I honestly don't know what else to say so if you've got a question that wasn't answered anywhere else on the profile, ask.
This would be far more detailed but I have issues writing about myself unless I apply me to a fictional setting.
Lastly, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INTJ
Keirsay Temperament: Mastermind.
"So we make stories of our own, in fevered and envious imitation of our Maker, hoping that we'll tell, by chance, what God left untold. And finishing our tale, come to understand why we were born." - Clive Barker
"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." -Ray Bradbury
I'm a jack of all trades. I mostly write. I also act when I find roles. Aside from journalistic works and reviews, I work on a lot of different fiction. I might as well see where that takes me. I finished a Philosophy Bachelors and an English Literature Masters from Northeastern Illinois University, but my research is ongoing. I am in the last half of a Library & Information Science Masters at Dominican, through which I'm currently working as a faculty research assistant for two different professors on multiple different projects. I'm doing digital services work at a university library. A group of friends and I developed and self-published a game. I've also started dabbling with filmmaking with another group.
I also occasionally have friends coming to me asking for advice or help regarding the paranormal. So I give what help that I can.
I also have random streaks of artistry, but not in terms of sculpting or painting. I'm a writer, actor (at least when I find roles) and creative political activist.
Physically according to others: beard, eyes, smile, body language. All of which apparently make me look like I'm plotting (I am, but not the way that people tend to think) or about to make a bad/corny dad/dirty joke (sometimes) when I don't look like a sagely philosopher.
Personality: People think I'm brilliant but also have a volatile mood. Have a tendency to brood. Think Gothic hero, Sherlock Holmes, or the Doctor. Oh. They also notice my nerdiness/geekiness.
As for film, I'm big on horror, sci-fi, film noir/crime, comedy, war movies, period pieces, well I watch pretty much everything. More often than not, it's usually horror. However, I write within and about horror.
In terms of TV, most of the time now I'm usually watching BBC America, Syfy, the Science Channel, National Geographic, or AMC. I also love the show Castle.
In terms of music I prefer classic rock, blues, jazz, classical, folk and country in general.
Food, well, I love food and I'm going to have a friend starting to teach me to cook soon.
something to write on
If I find something to do, it's usually getting together with a group of friends and either gaming or going through movie nights, which can be just going to a movie theater or hanging out at one of our houses. Usually the movies nights focus on bad movies that can be made fun of, though if we go to a movie theater we try to find something that at least looks entertaining.
Another that happens is I usually dive into games (video, board, dice, pen-and-paper, and narrative games), partially because some of my work and a considerable amount of my academics revolve around games, gamer culture, narrative theory, etc.
In terms research, part of what I research and attempt to do is theorize what the coming technological singularity means for literature and literacy.
Before you ask about clubs, I don't tend to go to clubs simply because of the fact that club music and large groups of people don't really mix that well with me. What passes for club music just gives me a headache and large groups of people make me anxious and give me a bigger headache. I'm more of a dive bar kind of guy.
If I'm not doing something creative, I get depressed.
While writing I tend to get the scenes that I'm writing as well as music to the scenes playing in my head. It usually means that I'm trying to compose the music that's playing in my head while writing just in case. You never know when random compositions might actually come in handy.
I actually like watching "chick flicks" and romantic comedies, despite what my favorites section and knowledge base might make people think (horror obsession).
If you've got any spooky stories to share.
If you're geeky as hell too.
Lastly, if you love to read.
One request on my end though. Don't bore me with messages solely saying "hi," "hey there," etc. Unless its the start of a chat file rather than a standard message. In that case, "hi" or "hello" or the like is acceptable as it is far more immediate and likely that I would get it quickly.
