Now that I have your attention: I'm a twenty-year old, fairly masculine acting gay guy with artsy aspirations, a love of music, literature and the bizarre.
I know a lot about music and have a very strong appreciation for all sorts of genres. I was raised around music and music is in my blood. Most of my music is older than I am, but I seem to gravitate towards the alternative music of the 70's and 80's. Musically, I tend to emphasize texture and interesting sounds over melody. I like lyrics that are poetic or clever. I have a thing for dark, dissonant music and have a huge love of the gloomy alternative music of the 80's. I listen to a lot of Post Punk, Gothic Rock, Alternative Dance, Industrial, Glam Rock, Proto-Punk, Psychedellic Rock, New Wave, Art Rock, Emo Pop, and Synthpop.
I read a lot of Science fiction, horror, satire, transgressive fiction, and classics. The more a book makes me think, the better. I like crazy, larger than life characters and as far as the writing itself goes I like authors with a caustic wit. My favorite author is Philip K. Dick, followed closely by Chuck Palahniuk. I also am a fan of the Dune Chronicles by Frank Herbert
I watch a lot of anime. A few of my favorite series are Serial Experiments Lain, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Durarara!, Excel Saga, and Madoka Magica. Most of my favorite shows are animated, with a few exceptions such as Twin Peaks and Tales from the Crypt.
I am seriously technologically behind as far as gaming goes and I often find newer games overwhelming. It never really occurs to me when I actually have money to burn to go out and buy a new system, and I am perfectly content with my Super Nintendo and my Play Station 2. I really like RPGs, especially Final Fantasy and the Mother series. I am also fond of Fighting Games like Tekken and Bloody Roar and Horror Games. I really suck at First Person Shooters and the only one I can really play with any degree of success is Goldeneye haha.
I love to cook, although this is a fairly recent hobby. I love to experiment with various spices and so far my favorite things to make are Montreal Style Steak with chopped Mini-Bello Mushrooms and Cayenne Pepper Chicken with ginger rice. My favorite quick fix is either Three Cheese Pizza Pockets or Spicy Shin Raymun Cups. I LOVE GINGER and have been known to polish off an entire case of ginger beer in one day. My favorite ice cream is Mint Chocolate Chip, especially when drenched in dark chocolate hot fudge. If I'm going out to eat I'll usually go for sushi or poutine.
