My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Amiga 500 with one meg upgrade.

I like stories, imagination, comics, books, games and animals. Also trees. I used to write for a games company. I quit to become a novelist. I spend a lot of loose thought on some composite of aesthetics, philosophy, metaphysics, pokemon, imaginary cats and what they might be doing. I like planes of colour and clear lines, realities behind drawings and words. Sometimes I buy toys. People are annoying.

I was on here for a while; I find that people bring out my misanthropy.. which is unfortunate. I usually fall in between things..sigh. I love comics but not superheroes, writing but not academia... I have a powerful allergy to cliche and therefore hipsters. I no longer speak to blokes with beards and no nautical experience. This means I can rarely buy a coffee in a coffee shop (I'm not joking; I actually turned round and walked out of two in the last week as the beard/checkered shirt/macbook ratio was so suffocating). What else? I'm vegetarian, which means vegans and meat eaters take turns abusing me. I find it only increases my respect for them.

My favourite dating profiles are the ones that start like this: 'Hi, *something-something-something* and if you've got a problem with that you can just fucking jog on.' or the ones that list their typical Friday night as being spent 'smashing the patriarchy'. Ideally, I'd like to be with someone like that, forever. Failing that, someone who offers to crticise my grammar. That's also extremely attractive.

I play piano and guitar. I should probably have mentioned that earlier, you know, because it's supposed to be cooler.. but it's not representative. I hate music culture. I was in a band for years, but really enjoyed just creating songs.. playing live plateaued at severe discomfort. I mess about with weird ipad instruments now. I like the texture of sound and the voices of materials. I grew up spending every free minute between school and sleep drawing. I think you can learn everything from everything, writing from music, art from sport. A lot of bullshit is cut through as a byproduct.

I get on with warm, caring, intelligent, rational, sensitive idiots. Love these: shyness hiding adventurousness; intelligence and ingenuousness; depth and irreverence; flint and smoke.

I love sport but not lads, art but not galleries. Tolstoy and Turtles cartoons. Rain drumming at the windows. Zen (but if I see another mandala I'll punch me in my own heart) Quantum Physics. No crystals, homeopathy, dried up academia, or ethnic wall-rugs nor endless slew of huffington post articles. I can't bear self-appointed-gurus. I have an ipad and I despise apple. I live near Brighton - that's the norm. You can pay to get a photo of your aura in the local native american accoutrements shop. There's a local native american accoutrements shop. And I hate american television.

I exercise my right not to vote.

This stuff is the product of experience and has in the past made me really sad. It would be restorative to be able to chat with someone who gets it sometime. I'm sorry to the nice, cool people for whom it's all obvious and most essentially: goes without saying. I don't meet you Ever enough.

It not being colonial portugal of the 17th century, I mostly come across fascism thus:

...self righteous pseudo-liberals and the world being reduced to politics. Race and gender studies types fixated on their own demographic. I find the sense of entitlement and unacknowledged prejudice and hypocrisy awful. I don't think believing in equality makes you a hero; it makes you normal. And I can't think of anything more boring to talk about. I also find unbearably tedious people avoiding thinking about anything that challenges them. I really need to be around discerning and honest, self-effacing people. I want to encourage all the beautiful things in my life. I'd rather be in a big room where everyone's a bit racist toward each other and themselves than a little pampered classroom where people are so removed from their souls they can't even think what they think let alone say it. So I write.. rather than endlessly receive..

To give some small idea of why I've mentioned this.. about half the profiles on here start ranting and raving about 'white cisgender men'. Or think that certain haircuts are more seditious than others. I'm trying to be blase - it's really not much fun.

Please don't message me if you:

- think it's fine that 'you can't be racist against white people' is being taught in universities

- throw around words like patriarchy and privilege

- or are threatened by the existence of issues of inequality affecting men. (such as this...)

Having to talk about this upsets me - I only do so through experience . I don't see the world in these terms and don't want to be around people who do. The hypocrisy of feminism in the west nauseates me :/.

Personality creates the only real minority. You don't get issued a shiny badge for that one though.

I should also probably mention.. I definitely don't want to meet anyone into drugs; not in a judgemental way - I just know who I am and would welcome the unusual experience of meeting someone with similar sensitivities. Actually, bollocks.. people mistake judiciousness for being judgemental.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing and editing several novels.

At some point I intend to:

- emerge;

- make sounds;

- record some music again;

- write another.

Some stuff involving fruit. Seems a reasonable place to end that sentence.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anxiety.

Unappreciated restraint.

Stretching

Guessing the year a film was made through NO MORE than the quality of its footage.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Absence. Sudden.

The first parts of me to notice them.

