Pleasure seeker, information sponge, devil's advocate, "terrorist" (hello, 4Chan Party Van!) Well, now that my DHS dossier is updated....
I'm a lover of great food, especially strange dishes. I've eaten testicles, sweetbreads, and sea urchin roe. I haven't eaten a bug yet (intentionally, that is). Someday, I'll have a Kobe beef steak, but for now a juicy Delmonico will be just fine. Kobe burgers? Overrated (and misleading). I love grilled sausages, especially linguica and brats.
I drink occasionally. My preferences are imported beers (I have several bottles of Chimay that I've been aging for several years), A dry martini (not a "vodka martini"), and a nice, local red wine (variety doesn't matter).
I'm 420 friendly, and fully support medical marijuana.
I'm also interested in mind altering psychedelics like DMT and the related Ayahuasca and Iboga.
I like science fiction and foreign films. Subtitles appeal to my literate nature. Can't get enough of social documentaries. Thick books with no pictures (maps in epic fantasies are acceptable); I also like thin books with more pictures than words, i.e: manga. I've been reading since age four, which my grandmother tells me was the newspaper. Mash-ed Potatoes....
A stint as a college radio DJ has left me with a wide and eclectic taste in music. I primarily like electronic music; however, I cannot fathom the inexplicable rise of copypasta known as "dubstep." Seriously, stop being derivative and make your own beats!
I don't like processed foods, and have finally eliminated a bad soda habit that's been replaced with a smoothie habit. Loving the Bolthouse Farms line, especially their Green Goodness flavor. Used to drink Odwalla Chocolate monsters until I found out that they were owned by Coca Cola (explanation to follow).
I really don't like bigotry, fast food, factory farms, multinational corporations, warfare, social networking, romantic comedies (or any film that doesn't pass the Bechdel Test), and "Bipartisan" politics. Republicans and Democrats suck equally! The American public has completely bought into the illusion of choice. Anarchism ≠ Nihilism, go on, I dare ya to check it out.
Hate is strong and dangerous, but I HATE that people are being misled into thinking that "reality television" is real. It isn't; it is merely unscripted. I also hate that our technology is outstripping humanity's ability to cope with it. We have forgotten the message of the cyberpunks, and our empathy is fading fast. I've read that even texting while walking is becoming dangerous. I have a dark suspicion that cell phones will be the proverbial "bar code on the neck," and required to be on your person at all times. Papiere, Bitte....
The thing that I "hate" the most is that we as a species are trying to cure the ills of this world with the same manner of thought that caused those problems to begin with!
*UPDATE: Apparently, she's hidden her account. You'll just have to take my word for it!
My last job was working for the evil empire known as Zynga Billing Support, which has been an eye opening experience for me. I've since returned to my favorite games by Motion Twin. I'm between jobs at the moment, but my "disability" money is running out, and I refuse to be in anyone's pocket for too long (you truly do get paid less than what you are worth, it's how profit works), unless I can get more than a paycheck from them, such as business or management ideas. I figure I'd join a union to start financing my dream job: selling hot dogs from my own home-built cart. Veggie dogs too. Ask me about my wiener.....
I'm currently working on several artistic projects, including drawing manga, conceptual art, sculpture, CGI, origami, learning the accordion, pallet crafting, cooking up new foods, and video game programming. My magnum opus is a socially-conscious computer game.
Burning Man was fun, but someday, I'd like to visit Auroville.
Amsterdam, Britain, Paris, Rome, Venice, Munich, Chimay, Praugue, Sapporo, and Tokyo are also on my list. Currently learning Dutch (Nederlands).
I'm also great at coming up with artistic ideas, if only I was just as good at implementing them!
Then there's the notepads and notebooks I keep within reach.

FOOD: Grilled Meat, Raw Fish, Fresh Fruits and Veggies, Rice and Grains, Pastries, Natural Ice Cream, Salty Snacks, and just about any type of sausage with any type of mustard. I have a particular weakness for a beef frank with Dijon mustard (always Maille, never Grey "Poop-on"). I prefer Tea to Coffee, and I NEVER drink a certain corporate chain. Y'know, the one promoting the fake bohemian lifestyle? I've been hanging out at Kreuzberg in SLO lately. San Luis Sourdough used to be on the list, but Brian's Bread from A-Town is much better. At some point, SLS quality dropped like a brick.

Here's one thing I can do without: Coca-Cola.
In fact, I am actively boycotting ALL of Coca Cola's products, due to their involvement (or lack of responsible action) in the torture and murder of union organizers in Colombian bottling plants, as well as taking advantage of the gross corruption in India to get away with polluting farmland, wiping out the economy and livelihoods of entire villages.
Learning the Ruby Programming Language, and game making in general.
I've also been swimming (working on my dolphin kick) at the Y.
Nothing like losing weight and your farm tan at the same time!
I will not become a zombie, either real or metaphorical.
Watch out for ECHELON. Think for yourself!
I'd like to start exploring freeganism, so if there are any of you out there, mind if I tag along?
I'm willing to sell hot dogs from an illegal cart. I'd still follow food safety procedures, though.
Another thing: For those who are liking my profile, I have no plans to purchase A-List status, so if you do like what you see, just send me a message. Seriously, just message me. I see 6 new likes since I said this.
Also, let me know if you'd like to see a regional variant of the infamous street dog (like you find in L.A.) here in Santa Maria.
