I've decided that text is an unreliable indicator of personality. I think it'd be great if OKC added optional video uploading. For example you can meet someone for real and they seem to immediately take to you or not. You can easily tell if their sense of humour is compatible, whether you get each others interests and also looks don't seem as important. But in static text you're easily misunderstood. Even in text conversations you can talk for flipping ages and people still have trouble trusting anyone. Fair enough I think as it's too easy to make yourself seem like something different than you are, which everyone knows. Plus it's also easy for your imagination to overlay a false personality to fill in the gaps.
Yes I know the irony of writing that in text ;)
* resume normal broadcast:
I'm a caring, bubbly person who loves to have fun!... God that made me feel ill. No I'm not going to write a proper profile. Anyway.. for fear of my personallity caving in on itself in a Schrodinger's cat self assessment type of way, I have to say it depends on who you are. By myself I like to make stupid noises including, but not exclusively funky beats, 303's, cat sounds. Which leads nicely onto my interest in making music (involving all of the above), which leads not so nicely onto my interest in making games and basically anything where you actually MAKE something and not just keep something someone else made going.
*I* find myself hilarious, which as you know immediately makes you not funny by saying that you are (see I told you about that guys cat). I consider myself smart but I prefer to think about things for myself as opposed to reading a book and absorbing that into my 'I'm super interesting, honest!' cache.
I'm irritatingly honest which usually means people think I'm being mean. Basically I can't be bothered beating about the bush so if you ask me a question you'll get an answer, which bizarrely most people don't expect.
I'm also friendly, easy going and tolerant, which is remarkable when you consider how much I despise stupid people*
ps I'm lazy answering messages, but I'll answer them eventually**
* Ok, perhaps just willingly stupid people.
** may be a lie.
I am tall, pointy, and pliable
I'm also currently a part-time teacher, teaching "how to make computer games, no not MMORPG's", which I find really amusing except I worry about their assignments more than they do..
I also write and perform music tidbits, of the moviesk, atmosy, tuney, electronicy, no vocally type.
The other 'job' that I do is writing a commercial game with a small team of other people desperate not to get a real job. This is our own company with the long-term goal of making enough money to bathe in.
Music: Boards of Canada, Ulrich Schnauss, Bjork, Autechre, Aphex Twin, Jean Michelle Jarre, Kraftwerk, Orbital and if I HAD to mention 'real' music then maybe The Smiths, The Cure, ColdPlay, The Killers and I really like Aqua's Barbie Girl... no seriously.
Books: Well it's at this point that most intelligent people think I'm a moron because I don't really read books, or ever have. I read stacks of non-fiction, science articles and tech manuals, but I guess that doesn't count. Now this comes down to simply doing other stuff.. perhaps if I read more books that would have been more descriptive.
Food: Curry.. THAT'S ALL
People who aren't stupid. So I can whinge about stupid people to them.
Stupid people. They give me something to whinge about to people who aren't stupid
I like thinking about religion and how utterly bizzare it is. I also like thinking about cats and how super purry they are.
