My self-summary
2017 Edits & Updates inbound:

i am an animal lover, i live with three awesome cats. Cat haters need not apply.

[2017 Update]: I recently lost one of my first cats, Buddha.

i'm originally from Aiea, Hawai'i but have lived in or around portland for a while now.

i wear a lot of black. If one had to put me in a box, the term "semi-goth" would likely fit, though i doubt i'll ever look good in fishnet shirts. People often find me pretty intimidating at first but the reality is that i'm painfully shy and normally just sit in my corner of the world, gazing from afar.

[2017 Update]: Man, I rarely got out at all anymore, much less goth things up. Still wear the black though.

i have spent most of my life as either fully vegetarian or pollo-pescitarian. i'm not fully vegetarian right now for reasons i won't discuss, but i hope to return to vegetarianism soon. And no, it doesn't bug me if you eat meat.

i'm a gamer and a nerd with hardcore techno-lust. i'll play anything from The Legend of Zelda to Modern Warfare 2. I play a LOT of Street Fighter. My original NES still works.

i've been trying to play guitar and write music for 17 years, and i love doing it as it makes me believe for half a second that i'm artistic. This doesn't mean i'm any good at it, just that i've been doing it for a LONG time.
What I’m doing with my life
[2017 Update]:
I finished up at school for a while, trying to be an overachiever. Managed to get straight A's until my last semester. Wrote, Directed, and Produced a documentary film, "Ea", during the first semester. You can see it on youtube.

I’m really good at
i honestly don't know. i guess i don't spend enough time thinking about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
i'm a 6'3" large hawaiian goth with long dark hair that often falls in my face, normally on purpose. i'm guessing that the black spot on the horizon is what they end up noticing. that or the hair.

a few years ago, when walking in the rain to meet a friend, that friend told me that i looked like Samara from The Ring, only mutated with the Hulk. i lol'd.

Somehow i went from being someone who hated "lol" to someone who actually uses it. damn my hypocrisy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Product of an 80s childhood and a 90s adolescence. i remember when saturday morning cartoons were still awesome, and almost all of my musical awareness came after 1989. Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and those other "90s Alternative" bands are the reason i picked up a guitar. though i now play and listen to a darker musical list than i used to, my core is still formed with those bands.

Six things I could never do without
My cats
Some playable form of street fighter
Some playable form of the legend of zelda,
my favorite music
A means to listen to said music
My guitar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the past. good times and bad, and what could have been done to prevent or change things i may have messed up so i'm not doomed to repeat those same mistakes.

the future. What the hell am i going to do next and who do i want with me on the journey

The Legend of Neil. Damn that musical number Felicia Day did in that bottle was funny.
On a typical Friday night I am
[2017 Update]:

I used to be found at the industrial/goth nights at either Embers on Wednesdays and Hive on sundays back some time ago, and i may do so again. These days, i don't go out much at all
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Everything i think of to put into here either sounds lame or is way too personal.

I am ashamed to admit i own 3 cars, though only 1 drives right now while the other 2 are made into a single working unit. Yay for classic mustangs.

I mod original xbox systems to play zillions of classic games. My game collection is actually kinda ridiculous these days, and my favorite system is the Sega Saturn.

I loved Lexx.
You should message me if
..you want to...you could leave your friends behind...cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance then they're no friends of mine.....

okay, jokes aside, here's the deal:

I'm horrible at first contact cause i'm never sure what to say. i'd also consider myself socially awkward, but not to the level of stupidity. I am, however, stupidly shy and near creeper like about it. I may find you incredibly interesting or attractive, but it could take me months to say anything to you at all. Try not to hold that against me too much.

I'm very lefty and atheist with interests in nerdy things like high fantasy/D&D, video games, and computer technology.

i'd really like to find someone who shares a lot of these interests, especially on the geek/nerd side (games and movies) or on the musical side (darkwave, synthpop, dreampop, gothic, industrial, symphonic metal).
