My self-summary
I'm paradoxically laid back while being passionate to the point of frenzy. I think I might be some manner of either a genius or an idiot, probably both. Often life seems like more trouble than it's worth, and I have to tap into my berserker rage against existence to keep me going. Byronic hero aspiring to be an Übermensch. Chaotic Good alignment.

All my pictures are a few years old, I look a bit healthier now, and sometimes I have the facial hair of a swashbuckler. En garde!

I had cripplingly severe depression through most of my college years, and had to take some time off because of it. I'm much better now, and at most depression and I have an on-again-off-again relationship. I can't blame it for crawling back though, I'm entertaining company.
What I’m doing with my life
I work part time as a problem solver/snake charmer (speaking figuratively here). I live with my parents, we don't hate each other. I'm slowly but surely chipping away at student loan debt for my bachelor's in psychology, which I use every day, just not in a vocational way. Writing is highly therapeutic for me, so I try to force myself to do it a little every day.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, saying wise-sounding things, saying very awkward things, saying really shocking things, keeping a straight face while spewing utter bullshit, walking too quietly for someone of my stature, and literally scaring the piss out of people when they notice me standing next to them, run on sentences, playing NES tunes on the guitar by ear, coming up with ideas for stories, and criticizing my own writing.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people notice would be my nigh-freakish height, then if I open my mouth to speak, how deep my voice is. If you can pull yourself away from the seductive tone of my voice long enough to hear what I'm saying, you'll notice my attempts at appearing smart and funny. After that, you'll probably feel bad for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too god damned many to remember and put in the form of a list, but I'll go ahead and attempt the impossible.
I like A Song of Ice and Fire, the Dark Tower, Clive Barker horror stories, H.P. Lovecraft, The King in Yellow, some Dickens, some Kafka, Charles Dickens, and William Blake.
For movies, I believe I've seen around 85 or so of some random list of 100 films to see before you die, though that's unrelated to the suicidal ideation I experienced under depression. I like Alien, Aliens, Terminator 2, Hellraiser, Candyman, The Shining, Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars (not as much with the prequels), some Star Trek movies, most if not all Tarantino films, Antichrist and Melancholia by Lars Von Trier, The Neverending Story (though the book is MUCH better), The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Legend, The Director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven (it had Jaime Lannister before he was Jaime Lannister, and he didn't even make it into the theatrical cut!), Prometheus (I don't care that no one else liked it), Mad Max Fury Road, which I saw 4 times in the theater, and easily would have seen at least 20 more times, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (the best Marvel movie), and Super, which I strongly recommend for sad people, pay close attention to the beginning and ending, specifically the bit about "perfect moments". Makes me cry every time.
As for music, mostly classic and alternative rock, some classical and jazz as well. I could probably find something I like in any genre, even rap and country, which seem to be the most hated on this site (Psyche Origami and Dwight Yoakam, respectively.)
I like game of thrones, various comedy shows, and certain cartoons.

Videogames, I like a lot of them so I'll just name a few. I really enjoy Skyrim, Starfox 64, Dynasty Warriors, Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Nier, Castlevania, Fallout, Drakengard and Megaman 2. Also Shadow of the Colossus and Ico, just played them recently. Awesome.

I like some anime too, Cowboy Bebop, Berserk (the one from the nineties), Samurai Champloo, Trigun, and Gundam, my favorite series about big stompy robots.
Six things I could never do without

Ah yes, good ol' SHITIC.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to steer humanity towards a future that's more like Star Trek, and less like either Blade Runner or Mad Max. Currently, I don't have any good answers.
Other than that, mostly ideas for stories, characters, and settings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Writing, then masturbating to some kinky stuff and/or playing videogames. Tends to gunk up the controllers, so I can't say I recommend it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What, the masturbating remark wasn't enough?
You should message me if
Message me if you want to or feel like you should. Exercise that Free Will!
