Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a professional office-type job that pays the bills and
allows me to create, though it sucks up a lot of the time that I
could use to actually make things (funny how that works out). I
have a very long list of potential projects to do that I will
probably never get to the end of, especially since I keep adding to
it. I sometimes take breaks from making things to recharge the
creative banks by reading, watching movies, listening to new music,
I like to cook and enjoy cooking for other people. I cook a lot of
Asian (Indian and Southeast Asian, mainly), Middle Eastern, and
African dishes. If you have the gene that makes cilantro tastes
like soap or if you are a vegetarian you may not appreciate my
I enjoy going to art events. I realize that is vague/possibly
cliche but it probably gets your mind moving in the right
direction. Lately I have been interested in various types of
performance art. Again, probably vague but maybe that will give us
something to talk about.
I like to travel though it's been a while since I left the US.
Wouldn't mind a travel buddy. Just saying.
I really like fresh air and love to spend time outside (I go hiking
in the Metroparks fairly regularly). Go figure, I live in Ohio
where you can't go outside six months out of the year.
I'm now semi-regretting my choice of screen names since I
discovered that in addition to being a seer in Greek mythology,
Tiresias was also a transsexual. I have to wonder what sort of
message that sends, but I don't feel like changing it and having to
answer all those questions again. In any case, you probably didn't
even know that before now anyway. And if you did, maybe you clicked
on my profile just out of curiosity. Please be assured, I am male.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading and writing a lot, just not quite the way I'd expected.
Mulling over buying a new camera to get back into photography.
Painting and making things when I find the time and inspiration.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depending on my environment, I may be overdressed, wearing lights
of some kind, or on fire, so probably one of those.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have very wide-ranging tastes so I could go on and on to answer
I started a tradition years ago of reading a different Tom Robbins
novel every time I left the US. I only have "Half Asleep in Frog
Pajamas" left. Something about his writing gets me in thee right
frame of mind for travel. I also read a fair amount of non-fiction,
including travelogues and historical stuff, and sci-fi (I enjoy
Neal Stephenson, to name one author).
Movies...I tend to like indie/arthouse type movies and a lot of
documentaries. I also enjoy the occasional bad movie (going back to
the books bit and overlapping with the movies..."The Disaster
Artist" is a must read if you have seen the epic train wreck that
is The Room").
I fairly open when it comes to music and I will usually go to any
show (especially if it's free). Lately I have been interested in
bands that blend genres, if that makes sense. I recently discovered
Pandora and I've been enjoying that a lot. I try to stump it but it
is surprisingly good at finding music like other music, no matter
how unique I think it is. I like pyschobilly and some EDM (lately
I've been enjoying electro-swing...it's just fun), to name a couple
genres, but I also like neo-cabaret and a lot of metal (and
As I mentioned above, I like to cook and I am quite partial to
Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian food. I will try just about
anything. Just not brain tissue (at least, not until the zombie
apocalypse). When I went to Argentina I made sure to learn the
Spanish word for "brain" so I didn't accidentally order it off the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My brain, heart, and lungs. A book to read. The world outside my
apartment. Mystery (I love Bigfoot!!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Traveling. That is probably my biggest interest. I want to go
everywhere. I also like to think about becoming a space pirate.
That's why I'm a big supporter of NASA...the sooner we start
building space ships and space stations, the sooner I can start
stealing said space ships and using them to attack and plunder said
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at the bar, chatting with friends.

You have something to say. Seriously...I prize decent conversation.
