My self-summary
Prickly and nervous man who wants to meet your cat.

I have little dreams of starting a video rental store, or writing a fantasy novel, or making a monster movie, or directing a play with friends. I need to have a little more financial and emotional stability first, though.

I'm actually new around here and actually need someone to show me around. So I may in fact be trying to make friends with you as opposed to date you.
What I’m doing with my life
This information is on a need-to-know basis (as in, I need to know it soon). Let me know if you need extra hands for your D&D campaign.
I’m really good at
Playing at quoits well, eating conger and fennel, drinking off candles’ ends for flap-dragons, riding the wild mare with the boys, jumping upon joined stools, swearing with a good grace, wearing my boots very smooth, like unto the sign of the leg, and breeding no bate with telling of discreet stories
The first things people usually notice about me
I have nice hair when I actually take care of it
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: "Henry IV" by William Shakespeare, "The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka, "The Counterfeiters" by Andre Gide, "Cities of the Red Night" by William S. Burroughs, "Concrete Island" by J.G. Ballard, "The Duchess of Malfi" by John Webster, The Autobiography of Yukichi Fukuzawa.
-> Last read: "Kappa" by Ryunosuke Akutagawa. 3.5/5. Short and simple, but charming and with some very compelling images.
-> Current reading: "The Arthurian Tradition" by John Matthews. Very peculiar review of medieval King Arthur texts with a strong new age/pagan slant to its ideology.

Movies: Jacob's Ladder, Down by Law, Excalibur, anything Godzilla or Gamera, Christopher Guest, Boogie Nights, The Wrestler, Robocop, Escape from New York, Hellboy, Alien, Hausu, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, THX 1138, Spirited Away, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ikiru, The King of Comedy.
-> Last watched: Her. 4/5. Very sweet. A bit of male escapism with a great Scarlett Johansson performance. Also low-key dystopian, as it depicts a California that has been totally taken over by Bay Area yuppie tech start-ups...

Music: Tom Waits, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Leonard Cohen, Foetus, Momus, Cabaret Voltaire, Danzig, Pentagram, Mr. Oizo, Sébastien Tellier, Big Black, Bathory, Manilla Road, Ulver, Parallels, Kate Bush, John Maus, Donovan, The Mothers of Invention, Haruomi Hosono.
-> Been revisiting Current 93 lately.

Ask me for more of this stuff, I'm full of it.
Six things I could never do without
Spending time alone is important, since that's what enables me to do more hanging out.

Masturbation keeps me sane.

And, like a perfect capitalist, I need to be distracted by my big hoard of books, movies, and albums.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to become happy
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging out with friends, doing indoorsy things (dinner, games, movies) but I can be dragged to a bar if necessary
You should message me if
If you can have fun without drugs and alcohol. I don't teetotal, but I flirt with the idea.

Alternatively, if you don't know what to say, tell me what you think of this video:
The two of us
