My self-summary
"What is the haps my friends?"

If you visit Qwantz for the awesome dinosaur comics than when I explain that I am the Utahraptor most of the time you will maybe know what I mean. For example: I object to stomping indiscriminately and think that being disemboweled by a Utahraptor is way scarier than being stomped by a T-Rex.

And to all you "Socialist Libertarians" out there the Utahraptor sends a very hearty I DISAGREE. If you are a socialist you are NOT a libertarian and if you are a libertarian you are NOT a socialist. Seriously dudes and ladies, how did you fuck that one up? Just decided one bright morning that the words socialist and libertarian sounded cool together? You people make me sad. Please stop.

I am Concerned, Thoughtful, and Fast
What I’m doing with my life
In other news I am currently happily dating A Dude (well, insofar as love is compatible with happiness) and being bored by most of the people I meet. I also waste time on OkCupid quizzes. This is why I have a profile here in the first place: the making and taking of quizzes.

Which is to say I do not want anyone up in my base freaking out my dudes with bizarro sexual what have you: as my friend the T-Rex says "I am busy with non-disgusting activities."
I’m really good at
Finding ways to waste time artistically.
The first things people usually notice about me
No one notices a raptor 'til it's TO LATE.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Lovecraft (Dream Quest of the Unknown Kadath, esp), Charles Stross (The Atrocity Archives esp), Sheri S.

Jerome, Connie Willis, P.G. Wodehouse, Nathaniel Hawthorne (House of the Seven Gables, esp), Victor Hugo (Toilers Of The Sea esp)...maybe I should leave room for other things...

(B) Enchanted April, Amelie, Lovers Of The Arctic Circle, and When Night is Falling - I am an idealist and a romantic as well as a dromaeosaurid. Also Brain Candy, Donnie Darko, The Matrix, Iron Monkey, LOTR, Mulholland Drive, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1&2, Time Bandits (ah, the days of REAL midgets), Labyrinth, I've Heard The Mermaids Singing, Mansfield Park, Smiley's People, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Ghost In The Shell, Prospero's Books, Monty Python movies...

TELEVISION: Poirot (with David Suchet - the ultimate Utahraptor), Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister, South Park (often but not always), PUPPIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD!, Reno 911, Crank Yankers, Trigger Happy TV, Tipping The Velvet...which is kind of a movie but also kind of tv...MOVING ON.

(C) Weird Jazz (Cowboy Bebop sound track for example), klezmer, blues, folk, VIOLIN MUSIC if its well done, punk and ska as long as it's silly rather than political (inarticulate baby leftists annoy me even more than their more articulate elders), some metal, some bluegrass, only a little country, madrigals and baroque music, most chamber music, Philip Glass, Kronos Quartet, Shostakovitch, duduk music...

(D) West coast Vietnamese, Vietnamese in general, Mexican (what I've had here), HOME COOKED PERUVIAN FOOD IS THE BOMB. It's true. Anyway, Thai food (curries), Italian (not the cheese and meat soaked variety however), Greek, Ethiopian, Moroccan...basically all good vegan food in its many guises. Not that I'm vegan. Really. That would make no sense me being a Utahraptor and all.
Six things I could never do without
Mountains, a body that can run fast and disembowel things, teeth, books, brains, people to DISAGREE with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, Love, and Heavy Weight Wrestling.

(Yeah, you know who you are.)
On a typical Friday night I am
DISAGREEING with T-Rexs. Typically.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know that it is green.

You should message me if
You are a T-Rex. You are NOT a T-Rex. You think you MIGHT BE A T-REX and want to know what to do about it. Not that I can or will tell you - but your correspondence might entertain me.

Peace Out all you web-surfing Dudes and Ladies! Also Peace Out all you individuals who are non-gender specific or "differently" gendered in ways I don't have time to verbaly single out and acknowledge!
The two of us
