food is my favorite food. Unless it's onions. Onions don't count as food. I suspect I have some sort of allergy or sensitivity to them. I'm definitely allergic to maple syrup, and that torments me. Most of what I eat these days is vegetarian/vegan, but that's just because it's hard to find good meat in the Northwest and I have a vegan roommate with whom I share a lot of meals. I love Indian food, Japanese food, Thai food, Mexican food, Ethiopian food, soups, stews, you name it. I enjoy lengua, tripe, liver, and other odd meats. I once ate something so spicy, it gave me a nosebleed. I like to be adventurous. Wanna cook something together? Let's make it a date!
3. Friends and family
4. My sketchbook
5. Cuddly cats
6. My bicycle (Her name is Shirley and she is beautiful. She's been in the family longer than I have.)
The OKC question that best sums up my personality is the one about "Which do you prefer: things that are good or things that are interesting?" I am solidly in the "interesting" category. "Good" things don't always make great stories, but "interesting" things, by definition, do.
Also, I have a unicycle. I'm not very good at riding it; perhaps because I usually ride it when I'm tipsy.
* you live within biking distance of Olympia - long distance relationships aren't my thing and it can be tricky to get around without a car.
* you're single - I'm not poly and I'm not an accomplice to cheaters.
* you don't have children - I'm not going to be their mommy.
* you're responsible and capable of taking care of yourself - I'm not going to be your mommy.
* you're intelligent - college education a plus - genuine curiosity about the world around you is a minimum.
* you believe in evolution - Fuck yeah, science!
When you message me, send me a vocab word. I get too many messages on here from guys who just copy and paste their initial messages and/or have obviously not read my profile. It'll let me know that you actually bothered to read this thing and, if nothing else, it'll be fun for me to learn new words. If you don't send a vocab word, I WON'T RESPOND. If you do, I promise I'll write back. Even if it takes me a while to get around to it.
Here; I'll go first. Taciturn. I would prefer not to date a man who is taciturn because I don't like to do all the talking.
