My self-summary
I'm a bisexual polyamorous techno-wierdo. I'm in an open marriage with darlingray-gun.

I've been more interested in compersion lately than directly engaging myself with others. For the time being I'm focused on networking with the rare folk who sympathize with this lifestyle. If a thing happens, a thing happens. But life is a sticky morass and I've found it hard to extricate myself from it to date on a whim.

I enjoy art; artsy displays, artsy paintings, artsy writing. The art of movies, the art of music. The art of video games. Yes, I did say that last thing.

I'm not well-versed in any of it.

Video games are a large part of my identity and I take them seriously as a narrative form.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a son, and that means I make dad jokes and it is the best. Not much longer now before I embrace dad fashion too. Shorts with socks and slippers here I come!

My love and I are expecting a youngling soon. He's going to have a nerd name!

In my off-off time, I lay down with the Silmarillion and try to comprehend it on a deeply personal level. I wanna get colorful bookmarks and carry it around like a pretentious nerd bible.
I’m really good at
Performing my own PC maintenance. Writing. Sokoban.

I am passably good at:
Love2D in Lua

I am learning:
Management
The first things people usually notice about me
I twitch a lot, and I have superior hair growth genetics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Videogames: I like sidescrolling platformers and sidescrolling adventures; classics such as your Marios and your Dankey Kangs and Castlevanias, along with some oddities here and there – recently Battleblock Theatre, Risk of Rain. I enjoy multiplayer bizarro-fests; Dokapon Kingdom, Smash Bros.. RPGs and FPSes though both of the older variety.

Tabletop Gaming: GURPS, D&D, Warhammer, CoC, Mordheim. GMing GURPS again is a dream of mine. I can never find the players or the time. Mostly the time.

Books: My mind was formed earlier in life by the likes of Robert Howard, Haruki Murakami, Terry Pratchett, Ann McCaffrey, H.P. Lovecraft, and Tolkien. I'm a bit of a LOTR nerd, and also a fan of fantasy art books (my most positive take from the tragedy that was Age of Conan is its art book.). I have a love-hate relationship with the preachy, pretentious, typo-laden yet imaginative world of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. I keep up with George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Movies: I'm a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and have high expectations for Batman vs. Superman. I usually watch Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli films these days, but I'm a fan of Kurosawa films. My favorite movies right now are probably Mrs. Doubtfire and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.

Music: My favorite band is Nightwish. Through them I grew attached to Sonata Arctica, Tarot, Charon, and formed a love affair with symphonic metal in general; Kamelot, After Forever, Epica. Variously also Celesty, Korpiklaani, and Mandragora Scream.

TV: Cartoons all the way. 90's Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. The DCAU. Beetlejuice the cartoon. Various other shows I have at one time marathon'd but lost track of: Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, True Blood.

I am a New Whovian, though. I occasionally watch some of the old serials just to experience them.

I'm watching a lot of intro anime these days.

Food: I've recently given up any meat that is not from the sea, because I am a huge fan of ingesting mercury. There are no fruits or vegetables I dislike, but I grew up with home grown squash, zucchini, tomatoes, broccoli, and peppers. I eat something spicy at least once a day, and champ peanut butter. I tear up mushrooms.
The six things I could never do without
-An awesome group of friends that have been keeping in touch since Junior High
-My family
-The free time to (try and) create
-Escapism
-Crimethink
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Projects I am working on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday isn't equivalent to the party night for me. On my day off I probably get people together to play video games. On every other weekend I play with my son. The rest of the time I'm trying to fuck, drink, and smoke my way to an early grave.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a chameleon, and an embarrassingly clumsy one at that.
You should message me if
I like friendships, and I like them complicated and nebulous. Don't ask me why. It's actually not a common thing to like it seems!
