My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom, wisdom is not truth, truth is not beauty, beauty is not love, love is not music. Music is the best. " - Frank Zappa

HERE'S THE DEAL: I am interested in meeting people in a non-computerized context. I have enough internet-based friends as it is.

Now that's over with, about me.

I'm a dynamic and creative individual who frequently and spontaneously breaks into song - or bursts out snippets of a conversation that only I can hear ("Or should I say: Declan MacDonald, INTERNATIONAL ART THIEF!"). I doodle, I drum on my knees. I will yell at the television screen, especially when something stupid is on.

I am polyamorous. Getting a message from me does not mean I'm trying to arrange a threesome or do something behind a partner's back.

I am also unabashedly a geek. Comic books, sci-fi movies/TV, medieval reenactment, cartoons, games of all sorts - these are all intrinsically part of who I am. My hobbies, my clothes, my sense of humor are saturated with geekisms. I don't have many requirements, but the willingness to be exposed to multiple levels of geekiness is one of them.

More than anything, I want to be a time-traveling mad scientist from the 1890s with a tails coat and an airship. But I'll settle for being Buck Rogers or John Steed.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been currently undergoing the kind of self-discovery and introspection that is usually attributed to Bodhisattva or Toltec Shamans. As such, it's sparked a massive personality dump in me right now. Try not to get any on your shoes.

I'm now employed doing technical support. I hope to be able to get back to school - my ultimate goal is to get into film making somehow. It'll happen.

I live with two cats: one mine, the other my former roommate's. I will spend days making up conversations that they have with each other. (She's a spoiled princess and he's a slow-brained mama's boy! It's a comedy that must be seen to be believed!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Plucking obscure trivia out of the ether. (IE: Grover Cleveland could not only write with both hands, but in two separate languages at the same time.) I rock pub quizzes like a Skorpions concert during a hurricane (that was also named Hurricane Skorpions.) I am also very good - and fiercely competitive - at board games.

Speaking of which...

Games. ALL THE GAMES. Board games, video games, card games (especially poker): the lot. Playing games is a wonderful way to get to know someone.

(Not mind games. I have no tolerance for the emotionally manipulative.)

(And not bedroom games either. Okay, maybe later. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.)

Cooking - I can make a curry that is like tantric sex in your taste buds. If your mouth can't handle having a Kundalini experience in it - you don't want me cooking for you.

Writing - I write mostly science fiction and screenplays, but every now and then I think about dusting off the ol' "Mr. Belvedere/ALF" fic again.

On that note: converting pop culture references into Elizabethan-era English.

"Dost thine milkshake bringeth all rude knaves to thine yard?"

Just about anything else creative. I draw, I sing, I dance - I am a left-brained jack-of-all-trades.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
First: that I'm tall. 6'6" and 280 lbs is hardly inconspicuous.

Second: My thick mane of hair. It has recently been cut, and I'm liking it short now. Plus lately it's felt like the reason why I was keeping it long was so other people could enjoy it - not a good thing.

Third: My eyes. I tend to make eye contact a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My tastes are pretty eclectic, but here goes.

(a) Books: Illuminatus! by RA Wilson, Philip K. Dick, Dune, Umberto Eco, Christopher Moore, Irvine Welsh, Tom Robbins.

(b) Movies: Too goddamn many to list, but I'll watch anything by David Cronenberg, Terry Gilliam, Stanley Kubrick, Luis Bunuel, Pedro Almodovar, or Akira Kurosawa.

(c) Music: I listen to anything with a good beat to it. (Except most Country that's come out after 1980 - romanticizing a rural lifestyle is one thing, but most "Modern Country" is a celebration of drinking, spousal abuse, and hating on minorities.)

One of my hobbies is scouring the share groups for obscure bands that no one's ever heard of before. (like Os Mutantes) My hard drive is full of World music and pop songs from non-English speaking countries. (I just got ahold of a playlist of North African revolutionary rap.)

I'm also a HUGE fan of mashups. So if you get a mix CD from me, expect to hear Metallica remixed with Herbie Hancock (or something equally bizarre).

(d) Food: I'm a gourmand of sorts and enjoy all kinds of cuisine, especially Japanese (including sushi), Chinese, East Indian, and Italian. I'm also a pretty good cook too and will do so if asked. (Sometimes if I'm not asked - I hope you like baked goods..)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1 - Victorian-era time-travel. Woe betide the man who flings himself 'cross the decades to a vulgar land filled with foul beasts.

2 - Butterscotch. It is so underrated as a dessert topping, and rather versatile.

3 - Espionage fiction. Everything I know about relationships I learned from Ian Fleming.

4 - Japanese Role-Playing video games. They're like if The Lord of the Rings was written by William S. Burroughs.

5 - Gravity. Null-gravity environments cause so many social faux pas.

6 - My cadre of fanatic assassins and spies. Don't look behind you, just don't.

However, here is a list of six things I CAN do without:

1 - People who think that curing mental disorders are a matter of "dealing with it." It's about as dick a move as telling a paraplegic that they're in a wheelchair because they're lazy.

2 - People who can't take a compliment. I rarely have ulterior motives, if you think my positive comments on your appearance, actions, or behavior are merely a way to get you into bed, you need some SERIOUS SELF-ASSESSMENT.

3 - People who give me a means of contact (phone #, email) and then never respond. If you aren't sincere about maintaining contact with me, don't waste my time.

4 - People who want to "fix" me. I already know what's broken, if I needed any more fixing, I'd hire a professional.

5 - Since the topic is broached, people who want me to "fix" them. I'm a sympathetic listener, and can offer advice, but I'm not a psychiatrist nor a life counselor. It's that whole dragging the horse to water/making it drink paradox.

6 - People who don't respect my boundaries. I'm a person, not a pet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to best wring my hands about my opponents doings without seeming too foppish.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to decypher the Voynich Manuscript in my quest to find the fabled land of Xanadu...

...Either that or watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have bipolar disorder, it is being managed quite well on my own - but my behavior can sometimes take weird jags at random.

I'm also not really from the year 1890, but my body is.
