My self-summary
Hello!
My name is Sam, and for now, some bullet points:

-Quite political. Lefty-anarchisty.

-I like a broad spectrum of what folk identify as geeky media.

-I am a GM of pen-and-paper RPG's, currently running WFRP2e, and at long last playing a character in a D&D game.

-I am into history, as well as other human esoterica.

-If I could, I would become a full body cyborg.

-I spend a lot of time thinking about culture, anthropologically.

-learning Kurdish (struggling with grammar)

-Pro polyamory, but not what I'm looking for.
What I’m doing with my life
(Currently) Barwork to pay the bills, and soon to be studying part time.

"Wubalubadubdub!"- Rick Sanchez
I’m really good at
Self deprecation.
French toast.
Empathy.
The first things people usually notice about me
"... in the darkness was the gigantic, blasphemous form of a black thing not wholly ape and not wholly insect. Its hide hung loosely upon its frame, and its rugose, dead-eyed rudiment of a head swayed drunkenly from side to side. Its fore paws were extended, with talons spread wide, and its whole body was taut with murderous malignity despite its utter lack of facial expression."

Or so I have come to conclude from the noiseless screaming and jibbering horror of those I meet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some illustrative book examples :
"Female Power and Male Dominance: on the origins of sexual inequality" by Peggy Sanday (from which you might gleen that I am into Anthropology, Feminism & Marxism).

“The Death of Grass" by John Christopher, 'cus I love fiction about civilization going over the cliff.

And the Song of Ice and Fire series- I grew up with the series, and it grew me out of the self indulgent fantasy stuff i read as a teen'.

Films wise I am becomming more of a cinephile, though I'd say I was still a neophyte in that regard. Suffice to say I love watcing films, al the more so with good company to talk about it with afterwards.

At the moment, I am mostly listening to Andrew Jackson Jihad, DELS, and Sufjan Stephens- but I have a nostalgia for metal and a abiding love for the Queens of the Stone Age.

Also- I love animation, and Steven Universe now has a dedicated corner in my happy place. I have a talent crush on Rebbeca Sugar.
The six things I could never do without
'could never' seems a little unrealistic, but I 'would rather never' do without:
Silly conversation.
Stimulating conversation.
Sugar.
My hard drive of RPG books
Good games.
Steven Universe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Geeky shit'- usually using my background in Anthropology to think up world in which to set RPG's.

Also I'm prone to odd fleeting fascinations (usually historical).

I would say I spend a great deal of time thinking profound philosophical and political ideas, but such ain't true. I have idea's and they aren't to be improved by being rattled around my echo chamber- that's what I need you for.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not that I have a typical just yet, but watching Junk on YouTube (e.g. Game Grumps, Red Letter Media) is a safe bet. Also webcomics!:

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have OCD, which tends to make me my own worst critic, and makes me prone to depression.
You should message me if
You have a love earnest love for stuff, and what to share that with someone- (someone like me, to be specific).
