My self-summary
My girlfriend and I have an open relationship, the specifics of which are available upon request. She's a homebody, I'm the adventurer, it works for us, and we have been ridiculously happy with the results. We're in it for the long haul.

I'm a dad, I work with computers for a living, and I'm a moderately complicated sort of guy. I have an amazing daughter who enjoys tormenting me with questions like, "Daddy, why are we made of meat?" and who dislikes simple answers such as,"Because it makes cannibalism a valid survival strategy in an emergency!" She did start eyeing fellow passengers pretty quickly when we got stuck in an elevator that one time, though.

I am focused, driven, and visionary.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to take over the world.

I prefer the phrase "global optimization" rather than "global domination" because really, who wants the day to day administrative task of governing when a few tweaks in the right places and a little bit of mind control will accomplish the same thing?

I figured out how to fix my own broken heart, and given how much of a pain in the ass THAT was, fixing the rest of the world seems simple by comparison.
I’m really good at
Taking conversations way deeper than expected. Analytical thought. Growing facial hair for fun and profit. Art. Writing. Terse, one word answers to... Never mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's probably the mustache. I'm sporting an increasingly ridiculous / awesome handlebar, which I grew out so I could be Satan for Halloween. I talk to it sometimes when I get lonely. Don't judge me.

As it is, if I flip my collar up and wear a skullcap, I could be Ming the Merciless.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: American Gods, Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, The Book of the Five Rings, Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, REAMDE, Ready Player One, Aristoi, Old Man's War, The Chronicles of Amber, Machine Man, Lexicon, Soon I will be Invincible, The Dresden Files, Bridge of Birds.. and many more. I read. A lot.

Movies: Boondock Saints, Fight Club, The Incredibles, The Princess Bride, Sanjuro, Brick, Scott Pilgrim, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Amelie, Spirited Away (most Miyazaki, really), Cabin in The Woods, Iron Man, The Avengers, Inception, Looper, RED, Nightmare before Christmas

Music: Cake, Radiohead, The National, Deathcab for Cutie, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Tom Waits, Regina Spektor, Morphine, Metric, White Zombie, Nick Drake, Rage Against the Machine... my tastes are broad, and I'm looking to expand them more.

Food: Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, sushi, and my own home-brew experimental curry that many people have eaten and gone on to live normal lives.
Actually, that's a lie. The brave mutants who are willing to be my test subjects weren't destined for normal lives to begin with.
The six things I could never do without
My daughter, books, perspective, patience, optimism, and my continued inability to set people on fire with my mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Relationships, self observation, applied psychology and the theory of mind. What I will draw next. People. They are shiny.

At my strangest, is spend a lot of time thinking about the intersection of human consciousness and improbable numinous crap that gets hard to talk about very quickly.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home with my girl being ridiculous, or out with my buddies discovering the secrets of the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I keep my head shaved because of the embarassing genetic defect that I posess that causes my hair to WRITHE LIKE DEMON-EELS if it grows longer than 1/4 of an inch long.
My daughter has inherited this trait, which most of the time expresses itself as adorable curls. It is only when we try to comb out the tangles that the demon-eels emerge.

Ok, fine, I will actually put something personal here. I write poetry. I occasionally inflict it on other people, probably due to a profound lack pf empathy for the sanity and esthetic sensibilities of others. Here's something I wrote this year.

My friend was a man
who had stitched together
his own heart;
The Sorrow found him
when he was young, you see,
and he had wired the shards together
with Dylan, The Boss,
and the beautiful arrogance
of being too damn smart
to accept the stupidity,
the brutality,
of a world without God.

I loved him on sight.
I don't trust the unbroken, you see,
and by that standard,
this
was a trustworthy man.
I watched him wrestle demons
who knew my name,
and stretched their claws at my ghosts,
sighing in fond remembrance.
I saw him bend,
and the cracks spread out from his smile
as drowning, he clung to the Sorrow.

I wanted to tell him,
You don't know the first thing
about self destruction.
Having sailed high and brought myself low,
every single time,
when I feet the reef
Scraping beneath my hull
Splintering the fine trim vessel
Shredding the proud full sails,
I looked behind me to find
No hand on the tiller
But my own.

My heart should be a cinder.
No one should trust me.
My name should not be spoken.
No one should grant me mercy.
My doom should be stark and clear for all to see,
shining above my head.
If I have tricked a few
Into overlooking
the smiles both strange and cruel,
they were fools.
All grist for the mill
All bones for my bread
All brittle branches crackling
In my pyre to Kali.
I am pale with the ashes
Of my folly.

So drink your Pabst Blue Ribbon
until the ground rises to meet you.
To you I raise my glass.
But she is not your master,
Nor mine.

I found another,
And when finally
I retraced the paths of fire within me,
When I felt the heat of her lips
whisper across my neck,
When I carved her name upon my heart,
two shadows passed over the sun.

The first shadow hissed
in the voice of the wind;
"The brighter the star,
the faster the fade,
until only the sky remains,
and you'll always think
there is nobody
you can talk about this with."

The second beat
silken basso moth wings
at the edge of my ear;
"It's all in your head.
Gods are by their nature
unknowable.
This is all there is.
Faith is wishful thinking
powered by force
of your will.
It is the betrayal of rationality,
the closing of mind by choice,
you fucking coward."

And the mouth of the wyrm
opened beneath me.
The long spiral road
beckoned
through blackened teeth
and molten throat.
I would have gone, too,
my feet knew the way,
If not for Her hand
on my shoulder.

But I didn't have to say
a thing.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 21–50
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you prefer people who can communicate in complete sentences (after coffee, at least). Before coffee it's grunts, head-butts, and "Hodor."

Message me if you're interested in doing awesome things here in Austin. I have lived here a couple years now and haven't seen nearly enough of the city.

Message me if you think you can deal with seeing someone who is on a long term relationship with someone else, and you are capable of behaving like a sane, rational adult about it.

I am looking for people who are on fire, the sort of mixed up, complicated misfits who can't stand the fact that the world isn't as freaking amazing as they know it should be, and are dead set about changing that.

I am currently open to new friends, casual dating, partners in crime, experimental curry test subjects, and gleeful minions seeking to join the ranks of my local chapter of Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow.
