My self-summary
Self Summary

If you want to talk, you should probably message me. It's not 1950. Also, I don't want to be the jackass clogging up your inbox. So, if you feel like talking or going to have a drink somewhere, message me.

Musician, Leo, German/Scottish. Always planning my next tattoo.

Just quit smoking... but I don't care if you do.

Not political, but Trump is an assclown.
Not religious, but open minded, although not open to conversion.

I've lived all over the country but have spent 12 years in Portland.

I am tolerant of almost anything except animal abuse of any kind. It's one of the only things I can't even really joke about... Almost anything else is fair game.

I value aesthetics; and prefer what most refer to as "alternative" aesthetics: tattoos, piercings, and odd hairstyles.

Generally I don't like the normal version of anything.

I am the musician behind nolongerhuman. (https://www.facebook.com/nolongerhuman.official)
The music can be described as EBM/Goth Industrial, with maybe a touch of punk. It's a very small sub genre of music. Some like it; some hate it.

I work in marketing, and also a mixing and mastering engineer.
I will try anything once.

I'm not so much interested in one night stands or fuck buddies as I am in getting to know you. No, that's not a line. I want to know you and I highly value knowing that you want to know me.

I am intensely curious about people who describe their lives as "perfect" - that implies the need or want for nothing. I think that I would find that state of perfection utterly maddening. I will always strive, but never achieve perfection, because the joy is in the strife, I think. I don't want to meet perfect people, as I myself, am not.

Looking For
I'm looking for more people in my life: for fun, for coffee, late night drives, adventures, bourbon, or pretty much anything. People willing to send the first message. It just makes it so much more fun. People who aren't intentionally vague.

People who would consider themselves, "alternative." Where in the hell did all the alt minded people go? Did everyone join the church of the judgmental, "nothing is funny, and we should all be ashamed for something" people? Good god. Life is hilarious; let's be hilarious together.
What I’m doing with my life
Always learning.
I’m really good at
Switching from my normal persona, to a stage persona.
Cooking pretty much any meal you can think of.
Taking everyday or funny situations and spontaneously performing an improv monologue for whomever I'm around.
Reading people incredibly accurately, which makes for a fun party trick.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told either my hair or lips, or my tendency to launch into serious conversation at a moments notice.

If not that, my forearm tattoo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything sociological, but particularly authors such as Rand, Orwell, Steinbeck, Dickens, Ellis, Dazai, Kafka, Palahniuk, are all favorites, specific books - some being the standard tropes: 1984, The Metamorphosis, No Longer Human, Keep The Aspidistra Flying, Animal Farm, The Belljar, Of Mice and Men, etc.

50's music, old blues music, and pretty much anything with heart and depth. Gary Numan is always amazing, older Wumpscut, the occasional Deathrock track, some goth, lot's of electro, aggrotech, some EDM, some vintage country... I mean... It's kind of all over the place. The only thing it's generally not, is top 40's and modern rap. I in particular dislike ska. I just do not... ska.

I prefer period movies, some Sci Fi, Dexter, Lie to Me, X-Files, House, Millenium, and the original black and white Twilight Zone. Also, Bates Motel, Daredevil, Star Trek, Hellraiser, Bladerunner, and many, many, more.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why in the hell, the actual, literal hell... beards became a thing again. I have literally no idea why anyone finds them attractive.

Song lyrics, where my old friends ended up, new recipes, what the next random city I will end up playing a show in next will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching movies
Working on a remix or new song
At a random bar, doing random things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I looked in the mirror and didn't like what I saw so I changed it.

I pretty particularly dislike professional sports. If you can't drink while you play it, I'll likely not enjoy it. Not to say drinking makes a game; just that bowling, darts, Cards Against Humanity, and ping pong, appeal far more than watching sweaty guys chase balls in stretchy, shiny clothing.
You should message me if
I have "liked" you. It's my way of saying that I think you're interesting and want to get to know you better. There's a chance I'll message you first, but I mostly log onto here when I get an email notification. So, send me a message first so I log on. :)

You prefer intelligent conversations to smarmy self aggrandizing statements.

You're open to alternative lifestyles.

You are good at open ended statements. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to respond to someone who always uses closed ended sentences; I feel like I am trying to solve some inscrutable riddle.

You want to hang out, grab a cup of coffee and talk about anything and everything, want to go to a club, or just want to get to know each other and see where things go. :)
The two of us
