My self-summary
I spend my days philosophizing the emptiness of my navel. I wonder if this is a clue to the void in universal values. And I wonder if the void is within the universal values or if it is within my being-in-the-world. Or, maybe I just need to try the other side of the mushroom.

My hobbies are writing poetry and other randomness, reading, listenig to music, reading and thinking aboutphilosophy, random art and music projects, and bizarre conversations with friends.

I'll say right now my atheism is not all that straightforward. I do have mystical leanings and a very slight curiosity about magic. My atheism is as much of a paradoxical and mystical stance as it is logical. If that seems wishy-washy then cool. But maybe we can have some interesting arguments.

Oh, and my Myers-Briggs is INFP (possibly borderline INTP and/or INFJ) if that means anything. Psychological testing instruments are always so much fun (to break).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a philosopher-poet working on a Master's of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I also do some art and poetry/music/noise projects (Right now I'm calling this aspect of myself Backdoor Sushi). A friend and I are looking into getting some stuff exhibited in a local gallery.
I’m really good at
I am really good at bringing up fractured philosophical questions and putting words, images, sounds, and concepts together in strange ways that somehow work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. I'm too busy noticing and thinking for myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Selected Works of Allen Ginsberg, On the Road (Kerouac), Counterculture Through the Ages, Neil Gaiman Sandman books, Naked Lunch, Being and Nothingness (Sartre), Basic Writings of Heidegger, Tao Te Ching, poems by Ai, Emily Dickenson, Rimbaud, Wallace Stevens, Nausea (Sartre), Notes from Underground (Dostoevsky), Metamorphosis (Kafka), little bit of random sci-fi, horror, fantasy

Movies: Sid and Nancy, Crash (David Cronenberg), The Secretary, Sex Lies and Videotape, Mullholland Drive, Donnie Darko, The House Next to the Cemetary, George Romero dead movies, Dead Alive, Dark City, The Matrix, Ghost in the Shell, District 9, Private Parts, 24 Hour Party People, Drugstore Cowboy, Heathers, Memento, Hard Candy, Eraserhead, Twin Peaks (TV Series), What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Tudors (TV Series), and always up for anything I haven't seen yet by David Cronenberg and David Lynch. Also have a weakness for Star Trek and occasionally watch shows about cosmology and quantum physics.

Music: Radiohead, Wire, Husker Du, Sonic Youth, Nirvana, My Bloody Valentine, Mr. Bungle, Skinny Puppy, The Dead Kennedies, The Stooges, early King Crimson, "Bitch's Brew" by Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, songs from the Postpunk Chronicles cd, The Krautrock Archives compilation, various goa/psytrance, Chrystal Castles, Squarepusher, Throbbing Gristle, :wumpscut:, some deathrock stuff. My friends call me a musical abomination, a hippiegothindiepunkindustrialraverjazzprogbeatnik. I love a lot of music but I can't say that I like all music. Popular emo stuff kind of makes my stomach sour. But if your into it and you don't mind that I hate it, it's no biggie. The usually hidden part of my personality is kind of emo anyway.
Six things I could never do without
1. Music/Poetry/Art

2. Books/My computer/The internet

3. Philosophy

4. Friends/Family/Certain people (nerds, geeks, dorks, hippies, rebels with or without a cause, mystics, philosophers, artists, musicians, poets, cyberpunks, Satanists, sadomasochists, madmen and other psychiatric statistical cases)

5. Sex

6. My navel
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Neil Gaiman:"Touched by her fingers, the two surviving chocolate people copulate desperately, losing themselves in a melting frenzy of lust, spending the last of their brief borrowed lives in a spasm of raspberry cream and fear." From Sandman Vol VII. Brief Lives. Radiohead: "Please, would you stop the noise? I'm trying to get some rest from all the unborn chicken voices in my head." From OK Computer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hung over and hanging out with awesomely loser friends who stayed over from 80's night at the club where I hate the music but can't stop going.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ran around small town neighborhood alone and naked at night a couple times when I was a teenager. I imagined myself some kind of primeval being thrown into civilization.
You should message me if
You should message me if your navel is more profound than mine.
The two of us
