My self-summary
Free-floating, contingent accumulation of transient, obsessional states, searching for the Aleph.

In less wanky terms: I make art. I wander around and think about stuff. Occasionally, I say/write something interesting, and sometimes it gets published.

Despite my profession, when I hear of truth/beauty/authenticity/meaning/etc, I reach for my pistol. Except I don't have one. I suppose I could get a water pistol, and fill it with something unpleasant.

Thought of the Now:

We should probably just call cat/dog/etc fancy Fleshcraft.
What I’m doing with my life
Looking for reality effects and strange attractors in all the wrong places.

More prosaically, trying to line up my next few projects while fending off the tedious yet regrettably necessary business of getting through life.

Oh, and gathering the necessary know-how to build a robotic head.
I’m really good at
spotting cats and other small creatures at long distances. Not the greatest of superpowers, but I'm not complaining. The false positives can be a bit bizarre, though; "hey, a cat! No, wait, that's a plastic bag."

I can click my tongue really, really fast. It seems to amuse people.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I'm trying quite hard to remember who the hell they are. If I somehow catch myself and effortlessly segue into a random conversation that is designed to remind myself of who they are, it's that I've suddenly started hectoring them on some wild tangent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The first of each to pop into my head were Tournier - The Ogre, Tarkovsky - The Sacrifice, Winterkälte - Structures of Destruction. Could be favourites. Let's see, what else... Ballard, Kurosawa, Dopplereffekt? Borges, Fellini, Animal Collective? I never could do a proper list of favourites. Shintaro Kago? Man Bites Dog? Neubauten?

If you think Ryu Murakami ought to hunt Haruki down with a sniper rifle from a helicopter, we will be excellent friends. Like "providing covering fire while you make off with the Kusanagi" friends.

Food-wise, I have an irrepressible urge to try things I've never had. Horsemeat, wiggly octopus bits, viscera of multiple species prepared in all kinds of fascinating ways. I'll go for almost anything, but on a daily basis I am fueled by espresso, ethanol, muesli, and boring-ass meals that may be described as "a pile of meat next to an even bigger pile of vegetables."

The six things I could never do without
A revolver and five bullets makes for a rousing game of Russian Roulette.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Generally, everything. Of late: What to get in Verso Books' flash ebook sale.
On a typical Friday night I am
Emulating his most august personage, Bernard Black. Or laughing at pictures of frogs, I dunno.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a brass robot, for my people are the feral children of the internet.

Less cryptically, if you're an irreverent, profane hedonist with a deep antipathy towards received dogma - like, if it makes you want to tear your hair out, plait a garrote and start racking up a bodycount.

Or, if you'd like to have a go at Portal 2's co-op campaign.
