Never quite know what to say in these spaces. I'm a pasty white guy (photo evidence provided), geeky by inclination and training (I minored in math in college) and I try to be friendly and good to the people around me.
I work, I enjoy watching movies and TV and learning to play guitar. I play video games, mostly on the PC these days, though I still own and use my PS4. I also helped found an anime convention when I was living in Pittsburgh, PA.
I enjoy reading a lot. Particularly fantasy and science fiction. Though I've also been reading a lot of non-fiction the past few years, expanding my literary diet, so to speak.
Beyond the basics, I enjoy talking on almost any topic, so long as there's an interesting discussion to be had. I'm not nearly so interested in exchanging dogma. I try to be open minded to discussions about views that differ from mine, but I've found that certain topics tend to breed vitriol and resentment more than discussion.
I love to read. Mostly I read fantasy and Science Fiction. Specific things to call out include Harry Potter, Kushiel's Dart and Cryptonomicon. I will read just about anything from Jacqueline Carey or Neal Stephenson, and I've really been enjoying Stephen Brust for the past few years as well.
As far as movies go, I have to admit to a weakness for comic book movies. Even some of the bad ones. I am happy to live in an age where there are so many good ones to choose from, as well! Put Tommy Lee Jones, Johnny Depp or Willem Dafoe on the screen and I'll be there just to listen to their voices.
Music, music and more music. I have a strange relationship with music. It's either totally involving, or it's background that I barely pay attention to. I don't tend to hear or understand lyrics on the first listen of a song, and sometimes not even the tenth. I will listen to the sound of a voice without hearing what it says. I deeply love Pink Floyd, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Faith and the Muse among others. I have also picked up a taste for Morcheeba, not least because of Skye Edwards, and I'm sad she's no longer a part of that.
Ah, food. I love to eat, I love to cook. I have the gut to show for it! Sushi is a long time favorite. I try to be vegetarian, but I don't usually do a very good job of it. I love spicy foods, though they don't always love me back. I have found few things that I don't like. Ginger is one. Beer is another. Both have their place, but that place is often not in my meals.
things to read, games to play, people to talk to, satisfying work to do, my cats and a comfy bed.
I'm exploring my kinky side and experimenting with polyamory.
