Introspecting. Extrospecting.* Writing silly love letters.
* This is totally a word. It is now.
Finding neat new things, both in the real world and on the Internet.
Look at my profile picture. What do you see? Just another Asian-American tech industry blancmange, right? Smug and stoic on the outside, polished dull on the inside. Deep pockets, empty pants. Listens to Jason Mraz instead of Johnny Cash, sees Andrew Lloyd Webber shows but has never heard of Harold Pinter, thinks of Keanu Reeves, not Slavoj Zizek, when he hears the words "welcome to the desert of the real." No dreams. Cares more about problems than people. Poster child of the Southeast Asian underpopulation crisis.
Take a good look. Now close your eyes and imagine the exact opposite--his moustache-twirling, muse-courting, savagely intellectual doppelganger, minus the moustache.
I am a longtime friend of the Silent Barn. http://www.silentbarn.org/ If you haven't been, the new, re-Kickstarted Barn is a hive of unfettered dreams, even grander than the old. It's the kind of place that thinks nothing of having a barbershop (with the chairs and mirror and fancy scissors and everything) open for business in the middle of an experimental noise show. Not even as an installation. Just because, because.
I like music that is very gentle or very fierce and not a lot in between. Thus, I live a secret triple life. (Different shows, different venues, different groups of friends.) Though not a musician myself, I am a familiar face in the New York chiptune scene (a lo-fi marriage between EDM and punk rock), and am no stranger to raging mosh pits and muggy secret basements. However, I am also that guy sipping a jack and coke in a near-empty dive on a weeknight, alone in the audience, in thrall to a lone folk guitarist from Omaha quietly losing their shit down a fretboard. I'd be more than happy to introduce you to either scene, and even happier if you're already well acquainted.
I used to read literary fiction, books by brilliant but sad old men who live by the pen, will die by the pen, and will never know anything but the pen. Spec lit was a compromise, but not a fulfilling one. So I went back to sci-fi, my childhood loves, and discovered with astonishment that sometimes space aliens and robots can say a lot more about the human condition, even to a grown-ass adult, than a bunch of affluent aging MFAs writing about having affairs with their undergrads.
I talk about old video games the way blues men talk about their exes.
A failed attempt at getting into grad school has cultivated in me a weird obsession with media theory. If you ever want to get me super excited about something ultimately insignificant, ask me about chess and Hamlet sometime.
