My self-summary
People are, I believe, mostly the way we allow them to be. So whoever you think I am will probably depend on the space you grant me.

Otherwise, I like decrepit, hidden, secret, strange and otherwise weird kinds of things and people.

Oh! And I have an awful sense of humor. Absolutely terrible. Really. You'll be horrified. In fact, it's probably better for your mental health if you just left.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach English while still finishing my studies in both English and German pedagogy. I've also finished my studies in Comparative Literature.

I love to read, watch movies and play games; in short, I have a thing for fictional worlds. I also enjoy long walks in nature (Donau-Auen are really great) and a bit of hiking.

All of this, whenever possible, with friends or family.
I’m really good at
reading out loud.

Can one be good at arguments?

I produce strange metafiction and mediocre poems, not sure if I'm good at that, but I like it.

I've become a sort of unintentional film critic over the years.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love all sorts of stories, but I have a tendency towards sci-fi, horror, fantasy and all kinds of old classics. I enjoy reading 30ies Weird Tales authors, Bradbury, Eco, Calvino, Lem, all sort of myths and folktales, and I have a faible for children's picture books.

Movies: Basically anything that's not a chick-flick or torture porn. Big fan of Tarkovsky's STALKER, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the new Mad Max, the old Asterix cartoons, Studio Ghibli anime, Tarantino movies, anything del Toro makes ... the list goes on.

Series: Not a huge fan of series per se, but I enjoy: Sherlock, Ash vs. Evil Dead, Baccano!, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Gravity Falls.

Comics: Hellboy, Batman and some small Dark Horse stuff. Have you read Umbrella Academy? I like anime and manga, but feel way past shonen, so Bleach or Naruto bore me. Except for Ranma 1/2. That shit cracks me up.
The six things I could never do without
- People (though I feel private time's equally important)
- Woods. Because trees are great.
- Good food and sex
- Something to read/write/watch
- I feel I'm somewhat internet-dependent
- ???
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Memetics
- Archetypes, myths, tropes and other social/psychological/media-related pattern
- The evolution of the eye (and evolution in general)
- Stories to tell, and how to tell them
- making lists of things I like
You should message me if
you can connect with anything I wrote here? If you're like "Bah, movies! Books! *grumblies* Can't stand that shite!" then maybe I'm not the one.

Do you like to talk? Honestly, I don't want to have a specific sort of person in mind, as long as we get along well :)

Please don't message me if you're one of those people who might just stop responding at any point, forever. If that's how you treat conversations, might be a hint as to why you're here in the first place.
