Simply, to summarize myself would take far too long and would
involve too many pages of text (and a 9pt font at that). I'm
verbose and can be quite rambling, and yet, at the same time, I
don't talk much.
I enjoy learning and the accumulation of knowledge, or at least,
the accumulation of theories but that's an existential distinction
I won't go into here.
Who else am I? A hopeless romantic with delusions of grandeur,
while still wanting to remain relatively anonymous. Oh, I can also
be paradoxal, but in this age of boundless information and
pseudo-human contact, it's bound to happen. But I think the easiest
way to state that is, I am a cynical-optimist.
Oh, one more thing. I have a list of about 50 countries I want to
visit before I croak, and at some point, I do plan on just jumping
in my car and heading out to get lost in the great wild wilderness
of the territory. Basically, I have big ideas for big adventures
that I'm building toward. Haha.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at listening, being a loyal friend (to a fault)
(oh, and on the subject of To A Fault, being honest)... Rambling
about whatever may be on my mind, like to the point that it could
be a fault, but that's neither here nor there... I'm also really
good at using the ellipse and parenthesis when talking.
However, I'm also pretty decent at writing, at being a writer,
weaving fun little intricate tales and stories (mostly short to
not-so-short fiction as of late)...
The first things people usually notice about me
My quiet nature paired with my verbosity. In a group of people, I
will sit back and listen and observe the people and their dynamics,
at least until I'm comfortable enough to talk (assuming this is a
group where I only know a couple people) more openly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books? That'd be like picking a favorite child. But maybe
I can whittle it down to a top ten kind of thing. American Gods by
Neil Gaiman; Paper Towns by John Green; Innocence by Jane
Mendelsohn (for a lot of reasons); Survivor by Chuck Palanhiuk;
Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien; A Clockwork Orange, Anthony
Burgess; IT, Stephen King; Thus Spake Zarathustra, Nietzsche; To
Kill a Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye and... anything by Hunter S
Movies, my second love... Another need for a Top Ten list, I'm
afraid, but this one should be a bit easier. Metropolis (hands down
my number one film of all time), Citizen Kane, Batman Begins,
Yojimbo, Dr Strangelove, Rear Window, the original Star Wars
Trilogy, Coraline, Ghostbusters, Lost Highway and Mulholland
I don't watch a lot of television, but I do have a strange love for
Sherlock, Doctor Who, Torchwood, and an even stranger love for
Music. Impossible to even begin to explain, I love music, and
without it, I would be lost, but you know... Tom Waits, Nick Cave,
Led Zeppelin, Saul Williams, The Dresden Dolls, Jane's Addiction,
Nine Inch Nails, Tool, APC, Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Robert
Johnson, Jack Johnson, Buddy Guy, etc...
The six things I could never do without
Music, movies, books, art, writing, a good news feed, computer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Idiosyncrasies, philosophies, human rights, The World,
abstractions, and a host of other things that more or less defy
definition or specification. Ie, I spend a lot of time thinking
about most everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually, writing or trying to, or just spending time at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I have no secrets, only answers to questions that have not
You should message me if
If you're curious, intrigued, confused, or just want to.
