OKC reckons I'm more sloppy than average and less love driven, but while I usually admire the algorithms, I would argue that societies priorities and the paradigm of these concepts is pretty distorted. We learn from mistakes, so I'd rather get out there and experience life than stand back and worry how I can make things perfect. And Love? I'm all for emotional involvement if it feels right, just I'm more about appreciation and compersion than possession. I lean toward sex positivity where communication and respecting boundaries are integral. If that's not clear - by nature I prefer practising forms of ethical non-monogamy and admire relationship anarchy.
Ultimately life is a bit of an oddity and as much as people seem to project otherwise, I don't think anyone really has a proper grasp of what's going on. I enjoy being facetious when it comes to superficial formalities and favour humour in most situations. Terrible puns, toilet humour, self deprecating humour and lowering the tone? Definitely. I was recently pruning apple trees with some others and one of the women couldn't quite reach and innocently said she needed my extra six inches. How can you NOT make a joke of that? Manners don't cost a thing and so long as you treat people well and be there for them when they need it then I think that's what matters.
In a nutshell, I like CULTURE, MISCHIEF, HUGS and FUN.
I typically enjoy meets, meals, movies & live local music with friends. Lifetime membership with the National Trust, I like a bit of adventure - places with historical / geographical interest & finding an old hidden pub with lots of character on the way is a nice bonus. A year going by without any of the following would be pretty dull for me: Festivals, camping, bonfires, raves / duffs, forests, trekking, mountains, I party, anime's good, gaming more a past-time but does a good job of bringing me back to it. Podcasts and debates on science and philosophy are great to have when doing activities which don't involve too much thought such as walking or constructing garden beds. I enjoy learning about mycology, space, quantum stuff.. There's a wealth of stuff out there & I'm never bored.
Historically I've enjoyed bridging social connections & making things happen. Always interested in different activities and ways of living.
Reclaiming my mind from the hands of cultural engineers, who want to turn me into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.
90's Pop / Dance
Metal is so diverse and I love it all.. Power, folk, battle, viking, pagan, black, death, melodeath, thrash, gothic, progressive, funeral, stoner, various acoustic bits.. Metalcore and flailing arm nonsense doesn't do it for me. Nu-Metal.. not so good either, couple of exceptions. If I go for rap metal it'll be more along the lines of RATM.
Punk and skatepunk, metal / punk crossover
All kinds of ambient
Psybient for those trippy moments
Trance & PsyTrance - Love Whirly Gig, Tribe of Frog. Planet Angel's music doesn't quite hold up to the aforementioned IMO.
Reggae, alone is brilliant, crossed over with dnb.. oh my word!
Techno, particularly minimal, breakbeat styled stuff
House, particularly funky & stuff with more energy, I like a bit of deep house, witch house seems interesting, I've gone off the old acid house as it just seems dated these days
Happy Hardcore! Hixxy, Vibes are favourites, Dougal did a fine set at Bangface 2013 so he deserves a mention.
Over my life I've played the piano on and off - I like to compose music & I'm making slow progress with Cubase and music production.
How I can be a better person.
"They're so brave" I thought.
I was on a bit of a comedown.
General enthusiasm is a big plus in what I'm looking for in others, people that contribute to the world in their own way. Like me you should be keen to meet people sooner than later - I carry the mindset that profiles are enough to gauge whether meeting is agreeable, without the need for more than a couple of messages. I'm human, approachable, and wouldn't be on here if I weren't interested in meeting people. So, please go for it and get in touch ;)
Also message me if you like hardcore german sparkle parties
