My self-summary
While I normally have no issue with people and things and places (and all other categories in 20 Questions), I believe there's a real chance I might exist in a Daniel Clowes work. I'm struggling between being a part of this big, crazy, interconnected modern world, and giving it all the finger by living in a converted shipping container isolated somewhere in the woods. I'm stuck between being the person I want to be, the person I am, and an idealized form that can't actually exist. But then again, I guess everybody is. I'll just settle for not contributing to society's downward spiral.

Wait, are you still reading my profile? Really? You're not deterred be all these multiple blocky paragraphs on a dating site? Wow, alright. That's a good sign. I'm an INTJ on the Meyers-Brigg chart, which means I have this great big bountiful mass of aspirations, then fume and foam at the mouth because I can't make them a reality. I keep trying to make everything perfect, ignoring the fact that perfect is an illusion and perfection is an unachievable construct, but I don't care because I just want the things in my head expressed outwards in the real world. At least I have practice.

I take supremely enjoy television and moves. I like all media actually, but those are the two biggies. I like seeing the fruits of peoples' labor manifest. We're a society defined by our culture, and I believe it's important to encourage those who pursue it as a career path.

I like foreign, arthouse and classic film. I can quote any episode of The Simpsons first ten seasons. I know all about craft and microbrew beers. I can offer a studied opinion on anything with an electric guitar. I can lead a lengthy discussion on dadaism, absurdism and postmodernism, but can also dole out a perfectly timed zinger from Firefly. I can jot down 1000 words on any subject without breaking a sweat. And while this may be only sporadically useful, I'm one hell of a ringer at pub quiz.

Really, I'm looking for another person. Somebody who doesn't believe in bullshit and nonsense. Somebody who lives deliberately and drinks life from the fountain. There's definitely a great individual lying somewhere under this mass of pablum. I enjoy life, and I'd like someone to enjoy it with.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
At what point on the path to adulthood do we abandon our childhood delights? Are they burned on a pyre, or are they saved for reclamation at a later date?

Were all those alternative bands from the 90s actually as great as I recall, or am I just ridiculously nostalgic?

Why do I have such a strange fascination with TV commercials, yet accept a strong cultural jamming persona?

Where do the ducks go in the Winter?

...And at any given moment, I'm imagining a scenario regarding cryptids, mythology, legends, and/or folklore.
You should message me if
I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what's best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who's fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She's playing with her jewelry
She's putting up her hair
She's touring the facility
And picking up slack.

I want a girl with a short skirt and a looooooong jacket.
The two of us
