My self-summary
I'm a professional programmer at a heartless multinational conglomerate.

I have a wide array of interests, mostly clustered on the academic end of nerdy: linguistics and recreational math (both of which I'm terrible at), film and genre literature, conlangs, and generative fiction, among other things.
What I’m doing with my life
I spend all my daylight hours at work, pretty much. When I get home, I watch anime or argue on IRC.

I make shitty experimental music.

I live alone with my cat. I'm a cat lord.
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
My books, my computer, music, caffeine, mechanical pencils (GOOD ones), and my cat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The situationist movement, oulipo, and retrofuturism.

The sapir-worf hypothesis.

Memory reconsolidation. Social priming. Social contagion.

Fish-falls and frog-falls. Sleep paralysis. Ultraterrestrials.

The possibility of a quantitative science of experimental literature. Alchemy and mysticism as an early form of pop-psychology. Fringe political movements where one extreme blends into its opposite, like accelerationism. Fully automated fiction generation.

Cut-ups as bibliomancy. Markov chains as bibliomancy. Bibliomancy as apophenia. Apophenia as bibliomancy. The eliza effect. The tetris effect (both). The results of priming upon memory reconsolidation. The results of priming on priming. The results of priming on apophenia. Horn clauses.
On a typical Friday night I am
On IRC, or watching a movie. Alternately, I also spend a lot of time on the Cool Freaks Wikipedia Club and Unsuccessful Useless Unpopular Memes facebook groups. When I'm not doing those things and not at work, I am scrolling mindlessly through tumblr.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I absolutely love really crappy harem shows -- especially if they have a supernatural element. I overanalyze the hell out of them, too. Usually, if you look too closely at a piece of trashy media, you open up wide vistas of unexpected possibility.
You should message me if
you're bored? You think my weird-ass obsessions are interesting?
