I'm a bit of a geek, particularly when it comes to TV shows, anime, and science fiction. I especially enjoy JRPGs and a few other genres of video games. My other main hobby is cooking, which is convenient since I experience a strange compulsion to eat food every day.
Professionally, I'm finishing a PhD in musicology, which more or less amounts to the acquisition of numerous tools to discuss and analyse the culturally elevated music of dead people. Couple that with utter ignorance of nearly all of the music people actually listen to today, and you've pretty much got it. I'm also involved in the Skeptical movement and write for a fairly well-known blog network.
Oh, and I'm INTJ if you're into that sort of thing (it's pseudoscience, but fun pseudoscience). I can also be a major introvert, and it can take some coaxing to get me out of the house to social events, especially to meet new people. This can also make me appear reserved or (maybe?) standoffish or disinterested. Once I get familiar I relax considerably and you'll see that nothing could be less the case.
By the way, I really am looking for new friends, so I'm still happy to chat and hang out even if romance isn't on the agenda.
