... Much like this profile. Actively waiting it, check back in a bit.
I used to work in the tech industry, but became unsatisfied with the market and culture, at least here in Oregon.
For the moment I am a Care Provider working with the developmentally disabled. I'm finding it much more satisfying and fulfilling on all levels, and it is easily the least stressful job I have ever worked.
Like anyone, I'm working on life and trying to shift things into a place where I'm happy with what's going on. It's all a matter of progress and time, and I get a little closer to them every day
Outside of the usual partner-in-crime deal, I am looking for someone to run around and do general geekery with; Conventions, tabletop gaming, coop, camping in Powells for a while, that sort of thing.
I am fundamentally poly, but not seriously attached to anyone at the moment
Also, my photos are old, I'm working on that bit
I'm not a big fan of boiling anything down to a favorite. It disqualifies the qualities of individual persons and works, giving this toxic idea that there is such a thing as 'best'. There's not. Stop it. Even if I were to decide I enjoy something more than most other things, that's a very transient momentary state. Something else will come along, something that has always been there will reveal new qualities.
I do not, that said, blame people for choosing favorites. That's the way our culture works. Find the best, promote it that way. I just think it's something worth working on moving away from.
Removing the stick from the conversation, I enjoy a lot of movies, books, music, and other media for different reasons, and have a vast collection of all of them.
Genres I particularly enjoy include Science Fiction and Fantasy, Dark Comedy, Horror. I like some portion of all flavors of music, but particularly I like things you don't hear on the radio all that often, just as a matter of not having it ground into your eardrums to be memorized like The Little Red Book.
I shut down my profile for a long while because I was having a difficult time thinking of something positive to say. My profile has been self deprecating for a long while. Then I saw a comic that equated doing that to selling an appliance you think doesn't work. You'd have a hard time getting someone to buy a broken DVD player on the merit that it was once did a decent job of playing discs.
The idea being don't push something you don't believe in yourself, and that caused some deep introspective thought
...I've been told this is terribly generic, and I can't be bothered to care. I like it.
From a less obtuse angle, do you like movies that are so bad they make you laugh? Perfect! We can go do something involving that and run from there.
So, drop me a note! I've noticed that most of the people that I meet off of here are those that don't show up under the searches I do
