Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've sunk a lot of time into physics and computer science in the
last few years; these days I'm looking to branch out to other
interests, especially the arts. I like making things -- software,
drawings, food, etc.
I just started skiing last winter. I really want to get good at it
this coming season -- so ski buddies would be awesome.
I happen to be quite into kink, mostly as a dom.
I used to play amateur Scrabble, and I think I still retain some
facility for anagramming.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
1. To quote Carl Sagan, if one wants to make an apple pie from
scratch, one has to first invent the universe. You could say that
I'm trying to figure out how to build that metaphorical apple pie
2. Making and breaking software. Occasionally writing about
3. Working on my drawing skills. I've found that kink porn is
actually a pretty good reference for figure drawing. The variety of
poses, the tensed muscles... go figure (ha!).
4. Re-learning the piano.
5. Cooking, occasionally. I make pretty decent steaks and grilled
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making terribly amazing (amazingly terrible?) puns.
More seriously: Doing abstract reasoning stuff. Programming,
Physics, Math, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Tall, thin, fair-skinned. And that I might pass off as a girl if I
dressed appropriately (not that I've tried)
I've also been likened to an anime character. I recently acquired a
snapback with anime-style eyes, so that resemblance may be even
more striking now.
My hair is occasionally purple.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Unbearable Lightness of Being is one of my all-time
favorites. I've reread it multiple times over the years, and each
time I understand it a little more.
Other good books include The Diamond Age (by Neal Stephenson),
Patton (biography of the WW2 general), Jonathan Strange and Mr
Norrell, Musicophilia (by Oliver Sacks). The Sandman series (by
Neil Gaiman). Cloud Atlas (book beats the movie).
Shows: Game of Thrones, House of Cards. Depictions of fucked-up
power dynamics never cease to entertain.
Music: Stars, RHCP, The Killers, Panic! at the Disco, The Postal
Service, Deathcab, The New Pornographers, Florence + the Machine.
And Drake, of course. A surprising fraction of my favorite artists
Manga: Nana to Kaoru.
Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Movies: V for Vendetta, Dark Waters, The Matrix, Kick Ass, 500 Days
of Summer, Scott Pilgrim vs The Rest of the World.
Food: I dislike most vegetables. (Exceptions: Arugula! And to some
extent, celery and asparagus.) Asian food is generally awesome --
particularly Japanese, Korean, and Thai. Thai Basil Beef + Fried
Egg on white rice is one of my favorites. Am also a big fan of
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* My computer
* The Internet
You can obtain / construct almost anything with those two, so I'm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How systems work, or fail to work. Especially curious about the way
power and authority get obtained.
This clip amuses me endlessly: http://youtu.be/FpL6Fwu0wkw?t=38s
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most of what I know was learnt off the Internet.
