My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like stories, imagination, books, manga, bd, games and animals. 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 currencies... Sometimes I buy toys. People are annoying.

I usually fall in between things, I love comics but not superheroes, writing but not academia, games but not all this 'I'm a geek' stuff... I have a powerful allergy to cliche and therefore hipsters. I can't bring myself to speak to blokes with beards and no nautical experience. Noone understands me. :(

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 really dislike music culture/affectation. I was in a band for years, but just enjoyed creating songs. I grew up spending every free minute between school and sleep drawing.

My favourite dating profiles are 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.

I get on with warm, CARING, intelligent, rational, sensitive idiots. That girl I saw reading the Roald Dahl book on the tube. Love these: shyness hiding adventurousness; intelligence and ingenuousness; depth and irreverence; causticness and sweetness.

I love football but not lads, art but not galleries. Tolstoy and Turtles cartoons. Rain drumming at the windows. I don't love faddishness: neuroscience-fetishing, TED-talks, homeopathy, ethnic wall-rugs, huffington post articles. I can't bear self-appointed-gurus of any sort. 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.

I don't understand how people can watch 99 percent of american television. I don't mean to be difficult. I'd say that if politely turning down a bowl of grit too.

I exercise my right not to vote.

okc:

I have one major aversion, cultivated since coming on here: self-righteous pseudo liberals. 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. The world/this place is heaving with reactionary race and gender studies types, with multiple chips on their shoulders. I find the hypocrisy spectacularly repellent. It might seem strange mentioning this.. but 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 - in truth it's pretty rubbish.

I can't be around people who:

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

- excitedly throw around words like patriarchy and privilege

- use words like 'mansplain' while complaining about casual sexism.. the brainlessness.. I just.. despair..

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

... that kind of thing. It would just be nice to meet someone who doesn't make generalisations about men, white, or straight people while being hypersensitive about the opposite or blindly 'support' whoever is the same demographic as them, whatever the situation. Fugging hell. Having never fitted in, in life, among the above categories, it's a bit rich to be shovelled in among 'them' when it suits someone's agenda. The hypocrisy of feminism in the west power-nauseates me :/.

I'm pretty ingenuous and having to talk about this upsets me; reducing the world to politics/demographics is just so small-minded.

Umm... I should also probably mention.. I definitely don't want to meet anyone into drugs; I just know who I am these days and would welcome the unusual experience of meeting someone with similar sensitivities.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Speaking to cats when there are no humans about
Writing and editing several novels.
Learning French
Learning to make games
Working on a weird tv show project

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 everything is 'awesome'
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anna Karenina, A Scanner Darkly, Dune, The Little Prince... loads! I'm reading the rubbish Dune sequels at the moment. I like a mix of poncey and exciting imaginative books.

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

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. Honestly, nothing sends me to sleep like a big list of bands. Or worse a bloody youtube link to some music video. 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 utterly vacuous and cringe-worthy and repetitive.
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. :(

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

Okc:

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

- 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.

I feel awkward at parties.

I can't be in Shoreditch. It's a condition known as discernment.

Exhibit N:

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.
I think Johnny Depp is a bad actor.
I bought a yellow care bear and then I bought a purple care bear.
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 shoved the cat because he was looking at me funny.
I think most people who go on and on about perceived oppression need/are it.
I don't want to go to New York.
I disrespect the social sciences and Jeremy Clarkson equally.
I don't read newspapers.

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 don't look too pleased with yourself in your pictures.

You want to be nice to me.

You empathise with this stuff.

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

Because I know this site:

You're not a hipster. Can't be overstated.

You don't think 'gender' is interesting.

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

You don't say stuff like 'pansexual' in your profile.

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

I dunno. You like games, books, comics.. YOU LIKE TINTIN and want to talk about them/him. You're actually alive, not a mechanical composite of various cultural motifs.

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