I also write short fiction. I'm no NaNoWriMo dabbler--I've got a creative writing degree and a portfolio of manuscripts yea tall, but print is dying and getting published is hard. Still. Can't stop, won't stop.
In much the same fashion as a silly OKCupid test, this talent gives people the impression that I'm a lot wiser than I really am.
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, blisteringly worldly, savagely intellectual doppelganger.
Now shave the moustache.
I am a longtime friend of the Silent Barn http://www.silentbarn.org/. It's a DIY space in Bushwick that serves as a experimental music venue, gallery, barbershop, record store, arts workshop, law firm, artists' residence, and hangout spot. For years I've been volunteering with Babycastles, a loosely Silent Barn-affiliated arts organization that installs pop-up arcades built from old computer parts and hand-painted wooden arcade cabinets.
I like music that is very gentle or very fierce and not a lot in between. I'm 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, nothing stirs my soul like the gentle, lonesome chirp of a steel-string acoustic guitar.
I used to read literary fiction, far more than I've ever had to write a paper or pass a class. After a few years I grew weary of how depressingly narcissistic it was, so I went back to sci-fi--my childhood love--and was delighted to learn 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. Still have a soft spot for Haruki Murakami, though.
I love webcomics and have very mixed feelings about Homestuck.
A colleague once called me "a walking Wikipedia of video games." I don't quite live up to that superlative, but I can see how I'd leave that impression, the way I talk about dead studios how 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.
I'm mortified by the horror stories I keep hearing from female friends about the awful things strange men on OKCupid say to them, and I'm trying really hard to not be one of those guys.
