My self-summary
In the great shipwreck of life, we all fall down.

I'm carbon based, made of pointy bits that hold up the squidgy bits. I'm sarcastic as fuck, I know who I am, I fervently stand by my convictions and I don't give a shit if that upsets you. I do clean up just fine, though, should the need arise.

I'm a polarizing person, get over it. If you can't handle that, or if you're the type to quiet down because we hold different beliefs, I have no interest in you; however, if you're strong enough in your own beliefs to not be offended by mine, we'll do just fine. If you can offer well-worded scrutiny of mine, we'll do even better.

I'm turned on by creative minds, regardless of the medium, but a well-placed semicolon or properly chosen Em dash are unimaginably sexual to me.

I'm equally put off by belligerent cretins who can't take the time to properly evoke their thoughts while attempting to communicate.

A proud Transhumanist, I can be self-destructive nihilist at times, and a self-indulgent hedonist at others. Even Nietzsche loved to dance.
What I’m doing with my life
Attempting to micromanage my desire to pursue games journalism and full-time streaming in contrast with an ever-increasing impulse to walk off into the woods and leave this world behind.

The world we live in is ill, and it's dying, along with our civilization that it nourishes. There's beauty in the destruction, but tragedy in the loss.
I’m really good at
Being articulate. Few things frustrate me more than the use of binary adjectives. Likewise, few things I find as unrelentingly attractive as well-spoken people. Communication is a dance; it's battle; it's war; it's violence, and sex; it's passion. Deceptive and revealing, it's beautiful, and well-used words should evoke all the above metaphors.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, eyes, or jaw line, probably.

Or that I have a pathological, bordering on obsessive need to understand everything I possibly can about the world.

If through my writing/ editing, it's almost certainly that I observe the Oxford comma, as anything less is unnecessarily ambiguous. Not utilizing it will make me wish I could melt your head with my thoughts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It's a guilty admission as a writer that I confess to having finished a terribly limited number of fictional works. Something I wish to remedy, but am no less a slave to.

Works on my bookshelf, if it were unpacked at the moment, would hold a cross-section including Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Jim Meehan's The PDT Cocktail Book, Mariquis de Sade's The Ghosts of Sodom: The Charenton Journals, Darwin's The Origin of Species, and Dawkins' The Selfish Gene.

For films, I'm a slut for anything that illustrates the fragility of subjective reality, and there's always a special place in my heart for the Hellraiser franchise, as well as the Alien franchise. Ripley is my fucking spirit animal, 'cause fuck expectations.

Serialized shows are of less interest to me, but I do appreciate those that strive for high-level writing, despite not having owned a television in nearly a decade.

Consumption of music is a huge passion of mine, and I'll always love true Industrial, as well as many of the subgenres it spawned. Trip-Hop is also a shortcut to my heart, but I'll consume almost anything electronic.

Food is much simpler; anything from either South or East of North America goes. I adore "peasant food" and such dishes constitute the majority of what I cook at home. Be it soups, stews, or curries. Some of the poorest people in the world eat better than most royalty, and we should be humbled by what we have to learn. If you want to win my favour, simply join me for anything Japanese, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean or... well really, anything Asian.

There are few, if any, single flavours I enjoy in this world more than coffee, chocolate, bourbon, ale, mushrooms, and cheese.
Six things I could never do without
1. Air.
2. Shelter.
3. Water.
4. Sleep.
5. Food.
6. Being a dick and giving literal answers in a prioritized list based on their fundamental necessity for sustaining life...
7. Bending the rules to see just how far I can push things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How silly putty picks shit up from comic books.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working in a fucking kitchen, because I hate myself and disposable income almost as much as I love cooking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will not judge you based on who you are, nor how you look, what gender you identify as, the beliefs you hold, the tastes you have, or even company that you keep. I won't even judge you based on the things you say. I will, however, judge you harshly based on how you say them.

Everyone is given the benefit of the doubt; things can only go downhill once you open your mouth. Do make it something interesting to help break the fall, ya?
You should message me if
...you enjoy the dance of words with a new partner.
...well-worded questions or statements have you biting your lip in anticipation of an equally well-crafted response.
...you're comfortable with your beliefs and comfortable with someone else having their own.
...you enjoy constructive, well-thought-out discussions on absolutely anything, regardless of scale or consequence.
...you share similar tastes in media or food.
...you have no filter, and aren't afraid to laugh at a joke, even when everyone else in the room is too uptight to do the same.