I'm not saying 'awesome' and I'm also not saying 'douchebag'.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anna Karenina, A Scanner Darkly, Dune, The Little Prince

Comics: BD/Manga.. Tintin, Moebius, Enki Bilal, Akira, Osamu Tezuka, Tekkon Kinkreet

Games: Deus Ex, The Longest Journey, Shadow of the Colossus, Monkey Island, Morrowind...

Films: On the Waterfront, 2001, Brazil, Secretary, The Odd Couple, Dog Day Afternoon, Kiki's Delivery Service, Jean de Florette, The Trial, Naked Lunch, THE STING! Because once upon a time, america made good films.

I don't really watch much television on account of it being so unbearably awful. I do love The Prisoner though (the original), Karl Pilkington, Curb Your Enthusiasm... I just remembered: I like detective shows like Poirot/Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes

I was in a band/songwriting for a long time. Nothing sends me to sleep like a big list of bands. I only listen to music when it's on in the background somewhere... I like motown, would like to get into more classical, jazz, weird ethnic instrument sounds, experimental pop, electronic textures. I loved the last living rose by pj harvey. The Beatles etc but I'm getting bored just typing this. I find music culture very depressing and cringe-worthy and unimaginative.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Self effacement
Pleasing forms
Ideas
Writing
A book/comic/game
Cats
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
stories, touch, metaphysical ideas (I know, but it's true), what I perceive as my flaws - which is probably my main flaw.

How important it is to protect what is harmed by the dishonesty of the world, to recognise, always, and be glad of the test in what is testing. How rubbish I am at this last. The finer observation and its absence in that surface against which I find myself.

whether I should message myself. Everything I put speaks to me on the deepest level.. but I seem so standoffish...

Okc observations:

- The irony of people who don't believe in 'binary gender' perceiving people as being 'binary' or 'non-binary'.

- Inexplicable arrogance :D (therein lies the explanation)

- A lot of middle class students (I am middle class :)) with no problems and hero complexes.

- The absence of moderation. That the substance of most opinions is no more than a vehicle for conviction...

How lonely it feels to be honest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
very pleased that I'm not in a club. Writing, reading, watching a film, playing a game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My misanthropy is well-researched.

This site upsets my peace of mind, hence MY ENTIRE PROFILE.

I feel awkward at parties.

I can't go to Shoreditch. It's a medical condition known as discernment.

Once a girl bought me a drink and I said thank you. I later learned, via her blog, that it had blown my mind.

I don't care about tattoos/piercings.
The word 'vintage' makes me want to cry with boredom.
I think Kevin Spacey and Johnny Depp are very bad actors. Kevin Spacey also exudes a foul oil product he considers being european. :)
I bought a yellow care bear and then I bought a purple care bear.
I HATE TED talks/HBO/Breaking Bad. I don't mind disagreeing :)
I really really LOVE stories -
The irony of reading for the ten thousandth time someone talking about 'the zombie apocalypse'.
Tarantino, Nick Cave, Bill Hicks make me FULL-BODY-CRINGE.
I like art AND sport.
I shoved the cat but it was affectionate.
I think most people who go on and on about perceived oppression need it.
I don't want to go to New York.
Aren't colours pretty?
As one of their victims, I actively disrespect the social sciences.
I don't read papers.
I love the world, not an idea of it that appeases me.
I can't deal with cliche or disingenuousness.

How come people are so concerned with 'the world' and 'issues' but don't stop to speak to the old lady next door? The world is the sum of such small inactions..

I also know that I sound MENTAL/IMPOSSIBLE. These things are normally thoughts, evanescing at the rate natural to them, but a computer screen is a fixed amplitude.

It's a shame that not being a complete idiot qualifies as being impossible really.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you wish to donate.

You're really lovely and sweet. This is everything to me.

You empathise with this stuff.

------------------------------

There's a lot of don'ts here; (shrug) okcupid/people is/are rubbish.

If you're one of the few remaining people in England who isn't engaged in the process of pretending to be american. Dude, that'd be awesome. :l

You understand the world in nuances.

YOU NEVER VOLUNTEERED TO READ POETRY IN CLASS.

You're not a hipster. Honestly. I have profound cliche/cliche unawareness aversion.

You don't think 'gender' is interesting. Or find yourself bewitched by traffic lights. Actually.. the latter I'd like.

You don't spend your whole profile going on about what a rebel you think you are.

I dunno. You like games, books, comics.. YOU LIKE TINTIN and want to talk about them/him.

You don't say stuff like 'pansexual' in your profile. I'll just think you're a fucking idiot. Sorry. :)

ESSENTIAL: It doesn't enrage you that I'm white/male/vegetarian/straight. It will bore me.

I did end my profile with the word 'spaghetti' - I just deleted it. That's how serious the situation is.
