My self-summary
According to friends, I'm a cross between "a tween girl on tumblr", "an aspie Hunter S. Thompson", and Roast Beef (from Achewood).

Politix: Intersectional feminism is important to me. I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong.

I'm all about: flat ontologies, (classical, avant, diy, folk, international, indigenous, etc) music, transgressive/progressive/naïve art, long aimless walks, and other general meanderings …

Elsewhere
I tweet (@jonbeilin), flicker, and occasionally tumble (dngl.tumblr.com).
What I’m doing with my life
I enjoy making media:
• Check out my flickr.
• The cover photo for the Xiu Xiu 7" 'Daphny'
• A segment of Michelle Tea's "Valencia" film
• The macro video food segments of the short film "Imperfect Appetites"
• A popular video of a rat on an escalator.

I'm not sure what my next big project is going to be. Actually, my current project is figuring out what the heck-all I want to do with my life. I'm on a "sabbatical" to "find myself"*. Consider yourself warned. Prominent options for the future: documentary on the intersection of social justice and tech, an interactive ebook that unpacks the semiotics and modes of production of computer chips, or maybe a (non-regressive) videogame.

* Don't worry, I'm volunteering for social justice orgs in the mean time.

Professionally, I worked at DIY.org, a self-directed education platform for kids. In the past I did some work in the academic sphere (Web Ecology Project), worked on some progressive videogames, wrote, and consulted for non-profits.
I’m really good at
Shooting myself in the foot, then giving myself lead-poisoning by putting that foot in my mouth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Christopher Alexander, Barthes, Brunt, Susie Cagle, Codex Seraphinianus, Coetzee, Foucault (specifically History of Sexuality Vol. 3), Harraway, Jakobson, Jung (esp Liber Novus/Red Book), Kant, Laozi, Tao Lin, Mishima, Morrison, Murakami, Nabokov, Nin, Orwell, Plath, Pynchon, Sorabji, Wallace, Woodring, Woolf, Yeshe, the Mondo 2000 crew (R. U. Sirius, St. Jude, Queen Mu, et al), +++

Last summer I read sci-fi by queer/women authors: david gerrold, james tiptree jr, joanna russ, le guin, etc. It was fun.

Music: WFMU. Check my last.fm. I don't discriminate based on genre or high v low-brow. Bach, Coil, Psychic TV, Sublime Frequencies, Sunn O))), a lotta jazz, a lotta funk and hiphop, a moderate amount of pop, a lil' country. At the same time, I've considering studying ethnomusicology more than once.

Movies: Kenneth Anger, Lizzie Borden's "Born In Flames", Maya Daren, Korine, Kubrick, Lynch, Schrader's "Mishima", Gaspar Noe, Solondz … plus almost everything pre-94 starring Eddie Murphy.

TV: Twin Peaks, Adventure Time, The Wire

Food: Flavorful & spicy vegetarian cuisine from around the world. Unprocessed, natural ingredients. No gluten (not by choice)!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex, empathy, and death, roughly in that order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Let's be honest: I'm probably staying in by myself or with friends working on some dumb-ass project or another.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
• I would rather have selected IDK/whocares than male/straight. I'm not good at/am disinterested in performing gender roles :/
• No, for real, I'm 25% Japanese.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–34
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're kind and strong and smart. You make things for reasons other than money. You want to go on a library date. You want to light candles and listen to music in the dark. You want to walk and have a picnic.

You wanna feel feelings! I wanna feel feelings! (I'm more love-driven than sex-driven, but I also like sex, and a long-term relationship is a process that can't be forced, and I'm cool with casual sex as long as it's paired with an actual friendship.)
