My self-summary
As if you're gonna read all of this...
Insecure, easily distracted (probably with ADD) perfectionist, the idea is to apply sloppiness in order to get things done. It does work sometimes.
Colorful dresser. Fast walker. Quiet until the right buttons are pushed. Caoutious/Curious. Completely unreliable sleep cycle. I have some slight hoarding tendencies, but i’ll only submit to being called a hoarder if it is agreed that museums should be called hoarding houses.
I hate competitions. I feel ashamed if i win, i feel ashamed if i lose. Even if they made me feel alright, i’d probably still think they’re evil. Some people seem to think that competition is good for progress. I think cooperation is better, it’s usually better for sustainable progress.
Depressive realist. As I see it, the world is already a hard sci-fi dystopia. We’re pretty much post-apocalyptic at this point. A soft, slow apocalypse, no pleasing dramaturgical curve. That’s not to say i don’t think we should resist the decline, i’m all for resisting, i just don’t expect any miracles.
I strive to be a feminist; not to be racist; not to be ableist; not to be transphobic or anything of the like. If i fail, please tell me.
What I’m doing with my life
I’ve worked as a sound technician, as a musician, studied a bit of art and photography but kept nosediving. So for a few years now i’ve been slowly drifting through the oobleck of the Swedish mental health care system, effectively getting paid (the Swedish subsistence level) to be in therapy and (hopefully) get better, even though i'm danish by birth. One of the privileges of being born in Scandinavia.
(I’m not going to list my diagnoses here, but you’re welcome to ask.)
I’m really good at
Googling. Finding my way. Walking far. Staying awake. Avoidance. Being frustrating to people who mean me well. Elaborating, endlessly according to some. Semantic superpositioning. Recognizing and remembering people. (I sometimes fall into this bad habit of freaking people out by listing previous encounters they don’t remember.) Figuring out how tech works, sometimes. Appreciating the absurd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I had this idea of thinking of my musical taste as a color map, setting out primaries and letting you extra- and inter-polate from that, but i kept adding dimensions so i’m just going to jumble some stuff i like together and you can -polate from that:
Tea, Patti Smith, David Lynch, Thomas Mann, Werner Herzog, Boards of Canada, Mazzy Star, Low, Scott Walker, Claire Denis, Clara Rockmore, Cambodian Cassette Archives, Breaking Bad, Albert Camus, Dostoyevsky, Tove Jansson, Can, Moondog, William Eggleston, Arthur Russell, Magazine, Slowdive, Loop, Hyperbole and a Half, Andrei Tarkovsky, Talking Heads, Stanley Kubrick, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Agnes Varda, Residents, Cocteau Twins, The Space Lady, Suicide, Peter Greenaway (A Walk Through H!), Ursula K. LeGuin, Miyazaki, Thelonious Monk, Sun Ra, Fugazi, Akira, Hermann Hesse, David Cronenberg, Cambodian Funk Yodeler (please google that), food should be spicy.
I have this masochistic obsession with watching every superhero movie (and a certain sort of colorful action movies) made even though most superheroes really annoy me. Most of them defend the status quo. If i had superpowers i sure as hell wouldn’t.
Six things I could never do without
Oh man, i get so many stupid ideas about what you could put in this box… The first things i think about is what i would need to survive if (once) civilization collapses and my brain just flashes: “Glasses! Contact lenses!” over and over again. (Moderately nearsighted.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to “get well”. How to worm my way to a sustainable, alternative lifestyle. Sustainability. That i need a space to experiment with all the junk i find. How fucked the world is. + sometimes All The Wrong Things, unfortunately.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well... this particular friday night I made this:
You should message me if
Well, there’s what it says in the “looking for”-section, but also:
- I’ve had this idea that it would be fun to know at least one person in every time zone, to maximize chances that there’s always someone online to talk to. (Obviously i don’t mind “penpals”.)
- Does it go without saying that you should if you just want to chat? It should. If i don’t answer i’m probably just too fucked up by current events or something.
- If you’ve spotted this amazing dumpster full of interesting stuff and want company picking through it.
- If you’re making crazy musics and think you could use some amateurish banjo or pedal steel guitar.
- I’m pretty shy (certifiably) so if you think i should message you and i haven’t, you should probably message me.
The two of us
