My self-summary
My job involves technology, but I'm not a computer geek or other techie type. It's just an easy, decent-paying job that lets me listen to music while I do it. From home.

I'm finding I become more open with every year lately. A lot of people think they're being themselves, but in reality it takes much longer to figure out what that really means than most people think--even years after they thought they had it nailed. I like to think I'm less inhibited/afraid to act in ways most people won't accept(for various reasons,) but at the same time, being sure you're not just trying to impress others has a learning curve. I've made great progress in my days.

I prefer Denton's scene to anywhere else's in the immediate area, hence my listing my location as that. I don't live there, but it's not a bad drive for me.

I'm more or less from New York City, in that I became an "adult" there, though personality-wise I can't be reasonably classified as a New Yorker. Probably more like a West Coaster.

I have a few interests that aren't artistic/creative(like history,) but they're very secondary to my artistic side.
What I’m doing with my life
My work-at-home job. Finally got it!

Artsy stuff.
I’m really good at
Being fair, as in sticking to the facts. I didn't always know what this meant, but learning what it was will always be one of the most important lessons in my life.

Writing.

Impressions/dialects. Ask away.

Acting. I'm much better for screen/voice acting than stage, but I have done some stage work, which is like a career military vet saying he's done some Vietnam work.

Making, listening to, and analyzing music. Fairly, too, even if a certain genre isn't my thing.

Remembering things in detail indefinitely. I have some stories spanning over twenty years with this one.

Other right-brained activities(yes, this means I am not a mathlete.)
The first things people usually notice about me
On a more "superficial" level? My well-groomed, neatly-chiseled, drop-dead-handsome Anglo-Celtic good looks. People eventually learn that I simply do not age. You might say I have "a little Elijah Wood thing going on".

I am a die-hard fan of evidence-based solutions, regarding philosophy, lifestyle, ethics, spirituality, and so on. To some, it's paradoxical that I'd also be quite emotional, passionate about all things artistic, and cracking jokes, but here I am. This means that instead of being robotic in person, social situations happen to be(along with art) a case where I am more spontaneous, intuitive and instinctive by far, unless something urgent or otherwise serious is taking place that calls for a more "clinical" way of looking at it.

People constantly ask if the glasses are real. They are. Where I was inspired by them is a mild secret you may one day learn.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(A) Fantasy, science fiction, Humor-driven books, history, crime thrillers, but really, as with any medium, I seek out whatever I expect to relate to, such as:

Anything on mythology, with an admitted slight bias toward the Norse and Greek forms of paganism.

Crime fiction
Philip K. Dick(pretty much anything except The Pre-Persons)
World history
Anything about lucid dreaming
Motherless Brooklyn
George R. R. Martin
Isaac Asimov, including anthologies he edited
DC(and no, Batman is not my favorite. Good, but not even in the top ten for me.)
Marvel
Scott Pilgrim
Manga
Books on art
True crime, mostly ones about the mob.

(B) Many of many different genres. Here are just a few examples:

Winnebago Man
Chasing Ghosts
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Adventureland
Insomnia(1997 Norwegian original--haven't seen the remake yet)
Ghost World
Warm Bodies
Port of Call New Orleans
Better Off Dead
This Is England(film and both TV series)
Drive
Bad Santa
Hanna
Magnolia
Fargo
Cemetery Junction

Movies/TV are very different from music for me because I find that there's still plenty of great material on mainstream TV and even in Hollywood sometimes(though doubling ticket prices out of nowhere was uncalled for, so I tend to see films on DVD these days.) You don't have to dig nearly as deep underground to find good stuff in these fields as you do in music.

(C)
Shows I'm really into include:

True Detective
Banshee
Sons of Anarchy
Kaiji

(E) I'm pescetarian, and not preachy(or activist, for that matter.) Not very picky about food, but some's better than others, and I like most things originating from the Far East or Europe that are within my dietary restrictions. I chew gum like Rod Serling smoked. Speaking of food, I also have a strong urge to see Anthony Bourdain pummeled into humility.
The six things I could never do without
Music.

My sense of humor--I'm fairly clownish, in a non-juggalo kind of way.

Fiction--including movies/TV shows/books/comics. I'll also include creating fiction here as a need.

Non-internet social interaction, which not everyone enjoys as much as I do these days. Feel like hanging out in the non-internet sometime? We already have something in common!

The cultures of the UK(especially England,) Scandinavia, and Japan.

Secular meditation. I have no mystical beliefs whatsoever, but the practice itself benefits me on many levels, and I'm not even that experienced with it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the internet's changed so many things well within two decades.

What Would Loki Do?(Not the Marvel version)
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing it by ear. Rigid schedules aren't my style.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to actually think the Police Academy movies were funny back when I was nine years old. That's old enough to know better.

I don't post every random fact about myself on here, but you can ask me anything. I'm extremely open, and unashamed of almost anything someone could ask me about. The first paragraph in this section is a rare exception.

I'm all for making progress in life, but absolutely hate the idea some people have that once you turn X years old you have to become incredibly boring, have less of a sense of humor and resign yourself to acting more and more like a 90-year old simply because "that's what people do." If you disagree, you'll hate me as much as I hate Pat Sajak.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–50
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you're the artsy type(regarding music, graphic design, photography--you name it.)

You can politely and intelligently explain to me what's so great about Mad Men besides the sets and costumes(I've seen the first three seasons, and will probably watch the fourth, so let it never be said that I'm closed-minded.)

If you're just looking for friends, that's peachy as well.

If you are spiritual on some level but don't mind my agnosticism/atheism/whatever you want to call it, I think we can get along. If you think morality needs religion, however, we most certainly won't.

I'll say here that I am heavily *influenced* by aspects of Buddhism, but I stop short of labeling myself as such because A) There are definitely forms of it that involve dogma, and B) If there is a form of it that doesn't, I'm too new to studying the guy to know for sure of its existence. Think of me as a person who's as secular as you can get and who always wants hard evidence before believing something, and who trusts the science behind the benefits of things like meditation.
