I like books and films that aren't listed by hipsters on dating sites, comics that aren't ironic takes on the superhero genre, games and animals. I like animals better than anything but still need anything so I don't get bored of animals. I like imaginative books (and games... and comics), nothing that gets the Guardian review section's sombre approval.
Here's some spliced tape recordings concerning myself: I'm a writer. I would say that it makes me wince saying this, but for the feeling I'm entering a wince feedback loop. I did write for a games company so I'm allowed. I quit to become a novelist. I needed to. I spend a lot of loose thought on aesthetics/philosophy/metaphysics/pokemon/imaginary cats and what they might be doing. I'm scared I sound academic with all this talk of pokemon. I'm not; I hate academia. It's like being served a plate of old cardboard by a cardboard cut out waiter who seems exceedingly pleased with him/herself. I play piano and guitar and like writing music, but long ago grew disenchanted with music culture, affectation, anything that someone might mention on a panel show full of loud shouting shiny people. I like the texture of sound and the voices of materials. I'm an aesthete. I grew up spending every free minute between school and sleep drawing.
You're probably feeling pretty dazzled right now. At first this might seem like nausea. Don't be fooled. I'd take a moment, perhaps get a drink, look at it, realise you don't want it, let your thoughts slide from the contents to the glass...
I get on with warm, caring, intelligent, rational, sensitive idiots. Love theses: shyness hiding adventurousness; intelligence and ingenuousness; depth and silliness.
I love playing sport but am made of anti-lad particles. Sitting in coffee shops with rain drumming at the windows. Zen/Taoism/Quantum Physics. No crystals, homeopathy, or ethnic wall-rugs nor neuroscience/huffingtonpost articles as the new-world-religion. Maybe someone somewhere will hear the note sounded in that. It's a macrotone. :) I can't bear self-appointed-gurus. 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. Good, eh?
I bought little round glasses because I love them and they don't have thick dark frames that turn you into an Apple store employee the minute you wear them.
What else? This is negative as I dislike this site and want to leave. Umm, I should probably mention.. I don't want to meet anyone into drugs - just because I'd welcome the unusual experience of meeting someone with similar sensitivities.
And because okc is okc: I'm not at all interested in politics. I don't like to wave around my liberal flag; it's all a bit obvious and boring. And highly dubious, I think. So, for the reason above, I keep away from people with gender/race/sexuality obsessions/problems. I'd really like to follow the things that are positive are much as I can. I sound difficult. It's not me; it's everyone else?
Just to explain 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 exercise my right not to vote. Sometimes, I get anxious.
Bored of this bit now...
