I've been moving around a lot lately. Currently I'm in California. Not my favorite place to be, but it could definitely be worse. I'd trade sunshine for rain any day of the week. I think, optimally, I'd live in a cobblestone and wood castle on Ganymede or Titan with a Nether portal network linking back to Earth for faster travel. On the plus side, I'm moving to England this weekend (June 2014).
If you ask me to play Pretty Pretty Princess with your little sister, I will crush her, not because I want to be the PPP, but to demonstrate that accomplishing goals requires effort.
I am habitually aloof, not not cute, and true to my school.
Word-Books: Galápagos is my favorite of the less obvious Vonneguts. I'm also a fan of The Stranger, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Solaris, Lolita, et cetera. My Kindle's name is Ice-Nine.
Movies: The Birds, Alien, Terminator 2, Scanners, Up, and so forth.
TV: The Prisoner, Farscape, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Pushing Daisies, The Star Treks (to varying degrees), The IT Crowd, Doctor Who, Deadwood, Twin Peaks.
Music: The Magnetic Fields, Pixies, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Bright Eyes, ABBA, The Magnetic Fields, Neko Case, The Beach Boys, Sugarcubes, The Magnetic Fields, Rilo Kiley, The New Pornographers, Amanda Palmer, The Magnetic Fields, Dar Williams, others. My favorite albums last year were I'm Having Fun Now by Jenny and Johnny and The Suburbs by Arcade Fire. So far this year it's Eureka by Mother Mother.
Games: Team Fortress 2 (I have so many hats), Metroid/Castlevania, music games. Cooperation and exploration. I manage a small Minecraft server for my closest, most trusted friends. Good times had by all. Except for in the Nether, because that place is boring.
Food: Thai food. Curry is pretty good in general. Lots of food is good.
If I ever get trapped on a desert island, though, I'll settle for just Stephin Merrit. I'll be the Anni-Frid to his Agnetha and maybe finally get good at singing harmony.
Recently, I've been thinking about Bronn from Game of Thrones. Here's a video of his actor singing some Roy Orbison.

back to the bench where your clothes were stolen.
In, at my computer, hunched over a drawing, working.
I used to have an Australian accent (having learned English in Australia), but I crushed it mercilessly. Its revenge takes the form of [əʉ]s in words like "no".
If you want a cool artfriend. I don't want any dates or casual sex or what have you. (I kept this account open after entering a monogamous relationship because I've met some of my best platonic friends through this site. I'm not secretly asking for sex or anything by having an OKC account. I like directness. If you don't want a platonic friend, I'm not your guy. No hard feelings! [hur hur])
If you can play the bass line of Sweet-Lovin' Man by The Magnetic Fields, do not hesitate. I really like playing music with others, even if I'm shy about it because I'm not very good yet.
Finally, if you're astronaut Mike Dexter, John Crichton, or heck, even a non-fictional astronaut.
