I'm also very artistic - I love to write, sing, act... and debate, if that counts as an art. Sometimes I can be a little bit too compassionate, feeling responsible for other people's upset or hurt when it really has nothing to do with me. On the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator, last I checked I was an ENFP... but the first time I took it, I was an INTP; I'm a natural introvert who's learned to love being with other people over time, but who sometimes still needs a little alone time to unwind. I tend to have amazing, grandiose ideas that I don't always follow through with, though lately I've developed more self-discipline and I'm actually working on three different book projects concurrently.
My interests are fairly typical geek, with some hippie thrown in. They include comic books, role-playing games (tabletop and LARP), video games (especially retro consoles like SNES), tinkering with computers and Linux, good science fiction and fantasy of all types, movies (particularly mind-fuck cinema like David Lynch or Richard Kelly), camping, regional burn festivals (think Burning Man but smaller), Pennsic War, skiing, cats (I have two, and am watching a third for a friend), and religion / mythology / the occult. Psychology also interests me quite a bit... I'm thinking of going into some kind of mental health profession eventually. For now, though, I'm a freelance computer support guy. My company is called "The Computer Wizard".
About what I'm looking for: Although I'm not pagan myself, I tend to get along really well with pagans. The same is true with people who are in the SCA, into BDSM, poly, or furries... I have friends who are all of the above, despite being pretty vanilla myself. I tend to like things a certain way, but don't really identify as either dominant or submissive... it varies, as I think it does in most people.
I'm as likely to spend an hour having a philosophical, political or religious discussion with you as I am to spend that hour playing the Simpsons arcade game with you, or smoking a hookah with you... or all of the above at once, if you have the stamina. During that time, you'd probably be crawled upon and nuzzled by at least one or two of my cats, Mufasa and Nemo. I am a hardcore liberal in most ways, although I do believe pretty strongly in traditional marriage (in other words, if you and your SO are planning on having a kid together, that means you should get married). While I'm pro-choice, I think it's pretty despicable to be using abortion as a regular form of birth control... it really should not be taken lightly, and I would support mandatory sterilization for women who frequently use it instead of condoms. When it comes to issues like these, I always enjoy debating with someone who disagrees, as long as you're someone who understands that a person can disagree with you and still be worthy of respect.
