I'm a tech geek/martial artist/repressed writer. I'm a male aware of his own privilege. I embrace new world philosophy while proud of my Eastern European culture. I work late hours and odd days, and most of my friends are settled with kids, so I'd like to find more people locally. It's tough to break through Toronto's clique-ish mindset, so here I am.
I also pay more attention to the questions section of a profile
than the self-summary. Although it's always interesting to read
about how people see themselves, I find how the questions are
answered usually paints a clearer picture. Don't you?
I'm seriously rediscovering my love for Muay Thai. The rigorous training, the conditioning, the exhaustion after an intense workout is a high that grabs my entire being.
I train martial arts and teach people to defend themselves.
I'm also in pursuit of that elusive balance in my life where one achieves serenity.
Technology, I can fix a computer and a smartphone in my sleep.
Politics, from the idiotic, to the shameful, to the strategically brilliant, I enjoy debating about local and international issues.
Puns, I've made Spider Robinson groan once. (bonus points if you know who that is)
I also like to read about the human condition, sexuality, and different ethical relationship models . I've also recently been delving into Gender and Sexual Diversity issues. The way we see ourselves and others is changing, and it's important to keep up.
I've recently developped a passion for physics, quantum theory, and hard science in general. I feel like my brain is growing, and I need to feed it with something new.
Movies: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Hong Kong Action, any movie that shows the triumph of the human spirit, comedy.
Music: I mostly listen to EBM and Industrial, bands like Cruxshadows, Combichrist, And One, and Apoptygma Bezerk. But I do run the gamut of 80's, Irish trad, and have been known to listen to Delerium, Tory Amos, Blackmore's Night, and even some Lady Gaga (if you tell anyone, I will cut you!)
Foods: Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Greek, Arabic, Scottish (Yes, I like haggis).
Also, how Mars is now entirely populated by alien robots.
