Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I open my eyes I can see the world and a good many things
in it. With my mind and the help of other people I can get some
idea of what lies beyond what I can see. If I look down I can see
my hands body and feet. My hands look nice they are fine without
being overly so, tanned, smooth. My feet are similar - less tanned,
my toenail is looking a bit long. My body is covered in clothes. If
you put another body in the same clothes they would probably look
similar. In the edge of my vision I can see my hair - like some
sort of mane. What I can't see is my face (well I can with the help
of a mirror. But I can't look at myself in a mirror and naturally
interact with other people at the same time - maybe I could get
somebody to follow me around with a video camera).
I have a good grasp on all the pieces of the puzzle except the
one I am. I get clues from the things that other people tell me of
myself - but can't really tell if you are going find me good
looking or not. or If you think I am intelligent - sometimes I feel
smart and sometimes I feel not. At the end of the day I am just me
- the world happens around me and I try and make sense of it all. I
could say lots about what I think I am but if we were sit and talk
for half an hour you will probably have a much better Idea of who I
am. Than I could write in 20 pages.
I am a forest dweller, a Floosey, and a Pirate Hoe
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I live near the centre of the city of Brisbane. In a small room in a
crooked old house.
I have a Mattress, a bookshelf, a computer, some musical
Instruments, a camera, a mirror and a pile of clothes -
that will put back on their rack soon. The Walls are covered in
Photos and Drawings/Paintings. Outside my door is a
large Mural done by my predecessor. Next door there is a
Where I work is also a theatre though I work in Architectural
Visualisation. Mostly I am a code monkey - though just about
everybody I work with are also musicians in their spare time. We
have an Office Guitar.
Emotionally I am in hibernation and might be for a little while
yet due to being stuck in a very tricky situation. I have been
realising that my mind and body don't always agree on what is best.
Because of this I have been something of a workaholic - of which
the upside is that I am relatively well of financially - compared
to where I usually am.
After missing my camera for a good section of the year - I have
been getting in and taking lots of good shots - to the point where
I feel I might try and get my work ready for exhibition over the
summer break. you can see photos here, here and here. Painting and drawing have been taking a bit of a back
seat lately (only so many hours in the day - though I have started
classes recently). Instead I have been swimming lots, finding trees to sit
under and read and animals to watch (city botanic gardens are
awesome in this respect). I have pretty much dropped trying to play
Violin - and at the moment I am enjoying learning to play Cello, I have been playing
Bass for about a year now and I still do enjoy hammering along
on the guitar,and
making silly noises with my voice and looping them
most days I walk a couple of Kilometres - So I am fairly fit and
since I have been swimming I almost have muscles
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Procrastinating (also being in the moment)
Being emotionally reserved (working on this one)
Laughing (particularly the evil type of laugh)

than nothing has changed and I probably should have been
Sounding like I am absolutely sure of myself (I am usually not so I
am working on this one).
Making people realize the beauty in everyday life that they have
so blatantly missed. Also having a meaningful conversation and
being incredibly sweet :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People usually notice me - I don't find it easy to blend in. Even
when dressed as a zombie and surrounded by a few hundred other
people dressed like zombies people still single me out.
I asked a friend what he noticed about me and he said
My Hair. My Dress sense. My Candour.
A lot of people have commented on the fact that I smile a lot, also
A get told I am a gypsy a lot too. (maybe I am?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Right now I have a stack of music books that I am working
through - there are also photography books. On my bookshelf there
are a selection of computer books - either programming or art
related. There are books of some of my favorite artists and picture
references Anatomy and nudes, the natural world, interesting places
to travel to. Some books on physical fitness, cook books, Dungeons and
Dragons Manuals, an essay on morality throughout the ages,
Poems by Spike Milligan and a small amount of fiction I am
completely into raiding the local library for pretty much anything
that takes my fancy.
From my childhood I fondly remember Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit,
The Magick Faraway Tree, The Wishing chair, the Narnia
I haven't had TV or gone to the cinema for a long time now. But
I do occasionally watch DVDs on my computer. Lately mostly I have
been going through the studio Ghibli Collection, Some other Anime
series, I like movies with intelligence that don't reduce things to
good v.s. evil and that reflect on the beauty, preciousness and
complexity of life. Usually if I go to a video store I head
straight for the foreign or special interest section
I log my music at last.fm which will give you
all the details of what I listen to. In general music is a trigger
for my imagination and I tend to favor music that makes my
I am a vegetarian, I don't eat bananas. I am
trying to not eat sugar - I feel a lot better when I don't. Most of
what I have been eating has been Sushi, salads, Rice Dishes, whatever work orders for
dinner, simple Asian style food that can be cooked in a single
steamer - sprinkled with soy and sesame seeds. Or just random
things you find in Asian grocery stores
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well I am a human being and I have been programed - There are very
few things I could absolutely never do with out apart from the
things that are essential for human survival, food, shelter, air,
absence of aggressive humans wanting you dead. Instead I will list
six of my favourite things
1) My near and dear fellow travelers. I can't overstate how good
having like minds to be with is to the human condition (I am
talking about specific people here too - you know who you are and
2) The fact that I can speak my mind where I live and not get shot
- otherwise quite honestly I would probably be dead by now.
3) A vivid Inner world that can be channeled through art and more
4) An outer world that in spite of human civilization is not yet
screwed up beyond repair. Seeing new creatures, Plants, Places
fills the mind with wonder and makes me very happy.
5) The feeling you get when you wonder at the fact of how
stupendously strange that it is to be alive at all (and all the
questioning that goes along with that).
6) I admit it - I like women...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just how am I going to implement feature x in game engine y. That
is my day job and it consumes an awful lot of my time.
What it means to be human.If the universe is purely deterministic
then why does life exist - shouldn't everything just follow the
path of least resistance. If the universe was made by a divine
agent - what does that mean? Does that necessarily mean that there
is anything beyond the cycle of life and death.
That cute girl that seems to like me - what If I had said this last
time we talked or what If I say that next time we meet. This is
something I definitely guilty of - I am doing my best to try and
stick to the here and now - difficult isn't it.
That would be cool to make/do. This applies to Music, Arts or
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Last few months I have been mostly working on into the wee small
hours of the morning.
Even when I have time off I don't tend to a lot of going out being
somebody with less than mainstream tastes in music, who is
currently quite shy around people and doesn't really drink or do
drugs there really is not a lot of venues that do a lot for me - or
people in those venues to meet.
Monday is my main social night of the week and there are sometimes
parties or other such things on Saturday evenings.
If I work at an event I will obviously be at that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
